30 enemas a day??? That is just 2 short of doing one enema twice an hour every hour while awake (16 hours a day). This thread is 5 years old and as much as I admire dvjorge, I can't get behind him in his recommendation about using baking soda enemas. Nystatin enemas I do heartily recommend. It could even be that the reason why you see some many candida colonies with baking soda enemas is because the candida thrives and blooms in alkaline conditions, hence more comes out. Anyway, candida can live in alkaline and acidic environments. However, acidic conditions will transmute the candida into its non-pathogenic benign spore form. Alkaline environments favors the pathogenic hyphael form which causes leaky gut. The hyphae actually pierce the endothelium of the colon wall and allow passage of undigested chyme to enter the bloodstream causing allergies and eventually autoimmune conditions. I am certain that the reason I contracted candida was because of my overuse of antacids (both H2 blockers and later, proton pump inhibitors). Do yourself a favor, if you have candida, avoid alkaline and embrace acid. Your body will thank you. The pH of the colon is naturally slightly acidic. It is probiotic bacteria (lactobacillus and bifidobacteria) that produce lactic acid which keeps it slightly acidic and disfavors the pathogenic form of candida from gaining a hold. I would recommend enemas using nystatin and ACV (apple cider vinegar) 1 Tbsp. ACV per 8 oz. water.
