Specializes in Pediatrics

The digestive tract is populated with germs/candida that contaminate our fingers/food & survive the stomach acid. Probiotics are simply supplements that contain germs that may benefit the taker by occupying space & taking food away from candida.They don't cause candida, but may not prevent it. The other mentioned symptoms are unrelated.
