As s. mentioned, PEG (Polyethylene Glycol) strips biofilms and has worked well in my experience.
Its very cheap, I have used the brand Miralax as well as others.
wow…when I googled it, there are lots of posts asking if miralax caused the candida, but nothing to say its good for biofilms.
Can you link me any info?
I would LOVE if this was a game-changer.
I want to give this to my son (12) who has taken it before for constipation (during antibiotic use-go figure!) and if it works for candida, heck, we will all take it!
Miralax is just an example, there are many brands including PED used for prep colonoscopies (Unfortunately I’m very familiar with the process!)
Use with caution as it can increase die-off.
Pathogenic Gut Flora
Why does a total bowel irrigation with PEG, polyethylene glycol, make people with chronic diseases feel as good as if they had an antibiotic treatment (barring die off)? I think that the answer is that both disrupt and change the gut flora and in many cases disease symptoms are supported by an unhealthy gut flora/biofilms. In many cases, the antibiotic cannot have a lasting impact, because it is hard to kill bacteria in biofilms. PEG may actually clean out more of the biofilms, because it should also disrupt the polysaccharide matrix of the biofilms.
