I think the reason being is that fungus is more designed for the break down of fats/protein, whereas candida in its yeast form is more designed for the break down of carbs and simple sugars.
I think your probably spot-on there, and that was my experience as well.
The first time I had bad candida, I didnt know it, and my body (although I suffered,lol)eventually handled it within 8 months, no treatment.
I ate whatever went down ok without triggering my “GERD” (thats was a bs diagnosis)and followed no specific diet except whatever didnt cause my throat to close.
One weird thing though…I ate lots of calcium antacids.
While I understand that is a terrible thing to do when candida is turning off your stomach acid, I think it alkalized my system and kept the candida from going fungal.
Its just a theory, but makes sense because I healed in spite of all those tums.
