Baking soda never seemed do to much for me other than calming my gut a little bit and raising my sodium levels in the morning. His therapy is based on direct injection. We ingest it and HCL mixes with it making it less effective. It doesnt seem to reach the deep rooted candida. I think baking soda has a different reaction when injected direct. (oxidizes the candida?) But I think i remember the stomach acid nuetralizes Most of the oxidizing action of baking soda making it almost useless for Candida "fungus" (taking orally).
