your candida issue: there is an interesting site you might want to check.
As a matter of fact, it might explain why my husband's allergies went away after we changed our diet to avoid sulfites. My motto now is : cook and be healthy!
I have heard that GSE (grapefruit seed extract) can be helpful in case of candida. Have you tried it? Here at home I have used it very successfully for skin problems and just recently as antibiotics for my dog who had a urinary tract infection. It was cured in two days, I could hardly believe it. If you do try it, make sure you get something pure. I can't advise you on a specific brand though.
Good luck. I wish you better health.
