Treating A Yeast Infection/Candida
(Roseville, Ca. USA)
Hello! I am treating a yeast infection/candida as well as dealing with gluten intolerance, which I just found out I may have.
As far as the candida I was told not to bother taking the probiotic while on the grapeseed because it will just kill it and waste my money. So I quit taking the probiotic for a couple of weeks.
In the meantime I ended up with a UTI which at that point I went back on the probiotic and added cranberry juice (unsweetened of course) as well as the pill form and dandelion tea.
My question is, can I take the GSE and Probiotic at the same time? Or does the GSE cancel out the probiotic?
I'm a firm believer in taking probiotics when they are needed, regardless of whether you are on antibiotics, herbal anti-fungals, or anything else that is compromising your immune system.
I personally don't think using probiotics while treating a yeast infection/candida with antifungals is a waste of money, assuming you are using good quality probiotics.
The only stipulation I would make is that you don't take the probiotics at the same time of day as the other. Take your probiotics at least an hour before or after the grape seed extract or any anti-fungals you may take.
You took the right steps for treating your urinary tract infection. I hope that has cleared up for you.
If you aren't already using psyllium fiber as part of your cleansing process, that's something you may want to consider adding. The fiber, along with cleansing herbs, will help you get your candida under control much more quickly. To your good health!
