Some people will show satisfactory improvement on the lower doses and therefore not require an increase; on the other hand, some resistant cases may require a slightly higher dose than given above. The schedule may also be modified: for some, the twenty-eight day course may prove unnecessary-two to three weeks may suffice. Once satisfactory improvement is noted, gradually reduce the Grapefruit Seed Extract dosage; if symptoms reappear, a return to a higher dose may be required. A four week treatment may not be sufficient since longstanding chronic cases may require four to six months of constant vigilance. On going supplements of the beneficial microorganisms Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidus should be taken to keep the microflora balance within the small and large intestines. Candida like other intestinal infections are the result of imbalances of good and bad bacteria.
