Posted by Leah (Philadelphia, Pa) on 04/23/2013

[YEA]  Dear truth be told, I'm wondering of you have tried a dietary approach to your condition. I'm not a Dr but it is my understanding that carbohydrates such as grains, sugar, alcohol are hard on the liver and that it is possible to heal your liver with good fat: Eggs, calves liver, coconut oil, avocado, butter, olive oil, cod liver oil, etc. I know others have done apple/beet/carrot juice fasting with good results for liver support. Lecithin is another liver cure you can read about on here which is somewhat related to the fat cleanse.

There is also a section on this website devoted to treating a variety of viruses and I think you may find those options helpfull too. Some off the top of my head are colloidal or ionic silver, iodine, food grade h2o2, olive leaf, apple cider vinegar, aspirin, essiac tea, raw garlic, ginger, turmeric, chilli peppers etc. - lots of virus busting liver supporting options if you troll around this website a bit.

My dads old drinking buddy swears he cured himself of hep c by quitting alcohol and drinking kambucha tea instead. Probiotics are also good if you have ever taken antibiotics, since so much of our immunity comes from the friendly gut bacteria (they make vitamins for us, fight off infection, digest our food etc). Good bacteria like healthy fats like those mentioned above while bad bacteria and yeasts like sugars. Apple cider vinegar and kambucha tea are both good to support a healthy digestive tract but there are many options for getting good bacteria from probiotic yogurt, kefir, kimchee, and saurkrout.

Are you taking a muli mineral and multivitamin? Do you get enough sunlight to make vitamin d. I know jaundice in babies responds very well to light treatment which means the liver needs vitamin d to regenerate. Other viral diseases tend to respond to sun treatment as well. Dr Mercola highly recommends getting enough sun to keep your immunity up.

Two other websites I find infinitely helpful are westonaprice.org and mercola.com. I also like Dr Myhill's website for specific nutritional recommendations.

I'm wishing you well again soon and I hope some of this information proves useful.

Does anybody know if using a heating pad over your liver when sleeping will raise liver enzyme levels? Thank you.

I discovered our whole body is circulatory, over 80,000 miles of blood vessels and the LIVER is loaded with them also and with it being a cleansing mechanism of the body, if it gets sick, toxic and unhealthy this causes a back-up into the body. 2010, when I almost lost my twin sister, I got blessed to hear about a 37 yr old with 80 yr old blood vessels and now he is 74 with blood vessels of a 12 yr old. You can bet his liver is clean. This is a Doctor and it is validated by Nobel prize and both the doctor and a heart institute use it on every single patient. My sister lives today with no more congestive heart failure and is without meds. Be blessed

I found at a very young age that my liver has always been at risk; I found recently after many years of pain in lower back and being way under weight but severe swelling through out my whole body, was caused from mold, I was also surprised to find that 90% of the USA has chances of mold build up because of the continuous dampness year round causes this mold, the worse case scenario is that doctors nation wide are treating it as an infection which adds insult to injury because most antibiotics are made from mold.

Recently I almost had a heart attack because the antibiotic ciproflaxine made my chest feel like it had been crushed. I think from now on God willing I plan on not seeing a doctor unless absolutely needed. I later found that I had neck surgery that was not needed. How sad a world we live in.

I seriously feel that it's herbs that are holding me together and trusting totally in my own instincts and this website. Thank you Ted and other's that have shared their much needed input, it's the glue that holds us all together.

God bless us all, Peace

Usa, I agree with you on the environment we live in can be toxic to us. I proved this, when I was sent to Colombia, South America with the Red Cross for 7 months. I live in NY and had asthma that worsened with 9/11. I was allergic to everything, so many foods and always felt sick and not really strong, especially when I hit 39. Within my first month in Colombia, I no longer had to use my asthma inhalers, or was allergic to so many things. I was eating fruits off trees all day long and lost over 25 lbs. I was so happy and healthy. Upon my return to NY, I slowly deteriorated and within 4 months I had my first asthma attack again. I thought I had been cured, so much that I wasn't even carrying an inhaler and had to rush to the e.r. I have since then considered getting my degree and since I am bilingual moving down to South America and living life, not just surviving like I feel we do here in the United States, unfortunately. This is a great country, and I have served it, but it is not serving me. Norma

I used to have asthma really bad and had to use a inhaler quite a few times a day. When I started perimenopause I had an allergic reaction to Chinese food and ended up in the hospital getting a breathing treatment and put on steroids. Later I found out I was allergic to MSG. Well, as you know MSG is in so many foods but I was determined to not eat it any longer so I wouldn't end up in the hospital again. After 3 months, I wasn't having attacks as often. After 1 year I didn't need an inhaler unless I had a respitory infection. I had less sinus infections. It has been 5 years now. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels not to have to use an inhaler or feel like you can't breathe. I wish they would take MSG out of food as I believe this is why so many children have asthma now. It's a shame the FDA allows this.

MSG is highly toxic, and apparently the toxicity level increases by A LOT if you reheat leftovers with MSG in it. It all begins with us requesting MSG chemical free food and fluoride free water

Hello, I was just wondering if it's good or bad to swallow stones when eating fruits, ie, grapes, watermelon...I thought it is good as normally stones contain minerals and vitamins, but is it ok for the liver. I am not talking about juicing or blending whole fruits, but swallowing watermelon seeds while eating pieces of fruit.

Thank you!

Lana;

About the 13 year old with jaundice;

Normally jaundice associated with Liver problems; Google "jaundice causes" and you'll see a number of liver associated issues. But for a 13 year old, one of the viruses that cause Hepatitis (A, B, C and D).

Earth Clinic has a lot on Hep. "Oscar" writes about the benefits of BHT and much is on the "Ailments" section under Hepatitis or the Remedies section under BHT.

I'm big on Colloidal Silver and if this were me, if I had jaundice, I'd immediately take a quarter glass of CS three times daily to kill the virus....assuming it is a virus.

When I had severe Hep A, I was offered Tylenol at the ER, and then many times by nurses after hospitalization. Fortunately, I had heard Dr. Rosenberg tell how Tylenol, which was advised to be given to children with fevers instead of aspirin in the 80's, was causing liver failure. My own pediatric doctors told me the link between Reyes Syndrome and aspirin was not proven, so I infrequently gave my children baby aspirin on the rare occasions when it seemed needed. I believe refusing to take any Tylenol in the hospital may be one of the reasons I survived.

Rsw: Prior to receiving 2 units of blood transfusion, the nurse recommended Tylenol (to help prevent reaction) but I had read of toxicity issues so I mentioned the likely possibility of sickened liver and ask for half a tab. Some time ago I tried Ibuprofen but it caused venous stress so I dropped it. For inflammation I currently take Celadrin and Flax Oil.

Thanks, Timh,

This is the first time I have heard about Celadrin, but I looked it up and it looks good! Do you take the capsules or the topical cream? I have Flax Oil and I take curcumin that has enhanced absorption, although I don't notice much difference with it. Supposedly a good brand but doesn't seem to work for me.

Hope you are doing well. Your recent posts seem to be indicating some improvement. Yeah! Thanks so much for the pointing out the Celadrin. I will put it on my list!

Rsw: Your concern is very much appreciated and of course makes me hope all is good w/ you. I caught myself being overoptimistic in one of my recent post as my improvements seem to always get overshadowed by the progressive nature of my illness as I know that death is near... until Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc (shoutout "thanks a million Dave") posted info about Calcium 2 AEP (of which I somehow have never heard of) so I started 4 caps daily on Monday w/ immediate and cumulative results as of today. The benefits info has proved 100% correct in my toxic condition. So my hope for sufficient recovery is gaining.

I take 1 350mg Celadrin softgel daily w/ noticeable results. I also take Turmeric when I have it in stock. Eating Pineapple is also good anti-inflammatory.

For clearing liver stones, is it enough to do coconut oil with lemons everyday? If not, and I do the olive oil with citrus cleanse, are there any substitutes for the apple and cranberry juice, as I have acid problems. Finally, a general diet question. Is it okay to take flax oil, whey drink and mushrooms, or will these adversely affect my PH?

I was recently having upper abdominal pain and had a lot of testing done. The only thing found was a 1.5 inch liver cyst in the exact spot where I was having pain and bloating. The doctor told me "these don't cause symptoms" however with what I have been reading I know it is not true. Surgery on the liver is not very safe and I am desperate for a remedy.

@Marisa: It would be nice to know exactly what type cyst you have. In the meantime, I would recommend applying a strong magnet directly to the area for about 30 min daily fallowed by a Don Croft Zapper for 30 min directly over the area. Fallow this w/ garlic oil soft-gels in the am session and Oregano Oil soft-gels in the pm session. These remedies will reduce the infection and inflammation and eventually kill the cyst; may take several months treatment.

Posted by Joy (Battleground, Wash) on 03/09/2013

I have over thirty of these on and in my liver... they called them simple liver cysts at first. I had the big ones, over a liter of liquid drained and they refilled that week. I had them surgically removed from the surface and new ones formed. They seem to be autoimmune.

The standard liver support herbs are Milk Thistle Seed, Turmeric Root, Artichoke Leaves. How these would affect your condition, I don't know, but will most likely improve your health. Inflammation would seem to be a major issue.

Joy, I replied to you about the gelatin capsules... Sounds to me like you have sensitivities to the binders and fillers in your meds. I am extremely sensitive to manufactured glutamic acid (MSG). I cannot ingest gelatin capsules. I cannot eat yogurt. I had to get the magnesium powder because the magnesium citrate caused PVC (premature venrticular contractions) that felt, to me, like heart flutters. After all my tests that was the diagnosis I was given. I then found out about the "citrate". It is processed from corn because it is cheaper than from citrus fruit. The FDA is not protecting us and I said earlier on this site that they should be renamed the Fool and Deceive Agency. I think you should stop taking all the processed things you are taking. Especially yogurt. The dairy cows are being fed GMO grains and grasses. As I mentioned, it has taken me over twenty years of piecemeal learning and it is difficult to "spit out" in a few sentences how I know what I've learned.

All of our fruits vegetables have been engineered to last longer. Corn and Soy are two of the deadliest ingredients in our food supply and they are in practically everything. They are being fed to critters we eat, get milk and eggs from and are difficult to digest. Nothing is safe. Moderation is essential.

I have to apologize for being so piecemeal but that is the nature of someone who has had two traumatic brain injuries... Comatose after one. From my experience, you seem to be ingesting things that are in conflict with each other. I don't feel you could be "eating healthy" if you keep having problems. I have had to do a little research to use food as my medicine. This will have to be continued if you are REALLY interested... There is much information I could share but it will be piecemeal and I want to be thorough when I give it. It is important to stop eating raw fruits and vegetables because they are not digested well. They must be cooked to be easier to digest. What I've learned is contrary to what has been acceptable as "healthier eating". Canned and frozen are better because they are picked at their peak and blanched.

I had just posted my "last post" to Joy after reading what I posted because I think I was more confusing than helpful. I gave more explanation but lost my connection and lost what I had typed. I think I should have told her she sounded like she was sensitive to hidden sources of MSG instead of the binders and fillers in supplements (they can be made from genetically modified plants and are a hidden source). Those of us who recognize our sensitivity refer to "MSG" as any processed free glutamic acid. It is not Monosodium Glutamate but it does the same damage. It is in many different foods under many different names and everyone will react differently and it can be carcinogenic. I forget the rest of what I had said.

Hindsight is 20/20 and I learned my "cysts" wherever they were came from too many carbohydrates. All of our dairy (whether milk, cheese or butter) is from cows being fed genetically modified grains and/or grasses. I thought I was getting unadulterated whole milk in glass bottles from free-range, grass fed dairy cows. I not only had a hard time keeping my weight down but I kept getting more "cyst-like" blemishes. I knew they previously came from too many carbs but I was limiting my carb intake.

I called the dairy and asked if they were feeding their cows corn. They reluctantly replyed "yes" along with the leaves. Knowing the milk in glass bottles is safer I started getting 2% milk and my "cysts" reduced in size. I still eat butter but I get it without salt and use sea salt. I limit my cheese to 1/2-1oz. at a time. I don't know if you are familiar with the low carb diet but meat, eggs, cheese and butter are not supposed to have any carbs. This can't be true anymore because of what they are being fed but who has the money to do any testing? I don't believe there are any reliable labs anyway.

Boy, I got way off here... I don't know what you read or what I said that got your interest. I'm not real familiar with how postings work here but I'm going to try to "flag" this so I know when you reply. It's not good for me to sit here long and sometimes it upsets my husband.

PHEW, took me a long time to find this post.

I am in the process, I hope, of correcting a diagnosis of IBS and have to spend frequent time in the bathroom. Having had a breech vaginal delivery makes things difficult. I'm sure I'm a candidate for a colostomy but I do not want to live the rest of my life like that.

It's hard to know what "eating healthy" is. What is good for one may not be good for someone else. I'll just try to explain my thought processes of what I am doing and why. I could very well be wrong but I'm gonna try. I just started using coconut oil so I only use a sliver (about 1/2 tsp. )with my butter. This part was added after I started this... I only use sea salt with turmeric and ginger. I just read that cayenne pepper stops bleeding so I've starting using some of that.

I have damaged myself in a way that I need to replace the lining of my colon. There is about a two inch section that is not there. (actually that part is the rectum) The nerve cells are dead and I read that garlic helps regenerate the lining. I try to eat green beans (cooked well) and either carrots or cauliflower, chewing them up with a garlic clove.

Carrots are good for Vit. A, necessary for tissue repair. Cauliflower contains Vit. K needed for blood clotting and the green beans are a good source of magnesium that binds with protein before being absorbed in the intestines. It also offers some protection against MSG.

I then have a couple medium eggs with onions. Sometimes I have an ounch of cheese with them or I'll have them on a small red potato with the skin, a sliver of butter (without salt) and a sliver of CO. I also use the sea salt with turmeric and ginger.

A long time ago I read that zits, "clogged pores" occur because of eating too many carbs and not enough Vit. A. Looking back, I had a hard time with my complexion at the same time I had reoccurring cysts on my ovaries and I had one behind my ear.

I hope this helps you a little. You did not reply so I don't know what else to tell you. Please be aware that I have got to finish a course before the twenty-ninth and I do not maintain an internet connection. It's taking me a long time because I cannot sit here long. I gave an explanation of what happened but because it has nothing to do with what EC is for, I don't think it would be allowed. I wish I could email what I had typed. I saved it in case. ~Kathy

Hi Kathy from Happyville, You sound like you eat a healthy diet and have overcome a lot of obstacles. I added a full spectrum multi mineral lately to my intake and that has been helping. I also use two magnesium citrate a day and hope to add some potassium citrate soon. Maybe get some zip in my doo dah!

I use 3-7 tsp. A day of coconut oil plus coconut flakes without sweetener. I love the improvements in my health. Coconut oil is the only oil that doesn't tax the liver. My skin is full of circulation and healthy color and plumped out, less wrinkles, dark circles, I have had since childhood, are lessening.

I started using the oil for the first time in Nov. or Dec. of 2012, after reading a book on Alzheimers.

I bought a coconut oil book recently and there is a candida flush diet in the book (3-7 days to complete it). I have to get some lime and try to adjust to it before going on the cleanse... Maybe in May. I had a chronic belly ache till I was 40 but rarely get one if I'm careful. Too much... too soon makes me lose ground in my recovery.

It says in the book that the coconut meat and oil heal the colon also, you said you have IBS---it polishes , cleans, helps restore the tone and helps ph and strengthens, nourishes the tissue from mouth to rectum.

I have lifelong candida issues (from my mother) and that affects the way your body processes food. You can eat and have little benefit. I've been on the health search for over 30 yrs. and overcame a lot of issues but age brings new battles to overcome.

Do you have cysts on the liver ? I have no other cysts. I plan to overcome them, maybe dandelion tea , our yard is full of the stuff.

Hi De, I don't know if Joy is still available. I've tried to contact her through EC CS but never received a reply. The last she posted about her painful prolapse issue, I was dealing with mine. She posted about using Witch Hazel to "pull her bladder back up" or something similar and I was discovering that the "bladder prolapse" is actually stool accumulating and pushing against the vaginal wall. As soon as I could find her post about the problem, I tried to alert her to the fact that the "prolapse" was not her bladder. After I posted my findings, someone else posted in agreement with me.

I delivered a baby in seventh month. After one month my gall bladder was removed. And for the past three months I am suffering from liver damage. I had yellow eyes for a month but I thought it is because of lack of sun. Earlier I never took any allopathy medicines. One fine day I was hospitalized with liver damage and they said I am under nourished and put all kinds of fluids with Iv. My body was totally swollen with big stomach and elephant like legs. I had to go for paracentesis two times so far. Now the swelling of legs is totally came down but my stomach is still huge. They also suggested liver transplant with 50% chances. I am 29 yrs and I hv 6 yrs old son, and two daughters 4 and half and the small one is 8 months. Can some body help me? Can somebody tell me can I drain my stomach with home remedies? Can repair my liver with home remedies? I am vivid reader of EC and I always tell my friends to look for home remedies on EC. I want to be healthy for my kids.

Dandelion is beneficial to the liver. If you eat the leaves is will help you to get read of extra water in your tissues. Search the web for more info on Dandelion and other plants that support the liver.

You have to consider Swedish bitter internally and also externally as a compress on the liver -it may fix the jaundice. It is possible that after the bladder surgery some of the bile ducts got blocked (inflammation or bad surgery)

@Tracy: Here is a link http://www.liversupport.com/ that provides lots of info as well as products specifically helpful for liver conditions. Also, Swanson Foods has a formula "Milk Thistle Combination" that I personally recommend in your condition as it will help rebuild the liver as well as strengthen the kidneys and promote diuresis. Also on the must list is Cooked or Raw Liver. Some find cooked liver difficult to eat, but I have found the cooked chicken liver at KFC (Cournel's Recipe) to be more in the direction of delicious. Raw Liver Glandular or Liquid Liver Extract is a supplement taken by mouth and will greatly increase liver cell regeneration when used in combination with the herbal formula of your choice.

Hi, I am new to this site and while it has a wealth of information I think I am in need of some advice and guidance. I am a cancer survivor but only learned about alternative treatments after the radical mastectomy and chemo but at least now if it comes back I know I won't go that route. The advice I need is for a good friend that has liver disease. He has no insurance and not much money and the doctors have given him 6 months. He has done some chemo (I don't know why, it's not cancer) but it's been several months. He does not have hepititis. I firmly believe that there is still hope for him but am a little overwhelmed with so much information. For instance, I don't think he should do a strong detox for fear of overloading his already damaged liver so what would be a safe, slow detox for him? What all treatments here should I try? A few? All of them together? I certainly don't want to make the poor man worse! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Depending on what kind of liver disease your friend has, there are two treatments that have given success. Dr. Burt Berkson (google him for more information) has used Alpha Lipoic Acid and low dose naltrexone to regenerate and heal liver disease. Oscar, on this site under Hep C & B and other lipid coated viral diseases, has a BHT program that has worked for many, including himself. These therapies are NOT used together. The BHT works best by itself or with a few vitamins or supplements. (See what Oscar recommends, but I think he mainly stresses BHT by itself, at least in the morning with water only. ). The ALA and LDN work as a separate therapy, not in conjunction with the BHT. Best wishes.

Thanks so much! That was what I needed to know! I decided to do the Milk Thistle, Alpha lipoic acid and selinum combo. He said the damage is from heavy metals mostly and probably fatty liver as well (I suspect). I am having him drink 1Tbls baking soda, 2 Tbls apple cider vinager in 8 oz. of good water each morning. I want him to take some cold pressed, organic flax seed oil and organic virgin coconut oil but I don't know the proper amounts for those yet. I am having him use the coconut oil as his only cooking oil tho. My health food store has PH water so I got 4 gallons to start and also Acqua Panna spring water because they sell it in glass bottles. Starting out having him take 500 mg Milk thistle (the one I bought also has liver powder) with breakfast and lunch and will build up to 900 mg per dose. Also 300mg Alpha lipoic acid 2x a day and Selinium 200 MICRO grams 2x a day. There seems to be some confusion as to the correct amout of Selinium to give, depending on which post you read. Some say micro grams and some say milli grams so I figured starting with the lowest dose would be the safest route. I got him a good multi vitamin and extra C and B complex. He is to eat fresh organic vegitables, as much raw as possible. Good water, dandilion root tea and green tea. No processed foods, no canned foods, no sugar of any kind so fruit extracts only. Not much meat and it must be drug free and GMO free. After a few weeks if he seems like he is able I wanted to try the beet root protocal altho it scares me a little because I'm afraid it might tax his liver too much so we will see. Well this is the plan thus far. If you notice something we should be doing but aren't please let me know. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks again!

Hi, you should google for cannabis oil. It treats almost every ailment. I know it isn't available everywhere but when you want it you will get it! In the Netherlands it is 'accepted' to grow 5 plants if there is a medicinal need for it. When you can grow the plants you can make the oil yourself. I already saw some American websites selling products with cannabinoiden but they are very expensive! All legal products with cannabinoiden are made under license of a patend which is owned by the US government.

CB: thc is medicinal when raw. When heated thc is hallucigenic. Cannabinoids are medicinal either raw or heated. Many reviews say that cold pressed hemp oil is beneficial even though the raw thc and cannabinoids are miniscule.

Dr. Burt Berkson has shown that the combination of low dose naltrexone and alpha Lipoic acid can heal the liver. You can see his videos if you google his name. You can also read about how he healed two people who were given no hope of living after ingesting poison mushrooms in Julia Schopick's book, "Honest Medicine. " He believes the ALA should be European sourced. Best wishes.

As a pharmacologically active opioid antagonist Naltrexone, LDN works by blocking opioid receptors, which in turn helps activate your body's immune system.

I'd have him take Reduced Glutathione supplements. This will detox and protect his liver thereby helping the body heal his liver.

What do you mean by "reduced Glutathone" supplements? Do you have a specific name? Thx much.

I mis-spelled it... Reduced glutathione. It essentially allows the body to bypass a conversion steps necessary when versus other forms of glutathione so used directly by the body. One of the reasons why acetaminophen damages the liver is because it depletes the liver of glutathione. When glutathione is depleted, great amount of damage is done to the liver.

I'm not a Dr. but if he were my father I would get him off chemo ASAP and put him on a glass of water with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt 3x day. Then I would have him go on alpha lipoic acid 100 mgs 3x day and acetyl L carnitine 200 mgs 3 x a day and then eat only organic foods and not much meat but do eat some and only natural meats... NO antibiotics or drugs fed animals... Also 200-400 mgs plant based selenium if very important. Depending on his weight drink 2-4 quarts of good water. Milk thistle about 500 mgs a day increase to 100 mgs... Don't give up! I beat stage 4 cirrhosis and cured it in 5 months and drs said it couldn't be done.

I would like to add this to the excellent advice offered by Mr. Rhee. Dr. Burt Berkson is THE expert in treating liver disease and has many videos on the Internet with his treatment protocol. He has had his own office for years in Los Cruses, NM. He began his career by saving the lives of two people who had eaten poison mushrooms and was told to document their deaths. Instead, he contacted the CDC, got the necessary drugs, treated the patients and they are both alive today thanks to Dr. Berkson. For his efforts, his supervising doctors had no interest in what he had done to save the lives of these two people, and instead criticized him for not following orders. http://www.prescription2000.com/Interview-Transcripts/2010-01-22-burt-berkson-lipoic-acid-naltrexone-transcript.html

Hi Timh; Please consider this: Stop the detox and chelation. It could be depleting vital nutrients.

Stop or minimize zinc supplementation. It could deplete copper too much and cause neuropathy from copper deficiency.

Discuss with Naturopath about getting B12 injections.

I'm concerned that the numbness could spread to your hands and organs. This happened to me, and I do not want it to happen to you.

Thanks Tim, I appreciate your consideration.

Ascorbic acid (Vit. C), in sufficiently high doses, staggered over the course of the 24 hour day, has the potential to do amazing things:

And a quote:

"Ascorbic acid is a potent detoxicant which counteracts and neutralizes the harmful effects of many poisons in the body. It will combat various inorganic poisons, such as mercury and arsenic, and it neutralizes the bad reactions of many organic poisons, drugs, and bacterial and animal toxins. Ascorbic acid detoxifies carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and carcinogens...."

Hope this helps! --T.

Wayseer: Thanx for the tip on Vit-C. I have been using the "pureway" trade-name C plus the Swanson Ultra C (w/ bioflavonoid) but nothing substantial and cannot tolerate more than 1 grm per dose; so given the severity of my condition it seems as if I would indeed greatly benefit from some Liposheric C (which I have not yet tried).

Connie: have you not rather used the sublingual method for B-12 ?? over "injections". My neuropathy hasn't "spread" for some 12 yrs now, so I don't expect this, but it could be possible. As for absorption, after taking only two doses of Nystatin my absorption and digestion seem greatly improved. As for Zinc, the ND recommended as very important, especially for immunity. I also take copper to maintain a balance. I always take EDTA at least 2 hrs away from other minerals. I guess it's all a method of using medicinal allies to one's own advantage. Without much for diagnostics one must be very sensitive as to how one "feels".
