I am a recovering alcoholic (3 years), have been treating myself for candida for some time, have leaky gut, and have been athsmatic most of my life, until I went on the candida diet then it miraculously went away. I am 44 years old. I used to have terrific stomach problems, constant nausea, acid reflux, indigestion, diahhrea (sp), etc.
The company I buy most of my supplements from do a capsule containing 200mg of betane hydrochloride, and 100mg pepsin with a recommended dosage of 3 caps daily with food and a glass of water.
Do you think this would cure my candida once and for all? As my athsma, stomach problems (apart from candida) have cleared up, does that mean my stomach acids are balanced now? Or is the lingering candida/leaky gut a sign that things are still poor? Is it OK to take this with leaky gut?
