leaky gut causing candida

Thanks for the timely reply to my SR question! I have just one other thing that I'm wondering about... if Dr. Stoll or anybody else who knows could help me out that would be great!
Dr. Stoll says that candida is ALWAYS preceded by leaky gut syndrome. He says that the leaky gut decreases the numbers of friendly bacteria in the gut, I'm assuming by causing an immune reaction to the bacteria themselves (correct me if I'm wrong there). Yeast is then allowed to grow unchecked, which in turn worsens the leaky gut.
The conventional view (held by alternative medicine doctors) is that drugs such as antibiotics destroy the friendly bacteria FIRST, which then allows candida to overgrow, which then CAUSES leaky gut as it roots into the intestines.
How do these different views mesh? What are your opinions on the role antibiotics play in the causation of CRC?
Like most people who recognize they have this disease, I'm most interested in eliminating the CAUSE to permanently cure it, so I'm trying to understand every contributing factor. Thanks!

James,

Certainly, antibiotics can precipitate candida via producing dysbiosis. However if that was the only cause, everytime anyone got antibiotics everyone would get candida and this does not happen. There almost has to be other factors operating for just a short course of antibiotice to precipitate this.

Remember, the yeast form of candida is all around all of us all the time. Were it not for a healthy ecology in our guts, we all would have candida all the time.

Once one HAS candida it does further damage the gut wall and worsen the LGS.

That makes sense. In my case, though, I was on the maximum recommended dose of tetracyclene for one and a half years straight. I'm only twenty-two. Do you think that additional precipitating factors are necessarily present in a case like mine?
I've become pretty interested in skilled relaxation since browsing through your bulletin board here, so I'll probably begin integrating that into my lifestyle ANYWAY. How does exercise like non-competitive jogging compare to skilled relaxation as far as relieving stress and healing goes? I know that tonnes of tension can be released by running on a regular basis, and I never feel as healthy, physically or mentally, if I don't run.

Thanks for the help - It's so difficult to find good, comprehensive information on CRC!

Hi, James.

Your 1 1/2 years of Tetracycline is exactly the thing most likely to cause enough dysbiosis to open one up to candida.

Unfortunately, just getting off the antibiotic will not enough to resolve the problem. Besides that, you will be more likely to get the problem in the future since this has happened (A legacy of your exposure to alopathic medicine.)

Exercise is NOT a substitute for SR (or vice versa). They multiply the benefits of each other!

Hope this helps.

Walt
