People... Please stop saying that Candida thrives in an acid environment. This is wrong. Candia Thrives because of LACK OF ACID or high PH. Candida thrives because either:
1) Antibiotics kill the ACID producing bacteria in our intestines. Which means your digestive tract becomes ALKALINE! Not Acidic.
2) Your stomach stops producing ACID! Read up on Hypochloridia. This is an actual medically diagnosed ailment that is documented and proven!
3) Your immune system is compromised (HIV) and Candida kills the ACID producing bacteria thus taking over your digestive tract.
So please, please, please.. Quit telling the new people on here that they need to get their digestive PH Alkaline to get rid of Candida. This is absolutely WRONG! To get rid of Candida for good we must first kill the fungus then implant ACID producing BACTERIA! i.e. Acidophilus.
It wouldnt hurt to get your stomach PH tested as well. If your stomach PH is high (Alkaline) as mine was tested to be, you will never fully get rid of Candida. It will always return.
