Hi, wondering if anyone could help, I not long ago went through large amounts of stress and ended up with nausea and indegestion every time I ate something. I was prescribed omeperozle and symptoms remained the same and didn’t go. Eventually symptoms eased and went away only for me to be plagued with UTI symptoms. Clear urine culture everytime but chronic symptoms of cystitis. Blood tests were fine and vaginal swabs were fine. Could this be candida over growth? As ive never had bladder problems. Only since I started having indegestion with constipation. I notice bananas make me feel much worse too?
Hope someone can help. Thank youFebruary 13, 2018 at 10:58 am #175136
PPIs like omeperozle lower your stomach acid, but that’s often just papering over the cracks. Most people would be better served by improving their digestion -things like probiotics, digestive enzymes, dietary changes etc. PPIs are one of the causes of Candida overgrowth and other types of gut dysbiosis.February 13, 2018 at 11:13 am #175138
Oh that really makes sense.
I also noticed when I took off my nail varnish on my toes I had toe nail fungus om my big toe ( sorry for tmi ) when I googled it yeast overgrowth popped up.
I thought how weird.
Maybe I should try the diet.
Do anyone know if yeast raiders are okay ? From Holland and Barretts. I will also buy bioglan probitoics 50billion.
Not sure if them two were helpFebruary 13, 2018 at 11:15 am #175139
50bn sounds like a good probiotic. Not sure about yeast raiders – do you have an ingredient list?February 13, 2018 at 11:17 am #175140
Your skin has a microbiome, just like your gut does. The wrong diet and lifestyle choices can disturb your skin flora too. That’s why intestinal Candida can often co-exist with things like toenail fungus.February 13, 2018 at 11:18 am #175141
Hey yes here you go …
High strength Acidophilus plus Herbs, Vitamins & MineralsWith 40mg Lactobacillus Acidophilus per 5 capsulesAlso with Vitamin C, Biotin, Zinc & Selenium
Holland & Barrett Yeast Raiders Capsules contain high potency acidophilus PLUS herbs, vitamins and minerals. With vitamin C, biotin, zinc, selenium and barberry (Berberis vulgaris), these high strength acidophilus capsules are a naturally inspired rapid release food supplement.
Or would I be better off buying separate turmeric capsules etc?February 13, 2018 at 11:20 am #175142

Here’s the problem with things like that Yeast Raiders supplement. They often contain lots of really good ingredients, but at really low doses. And they’re often much more expensive than buying the individual components.
In this case, there’s no point in paying for a small dose of Lactobacillus acidophilus in the Yeast Raiders, when you’re getting 40bn from your probiotic. Also, it doesn’t contain any of the natural antifungals that are usually recommended – grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, etc.February 13, 2018 at 11:22 am #175144
OK, so you’re only getting 2.4bn L. acidophilus from the Yeast Raiders.February 13, 2018 at 11:24 am #175146
Ahh okay understandable. What would you recommend I buy along with the probiotics?
I really haven’t got a clue what doses etc is recommended eitherFebruary 13, 2018 at 11:27 am #175147
Most people buy a couple of single dose antifungals to go with the probiotics. They are inexpensive compared to the combination supplements. Examples are grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, garlic, etc. Just make sure that you take them a couple of hours away from your probiotics each time.February 13, 2018 at 11:34 am #175148
Brilliant thank you. The only problem I have buying separate is that I struggle to take tablets 🙁 So I was hoping for something all in one. How about candaway supplements. They contain this ..
Typically per tablet
Cinnamon Bark (provided by 750mg extract)3750mg
Olive Leaf (provided by 180mg extract)810mg
Oregano (provided by 100mg extract)400mg
Fennel Seed (provided by 100mg extract)400mg
Would they be okay with my probiotics?
Thanks for helping me!February 13, 2018 at 11:41 am #175149

Consider adding turmeric to your diet to help control inflammation in addition to treating the yeast. If you’re coming back with no UTI and feeling the symptoms, it could also be bladder inflammation. It wont hurt 😉
