Re: Probiotics contributing to SIBO/biofilms/feeding pathogens??

 Ah, it's the classification of the exact disorder that I'm using wrong? It's confusing because the terms you listed are used interchangeably even in research articles and are not well defined.

Thanks for the clarification! I'm new to this site. :-)

That was an excellent post by Dvorge and hit the nail on the head about what I have been saying.  Yes, the term "systemic" is loosely used, which is why it creates so much confusion.  Systemic literally means throughout the body.  Something like candidasis or thrush are not the same as "systemic Candida".

Unfortunately, many terms are used loosely in medicine, which leads to a lot of confusion.  For example,  I have seen so many AIDS "experts" refer to AIDS as a disease.  It is not a disease, it is a syndrome.  And the words lactic acid and lactate are frequently interchanged even though they are not the same thing.  Lactic acid is acidic and lactate is not.  Even the term Candida, which is a microbe, is often used incorrectly in place of candidiasis, which is Candida overgrowth.
