Be Good to Your Guts


Nutritional Strategies for Recovery from Candida and Gut Dysbiosis

Introduction by Helke Ferrie

Over the past two decades, I have met several doctors who lost their licences or came under intense, hostile scrutiny from regulatory bodies for suggesting the existence of Candidiasis and treating Gut Dysbiosis (intestinal imbalance). The reasons include Big Pharma conflicts of interests and just plain block-headedness, what I refer to as PP & FF: Pride and Power, Fame and Fortune-fortification. Mainstream medical research has now proven that  the gut (intestinal tract) is key to the regulation of infection, proper immune and central nervous system functioning, and the health of the brain. So important has gut health become that the U.S. government initiated the Human Microbiome Project this year.
