I won't discuss this topic here because I have done several times. I am a veteran in this war against candida and own 9 books about it. I have written to Dr. Carolin Dean, Dr Walter Stoll, Dr Michael Mc Nett, Dr John P. Trowbridge, Dr Edwar Winger, etc. All of them MD and candida pioneer drs. I have read more than 800 or 900 hours about candida, leaky gut, probiotics, prebiotics and alternative therapies to cure it. Probiotics DON'T IMPLANT THE HUMAN GUT PERMANENTELY. So far, there isn't any evidence that they can create new colonies in the gut, no matter if the intestinal lining is damaged or not. Probiotics only do temporary benefits as long as you be taken them. Once you stop them, their benefits go away in days. Even those human origen strains such as LGG, L. Reuteri, V-299 aren't able to implant permanentely. The only way which may give some results to recolonize the gut is fecal implant from a healthy donor. There is nothing more I wish in my life this were wrong, but unfortunately is not. I have done every possible thing to find information from a reliable source which stay probiotic intake can replenish the gut, but there isn't scientific evidence. Again, I am sorry to say this and there are several guys in this forum well informed about it. The only thing you can do to recover some of the indigenous gut microbiota is taking prebiotics to feed those which remain alive after the Antibiotic massacre. There is not more hope so far... I will pay 100 bucks for each real evidence you bring to this forum.... I will be very happy to pay!!!
