My mom suffers from Candida and she was recommended to change her diet quite drastically as well as take probiotics and enzymes.
SOme foods she is to eliminate inlucde anything processed, sugars, soy etc.
She is recommended to eat healthy grains, fruits, (not dried fruits) fresh and raw nuts and veggies etc.
I don't know a ton about it, but I can say that she did feel better while she was on the restricted diet and she lost weight as well and looked better. Her skin also got better (from psorisis).
But she has not stuck to the diet?
She thinks the enzymes really help, though!
