What is Candida?

Candida overgrowth is a sneaky, unfamiliar fungal infection that many people struggle with but don't even know it.

Candida is a fungus that lives on the skin, inside the mouth and in the throat, in the gut and in the vagina. Men suffer from Candida overgrowth too, but it's more common in women.

There are about 20 different varieties of the Candida fungus that normally live in harmony with the other bacteria in our bodies. Candida albicans is the most abundant and common cause of candida infections, and an overgrowth can cause major, long-term problems with our health if not treated properly.

Common Symptoms of Candida Overgrowth

  • Recurring yeast infections
  • UTI’s or vaginal bacterial infections
  • Skin issues like acne or eczema
  • Skin rashes or discolouration
  • Digestive issues
  • Food sensitivities
  • Abdominal bloating, cramping and gas
  • Chronic fatigue and low energy
  • Brain fog and memory loss
  • Weakened immune system
  • Chronic sinus infections
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Weight gain

Common triggers of Candida overgrowth:

  • High stress
  • Poor diet 
  • High alcohol intake
  • Long-term antibiotic use
  • Long-term birth control use
  • Menstruation
  • Hormonal changes
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes

If you can relate to any of these signs, symptoms, or triggers and you suspect that you are experiencing some form of Candida overgrowth, you can heal it naturally.

Personally, I’ve been struggling with recurring yeast infections for most of my life. But it wasn’t until my early-30’s when I was going through a period of extreme stress in my personal life when my Yoni health drastically changed

At this point, I experienced Yoni health issues on another level. I suffered from recurring vaginal yeast infections 1-2 times per month. I had severe brain fog that felt like I was drunk all the time. It was even hard to remember things that happened the day before. I was exhausted all the time, no matter how much I slept. On top of that, I struggled with a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away. At the age of 32, I got such bad cystic acne on my face, I didn’t even want to go out in public…

During this period, I visited many doctors, who would just send me home with a prescription, not understanding what was REALLY going on with me.

That’s when I started to do my own research and discovered that I was suffering from a Candida overgrowth. 

"Luckily Candida overgrowth can be treated naturally, through diet and nutrition and wellness practices.

I needed to eliminate inflammatory foods from my diet, especially sugar,  and eat good-quality sources of protein, good fats and low-starch vegetables. No carbs, no fruit, no sweets, coffee or alcohol. None of my favourite things! I needed to do this diet for 3 months and take supplements for additional support to eliminate the Candida overgrowth that had taken over my body.

I started immediately and the first week was difficult as I was experiencing the symptoms of the Candida dying-off. But once that part was over, I slowly started feeling better.

Within the first month, my skin cleared up, I had more energy, the yeast infections went away, my mind felt clearer, I slept better. I FELT better. 

It was difficult to change my diet and lifestyle so drastically, but it worked and it was SO WORTH IT. It made me understand the saying “you are what you eat”!

Since then, my life has changed. I am very mindful of the foods I eat, and know what and how to eat that works for my body.

My struggles with Candida have forever changed my life and lifestyle. And if it ever comes back, now I know what to do and how to manage it.

I’m so grateful for this experience because if it wasn’t for my struggles with Candida, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Now I am able to help many women struggling with similar issues, heal their bodies, and their Yoni’s, just like I did mine!
