Ted you are a lifesaver!

Re your 2007 post from:

"One major vitamin I have narrowed down, is the niacinamide vitamin B3, usually taken at about 300 mg/day has usually resulted in 50% reduction in yeast infection on the first dose, and the resulting doses, on the third or fourth day nearly all the yeast infection goes away and never came back, provided of course the body has sufficient vitamin B3 maintenance dose without causing a deficiency. The reason why is that yeasts have a gene called SIR 2 mechanism whereby the niacinamide induces early death of the yeast cells and hence keep their growth in check and stays within normal biological parameters and ideal symbiosis. If I am looking for that one single bullet it has got to be that niacinamide B3."

I tried the niacinimide B3 supplement 500mg for a yeast infection that would not go away and was keeping me up at night. None of my normal remedies were helping... low sugar/carb diet, yogurt, probiotics, walnut oil/tea tree/oregano oil douche. I also took an iodine supplement and took the baking soda/lime/water mix to normalize Ph levels. I noticed a huge difference within 24 hours. I am going to incorporate the baking soda/lime drink plus one cup of green tea per day and take a multivitamin that has iodine and all the B vitamins you mentioned as a maintenance routine.

I thought I knew how to handle yeast infections after dealing with them for 20 years but you helped me so much. Thank you for sharing your knowledge in such an accessible and understandable way. I have learned so much from your website over the past 10 years!
