Candida
I have suffered from severe flatulance for some time now and have taken numerous medications both from my doctor and from the pharmacist. I also have an itch between my legs and a leaky bladder. I think it may be candida from which I have suffered in the past. I have tried several probiotics with no result and am now taking the new Probiflora Intensive which seems to be helping. Can I take this regularly like one daily? I would love to get rid of these symptoms and would appreciate your advice on this matter, Thank you very much.

Yes, you can continue with Probiflora and take it as a supplement ongoing.
In my experience it is often necessary to treat Candida with an anti-fungal agent (e.g Canesten) and then to continue with a probiotic ongoing to prevent recurrence of the infection.
