I was also prescribed nystatin to try and prevent a yeast infection…anyone have any other advise for what to do when you HAVE to take antibiotics? I am already drinking Kiefer milk, eating lots or organic plain yogurt, and taking ultimate flora 50 billion count probiotic…What else can I do? Should I go heavy on the anti-fungals as well? Thanks for all the help! -Rose
That’s a tough break, but you won’t be the first to go on an antibiotic while treating a Candida infestation.
My suggestion is to try and keep the beneficial bacteria count as high as possible even though the antibiotic will be killing the good right along with the bad. I would double the probiotic to two a day; one in the morning at least an hour before breakfast and the other one should be taken at night, at least two hours after your last food.
Remain strictly on the Candida diet during this time. If you are eating any red meat at all, stop at once; the reason being that unless you are eating organically grown beef every time you have beef, then you are adding more antibiotics to your body with each meal containing beef, chicken, or pork. Eat only organic eggs for most of your protein source, and if you can find it, purchase only organically raised chicken during the ten days you’re on the antibiotic.
Candida is a difficult fight during an antibiotic treatment, but hopefully you can come through it without too much trouble by doing what I’ve suggested.
Please keep us posted.
