A trip to a doctor is never simple for me. I don't go in, take what they say as gospel and leave with a prescription; but you all know that by now. If they body is ailing, I want to know how it happened not what to do to put a band aid on it. I will never settle for the "we don't know" routine or "there aren't answers" gig. The body never gets sick or attacked just because. There is always a reason. Always. That has been my quest. My passion.
Why are so many of my friends; good moms and wives , sick, broken, exhausted, depressed, compromised in every way before they even hit 40? Why are there so many kids with problems that just never existed a few decades ago? Why is it that I can teach a class and at least half of the class comes up afterwards telling me their story of health struggles that go unanswered and of their kids who are failing to thrive? What has changed and what is the root cause?
I have asked these questions for the last several years , at least, and studied intensely in the last several months and what I have learned is something that is so very seldom discussed. I even called Dr.s offices this week and they didn't even know how to test for it. Naturopaths will know what you are talking about most of the time and there are amazing books out there, but the mainstream world is clueless. It is time you know what may be rocking your world. I warned you that this is going to be long. But, we all need to know. We all should be searching for answers.
YEAST. CANDIDA. We all have it in our bodies. It is nothing new to the world but what is new is how it has taken over our bodies. How it has destroyed. It is how we feed it, how we let it take over that we need to understand. Let's chat.
In our bodies we have the good bacteria that are the soldiers to protect us from all the bad that is around us; the toxins, the germs, the heavy metals we intake. They guard the stomach, line the intestines, keep the harmful yeast in check. However, the good soldier bacteria can be destroyed which allows the evil yeast to overtake. They are destroyed by our worlds overuse of antibiotics, contaminated foods, stress, hormones, steroids, etc. When the good bacteria are then taken out, the yeast can overtake the body. The yeast thrives in the body. They love sugar, carbs, cheese, processed foods. Perfect; that is America's daily dish and if we didn't have enough hormone problems of our own, let's add it to our food as well! The yeast attack the mucous lining of the body which are everywhere in the body. Mucous membranes keep the body lubricated but when yeast attacks, they go into overdrive. The yeast actually grows into tissues. They permeate and by doing so, go from the stomach to the bloodstream. They release toxins, creating a poisonous body, if you will. They cause all the mucous membranes to inflame and attack instead of protect the body. Once the yeast is allowed to flourish , it spins out of control until it is stopped.
Because the body is now attacking itself, we have autoimmune diseases created. Those auto immune diseases that Dr.'s just can't explain. Bet your doctor never checked you for yeast. Women are far more susceptible to have yeast issues as our hormones are more apt to get us into trouble. Especially when pregnant.
What does yeast feel like? Many of you have had the annoying yeast infection but that is just one area. Yeast can start as a stomach issue: nausea, bloating, cramping, pain, constipation or diarrhea, colic in babies, colitis, chron's. Yeast starts here. You may start to get food sensitivities. Allergies get worse. Headaches are very common, migraines even. You can become hypoglycemic or have hypothyroidism as the endocrine system is compromised. You may get endometriosis or other reproductive disorders , bone aches, inflamed joints, coughs, asthma,stuffiness, sore throats. Any area of the body can be inflamed as histamines are released. Immunity is compromised.
Neurological issues may arise as the yeast toxins affect the brain. There are forgetfulness, speech problems, spaciness, vision issues, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. ADD and ADHD in children, autism, developmental delays.
You can become sensitive to smells and chemicals that never bothered you before.(big one for me). The skin can be a tell tale sign; acne, rashes, itchiness, eczema.
You go to a doctor and they prescribe you with thyroid medication, depression medication, Ritalin for the kids, antibiotics for the cough. They never look at why the body is working against itself. It is a vicious cycle as the pills create even more havoc. I have never heard of anyone being healed from an autoimmune disease by drugs. Only masked.
The yeast must be killed. The environment in the body needs to be changed so that the good bacteria can come back in its stead and once again protect the body as it should. The good news is that there is a way to do it. It doesn't have to be expensive. It is natural. You can feel good again. They body can heal.
If you suspect a yeast issue; treat it. The body will never heal if the yeast is not in check. If you have some issues, I can almost guarantee that you have troubles with yeast. The body generally is not sick if the good bacteria is doing its job and is not compromised. It will only help.
If you have access to a naturopath, ask for an Organic Acids Test. It will tell you if you have a yeast issue and trouble with bad bacteria, which goes hand in hand. If you don't , treat it like you do. You can try a spit test that may indicate if you have an issue. Spit in a cup of water first thing in the am before you eat or brush your teeth. Not the clearing your throat spit. Just spit and if the spit starts to string down to the bottom, it is yeasty. If it stays in a ball at the top, you usually are asymptomatic. I had three kids just tested on the Organic Acids Test and their spit help true to this test.
I firmly believe that we should all do a little yeast cleanse now and then. The more I learn about yeast, the more I am understanding the link between almost everything under the sun, even acne, fertility problems and weight gain. If my little Tate starts to get goofy, aggressive or spacey again, I know our yeast is back. Once you have a gut problem, you are almost certain to have a problem now and then.
What can you do? Here is why I am ready to blog about this now. I didn't really have a good natural product that I wanted to tell you about before. I have been experimenting, having my naturopaths office experiment, and reading up on everything I could get my hands on. I found a great product. It has all the components that I have studied about being the best way to treat naturally and it is in one great little package. Better yet, she is letting me carry it. This lady, Jonell Francis is a mother warrior like myself and many of you. She was having severe health problems for 10 years with no answers. She didn't take "because" for an answer and found the answer. She cured herself and now, so many others with her yeast products. I have talked to her for the last couple of weeks and found a kindred spirit.
She has a great cookbook, "The feel Good Cookbook", cleanse kits and drops for kids. The ingredients are simple and pure, no harmful fillers. She has amazing success stories and testimonies on her products. You can visit her website here.
You can read her stories and look at the ingredients contained. I would never advocate or carry a product that I did not have faith in. I can't wait to get this to you.
I do not want these sweet little children and sweet, dedicated moms to slip into the trappings of auto immune disease that are robbing them of life. We cannot become what we are to be in this life if we are sick. We cannot serve as we want, grow as we would like. It is not fair. We must take our health into our own hands. We must not let Dr.'s tell us what to do or give us the band aide solution. You must fight for your health, eat clean and listen to your body. Our world is polluted. I am convinced that that is not going to change but we can change.
If you have questions, please email or call me. There is so much to share but then I would just be writing a book. You can read some great books out there also if you want to become an expert. Some of my favorite reads are The Yeast Connection, The Yeast Connection and The Woman, The Yeast Syndrome, Nourishing Hope and Back to Health: A Comprehensive Guide to Managing Yeast Related Illness. They are all great reads.

I will be happy to answer any questions. I am hearing great reports on the kids drops and eczema. Huge results.
When treating the yeast, it is very important that you have a probiotic to help put the good bacteria in the body and help destroy the yeast as well.
Saccharomyces Boulardii by New Beginnings is a probiotic specific for yeast. It is $20 for the bottle.
