Diet Clarification

Posted by Jess (MPLS, MN) on 07/25/2007

I have been trying to deal with a candida overload for the last 2 years. I believe much of the overload has been due to stress and has now lead to recurrent infections of pelvic strep B. I have been seeing a chriro who has me on coconut oil, oil of oregano, vit A and probiotics. It has been tough sticking to the diet part (no coffee is the worst). I am throughly confused regarding what I should and shouldn't eat: some say no tomatoes, lemons cranberry others say load up on acids. I know not to eat sugar, even though it is tough and now it seems after reading everything here I shouln't be eating fruits either. There are so much contradictory advise that I don't really know what to do. What I am doing hasn't helped yet, but I am going to keep trying.

If following so much contradictory advice is hard for you, generally avoid sugar, white bread and oily fried food. Those can be replaced with stevia, whole rye bread, and baked foods.

Most improvement should be helped with taking the lemon and baking soda remedy. The remedy is 8 teaspoon of lemon juice freshly squeezed plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water.

The remedy may be synergist if fishes are eaten such as baked fishes, since they are high in amines, which breaks into trace ammonium compounds in the body and are antifungal in nature.

Generally a pinch of borax added to a drinking water, which is generally equal to 1/16 teaspoon of borax in 1 glass of water for a couple of days out of a week should help.

If viruses is a problem, usually a zinc gluconate 50 mg plus 250 mg of magnesium citrate or magnesium gluconate would help reduce those bacterial load, but the most important thing at least for me is to get my urine pH to at least 7.0 - which is by the way is neutral.

Ted, I checked my Ph finally and my saliva is 7.2-7.4, however my urine is 5.8-6.0. What can I do to bring my urine Ph up? Why does my saliva seem balanced but the urine Ph is so low?
