Your body will naturally fight off a disease if your immune system is in good condition and working at top performance, but if you have a Candida infestation, this is not the case. The Candida overcrowds the beneficial bacteria in your intestines which causes the population of flora to drop. In addition, the Candida creates an alkaline environment in the intestines which is not beneficial for the good bacteria causing the population to lessen even more. Eventually you will need to replace the bacteria yourself with probiotics and kefir. You’ll also need to include prebiotics in your diet in order to feed the beneficial bacteria.
