Keybiotics and MS

My husband recently learned about keybiotics and how taking them can control/eliminate the candida fungus and it all made sense until it said this fungus in your digestive system has been linked to MS.

Really??? I don't understand that.

Anyway, I am wondering if it was safe since I have MS.

Thoughts?

I do not have this fungus and I have had MS for 36+ years. This is more snake oil, I think. If you are going to take anything, please speak with your doctor for the best advice.

There was a study which involved a single patient and another with a few patients. What is possible is that with MS when your body's immune system is in overdrive it is possible that antibodies for the fungus is created. There has to be fungus infected patients prior to their development of MS for a causal link.

Now, it is possible that the fungal infection was the triggering factor in a particular patient, but I would say, save your money. I have seen similar causal links which prompted sales before regrets set in. I have seen several "fixes" cycle through 3 times and they will repeat as soon as a new generation of MSers come along.

+1

Actually, the whole candida story and it being linked to numerous illnesses is nonsense.

Re: Keybiotics and MS

gillila,

I went online and compared keybiotics to my son's microbiology textbook. It is simply a complex of probiotics. If you want inexpensive probiotics in your diet, you can get them through yogurt and many cheeses. If your doctor has a dietitian, they might be able to help you with regards to probiotic consumption. As to the specific brand, again, I would encourage you to speak with your doctor. The FDA does not regulate probiotics and there are many claims on the internet regarding their efficacy. I would still say, save your money and enjoy some yogurt
