In my previous blog we discussed the link from antibiotics to Candida (yeast) overgrowth. Here is a list of symptoms that are commonly linked to Candida overgrowth. Review the list carefully and see what things you may have experienced.
If you’ve been to the doctor lately for an ailment or infection, chances are you were given a prescription for antibiotics. I talk to so many people who are being given antibiotics for issues that don’t even need a prescription. The overuse of antibiotics is creating a whole new set of health issues. The biggest one is the disruption of your good and bad bacterial flora because good as well as bad bacteria are killed upsetting the natural balance in the colon which contributes to Candida (yeast) overgrowth. The result—a compromised immune system which leads to…more health problems.
Do you battle with constant or chronic sugar cravings? Maybe the cravings just hit you mid-afternoon or when you get stressed out? Maybe the cravings for sugar include that glass of wine when you get home at night? It’s hard to feel good about yourself, stay healthy and energized when you’re a slave to the sugar train.
If you are stressed out, tired and always running it’s time to make a shift and take better care of yourself and connect with your “me.” I talk with many people who tell me they can’t create time for themselves – yet they are worn out and not happy. I know people who chronically create their day with so many things on their to do list, there is hardly breathing room.
Are you tired of winter yet? Had enough of the snow and cold? Wish you could go to a tropical island and warm up? If you live in a cold weather place, by February winter can get old. With the shorter days, being too cold to go outside for long and noticing that last summer’s tan has long since faded.
