There's definitely a connection.. I wondered if the candida may have fought against the parasites because whenever I would see whipworms, they were almost always tangled up in candida blobs and roots.. like they were trapped. only once did I ever see a lone worm on its own.. every other time it was a tangled mess. It could have been how it was all pushed out too.. They could also live IN it too or it could be beneficial to them some how. We'll never know because no one cares enough to study it.
