I think the research supports this too. A bunch of studies have demonstrated marked reductions in candida colonies after probiotic therapy. Nobody’s suggesting this alone provides a cure, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t make use of a tool that provides proven benefits early on. Maybe you don’t want to chuck $100/month at commercial probiotics, but are things really that black and white? Fermented foods are readily available or easily made and not all supplements are expensive or need to be used excessively for results.
