Raster – thank you for your advice and good luck with your wedding! I am worried BECAUSE I’m no longer seeing candida in my stools – keep thinking it’s been too quick for all the naughty rooty ones to have left already – what do you think? I am still doing the anti-fungals hard though – lots of different types each day – so maybe I just shocked them so much they all left at the same time.
Able – here are the details of my probiotic. It is Lambers Probioguard with the ingredients as follows: 4.5 billion live bacteria (4.5 x 109 CFU) Lactobacillus acidophilus, LA-5 Bifidobacterium, BB-12 Streptococcus thermophilus, STY-31 Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus, LBY-27.
I didn’t mean to stop taking it when I began the diet, but I was taking so many other tablets each day that they just got sidelined and then when I read what I did about not taking them for a bit I decided to leave it. I have started again now. I know I need to work up to more than 9 billion a day, but I’m concerned I can’t afford it… This diet has already cost me a fortune with all the various supplements and special foods and I earn only £350 – £400 a month. I just don’t think I can afford to buy a super high strength one at £30 a pop each month. Is there a cheap but good brand you could recommend for the UK? Or would it be better to buy a super high one to use for a week (eg Biocare’s seven day sachet replenish programme) and then go to a lower dose after that?
With regards to the Activia – I looked on the back of every yoghurt pot before making my choice and the Activia I have bought contains 6 grams of sugar per 4 ounces. I am in the UK, so perhaps you and I are referring to different brands, or perhaps the UK Activia is the same company but with different ingredients to the US brand? I couldn’t find anything other than goat yoghurt with a lower sugar content than the one I bought…
