Seems like there’s some okay advice in there (I only skimmed it), but it’s a typical crackpot view laced with unsubstantiated opinion and alarmist nonsense that’s all too common on the web. If you ever wonder why your doctor doesn’t take candida seriously, you’ve just presented Exhibit A. Just look at the “references” at the bottom.
This quote in particular is ridiculous. We don’t know anything near what we need to know about the role of bacteria in health, and the fact that the author felt qualified to write this shows his level of arrogant ignorance.
Our bodies are also smart enough to create any probiotics, i.e. “good bacteria” when, and “if,” they are needed.
He uses the example of l. acidophilous causing tooth decay to “prove” LAB are detrimental to health. He doesn’t see how the mouth and colon are *somewhat* different environments, and how simplistic generalisations make people look stupid.
This, in addition to the fact that a healthy small and large intestine are alkaline.
Then we have the above quote. Wikipedia could’ve told you this is wrong. Lamentable.
