Saying ‘it’s a fungus, therefor its bad’, doesn’t really seem to be an actual explanation. No candida diet allows them, but I still don’t actually understand why.
The issue, I think, is related to our INDIVIDUAL immune response to fungus, ie mushrooms, or, in your example, kefir. Yeast don’t feed on mushrooms, however, it may elicit a strong immune/hypersensitivity (as mushrooms and kefir do in my case).
As I have said before I think it is best to let your own body be your guide.
