I had my Amalgams removed on Juky 23, 2014. I had been battling Candida for over a year and have studied the connection between mercury and candida. interestingly enough, about two days after removing my Amalgams I had a candida flare up, despite being consistent with the strict anti candida diet, probiotics and anti-fungals. Ive read that it is normal to have a spike in symptoms post removal and that this is only temporary. Im wondering now what my next step should be. I have a naturopath who advises IV chelation, but I know how controversial it is. Some swear by IV chelation and have had great success, others say it is dangerous and too risky. Some say let the body chelate on its own. Im leaning towards trusting my doctor but wanted to know what others have experienced.
