The candida problem is several times removed from the source of the problem. First, the good germs situation in the colon was interrupted by some kind of drug. Probably antibiotic. If a person is young enough, adding the probiotics probably will do it. If someone is older, they have usually taken doctor's drugs or OTC drugs and have gotten other kinds of poisons, so the liver is now compromised. The yeast goes from it's first bud-like stages to it's hyphae stage and eats holes in the intestines and can get into all the organs. Other parasites accompany the yeast. So, yeah, I'd certainly do a colon cleanse and the dewormer and also some liver flushes to make sure the body gets cleaned out, the liver gets back on line, the colon is working properly and rid of all the junk lining it, and then the candida can be gotten rid of. That is my story of how it all happened.
