Is Candida an all-too-familiar part of your life?
We may not even recognise it as ‘candida’ – it’s more the symptoms we identify with like:
- Bad breath
- Bloating, belching, intestinal gas, and/or abdominal pain
- Constipation or diarrhoea
- Endometriosis or infertility
- Fatigue and chronic fatigue
- Frequent mood swings
- Loss of sexual desire or feeling
- Muscle aches, weakness, or paralysis
- Pain and/or swelling in joints
- Poor memory, foggy thinking, or feeling "spacey"
- Troublesome vaginal itching, burning, or discharge
These symptoms are all too familiar right?
And we dash to the pharmacy to grab all sorts of anti-fungal treatments to relieve the symptoms.
The challenge with Candida is as many of us know – the over-the-counter treatments are just a quick fix.
Thankfully there is a more sustainable solution!
And in consultation with clients who stick with the Body Ecology program, I do notice a decline or even absence of the above symptoms when their candida is brought under control… FROM WITHIN.
The key is restoring balance to our inner ecosystem.
The Body Ecology Diet addresses these imbalances within to kill off the candida overgrowth and restore good gut biome.
Get rid of the bad guys and reinstate the good guys to put it simply!
To help you understand how the Body Ecology system works, here is just a simple lowdown on the origin of Candida.
It’s a fungus in all of us…and easily lives harmlessly within our bodies.
Candida is only a problem when there is an overgrowth, otherwise known as an infection!
And if our inner ecosystem (our good-gut biome) is out of balance, our immunity is weakened and we are at risk of a candida or yeast infection.
So how does our inner ecosystem become imbalanced?
It’s all too easy – we consume too much sugar and carbs, we drink too much alcohol, we take too many antibiotics, and/or we started off in life with low good-gut biome - it doesn’t take much in this modern lifestyle to create an ‘imbalance’ of good and bad bacteria!
So unless we RESTORE this balance (at least 80% good to 20% bad gut biome) we will most certainly be a perfect candidate for a lifetime of candida ☹.
Ok so now we know the answer to keeping a lid on candida and its annoying symptoms is to RESTORE the good gut biome in our ecosystem ☺.
So how do we do this?
To eradicate Candida – it’s vital to go sugar-free, gluten-free and casein (milk) free.
If you need a hand meandering through the ins and outs of this process I am happy to consult with you – via skype, phone or in person at my two clinics in Armidale or Sydney NSW.
A great way to kick it all off though – even before starting an anti-Candida program - is to introduce a ‘good morning’ green drink with Body Ecology’s Vitality Super Greens.
And secondly a shot glass or two daily of the refreshing Fermented Drinks (Cocobiotic, InnergyBiotic or PassionfruitBiotic) to clear out the bad gut biome and make way for the good gut biome to populate!
Both of the above will give you a big help to fight sugar and carb cravings and give you the minerals to maintain energy during the process.
The Body Ecology program empowers you to create your own health naturally.
This will take approximately three months.
After that, we encourage you to widen out into a less strict version of our program, adding in foods that are still very healthy but that do not feed a yeast infection.
This way you can maintain health, energy, and youthful vitality.
