I’ve decided to start doing enemas as I’ve read a lot lately that they speed up the whole process of getting rid of Candida, and are
one of the most important things to ridding oneself of Candida completely…
Thanks for the humor, it’s exhibited far too little on the forum sometimes.
Can you post the link that contains the statement above that I’ve underlined? I seriously doubt that you’ve found any substantial research containing a statement such as that.
First, you can’t rid the body completely of Candida, and even if you could, it would be harmful to your health. The benign form of Candida yeast is found in all human beings just like beneficial bacteria are. So if you’ve always had and are always going to have a certain amount of Candida in your body, what would suddenly cause it to become a dangerous fungal pathogen? This happens when the environment in the intestines and colon become too alkaline. The alkalinity environment will turn the Candida growth gene on which allows the yeast to turn into its fungal form known as Candida albicans. This fungal form of Candida is what becomes the overgrowth or what we call the Candida infestation.
Second, I would love for whoever wrote the statement that an enema is “one of the most important things to ridding oneself of Candida completely” to explain how an enema which will barely reach the end of the colon is going to remove billions and billions of Candida cells all along the length of the intestines when the combined length of the large and small intestines is approximately 25 feet in an average size adult. If nothing else can prove how ridiculous that statement is, using common sense and logic should.
Thinking about the benign Candida turning into its fungal form when the intestines and colon become too alkaline, how do you suppose an enema is going to change the environment of the intestines and colon back to acidic which is the only way of removing the infestation and turning the growth gene off? It isn’t. In fact, all it can possibly do is to remove a tiny fraction of the entire infestation in the colon along with the beneficial bacteria from the colon where they’re needed to change the alkaline environment back to the normal acidic form. If you think that this could possibly slow down the progress of the treatment, you’re probably right.
You continue repeating again and again what there isn’t any conclusive true about. The mutation of candida albicans to its pathogenic form isn’t ph dependable even when the alkaline Ph favors it. It is time for you to open your mind about it. There are hundreds of medical papers citing other causes such as genetic changes, temperature, environmental changes linked to other causes that allow the mutation of candida albicans to germ tubes. It looks like you have read too much HV in Curezone when he has tried to imposes this theory of the acid/alkaline ph, but nobody following him has got any result. You always cites scientific papers, well, there are many articles talking about what induce the yeast to mutate to fungus. In fact, the science has been battling to understand it without conclusive results. There are papers citing one thing, other trying to demonstrate others, and then. I have read different studies about this topic but any of them totally conclusive. The closest thing according to this group of scientific is it:
Anyway, because this article exists, I am not going to repeat it is the cause of the mutation. I recognize it is still no clear and probably a combination of factors where the Ph has some influence favor the transition. I also get upset when I read people telling categorically this is it and that. I have dedicated thousands of hours to research this syndrome and never tell something for sure.
On the other hand, candida albicans is an intruder in the human body. It isn’t normal part of the flora but a colonizer without any recognized benefit as a part of the human microbiota. No all people have candida in the intestines in any form. Candida is part of the mucosal flora of around 80% of the population, but it is well known there are some who doesn’t have it in any form. There is a Russian article from long time ago citing the spiral of colonization of candida in human tissues for many years.
I have no doubt a treatment with diet and some natural substances brings result for many people battling candida overgrowth. The overgrowth is totally different in everyone. Sometimes is light, but many times is severe. The fact that a diet and natural substances give result to some doesn’t mean that it will do it in every case. When the overgrowth is severe, a treatment like this do almost nothing.
I have had enough time knowing and sharing experiences with hundreds battling this syndrome to know it. I have seen people do all, I mean all without consistent results.
I see your dedication noble, and your efforts and time to help others in the forum is something with a real value. I don’t do it with the objective of contradict you, at the end you will end stronger and better prepared with every single discussion about it, and I, honestly, don’t need it. I have accumulated what I believe is more than enough to do everything possible so far to recover my health, but I don’t negate there is always something to learn.
