Could Maple Syrup and Baking Soda Make Candida Worse?

Candida- Maple syrup /baking soda

Dear Ted, I am fighting a systemic yeast infection which has just about taken over my life with pain and sickness. I have been diagnosed with Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalga, menneires disease, Tmj, and Systemic Candida. My question is after trying many different remiedies I thought I had found one that seemed to be working. Then, I read that it is not something you agree with. I have been taking maple syrup and baking soda... 3:1 ratio. I read in the cancer section that it could in fact make cancer worse. Is this true for candida too? I have been taking it for about two weeks and I am now very concerned. Even though I do not have cancer, could it make the Candida worse or even worse change the fungus into cancer? Since, cancer can be a fungus? Thank you

Re: Maple Syrup and Baking soda.

Candida feeds on sugar, regardless of with or without baking soda. The baking soda gets neutralized far to quickly to do any dent to the candida for the cancer, but the sugar has loads of calories that the fungus or cancer can feed onto. It makes the problem worse. The best form of alkalizing is to take both the baking soda and the potassium bicarbonate, or a stronger form sodium carbonate and potassium carbonate. Fungus doesn't get killed easily and the ones that Alternative medicine community are familiar with is Dr. Simoncini's work, which uses Baking soda.

Unfortunately baking soda's buffering ability is very limited and cannot reach certain areas such as extremities and internal organs, bones, etc. It's alkaline effects do not last long either, such as 1-3 hours on the average for a person who is acidic.

There is a simpler way to treat candida, which is basically avoiding all sugar, fruit juices, calcium supplements (fungus feeds on them!), and oily foods (blocks body's immune system).

There are a couple of things I used to get rid of the fungus, when those foods are avoided, first is alkalizing, taking baking soda 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon after every meal, and once before bed time in 1/2 to 1 glass of water, which is relatively low dose and a mild remedy, the other is all drinking water a person will drink shall have hydrogen peroxide 3% 1/2 to 1 capfuls per liter of drinking water, added together with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in each of the drinking water. The hydrogen peroxide kills the fungus by oxidation.

The other thing I used is to add borax, to the same drinking water, which is 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon per liter of drinking water. Borax flushes out candida and fungus in general.

Finally, if desperation is there, then avoid dinner, this will get digestive juices recirculated into the body systems and digest the fungus that way. Candida feeds on sugar, and hence it's important the blood sugar is always below 100, above that they will take advantage of the extra food. Finally when eating food, our foods, ESPECIALLY our drinks, are sugar laden and so it's important to avoid sweet fruits and sweet fruit juices, and drink plenty of water during meals, in which case it will reduce the sugar concentration that goes to the blood. And if a person does have sugar problems, then it's important to reduce the blood sugar to below 100. Three things I always used for sure (besides alkalization), is 1) chromium supplements 5 mg in form of chromium chloride 2) lecithin granulated 1 teaspoon with every meal 3) vitamin B3 niacinamide before sleep, usually 250-500 mg.

In any case, maple syrup is useless in treatment of cancer and candida, it feeds on sugar and the alkalinity of the baking soda is too weak to kill it. I have seen too many people getting worse off after taking this, especially diabetics.

Ted, regarding oxidation, would club soda and baking soda kill candida? I have used club soda to kill fire ants here. I hope you are doing well following the stroke you suffered. I haven't been on EC for a while.

Ted had a stroke? I hope he knew to take dmso right away and every 15 minutes the 1st day.

EC: Yes, he had a stroke but in no way was he capable of telling anyone to give him DMSO.  He was rushed to the ER where they performed critical brain surgery so he wouldn't die.
