Being Gluten Free

I want to stress how IMPORTANT it is that you start to take charge of your health and make lifestyle changes to help improve your overall life. I don’t know if I have been clear on what exactly Candida is, but I will try to explain it again. Candida is a yeast infection that takes control of the stomach and intestines. Also, it can show up in females more because we carry more natural yeast in our bodies. Candida can affect anyone though. Even someone perfectly healthy. It just takes one thing to upset your body’s natural way of working. Which in this day and age, can be anything. Poor diet, which a diet full of sugar and unhealthy fats, stress, medications, mainly antibiotics. Candida isn’t easily eliminated. You can’t just pop a pill to make it go away. It’s a fight to eliminate it out of your body. And the worse Candida is, the more of a fight it is to get it to go away. But in the end, you’ll feel better and healthy. Right now, I know I’m struggling with it. But I knew going into this it would be. I get worn out so fast because all I want is to eat whatever I want. I know the day will come that I will feel a lot better. That’s my main goal. 
So if you suffer from any food allergies or sensitivities, stress, have taken antibiotics, or just don’t feel like yourself. I highly recommend seeing a Naturopathy Doctor. Because most doctors will only find other things wrong and not find the REAL cause of all the issues. 
On that note. I also want to explain what Gluten Free is.
