None by just recommending Sodium Bicarb when it comes to candida, but plenty of others by holistic means. The Italian Doc's main recommendations for Sod. Bicarb. are for cancer use and "cure". I'm not big on using that four letter word myself. Most practitioners have long ago given up trying to "cure" yeast infections by recommending alkalinizers.
Sod. Bicarb. does have its uses, it is a great alkalizer and is good for different kinds of digestive problems.
