My mom is even on this candida diet with me. She lives across the street now and wanted to be supportive since I have a baby to take care of and am having some coping problems. As it turns out, she has candida too and needs to be on the diet herself. Of course, she agreed to be on the diet out of support, not out of necessity. She is even a gourmet cook. You can't ask for a better support system than that.
