Syntrion Product Discussion - Continued
These medicines are made from metabolites harvested from a Candida specie.
The tablet form of the medicine is called SyRegule, and the lotion form is
called SyFungin. These remedies are for eliminating fungal infection of
the skin or systemic fungal infections. Unlike the SanPharma medicine
Candida, which has no direct anti-fungal effects, but instead regulates the
terrain and reduces immunological overload, the Syntrion medicines actually have
an anti-fungal effect. This is noticeable as the induction of true
Herxheimer reactions in patients with a moderate to high level of fungal
SyFungin, as the name suggests, is for skin fungal infections. We have
found it to be effective in all sorts of fungal skin rashes, such as athlete's
foot. In Germany, tests have shown it to be effective in athlete's foot,
diaper rash and other minor skin fungal infections. It is also effective
in nail-bed fungal infections, but topical use only is not adequate, as shown by
a return of the toe-nail fungus when the lotion is discontinued.
The tablets are named for their ability to regulate the fungal terrain in a
gut dysbiosis. These have been used successfully in Germany for irritable
bowel syndrome and gut mucosal irritations.
We have found it more effective to use both the tablets and the lotion
together. However, this combination is powerful enough in effect that it
can be provoking in nature. Usually, SyRegule/SyFungin will not be
provoking if the patient is first prepared with SyAllgen, SyCircue, or SyImmune,
and drainage is added to the program.
A Herxheimer reaction refers to the malaise that results from the immune
system's reaction to breakdown products of microbes that are being destroyed
through the action of a medicine. These microbial products (and here we
are referring to the pathogenic microbe, not the microbes from which the remedy
is produced) will themselves cause a cytokine response to be initiated. This
cytokine response can result in inflammation and even fever. Thus, even
though the Syntrion remedies are all anti-inflammatory in nature, if they cause
the destruction of a heavy enough load of microbes, or if they cause enough
serious toxins to be released from the matrix, the result can be an increase of
the inflammatory response in the patient. The severity of this cytokine
response depends on:
- the degree of encumbrance of the matrix.
- the number of unregulated pro-inflammatory influences in the patient's
physiology including omega 3 to omega 6 levels in the cell membranes,
homocysteine and insulin levels, anti-oxidant status, status of the liver
detoxification and whether the gut is in a eubiotic or dysbiotic state.
- whether appropriate Pekana drainage medicines have been included in the
- whether the Syntrion remedies have been used in the appropriate sequence.
Usually, any problems with Herxheimer reactions will pass within several
and the patient will be better for having the microbial load
removed. If the reaction does not subside overnight, or if it is too
severe for the comfort level of the patient, then either:
- add or change drainage remedies used
- reduce frequency of administration of the provoking medicine, switching
initially to the use of just the tablets, or
- stop the potentially provoking medicine, and switch to one of the
preparatory remedies. In the case of an overly exuberant reaction to
SyRegule/SyFungin, the preparatory remedies would be SyAllgen or SyCircue.
A Herxheimer reaction is different than a "download". A download is
release of toxic products from the matrix, and can always be
managed by selecting appropriate Pekana medicines or adjusting their
dosage. A Herxheimer reaction relates to the release of toxic microbial
products caused by the destruction of a microbe that has been infecting the
The most common drainage medicines used with SyRegule/SyFungin are Mucan and
Supren, closely followed by Psy-Stabil. There seems to be a close
relationship between adrenal stress, sympathetic nervous system overdrive, and
chronic fungal infection. For this reason, a true eradication of chronic
fungal infection can require attention to biochemical neurotransmitter
abnormalities and psycho-social factors creating undue anxiety and
disproportionate existential hopelessness.
Patients that do not tolerate the SyRegule/SyFungin, or who are overly
distressed by Herxheimer reactions, should stop these medicines and use the
SyAllgen instead (or possibly SyCircue) for 2 to 6 weeks to prepare them for the
changes induced by breaking up of the fungal terrain.
One interesting fact to ponder is that fungal infections avoid destruction by
the immune system by producing chemicals that induce a TH2 upregulation.
In other words, they induce an allergic state in order to downregulate the
immune response that would kill them. Any time that an allergic patient is
treated with good drainage medicines and avoidance of food allergens and
allergy-reducing flavenoids, if you do not see good clinical change within 1
month, this should be taken as circumstantial evidence of fungal
infection. These patients will need to be treated with a combination of
SyAllgen and SyRegule/SyFungin in order to defeat this strategy whereby the
fungal infection evades the immune response. Syntrion is currently
conducting studies to see to what extent this synergy is measurable.
Most patients who have chronic illness have some degree of fungal overgrowth
as a component of their systemic load of toxicity and infection. SyRegule
and SyFungin offer another tool in clearing up this factor of contributory
SEQUENCING AND COMBINING SYNTRION REMEDIES
As discussed above, certain of the Syntrion remedies are best used initially,
and the others later. The better the patient's overall state of health,
the more you can just select whatever remedy fits the symptom picture, and it
will work well without adverse effects. However, for patients with a
heavily burdened terrain, it is best to start with SyAllgen or SyCircue, and
when these have initiated improvement, you can then go after the load of
infection with SyImmune or SyRegule/SyFungin.
SyAllgen tends to combine well with SyImmune or SyRegule. We have not
yet seen cases where other combinations tested as being appropriate using
kinesiology or electrodermal screening to make that determination.
While there will undoubtedly be cases where either the tablets or the lotion
work well alone, they generally are used in combination. If only one form
is used, it is much more common to use the lotion only versus the tablet
only. When testing these medicines for effectiveness by kinesiology or
electrodermal screening, it is not uncommon to see neither the tablets nor the
lotion being effective, but the combination of the two testing as effective when
The applications of these remedies discussed in this article are based on
initial impressions from the medicines given to relatively small populations of
patients. The early results and feedback, as well as re-exam on follow-up
appointments are sufficient to cause great excitement. What we do not yet know
are the fine points about remedies combinations with each other, with SanPharma
and with PEKANA remedies. We are still actively discovering the subtleties that
come with years of experience with a set of remedies. For that reason, please
keep an open mind that our findings may change to some extent, and know that we
will continue to publish updates about the practical aspects of working with the
Technical and hard scientific information about specific effects being
observed in the cell line experiments will continue to be published in the USA
by BioResource. The small pilot studies in Germany are leading to larger studies
as various clinics are understanding the potential that these medicines have,
and subjecting the Syntrion remedies to scrutiny on larger groups of
Meanwhile, we have already experienced enhanced clinical success, and so we
offer our initial impressions to you.
