As you may know, The Protocol on the forum specifically addresses this issue.
In short; according to the protocol, the detox or cleanse comes first which immediately starts destroying the Candida, the diet second, antifungals third, and the vitamins, herbs and supplements fourth. Next the homemade kefir or yogurt is added which contains beneficial bacteria, then the commercial probiotics containing more beneficial bacteria are added last because, by this time a significant number of Candida will have been eliminated as many members can attest to because of the die-off symptoms. By this time, each of the five steps has attributed to the decrease of the population of the Candida. Of course, as the members have discovered, the commercial probiotics will kill off more of the infestation simply because the bacteria are slowly beginning to build a negative environment for the Candida infestation.
In my experience as well as that of others, the probiotics do not have to wait until the “biggest amount of colonies are gone” in order to help in the elimination as it often causes severe die-off.
