Okay I completely understand what your saying I just found the baking soda speeded the whole healing process up for me. I dont want to spread confusion or state facts I only wanted to help with what I found worked to eliminate candida for me and my body to begin healing properly. If someone had given me this advice over ten years ago it could of saved me going through living hell most of my adult life….I was close to suicide and had serious mental health issues all from this awful disease. Anyway I dont want to cause any confusion and I totally agree with your points. Will look to edit my post and make it clearer for people to understand what I mean. I understand that candida may return so I need to continue to work at getting my whole body in balance, strengthening my immune system and staying stress free.
