Ive heard one of the reason why fungal candida so hard to get rid of is because of its tough chitin cell wall. So where is candida getting this chitin to strengthen its cell wall? According to wikipedia certain fibers(mainly insoluble fiber can contain some chitin) So the question is when we eat certain foods that contain chitin from the insoluble fibers are we strengthening the cell wall of candida fungus?
or does candida somehow self produce chitin? But how?
Our cell walls our built by lipids and proteins ..but candidas cell wall is chitin. beta glucans . So is candida utilizing certain fibers to build its cell wall..Seems like it needs to get the raw materials from somewhere to build its cell wall?
This is how tony orlando helped get rid of his candida by taking lufenuron which is suppose to break down the chitin in the candida? Or probably just taking a enzyme that has chitinase in it. Sounds like a good recipe for bad die-off symptoms having the candida leak its cell membrane. Sometimes it seems like the die-offs are just not worth the misery you can go through. I wish there is a way that you could just starve the candida/deprive it of any chitin food sources and not go through the misery of constant die off.
There are some websites that recommend not to always try to "kill" the candida, but to deprive the candida of what it needs and to focus on building our own immune system. The only problem is this approach seems to take forever and many of us want to get rid of this crap yesterday.
