gut wall damage

What exactly is a gut wall infection? I think I have one. Can a person use isopathic remedies while he or she detoxing heavy metals? Also when I jump on the rebounder to try to speed up the toxin removal, I get that normal?

Several things provoke gut wall infections in people who are susceptible. Chief among these are heavy metal overload, usually mercury, also long term use of antibiotics, prolonged stress from which a person cannot escape, copious consumption of coffee, chronic consumption of foods to which a person is intolerant, probably smoking cigarettes, and a few other things. What we think happens is the provocation of tiny holes in the gut wall (leaky gut) through which micro-organisms pass setting up a chronic infection of the gut wall. This disables the immune system (most of which is embedded in the gut wall) and causes dysbiosis from which the symptom come: bloating, loose stool, constipation, etc. Read this: and you will understand more. The isopathics should be used for clearing this up only after metal removal and treatment is complete. As to the rebounder, anything which speeds the removal of toxins makes a person temporarily ill as the toxins exit the body.

Have you heard of a product by Global Health Trax called Three-Lac? If so, what is your opinion of using this to control yeast while I dump the toxins? Also, is there anything safe I can use to soothe the intestinal lining?

I am not familiar with that product. If the gut wall in inflamed due to a chronic infection, it will not stop complaining to you until the offending agent is removed and the infection is treated with the SanPharma Protocol. Most people I have seen with this condition have devised a compensatory program which typically includes supplements, psyllium powder, herbs, digestive enzymes, etc. The idea behind all that is to achieve digestion, even if the gut itself is not going to do the job on its own. I do not have favorite preparations to achieve all this. My intervention happens in the process of clearing all this up and making the compensatory program unnecessary.

Well, I am eating very healthy, organics almost entirely. I do not smoke or drink coffee. I do have some stress, but I try to manage it. So that leaves the mercury that was improperly removed from my mouth . I've heard it is very hard to get rid of it if it gets into deep tissues. We also are dealing with a chronic mold problem at our home...maybe that could be adding to the problem. In your opinion is DMSA better for this metal removal than herbs?

DMSA is a chelating agent. It is very specific for what it does. I do not know of herbs which are chelators. There are binding agents in chlorella which is therefore used in conjunction with chelators to prevent reabsorption of chelated metal complexes excreted by the liver ino the small intestine.
