Can mercury fillings affect the chances of you treating Candida overgrowth?

I’ve been suffering from a Candida overgrowth for about 12 years now. I have tried several Candida diets and I take vitamin supplements all the time. Although I sometimes experience a number of the die-off symptoms (depending on how strict I am with the diet), but in general, I have not seen a significant decrease the my Candida symptoms, and I know that it is still here because of the horrible rash I have on my face and arms and sometimes my legs. Also my body keeps shedding skin continually. I’ve read about a mercury toxicity making it impossible to cure Candida, and since I have about eight old mercury fillings in my teeth, I’m now wondering if this my problem as well. Why is the treatment not working for me after so many years of trying everything, or is it as simply as my mercury filling being the cause of a lack of cure?

Theories are looking at the possibility that both iron and copper in addition to mercury toxicity can contribute to Candida overgrowth problems as well as stalling the progress of a Candida elimination treatment.

Supplements called DMSA (Dimercaptosuccinic Acid) and DMPS (2, 3-Dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid) both can help to eliminate or chelate or remove metals from the body such as mercury.

It has also been shown in research studies that probiotics and properly fermented foods such as kefir and sauerkraut can eliminate mercury as well by changing the mercury toxins into a form which the body can process and eliminate much easier than pure mercury.

A ‘clean’ healthy diet and the nutrients which it supplies can help reduce the levels of mercury in the human body. A good Candida diet is an example of a clean and healthy diet.
