Candida is associated with craving simple carbs (white foods--pasta, bread, rice, and all sugars) which feed the yeast. Candida develops for many reasons. Basically, it is a 'helper' attempting to create balance in the gut, generally due to antibiotics, preservatives, heavy metal toxins and sterile foods.
We can make candida obsolete and unnecessary by rebalancing gut microbials.
The gut and the brain are pretty far apart, but increasingly scientists are connecting the dots and finding that Parkinson's is truly related to gut bacteria.
There are so many proven health benefits to probiotics, but immune health is a primary feature. Pat Robinson of Heal Thyself! has done organized the research contained on GreenMedInfo.com, with a focus on its immune benefits.

A groundbreaking new study finds probiotic ‘germs’ may provide an alternative to vaccination for malaria – a finding that challenges fundamental tenets of both vaccinology and germ theory.
Bacteria endotoxins - waste matter produced by bacteria - can flood our bodies and cause disease. This is exacerbated by leaky gut syndrome. The combination of the two has now been scientifically linked to a number of metabolic and inflammatory diseases, including heart disease.
Does your baby have a healthy gut? What does your baby's poop say about your infant's well-being?

Millions of Americans take over the counter painkillers like Advil or Aleve without realizing they can damage the gut, leading to leaky gut syndrome. Here's how you can heal it...
Researchers from the University of California at San Diego have found the best defense against infections from MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections. Hint: We are already wearing it, unless we kill it off with antibiotics.
The notion that asthma is a genetic disorder or one of faulty lungs rings untrue in light of the evidence. Research from Australia has now determined that many asthma patients are dealing with a sustained bout of bacteria infection - often resistant to antibiotics.
We use a lot of antibiotics. For coughs, cuts, urinary tract infections, and many times “just in case.”
Italian researchers have confirmed that a certain oral probiotic species significantly reduces ear infections, throat infections and tonsillitis among children and adults with recurring infections.
There are gaping holes in vaccine science, especially the critical role of microflora in mediating vaccine effects, including adverse ones.
