|Info Wanted on P, Candida and Antibiotics
from Paul C.
I am inviting people to respond to me regarding
their own use of antibiotics and Candida.
I would be very interested to hear from your readers. In particular, I'm interested in hearing from people who have:
1. been on a long-term course of antibiotics at any time in the past.
Ed's Response: I have read and heard, ever since I became a flaker, that general health is associated with P. From what I understand about our disease, this makes perfect sense. If P hypes the immune system as it affects skin regeneration, it's easy to believe anything else that hypes the immune system is likely to have a corresponding affect on our flaking. Again, this is an intuitive assumption, not a fact (it assumes immune system "hyping," regardless of the catalyst, enjoins a cumulative reactionan admittedly dangerous assumption). But if it were a fact, it requires no leap of faith to understand how/why you experienced an explosion of P, what with the (a) cessation of your topicals, (b) probable contraction of candidiasis or something similar, and (c) your near-fatal case of meningitis. In anybody's book that's a pretty stressful combination!
I hope posting your request for information here bears fruit. Please, share whatever you may learn with us! Good luck, Paul. -Ed
