This article goes against the protocol and a lot of it seems to make sense.
Here are some of the sections that I’m interested in getting the experts’ feedback on”
“Candida is the “result” of disease, just like heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, asthma, obesity, etc. because of these primary reasons for ALL failing health…
In other words, germs, bacteria, fungi (including candida and cancer) and everything in-between are the “result,” and not the “cause”, of disease! If “germs” are there as the result, not the cause, then to treat germs with antibiotics (toxins) is in fact very wrong! Unfortunately, this misconception about disease affects all aspects of modern medicine today.”
“The truth is that die–off symptoms and Herxheimer Reactions are not caused by bugs being killed off or dying. What is actually happening in the body is in… “The intensity of the reaction reflects the intensity of inflammation present.” The fact IS that inflammation is a natural immune system reaction to the presence of toxins, and antibiotics and antifungal drugs are toxic/poisonous to the body! Therefore, any symptoms and reactions are caused by the body itself, which is evidence it is working trying hard to detoxify antibiotic toxins.
Such symptoms and reactions are “NOT caused” by killing off bugs at all. They are created by the body in response to toxins/poisons like it reacts to any kinds of toxins or poisons, therefore such reactions are because of being poisoned!
The body creates symptoms and reactions (inflammation) in response to all toxins/poisons, i.e. drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vaccines, mercury fillings in teeth, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals in foods, personal care and cleaning products, etc. In other words, the body works hard at minimizing the damage caused by toxins/poisons such as antibiotics and other drugs by creating inflammation and other immune responses in order to get rid of the poison. However, our governments allow big businesses (medical, drug, food, agricultural, etc.) to poison people legally by allowing toxins and poisons to be used!”
“One of the most common probiotic supplements is called Lactobacillus Acidophilus (L. Acidophilus), which is one of the “supposedly” good bacteria in the body. However, L. Acidophilus is one of the bacteria created in the mouth that causes Dental Plaque to build up. Dental plaque is what we are trying to brush off of our teeth and it causes Dental Caries (tooth decay/cavities), gum disease such as Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease, etc. Acids produced by bacteria in the mouth break down, or demineralize, enamel, dentin, and cementum (similar to bone, which covers roots). So the question is, how can L. Acidophilus be called “good bacteria” when it causes such damage?”
“On page 432 Dr. Price writes about a girl who had 42 cavities and was put on a nutritious diet, along with 1/2 teaspoon of a high vitamin A butter oil mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of a very high–vitamin cod liver oil. Dr. Price writes: “Important light is thrown on this case by both the chemical analysis of the saliva and the bacterial count. The inorganic phosphorus (a mineral found in meats and eggs) of the saliva . . . was changed from +19.1 to -29.5. The bacterial count change for L. acidophilous was from 680,000 to none.” [Note: In a previous paragraph he explains that phosphorus needed for teeth and bones is higher in the saliva of people with cavities and who have poor health.]”
Clearly, the article goes into more details. Please read it and respond to the spacifics that go against this protocol.

You’re kidding, right?
Seeing that it was rather long, I just copied and pasted the ‘article’ into Microsoft Word and it took up 50 pages. Not sure about the others, but personally I don’t have time to read someone’s opinion just to give my thoughts on it. And considering the source of the opinion, I wouldn’t waste my time for that reason alone. I’ve read enough of Bee Wilder’s rambling in the past to know it’s not at all interesting to me and sometimes rather non-factual in content.
If you want to post the specifics as related to our protocol, I’ll have a look at it.

Seems like there’s some okay advice in there (I only skimmed it), but it’s a typical crackpot view laced with unsubstantiated opinion and alarmist nonsense that’s all too common on the web. If you ever wonder why your doctor doesn’t take candida seriously, you’ve just presented Exhibit A. Just look at the “references” at the bottom.
This quote in particular is ridiculous. We don’t know anything near what we need to know about the role of bacteria in health, and the fact that the author felt qualified to write this shows his level of arrogant ignorance.
Our bodies are also smart enough to create any probiotics, i.e. “good bacteria” when, and “if,” they are needed.
He uses the example of l. acidophilous causing tooth decay to “prove” LAB are detrimental to health. He doesn’t see how the mouth and colon are *somewhat* different environments, and how simplistic generalisations make people look stupid.
This, in addition to the fact that a healthy small and large intestine are alkaline.
Then we have the above quote. Wikipedia could’ve told you this is wrong. Lamentable.
If you want to read about health from a non-crackpot perspective, check out some of these blogs instead.May 18, 2012 at 2:37 pm #82276

There is no word to describe this article.
I’m experiencing die-off symptoms just by eliminating sugar, yeast, and limiting carbs. I have a cup of yogurt every day, which isnt very new to my diet. No other probiotics.
