Fungal candida is natures way of decomposing matter. Once candida turns fungal in our bodies it is prematurely trying to decompose our tissue. That's not my idea of cleaning up but rather creating destructive enzymes(causing inflammation), harmful metabolites(ammonia,acetaldehyde), and antigens that paralyze our immune system. Our body then has to go into overdrive to clean up the mess that excess candida is creating. The harmful metabolites that candida "overgrowth" produces is enough mess in itself to overwhelm the body. Fungus in nature is nature's friend in that it decomposes matter to clean up "dead" matter, but fungus is not "living" matter's friend.
