Many of the symptoms people are expressing today come from digestive issues and the Western Diet – meaning, yeast overgrowth. If you are unfamiliar with yeast overgrowth, or candida related complex,  you can read this article written by Carolyn Dean that describes its causes and effects:

Also, we advise people to take the Yeast Overgrowth Questionnaire to determine if your symptoms are magnesium deficiency combined with a proliferation of yeast toxins:

If your test results for candida are in the medium to high range then Dr. Dean recommends using a purge drink protocol of bentonite clay, psyllium husk, and caprylic acid with an effective candida diet [low carbohydrate diet] to support healing and detoxification. The ideal diet for candida related complex recovery reduces or eliminates hard-to-digest foods that stress the digestive system as well as allergens and toxins that suppress the immune and nervous systems.
