Well, a probiotic will certainly help you, but I really don’t believe that a probiotic will cure your yeast infection as such. It can certainly help to repopulate your digestive system and help to reduce the levels of poor bacteria. But once a yeast infection really takes hold in the body, it’s quite difficult to eradicate it by just relying on a probiotic alone.
And in fact in America in 2010 when they enforced GMP or good manufacturing procedures, they discovered that over half the probiotics that were being purchased by people were useless, absolutely therapeutically useless. They had poor strains and hardly any viability at all. So be very careful what type of dietary supplements you buy because there are lots of product out there that are not very viable.
As I mentioned, once Candida becomes widespread, it becomes more difficult to eradicate, probably like a weed in a garden will become more difficult to eradicate when it really takes foothold. So the whole idea is to try and get in before it becomes systemic or too bad. A better approach would be to use an enzyme and probiotic combination; that will give you a better effect than just a probiotic.
If you keep an eye on yeastinfection.org and CandidaCrusher.com, you will soon discover that I’ve developed my own Candida Crusher products with very high quality viability and very specific enzyme probiotic formula which I’m developing right now which will be available soon, so you’ll be able to purchase that very soon with the quality product I have in mind.
So supplements are certainly very, very handy and essential in chronic cases, but most of your work really needs to come from lifestyle and diet. Eighty percent of what I like patients to do is think about their lifestyle and twenty percent about supplementation. I’m not interested in people who are just interested in taking supplements, try to get rid of symptoms, it’s not going to work. You need to address the root causes, look particularly at your lifestyle and diet and supplementation to give you the best effects when it comes to crushing Candida.
So I hope that answers your question. Thank you, Bill.
