Eat lots of vegetables, low carb, and maybe even sauerkraut. Chew the vegetables well, because your saliva breaks them down.
"PB 8" from vitacost.com is around $12 per month's supply. I picked that one specifically for myself because it contains L. rhamnosus. Some would say that it's not good enough because it's not enteric coated and doesn't say "keep refrigerated" but i know personally it has made a tangible difference in my ability to tolerate dairy products. according to a medical text i own ("therapeutic microbiology") some types of probiotics make it safely into the small intestine without special coating. and you can refrigerate probiotics even if the bottle doesn't instruct you to.
Adrenals also support your thyroid thereby helping balance your hormones.
Seriously: look into fixing your adrenals.
As for conflicting info, you're absolutely right. There's a lot of info out there that isn't consistent. Keep a food journal and watch how your body reacts to things like starches and fruit. Only you can tell what's going on by how you react.

Being under a little stress is putting it mildly. I take a really good supplement to support my thyroid and my numbers have gone up a little (I was low "normal"), so that is good. I also take DHEA. I've been working with my gyn to get my testosterone, progesterone and estrogen balanced and we just can't seem to get it right. When I first went to her, I was low on everything. This was over a year ago. Right now my numbers are high and that shouldn't have happened. I have to go back in about 3 to 4 weeks to do labs again and see where we are. My gyn believes I am a "super absorber". I am getting very frustrated. I know this isn't helping my Candida issue. Tired of feeling like poo!
