Nicole Chayka, co-author of Fringe Dweller on the Night Shift,& Canadian gal on a journey to live off the Grid with Middle Earth HomeI, Nikki, am Blogging my crazy thoughts and cravings during my on-going Candida Cleanse, in a step by step journal titled The Candida Chronicles, so I can share with you the The Dietary Rules, the Meal Plans and Recipes, the Tips and Facts, and most importantly, the Results. If I can lick this problem, letting ‘Food be my Medicine’ and only using Herbals then you can too! Day 1 of my Candida Journal STARTS HERE.

Take the preliminary Candida Quiz to see what Candida is,and if you have the Symptoms of this nasty Yeast condition affecting both women, and men.

Day 5 of symptom categories from the book, Overcoming Candida: The Ultimate Cookery Guide by author Xandria Williams is Genito-urinary Symptoms:

Vaginal itch or burning
Vaginal discharge (white or creamy)
Repeating ‘cystitis’, unresponsive to antibiotics in the long term
Premenstrual tension
Painful periods
Menstrual cramps
Decreased interest in sexual activity

I find the last symptom particularly funny because with a line of issues like that it really is a foregone conclusion that there will be an impact to your sex life. Ok, maybe not your sex life but it wreaked havoc on mine.

I have noticed my symptoms re: acne triggered by hormones have been lessened to some degree by the cleanse but have not cleared up altogether.  It is important to me to have some closure with that and so I am willing to act as guinea pig as I explore the natural and herbal solutions but that will be another time (when this is over) and another blog.
