Healthy diet leads to man suffering mercury toxicity

A man sought doctors advice when he had a sudden weight gain and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He regained some energy but his skin was dull and he was losing hair. He then suffered severe abdominal bloating. He was misdiagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome because nothing could really be found. He then sought alternative treatment and was misdiagnosed with parasites and a systemic yeast infection. Treatment showed some improvement which was again followed by deterioration. He discovered that candida yeast infections can be related to mercury toxicity and he requested tests which finally proved he had a very high level of mercury toxicity. He acquired mercury toxicity from consuming tinned tuna up to five times a week for years. The mercury may well have also triggered his thyroid problem.
