- Taking deer antler velvet; definite effect, but what does it do?? by CGally81
Okay, I have candida overgrowth and mercury toxicity, though my symptoms have been reduced significantly and are on the low end of things. Now I just want to get rid of my gut and reduce my hunger. I tried iodine. But anyway, moving on...
I started taking deer antler velvet (2mg) about 6 days ago, and... wow. Major candida die off, despite the fact that even taking bacillus coagulans no longer produces major die off for me. But also, I'm experiencing symptoms that make me think it's moving mercury around.
I have the metallic taste in my mouth, mild itchiness, candida die off (which is many symptoms), random stuff like randomly feeling that my knees are heavy, then suddenly they're not. Miscellaneous stuff that's similar to when I was taking a product that shifts mercury around.
I'm taking chelating stuff also (vitamin C, selenium, etc).
Anyway, what is IN deer antler velvet that could be doing this? I find so very little information on it that it's not even funny. I started taking it to try to lose weight, and instead my body's going insane like it does whenever I do something with mercury. Does anyone know much about this? And what on earth are the ingredients in deer antler velvet? I can't find any site that lists them.

Okay, after searching far and wide, I found a site that finally gave me some straight answers as to what exactly is in deer antler velvet: http://www.deerantlervelvet.net/articles/whats_in_deer_antler_velvet.cfm
I'll copy/paste the ingredients.
Growth Hormones and Growth Factors - Insulin-like growth factors IGF-1 and IGF-2
Minerals - Calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sulphur, sodium, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and cobalt
Amino Acids (including all 8 essential)
Linolenic Acid (essential fatty acid)
Okay, so any of that stuff help with chelation? "All 8 essential amino acids" sounds like it might include Lysine. Also in there is sulphur. Both of those are known to help with chelation, but not necessarily cause the body to excrete more mercury. Plus there's seleinum and magnesium, and glucasomine is also said to help.
What else could be in deer antler velvet? My body is definitely showing signs of moving mercury around, believe me, as I know my mercury symptoms. But is anything in there able to actually pull mercury from the cells so it can be chelated? How much do you think this might be helping with mercury?
I realize I'm treading in unknown territory here. Might as well keep it up and see what happens.
