One of the most common struggles in the detox process is dealing with yeast overgrowth. It is common even in children who have not begun detox because mercury suppresses immune function, so the body can't control yeast.
Many parents are familiar with it and may think they need to stop detox until the yeast is gone, but it delays the detox process that corrects immune function. Others are concerned about yeast flare-ups during detox and may be apprehensive to begin, which is understandable, but fungal overgrowth is common in mercury poisoning. The key isn't to avoid detox but instead to learn how to manage yeast overgrowth so you can detox.
It does get better with lots of detoxes, but it takes time. In the meantime, managing goes a long way so you can continue to detox. Yeast will become much easier to control with less anti-fungal, and eventually, it will go away entirely.
Many detox protocols claim to remove metals, but most of what we have seen does not remove mercury safely. Some protocols don't remove it at all, or at least not from the brain where it causes most of the problems. Others do not prevent mercury from going back into the brain.
Any protocol that suggests randomly taking chelators causes metals to settle in the brain. It is called redistribution and makes people get sicker, sometimes permanently. Andy Cutler discussed this in his books, and he had seen cases of permanent regressions. We mention this in our books as well. One example of this is the use of high-dose IV chelation. It was so common the nickname "DMPS backfire" led to a website "DMPS backfire" cataloging the reports, but it can happen with any chelator used infrequently. You can read real people's experiences of similar problems with high dose or infrequent protocols on this site.
Other protocols don't use things that can bind metals. It takes a sulfur-thiol molecule to grab onto metals and escorts them out of the body. In addition to that, most protocols don't use anything that crosses the blood-brain barrier. If you don't get a chelator into the brain, the mercury won't come out of it. None of them are using half-life to maintain steady levels of chelators if they use chelators at all.
In addition to respecting the half-life of chelators to maintain a steady level, this protocol also uses support supplements to nourish the body, protect against oxidative stress and make detox more comfortable.
The point of this protocol is to detox without the risk of making everything worse.
