Your Questions Answered: Kid’s Hair Had Heavy Metals, Fluconazole Spiking My Blood Sugar & Not Losing Weight With CanXida

Question: My (3.5 years) sons hair analysis came back high in lead 10ug/g, arsenic .27, mercury 1.2, aluminium 13. Any advise would be really appreciated. We started him on a baby safe version of edta, glutathione/ vit c patches. I bought dmsa and ALA but hard to get him to take it. Hes also on trs.

Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, aluminium and cadmium are becoming more prevalent in our environment and causing greater exposure. Research has related heavy metal toxicity to numerous health issues such as allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue, irritable bowl syndrome, sleep disorders, dysbiosis, leaky gut syndrome, and autoimmune disease. The best prescription chelating agents available are DMSA, DMPS and EDTA. Over the counter treatments include zeolites. Zeolites attract and bind to toxic metals to be then excreted from the body. Zeolite is less potent than chemical agents such as EDTA, DMSA and DMPS however it is safe to use and cheap. Each patient should be matched to the right protocol so it is a very individual treatment plan. More aggressive protocols can cause great discomfort to sensitive patients. I recommend working with a naturopath or health care professional to get the best treatment plan for your son. A very effective treatment is DMSA or DMPS alone, followed by adding ALA. Some other good supplements include zinc B complex, magnesium, molybdenum and epson salt baths. Epsom salt baths can also help with sweating and detoxing from the skin (like a sauna). Another good natural alternative is chlorella. Chlorella is a microalgae that binds to most heavy metals. It enhances mobilization of toxic metals and enhances biliary-intestinal excretion (especially mercury). Cilantro is also a common natural chelator. Soluble fiber rich foods like flax, oats, bran and chia also help bind to heavy metals in the GI tract. Focus on hydration and limiting exposure to heavy metals from the environment. Finally consider supporting your liver which is the main detox organ by supplementing with a good multivitamin like Rebuild.

Question: Fluconazole 150 mg Capsule spike up normal blood sugar levels?

There is no evidence that Fluconazole can raise blood sugar levels and it is safe to use in diabetic patients with fungal infections. However the oral suspension form of fluconazole contains sucrose which can raise blood sugar levels. Diabetic patients who are on hypoglycemic drugs (which lower blood sugar) need to be careful when taking Keto or Fluconazole which can lower blood sugar. People with hyperglycemia or diabetes can have a hard time getting rid of yeats overgrowth like Candida which becomes resistant to antifungals more easily. In diabetics antifungal resistance is a common problem since Candida thrives in high sugar environments. Additionally a compromised immune system coupled with high sugar makes it easier for biofilm formation. Biofilms are one of the main reasons why a Candida overgrowth is so hard to beat. Using antifungal drugs alone is often not enough to beat a Candida biofilm. A good Candida protocol includes antifungals, probiotics, and a low-sugar diet. Systemic enzymes have been shown to break down Candida biofilms. Adding these systemic enzymes to your treatment can make your probiotics and antifungal therapies much more effective.

Question: I have been taking CanXida’s products for a long time. Yes, they do make me feel better. I do not drink alcohol, nor eat any sugar, no corn, only occasional bread is sour dough, tiny amt wheat (pasta), rare dairy. I add a tiny amount of pure stevia to my 2 c. tea. I seem to be very sensitive to all carbs. I still have itching, and have not lost very much weight.Suggestions?

Candida can be difficult to treat because dealing with yeast overgrowth requires a comprehensive natural treatment protocol. Diet is the first step to focus on reducing symptoms caused by the bacterial overgrowth by reducing the main food source that they feed on. Certain carbs are going to cause symptoms including starches, grains, beans, sugar, dairy, and some fruit.
