I too have problems with candida. A book I am currently reading states that people w/lots of mercury fillings tend to have more problems with candida as it acts like a sponge to soak up some of the mercury in the body.

Saccharomyces is helpful to prevent and relieve diarrhea, particularly when medication related.
