Hi am green juicing 3 times a day. Only have fish meals 3 times a day as I have candida leaky gut. While I been juicing my ph urine is 8.4 is this safe?

Hi am green juicing 3 times a day. Only have fish meals 3 times a day as I have candida leaky gut. While I been juicing my ph urine is 8.4 is this safe?

Your urine is too alkaline and will likely lead to infection if not kidney stones. I urge you to see a traditional doctor ASAP before any further damages to health and wallet. ...Read more
