so maybe it was NOT an acid imbalance that is the main cause - it was definitely contributing to the white tongue, but going on teh alkaline diet was only a temporary cure, and as soon as i ate anything acidic, everything seemed to go back to where i had started.
I still believe that this is candida, and have started on a threelac regimen and watching my diet. I have been taking way more than the recommended dose of Threelac (6 a day), but i have not felt this good in years! I have energy and clarity of thought that I havent felt since i was a kid, this is wonderful! at the same time though, my bad breath has become worse, same with my eczema - i hope these are just die off effects and soon it will be resolved. How have you guys been doing with this? keep me posted. (I still have white tongue)
