    Hi, I've been looking all over to try to make sense of this, but I am concerned about the level of active folate and it's effect on immunity/natural killer cell behavior.
    I've been more or less doing Rich's protocol with a low dosage of 400 mcg metafolin daily. I think I still tend to accumulate folate over a series of days and then need to take a break and restart to slow methylation down. This is at least what I believe is going on...
    Anyways I have had a surge of activity from Demodex mites (particularly bothering my eyes but after treating that area they seem to be branching out everywhere else) which can happen from a drop in immunity (we are usually strong enough to fight this stuff off), or an increase in fungus/yeast. After this happened I started Nystatin powder in an effort to bring down candida, in case that was the cause, but it's not helping.
    I am wondering if this could be a result of decreased natural killer cell activity? Has anyone encountered a reaction like this?
    Any thoughts would be so very appreciated : )
