HP certainly is a good candida treatment for some, but I have certainly found that some patients have little to no relief with its use. Women tend to find that it works OK with vaginal thrush, and some have more benefit from boric acid. Different strokes I guess. I started recommending HP over ten years ago and was very excited about its use, only to find spectacular results with a few, average results with others and aggravations with more. Like any treatment to counter a yeast infection, trial and error will tell the patient what best suits his or her needs.
