Magnesium is a vital mineral and candida sufferers tend to have a deficiency, but there seems to be a lot of clinical and experiential evidence to suggest it can feed candida. Just Google something like “magnesium candida” and you’ll see people talking about reactions from supplements or even Epsom salt baths. If you’re not getting a reaction, then it should be okay to continue the supplementation, but treat it carefully like you would with introducing a new food.
I was hoping to add Epsom salts to my baths before discovering this, so I’m a little disappointed. It’s remarkable how much candida can take control of your body. It’s no wonder we get so many symptoms.
