Jake, thanks for the great info. Just wondering what is HCL ?? I also have candida problems. Of course the white tongue, constant dry and red irritated eyes, fatigue, digestive type proplems (questionable lactose intellerance), and so on. Have been seeing some doctors for acouple of years. They cant seem to find any problems. Looks like my son has the same problem. I've bought some ph strips last week and it seems I'm very acidic (6.0- 6.6). Doesnt seem to want to stabilize above 7 for some reason. I'm checking urine. I wonder if this has something to do with some of my problems?? Thanks, JP.
