    for many, maybe most of us. The type of infection seems to vary from person to person, I guess depending on what they are more vulnerable to.

    I've had chronic yeast infections for over 7 yrs. I din't have problems before this, but 9 mths of abx made me susceptible and now I can't shake it.

    Dear Ruthie,
    Have you had any root canals? I had 2 doctors that were convinced that there was a defnite connection.

    I have 4 areas of bone marrow infection from root canals. I can't take antibiotics, or have them cut out surgically so I do the best I can. My doctors did a whole study on this subject.

    I've written about this a lot. You can do a search, if you like. I'm having a bad Rheumatoid Arthritis day, so I cant write much.

    Good luck,
    Terry
