Yeast Syndrome

I recently stumbled upon your web page about YEAST SYNDROME during a very upsetting time I am having with doctors in my area here in KY. I have been bounced from doctor to doctor in the past two years. I have been twice diagnosed with panic attacks and depression and endlessly sedated by drug after drug. I can't even explain my anger that nothing is helping. I recently went to a new family physician, who discovered what seems to be a yeast infection in my ears, as I had been complaining of severe inner ear pain, vertigo, and dizziness. Every doctor has a different answer, but none a solution. She immediatly put me on ANTIBIODICS. Ridiculous, I know, being that I have yeast coming out the ears (literally). I fit almost every single symptom of yeast syndrome. I am seeing an "Herbalist" in my hometown who has put me on several herbs for the treatment of yeast abundance, such as acidophilus and something called Candida. I still am very frightened and have no relief. I have a rare platelette disorder in which my platelets double again and again, without effecting any other blood cells. It mimics cancer. Can this be related?

"Yeast syndrome" is a misnomer. It should be called "Dental Amalgam Mercury Toxicity in a Person Sensitive to Heavy Metals Causing Transitory Leaky Gut Syndrome Followed by Gut Wall Infection and Subsequent Severe Dysbiosis and Generalized Acidity with Resulting Multiple Bizarre Symptoms Including Fatigue." What do you think my chances are of getting people to make this nomenclature change?

Anyway, read this:
