I didn't intend to return to this newsgroup, but someone I correspond with
mentioned they were following it, so I checked back.  thank you for your
response,  my nutritionist got some results of Chromagar tests that showed high
levels of Candida Tropicalis.  Because she is not a Dr., cannot prescribe.  I
wonder if anyone knows if this is a serious condition or is this a dangerous
fungus?  How would it be treated.  I do have some Dr.'s apt.s lined up, but
because of my failing health, answers cannot come soon enough.  Will rubbing
alcohol kill all parasites?  I live in the middle of Manhattan and have not
been able yet to find someone who knows much about parasites.  If someone could
direct me I would be grateful.
