The metals and candida connectino is definitely on my mind since I tested almost off the charts for two environmental metals, mercury and thallium. I have certainly wondered if canidida is the real source of my immune and allergy problems for almost a decade, and I may have my proof that candida is only a symptom of the poison. HOwever, the diagnosis of toxicity to 12 environmental metals is also very strong argument for the candida treatments since the anti-inflammatory foods diet is the only thing that helped me, and conventional doctors only made me worse with their ignorance. Candida may not be the root cause, but there has got to be more medical attention paid to why candida diets work. The good news is that while the candida diet remains a joke among physiciancs, the anti-inflammatory diet used for autism, Arthritis and heart patients is gaining ground. Maybe that's the entry point for true medical breakthroughs.
