Need help healing leaky gut and candida

I need some helpful advice. I've been low fat cooked vegan for over a year now. I am mostly raw except for quinoa and sweet potatoes and some cooked broccolli/carrots etc.

My health has gotten worse lately, I have the symptoms of Candida overgrowth and leaky gut: very dry and irritated skin, acne, rosacea, insomnia, dark circles under eyes, inflammation after eating, several food intolerances, hair falling off, coated tongue, sore throat. In addition to this I have teeth decay and enamel damage, all which appeared within the last year. I am drinking all juices with a straw now and avoiding citrus and other acid fruits.

Bananas and dates aggregate the acne really bad and I have to avoid them. (I do understand that leaky gut and candida are major causes of my skin issues so I might be able to eat them once I've healed).

Fruit quality is very bad where I live, everything is unripe and non-organic. It's impossible to get enough calories and stay low fat without some cooked starches.

I started a 1 month parasite cleanse (Rothkranz) 3 weeks ago. I think it's killing Candida and parasites if I have them but it might also be too hard on my body if my colon cannot expel all the toxins normally.

My current diet consists of mainly dates, quinoa, sweet potatoes, corn, greens, celery, carrots, apples and other fruit like oranges. I get overt fats from hemp seeds and tahini. I avoid salt, spices and oils. I've been drinking 2 to 3 liters of water daily and I'm now trying to go for 4 liters as the absolute minimum per day.

Advice online talks about avoiding carbs, eating pre and probiotic foods, taking certain supplements etc. I really don't know what to do (or eat!) now :(
