It can occur in people with a compromised immune system, so if you happen to have AIDS or are taking medication for an auto-immune disease, it’s not safe. In those sort of instances, I’d check to see if bacterial probiotics could be an issue too. Your immune system has to regulate all the microbes in your gut, whether they’re “friendly” or not.
