Ahhh a Bee Wilder enthusiast. The problem with candida is that is has to do with the bugs itself more than it does the pile of manure. Many perfectly healthy people that don't have much of a pile of manure can get candida very shortly after a strong round of antibiotics. Bee does not understand the science of gut ecology and that we "host' gut bugs rather the "body producing them as needed". There is no research indicating that the body can produce bugs(beneficial flora) as needed, nor is there any organ responsible for the production of good bacteria. More and more research is coming out with the complex science of our gut ecosystem
The source of candida is when we lose the amount of good bugs (that we host) that keep the bad bugs in check. Its mostly a battle of bugs without the so called manure pile. Although a rotting manure pile in the colon does not help your health in general/or candida. There are many people that eat very unhealthy that don't have much of any candida issues. But as soon as you put them on antibiotics/antibacterials their candida comes on very fast. I did not have serious candida issues until I started doing anti-bacterials and during this time I was eating healthy. Being healthy is not only just eating proper and getting the right nutrients, but also having a balanced gut ecosystem in the GI tract. I went on her diet for 5 months and did not help my condition at all. Actually the high fat and protein diet was giving me so much Gut inflammation that I almost has to quit my job because of it. She does not realize that once candida dominates the majority of the gut and turns fungal that it can produce damaging lipase and protease enzymes which can cause further gut inflammation. Fungal candida can utilize any food source and when someone eats excess fat and protein "fungal" candida produces "even more" damaging acid-proteases and lipases in which it not only digests the food but also starts to digest your intestinal lining. The fungal candida excretes these damaging enzymes "outside" of its cell membrane. Fungus in nature can just about degrade/utilize anything. People need to realize that mild to moderate candida is usually a "yeast" overgrowth in which the yeast will thrive more on simple carbs. But when candida gets severe it becomes more of a "fungal" overgrowth in which it can utilize just about any food source.
With her opinion on the germ theory---If we we're not able to catch any "germs" than what is the purpose of having an immune system? The white blood cells are designed to attack bad bugs. If we could never catch any germs/invaders than why would God design us with an immune system that has attacking features?
Although, I do agree with her on the part of trying not to kill candida as far as causing candida's cell membrane to leak and cause toxins to be released. This approach seems to be more counter-productive for those that have more serious candida. A better approach seems to be to inhibit candida or disaggregate its intracellular components/weaken its cell membrane. But ultimately the beneficial flora needs to be restored/rebalanced.
