Diet and Probitiotics – How Long Will the Result Come Out and Which Probiotics is Better?

This article will try to address an issue about the candida diet and probiotics. The information is based on a question from my friend. She has been very overwhelmed by the new diet. She asks about how long it takes to kick the yeast infection. She also has read that probiotics are important in replacing the flora, but how do we know which is good and which isn’t, because there are so many choices out there.

I’ve been told that Jarrow is a good brand, and that brand includes FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides), a type of “sugar” which feeds the good bacteria, the yeast cannot use it, so it allows the good guys to multiply rapidly. FOS is OK for most people, but some doctors may advise you to stay away from it as they fear it will feed the pathogenic intestinal bacteria in the small bowel.

Besides Jarrow, someone thinks that you can’t go wrong with Solgar. They’re a little more expensive than other brands, but their supplements are always good quality and they seem to work! My friend’s cupboard is full of little gold bottles.

Regarding how long it takes for the diet to kick the candida, my friend gives me her input. She is forever asking her homeopath this and he says ‘how long is a piece of string?’ She guesses it depends how long you’ve had it, where it is and how firm a hold it’s got, but she has seen ‘a month for every year you’ve been sick’ quoted as a very rough guideline.

Microbes, Immune Balance/Immune Homeostasis, Antibiotics, and Probiotics

Our bodies have the highest density of microbes known on Earth. The bacteria in and on our bodies are represented by 3.3 million genes. The numbers of genes in these organisms far outnumber the number of human genes in our own bodies. Samples from 124 healthy Europeans found on average more than 530,000 unique genes in each sample, with 99.1% of the genetic material coming from the bacterial cells.

While we provide bacteria with food and lodging, they provide benefits to us, including helping to digest food, breaking down toxins, and providing some of our nutritionally essential vitamins and amino acids.

There is significant cross-talk between our microbial populations and our immune system and this relationship is an important contributor to our health. Not only do immune cells regulate the balance of the types and numbers of bacteria, but also the types and numbers of bacteria affect the workings of the immune system, especially its inflammatory responses.

Dr. David A. Relman of Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA found that when people take bacteria-killing antibiotics, the microbial ecosystem that returns, is different from the microbial population that existed prior to taking the antibiotics. Moreover, if the same antibiotic is taken again, even 6 months later, bacteria populations take longer to return, and the bacteria are even more different than the original spectrum of bacteria that had existed in the gut.

Dr. Relman says, “Everything comes with a cost,” he said. “The problem is finding the right balance. As clinicians, we have not been looking at the cost to the health of our microbial ecosystems.”*

Additionally there is a problem of the interaction of intestinal microbes with medications. Over 40 different medications can be activated or inactivated, depending on the microbe. This event influences one’s response to medication.

Many people take supplemental probiotics, beneficial gut bacteria, with the hopes of changing their intestinal ecosystems. Unfortunately, the evidence suggests that organisms in probitoic mixtures do not become established populations in the gut, and that they only last for a relative short period, or while the ingestion of the probiotic continues.

Once again, the importance of balance in the body is paramount. Considering that over 75% of the immune system is represented in the gut, immune balance, inflammatory homeostasis, helps the body provide natural resistance to disease. If the immune system is not functioning properly, if it is in disorder, the physical and emotional aspects of our life and health will be out of balance and in disarray.

A body in immune homeostasis is able to respond appropriately to challenges by either “boosting” the “fire power” of an inflammatory immune response to “burn out” an infection, or suppress an inappropriately excessive immune response to the challenge. The key is to maintain immune and digestive homeostasis.

Probiotic – Histamine-Free & D-Lactate Free – Probiotics for Mood with Prebiotics – Bifidus Mood Boost – Prebiotic GOS


Price: $25.88
(as of Nov 23,2019 19:28:15 UTC – Details)



At LIFTED, we believe in healing the microbiome to enhance mental health side-effects. Yet, many people are sensitive to D-Lactate and have a histamine intolerance. So, we created a Mood Probiotic specifically for those individuals! Individuals who are suffering from autoimmune issues are especially in need of a probiotic with selective strains. We’ve included FOUR of the best bacterial strains to help with mood and the body’s stress response, while keeping the formula d-lactate and histamine free. ***** We created LIFTED because we believed there had to be a better way. Many mainstream medicines cause side-effects, which require more and more mainstream medicines! Something isn’t right with that model! Over the last decade, research has surfaced, showcasing the connection between gut health and many immune issues including: allergies, eczema, asthma, and more. We wanted to create a high quality probiotic with strains targeted for digestive health and immune health, but also MENTAL health. ***** Our probiotics are NOT enteric coated. On purpose. Enteric coating adds extra ingredients that are not necessarily required and the heating process of enteric coating can potentially damage the good bacteria. If you want our probiotic to survive stomach acidity and work at it’s best, take it with food. That’s it! *****
We’ve included a POWERFUL prebiotic to help you feel better.
Our blend is especially potent with our PREBIOTIC, GOS– the the ONLY prebiotic that’s been proven to help with anxiety. Stress can trigger issues for many people and these probiotics are an amazing, natural way to combat that stress. ***** We created BIFIDUS Mood Boost because we are wildly optimistic about our capacity to feel better. Naturally!

PREBIOTIC GOS. The ONLY prebiotic studied to help with anxiety. Prebiotic feeds the good bacteria in your gut for a healthy microbiome.
TARGETED “FEEL GOOD” STRAINS. B. Infantis, B. Breve, B. Longum, B. Bifidum. We loaded this custom formula with the TOP preforming bacterial strains (while keeping it d lactate free and histamine free) to help with mood support and anxiety relief

Bio-Kult Advanced Probiotics -14 Strains, Probiotic Supplement, Probiotics for Adults, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, No Need for Refrigeration, Non-GMO, Gluten Free Capsules-60 Count (Pack of 1)


Price: $26.01 - $19.50
(as of Nov 23,2019 13:24:20 UTC – Details)



What are probiotics? Bio-Kult contains 14 live probiotic strains to complement the existing gut flora naturally present in a healthy person’s digestive system. There are trillions of microorganisms including different types of bacteria that live in our gut – the gut microbiome. They reside naturally within your body’s gastrointestinal tract & play an important role in maintaining overall well-being. What is ‘gut dysbiosis’? Sometimes, the balance of bacteria in your gut can become imbalanced from things such as ill health, poor diet and/or antibiotics (which can kill off the necessary bacteria in your system), resulting in something called ‘gut dysbiosis’. You can help restore the balance in your digestive system by eating a diet with a rich rainbow of fruit and vegetables and can further assist this by taking a bacterial supplement. About Bio-Kult: Our award-winning nutritional probiotic supplement (see images further down) is a scientifically developed, advanced multi-strain formulation containing 14 live probiotic strains designed to target the digestive system. Bio-Kult does not need to be refrigerated and is suitable to be taken alongside antibiotics, by babies, toddlers, children, when pregnant, when travelling, by vegetarians and as part of a healthy diet. How do I use Bio-Kult Advanced? Our capsules can be pulled apart and the contents sprinkled onto food, mixed with a drink or swallowed whole. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place – out of direct sunlight. Don’t probiotics need to be kept in the fridge? As with all Bio-Kult products, there is no need to refrigerate and they can be stored at room temperature. This is in thanks to our unique freeze-drying process where the probiotics in the Bio-Kult range are encapsulated during the freeze drying (lyophilisation) process, which may aid protection from the harsh acid environment of the stomach. Won’t the stomach acid kill all the bacteria off before they can start working? All our Bio-Kult products are proven to survive the high acidity of stomach acid. Directions for use*: Take 1-2 capsules once or twice daily with food. If you are taking antibiotics: Take 4 capsules daily, ideally at a different time of day from the antibiotics. Continue taking for at least 2 weeks after completion of the antibiotic course. For travellers: 1 week before travel follow guidelines for general use. During travel take 4 capsules daily. Continue to take for at least 1 week following the end of travel. Children under 12: Take half the adult dose. Pregnancy: Bio-Kult is suitable for use during pregnancy, but we would always suggest consulting your doctor or healthcare practitioner before taking any food supplement. Do not exceed recommended daily intake. *If you are taking any medications or have any medical conditions, please consult your doctor before taking any nutritional food supplements.

Microorganisms present in the intestine, collectively called the gut microbiota, are essential to our health
Includes Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bacillus subtilis and 11 more strains (see full probiotic strain list further down this page)
Suitable to be taken alongside antibiotics, by babies, toddlers, children, when pregnant, when travelling, by vegetarians and as part of a healthy diet. Non GMO.

Autism Treatment – Using Probiotics in Autism Treatment

I want to discuss the different types of probiotics and what are considered general probiotics and those that are considered treatment specific probiotics. The options on the market for probiotics are many and varied. Three major examples of all around, multi-floral probiotic products are Probiotic Support Formula from New Beginnings, Therbiotic Complete from Klaire Labs and Multi-Flora Spectrum from Kirkman labs. There are certainly other forms but these are three very good, multi-floral probiotics that have a number of good bacteria in them. And a good way to understand the benefits of these probiotics is to view them as a multi-vitamin for the overall health of your digestive tract. Probiotic Support Formula, Therbiotic Complete and Multi-Flora Spectrum are all very helpful for the overall health of the digestive system.

Next we can discuss what I call the treatment specific probiotic options. Treatment specific probiotics are used to treat a specific disorder or issue within the body. Culturelle is one example of this. What Culturelle is, is a specific type of probiotic called acidophilus GG and it can be very effective at targeting and going after clostridia bacteria. Quite a few people use Three Lac as a treatment for yeast since it is particularly helpful for that. So of course, you wouldn't use Three Lac long term as an all around, immune and digestive support aid. You would use Three Lac with the intent to help control yeast overgrowth. VSL # 3 is another example of a treatment specific probiotic. It is a very potent probiotic that has been used successfully to break down oxalates. And while it does have some effectiveness against clostridia as well, for the most part it is used to help combat high oxalate levels. A fourth treatment specific probiotic is called Saccharomyces Boulardii which is a type of yeast that will attack another form of yeast called candida. So Saccharomyces Boulardii is used specifically as part of an anti-fungal approach because of this tendency to help control candida. It can also be very effective when used while you are taking antibiotics, it can prevent a yeast overgrowth from starting. Saccharomyces Boulardii also does have some effectiveness at fighting clostridia as well.

So as you can see, there are many probiotics out there and this was to serve as just a highlight. As a recap there are multi-floral probiotics which serve to enhance the immune system and to enhance the digestive system and then there are probiotics that are treatment specific that I outlined above.

Treat Your Post-Cholecystectomy Hemorrhoids With Probiotics

Are you suffering from chronic hemorrhoids after cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)? You may be interested to learn of a type of bacteria that can help your entire digestive system recover gently and naturally. You can get relief from hemorrhoid pain and itching by improving the bacterial balance in your gut.

Post-cholecystectomy syndrome, estimated to occur in up to one out of eight cholecystectomy patients, can occur for some time after surgery because the gallbladder is no longer there to regulate the release of bile from the liver into the intestines.

In persons with post-cholecystectomy syndrome, bile floods into the digestive tract, usually after a meal high in fat. This bile intensely irritates the intestinal lining, rendering it unable to absorb water normally, which leads to diarrhea. The type of diarrhea experienced by those with post-cholecystectomy syndrome is usually very sudden and of high intensity. People report being unable to get to a toilet in time.

Diarrhea of this type is known to cause trauma to sensitive anal tissues, causing fissures and injuring veins.

Sometimes, changing to a low-fat diet and eliminating obvious irritants such as spices or coffee works well for persons with cholecystectomy-related digestive problems.

Others may find relief from prescription medications designed to bind fat molecules allowing them to pass undigested. These pharmaceuticals have well-documented negative side effects including leakage and bloating, dizziness and headaches.

Fortunately, there are natural remedies for diarrhea that help improve your digestion and stop the flow. The class of bacteria known as probiotics includes Lactobacillus acidophilus (lactic acid bacteria), Saccharomyces boulardii, Bifidobacterium longum, and yeast. These bacteria are normally present in the human digestive system but are susceptible to being overtaken by infectious bacteria such as Clostridium difficile. This can occur in people taking antibiotics and those who are recovering from viral or bacterial stomach upset. The symptoms of harmful bacterial overgrowth can range from stomach pain to life-threatening intestinal infections.

All strains of probiotics are not created equal – some, such as S. boulardii, are particularly effective in battling diarrhea caused by C. difficile or antibiotic use, while Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG has demonstrated the ability to reduce the severity and duration of virus-caused diarrhea.

When the right probiotics are added to the diet of persons with post-cholecystectomy syndrome, the irritating effects of the “bad” bacteria are reduced, the intestines are once again able to absorb water, and hemorrhoids caused by diarrhea can begin to heal.
