It is an excellently prepared thread, surprised not many responded - perhaps due to the airline disaster.
I am still looking up some of the articles quoted. I have held this view for long - that systemic diseases partly derived from fungi in the unbalanced
ecosystem may cause great havoc in the near future.
As far as biofilms are considered, it is certainly a lead.
My sister for years believed that she was gluten-intolerant. Her IBS disappeared practically when avoiding gluten. However, this spring she reurtned
to Hungary for a visit and found she could eat local bread. Her theory was that North American wheat is heavily altered - it sounded fantastic until I
actually found a pop science article that said so. I'll dig that one out soon, it was months ago. I remember that not only GMO but selective breeding
as well as pesticides were pointed at, but the scientist clearly said avoid wheat products if you have a fungal disease.
Another thing to consider is that many fungal diseases are undiagnosed in many parts of the world as other things. I remember when I first got a
severel intestinal candida - I got depressed, my sex drive was zero, plus a host of neural problems. When I was free of the mercury fillings which
probably started the thing, along with heavy antibiotics, and I took antifungals one day per week, I had severe reactions such as nausea, dizziness,
disorientation (I was going about in the city where I grew up and I suddenly had no idea where I was), short-term memory troubles, fantastic but scary
dreams where mushrooms sometimes played a part.
Third, there are a host of modern clinical trials for remedies against fungal pathogens in humans. Curiously enough, Asian healing mushrooms are one
area of research. Reishi mushroom (Ganoderma spp) types are excellent for that. They compete with the fungus and regenerate the liver cells which are
otherwise damaged by aflatoxin, one of the metabolic products of candida and aspergillus, as well as by common aggressive antifungals.
Not Lufenuron though, that stuff is driven out by the intestinal system so it's safe to take even in serious cases, but it may not be enough. Large
doses of Vitamin C help but not by themselves.
Not every type of probiotic works in extreme cases, for me the Japanese brand Pearls was the best so far.
I tried home-fermenting some Asian drinks (tea mushroom), and they also helped though they gave me a cleaning too. My idea is that if you have had
such a disease, it is worth to replenish minerals, trace elements, selenium especially, but even potash and some cases iodine (oral fungus infections
can be treated externally by iodine unless you have hyperthyroid problems or allergic to iodine), as the fungus draws these metals out of your body,
and as a result, cramps may happen.
Some case histories suggest that fungi can get to the brain, and it is hard to get them out due to the blood-brain barrier. Lufenuron seems to wokr
with that too, but serious cases have to repeat it every once in a while.
Last, I tried electric treatment through the body (Rife methods) and it worked to some extent to decrease candida even in audible frequencies, this
you can cheaply try at home with a tone generator software and speaker chords of the old type.
An ad on the top of Rense says Is cancer a fungus? Well, this may be going too far, but there ar studies that show that cancer indeed sometimes goes
together with candida as does AIDS. So it could be a step in the right direction.
But fungi have changed all around the world in recent decades, this I feel intuitively, probably partly due to the changed environment of pesticides,
herbicides, fungicides, as well as the raised level of radioactivity. Also, I simply saw too many houseplants and fruits break out with fungi - a
cactus in my former house (where I suspect there was an Aspergillus infection in the adobe walls) I was pateiently grafting for 25 years suddenly gave
up the ghost. Then another one, then another one. All the plants I brought from that old house died one by one, no matter how diligently I cut them
back and changed their soil. This stufff was aggressive. And if it weren't for my Lufenuron cures last year, I would probably not be here writing
these lines but in the cemetery happily eaten by the fungus.
My 2 cents.
