Hi Sue...From what I've seen of your protocol, you appear to be taking all the support nutrients and minerals which is very good. However, because of your gut problems, I think that you should split the protocol that you are taking into three stages in order to give you an easier and gentler ride wrt Herx reactions and heavy metal detox reactions.
Your 1st Month's Protocol
Gymnema Sylvestre Tea -- Taken three times a day or more
Undecylenic Acid or Undecanoic Acid -- Taken twice a day as advised on the bottle.
Nystatin -- (optional)
Cilantro liquid extract -- three times a day -- start small and work up the dose
Milk of Magnesia(Philip's Brand) -- Take a full laxative dose once a week to help rapidly clear poisons, parasites, candida etc from the intestines
The above protocol will actively detox your body and will also suppress and prevent candida morphing into its more virulent fungal form (because of the GS and Undecylenic Acid). The GS will also act to reduce the sugar in your blood and will go some way towards repairing your intestines(leaky gut etc). The Cilantro and Chlorella are strong heavy metal detoxers which will also help to destroy candida biofilms -- please be aware that you may well get detox reactions. If this happens and its unbearable, reduce detox dosages accordingly to tolerable levels. The nystatin will only act in the intestines to kill candida but, in my own experience, candida usually can easily adjust to nystatin after a while. And so if you're not getting any Herx reaction at all from taking the Nystatin, then I would say that it may be having no effect at all against the candida (which has already adjusted to it).
2nd Month's Protocol
Add the following to the above protocol:
Turpentine + Castor Oil
Alkalize(if you can)
This is a much stronger protocol against candida/parasites and so you should expect an increase in Herx reactions. In the third month you should move onto the full protocol which is described here.
Your tendonitis problems would also seem to indicate that you have a large uncontrolled or unregulated excess of calcium in your blood. Therefore I would take a much higher dose of magnesium. I usually take 1500 mgs magnesium chloride every day as my own normal dose because I prefer honest orthomolecular dosages. So I would double your magnesium dose to at least 400mgs to 500 mgs taken twice a day. I would also take at least 200mgs to 300 mgs potassium gluconate per day since potassium also plays a significant part in calcium regulation in the body. High calcium in the blood also helps candida to form biofilms and also inhibits the thyroid from absorbing iodine and can cause low thyroid symptoms. Sodium thiosulfate will also help to remove calcium, chlorine, chloramine as well as heavy metals from the body. Chanca piedra is a herb that also helps to lower calcium levels in the blood. Chanca piedra is also highly protective for the liver, kidney and urinary system, so if you think that you might be getting UTI problems then take Chanca piedra every day -- it is a strong anti-pathogen. CMD(google it) or concentrated mineral drops is also worth taking every day to maintain proper serum and trace mineral levels in the body.
I'm not sure about the status of your digestion, but I would tend to at least take HCL as well as pancreatin enzymes with every meal in order to assure proper breakdown and absorption of food nutrients into the body. The full protocol for impaired digestion or low stomach acid is given here.
Currently you are taking Iosol as your iodine source. Iosol only contains 1.8 mgs iodine per drop. A 5% lugols contains 6.25 mgs iodine/iodide per drop. So if you switch to lugols, please be aware that it contains much more iodine per drop than Iosol. Start small and work up the proper dose slowly if you can.
I'm just going to speak generally now. One of the best ways to repair your intestines, get rid of all allergies and increase the working strength of your immune system is to take bovine colustrum. What's more, because it is The First Food of Life, it will contain almost every nutrient that your body needs and will also contain 30% to 50% antibodies from the mother cow. This will increase the strength of your immune system by leaps and bounds. Colostrum is ideally taken simultaneously along with probiotics for best effect. I also realize that good quality colostrum is quite expensive -- but I'm just mentioning it here for your own information.
You also mention methylation as a possible problem. I suspect, from indications such as food allergies, asthma, pain etc that you have high inflammation with high histamine levels. This means that you may well be under-methylated. This means that you would possibly benefit from supplementing B6, Methyl Folate(not folic acid), Methionine and Triglyceride. I'm really not qualified to comment on the gene aberrations which might be evident -- such as MTHFR and other gene aberrations that can occur with methylation issues -- The only thing I would advise is that you get yourself checked and tested by a qualified, methylation-literate doctor.
As regards your suspected pyrolurea problems -- if you just have a simple hair analysis and you find that you have very low levels of B6 and Zinc then this should be enough to confirm pyrolurea problems in your body. If this is the case then you must take higher than normal doses of zinc and B6 to alleviate this problem.
