Wrong. Bile with a pH of 9.0 is 100 times more alkaline than neutral. This is not "fungus friendly".
And please don't post links to more links, with articles written from other articles. I encourage you to think for yourself. Let's look at an actual study's conclusion:
"Effect of pH on in vitro yeast-mycelial dimorphism in genitourinary Candida spp"
Conclusion: "At all three pH levels C. glabrata, C. guilliermondii, C. kefyr and C. parapsilosis isolates (57.1% of the seven Candida species) did not produce any hyphae/filaments (true hyphae) at all (Figs.1 and 2) whereas some isolates of the other species did at pH 5.6 and 7.0. Candida stellatoidea had both yeast andhyphalforms at all pH values(Table1). There was no significant difference in the effect of pH 5.6 and 7.0 on morphology of each of these three species which grew hyphae." www.niseb.org/journals/brc/brc21/brc2140709065.pdf
There are several strains of candida that are already in the hyphal form at pH as low as 5.6. There is one strain that can be in the hyphal form at anypH range. And once again: There was no significant difference in the effect of pH 5.6 and 7.0 on morphology of each of these three species which grew hyphae.
Good, now combine what you have just read with info from your favorite website, wikipedia: "The pH in the colon varies between 5.5 and 7 (slightly acidic to neutral)."
You have present in a healthy colon conditions in which candida already thrives in its fungal form. Read again: There was no significant difference in the effect of pH 5.6 and 7.0 on morphology of each of these three species which grew hyphae. All the fuss raised about "alkalinity" switching on the fungus gene is completely irrelevant. Not to mention that pH of 6.5 to7 is not alkaline, it is by definition acidic to neutral. This is exactly why impaired bile flow exposes the small intestines to candida overgrowth: because without the exposure to HIGH alkalinity of 8.8 to 9, candida thrives. And this is exactly why restoring bile flow through liver flushing eliminates candida from the small intestines.
Dr. Simoncini is one person who uses direct applications of sodium bicarbonate through selective arteriography and endoscopic applications to kill candida. Whether or not you agree with his other ideas about cancer does not change the fact the sodium bicarbonate kills candida because of its high pH of 8.4 to 8.9. Healthy bile can be as high as 9. This is certainly not "fungus friendly". I don't know how you managed to come up with that one.
Your opinions are wrong, your information and conclusions are misleading and should not be posted on a candida support forum. Not only are you wrong, but the manner in which you express your wrong opinions is derisive which is why you should be banned from ALL OF CUREZONE and not just the candida support forum.
