  • This Candida forum is a complete mess by North  21d   163  Candida

  • isocort is not thyroid! it is adrenal! by North  21d   180  Adrenal Fatigue  C  
    ISOCORT IS NOT THYROID! IT IS AN ADRENAL HORMONE! Shees people, get your facts straight! Isocort has cortisol, which your body makes with your adrenal glands. Not the thyroid glands.   [End]

  • Okra pepsin did not work for me by North  56d   243  Candida  C  
    Okra pepsin did not work for me, my constipation problem was the same on it. And I’m not sensitive to lactose, I can leave lactose out of my diet and not get any change, good or bad. ... ... Some other things that can cause the constipation (also called slow motility) in candida people is an incorrect ratio of other bacteria in the gut. Candida itself often causes diarrhea, but if people also have too much of certain kinds of bacteria (not candida) in addition to their candida problem, they may get constipation in that way. ... ... Glad you find it helpful for you though.   [End]
  • Re: Neon pee by North  59d   151  Candida  
    I’ve always been told it’s just excess of the one or two of the B vitamins that are yellow in color. Look at the capsule/tablet, it is yellow inside. ... ... On a separate subject, whether or not the pee becomes yellow, b vitamins can be used by yeast/candida living in your body. So, taking b vitamins does unfortunately help the candida somewhat to thrive. ... ... My answer has been to use B vitamins topically (mix with drops of water and rub onto skin). I read a study somewhere showing that they do get into the blood this way. This bypasses the digestive system.   [End]

  • Topical vitamins and minerals by North  64d   354  Candida  C  
    I suppose if the candida is systemic, then yes the vits/mins in your blood would also feed the candida...but we need some ourselves too. I figure this topical method is better than putting these particular vitamins and minerals into the gut, where the worse problems are with candida. A compromise, I guess it is. ... ... Sublingual is supposed to be faster than applying these vitamins to the skin, but I have no patience for leaving things sitting in my mouth for long.

One more thing, I experiment with using vitamins and minerals on my skin (”topically”) and am reading that some of them absorb into the blood that way, thus avoiding feeding the candida in our guts.

  • Wired, please use the correct terms, otherwise confuses people by North  82d   538  Adrenal Fatigue  
    Wired, please use the correct terms, otherwise it can confuse people - I think the word you meant was ”agonists” not ”antagonists”. Agonists of GABA will artificially raise GABA. Antagonists would lower GABA, and the items you mentioned up there seem to raise GABA, they don’t (that I know) lower GABA. ... ... Your point is great, I just think that the point gets a little lost if some readers don’t realize the word meant there.   [End]
