Oh, my - yes, I know about the sex drive issues. My hubby too. Patient and understanding, but. . . . :)
Weird thing is that as I recover, every now and then I will get a HUGE burst of sexual energy. I just wish it would happen more regularly. Nothing worse than having sex when you are NOT in the mood or feel bad physically. Well, ok, there are some things worse. ;) But it still sucks, no pun intended.
The saurkraut is not really like kimchee. But, funny you should mention, as the same company also makes a probiotic-chocked kimchee, as well as a live salsa (which I LOVE - - comes in red, yellow and green varieties and they are all excellent). They also make this stuff called Zing Salad which is like the kraut, only beet-based (beets are very good for the liver, BTW) and has other veggies in it too. The kraut itself is not really like regular saurkraut in taste. It is much tangier and less "cabbagy". I liked it immediately.
Have you noticed if your candida symptoms appear in conjunction with your menses or ovulation times? I have such a pattern in that the hormones will cause a surge at these times and then it will fall away after the few days are over.
