C Reactive Protein

C Reactive Protein

For the past year, my inflammation markers have been off the charts. Can’t seem to get them down and now my rheumatologist is scared. Anyone else have a c reactive protein of 38. I know a normal number would be under 3, and 10 being an indicator of a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack.

Find an integrative medicine physician to give you EDTA treatments to remove heavy metals from your system. Probiotics (good bacteria) will secrete toxins that kill nasty bacteria as well as candida in your gut. Kefir and Chobani yogurt are good sources of probiotics. You can also take prebiotics (fiber, such as psyllium) as a food source for the probiotics.

My numbers are off the chart all the time. I’ve been as high as 48. I just had toxic testing, and a comprehensive stool testing done. My toxin load test, showed lead, mercury, cadmium, and aluminum were at the top end of the scale, and my stool test showed severe intestinal candida, along with other gut issues. Just those 2 sets of tests alone are 100% the cause of the high inflammation. Along with that, I have severe heart disease, Lupus, APS, multiple allergies to pharmaceuticals, various foods, and some birds, trees, plants etc… Presently I’m addressing the Candida, which will take years to get under control, and the toxins, I’m doing daily chelation drops, to help lessen the load. I suspect, my CRP readings will never be close to low, but I can try to take some of the burden off, by doing what I can with supplements, good diet and exercise! There are multiple reasons for a high cRP reading, and some can be addressed, but others, not so much. Get a good Doctor that’s willing to get to the root of your inflammation, and if they refuse, hire a private natural path who is licensed to order tests etc, and get your answers that way. All the best to you.
