Candida Cleanse: Day 71 ‘Sour The Milk, and Improve Your Odds’

Day 71 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Sour the milk-improve the odds. That’s my way of saying change the environment in your intestines so that it isn’t so nice and cozy for the Candida to grow in. Many people with Candidiasis have a tough time producing Hydrochloric Acid in their gut which really is about breaking down the food properly. For the most part chewing your food long enough allows saliva to stimulate the majority of acid in your stomach which will…’

Candida Cleanse: Day 70 ‘Candida’s Competition, Such A Bad Ass’

Day 70 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘Candida thinks it’s such a bad ass but there is a new kid in town. Lactobacillus acidophilus/Bifidus is stored in my fridge right now as I write this. There is a delicate balance between the Good and Bad Yeast in our body although both belong there…’

Candida Cleanse: Day 69 ‘It’s Not an STD but…’

Candida Cleanse: Day 65 ‘Under the Influence, Emotional Basket Case’

Day 65 of my Candida Cleanse, and ‘One of the side effects of being under the influence of the Candida Monster as I learned the hard way…is the Emotional Roller Coaster ride. Who would have thought eating too much sugar could make you into an Emotional Basket Case. I hardly recognized myself there for awhile. It was surreal.
