What about high doses of vitamins and minerals in the treatment of autism? Vitamin B-6 neutralizes one of the yeast chemicals and this yeast chemical takes the place of magnesium at important sites in the body.
The neutralization of this chemical may explain why vitamin B-6 and magnesium are sometimes helpful. However, it is much better to clear out the yeast, so that the chemical is no longer made rather than to try to neutralize it. There are many other yeast chemicals which are not affected by vitamin B-6 and magnesium.
Parents of children with austim who continue the high doses of vitamins and minerals and then try to add nystatin often find that nystatin is not helpful. It’s suspected that one of the vitamins, perhaps vitamin B-6, binds to nystatin, making it ineffective. It’s preferable for parents not to use the high doses of vitamins and minerals while giving nystatin.
Acidophilus helps yeast grow. Acidophilus clears out another bad microorganism, Clostridia, but acidophilus does nothing for yeast. Acidophilus makes an anti-bacterial chemical. Acidophilus should only be used short-term, not long-term. A major cause of bacterial problems in the gut come from taking antibiotics.
How does one avoid giving antibiotics to children with autism? Children who do not have yeast are much more resistant to infections. Back in the days before high tech, researchers asked much simpler questions. They asked whether Candida and tuberculosis like each other and if they grow better together. The answer was yes. Candida’s capsule helps tuberculosis to grow.
This kind of experiment has been done with other infectious microorganisms and yeast helps other bad microorganisms to grow. Candida helps the microorganisms at the back of the mouth to grow and to grow back after antibiotics. The Candida helping the bad microorganisms is why children get ear infection after ear infection.
