I have been dealing with Candida and have been put on a antibiotic for six months to get it under control. I know this is ironic, as antibiotics cause candida, but I have been also taking a strong probiotic to stop the growth of Candida as well....
In the past, every so often, I have tested my urine ph, and this was before going on the anti and probiotics, and it would be slightly acidic, 6.5, but nothing too bad. Well, just tonight I tested it and it read 4.5. After researching this, it said that Cancer patients whom are terminally ill will have urine that tests this low.
Upon even more further investigation, I read that probiotics are acidifying to the body and that antibiotics are alkalinizing to the body.... This seems contradictory to me as a body that is acidic means that there is too much bad bacteria in the body and so you are supposed to take a probiotic, which is the good bacteria, but now I am reading that this in fact makes your body even more acidic?
Should I be really concerned that my urine is 4.5 and how can I change this?
