Candida is such a tough one to deal with but raising your metabolism WILL help in a way that nothing else has (speaking from experience).
If you get symptom flares could you take diflucan for a few days to beat it back while you are continuing to boost metabolism?
I’m pretty sure alcohol is terrible for metabolism because it causes more estrogen to be produced which is very anti-metabolic. If you don’t drink I would not suggest starting and it sounds like you need your liver to work much better already. I would eat as instinctually as possible. Believe it or not there is a woman who cured her candida by eating nothing but cookies for a few weeks. Because it’s all she wanted to eat. Tell that to the candida experts! Ha. Good luck with everything
