In this research abstract, you’ll see that it takes anywhere from 22 to 59 hours for fungal candida to penetrate the intestinal wall following antibiotic use – http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1439-0507.1991.tb00662.x/abstract
Other research shows that fungal candida only spends a few hours in the bloodstream. This is due to the strong presence of white blood cells in the blood.
Antibiotics are the quickest way to get systemic fungal candida. They create the triggers that cause the conversion of the normal yeast form of candida to its pathogenic, problematic fungal form – destruction of competitive inhibition of bacteria; pH shift to a more alkaline pH; and hemorrhaging of intracellular bacterial components that directly stimulate the yeast-fungus conversion; direct conversion from an antibiotic; etc.
