Sodium Bicarbonate has antifungal activity not linked to its alkaline Ph. Yeast cells can live in a broad Ph range, including acid and alkaline. Don’t pay attention to it. Your problem isn’t a Ph unbalance neither you will eradicate it trying to change your intestinal Ph.
Candida sufferers don’t catch common flu because they are Th2 over-active. This means your immune response is toward to an antibody production. This overactivity in the Th2 arm is protecting you against any extracellular intruder. However, their intracellular defenses are very low allowing candida to growth. A balanced immune system is necessary to protect us against all the health offenders. You need a Th1/Th2 balanced immune system. If any of these arms work chronically polarized, we are going to have health problems.
I hope this help.!

I have to do some research then on Th-1/Th-2 balance.
I am a huge newb, so all of this is foreign to me but I am an avid researcher so I am on this today!
