    Does anyone have an idea of what kind of probiotic would be used for aspergillis and candidiasis?
    Need to go shopping and I don't know if the vitamin shop would have a clue.
    Thanks.

    A) when it comes to probiotics I always look at https://cfsremission.com/ Ken has a lot of good info about interactions between botanicals, probiotics and fungi.

    B) when it comes to fungi I would look at nystatin or something similar.

    here is Myhill's page on candida http://drmyhill.co.uk/wiki/Yeast_problems_and_candida

    I came to the conclusion that I had too much yeast in 2014 but was unable to afford to do the private tests that my doctor would have needed to prescribe the nystatin or other antifungals. So I tried botanicals and probiotics and got some improvement.

    Early this year I was able somehow to meet criteria for a single course or nystatin and the change was dramatic. I had at that stage a good degree of fermentation in my stools (when I formed them) after taking the nystatin they sank, sat on the bottom of the bowl and had no evidence of fermentation at all.

    I do not know if it works this way but my ubiome tests had showed very low total bacterial counts, about 5% of the normal levels, so I wonder if that was because almost everything was fungal.

    Anyway the antifungals did not suddenly make me well, but I went from having lots of undigested food in every stool to having stools that were pretty homogeneous. And the change was dramatic enough to convince the the doctor so I am doing something like myhill's protocol.

    I am not sure if this works for aspergillis.

    Pichia is the antagonist of opportunistic fungi:

    Pichia is the friendly yeast of the saccharomyces family. Saccharomyces boulardii or saccharomyces cerevisiae are members of this family and antagonists.
