I have never seen any evidence that Candida can build up a resistance to yucca root and I doubt it would. The active components in the yucca root are sterols. These same sterols are found in various food plants in lower concentrations. If the Candida was building a resistance to the sterols then it would have done this with exposure to the lower levels of sterols from other sources. Yet yucca root still works despite previous exposure of the Candida to sterols.
In addition, simply killing the Candida does not work since it will grow back if the terrain is not changed. The terrain must be kept slightly acidic to turn off the Candida growth gene and to keep the Candida in a benign yeast form. Make sure you are using yucca powder and not an extract since the fibers in the powder will help feed the flora to maintain that acidic pH needed to control Candida.
