I decided to look more into cider vinegar,even though many have said you cannot place importance on a spit test.
The first thing that came to mind while reading this was that there are no studies that prove conclusively that apple cider vinegar has an antifungal role *in candida* .
I looked, I swear. If anyone has links to conclusive evidence,im all ears.
What I did find however was that many diets out there (GAPS, body ecology,ect) use apple cider vinegar to break down biofilm.
Apple cider has different phenolic acids that allegedly break this down…. why is so hard to find the studies supporting this? Apparently its used on an empty stomach for kids with autism too,since candida issues are a common occurrence there.
I guess im posting this in hopes that I may directed to something that will encourage its use.
Its super cheap, and if effective, would eliminate the need for these bad tasting,yucky enzymes.
Not sure what to say about the coconut oil, however. A part of me just wants to blame the fact that its in oil form, that the spit gets bound by the oil.
I use it and love it, but im not getting any die-off from it or anything, so im not sure how far its effect reaches.
