Everything that I read says that healthy fats are what we need when battling candida:
"Coconut, olive, and avocado oil are all healing to the gut. A variety of saturated and monounsaturated fats have an anti-inflammatory effect on the gut lining. Coconut oil in particular is rich in caprylic acid, which has been shown to inhibit candida overgrowth.

Other sites saying the same things: /www.thecandidadiet.com/coconut-oil.htmwww.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/302809.php
What may actually be happening is you are dealing with die off. Candida can actually cause a herx like reaction, just like Lyme and Bartonella - so detoxing is a must, as well as the use of binders at times.
