Hi Onwards - the sores in the nose were there before i began nutritional balancing. I am pretty sure they are bacterial because when i put Kenacomb cream in my nose, (contains triamcinolone, acetonide, neomycin, gramicidin,nystatin) they go away straight away. I had these same sores when i was extremely stressed about 10 years ago. They did eventually go away but they are back with a vengeance in the last two years since all of the stress. The gum infection is new but i did read that high doses of Cat's claw can cause bleeding gums. I am taking three days off Cat's claw and my other supplements due to feeling like i was going to explode in an overstimulated way. From blood tests they have found i have some chronic infection based on my blood cell count but i am yet to find a doctor that will take it more seriously. I also know that when i take grapefruit seed extract for a week or so i get severe die-off (vomiting all night etc). I have done a parasite cleanse every year but from reading your posts probably not for long enough. I usually use this product http://www.vitalityandwellness.com.au/Nutritional-Supplements/intestaclear
Not sure if it is strong enough but my "Doctor's Data" stool test came back as clear as far as eggs, and dysbiotic org. etc. But as you said, stool tests can't get a lot of false negatives.
Overall - i think my issue is candida - bacterial and fungal.
