    Systemic candidiasis is real but rare. The stuff you’re talking about became quite popular back in the late 1970’s, so much so that funds had to be spent to test it, and the hoax should have been laid to rest back then.
    This bit of snake oil was also closely associated with “non-IgE mediated allergy,” another one couched in language such that it impossible to disprove. Every new negative study was met by a new explanation, and no real evidence. That’s one of the hallmarks of quackery.
