the following into your daily treatment protocol to assist in killing the Candida yeast. There are no side
effects associated with these products if used properly.

best one for you)
* Grapefruit seed extract
Finally, you will want to replace the friendly
flora in your intestines with quality acidophilus and bifidobacteria.

yogurt. Otherwise, you are continuing a vicious cycle.
If you have a dairy intolerance, then a better option
would be to buy quality acidophilus and bifidobacteria. You will find this in the refrigerated section
of your healthfood store. It must be kept refrigerated. Check the label to identify
how much bacteria the product contains.
