I didn't intend to return to this newsgroup, but someone I correspond with
mentioned they were following it, so I checked back. thank you for your
response, my nutritionist got some results of Chromagar tests that showed high
levels of Candida Tropicalis. Because she is not a Dr., cannot prescribe. I
wonder if anyone knows if this is a serious condition or is this a dangerous
fungus? How would it be treated. I do have some Dr.'s apt.s lined up, but
because of my failing health, answers cannot come soon enough. Will rubbing
alcohol kill all parasites? I live in the middle of Manhattan and have not
been able yet to find someone who knows much about parasites. If someone could
direct me I would be grateful.
