I have explained it several times.
First, it has been said by the leaders Drs researching this syndrome. Did you read the article I posted ?? If you don’t know, the autor is Dr. Truss, the man who DISCOVERED this syndrome and dedicated all his life to study it. Dr. Trowbridge, Dr. Galland, all of them have said the infection is in the colon.
It has explanations and easy to understand, so who is blind is because he/she wants to be !!
The small bowel is sterile by nature. It is normal that be almost sterile because the body has mechanisms to keep it in this way. It isn’t intended to dispose food. Microbies don’t growth there and candida isn’t an exception.
The colon is HOME of the friendly flora. It is there where the flora lives. When you take antibiotics, the disruption occurs there. Candida has a chance to gain terrain. Over the days or weeks, your flora recover, BUT candida WON’T be displaced by it. Candida can live perfectly with the flora one time it has colonized. It doesn’t mean you DON’T have your own bacterial flora.
The colon is the place where the temporary imbalance occur. It is the place where putrefaction, decomposition, and fermentation take place. It is there where the monster which is poisoning your body lives. Take a chance an read the article.
