Bach flower remedies to help you chill out.

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.  Sort of like an out of body experience whereby you are the observer of yourself on one level.. watching yourself freak out and say the most ridiculous things at the height of your agitation…while at the same time being in that body and feeling helpless to stop yourself or get yourself under control.

Until the cleanse kicks in one little Herbal Remedy that has a ‘Calming’ effect is called ‘Rescue Remedy’ by Bach Flower Remedies and can be offered to humans and animals alike.  Many times my Naturopathic vet would have me dump it in my cat’s water bowl to calm her before or after a visit to the clinic.  Likewise he would advise me to put some in my juice as seeing my little fur ball shaved and sewn up was upsetting to me too.

Over the course of several of the next blogs I will share some of the herbals, remedies etc. that are helpful in dealing with a Candida cleanse and why.  As always I encourage you to embrace your individuality and seek the guidance of a Health Care Practitioner to help you determine what is right ….for you.

    Trouble digesting food and processing it through the colon correctly leads to constipation and if not dealt with, you are able to wind up carrying lots of excessive waste materials than you normally would.The sad truth is always that you’ll discover a lot a lot more overweight Americans than healthy ones. This might be attributed to family history – we learned to consume or overeat during our early many years simply because foods is seen like a signifies to celebrate existence. So we understand early to associate our body’s fuel with emotions.
