FWIW: When I am dealing with yeast die-off I take plenty of molybdenum. I have taken as much as 1000mcg per day with good result. I take 500-750 every day because I have MCS with a severe sensitivity to aldehydes.
Mo is a cofactor in the production of an enzyme necessary for the breakdown of aldehydes, which are plentiful in our environment with sources too numerous to list. Yeast and fungal die-off release aldehydes as well. I don't know how much you are taking, but possibly you can increase your dose.
Yes, Cutler recommended avoidance of chlorella. It can be a source of heavy metals and make heavy metal toxicity worse for other reasons as well. Prior to discovering Cutler, it is something I tried with a very bad result.
Antioxidants I use: A-20,000iu, E-800iu, Selenium-200mcg (also helps to bind some mercury to prevent some of the damage Hg does), milk thistle-500-750mg, CoQ, Resveratrol (from j. knot), C-6GM, Tocotrienols.
Can you do an Epsom Salt foot soak? I don't know where you live, but is it warm enough to go sit outside and do a foot soak? I never did well with the baths, but the foot soaks worked great both indoors and outside sitting in a lawn chair.
I started treatment with Fluconazole about 6 weeks ago. Also started nigella sativa oil and then seeds in the weeks after starting Fluconazole.
My cognitive functioning has gotten progressively worse in the last few weeks. When my doc Rx Fluconazole, she also wanted me to take chlorella. I did take a small amount - 3 tablets 2x day. As my cognitive function got worse, I got worried that the chlorella was the cause (think Cutler). All amalgams have been out over a year now.
Anyway, I stopped chlorella. Cognitive seemed to improve a little for about a week and then got worse again, so maybe it wasn’t the chlorella.
Georgia Hunter stated this to me on another post:
“The cognitive decline is from a decrease in detox pathways. Those yeast bind metals that are released when they die and you need more antioxidants to bind the free radicals. You need to decrease oxidative stress. I am not the best person to tell you how to do that but some on this forum are pretty good at it.”
Help. I need my brain.
For what it’s worth, I have also been taking 3 supplements with quercetin in them, B vitamins, selenium, Viit E, molybdenum, buffered Vit C (3g 2x day), zinc, copper. I already have been on lipo glutathione, NAC, fish oil, milk thistle daily long term. I added SPM Active when the MCAS got bad but backed off some in the last week b/c it’s super expensive. It’s much more potent than fish oil as an anti-inflammatory.
Still can’t do epsom salt baths b/c of the moldy house situation. No sauna.
Binders include activated charcoal and Zeobind.
