Re: [IPk] Re: solutions for better health



Pat,
Aisling has a point, but to look at a bigger picture in case you are deficient
in B5 or something might be advisable - so yes, a nutritional therapist would
tell you. (I'd forgotten I was still on the candida website as a therapist
actually until I read Aisling's letter to you!)
I usually take a peek at people's eyes with my Iris torch to give me a better
idea of Candida toxicity. Where do you live? I could probably recommend a
colleague near you if you like?
