Getting Back On Track

I have decided that it’s time to follow the candida diet, very strictly. Since lately I haven’t been feeling good at all. And I know the main reasons why. I have fallen so off track with diet, that I’m basically starting all over again. Just thinking about going through what I went through a few months ago, I cringe at the thought of it. But what I do know is, after suffering for a few weeks, I did start to feel better. I had less symptoms. Some days I would feel worse though. But I had more good days than bad. And currently, I don’t feel good every single day. Some of my symptoms are extreme fatigue, headaches, terrible stomach ache along with poor digestion, and I just feel like I’m in a fog. It’s not fun…that’s why I decided that tomorrow, I am starting all over again. Some of you may have heard of the Candida diet, some of you may have not. Well I have looked up and researched all about it. And everyone has their different versions of it. Most of the diets, you start off by doing a cleanse. I’m sorry, but that just doesn’t float my boat right now. I read some of the cleanses some people have done..and ew..just ew. The stuff they would drink. I’m just not about to step down that road just yet. I got extremely overwhelmed thinking I would have to. But then I remembered the information I was given by my Naturopathy doctor. She told me that I shouldn’t go near a cleanse…thank goodness!! I feel so relieved.
To get rid of Candida, it’s about focusing on foods that don’t feed it. And foods that feed it are sugar (this includes all natural sugar), processed foods, and any foods that simply aren’t all natural. I read food labels over and over again just to make sure I don’t miss a certain ingredient. If you’re reading a label, and can’t even pronounce an ingredient. Just put it back on the shelf. Because it certainly doesn’t belong in your body. Whenever I’m grocery shopping, I take a long time because I’m reading labels of everything. You’d be surprised at how sneaky companies are when it comes to adding sugar. It’s ridiculous!
