"My current theory is that the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will kill the fungus; but the roots are still dying within the walls of the intestines and probably other organs/tissues. This keeps the intestinal wall permeable, until it can heal over. That still presents the leaky gut syndrome for a while; even though the source of the problem is dead. The daily maintenance of Miracle-Mineral-Supplement will keep other fungi or bad bacteria from infiltrating the newly opened spaces. It will also keep down infection and inflammation."
