Food Grade Diatemaceous Earth
Yes, you may have heard that diatemaceous earth (DE) is used to clean pools. That is how it is most well known, but we find food grade diatemaceous earth very effective as part of an anti-parasite or anti-candida protocol. DE are old tiny fossils that act as little razorblades to candida to slice open their exoskeleton so that they can fall away and be carried out of the body by other products. While the blades are sharp enough to slice into candida, they don't harm the human body at all because of how small they are. This product should only be used as directed by your health care practictioner to make sure it is safe for you.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic probiotic yeast. S.boulardii has been well studied for its use in the prevention of gastrointestinal disturbances often associated with the use of antibiotics (like candida albicans overgrowth). S.boulardii has also been used in clinical trials in patients with irritable bowel disorders. Saccharomyces boulardii has been found to exert many beneficial effects in humans and acts in two principle ways: first by inhibiting some bacterial toxins or their effects; and secondly by having direct effects on the intestinal mucosa. We use this product in all of our anti-candida protocols. We do not suggest staying on it (or any single strain probiotic) for more than four weeks at a time.
Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.
