Thrush? Candida?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been strictly Gluten, Soy, Dairy free for 1 year and 3 months now and had been feeling much better... I had not been taking a probiotic for the last 5 months and started to feel bloated and developed a little "D" last month, so I decided to start taking another probiotic regiment.. Well 2 weeks after I started taking the probiotic daily, I started having a very slimy sensation in my mouth with the roof of my mouth feeling the slimiest...Also the tip of my tongue is giving me a wierd sensation, almost like I burned it a little bit. It feels a bit numb...I have been trying to scrub my mouth and tongue with my toothbrush at least 3 times a day and I can not seem to get rid of the slimy feeling. Could this be thrush/candida being caused by the probiotic?? The Probiotic I take is Culturelle Digestive health with Dairy Free Lactobacillus GG. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Humans are the only mammals using dairy products after infancy. I know going against the general belief dairy to be beneficial, is like sacrilege.

But IMHO I think the pro-biotics are just a scam. Great marketing though to make us believe we can't do without them.

However in the whole spectrum of gut flora, the Lactic acid and bifidobacteria occupy just a very tiny spot. My doctors assured me I can do without them.
