Yes- they DO make it worse if you're candida is heavy. They don't bother me quite as bad anymore- but still some. I remember about 6 months ago standing in my health food store ( at their juice counter ) drinking a tasty cup of their fresh veggie juice and all of the sudden I felt dizzy and drunk. I nearly fell down on the floor and could hardly get my groceries and out of the store! Folks that come on here and advocate all these sorts of things really don't understand candida. Obviously nutrition is extremely important, but when you have candida, there are special considerations. People that have never experienced debilitating candida have no clue.
