Anything higher than about 15 billion cfu per capsule should be fine (30+ billion per day). I don’t think probiotics alone will cure her infection, but I would have her bring it up with her doctor. One story you should google is that probiotics might become the future antibiotic because antibiotics are becoming increasingly less effective in the long term. Remember probiotics are the opposite of antibiotics.
Probiotics likely won’t be a quick fix, whereas the antibiotics could be a quick fix.
Another thing to think about: why does she have this lung issue? Well, the lungs are the dumping grounds of the body and thus they could be overloaded with toxins. What is causing the toxins to go to her lungs? Could be dead candida, other bacteria, parasites, etc. Ask the doctor what is causing this to happen?
