We followed a protocol using 100% Gum Spirits of Turpentine to safely, effectively, gently, and relatively quickly eradicate candida overgrowth, and we want to share our success!
One of the significant data points we are tracking during our candida cleanse here in The Garden of Eden is our urine pH measurements for each day.
This protocol calls for the use of 100% Gum Spirits of Turpentine to safely, effectively, gently, and relatively quickly eradicate candida overgrowth.
Our recent post highlighted the importance of maintaining an ideal pH to optimize health, so we are recording the pH of our urine in the morning and night.
It is quite surprising how much information we collected for a dozen people by measuring urine twice a day for a week! To make it a little easier to digest, we are only reporting the AM or first waking urine pH of our first week in this particular post. Many people believe the only way to get an accurate pH reading is with either your first urine or saliva of the morning.
The following graph summarizes week 1, days 2 through 7 for our AM urine pH readings (day 1 is not listed is because we didn't decide to start testing urine until day 2).
If you take a look at the dark blue line that starts on the far left side, you can see how low our average pH was on the first day we measured.
After that, each day shows an increase in our pH levels till we hit a peak on day 4, which happens to be the last day we took the turpentine as a group - and for the majority of us, it was also the last day we ate a primarily fruit and veggie rich diet.
As we shared already, there are some foods that are much more alkaline than others (see chart below) and when you are incorporating enough of them into your diet, it is easy to keep your pH within a much better range for optimal health.
While we took turpentine on days 1-4, our diets primarily consisted of raw, fresh veggies in the 9-10 pH range.
Based off the purple line and light blue line for day 6 & 7, most people's pH dropped a little, but everyone was still much more alkaline than they had been in the beginning of the week.
Here is another chart with just a quick comparison between day 2 and day 7:
As you can see, over half our members here at the GOE were hitting a pH above the 6.0 mark, which is a huge improvement for something as small as detoxing and shifting your diet for only one week!
Imagine if you could eradicate dozens of diseases we know are associated with a low acidic pH by simply changing your eating habits to include more fresh raw green veggies! It could save people thousands of dollars a year by cutting out Rx drugs, doctors visits, and hospital visits, not to mention the time, fun, and wonderful things in life you lose when you are ill!
We will continue to discuss the importance of pH and the overall health implications attached to that. We have so much more data to share with you, not only from our last week but for the coming weeks. The progress in our health just gets more and more impressive as the weeks of candida cleansing continues!
A note on our measuring equipment:
We use two different electronic pH meters to check them against each other to make sure they are functioning accurately. Usually the readings were less than 0.1 away from each other so the difference was very small, but we use the lower of the two pH readings just to be on the safe side.
We use an Apera and a Jellas pH meter. You can check these products out on Amazon if you are interested:
We hope this will inspire you to do additional research and work towards the best possible health for yourself!
Cheers to your health & happiness!
