Thank you for all your work on EC, it has changed my life. Please take your time with this. Here's my situation. I am a 34yr old male. Up to 4 years ago, I was an avid vaccination person and used a ton of antibiotics and prescribed opiates for knee/back injuries. 6 years ago I had a surgery to wrap my stomach around my esophagus to reduce the massive amount of GERD I had. I have Barrett's esophagus, dysplasia, etc. My esophagus looked like "an 80 yr old's". Had I know then that diet change would have fixed a lot... Now I avoid white sugar, gluten, and most processed foods. I use stevia for sweetening. I am now hypothyroid, one DR says I have Hashimotos, another says I do not. I have tried the Abrams protocol of tiering up to 50mg of Lugol's a day. It did seem to make things worse (maybe indicating Hashimotos?). I am mostly positive candida is a big problem for me. I am two weeks into taking 1/8 tsp of borax a day (live in USA). My severe constipation has been vastly improved since then. I have also been taking about 750mcg of methylene blue, mostly for nootropic purposes as my "brain fog" has been severe too. I understand that mixing it with Vitamin C and taking it at higher doses will help vs candida too? I'm just unsure how to join the two, and proper dosage. For example do I just buy ascorbic acid pills and take a few grams after taking MB? Or should I get powder and drop the MB onto it, and then try to cap it? My family has a history of GERD, asthma (had it as a kid), and IBS. My plan was to keep doing the 5 on 3 off for Borax, and I saw on EC the miracles of sodium thiosulfate. Seeing as it's cheap (very important), I was going to order some of the 99% crystals (lab grade) and take 1 grain a day at night. From what I understand that will clean out the colon. What are your thoughts? I'm also interested in what I read about turpentine, however it's hard to wrap my western mind around that. I've got 34 years of brainwashing to undo. To clarify I'm off most of my older acidic western medicines. The only consistent drug I take is 90MG of Armour pig thyroid. I supplement D3, l tyrosine, and magnesium citrate. I also have a large amount of diaomatrious earth, but have not taken it internally yet.
