parasites and worms can react badly to raw garlic, but in my experience much less than to a strong Black-Walnut tincture. I suggest a green diet for candida because it is proven that candida feeds on sugar. The higher the blood Sugar levels, the more the candida will grow. You need to weaken the candida by depriving it from its main food source, and then kill it. Some parasites can feed on anything I believe, blood, and even bile in my case.
