LET’S DO THIS FOR OURSELVES GIRLS! NO MORE EXCUSES!
A few years ago on a Christmas trip to Australia, I found out I had this crazy thing called CANDIDA! Hmmm, what the heck is that, you ask? After indulging on my Mother-in-Law‘s ridiculously delish homebaked breads and cakes, a friend of mine recommended I “juice” for a few days to get my system rebalanced. He gave me a juice of apple, carrot, celery, a few other things I can’t remember along with a serious helping of ginger. It was so hot and tangy I could barely drink it, but being the brave girl I am…I downed the entire glass of this concoction.
A few hours later during dinner, my hubby looked at me and said “babe, what’s going on with your lips?” I was itchy all over and so uncomfortable. I pulled out a mirror and my lips looked like Eddie Murphy‘s in the Nutty Professor. You know the scene when he’s turning into his alter ego and his body parts are all huge and morphed! I did have a brief Angelina Jolie moment! By the time we got home from dinner, I had hives all over my body. Our friend said, that looks like a candida reaction to the ginger. HUH? He explained that candida was an overgrowth of yeast which feeds and grows off the sugars in our bodies. It can cause fatigue, a lethargic feeling and overall sluggish energy. With a few simple lifestyle changes like eating more yogurt and reducing starches and sugars, candida can easily be kept under control.
My sister, Natalie, also battles keeping her candida under control and just went on a great cleanse which she shares in the latest webisode. She’s candid about how the cleanse gave her a bad case of smelly feet! Pewww!
My sister, Natalie, is a refreshing combination of tough-as-nails tomboy with the looks of a Victoria’s Secret model! She kicked some serious butt on “Survivor” which led her on a Spiritual & Physical journey which she shares with us on the latest webisode….
