I realize the doc's are doing the best they can, but they aren't
trained how to figure this stuff out, and they ARE trained to ignore
reports by patients in favor of what other doc's tell them.
In fact, the people who chelate while doing what they can to keep a
lid on the yeast problem report substantial overall progress as a
rule, the people who are always holding back on chelation report
modest progress at best.
Even the doc's agree, the younger you chelate your kid, the better
the eventual outcome. But then they keep putting it off in favor of
"gut bug" treatment.
Also please note that I live in a state where there are "naturopathic"
physicians. The MD's use cycles of Rx anti-yeast agents and all their
patients go through horrible die-off reactions, are clear of yeast for
a little while, then get it back in spades, only to repeat the cycle
infinitely. The ND's use continuous treatment with "natural" means
and their patients stay in control of their yeast problems for long
periods - months to years - between flare-ups. I have never heard of
an ND taking months or years to get someone's gut bugs under control.
On this list, you will see Dana's multitudinous posts about chelating
a yeasty kid and doing it without major problems by taking a
reasonably sensible approach to her "do it yourself" yeast treatment -
she is just one example out of many of how things should be done.
