Health is what you need to beat candida and it can’t be divided into body parts and systems that you can prioritise.
I just happened upon a much more candida-specific reason for not using something with chemical similarities to plastic as a food though. Ghee, coconut oil and duck/goose fat are almost completely saturated and much better options.
a Candida albicans biofilm fuels its reproduction based on your intake of highly polyunsaturated fatty acids. This means that if you eat a bag of potato chips, corn chips, or French fries and you have a Candida biofilm, you just poured gas on the fire. Candida inserts oxygen molecules into the unsaturated bonds of the fatty acids (the more unsaturated bonds the better from Candida’s point of view) forming a highly toxic inflammatory signal called an oxylipin. Oxylipins are reproductive growth factors for the biofilm. It is technically impossible to insert an oxygen molecule into a saturated fat, which is why it is not possible for stearic acid to promote biofilm growth.
