Are you feeling a little “off”?
Feeling moody, gassy, anxious, and fatigued or frequently getting colds? Well, you might have a Candida infection! When Candida starts growing out of control, we get sick. Candida is yeast that lives in our mouths and digestive tracts.
Small quantities of Candida are necessary to provide food to the healthy probiotic bacteria ‘Acidophillus and Bifidus’ in our bodies (aiding in digestion). When the balance of Candida is disturbed it results in an unhealthy over growth and can be harmful…causing all of those yucky symptoms.
Simple causes of Candida overgrowth can be excessive stress (elevated cortisol levels), smoking, sugary diets, pregnancy, immune deficiency, birth control pills and long term use of antibiotics.
You can treat your Candida infection with a Candida cleanse. A Candida cleanse reduces the favorable conditions where the Candida thrive. During a Candida cleanse, you must avoid refined sugars, starchy foods that are high in carbohydrates and fermented foods such as cheese and beer, gluten and vinegar.
