"The most toxic entity in the body is candida or
yeast. It is very xenobiotic. When the liver is healthy it will clear
these mycotoxins through the urine. Therefore, we can test the urine
for toxins to see how the liver is functioning. Research from
Australia has shown a toxin called CFSUM-1 is found in the urine of
CFS patients. Since then many other toxins have been found, and they
cause PAIN. The toxins produced by candidiasis are Tartaric Acid and
Arabinose. Cheney described two boys diagnoses as autistic. When their
urine was tested they had high levels of Tartaric Acid and Arabinose.
Both boys had been on repeated antibiotics for recurring ear
infections and had not been autistic until recently. They were about
six years old. Tartaric Acid looks like Malic Acid and poisons cells
by interferring with the Krebs Cycle. Arabinose poisons the brain.
When the two boys were treated with nystatin for candidiasis they both
recovered and were no longer autistic."
