I am a 62 year old female. I have chronic systemic candidiasis, herpes I and II, and thus a weakened immune system due to a doctor who in 1986 prescribed Tetracycline - 500 mg per day for my complexion and never stopped renewing the prescriptions for 8 years. It badly compromised my entire immune system. I have been diagnosed in the past with numerous food allergies.
I am having no difficulty swallowing. I might add that I breathe through my mouth a lot, especially at night and living in Phoenix, AZ it is extremely dry. I wake up with my mouth like sandpaper each morning. I have a mild sore throat that comes and goes and is mainly in the center of the throat and the left.
The only prescription drugs I take on a regular basis are: Armour Thyroid - 90 mg per day, Skelaxin 800 mg - 1 tablet 4 times a day, Bio-identical hormones 2 times a day and Zomig, 2.5 mg as needed only. I take supplements as well: Magnesium, L-Lysine, Potassium, Kava Kava, Meltatonin, 5-HTP, Chondr-Flex (glucosamine and condroitin), and amino acid powder 2 x per day due to a problem back in February where my red cell count was very low.
Is there anything else you need to know?
