I’m aware that we need candida. I’m just trying to rid my body of the bad bacterial form of it. I have the fungal kind and I need the candida in my body to change back to the healthy yeast kind. The root of my problem is thrush. My doc is simply frustrated w/ not being able to fully cure my thrush. He’s tried everything he knows. So I’m on my own now. He will prescribed nystatin to me forever but I’m sick of that banana sugary crap. Doc says I have some thrush left in my system that can’t be reached. So I’m about to try Oxy powder!
