I get the feeling that what I’m saying is still not being completely understood.
I have not and am not stating that the body as a whole should be or is more acidic than alkaline, but what I am saying is that the intestines – where the Candida build their colonies/walls and thrive – in a normal, healthy body is more acidic than alkaline.
The area of the intestines only becomes more alkaline when the Candida begin to multiply as the foods which feed them are eaten more often (we all know what they are by now).
The reason for this as I explained in a previous post is that the Candida continually produces ammonia gas which is an alkaline gas. And as the intestines become more alkalized, the Candida continues to multiple and thrive because they are continually recreating the perfect environment for their infestation with the alkaline gases of ammonia.
The only way to stop the spread is with the opposite effect, or a more acidic environment.
This is when the beneficial bacteria become the hero by producing the acids which will eventually destroy the infestation.
Something else just occurred to me, if all it takes is to alkalize the intestines and/or body in order to destroy the Candida, then why can’t the Candida diet alone destroy the infestation? There are no recorded cases where a Candida infestation was ever cured with the diet alone.
So to repeat, I’m talking “only” about the intestines in my posts when I write “more acidic” not the entire body. And Raster, I’m sorry but I cannot possibly see how your intestines themselves could have been over-acidic if you contracted Candida.
