Wellness Wednesday - There is More to Getting Healthy Than Just Losing Weight

Welcome to my first Wellness Wednesday!  I am really looking forward to discussing getting well from the inside out.

I want to start this series with a topic that is just beginning to be discussed when talking about weight loss - Candida.  Candida albicans—tiny yeast organisms like fungi and mold—may seem harmless but when it overgrows, it affects almost all bodily systems.  

Everyone has Candida.  A little bit of trivia for you, it is needed to decompose our bodies when we die.  In its right amount, it doesn't cause any problems.  But, because our environment encourages Candida growth, most people have overgrowth and don't realize it.  The following list contains a few things that can cause Candida growth.

  • Taking antibiotics
  • Taking steroids
  • Taking birth control pills  
  • Using chlorinated pools or/and Jacuzzis  
  • Eating a high-sugar, high-carb diet 
  • Using antibacterial soap   

Do you have some health issues that just won't go away?  Many can be rooted in Candida overgrowth.
  • Being moody
  • Depressed
  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Post nasal drip
  • Rashes
  • And trouble losing weight
The good news is there is help!  Probiotics can counteract the overgrowth and start healing your gut. 

Do some research on probiotics.  Choosing the right one will make all the difference.  That along with changing your diet.

Sign up today and I will send you my series that goes into greater depth and detail.
