Your Questions Answered: Bismuth Subnitrate Proof, ION Gut Health & Antifungals For Burning Tongue

Question:I’m on my second month of CanXida Remove and CanXida Restore to treat horrible eczema I’ve got on my hands and arms, and am experiencing tremendous progress, so thank you for all of your contributions to the study and treatment of yeast/fungus infections. Here’s my question: I visited a naturopath and she gave me (well, I bought from her) 30 capsules of Bismuth Subnitrate (200 mg) combined with R-ALA (100 mg) and DMSA (100 mg). The capsules were made by Yorkdowns Chemists in Toronto, and are only available for purchase by naturopaths. The naturopath I visited said that these capsules were formulated to serve as “”biofilm busters,”” meaning that they would break down the biofilms that yeast/fungi create to protect themselves from the body’s immune system. I took one capsule per day for 30 days. If they worked at all, I didn’t notice it. By contrast, I noticed that CanXida Remove (which I had been taking for about one month prior to visiting this particular naturopath, and before taking the “”biofilm buster”” capsules she gave me) began working within a day. So, my question: Has Bismuth Subnitrate/R-ALA/DMSA been proven to break down yeast/fungus biofilms? Should I buy more of these capsules? Looking forward to your response.

Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that have attached themselves to a moist surface and secrete a gelatinous substance that protects them from anti-infective therapies, like antibiotics. Biofilms can form almost anywhere that water is present including the digestive tract, the bloodstream and on teeth. Biofilms can be classified as phase 1 and phase 2. Phase 1 biofilms are in the earlier stages of development and can be treated with biofilm busters derived from natural herbs such as oregano, thyme, garlic, olive, berberine, which are found in CanXIda Remove. In a healthy host, these immature biofilms are kept in a weakened state by agents found in healthy diets including many herbs, spices, enzymes and probiotics. Phase 2 biofilms are much stronger and resistant to therapy. They develop after a longer period after the host has become depleted due to poor immunity. They are implicated in more difficult to treat pathologies such as chronic sinusitis, or resistant urinary tract infections.

Effective disruptors for phase 2 biofilms include a bismuth-thiol complex that is a complex of bismuth subnitrate, ALA and DMPS. Note that this complex is not the same as the sum of their parts; the bismuth and the thiol complex together form a “super-molecule” that is critical for its activity. The combination of bismuth and thiol (preferably dithiol) produces a potent, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent with diverse properties, depending on the thiol employed. The simplest and most potent BT is bismuth ethanedithiol (BisEDT). A practitioner will know that the biofilm is opening because of immune aggravation (e.g. flu-like symptoms) as the patient’s immune system is “experiencing” the infectious material that was previously hidden from it.

Question: What do you think about ION Gut Health?

Dr. Bush’s Restore products have been re-branded as the ION line of products. The active ingredient in the ION products is Terrahydrite. The trademark description for Terrahydrite notes that it’s soil derived. On his website, Dr. Bush lists a number of publications including an experiment involving Terrahydrite effect on rat and human cells that were grown in a lab. The article describes ION as “fossilized soil (lignite)” extracts along with purified water and a proprietary blend of various minerals (sodium, potassium, etc.). It specifically labels the lignite extract as Terrahydrite, and credits the “carbon-based redox molecules” in Terrahydrite as the active ingredient. Lignite is a type of coal (fossilized soil) with a carbon content between 25 and 70%. So Terrahydrite is basically carbon powder dissolved in water.

In fact, “terra” is the Latin word for dirt and soil, and “hydrate” the chemical term for a substance dissolved in water. So Terrahydrite is likely just that “soil in water.” In fact, if you check out the list of trademarks registered to Biomic Sciences, LLC, you’ll see that Dr. Bush has also trademarked “Magic Dirt Water.” It’s possible that there’s something to it, since activated charcoal tablets are sometimes used as a treatment for poisoning and there is anecdotal evidence that it treats stomach gas. His study on lab cells is intriguing, but most likely Dr. Bush is overhyping his results, and he is a bit deceptive in how he markets the product. I personally would not reccomend to purchase any Terrahydrite products because they don;t have enough scientific evidence to back the claims stated in the website. Instead you can find ample evidence in researched probitoc strains like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium foun in CanXida Restore and herbal antimicrobial compounds such as berebrine and black walnut found in Remove.

Question: I have a burning tongue. I have been taking antifungals, changed my diet for 2 months. I lost 10 pounds, don’t have any gas or bloating, my aches all over my body are gone and I have increased energy. But my tongue is burning all the time. Have you heard of burning mouth syndrome? My tongue is coated white which tells me it’s yeast… I don’t want to take prescribed medication so I ordered your remove and am hoping it will help. Any advice about this terrible Burning tongue would be so appreciated!

Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is a complex oral condition that produces a burning, tingling, or scalding feeling in the mouth. The most common locations of pain are the tip of the tongue and the roof of the mouth. In most cases, the burning pain comes on suddenly and is not triggered by an apparent cause. Primary BMS is associated with the central nervous system’s sensory nerves. Secondary BMS is usually caused by an underlying medical condition, the most common cause being oral trush followed by certain medications. Oral candidiasis, or thrush, is a common problem caused by Candida albicans. Oral thrush is a yeast infection resulting from an overgrowth of Candida that lives in the mucous membranes of the mouth. The most common sign of thrush is white patches that develop on the tongue, cheeks, or lips. You may also experience soreness, redness or a burning sensation.

There are some tips you can do to manage oral candidiasis. Having proper oral hygiene is crucial. Brush your teeth regularly after every meal and change toothbrush frequently. Avoid mouthwash containing alcohol, instead make an antifungal mouthwash from essential oils.Try adding 2-3 drops of peppermint/ spearmint/ tea tree or neem essential oil to water. Swish the mixture in your mouth and always spit it out. Oil pulling is also another option. Use coconut/ olive oil wich have strong antifungal properties. If you have oral trush, you most likely have intestinal candidiasis as well. Cutting out sugary foods can help to prevent Candida outbreaks, both in your mouth and elsewhere. Probiotics in CanXida Restore can help to rebalance the bacteria in your gut and mouth, and support your immune system. You might need to take antimicrobial therapy like CanXida Remove to help get rid of biofilms that also establish in the mouth.
