Edema and Fungal Issues in 14 Yr Old Girl

Posted by A (South Africa) on 07/28/2013

Hi Ted, Hope you are well. Thanks for all your wonderful advice on earthclinic. There is something wrong with my 14 year old daughter last year after her 13th birthday she gain weight over night and I mean within 48 hrs. Then her the middle of her back was very sore. She shakes especially when she is hungry but this time she was having about 2 shaking episodes a day and after she is so tired she slept for 2 to 3 hrs. She was constantly tired. She also urinated like once a day and very little. We took her to the hospital they did tests on her and found nothing. This was last year July till december then her weight decreased she said it felt like something was draining in her feet, through December she swelled up especially in heat and then her body will go down again. In Feb this year she swelled up and the symptoms were back again this time it was really bad we took to 3 hospitals and it looked as if we were crazy they could not find anything wrong with her. In march she got her first period and has gotten it every three weeks after that. The week before she gets her period she gets an unbearable pain on her right side of her tummy. Her menstruation is extremely heavy with a lot of big clots. I need help she still swells up and sometimes she only goes down after weeks she is out of breath?also when she has these episodes and very aggro and depressed.

Her health history she was born via cesarean section and she had thrush in her mouth when she was 4 months old, she suffers from migraines from the age of 2 very severe sometimes admitted in hospital. She had her tonsils out at the age of 4. She was in a car accident at the age of 4 and she knocked her head. She was diagnosed with ADD as she struggles to concerntrate we had her on ritilan as well as concerta but took her off after a couple of years. When she gets swollen everything from her face to her feet is swollen even her breasts she can't even walk on her feet. Then sometimes the next day she is much smaller please help she has been for many tests but they can't find anything.

Ted, I would be very grateful if you can please tell me, how to use your baking soda and borax remedy in Lupus for a 32 yr old girl, weighing 38 kg, with DVT, anemia (Hb 8.8) along with constant lupus symptoms? I appreciate your efforts and time.

The present medical system is founded on very limited tests that would not check for the presence of many microbial and fungus health issues, but a microbiologist and chemist can. However, if you give her 500 mg of ascorbic acid only every hour for at least 12 to 18 hours on the first day, she should improve. This is because a fungus does not like acidic forms of vitamin C. And to determine the dose, the first day will find out how much dosing is required for vitamin C by keeping note of her condition.

Basically your daughter's condition is candida, or related yeast infection, that is infecting the nervous system as well as causing edema and ADD. A flush out may be expected of the invading fungus, it may be in fact the yeast or fungus, but not specifically the candida albicans. But she should have fungus flushing out on the skin within minutes or hours of taking it, if any, but her conditions will improve, minus the fungus outbreak. The ADD is caused by fungus, and it causes brain fog. Vitamin C ascorbic acid is one of the simplest home remedies, the other being the lemon juice recipe, which is the easiest. The other that works in synergy may be the sea salt, not any table salt. Use 1/2 teaspoon with lots of water, say 1 to 2 liter over the next 12 hours. Once you determine the optimal dose from the first day then you can do the dose on the second and third day. The lemon juice is simple, take it every hour or two hours, 1/2 glass to 1 glass.

The gold standard of treatment for most people with ADD/ADHD is nystatin, but this treatment doesn't usually work, so I resort to basic chemistry as being the easiest. The third easiest is H2O2 3% one to two capfuls in one liter of drinking water. The fourth easiest is allopurinol between 200 mg to 400 mg, but it will take awhile as the uric acid buildup caused by candida and fungus is the other leading cause of ADD and mental disorders. The one thing that works across all ADD/ADHD cases seems to be B6 supplements, 50 mg three times a day before meals, to increase stomach acid. This will help prevent future fungus infection, so fungus doesn't keep on adding from her low stomach acid. This is why acidity is needed to kill the fungus.

Borax is a known remedy to get rid of fungus too, but is only maybe 1/8 teaspoon in 1 or 2 liter of water and use that as drinking water. This water can also have the hydrogen peroxide in it. I have a great many remedies to help the conditions, such as ammonium chloride, taurine, and taurine chloramine which works far better than MMS, or MMS 2 without the toxic hypochlorous acid that is typically found in most MMS anyway. And I also don't recommend their use anyway. The other supplement that should help is copper chlorophyllin (aka chlorophyll), beta glucan from baker's yeast, etc. Beta glucan can be applied to the skin to help allergic breakouts as well as 10% ammonium chloride, ammonium bicarbonate or ammonium carbonate solution, but ammonium chloride is better as it is less odorous.
