I will say you something real. You can feel good even if you don't have lactos and bifidos in your gut. I have been there two times. The troublemaker is candida but what happen is lactos are necessaries to keep candida under control. If candida could be eliminated at all, you get a chance to feel almost normal. I don't care what is inside of my gut as long I feel good. I have had 2 or 3 months feeling almost normal, until candida come back again. So, if you concern is if you can feel well, my answer is Yes, but how to keep this for long without a restrictive diet and antifungals??? You sure aspire to some quality of life, even if you must restrict some food but not a candida diet forever with lot of supplements to be even feeling bad. Positive thinking is great but it doesn't make your flora to recover.
