    Auto brewery syndrome HELP

    Came back to the forum to read some of the advise and saw your message. originally a doctor at the practice I am at gave me anti fungals, some just didnt work, but finally one did. unfortunately that doctor left and the ones left will not recognise the illness nor will they treat it. I have had a very stressful year which has meant my fungal levels have risen. theres an app called carbs and cals that can help with low carb foods. My treatment I am following at the ment is to eat two cloves of garlic a day, taste like crap but really helps, one before breakfast and one before dinner. The other thing is Caprylic acid, I have been taking that at 1200mg which certainly seems to be working. Reading the info on here it appears I need to up the dose to 3600. so will start by doubling tomorrow. Hope your husband has improved since your post

    Ardyth, thank you so much for sharing your story and that of your daughter here. You were well ahead of your time with your research into the connection between yeast/fungal issues and autism and deserve immense credit for that. Today, I would like to think at least, that this is a widely accepted theory - at least among many parents of autistic children, their doctors, and researchers in the field. We like success stories here at The Environmental Illness Resource (I personally recovered from multiple chemical sensitivity) so it is lovely to learn your daughter is now nearly autism-free and living her life as such. I don't think anyone here would argue with your ammendment of your theory to include environmental factors. When I started this site I was somewhat naive in limiting it to a specific group of illnesses as it is now clear that almost every chronic illness, at least those labelled "unexplained", have a component of environmental toxicity somewhere along the line. Once again, thank you sincerely for sharing and we all wish both you and your daughter a long and healthy future!

    Study reveals new herbal antifungals effective against Candida

    No problem, I hope you've found something of use during your reading here at EiR? I've seen some good studies that found bayberry extracts to be a good anti-fungal so drinking bayberry bark tea certainly seems like a good thing to include in your daily regime. Sticking to a low carb diet tends to get easier as you go along in my experience. I've been doing it for so long I find I don't crave sugary or starchy foods any longer and am actually put off by them! Diet is key to minimise fermentation and related symptoms/damage while you tackle gut dysbiosis directly so I hope you find a way to make it work for you. I look forward to reading about some of the other things that have helped you and I'm sure other members and visitors to the site will appreciate you sharing also!

    No problem Steven. Dr. Myhill does have a very comprehensive site so well worth reading through the sections that might apply to you. She does tend to be extremely busy though and often has to limit taking on new patients. However, I believe you can still order tests and have her interpret the results without having a consultation after jumping through a few hoops re: providing medical history and current diagnoses etc. One of the most knowledgeable environmental illness / invisible illness doctors in the UK if you can get to see her in person or speak over the phone without doubt. All the best.

    Anyone tried Iodine supplements

    Certainly true marcus, there is a large amount of research showing the oils in the Origanum vulgare variety of oregano are potent antifungals. I've reported on some of these studies in the Information > News > Candida & Gut Dysbiosis section of the site. Peppermint oil is another essential oil that is highly effective at killing fungi/yeast.

    Can an anti-fungal diet "cure" Candida or just reduce symptoms?

    Very interesting post Pat, particularly the mention of Candida using lipids as the primary nutrient rather than carbohydrates. If this is the case it would have to be specific to a perculiar form of Candida that has morphed from a yeast to another form...perhaps the well known 'hyphael' form or perhaps something new. The fact is that Candida as a yeast does subsist primarily by fermenting carbohydrates. My own experience is similar to the stories you mention of people having to live on meat and very low carbohydrate vegetables...otherwise I experience the very unique symptoms of being poisoned by ethanol and acetaldehyde. Lab work backs this up in terms of both blood levels and induced liver enzymes (keeping in mind I am tee total). Do you happen to have a link to the post about Candida and fats? I'd really like to read it. Thanks! I feel you may be correct about pathogens and symbiotic microorganisms turned pathogens (e.g. Candida) that have sought refuge in the lymph system acting as a reservoir that simply reinfects areas such as the gut that have been specifically treated with antimicrobials. I would agree to maintaining oneself on whatever program seems to reduce symptoms the most but also suggest therapies that improve lymph drainage (particularly the Perrin Technique) and modulate immune function e.g. transfer factor, low-dose naltrexone (LDN), various herbs and medications. Obviously removing factors from diet and lifestyle that impair immunity is also vital e.g. sugar, psychological stress. It's my feeling that new digestive enzyme supplements that aim to digest biofilms may help bring pathogens back into symbiosis with the human body when combined with appropriate antimicrobials and the other steps mentioned above. Breaking down the biofilms and hitting things quickly with antimicrobials may give pathogens less time to morph and adapt. Or perhaps I am being too optimistic...

    Candida Vaccine: A Possible New Treatment Approach?

    Hi Maff, You have opened yet another of one of the most important topics regarding MCS and the resolution of disease. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the yeast of bread and beer. There is another beer yeast but it is the cold-filtered kind and supposedly has not been modified too much. I replied on a post regarding the use of Inulin and stated that the substances for bacteriophages to replicate without the use of bacteria include: hydrolyzed milk protein (casein); B-vitamins; and YEAST EXTRACT. The reason this is significant is that in the 1980s about the time that The Yeast Connection was about to come out, they were vaccinating gay men in trials with an experimental Hepatitis B vaccine that was developed from GMO yeast that produced the Hepatitis B Surface Antigen. HBSAg is a self-assembling molecule. This should raise the flags for those with Morgellons. Bread and Beer yeast is in nearly every prepared food. Make a list of labels that DON'T have Yeast Extract in them because the list will be shorter. This organism has been modified for the past 30 years. Of course S. cerevisiae is not Candida albicans but does it matter? Microbes exchange genes like teenage girls trade clothes. That is just in Nature. What no one is talking about is what is being purposely done in the lab. This is why we can't get a foothold against organisms that seem to mutate as freely as the Borg change their shield frequencies. All this to get to the point: The idea of a vaccine for candida is obscene in the extreme! Vaccines were the root cause of the candida pathogenesis and now they want to inflict another vaccine? Insanity. Candida has morphed from a ubiquitous, innocuous dimorphic fungus to a flesh-eating monster in about a generation. Sure, mycophages can provoke pathogenicity and toxigenicity in fungus just as bacteriophages do in bacteria, but we are talking about something that is unprecedented in what I have studied as the history of the Natural world. Given what is being promoted out of Japan as therapy for intractable yeast infections it appears that there are molecular switches that were engineered into these lab-created monsters so we are looking into finding out how to reverse the damage with simple means.
