Food allergies, food intolerance and candida commonly go hand in hand. Candida myceila (in its fungal form) causes damage to your intestinal lining which can worsen or trigger food intolerance and allergies.  This can increase food and environmental allergies and intolerance. 

Symptoms of food intolerance may include any one of many physical, mental or emotional responses. Identifying a relationship to a food, a combination of foods or an environmental condition requires some sleuthing and, likely the help of a food diary.

3.  Detoxify

If we want to feel our very best during pollen season, it’s important to “clean-up” our environment. Work to create a natural, healthy home, car and workspace environment. Strive for a chemical and additive-free, fresh diet that is rich in nutrients. Reducing the number of allergenic and toxic irritants to our body frees our immune system to more effectively cope with pollens as we progress into a more tolerant health status.

Glycemic Index and Candida – How Much Sugar are you Eating?

Glycemic Index and Candida – How Much Sugar are you Eating?

by Tarilee Cornish, CNP

Rather than count grams of carbohydrates, we can limit the down side of carbohydrates by preferring particular types of carbohydrates according to how they influence our blood sugar.

For years, we divided carbohydrate types into simple and complex, with the thought that complex carbohydrates were healthier. Though this division sorts out the least nutritious foods from the most nutritious foods, it is simplistic and it fails to give us an understanding of how those carbohydrates will function in our body.

Tarilee’s Top Ten Ways to Energize during Candida Cleanse

In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn and winter bring about noticeable changes: fewer daylight hours resulting in less natural vitamin D; colder days leading to closed windows and more time indoors; local food sources change from green to starchy. Seasonal shifts can also have a profound effect on our energy levels.

Our diet changes from the cooling, energizing raw bounty to long-storing root veggies and squash with their comforting, warming energy. Colder temperatures can lead to cravings for richer “comfort” foods. The shift in our diet combined with reduced light and fresh air, usually results in slower thinking and reduced physical energy.

This is a very natural process that prepares us for the partial ‘hibernation’ of winter, insuring our bodies have a little extra stored fat for warmth. However, for most of us, the demands of our life do not decrease in the same way our available energy does. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to vitalize our mind and body. Here are ten sure ways to boost your mental acuity and physical energy.

Ten Steps to Healthier Eating During a Candida Cleanse

by T L Cornish, Certified Nutritional Practitioner

Recovery from almost any kind of health imbalance can be enhanced by a candida cleansing detoxification program. Though the colon cleansing, detoxification and immune supporting products sold by Whole Approach are important components of a wellness program, in most cases, dietary transformation will also be at the core of a successful and lasting recovery. The transition from an average diet to an optimum diet for healing and health maintenance is a journey of patience, self-observation and self-knowledge.  If your health condition is demanding change, now is the time to begin. 

Begin your healthy transition with consideration for your natural affinity for new habits. Do you like to change overnight or one small step at a time? Somewhere in between is likely best for most. In general, changes made mindfully and gradually will have lasting results. This Top Ten list will help you transition gradually to a diet that is optimal for you.
