Do you find if you go too long without eating candida seems to go virulent and produce its destructive enzymes(searching for food) and starts to irritate the gut? Maybe CLA might help with this. I found with a lot of products they work great for about 7-10 days and then the candida somehow seems to work its way around the anti-fungal. The problem with some of this research is its too short term and they need to test it more long term. Because of the way fungal candida can adapt and its resilience they really need to test these substances on the "same" batch of fungal candida for at least 30 days to see how the candida will react/adapt to it. I'm with you though its worth a try.
