Acidity & Alkalinity Balancing [pH balancing]

Balancing acidity and alkalinity in the body is a non-issue when it comes to health. In fact it has become a fad that is totally unnecessary, and can in fact be harmful. Dr. Weston Price points out in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration that good health is more related to the mineral activator content in nutrition. He writes: "It is my belief that much harm has been done through the misconception that acidity and alkalinity were something apart from minerals and other elements. Many food faddists have undertaken to list foods on the basis of their acidity and alkalinity without the apparent understanding of the disturbances that are produced by, for example, condemning a food because it contains phosphoric acid, not appreciating that phosphorus can only be acid until it is neutralized . . ." Note: Phosphoric acid and phosphorus, are minerals that are found in protein foods, including meats and eggs. For more information read Acid–Alkaline Balance By Dr. Weston A. Price and Bookallil’s Study – pH Of The Blood: Acid-Base Balance.

Colonics, Professional

Colonics, or enemas, done at home by an individual are quite safe and beneficial because they are not invasive, and only involve the large intestine. However, professional colonics can be very invasive, often reaching into the small intestines, which causes more damage than good.

Some professionals also recommend too many colonics be done within a short amount of time, which interferes with the important functions of the large colon, i.e. balancing water and electrolytes in the body, and the making of some B vitamins and vitamin K. Enemas should only be done 4 to 5 days apart, and they should not continued on a long-term basis.

Hormones, Birth Control Pills, Steroids, Etc.

Includes hormone replacement therapy (estrogen and progesterone), testosterone, birth control pills, steroids, prednisone, bio-identical hormones, and all other kinds of hormones because they cause many health issues by upsetting the normal balance of hormones in the body, see Women’s Health Issues & Treatments to learn what happens when hormones are taken.


Fasting is intended to give the body a rest and/or to allow it to clear out toxins and wastes. However, while your body is fasting it is also not getting the nutrients it needs for healing and energy. It is more important to give the body what it needs to affect healing, allowing it to cleanse and detoxify itself in its own time.

Every day between meals your body needs to fast so it can assimilate and utilize the nutrients without having to direct its energies towards digesting more food. That is why snacking is not recommended.

Some people do a type of fasting where they only consume the Bee’s Egg Drink for a few days at a time. That is not considered "true fasting" and it wouldn’t cause problems because you would be getting plenty of nutrients and energy.

Inulin/FOS also goes by the name of Neosugar, Alant Starch, Atlanta Starch, Alantin, Dahlin, Helenin, and Diabetic Sugar.

Inulin tastes sweet, cannot be digested by humans. See Prebiotics FOS & Inulin Not Recommended.

Liver, Kidney, & Gallbladder Cleansing, Cleanses & Flushes

Cleansing and cleanses are not recommended at any point during the candida program. Such treatments include liver, kidney, gall bladder or bowel flushes or cleanses, except for self-administered Enemas.

Liver, kidney and gall bladder cleanses or flushes are dangerous because they dump too many toxins into the body at one time, and people who are sick are not able to handle it. There have been cases where people have ended up with life threatening conditions caused by such cleanses, or flushes, finding it necessary to be treated in the emergency room.

Also, liver and gall bladder flushes can release liver and galls stones into the bile ducts which can block and tear them, requiring emergency surgery.

Snacking & Eating More than 3 Meals Per Day

Your body only needs 3 balanced meals per day, and some people do better only eating 2 meals per day. Snacking between meals or eating more often is not healthy.

Your body needs the time between meals to digest, absorb and utilize the nutrients without having its energies directed towards digesting more food. If you eat enough food at mealtime, two to three times a day, it will sustain you until the next meal.
