That sounds great Michelle- so nice of you to pass this info along ;-). YES- I definately agree regarding candida damaging the small bowel. I believe it's responsible for all my gut pain and malabsorption over the years. If you're looking for very high potency probiotics, try a product called Custom Probiotics---www.customprobiotics.com
I've been using that one for about a month now, with a lot of success. Probiotics are the only thing that ever help me-- I almost feel normal when I get a good high count one ( which is very hard to find- the only other brand that does me any good is called Innergarden Flora by Rgarden company ).
