ACV + Molasses would be totally fine even on an anti-candida diet. Honey has been debated terribly by candida people. SEe, honey is absorbed *instantly* because it's predigested by the bees. That means that if it's in a drink and not trapped by fiber, it goes right to the bloodstream and never sees the intestines. It's much harder for yeasties to feed on sugars in the bloodstream. They can, but not as easily. So the rare teaspoon might be okay after you first 2 weeks of really pure diet.
Achy joint people need lots of alkaline agents. I find the best help to be carrot juice drinks with beets, parsley, cilantro, kale, green apple, especially when taken iwth a bit of butter to activate bile and thus turn the beta carotene into Vit A and get the minerals to the liver FAST.
