My LAURICIDIN story I began taking Lauricidin in the beginning of July. I've had chronic infection problems for about a decade (CFS for 32 years). Interestingly enough, the infection problems came on strong a year or two AFTER I had my last amalgam filling removed. For me there is a clear connection btwn the toxicity of the heavy metals and the chronic infections, which is becoming even more obvious as I take the Lauricidin. Initially, I took the standard adult dose of 2000 mg, but I had such a strong Herx that I was practically hallucinating (and NOT in a good way!) I backed WAY DOWN to the children's minimal dose of 1-3 pellets per day, and stayed on that for a week, but even the baby dose gave me headaches, nausea and fatigue. This was HIGHLY unusual for me, the mega-dose "supplement-arian," as my friends jokingly refer to me. So I knew the stuff was really working. Over the past 2 months, as I've gradually increased my dose to about a third of the standard adult dose, my infections have clearly diminished in severity, but the VERY WEIRD part is that as the infections get better, the symptoms of HEAVY METAL TOXICITY have reared their big old ugly heads. I was so perplexed by this reaction that I called Brian Kabara at the Lauricidin company. He is very helpful and supportive--his grandfather is the one who discovered Lauricidin. He told me that YES! Lauricidin does, in addition to being anti-viral and anti-bacterial, in fact behave like a mild chelator. So hello, I wasn't totally imagining the heavy metal toxicity reaction! (With CFS for so many years I have been DEEPLY programmed to believe that I am "imagining" my illnesses, so that is my unfortunate regression in times of confusion.) Anyway, I do know I have heavy metal toxicity, from the hair analyses I've done over the years. But to confirm it, I am going to do one of those fecal heavy metal tests. I'm going to continue to take Lauricidin, along with some other stuff (chlorophyll in HIGH doses, N-A-C, large amounts of Vit C, garlic, and fruit pectin) all to aid in minimizing the detox symptoms. I'm hoping that in time I can clobber both monsters with one big stone. Just wondering if anyone else has tried the Lauricidin and what results they've had?
