As far as the Ibuprofen is concerned;
I have Candida, and I’ve been taking Ibuprofen on a fairly regular basis since I read a report about some experiments done at the Department of Microbiology, Porto School of Medicine, University of Porto in 1999. The paper was written by Dr C. Pina-Vaz.
His report said that, in tests, Ibuprofen exhibited antimicrobial activity against Candida albicans strains. The tests they did indicated that the killing the Candida cells was a result of direct damage to the cytoplasmic membrane. To shorten the story, in the end the statement was that there was an advantage in making use of the drug’s antifungal as well as the anti-inflammatory properties.
Why not try it, I did, and am still using it.
