Need second opinion: Your diet is unusual and leaky gut is a very rare condition .

Be discerning. ...Read more

Does the "beneficial bacteria" in yogurt kill candida albicans in gut and vagina?

Does the "beneficial bacteria" in yogurt kill candida albicans in gut and vagina?

No: Lactobacillus species are in cultured unpasteurized yogurt. In your gut you have hundreds or thousands of different organisms all in competition with each other, including candida. When the relative numbers of these are disturbed the candida can be there in greater number & more likely to produce infection elsewhere. The lactobacilli may, by competition, decrease the number of candida. ...Read more
