This article will let you know about some things that give benefit to discourage candida overgrowth. The best water for candida sufferer in my opinion is distilled water. I bought a Polar Bear which is very dependable and affordable. If you don’t want to spend this kind of money, Wal-Mart has very good distilled water at a good price. If you are concerned with minerals, take a good green food. You can add Aerobic Oxygen to the distilled water to raise PH and provide additional oxygen.
Someone asked me how much aerobic oxygen I add to the distilled water. She also asked the type of green food I like, whether it is Spirulina or Chlorella. She wonders if there is a specific brand that is easier to absorb than others.
I add about 20 drops to a gallon just for regular drinking, but you need to add some extra if you are taking it for candida. I can handle a lot, up to 70 drops in one daily dose, but everybody can not tolerate this much. You need to find what is right for you by gradually increasing the amount, and you will know when you have reached the max. The suggested dosage is 20 drops 3 times a day, but I seem to get more benefit from one large dose.
There are a lot of good green food products on the market, but they are expensive. I have been mixing my own with bulk herbs from herbalcom. I don’t take Spirulina and Chlorella anymore due to concerns with mercury and I can’t use Alfalfa anymore due to the phytoestrogens in it. This gives some women real problems with the hormones and with men it made my prostate swell up. Alfalfa is loaded with minerals, but I’m going to eliminate it and continue with Wheat Grass and Barley Grass. I also add Milk Thistle, Maca Herb, and Slippery Elm.
I think on my next order I’m going to add Brewers Yeast, Horsetail (Shave grass), Beet Powder, Spinach, Oat Straw, Purple Dulse (Not supposed to have mercury), dandelion, Irish Moss, Ginger, Rose Hips, Bee Pollen, Lecithin, Hops, Plantain, and Marshmallow. I will mix 4 parts of Wheat Grass, 4 parts Barley Grass and 1 part each of all the other. I’m not real sure about the proportions, just experimenting.
