Julie, what Slate is talking about is basically changing the environment of the intestines back to its normal acidic ph. This is done by first lowering the number of Candida yeast in the intestines with a proper diet and antifungals. Shortly after starting this protocol, homemade kefir and probiotics are added to the mix. This is what will eventually change the pH environment where the Candida were previously living in bliss in the alkaline environment which we helped them create with bad diets and antibiotics.
The Protocol on the forum which includes a well planned Candida diet is basically what the forum members are using to treat their infestations in the manner I just described.
