I would like your opinion of the use of Soil Based Organism, for GI issues and candida in particular. I am on a very strict diet and take some anti fungal supplements, but would like to add this in.  Have you used them and what do you think of them.  Any recommendations on eradicating candida would be appreciated.  My GI doc does not believe in candida very much or knows anything about natural treatments for it. Thank  you.

Hi John

Thanks for your question.
To my knowledge, Soil Based Organisms are microorganisms are not reside in the human GI tract, but can promote the human beneficial bacteria to grow.
The source of the Soil Based Organisms has many myths. I do not want to go in the details and spoil your appetite.

Personally, I use medically researched probiotics, which can live in the human organism. For example, Biotherapy Complete Probiotics or probiotics from Natren company. The problem is that Candida-yeast overgrowth is rampant nowadays, thanks to overuse of antibiotics and food revolution.

Candida is opportunistic infection; so it grows when there is opportunity to grow. Common medical approach “find and destroy” does not work. In early stages, lab tests are inconsistent because everyone has this microorganism. People that talk about “kill and eradicate Candida forever” are very far from medicine.

Human organism has the natural mechanism to control opportunistic infection otherwise people could not exist. I medically explain it in my EBook“Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”. You may know more about Candida-yeast overgrowth and why your “GI doc does not believe in candida very much or knows anything about natural treatments for it.”

You can realize how your condition develops, what you have to eat, and how to reverse the Candida-yeast overgrowth.

My way to control Candida you can find in our website.
