Symptoms of Candida and Candidiasis

“As long as there is breath in my body I will never ever cease to be a seeker after truth.”

TRUTH:  If left untreated YEAST will shut your organs down and kill you!   It almost happened to a good friend of mine!

Candida is a type of fungus (yeast) which exists in the body. In a healthy body, it doesn`t cause any problems, but when an overgrowth occurs, it can result in a condition called candidiasis. Candidiasis can lead to many conditions in the body such as thrush, abdominal bloating, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

Candidiasis

Candidiasis is basically a twentieth century disease, resulting from medical developments like antibiotics, birth control pills, ulcer medications, and estrogen replacement therapy (HRT). And it can be triggered at a very young age, when children are first being treated with antibiotics (ear and throat infections).

Candidiasis is a fungal infection that is caused by a yeast known as Candida albicans.

This fungus is usually present in the mouth, throat, gastrointestinal tract and the genital region. It can also be present on the skin. Under normal circumstances, the fungus does not pose any risk to the body because the number of the fungus is kept under control by other bacteria. However, when the fungus multiplies, that is when candidiasis sets in.Candidiasis usually is seen to develop in people with compromised immune system. If the infection is not treated, it can become quite serious. Candidiasis can develop in the blood, and from there it can affect different organs of the body, including the brain.

 

Although widespread, candidiasis, or yeast overgrowth, is generally overlooked by the medical establishment because it’s symptoms so closely mimic those of other conditions. Alternative physicians, however, recognize the seriousness of candidiasis, and where conventional medicine has often been ineffective in treating candidiasis, various alternative methods offer much hope for success.

Everyone has candida, a form of yeast ( Candida Albicans ), normally confined to the lower bowels, vagina and the skin. In healthy individuals with strong, functioning immune systems, it is harmless and kept in check by “good” bacteria, called Bifidobacteria and Acidophilus. But if the balance of the intestinal environment is altered by a compromised immune system or other factors, then opportunistic candida proliferates, infecting other body tissues. The candida becomes pathyogenic, transforming from a simple yeast into an aggressive ( mycelial ) fungus that can severely compromise one’s health. This condition is known as “candidiasis”.

According to James Braley, MD, medical director of Immuno Labs, Inc., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the fungal form of candida appears to permeate the gastro intestinal mucosal lining and breaks down barriers to the blood stream. ” When the fungal form of the candida occurs in the body, allergic substances can penetrate into the blood more easily, where they form immense complexes, and even promote food allergy reactions, ” Dr Braley says. Since their symptoms are often interrelated, he emphasizes that candidiasis should usually be treated together with food allergies.

Candida Symptoms

  • Frequent stomach pains and digestion problems
    • Skin problems (skin infections, eczema, psoriasis, acne)
    • Foggy brain / Trouble concentrating
    • Constant tiredness and exhaustion
    • Anxiety
    • Mood swings
    • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
    • Anger outbursts
    • Irritability
    • Headaches
    • Intense cravings for sugars, sweets, and breads
    • Itchy skin

Just having one or two of the symptoms listed above does not necessarily mean you have Candidiasis, but having several of these could be sign of a Candida overgrowth or food allergy, which has similar symptoms.

Candida is the most dangerous of all the germs that can take over your intestinal tract after being treated with Antibiotics,Cipro or doxycycline.

It is a member of the vegetable family. It is a cousin to “molds”. Yeasts are among the oldest living life forms on earth. They are a single celled life form containing no chlorophyll. There are many different types of yeast. Yeasts are common on plant leaves and flowers, on the surfaces of skin and the intestinal tract of animals. The type of yeast that we use to make bread or brew alcoholic beverages is different then Candida. These are thought as food yeasts. Candida is not a food yeast. It is not allowed to be used in the making bread or beer etc. Candida is thought of as pathogenic yeast. Pathogenic means that it can cause disease.

Candida is referred to as “dimorphic”, which means it can exist or live in 2 different states or forms. As”yeast” it is a single cell plant life. It has a large, round, thick spore that is shaped like a chicken egg. It is asexual, which means it does not need a mate to reproduce. It reproduces by “budding” or growing buds. Do you recall seeing buds forming on the branches of trees or plants? Candida looks similar. As it grows it resembles a bunch of grapes. As it spreads it grows more branches, which then “buds” more bunches of “grapes”. This is the way Candida appears in its other form or state, which is “fungal”. Here it looks like lots of little beads strung together by threads. Just like there are safe yeasts, there are safe fungus. Mushrooms are an example of a fungus, which does not produce disease. Eating mushrooms will not cause candida.

Candida eats sugars and some fats that way animals do. This is how it feeds. Candida loves the dark, warm and moist environment of the intestines. It attaches itself to the intestinal wall and when it is in the fungal form tries to bury itself deep into your intestinal lining. It grows roots (like a weed) digging into the lining of your intestinal tract looking for food. When it does this it produces infections and illness in your body.

Candida is the most dangerous of all the germs that can take over your  intestinal tract after being treated with Antibiotics, Cipro or doxycycline.

Candida albicans is a dimorphic organism. This means that under normal conditions it is a sugar fermenting budding yeast. In acidic pH or when our immune system is weakened, it shifts into its fungal form and becomes pathogenic (disease causing, harmful). This condition is known as candidiasis. Candida overgrowth then sets off a cycle that leads to the further weakening of the body’s defenses, which in turn allows candida to spread even further.

When the protection of the useful microbes and that of the intestinal lining is impaired, proliferation of harmful organisms starts (dysbiosis). Candida transforms itself from a harmless yeast form to a pathogenic fungal form, a condition called candidiasis. Antibiotics contribute to this state twofold. They kill or suppress many of the useful bacteria in the intestines (together with the bacteria they were supposed to kill elsewhere in the body) and also serve as growth promoting factors for candida.

Dangers of uncontrolled candida growth
When Candida growth becomes uncontrolled the following happens: First, fungal metabolites and/or toxins interfere with the functioning of nutrient-uptake and their transfer into the bloodstream. Then the fungus grows long stringy structures (rhizoids) that can penetrate the upper cell layer of the intestinal wall causing symptoms very similar to those of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
Over time, the rhizoids can penetrate the gut wall and make it inflamed and porous causing Leaky Gut Syndrome. The damage to the gut from candida comes both from impaired biochemical processes in cells of the intestinal lining and the physical damage caused by the spread of the rhizoids. In the next step the rhizoids break down the barrier between the intestine and the circulatory system in which case candida can enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body (Systemic candida). Candida can invade virtually any organ or part of the body where the defenses (physical and immunological) are weakened.

Leaky Gut Syndrome is thought to be the underlying cause of bowel disorders and very likely the stage of candidiasis that contributes substantially to food intolerances, environmental sensitivities, allergies and asthma. Source     http://www.ninazu.com/whatis.html

 

Candidiasis Symptoms in Men
Candida yeast infection in men can be regarded to be asymptomatic, as it rarely cause physical signs, when compared with female yeast infection. But when symptoms do occur, they include irritation and inflammation of the area in the head of the penis, which may be accompanied by soreness and itchiness. Reddening of genitals and small blisters, may also occur in the same area. White discharge, lesions, and burning sensation are some other symptoms of genital candidiasis in men which may also be the other male yeast infection symptoms.

Candidiasis can affect areas of the body far removed from candida colonizations in the gastro intestinal tract and vagina. It’s symptoms cover a broad spectrum and the condition can cause a number of diseases ranging from allergies, vaginitis, and thrush ( that is a whitish fungus in the mouth or vagina ), to an invasion of the genital-urinary tract, eyes, liver, heart, or central nervous system. At it’s most destructive, candidiasis is involved in autoimmune diseases such as; Addison’s disease and Aids. Other symptoms of candidiasis, according to Dr Braley, include digestive problems such as bloating, cramping, gas and diarrhea, respiratory problems, coughing, wheezing, earaches, central nervous system imbalances, generalized fatigue, and loss of libido.

Symptoms of Candidiasis

There is a wide array of candidiasis symptoms depending on individual age, sex, environmental exposures, and immune systems. These include, but are not limited to:

Chronic fatigue, especially after eating
Depression
Gastro Intestinal problems such as: bloating, gas, intestinal cramps, chronic diarrhea, constipation, or heartburn
Rectal itching
Allergies ( including both food and airborn )
Severe pre-menstrual syndrome
Impotence
Memory loss, severe mood swings, and feeling mentally ” disturbed “.
Recurrent fungal infections such as ” jock itch “, athelete’s foot, or ringworm
Extreme sensitivity to chemicals, perfumes, smoke, or other odors
Recurrent vaginal or urinary infections
Prostatitis
A feeling of being light headed or drunk after minimal wine, beer, or certain foods
These symptoms worsen in moldy places such as basements or in damp climates, and after eating or drinking yeast or foods containing sugar.

Causes of Candidiasis

Since many of it’s symptoms are shared with other conditions, candidiasis must be diagnosed by examining predisposing factors in a thoughrough personal medical history. Leon Chaitow, N.D., D.O., of London England, decribes the likely candidate for candida overgrowth as someone whose medical history includes:
Steroid hormone medication such as cortisone, or corticosteroids, often prescribed for skin conditions such as rashes, eczema, or psoriasis; prolonged or repeated use of antibiotics which are frequently given for urinary and ear infections, sinusitis, bronchitis, and other infections; ulcer medications such as “Tagamet” and “Zantac” or oral contraceptives. Certain illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, and aids can also increase susceptibility to candida overgrowth.

WOMEN

Many women get vaginal candidiasis, which causes a thick white discharge accompanied with itching and burning sensation. The infection can also develop in the mouth in the form of white ulcers on the tongue, gums and insides of the cheek.

Both men and women are susceptible to candidiasis. Breastfeeding mothers can pass on the infection to babies through breast milk.It is very rare for the infection to pass through sexual contact.

 

As Leyardia Black, ND, of Lopez Island, Washington, points out, ” Candidiasis is basically a twentieth century disease, a disease resulting from medical developments like antibiotics, birth control pills, and estrogen replacement therapy. It can be triggered at a very young age, when children are first being treated with antibiotics.” DR. Chaitow agrees, ” Fully thirty five percent of women using birth control pills have associated causes of acute vaginal candidiasis, and there are undoubtedly many others who have less pronouced evidence of yeast overgrowth as immune competence is gradually compromised by the hormonal onslaught.”

Murray Susser, MD, of Santa Monica, California, points out that since yeast infections enter the body easily through the vagina, and yeast festers in estrogen, women of child-bearing age are more vulnerable to candidiasis. Also, women who have been pregnant are susceptible, since hormonal changes encourage candida overgrowth. When men develop candidiasis, antibiotics, high sugar intake, or immune suppression from illness, toxins, and stress, are usually the root cause.

Frequently, candidiasis is caused by a combination of factors. As Dr.Chaitow explains, ” All too often more than one influence is operating. Over a few years, a patient may have had several series of antibiotics for a variety of conditions while using steroids as well, perhaps in the form of the contraceptive pill. If the patient, most commonly a young woman, also happens to be living on a diet which is rich in sugars, then the candida is very likely to have spread beyond it’s usual borders into new territory.”

Taking antibiotics or steroids for a long period of time or having a weakened immune system can lead to candidiasis. Even those suffering from diabetes or having iron deficiency are prone to this infection.

 

As Dr. Chaitow points out, when the immune system is completely suppressed, as in Aids, yeast proliferates freely and colonizes the body and blood stream, leading to septicemia (blood poisoning). In less drastic but more prevalent cases, the immune system is temporarily suppressed and T-helper cells (lymphocytes which pass into the blood stream to help fight infection) are destroyed. Such immune suppression can be due to any number of factors, such as poor diet including ingestion of pesticides and preservatives, alcohol use, chemotherapy, radiation, exposure to enviromental toxins, antibiotics which injure or destroy the T-cells, and stress. Consequently, conditions are created for opportunistic infections and yeast to grow.

Parasites Fungi? Not Me!

Antibiotics

According to Dr. Sausser, antibiotics may be the single greatest cause of candidiasis, because antibiotic treatment for infections is non desriminatory, killing the “good ” intestinal chemistry-balancing bacteria, as well as the ” bad ” infection-causing bacteria. Both acidophilus and bifidobacteria produce natural antifungal substances as well as antibacterial materials as part of their control mechanism over yeast. One of the activities of the good bacteria is the manufacture of a B vitamin, biotin, which exerts control over yeast. When biotin is lacking, as a result of damage by antibiotics to acidophilus, bifidobacteria, and the microflora ecology, yeast has a chance to change from it’s simple yeast form into a different organism, an encroaching mycelial ( vegetative ) fungus.

Antibiotics can cause the altered inbalanced intestinal environment that candida requires to change into it’s mycelial form. Dr. Chaitow explains, ” Candida puts down minute rootlets which penetrate the tissues on which the yeast is growing. When this happens to be the inner wall of the intestines, it breaks down the barrier which exists between the closed world of the bowel and the body. Toxic debris, yeast waste products, and partially digested proteins are allowed into the blood stream, resulting in allergic and toxic reations.”

Healthy bifidobacteria and acidophilus intestinal colonies can usually withstand one or two short episodes of antibiotics without serious harm. If, however, use of antibiotics is frequent or prolonged as with a course for acne treatment or an infection, then the spread of candida becomes inevitable. ” A vicious cycle may develop as a result, antibiotics alter the balance of intestinal flora and suppress the immune system. An individual with suppressed immune function is much more susceptible, not only to candidiasis but to bacterial infections, which are then treated with antibiotics, which, in turn, increase the growth of candida and so on,” says Dr. Chaitow.

Researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR) Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) have discovered new molecular mechanisms that provide a more detailed understanding of how the normally non-cancerous Dr. Jekyll-like fungus known as Candida albicans transforms into a serious and often life-threatening Mr. Hyde-like form.

  1. albicans can cause serious and potentially life-threatening infections in the mouth, blood and other tissues of people who are undergoing cancer chemotherapy or radiation treatments, or who have developed AIDS or other diseases that damage the immunity of the individual.

In two separate papers published last month in Developmental Cell and in August in the EMBO journal, the team of scientists led by Wang Yue, principal investigator at IMCB, have managed to reveal previously unknown mechanisms which are responsible for causing the infectious phase of C. albicans.

The fungus starts its ‘attack’ on a patient by changing its oval shape into a filamentous form, which has thin, threadlike appendages emerging from the cell body. Wang’s team, who has been studying C. albicans for more than seven years, was responsible for identifying the master “controller” protein called Hgc1 in 20041.

This “controller” functions like a regulator and tells the fungus when to start the transformation from the harmless oval shape to the infectious filamentous form………

Parasites are poisoning You

Treating Candidiasis

Successful treatment of candidiasis first requires the reduction of factors which predispose a patient to candida overgrowth. Secondly, the patient’s immune function must be strengthened. Diet, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, ayurvedic medicine,Bob Becks protocols,Rife and acupuncture are some of the choices alternative physicians use to accomplish these ends.

 

Saliva Test:

Try this simple test to see if you have candida. First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get a clear glass. Fill with water and work up a bit of saliva, then spit it into the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a candida yeast infection, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water. If there are no strings and the saliva is still floating after at least one hour, you are probably candida yeast free.

Diet :
In order to overcome candidiasis, sugar must be avoided in all it’s various forms. These include : sucrose, dextrose, fructose, fruit juices, honey, maple syrup, molasses, milk products (which contains lactose), most fruit (except berries), and potatoes (whose starch converts into sugar). Dr Black says, ” In treating candida, my basic dietary taboos are sweets, alcohol, and refined carbo-hydrates.” Many candidiasis sufferers also have allergies and sensitivity to various foods. Although candida albicans yeast is not synonymous to yeast in foods, such as bread, a cross-reaction between the food yeast and candida frequently occurs. As a result, foods containing or promoting yeast, such as baked goods, alcohol, and vinegar, should be avoided until possible sensivities are clearly diagnosed.

 

According to Dr Susser, sugar in the diet can greatly contribute to candida overgrowth. When sugar is eaten, intestinal fermentation creates a toxin called Acetaldehyde which affects all of the body’s physiological functions, including digestion and hormonal processes. Yeast thrives on sugar in order to grow, therefore, a high-sugar diet is one of the predisposing factors for candidiasis.

 

Dr Black states that some of her patients are very sensitive to yeast and do better staying away from yeast containing foods. To test for such sensitivity, she takes patients off all yeast containing foods for a week. Then she adds such foods back in the diet, one at a time. If the symptoms reappear, then clearly yeast containing foods should be avoided. Similarly, Dr Braly employs a rotation diet when he suspects food allergies. On this regiment, patients avoid certain suspected allergic foods and rotate non allergic food every four or more days. They are then later reintroduced to the suspected foods after three to six months to see if symptoms are provoked. Molds are another aspect of candida sensitivity. These include food molds found in cheeses, grapes, mushrooms, and fermented foods, and also environmental molds found in wet climates, in damp basements, in plants and outdoors. Molds and yeast can also exchange forms. Therefore, the ingestable molds of cheeses and fermented foods should be avoided. Avoiding food yeast and molds does not attack the candida yeast itself, but is an attempt to ease stress on the immune system caused by substances that can trigger allergies.

 

I had my blood analyzed by a dark field microscope after getting rid of the CFIDS virus with 2 months of blood electrification and Magnetic Pulsing. The doctor was practically shocked as to how healthy my blood looked. It shouldn’t of looked good after being sick 16 years but it did. He said he could make a poster of it to show all hiw clients and say “this is what your blood should look like”.

Dr Susser also advises patients to avoid yogurt because of it’s high sugar content, despite it’s high concentration of lacto-bacilli, which suppresses “bad” bacteria and keeps other organisms under control. He finds that freeze-dried acidophilus supplements in capsule form are more effective in combating bacteria than even unsweetened raw yogurt. Candida growth can also be fostered in the diet through consumption of meat, dairy, and poultry products due to the heavy use of antibiotics. Traces of antibiotics given to dairy cows can later show up in milk. Meat eaters should make sure that meat is free of antibiotic contamination. Organic (hormone and antibiotic free) meat and poultry should be consumed whenever possible. For candidiasis patients, sea food (free of mercury toxins) and vegatable protein are preferable since they are not only antibiotic free, but lower in fat. According to Dr Chaitow, both bifido-bacteria and acidophilus should be supplemented during candidiasis treatment to help repopulate the bowel, and for antifungal activity. This “good” bacteria supplementation is called “Pro-biotics”. Dr Chaitow also recommends that other pro-biotic products such as lactobacillus vulgaricus, be used to assist the colonizing activities of bifido-bacteria and acidophilus.

Alcohol

Candidiasis patients should also stay away from all alcohol since it is composed of fermented and refined sugar. It is also more toxic than sugar and feeds yeast. According to Dr Susser, alcohol suppresses the immune system, disturbs the whole adrenal axis, and you can say ampirically that it makes anyone with candida worse.
Some candidiasis sufferers will feel, and appear to be, intoxicated. An unsual symptom of certain people with severe candidiasis is the presence of alcohol in the blood stream even when none has been consumed. First discovered in Japan, and called “drunk disease,” this condition creates strains of candida albicans which turn acetaldehyde (which is the chemical created by sugar and yeast fermentation) into ethanol. This is a process well understood by distillers of homemade brew. These candidiasis patients whose yeast turns sugar into alcohol are chronically drunk. They have developed what is only half-jokingly called “auto-brewery syndrome”.

Old Methods of Diet and Anti-Fungals Don’t Work
According to Dr. Simoncini in Italy, if you use diet and anti-fungals against candida then you cause the candida to burrow deeper into the body away from the intestines in search of simple carbohydrates and away from the anti-fungals. Then the candida infection becomes more invasive and more systemic. Then you can have candida in your liver, kidneys, lungs etc

 

Colloidal silver provides a three-fold attack on the problems of candida. First, the colloidal silver kills off anaerobic bacteria and virii wherever it comes in contact with them. Therefore, the colloidal silver virtually provides a secondary immune system against all types of disease and infections, while treating the candida. Thus much of the problems of candida are treated immediately, before the candida can be cleaned out of the system. Second, colloidal silver is unusually effective in treating the candida infection itself. And third, colloidal silver has a strange and dynamic way of healing injured and damaged tissues fast. Since yeast infections of all kinds usually attack and consume the living tissue, a healing process is badly needed, and colloidal silver has a very unique way of healing these tissues fast.

Externally users continually report that colloidal silver will cure athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, as well as candida infections of the skin very quickly and then heals the damaged tissues.

What does it mean if someone gets better using these devices but still doesn’t feel totally healthy? It means that he/she has gotten rid of the source of the problem but not the results of the problem. The results may be a congested liver, weakened adrenals, mineral imbalances, low thyroid output, lessened acidophilus count in the intestines, weakened cardiovascular system, kidney stones, gallbladder stones, systemic Candida, hard to kill intestinal bacteria and parasites, and countless other nusances.

“This tripulser 9 is great against candida – the most effective tool I’ve used. I’ve been using it daily for 3 weeks now and it has been doing wonders – I am very grateful to you for your efforts. I’ve had candida for my whole life and been fighting it for around 2 years now so I know how hard it is to kill candida. I’ve tried around 30+ remedies and all have worked to a certain extent but your zapper is certainly the most effective. ”   Neil S London

Alternative physicians and biologists such as Dr. Hulda Clark and Dr. Bob Beck have used electric current stimulation to control parasites and candidas. They postulate that, since every species has its own unique vibration rhythm, it should be possible to destroy a parasite without harming the host, by inducing resonance through electric stimulation. This became the underlying principle for constructing the zapper, a device that generates an electric current of appropriate frequency, “recharges” the human organism and helps to control harmful micro-organisms

Hello everyone.
I’m very happy to be back home.
My trip to Brazil was a success. I was able to get diagnosed and treated properly. I also found out I have heartburn/stomach inflammation/gastritis and I think the parasite drugs made it much worse. Luckily I fixed some of this problem and the gastritis discomfort is mild since I’m careful with what I eat.
~
Unfortunately because of the gastritis I had to use another drug called Nexium (esomeprazole)for 8 weeks which gave me some anxiety and depression as a side effect. The depression and anxiety got much worse on the 7 and 8 week. In the 7th week I also started having quite low energy, I was drowsy, and having high pitch ring in my ears/head, digestion was not the greatest I had to go to the bathroom more then once a day which felt similar to my Amoeba/Giardia days :o(.
Luckily after I stopped taking Nexium my bad/dysfunctional depression and anxiety went mostly away :o))) but my energy levels and alertness are not as good as I was a couple of weeks ago in Brazil, the buzzing still happens and the digestion is still not great.
~
I’m not sure if I’m still having side effects from Nexium or if I have some Giardia and Amoeba left to kill. My last Giardia and Amoeba test where negative at Labion lab. Its also possible that I have bacteria overgrowth or yeast infection. I have read that drugs like Nexium can cause that.
I did an endoscopy to see why every time I eat foods with carbs or sugars I get a sour/lemon like taste after eating. Nexium was supposed to take care of this sour taste issue. Nexum helped with heartburn & acid burning throat but it did nothing for the sour taste. H.pylori was not found in the endoscopy test (since I had many false negative test results for parasites, I’m skeptical)
~
All my tests from MetaMetrix and Labion showed Enterococcus feacalis (from Labion) and non pathogenic E.coli. My last Labion test was negative for Giardia and Amoeba but positive for Enterococcus feacalis and non pathogenic E.coli.

WARNINGS

http://healthquestions.medhelp.org/nexium-fda-warning
~
The latest FDA warning for PPI’s (nexium is a PPI) is hypomagnesemia – magnesium deficiency. “FDA notified healthcare professionals and the public that prescription proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs may cause low serum magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia) if taken for prolonged periods of time (in most cases, longer than one year).
~
PPI’s should be taken for up to 14 days, 3 times a year – FDA warning – March 2010. Good reason for this statement. You need stomach acid to absorb essential nutrients and kill off bacteria, fungi and parasites. Low stomach acid leads to fractures, bacterial/fungal infections, parasites, lowered immune system, systematic health decline, gastritis, stomach cancer, heart failure…
~
Neutralizing stomach acid means you ability to absorb nutrients is impaired. Warning in particular for nexium is magnesium deficiency on the FDA website – seen within 3 months but on average about a year after starting. Magnesium deficiency causes so many symptoms including acid reflux ironically. Magnesium is essential for proper heart rhythm. Calcium contracts the muscles, magnesium relaxes the muscle. The most important muscle in the body is the heart.

~
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that the exposure to mercury vapor can greatly increase beyond this number due to personal habits such as grinding of the teeth, chewing gum, and drinking carbonated drinks. This could lead to a fivefold increase in mercury levels after these activities.

This ONE Antioxidant Keeps All Other Antioxidants Performing at Peak Levels
April 10, 2010 By Dr. Mercola, & Ori Hofmekler
~
Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and has even been called “the master antioxidant.” It is a tripeptide found inside every single cell in your body.
~
Antioxidants are crucial in eliminating free radicals from your body. Free radicals are basically very reactive particles that bounce all around the cell damaging everything they touch. Most originate during the process of metabolism but they can also arise from exposure to toxins, irradiation, and toxic metals.
~
Because free radicals are so destructive, cells have a network of defenses designed to neutralize them. This antioxidant network is composed of numerous components that include vitamins, minerals and special chemicals called thiols (glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid).
~
Glutathione is comprised of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine.
~
Glutathione is sometimes confused with glutamine and glutamate due to the similarity in names. Although all three molecules are related, they are different in composition and function. When you are healthy, the three are balanced and do a delicate dance within your body.
~
In a nutshell, this is the difference between the three:
~
Glutamine: Your body’s most abundant amino acid, made in your brain from glutamate; has a major role in various anti-injury processes and muscle repair; a precursor to glutathione.
~
Glutathione (two types, GSH and GSSG): The “master antioxidant”—most powerful antioxidant in your body, present in every cell. Protects cells, and especially important for liver health; breaks down into free glutamate.
~
Glutamate (aka glutamic acid or L-glutamate): Monopeptide amino acid neurotransmitter in your brain—required for synaptic activity. You don’t want too much of it—it’s an excitotoxin. (See also monosodium glutamate, or MSG)
