Avatar f tn Talk to your doctor first!!!! Whey protein concentrate, NOT protein isolates Protein isolates are proteins stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. There are three problems with that... • All isolates are exposed to acid processing. • Your body cannot assimilate proteins in isolated form. • Due to over-processing, isolates are deficient in key amino acids and nutritional cofactors.
Avatar n tn Free from Toxic Heavy Metals or at Such Low Levels NOT to be a Health Risk. Many protein powders both whey and non-whey could contain dangerous levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic.

Avatar m tn You want a whey protein powder with medium chain triglycerides (MCT). These are easily absorbed, digested quickly, and utilized as energy without causing digestive stress. Ideally, you want a product in which the MCT come from the best source of all coconut oil. Many protein powders both whey and non-whey could contain dangerous levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic.

Avatar m tn hanging the clothes) evilsanta224, my diet has improved somewhat with major hospital grade nutritional powders (Carbs, Protein, Essential Fats, All Vitamins and Minerals, High Calorie) but it's not making any different. Just had a major sinus flair up also and they did a swab and found a severe candida infection their, but my bloods always come back with a high level of candida so this did not surprise me.

Avatar m tn Easy to Digest, NOT Causing Digestive Stress Many whey products contain long-chain fatty acids which are hard to digest and require bile acids to absorb. You want a whey protein powder with medium chain triglycerides (MCT). These are easily absorbed, digested quickly, and utilized as energy without causing digestive stress. Ideally, you want a product in which the MCT come from the best source of all -- coconut oil.

Avatar m tn Blue-green algae, especially AFA harvested from natural lakes, are easily contaminated with toxins such as microcystins and heavy metals. Because Health Canada, the equivalent of the U.S. FDA, found that some blue-green algae supplements (but not spirulina) contain high levels of microcystin, it has warned consumers—especially those thinking of giving AFA to their children—about potential contamination.
Avatar n tn In the medical study where I go there are dozens of people that, for various reasons, they do edta infusions, typically for detoxify from heavy metals. The majority of them told me that they are improving and they feel better, many of them did 20 or 30 or 60 edta infusions. For the moment it is for that, even if I am not feeling improvements, I want to going on.
Avatar n tn Heavy metals can accumulate in zinc deficiency because zinc normally takes them out of the body, and heavy metals then displace zinc further. Someone I know with ADHD, who is low in zinc, also craves strong smells, like deodorants, gasoline, lighter fluid, air fresheners, cleaning products, so I believe these cravings are from a mineral imbalance, probably with some accumulation of heavy metals (which all Americans have to some extent).

Avatar n tn The only thing I could associate with the change was eating chocolate and can recall an increase in my chocolate consumption over the past two weeks. Can an adult develop a food allergy from out of nowhere?
363682 tn?1299492962 My own doctor has, thus-far, not taken it very seriously and tends to take the line that, after years of 'getting away with it, maybe you've finally developed an allergy!
Avatar m tn I just got out of the military so I guess the VA hospital wanted to rule out everything that ISN'T wrong with me, lol. So all the bloodwork and tests came back that I was perfectly fit, with no physical "conditions" so to speak. So, I'm now kind of leaning towards the "Restless Leg Syndrome" conclusion...
Avatar n tn First cover your matresses n pillows w/ a heavy plastic and seal with packing tape. Spray with the mixture everyday. If you're severely infested as I was then do it several times a day. Buy a 20 qt pot to boil your clothes, sheets and towels daily.I bought a canning pot with a rack for $25.00 from OSH. I let things boil for an hour. That means actual boiling time. You should not use comfortors or blankets. Use a space heater or or fan instead, as the temperature dictates.
Avatar f tn just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin. i blush very easily and when i get hot my face turns ruddy. but they just do not know what this specific area on my nose is being caused by so here i sit w/ more bandages and more of my nose shaved off. i am sorry about not having insurance and having to worry through this alone.
Avatar f tn Gallons and gallons of water with fresh lemon and lime. And pharmaceutical grade bentonite clay powders that you mix with water and a little fruit juice. It's an ancient remedy. Drugs work for this, just not the drug that the doctors give you. That drug is USELESS. Go to wikipedia and look up "anthelminthic" drugs 10 out of 12 of them are not approved for use in the US. WHY IS THAT?
