    I have been posting about this extraordinary Prebiotic lately.

    I have seen people aren’t too interested. Lactulose may be the final tool to normalize the gut flora and to prevent candida colonization or re-infection.

    Mycological aspects of gastrointestinal microflora.

    Abstract
    There are two aspects about the presence of Candida in the human orointestinal tract: (i) it is a part of normal human flora and (ii) it is a risk factor for immunocompromised patients. The orointestinal tract can be considered a reservoir for Candida species, several of which are from the oral cavity, stomach, duodenal juice and faeces. Their germ counts in normal small and large bowel do not exceed 10(4) cfu/ml resp.g. The input of Candida to a well-developed faecal flora system under continuous flow culture conditions did not lead to a multiplication of the yeast. The take in of faecal flora into a Candida continuous flow culture diminish Candida germ counts. If, however, the faecal flora was destroyed, e.g. by antibiotics, we found the yeasts multiplying, with the formation of germ tubes and mycelial structures. Colonization by Candida has to be seen as a starting-point of the development of subsequent candidosis in immunosuppressed or intensive care patients. The best protection against Candida colonization in the gut is the existence of a normal bacterial flora. Lactulose, which promotes the Gram-positive potential of faecal flora, may protect indirectly by supporting the indigenous flora.

    Thanks Jorge, but this seems like alot of doctors talk, in plain speak how would you take Lactulose, where do you find it, and how big dosage do you recommend?

    As a summary, it says
    -Candida is part of normal human gut flora
    -Only when there is a disturbance to the gut flora does candida become out of control, eg antibiotics that kill all (good and bad) bacteria
    -Either this or another factor will weaken your immune system, and allow candida to overproduce and cause candidiasis
    -Probiotics are essential to combat this
    -Lactulose is very beneficial to promote healthy bowel colonisation, and keep candida numbers in check.

    My thoughts is that you will need to reduce your candida numbers sufficiently to give beneficial flora the chance to repopulate (diet, supplements, enemas).

    Great post dvjorge, something I will no doubt use in my future treatment.

    Talking of lactulose – isn’t it given to patients for SIBO testing? I’m actually having a test this month.

    Jorge – I read somewhere you have a website. If so, can you post a link?

    You probably are correct. However, the million dollar question is if rising the Lactos and Bifidos in the colon will displace candida colonies. LAB are those that protects us against candida colonization. It may be that taking lactulose increase these bacterial population and candida has to package and leave the intestines.

    Anyway, there is nothing better I have found to recover the intestinal balance after an anticandida protocol than lactulose.

    Sorry, I don’t have website or blog. I only post on candida forums.

    I realized that after I posted. You had stated you read a lot of blogs and websites and I misread. Sorry about that. You are very knowledgable and I appreciate your input and enjoy your informative posts.

    I saw your post, but I am not a MD. Google Lactulose and you will find information about dosage and availability in your country.

    Read this PDF about Bifidobacterium and its importance as part of the intestinal microbiota.

    I don’t seem to have any problem with Lactulose. I’m taking 1 tsp AM & PM and I may increase that to bowel tolerance. I also take a lot of probiotics and fermented foods.
