To completely cut off candida you would need to go on a crazy diet. There are a few supplements you can take to rid yourself of candida. You can try pau'darco, garlic, black walnut, oil of oreagano, and yes the caprylic acid. There are many products for candida that contain multiple ingredients in them. Taking probiotics and some other candida fighting supplements should help. It may take a while though. I just started taking acidophilus to help with my heartburn, and so far it seems to help.
