In reference to taking a course of Candidiasis treatment and a Liver cleanse I want to remind folks of the following:
(1)The Herxheimer Reaction "Feeling worse before feeling better
The Herxheimer Reaction is a short-term (from days to a few weeks) detoxification reaction in the body. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms.
This is a normal — and even healthy — reaction that indicates that parasites, fungus, viruses, bacteria or other pathogens are being effectively killed off. The biggest problem with the Herxheimer reaction is that people stop taking the supplement or medication that is causing the reaction, and thus discontinue the very treatment that is helping to make them better. Although the experience may not make you feel particularly good, the Herxheimer Reaction is actually a sign that healing is taking place."
Yoga calls a similar process a healing crisis:
(2)Healing Crisis – Step by Step
>Pain in different places all over the body.
The healing crisis can last from three hours to three days; involving excruciating pain, sweats, fever, diarrhea, vomiting. This is nature’s way of cleaning house. On a large scale, a hurricane can also be called a healing crisis for nature itself. Don’t be alarmed by what Mother Nature does to rescue and eliminate the body’s problems. The body gets sick in an attempt to get well! The crisis may take many different forms such as diarrhea, flu, itching, fever, menstrual pain, coughing, frequent urination, vomiting, extreme exhaustion, and symptoms of past ailments, elimination though ears, eyes, menstrual discharge, boils, discharge of pus, poison, blood etc."
And While that sounds extreme; an accumulation of poison over a period of decades is no less extreme, or catastrophic.
"Iodine deficiency is now accepted as the most common cause of preventable brain damage in the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) affect 740 million people throughout the world, and nearly 50 million people suffer from some degree of IDD-related brain damage. The spectrum of IDD includes mental retardation, hypothyroidism, goiter, and varying degrees of other growth and developmental abnormalities
Iodine can be used as an antimicrobial agent for the emergency purification of water. Tablets and solutions are commercially available. Effects generally occur within 15 minutes. One study showed that oral iodized oil significantly improved performance on cognitive tests in 10-12 year-old school children." The site goes on to extol the many properties of Iodine and is really worth checking out; there is so much information on Iodine I can't just repeat it all here.
Why do I bring this up now? Because Iodine is a wonderful antibiotic and possibly also has anti-inflammatory effects and a really good supplement and great to take while undergoing a thorough cleanse. You know how the doctors want to give you an antibiotic to take care of secondary infection? You say, "But, Doc, secondary infection??? I'm dying from a snake bite, why are you worried about secondary infection?"**
Doc: "So I can charge you an office visit fee and create more mutant bacteria..."
No, It's because while healing the immune system really doesn't need any added problems in terms of infection, etc. The very best natural antibiotics are src='https://www.fusionquest.com/cgi-bin/main/hotlinks.cgi?aflt=Katybr&client=heallix'>silver colloidal~Heallix and

Here are a couple of very good videos to watch and learn from: Jerry Brunetti and his experience with terminal cancer.

I got these from a reader, the evidence contained in the first two is striking and compelling, fascinating and exciting. The third is for those who can afford to spend a month on a reversing Diabetes ranch in New Mexico.
Here is some food for thought in the I NEED THAT DEPARTMENT....
**This actually happened to me, I had a goat that was snake bit and the vet tried to sell me an antibiotic for it.
I will be adding the Sea Kelp and some Colloidal silver to my regimen to help me getting healthy, As soon as the Liver cleanse arrives. In the meantime I'll also be taking these and a few others I haven't mentioned because I'm seeing for myself if they are as efficacious as the hype says.
