The Good, The Bad,
& The Ugly
Probiotics for candida are perhaps the best
candida remedy available if you use the right one and have
killed enough candida to start with. After you get done reading
this article and those that accompany it, you will know
what are the best probiotics for candida.
Probiotics for candida are
absolutely necessary for the absorption of minerals,
vitamins, proteins, and fats within the body. They also
displace and kill bad bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. The specific
species that inhabit the small and large intestine also create
the right acidic or alkaline state for that area in the
intestine. They truly are our first line of defense against
foreign organisms within the body and make up 75% of our immune
Several years ago, Bernard Jensen, D.C., world-renowned
author, lecturer and teacher of natural health, said, "It is
an indisputable fact that illness, old age, and even death
itself are due to the accumulation of waste products (within
the body) ... to the inability of the body to replenish its
cellular structures and organs with fresh, vital
A study in Ireland came to this conclussion:
"The intestinal microflora is a positive health asset that
crucially influences the normal structural and functional
development of the mucosal immune system. The flora has a
collective metabolic activity equal to a virtual organ
within an organ … It follows that manipulation of the flora
to enhance the beneficial components represents a promising
therapeutic strategy." (O'Hara AM, Shanahan F 2006)
Researchers in the Mucosal Immunology Laboratory of
Massachusetts General Hospital for Children had this to
"Changed lifestyles and the increased use of antibiotics are
significant factors that affect the preservation of a healthy
intestinal microflora. The concept of probiotics is to restore
and maintain a microflora advantageous to the human body."
(Broekaert IJ, Walker WA 2006).
It is because these bacteria have been reduced to low
levels by prescription drugs or poor diets that make the
intestines more acidic so candida can grow out of control.
Once this happens it can be almost impossible to get your
bacterial levels back to normal and often takes years to
accomplish. Especially if the primary cause of the destruction
was from antibiotics.
Most people with candida realize that they need
a probitoic for candida to restore their health to normal so
they begin to take them at some point. But usually they do not
take near enough to do any good. They are missing trillions and
need to take large doses, not small doses numbering in the
millions or low billions. They need doses of 50 billion to 500
billion or more on a daily basis to do any good. Very few
probiotics for candida are that strong and some of those that
are are ineffective.
Most probiotics require that they be
refrigerated and are not heat stable. This suggests and in
studies has been proven, that many of these probiotics for
candida grow molds in the body. Molds are what antibiotics are
made from and antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria so this is
counter productive. Always look for a probiotic that is heat
stable and suggests that refrigeration is to be used to
maintain potency and not to keep it from spoiling.
Most people think that probiotics can restore
good bacterial levels to normal. Well.....I hate to be the
bearer of bad news but all conventionally manufactured
probiotics have the ability to repopulate stripped from them at
the time of manufacture.
Below is a chart of what happens to these
bacteria when you take them.
As you can see they die within two weeks or
less. However, while they are in your intestine they do improve
your health and immune function while killing candida. They
also act as a decoy of sorts so your bacteria that are
able to reproduce and colonize do so, and that is what your
trying to do, build these colonies. In the right
environment one bacteria can become billions in a short
time, the trick is, promoting that environment.
The only other way to repopulate the intestine
with good bacteria is by a fecal matter transplant from a healthy
donor with a complete bacterial profile. The other way
is from swallowing vaginal fluids like you are
passing through the birth canal and take colostrum with it.
And possibly fresh human breast milk after that.
I mentioned colostrum because when a baby first
suckles at its mothers breast it receives colostrum. This
colostrum stimulates the immune system and lines the intestinal
walls allowing the good bacteria present in the milk to attach.
Colostrum also kills foreign pathogens including candida.
Does the vaginal fluids, colostrum, and breast
milk always work? No it doesn't. I have worked with parents
whose babies and children are missing entire species of
bacteria. Even though they were born naturally and were/are
breast fed. These children are almost always more gassy
than others and have skin rashes as a result.
What Do You Do If
You Can't Get a Fecal Matter Transplant or Do One of
the Other Options?
You have to take strong probiotics for candida
with colostrum and keep at it until
your own surviving bacteria can re-populate. Why
colostrum? Because when you are born as you pass through the
birth canal you swallow vaginal fluids. These fluids contain
all the bacteria that is present in your mother. Then in an
ideal world you suckle at your mothers breast and get
colostrum into your body for the first 24 to 48 hours of
life. This colostrum not only jumps starts your immune
system with immunoglobulin antibodies. But it also lines the
intestinal wall and this greatly helps these good bacteria
attach to the intestinal wall. Once attached these bacteria
start to multiply in numbers and turn into trillions of good
If you don't have any good bacteria left and
this has been proven with stool testing. Then you will probably
need to take a probiotic for the rest of your life, there is no
other way. But keep in mind, stool testing is not 100%
accurate, so you may have some good bacteria there somewhere
even if the test says you don't. And one bacteria in the right
environment, can become trillions in time.
I have included probiotic review pages
below which are of the best probiotics that
I and your fellows have used for you to review. I
hope you find it useful.
candida yeast infections is a very good candida and bad
bacterial killer. It is far superior to Candex, YST
Management, Threelac, and Probio5. It contains the candida
eating enzymes found in Candex and YST Management with an
additional enzyme that enters the blood stream. It is also
more effective, safer, and has more effective bacteria than
either Threelac or Probio5. It is the only product on this
website that I would use as a stand alone treatment for candida
if I had too.
Custom Probiotics-1 was
developed by Harry Bronozian, a chemist and a chemical
engineer, who personally suffered from Helicobacter Pylori,
the bacteria that causes ulcers, for eight months and
Candida for ten years. His Candida and H. Pylori were under
control within five months of regular use of his ultra-high
potency probiotics and he took about 500 billion cfu’s per
day. In fact, an endoscopy and biopsy indicated that H.
Pylori was completely eliminated from his intestine. One
capsule contains a guaranteed 50 billion bacteria at the
time of expiration which is one year. Fresh batches commonly
contain 60 billion or more bacteria per capsule.
powerhouse! Arguably the best probiotic for candida yeast
infections... period! This is also a Custom Probiotic
formula but the adult dose is 200 billion bacteria and it
contains 11 different strains of bacteria compared to CP-1's
five strains. If you find that CP-1 just doesn't quite work
well for you, or you want the best of the best, this is it.
for candida yeast, is it really safe?
