Before you decide, I just want to give you umy persepctive. I eat meat, and the times I have tried to go veggie my candida flared horribly. Even though I eat meat, my PH is always good. In my experience, being alkaline is a helper to getting rid of candida, but in and of itself has not been the answer, at least for me. What it did was make the things I do to fight candida work better.
