A byproduct of animal protein metabolism is ammonia which is toxic to the body, and it creates an added workload for the liver which is already overworked by the Candida toxins alone including ammonia. This is saying that Candida albicans create ammonia gases on their own which is environmentally safe for the Candida. In other words, ammonia is a benefit to the environment of the intestines as far as making it more hospitable for Candida albicans to thieve. Every time you eat an animal product, you create this ammonia which helps Candida to survive. The higher the protein content, the more ammonia is created.
Most people will think that I’m being overly cautious with all that I’ve written, but personally this is how I believe I cured the Candida infestation I had fully in less than two months once I got the diet fine tuned to the way I’ve described it several times on the forum. I’m not saying that eating chicken every day will recreate the infestation again, I’m stating all of this because of the possibilities.
Many months after a complete cure I’m still not eating red meat or pork. I eat fish usually two times a week, sometimes three, and occasionally chicken once a week, often none at all. I suppose I eat young fish or wild salmon more often because I believe it’s more beneficial to our overall health than chicken. On a daily basis, for protein I depend on organic eggs and dried beans for the most part.
Able, how much protein are you taking a day? I was of the impression that a high protein diet would be fine since I weight train, now I’m not so sure.
Is there something that can be done to get rid of the ammonia?
