IMO if you are having problems with Candida (yeast) infection, its important to remove starchy, high carb foods from the diet and ramp up your intake of leafy greens. Plants contain so many wonderful healing micro-nutriments in synergy with one another that its a shame not to utilize them!
I have found putting my raw greens in a blender to be extremely helpful. No worries about cooking, chewing. To this I add kefir water which is a type of home grown probiotic which is a mix of beneficial yeasts and bacteria.
I make several glass of this up in one big batch, and drink it thru out the day.
Ivory, have you tried probiotics in a capsule form?
Something like Pearls Probiotic?
The point here is not to kill the Candida, but to make changes in your intestinal track that make it difficult for it to exist. And to create conditions which favor beneficial bacteria growth. This crowds the bad guy out.
Whenever you take probiotics, its a good idea to send them down with something to munch on. So take them with food. Here's a wiki link to an article on oligosaccharides which is the type of fiber the beneficials favor! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oligosaccharide
Additionally there's a fiber supplement you can take called "Benefibre" that's inulin... a type of oligosaccharide. Here's a link to that: www.benefibre.ca/fiberHealth/index.shtml?f
Best of luck with this!
