A pH of 5.0-6.0 is way too Acidic!
Most people do not understand how the body works let alone how Vit C really works!
And most people do not understand how that Bacteria and Fungi(yeast) compliment each other in the body or anywhere else!
So many people say things which are not true!
Vit C is an Acid, and it "only" works "IF" and because it may react against some Alkaline Minerals and Create an Electrical Release of Energy off of these Alkaline Minerals which the body may use!
But "IF" the body does not have "ANY" Alkaline Minerals in it's reserves or any Alkaline Minerals in the food which you may eat and which may be in your Digestive system when you may choose to take Vit C, then the Vit C may make your body more Acidic and make you feel Worse than in the beginning!
The Reason for your infections may be because of your body becomming too Acidic in the first place!
For an infection may be an Acidic condition of the body!
The "ONLY" way in which Vit C may help in this condition may be that you may have Alkaline Minerals in your Digestive system and that your digestive system is not strong enough and because of this your stomach is not producing enough Acids for it's digestive process to react against the Alkaline Minerals which may be in the foods which you may be eating and by taking Vit C this supplies some extra acids to help the stomach do it's job and create a Electrical Energy Release from the action of the Vit C reacting against the Alkaline Minerals!
Now "IF" you are having low stomach acid production, which is not providing proper Digestion, you may take One Tablespoonful of Apple Cider Vinegar along with one Tablespoonful of Blackstrap Molasses in 8oz of water and get much better results than by taking Vit C !
And the ACV and Blackstrap Molasses may provide your body with missing Alkaline Minerals, whereas the Vit C will not add any extra Alkaline Minerals of it's self!
Infection may not Live in an Alkaline environment of the proper Alkaline Mineral make up!!
Kidney stones and other such stones may be because a persons body has become to Acidic and this may allow for Alkaline Minerals to be removed from your bone structure in an attempt to Neutralize these Excess Acids where ever they may be in the body and then these compounds of neutralized Acids may settle out in the body where they are neutralized with the Alkaline Minerals, which may be what forms the stones and because the body does not have enough Complexed Carbohydrates these Acid deposits may not be removed from the body!
It may all be from a problem of becoming too Acidic and remaining too Acidic for too long of a time!
"ALL" Sickness and Disease may get it's begining from the body becoming too Acidic in the first place!
Smile Tis your choice.
