I dont doubt at all that in large numbers candida itself can have an immuno suppresive effect strong enough to influence, to whatever degree, immune response. It has some pretty bad ass mechanisms for reproducing and staying alive in host, which is why it rises to the top of the microbial heap, in immune suppressed people. But if that were truly the cause, it would subside when numbers were effectively lowered with such a protocol as you have followed. That almost never happens. I dont think it to be Th1 cell tolerance as the cause of it coming back. A possible influence of Th3 & Treg cells on creating a tolerant state of function, but again that happens in the presence of Il-10. Candida and proper immune function (meaning no other influences), to my understanding, are not a cause of that.
And hhv infections can reactivate without any typical viral infection symptoms at all, in fact if they’re doing their job well, thats typical.
