Thank you for your post, and your explanation seems to make sense; but your diet, or the way you contracted Candida is fairly normal among Candida sufferers, and they can still cure their infestation with bacteria flora which produce acid in the lower intestines, which in turn will destroy the Candida albicans. In theory, it makes sense that if what you say is correct, then you would not benefit by taking probiotics as this will only add to the acidic environment that you feel you created.
One argument that a lot of people use for their theory of an alkaline environment of the intestines is the claim that if we were meant to eat acidic foods or have an acidic digestive system, then the healthiest foods would be acid forming instead of the opposite being true. But in reality what we would need to cut out is the fresh, green vegetables. Most people do not realize that we can eat a perfectly healthy diet with a minimal or no acidic foods and still have the acidic environments in the areas that need it. The reason is because we obtain most of the acids we need from vitamins and specifically the minerals in vegetables which combine with hydrogen to form different types of acids in our body. For example, hydrochloric acid is a combination of HCL and hydrogen, sulphuric acid is sulphur and oxygen combined with hydrogen. Even the B vitamin chlorine combined with iodine, phosphorous and hydrogen form acids in the body.
Something I failed to mention in the previous post; scientists studying Candida albicans reported that the fungi produce ammonia in the digestive tract which creates an environment that is hospitable to their existence. I imagine that most of us are aware that ammonia is a purely alkaline liquid.
I wanted to clarify the message I posted earlier; I wasn’t trying to claim that the human body in general should be more acidic, but only that a healthy pH balance of the intestines (where the Candida cell walls are located) is naturally acidic, and if this is conducive to Candida growth as many theories state, then every healthy person should according to theory have a Candida albicans infestation.
The average pH throughout the body should remain fairly balanced, but the intestines are and should be normally more acidic in order to protect us from pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and fungi such as Candida albicans.
