I read this post the other day, but didn’t want to start another debate so I didn’t bother to comment. But since you asked, I did notice a few things in the tread, specifically:
He mentioned using Lugols Iodine which I experienced with during my research, I could never tell a difference in the symptoms one way or another the entire time I was taking it.
He wrote: “Take Ted’s Lime/Lemon + baking soda + water alkalizing Remedies at least 2 times a day as recommended.”
Most of the members know that I am completely against taking any type of alkalizing drink. The whole idea of the treatment is to renew the acidity of the intestines. An alkalizing drink will pass directly into the intestines therefore potentially preventing the environment from making the change back to an acidic state and at the same time prolonging the treatment. Even though he talks about the importance of alkalizing the body, he then advises you to take coconut oil, and even states that the reason is because it contains lauric acid, caproic acid, capric acid, caprylic acid and myristic acid which as he states correctly is going to destroy the Candida. These are all acids as their name implies, and when taken continuously, they will cause an acidic environment is exactly what destroys the Candida. Sounds a little like a contradiction to me.
Taking Methylene Blue seems to me a ridiculous way to take an antifungal, especially when the natural ones are so easy to take and safe. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not taking anything that has the potential of turning the whites of my eyes blue.
I’ve never agreed with taking a B complex pill. The ratios are always incorrect, plus the body can become addicted to the outrageous amounts in the pills.
He talks like the die-off toxins in the body are nothing to worry about and basically a good sign. I totally disagree with that as I believe that the toxins can be just as dangerous to the body as the Candida itself if not controlled.
I don’t remember reading anything about probiotics in his post, but maybe he just didn’t stress the importance, at any rate I don’t want to take time to go back and read his entire post again, so I’ll just say that I don’t think he stressed the full importance of probiotics and kefir in a treatment for Candida. After all, this is what is going to cure the infestation in the end.
