i can't remember if i asked this, so here goes.

i'm on liquid nystatin and i'm pretty sure i have systemic.

the pharmacist says it treats systemic but i've researched all over the web and it says no it doesn't.

however, dr. crook in his book "the yeast connection" uses it to treat systemic, along with diet.

so, yes or no, does it treat systemic or just oral?

Dear randibear,
I would trust Dr. Crook's findings. To this day, he is still the most commonly referred to on yeast. I have systemic yeast, and it is extremely difficult to shake. I cannot go low-carb due to low blood sugar. I have been considering doing the SCD.

Sincerely,
Jin

My LLMD gives Nystatin for systemic yeast. Gives Diflucan for vaginal yeast.

Hmmmm. My LLMD gives VFend or diflucan for systemic yeast,

And nystatin for yeast in the lower GI.

Go figure.

If you are taking nystatin and it isn't hitting all the yeast....

Then maybe consider something else.

Hugs,

Geneal

Forgot to add that when my son was an infant and breast feeding,

He often got thrush (congenital Lyme issue I know now),

But would pass it to me via my milk ducts.

No fun.

OB gave me nystatin swish to put in his mouth and on my breast.

Messy, sticky and didn't work.

Then we did diflucan and presto!

It passed right through my breast milk and he and I both got relief.

So, I would venture as my son and I did this about every

Ten to fourteen days, that diflucan goes to more places

And can be used to treat other issues besides vaginal yeast.

BTW, I've never had that issue with Lyme.

Just the thrush on the tongue issue.

I only take nystatin for two weeks every sixty days

When I take a break from my diflucan protocol.

Hugs,

Geneal

Just my experience though.

Hugs,

Geneal

nystatin is not strong enough to kill systemic
yeast.
diflucan or vfend is necessary and you must be off
systemic abx to cure it.
you can't cure systemic yeast if you are on abx.
the abx are too strong and kill normal flora that
protects you from yeast.
also with systemic yeast comes systemic viruses
so both must be treated to prevent outbreak.
acyclovir is generic and cheap.
liver functions are necessary for vfend and acyclovir once a month.
you can not take enough probiotics to overcome
the effects of abx and their destruction on the
normal flora of the gi tract.

I didn't mean systemic yeast from Nystatin.. don't know why i said that. He says its for the intestinal yeast. But when my 15 yr old was on Nystatin and still got a vaginal yeast infection, he put her on Diflucan. I prefer Diflucan.

Dear stymielymie,
I know what you said may be why I cannot get rid of the yeast. I tolerate few drugs, so I prefer herbals. I was on anywhere from 2-4 courses of abx per year from birth to my late teens for Bronchitis. I also had to do the Helidac Therapy (Amoxy, Pink Bismuth, and Flagyl 3 times daily, plus Prevacid) for four times longer than the average person. No wonder every little thing irritates it.

You have to build the good bacteria up again. Repairing the damage done to your ecosystem is difficult when you have done abx like I have. Someone recommended VSL#3, but I cannot afford it right now. I am currently taking Accu-Flora and can tell a difference if I am even a slightest bit late with it. Vinegar is brutal on my stomach, so it has to be almost completely avoided.

Sincerely,
Jin
