Your Questions Answered: Citrobacter, Saccharomyces boulardii & White Tongue

Question: After several days of taking a powerful medication known for its severe side effects, I experienced a range of adverse reactions. Although some of my initial symptoms like abdominal discomfort and irregular bowel movements improved, I began to experience muscle issues, a pounding heart, and ringing in my ears. After switching to another medication, by the eighth day, many of my previous symptoms returned, including bloating, stomach pain, and reduced motility. I also noted increased brain fog and headaches. Consuming certain foods seemed to exacerbate the condition. A detailed stool analysis indicated high sensitivity to UVA Ursi, with other substances showing slightly lower sensitivities.

Have you ever recommended UVA Ursi to patients, and did they find it effective? I’m considering purchasing UVA Ursi and trying colloidal silver. I’ve also noticed mucus and am curious if you’ve ever recommended biofilm disruptors to patients. My test results show a lack of certain beneficial bacteria and a high presence of other problematic bacteria, including one that tested positive for salmonella. A few months ago, my condition was very severe, and I felt extremely unwell. I currently can’t seem to tolerate probiotics. It feels as though I need to address the infection first, then work on rebuilding beneficial bacteria. What are your thoughts?

Citrobacter is a gram-negative bacterium considered dysbiotic at 3+ to 4+. Citrobacter freundii and Citrobacter farmeri has been implicated as a cause of gastrointestinal infection and inflammation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

Citrobacter species thrive on Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a common carbohydrate found in many foods and artificial sweeteners. My recommendation would be to follow a low FODMAP diet in addition with natural antibacterials. Low FODMAP can be very restrictive, you avoid beans, grains, dairy, and some fruit and vegetables so make sure to consult a nutritionist if you are planning on doing it.

The FODMAP diet should only be followed for a period of 6 weeks to try to starve off the citrobacter. However long term it would affect healthy populations of bacteria. Additionally natural antibacterial agents can be useful for treatment of pathogenic bacteria especially when they display sensitivity to them. Natural compounds like grapefruit seed extract or uva ursi have synergistic properties, which means their effects and potency are increased when combined.

CanXida Remove was uniquely formulated with some of the most powerful natural antibacterials which include grapefruit seed extract, oregano, berberine, black walnut and caprylic acid. If your test showed higher sensitivity for Uva ursi, the best recommendation would be to combine both the Uva ursi and the CanXida remove for best results.

Uva Ursi is recommended in short courses up to 4 weeks, you can try alternating with CanXida remove and colloidal silver if symptoms are still present. Eventually if symptoms are resolving I strongly recommend taking a probiotic to help restore healthy populations of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. CanXida Restore has 6 strains of beneficial bacteria that will help Citrobacter from coming back. Additionally it has 7 digestive enzymes that will help with your digestive issues and help reduce symptoms like bloating, gas and abdominal pain. Biofilm disruptors are made primarily of digestive enzymes and sometimes natural compounds like curcumin. I would try the probiotic with enzymes first, the enzymes in the CanXida Restore were formulated for their biofilm disruptor properties, you can compare them with the biofilm disruptors in the market, they are usually the same. You can also add apple cider vinegar and curcumin to your daily routine which are natural biofilm disruptors.

Question: I have a quick question for you or someone on the team, i have the doctors data stool test at my house like u recommend but i made a mistake and was still on a enzyme supplement (from “brand name” 420 mg enzymes and s. Boulardii mix) that contains saccharomyces boulardii. My question does s.boulardii count as a regular probiotic and do i have to wait two weeks till it is out of my system in order for it not to interfere with the stool test?

Saccharomyces boulardii is a healthy probiotic strain that helps to restore the integrity of the gut mucosa and boosts your immune support. Digestive enzymes help in cases of malabsorption to restore proper digestion and shouldn’t interfere with a stool test. When you take a stool test it will analyze different strains of bacteria, and divide it in categories, the beneficial flora should contain things like Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and hopefully S. boulardii if it was able to colonize from the probiotic. This is a good sign, to have high quantities of these bacteria (3-4+ crosses). Additionally it will tell you about the dysbiotic bacteria like Klebsiella or Citrobacter, these are the ones you want to avoid. So in short, taking a supplement of S. boulardii won’t interfere with the results of your stool test, just make sure to tell the physician or the naturopath about every supplement you are taking before they perform and analyze the test.

Question: Am having a white tongue and very dry saliva due to Severe Candida overgrowth so every time I try to take probiotics or eat or drink any dairy I get too much anxiety and very severe reaction and feeling these bugs are fighting back the bacteria am getting so am worry to take the Canxida now and feel this reaction again so please in my case would you guide me on how to take it either slow and once or should be splitting it many times through the day to not feel that and for optimum result or that shouldn’t happen with the Canxida remove + retire since am taking the probiotics with enzymes and antibacterial together???

For fighting Candida, it is important to follow a protocol in a specific order. The first step is to remove the pathogenic microorganism, in this case Candida Albicans. Candida will thrive when you feed it sugars contained in dairy, grains and fruits, so it might be best to also follow an elimination diet in this step. This should be done for 4-6 weeks where you take the CanXida Remove which includes powerful antimicrobial like grapefruit seed extract, caprylic acid, oregano oil and garlic oil. Because it is formulated with natural products, you can take it for a long period of time and it won’t create resistance to the yeast. If symptoms persist after 4-6 weeks of doing both an elimination diet and taking the CanXida remove, you might need to repeat a stool test, to see if it is just yeast or a more complex dysbiosis and to check which natural antimicrobials work best for you.

Always consult with your physician or naturopath when starting a protocol like this. In case of poor digestive health, it may be necessary to restore proper digestion by supplementing with digestive enzymes. Natural things like apple cider vinegar and herbal or digestive bitters can be included in this step. If your symptoms are strong you should try betaine hydrochloride and enzymes like protease, amylase or lipase.

The third step is the one you mentioned about the probiotic, it is the step to recolonize your gut with healthy beneficial bacteria which can be done with the CanXida Restore. These probiotic strains are specifically included to make sure the Candida can’t recolonize. The formula includes helpful digestive enzymes that help break down the yeast cell wall and breaks down carbohydrates so that Candida can’t get to them and we can absorb more nutrients from the food. and avoids prebiotics that can feed any potential candia left. Finally you can take a multivitamin like CanXida Rebuild to support healthy mucosal cells and boost your immune system. Always remember you can support your body as well with adequate sleep, stress management, exercise and a healthy diet.
