I didn’t know my dad had Candida.

I was reading a chapter on ‘Oral Thrush’ when it hit me.  All those years that my father’s morning routine consisted of him waking up and spending the next 15 minutes in the bathroom spitting out all the white gloop that had accumulated in his mouth overnight was in actuality ‘Oral Thrush’.  It didn’t occur to me at the time that it might be a condition of some sort.

It’s kinda gross, I know.  My father however was NOT the Poster Child of Health.  More like the prince of self indulgence and boy did he have a sweet tooth.  I am not saying this to scare you, but the truth of the matter is that my dad ate what he wanted, when he wanted and be damned any self control.
He also died at the ripe old age of 63. I recognized early on that if I didn’t man up….err….woman up as an adult and take responsibility for the fact that what I ate DID in fact affect my overall health that I could look forward to some serious health issues.

I don’t believe that ‘it runs in the family’ is the reason I myself also contracted an imbalance of good vs bad yeast in my body.  More like ‘familial bad habits’ that I need to admit to and address.

Isn’t being a grown up grand?
