FWIW, I thought about candida as well when I read your post. Interestingly (or not, you be the judge), sometimes acupuncturists work on the Large Intestine meridian to help a patient with loss of taste and also on the Governing vessel, which is in a way one of the most important meridians in the body since it helps regulate all yang meridians (gives them energy, etc.).
It also sometimes reflects of yang vacuity in the spleen. So anything that makes your spleen's job easier would also help I think.
So, in other words, help your bowels and your spleen by eating the right diet for you and getting rid of your candida.
