In brief: Vitamin K
Vitamin k deficiency does not lead to parasites or candida.
Candida does not lead to vitamin k deficiency. Although parasites have been associated with vitamin deficiencies (for example, the tape worm and vitamin b12), i could find no association with parasites and vitamin k.

In brief: Vice versa
Parasites eat the nutrition you take in and can lead to deficiencies in many vitamins, including vitamin k.
Low vitamin k levels have no effect on whether you will get a parasite or not.
