Re: Effective antifungals.

I would like to have the right answer for you. That was my anology at first when I began in this battle. It may be the cause but I am not 100 % sure. It is true the Antibiotics kill the bacterias in the gut but let think about some things.
First, most oral Antibiotics are systemic meaning they are absorbed very quickly in the small bowel, so they may not damage too much the colonic flora. The small bowel should be almost sterile with a low bacterial number. The colon is home of the biggest bacterial population. In fact, we can say our benefical flora reside in the colon.
Second, the Antibiotics deppress the immune system, so the fungal overgrowth could be linked to an immune suppression during the Antibiotic intake caused by them or any other cause ( viruses, metal toxicity, etc )
Third, there are people who have taken antibiotics for long time and don't complaint of candida or intestinal symptoms. Why are them an exeption to the rule??
Fourth, there are antibiotics such as Cipro and Levaquin that have activity against aerobic bacterial species but poor against anaerobics. Our identified friendly flora so far is anaerobic or facultative anaerobic. Why some people report candida after Cipro or Levaquin when these antibiotics teorically don't damage the friendly flora ?? Could be it that Science doesn't know about all the benefical bacterias we have in the gut ??
It is logic to think that the effect of the antibiotics on the friendly flora is the cause of a fungal overgrowth but there are questions I don't have the answer.
