Yes, f.ex. in pregnancy viruses prevent, that the mother hives off placenta and fetus. The viruses suppress the immune systeme, for this reason candida increases. This is one reason (another is a hormonal reason) why pregnancy triggers candida. Nevertheless candida should be treated, because it´s a real infection, and untreated it does not go away. candida is the most important parasite. And as candida suppresses methylation and immunity by himself, and also binds to other microbes and toxins, treating candida is a possibility to detoxify the body, and to improve the immunity, the gut and the methylation.
