Candida 101

What exactly is Candida?
Over the past few weeks I’ve been talking a lot about bad bacteria, “Candida” in particular.

It might surprise you to know that most of us have Candida.

It is a genus of yeast that occurs naturally in the intestines, on the skin, and in mucous membranes.

When it is in balance it is usually harmless however, an overgrowth of Candida can lead to an infection called Candidiasis and this my friends is where I come in to get the Candidiasis out!

The most common symptoms of Candidiasis are:
– Stomach pain
– Diarrhoea
– Constipation
– Bloating
– Gas
– Nausea
– Thrush
– Recurring UTI’s
– Low Energy
– Sinus Infections
– Skin & Nail Fungal Infections
– Breakouts on the forehead, cheeks & sides of mouth
– Joint Pain
– Weight Gain/Water Retention
– Sweet Cravings

What can cause Candidiasis?
– Eating Sugar & Refined Carbs
– Eating Gluten
– Eating Dairy
– Drinking Alcohol
– Taking Antibiotics
– Taking Oral Contraceptives (The Pill)
– Taking Pharmaceuticals
– Using Toxic Home & Beauty Products
– High Stress/Anxiety

I have experienced Candida multiple times on my health journey. It isn’t fun but it is possible to kick it in the butt and here you’ll learn just how to do that.
