I see. Thanks for clarifying. Since we naturally have alkaline blood, an acidic stomach, alkaline small intestines and an acidic colon, I suppose I can’t say the Western diet “promotes an overly acidic bodily pH,” but rather it just upsets the balance, and certain foods, like lemon and lime, do a good job of restoring it. I’ve been meaning to buy some lemons to spice up my salads anyway 🙂
A lot written about nutrition is so reductive that it leads me to simplistic viewpoints like acid vs alkaline. Do you have any books or resources that you would recommend? I still don’t have a clear idea of exactly how candida operates. I’ve read the Wiki and a candida book, but they didn’t give me the kind of understanding I prefer to have.
Thanks for taking the time to reply anyway.
