Interesting you would talk about amalgams. My husband has had his Amalgams removed and so have I. We are very familiar with heavy metal poisoning and the chronic candida that comes along with heavy metal toxins in the system. My husband has taken Alpha Lipoic acid which chelates heavy metals. He also eats an enomous amount of cilantro which also chelates. He takes high doses of vitamins, and also minerals. Still there has been no relief for either one of us. This has been such a struggle. I even started acidophilis vaginally with very little relief, a few day of no itching and now the itching is back as is the smell, and no intimacy with my husband in a long time, so we are not passing the infection back and forth, we just both continue to itch.
