More on Alternative Candida Treatment

I'll do my best to try and relay what I've learned as a patient about candida/lgs/IBS. My practioner is a chiropractor who specializes in kinesiology. He goes to seminars and takes trainings every couple of months. I believe he is on the leading edge of what this field has to offer. In the simplest cases, he has had success using a homeopathic remedy from a company in Germany named Unda. They have one particular remedy that really works for some people. 5 drops three times a day for three weeks and they are done. Another situation that he sees is where heavy metal problems are the key to the gut problems. Once he assists the body in dumping the heavy metals, everything falls into place rapidly. Other patients respond really well to a supplement by a company called Thorne. He told me that there is a practioner in Colorado who seeminly gets consistently amazing results using the Thorne product. And still, there are other cases that take more effort.

His general approach would be to start slow. He would do some accupressure adjustments to "alert" the body to the situation and try to engage the body's ability to heal itself. Possibly supplementing with a homeopathic or whatever he tests is needed. He is sensitive to the cost of supplements so he tends to try and start with the simplest approach first. And then he ramps up from there. Some patients end up needing the full meal deal. I think one of his favorite general protocols is the essential fatty acids, a probiotic called Primal Defense, HMF Forte (a great acidophollus blen), a homeopathic or two or three (as needed for the kidney&liver support and the candida) and Mircrohydrin (he believes it helps with absorption). And usually by the time a person is desperate enought to go to him, their adrenals are shot and they need support for that, blood sugar levels, and vitamin B supplementation.

He would never tell someone to not take a drug that they think would work - like Nystatin or Diflucan. But his preference would be to heal the problem from the inside out and let the body do the job with the support it needs.

I think that's the best explanation I can give from my patient viewpoint. Hope it helps!

Fondly,
Sharon

Thanks, Sharon.

I appreciate your help. Once one understands to enlist the help of what Mother Nature gave us, many options open up.
