Easy solution to Candida or Yeast Issues?

I found this simple idea today. Take one to 6 tsp. cream of tartar daily (just a little less than bowel tolerance--meaning, um, if things are runny, you are taking too much). I haven't actually tried this one, but it's cheap and simple, so sounds good to me.

And it makes sense too. Cream of tartar is the waste product from fermenting grapes. So, the yeast can't survive well in it's own waste.

Here's a link about it all:

And of course, don't forget to be eating the good bacteria. Before refrigerators, people fermented to preserve things. But our bodies still need pro-biotics and the best form is food. Kombucha and raw apple cider vinegar are my 2 favorite forms, though I'd like to start making kefir soon. But I remind myself--one step at a time. I'm not there yet. But I know where I want to go!

Made my first batch of kifer over the weekend with grains my friends gave me. It turned out all curdy and separated, but I just blended it up with a hand blender. It tasted the same. I might try kefir powdered starter and see if I have better luck with it.
I like kefir, but then I like the store bought buttermilk too...I like to drink it by the glass. My kids think I've lost my mind.
