    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?

    Hi there, I was recently prescribed Lauricidin by my naturopath -- 1/4 tsp twice a day. I knew that would be too much but three days ago I did try a little less than a quarter tsp in one day -- maybe 8 pellets. I couldn't get out of bed the next day. Yesterday I took maybe four pellets and I'm incapacitated today. I don't know if I'm strong enough to do this.
    About the heavy metal poisoning -- how do you get tested for this and how to you make a link between high levels and the effects of Lauricidin?
    thanks,
    Laura

    Did you find an amount that worked for you?

    I just started with one pellet this morning and a few hours later felt nausea, headachey for most of the day - so took another pellet tonight - my sinuses feel clear, but would be surprised it could act that quickly.

    No, I haven't taken it in quite a while. Pretty soon I'm going to start Famvir. If I try Lauricidin again in the future I'll just start with one pellet. I hope it works for you.

    If memory serves, I only experienced mild side effects the first day or two - I built up the number of pellets slowly - it hasn't made me worse - I continue to take them but am not cured.

    I just ordered some lauricidin and have been using it for about a week now with no effect. I started with 1/2 scoop at each meal but am now up to a full scoop 3x day. I'll update if I feel any effect.
