I think in general I don’t know what Im talking about with Ph and I am not specialist on this subject. Dr. Mccombs mentioned that candida actually thrives in an alkaline environment (like you’ve said). I’ve listened to about 5 hours of his radio shows and youtube videos now…
Anyways, what I am wondering is…was my body very alkaline at one point to create a “good” environment for candida to grow? And if so, why is my body “too acidic” now…is it because I am healthier?
Also, it seems that all of or many of the supplements recommended are acidic in nature; this means that your body needs to be more acidic to fight candida I guess unless they do the opposite and alkalize the body.
So if my ph is 6.2 now, and it needs to be 6.8-7.35 (healthy ph) why are acids and acidic food recommended for the diet? If I get to that ph is that unhealthy?
As far as my statement about the costs; there are cheap and expensive ways to do it. If you don’t buy organic it’ll cut your costs in half. If you don’t buy chicken, that makes it even cheaper.
Expensive organic food items from raster’s shopping list:
$10 chicken sausage
$12 almond meal (last 2 weeks)
$8 coconut flour (last 2 weeks)
$12 for 3 cartons of eggs (1 week)
$20 worth veggies
$10 stevia (lasts long time tho)
$5 expensive toothpaste (1 mo)
$10 for 2 tubs greek yogurt
But man this really adds up:
$30 probiotic/2x month
$30 antifungals/avg. month (for like 4-5 different kinds)
$20 undeceonic acid/caprylic acid/month
vitamin c (cheap)
grape bitters ($20) (last a long time)
vitamin b ($20-30) (1 month supply)
homeopathics (not everyone else is taking these)
