..would these act in a similar way to probiotics [acidophilus], by way of aiding bacterial 'recovery' and fighting yeast infections/growths left over as a side effect of taking oxytetracycline? (bearing in mind I'm still on the course of antibiotics, so wouldn't want anything to interfere with these..)

They're sooo much cheaper than acidophilus as well, so hopefully the answer is yes!

And, if so - which of these would you choose?

Antifungal
Citricidal
Grapefruit seed extract used for treating candida yeast and thrush infections

Candida
Candida Tablets
A homeopathic medicine for the relief of Candida

Digestive Aids/Probiotics
Wormwood & Barberry plus
attacks candida (previously known as Eradicin forte) [NB: These are the most expensive, by far!!]

Misc. Herbal Remedies
Candidate Mult-Herbal Complex


Thanks. biggrin.gif

Probiotics are completely different from what you have listed. Probiotics will repopulate your body with good bacteria. Antis kill good bacteria and you should really take a probiotic after your done with antis. The best things to treat candida are:

Wild Oil of Oregano
Coconut Oil

you should be taking antifungals and probiotics at the same time. if u just take antifungals and antibacterials u will rid ur body of the good bacteria and be right back where u started. now what would be the point of that?
MY ROUTINE

AM
1) wash with paula's choice normal to oily cleanser
2) Napca mist from twinlab or the one from nuskin and spray many times to get a good layer of moisture.
3)Avalon organics revitalizing eye gel
4)Cory Minerals (I've found that the secret to cory is to use ur brush to really swirl it around to grind the powder down even finer than it is and then to tap off the excess and start off with thin layers and build.) i also will take a concealer brush and dab it on certain areas that i need to cover up more thickly and then use a bronzer with a big bronzer brush to blend. ( i use estee lauder bronze goddess). i use bronzer all over and this seems to even out everything.
5)Aquaphor for lips.

PM
1)Same PC N/O
2b)some nights I mask with aspirin mixed with milk of magnesia and nuetrogena clear pore cleanser mask in nose and chin area - to make mask i use a small spray bottle with distilled water that i always keep in my bathroom and i take about 8 aspirin in the palm of my hand and spray and mush with my fingers until it is a thick paste. i then add a drop of MOM and put a small amount of neut. clear pore cleanser mask. don't use mask every night.
3)Aubrey organics Vegecol toner
4)Spot treat w/ prosacea gel
5)same on eyes and lips as AM

Many antibacterial and antifungal herbs and the like actually only destroy the bad bacteria. It confuses many scientists because they should destroy the good as well but don't.
