As you may know I fought candida for about 10 years on-off and finally I have been free for many years.
But recently my stress levels have been really high and I have been feeling terrible. This situation has been continuing for several months. I know the long term effects of stress are awful and I was taking Rhodiola and Lemon Balm to keep myself calm. To be honest I was more worried about my mental stress and I hadn’t thought about candida.
But I’ve recently realised that my bowel is very sluggish and I’ve had a few ear infections again. Oh no. Of course these symptoms could be related to being stressed out. But I know that I have created the ideal conditions for candida again.
Also I must confess that I ate and drank a lot of sugary stuff over Christmas. Normally that sort of indulgence is fine but under stressful conditions it probably wasn’t wise.
So here I am hoping for a better year and realising that if I dont sort out this problem quickly then 2015 could the year that the candida returns with vengeance.
So I’ve decided to think positive (you know I am a BIG believer in the power of thought) and come with a plan of attack.
This is what I am doing:-
1. Avoiding sugar and yeast as much as possible.
2. Drinking tons of water to clear out toxins
3. Taking my homeopathic candida remedy (I use Helios Homeopathy products)
4. Taking teaspoon of colloidol silver 10pm once a day
5. Taking maximised capryllic acid with main evening meal
6. Reading through my blog and website for more ideas as I’ve forgotten a lot!
I also desperately need to get my bowel moving otherwise all my efforts will be in vain. Here in the UK I used to take Milk of Magnesia overnight to encourage bowel movements but then I heard they stopped selling it temporarily. When I had candida really bad I used to eat one apple per day with the permission of my naturopath. I am convinced that the regular fibre did more to get rid of the candida than the sugar helped to boost it. Hope I am making sense! lol!
Finally I also need to think about what is causing my stress and see if I can do anything about it.
I wish you all a healthy, happy and candida-free 2015
