Candida and the power of green superfoods

When I had my 3-year period with candida (and the beginnings of interstitial cystitis) it was not a fun time, but I learned a lot. At one point I was invited to attend a workshop where a woman who had been cured of her own breast cancer was talking about the importance of PH balance. I didn’t know much about it and hadn’t made the connection yet, but she intrigued me and I went. it turned out it was Really Fascinating and made sense to me. pH balance is more important than you thought. I guess you can think of it this way. Pools, if we’re not diligent about tracking PH readings, will start to grow nasty, ugly bacteria. Our bodies too. If we feed our body with acidic foods and thoughts, we will create an acidic environment. Yeast, candida, and even cancer cells change in relation to their environment.

Since I’ve been battling candida for so long, I decided it would be a good idea to get my PH tested. I got some PH test strips and tested my urine and to my horror I couldn’t even see a reading! The lowest reading was 5.0 (a healthy body should show a reading of around 6.5, ultimately 7.3). I couldn’t see a reading at all. I took it over and over again. The saliva reading was somewhat better, but I compared mine to others and it was significantly lower and more acidic. This blew me away because I drink juice every day so I thought I had you covered. He obviously didn’t have it covered or else he wouldn’t have been battling candida for so long. I had already changed my diet, was taking a good probiotic every day and even using antifungals. I didn’t think there was anything else I could do.

Well, I had heard and read about green superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, barley grass, wheat grass, oat grass and how they raise PH levels so I decided to experiment. I started out using chlorella and spirulina and then added others and kept track of my PH. It didn’t take long (a few days) before I began to notice my IC symptoms fading away. I also noticed that my candida symptoms were becoming less and less noticeable!

This was about a year ago and I have continued to do well. So I maintain a regimen of watching my food, taking a probiotic every day (occasionally I forget, but it doesn’t seem to matter) and I hardly ever need the antifungal anymore. I put the green powder in my vegetable juice in the morning and feel like I’m drinking a glass of “green vitality”. Is awesome.

It seems to me that this has been the missing link in controlling candida and interstitial cystitis.
