I agree that supplements, icluding Probiotics won’t do any damage if they are taken during the first phase of a fungal elimination program. What I am absolutely sure is candida won’t leave terrain even if you take the highest dose of Probiotic available and Immune Boosters. The intestinal colonization of candida albicans isn’t displaced by bacterias. Candida survive and colonize in the presence of bacteria since we are born. They share space in our mucus membranes where there is a degree of antagonism between them.
If I were to take Probiotics, I will do it at a time when candida colonization be reduced. Again, as I said before, if you have enough money to spend, they won’t do any damage if you take them all the time and may offer some help to speed the recover.
B. Subtilis and B. Laterosporus are the TWO main pharmaceutical grade probiotic offering antifungal activity. B. Subtilis is the base of Threelac. I have spend hundreds buying both and taken them as part of an anticandida treatment with strict diet and antifungals. High amount of them, plus Dr.Ohhira Probiotic 12 Plus didn’t correct my yeast overgrowth. I have taken many probiotic brands, any of them justified the money I spent. It is thought that 4 ounces of human fecal matter has around 4500 billions of bacterias divided in more than 400 species. I have taken this amount several times, rectal and orally. My candidiasis continued its party inside my colon.
I don’t find the way bacteria can eliminate a fungal growth, neither logically nor practically using my body as a “guinea pig”.
