The link below will take you to a paper written by a candida researcher, yes! a real scientist. Looks like it's from the UK. Good read for both newbies and veterns. It discusses leaky gut, vaginitis, skin conditions and more.
This comes at the end of the paper:
The foregoing represents a holistic and fairly exhaustive approach to the treatment of candidiasis, which of course, is not necessary in every case: often we do no more than give a single anti-candidal supplement for a few months. However, as Pasteur eventually realized, it is the terrain not the germ that is important, and unless the factors that caused Candida to overgrow in the first place are modified, candidiasis can return with astonishing speed.
