I don't know much about enzymes and haven't heard about proteases causing hyperactivity, so I really don't know. But what is odd about the argument from my perspective is that it was obviously written for people with gut problems and who are low in tryptophan. Eating foods relatively high in tryptophan and low in other aminos may not matter at all for people who are not digesting protein properly.
Are you trying to establish a new diet for yourself?
I don't think the author of that website knows much about nutrition in general, so I'm not sure how accurate her comments are anyway.
I'm now doing an actual anti-candida diet (no fruit except lemons, lots of meat and eggs, CO & EVOO, low carb veggies--so no carrots, peas, squash, or starches). I'm having more die-off symptoms in 3 days of this than I had in a month of SCD, so I guess it's doing something.
