...Die-off is experienced differently by each person.  Most people experience die-off at some point in their recovery. There really is, however, no sure way to predict what point or to what degree one is likely to feel it. 

Some start the program and feel better almost immediately, noticing positive effects such as increased energy, better mental focus, better elimination, etc. For these folks, the die-off experience may be minimal or may occur a few weeks into the program.  Others start their yeast reduction program and experience diet off symptoms right away.

Candida Recovery, One Craving at a Time

Many of today’s common illnesses are related to dietary excess, including, Candida Related Complex (CRC), hypoglycemia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, ADD, obesity and more. How do we prevent ourselves from over indulging? In the case of people with special dietary needs who feel restricted from eating their habitual choices, we can work to transform our relationship with our food to a healthy, nourishing one.

We rise above the craving and follow a new, healthier urge.

Has it arrived to help you begin practicing the self-care that you need to insure a long life and the fullest possible self actualization?

Organically grown foods that are not sprayed or treated may be well tolerated while their conventionally-produced counterparts cause symptoms. Packaging additives may be made from allergenic substances such as cornstarch used to powder cereal bags and milk cartons.

by TL Cornish, Certified Nutritional Practitioner

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.
