Thanks Hv for your input on the alkaline quackery. Its been stated that plants in nature dont try to kill candida, but they rather try to inhibit it/keep it under control. This is what our friendly bacteria does as well.
HV-- What are your favorite herbs to inhibit/help with candida?
The flora need fibers to ferment to generate the acids that keep the C. albicans under control. Studies have shown that vegetable gums (guar, konjac, xanthan, etc.) work the best. Although, I still prefer rice bran or oat bran since they are also a good source of B vitamins and rice bran contains beneficial gamma oryzanol.
I like kefirs as a means to introduce some of the beneficial bacterial cultures back in to the digestive system. They just need to be fermented long enough first to get rid of the sugar. Other freshly made cultured foods can also be used.
