Going Yeast Bustin'

Ok, I did it. I've been talking about it forever and have tried it - unsuccessfully - many times in the past. I've made it 6 weeks on the Candida Diet previously before the sugar craving put down it's mean little foot and slapped me silly for even thinking I could go sweet free.

But this time, I have a secret weapon. And a plan.

Yeast overgrowth in the body can cause so many things, from fatigue to all over body aches, to constant itching - and not just in the girly bits. During my last half-hearted attempt, my naturopathic doctor told me that since my body was so broken, it would take at least 6 months of being off of sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast and alcohol before it could start to heal itself properly. That's a depressing statement. But I fully agree with her.

This time around, I'm going a more direct route - a 15 day cleanse, complete with powders and pills to take twice a day. 

And to make it even more wonderful - and effective - I'm also taking a fiber supplement twice a day.

Bottom's up! Wish me luck.

It's only 15 days. I can do it. Just take the supplements and stay away from sugar and everything else on the huge list on the fridge.

If you do it (and think it works) i'll totally follow suit! I need to get some of that yeast out of my system. I'm a huuuuge carb/bread lover, but so far i'm happy living in my bubble.

Tonight's dose nearly did me in. What have I gotten myself into? Have to think Big Picture. Have to stay Positive. Eep!

Wow. Seriously?! I have a lifetime problem (well, since 7th grade) with this skin fungus thing. I get it about twice a year, and creams/sprays never work on it, so I have to take the oral stuff (di-something?)... It's really bad for your kidneys... I wonder if this would help...

Thanks ladies! I'll be posting some updates later tonight, but you can find the candida cleanse at and the herbal fiber blend at
I bought them both from my chiropractor's office, but they're also available at my health food store.

Still hanging in there, day 4. Woot!

Bethsix - probably Diflucan? Been there, done that.
