    Dreambirdie,

    I have been trying the Lauricidin in recent months and am only able to tolerate one pellet per day, 3 to 4 days per week, because of the die-off. My doctor wanted me to take 2 or 3 scoops per day and he scoffed when I told him I was only able to take one or two pellets. I'm comforted to know that others also can't handle very much of it, as I was feeling like a total wimp that I couldn't take more.

    My doctor gave me a seaweed supplement to take that is a heavy metal chelator. I haven't started it yet, but the name is Modifilan Pure Brown Seaweed Extract. He said to take one per day. I haven't noticed any heavy metal detox yet, but I'm not sure if I can distinguish between a herx reaction and that. Also, I haven't been taking the Lauricidin consistently -- I avoid it on the days I'm really feeling bad, which has been quite often.

    Please keep us posted on how it's going with the heavy metal detoxing aspect of this.

    I too keep trying the Lauricidin but can only tolerate a few pellets, it absolutely floors me, how people get up to several scoops is beyond me:(

    I also forgot to mention that my doctor said to take serrapeptase and nattokinase enzymes on an empty stomach at least an hour before taking the Lauricidin (which I think is best taken with food). The enzymes break down the biofilm that the bugs secrete to protect themselves from being destroyed. I think he said to take 2 of each of the enzymes a couple times per day -- although he also suggested taking a couple of scoops of Lauricidin. I've been taking one of each of the enzymes an hour before breakfast and then I take the Lauricidin after breakfast.

    I agree, maryb -- I don't know how people can take that much Lauricidin. Maybe they have much stronger immune systems, so they don't have as many bugs.

    Dreambirdie,

    I was googling for lauricidin as it relates to systemic/chronic fungal/yeast infections. I've finally figured out that (probably candida overgrowth) is what I have had for the last 23+ years. As a result, my health is very fragile at this time...fragile enough that I really need to be careful with what I do and not end up killing myself with too much die-off.

    I came across this post you wrote on lauricidin, and you mentioned that you had to start off with only 1 to 3 pellets a day and still had a strong die-off reaction.

    Could you tell me if you've gotten better and if you still have to take the Lauricidin? If so, are you taking more than 1 to 3 tablets a day?

    Thanks in advance. You can also email me at iamcindymay@gmail.com

    Cindy

    Is lauricidin effective against mycoplasma?
