“I’ve always recommended such extreme amounts of the probiotics combined with prebiotics, minus foods for the Candida.”
Prebiotics should be introduced once the good bacteria outnumbers the candida. Candida is highly capable of utilizing prebiotics and if the “fungal” candida outnumbers the good bacteria this will be counter productive. Same goes for probiotics. Most good candida programs will recommend probiotics towards the end of the program–its more effective that way.
Agree. Beneficial flora has to be restored to keep candida from going pathogeneic, but for someone who has a gut that is dominated by fungal candida with little good flora– probiotics will just get wiped out by the fungal candida without it even having a chance to do anything. All you get in between is a immune response filled with bad symptoms. For people that do have more fungal candida than beneficial flora the undecenoic acid(sf722) seems to be better approach than probiotics(converting the fungal candida to its less pathogenic form).
Timing with probiotics/prebiotics can be very tricky and the individual has to gauge the proper timing depending on their own reactions/level of their candida.
