I know first hand how being sick can take a toll on our self-esteem, our joy and our overall quality of life. Candida Overgrowth (Candidiasis) is a very real health concern and it is not made up in how heads. People who have never suffered with candida overgrowth will not understand how life altering this sickness can be.
However, for those of us who are suffering from this medical illness and for those who have others around them who are suffering, we know how devastating and destructive Candida Overgrowth is on our bodies, mind and emotions.
Sharing My Story
The reason I decided to share my journey with you is because I know how hard, scary and downright depressing suffering with candida overgrowth can be.When I found out I was suffering from candida overgrowth, I was shocked because I had never even heard of this condition before.
I have heard “You Are What You Eat” all of my life, but I didn’t know that based on my “not great” eating habits I could be stuck with this very bothersome health condition that came with so many symptoms.
Out of all of my my very irritating symptoms my eczema was always reminding me of this very devastating condition. It was always inflamed and I was always itching all over, everyday, with no signs of relief until I was popping some Benadryls. I was only able to get through my day by taking 2 night time Benadryls, which is very damaging to your overall health.
Even though I had a long list of Symptoms, no matter what I told my doctor he said that I was fine and that I should use some hydrocortisone cream and come back in a few weeks. Never did he mention that my diet or my lifestyle could be causing me to be sick and that I should make different choices in my life for optimal health.
Needless to say, he is no longer my doctor and after 2 years of suffering I finally decided to invest the money and speak to a Naturopathic Doctor who has helped me to see the light.
Even though I cured myself of Candida Overgrowth, I was still sick due to “other factors” (I will get into this in a future post)
What I’ve learned along the way…
I was surprised to see how many individuals were suffering from various illnesses that all seemed to be connected to Candida Overgrowth. The reality is that many people are suffering from candida overgrowth and they have no idea that is what they are suffering from.
I have found that through my youtube channel many individuals have benefited from my support, encouragement and my “curing candida naturally story”.
I want to encourage you through these very challenging times, so that you know that you are NOT alone. Here you will find my personal tips and my hope is that you too, can naturally cure yourself from candida overgrowth.
I am so happy that I have successfully cured my candida overgrowth and now I want you to have your own Candida Free Success Story. Join me on this journey to stay healthy and let’s get healthy together!
What is Candida Overgrowth (Candidiasis)?
So some of you may be wondering what is Candida? Well, candida is a yeastlike, parasitic fungus that can cause thrush.
Now, candida albicans is an organism that normally lives on your skin and doesn’t bother us at all. In a matter of fact, we do need this organism to survive.
We all carry this organism on our skin, in our mouth, in our gastrointestinal tract (gut), and, in the case of women, in the vagina.
Having a small amount of candida in our bodies is actually a good thing. It acts as a natural antibiotic and helps to limit the amount of harmful bacteria
Now, my main area of concern and why I discussing this topic is because when there is an overgrowth of this fungus is results in Candidiasis.
Candidiasis is when the yeast multiplies uncontrollably, which causes pain and inflammation.
Candidiasis may affect the skin on the vagina, the penis, and the mouth. Excess candida yeast in the intestines is thought to penetrate through the intestinal wall, causing yeast and other unwanted particles to be absorbed into the body.
Candidiasis may also infect the blood stream or internal organs such as the liver or spleen. But the most common problems are skin, mouth and vaginal infections. It also is a common cause of diaper rash.
Now, candidiasis can cause very annoying and irritating infections, but they are not life threatening.
However if candidiasis reaches the bloodstream or vital organs such as the heart, it can cause death.
I should let you know that this is rare, but is you have a damaged or weakened immune system (like AIDS or cancer) those individuals are more at risk.
People can get candidiasis or thrush when there is some change in the body’s natural environment, which allows the fungus to grow out of control.
How Do You Get Candida Overgrowth (Candidiasis)?
Candidiasis is caused when a natural, living organism in our bodies, has a chance to grow out of control causing, a lot of irritating symptoms in our bodies
Now, there are many ways that this overgrowth can occur
Just to name a few it can be caused by:
- Eating a diet high in refined carbohydrates (which feed the yeast)
- Eating a diet high in refined sugars (which feed the yeast)
- Consuming a lot of alcohol
- Living a high-stress lifestyle
- Taking oral contraceptives
- Swimming, bathing in or drinking chlorinated water
Taking a round of antibiotics that killed too many of those friendly bacteria
Overall poor health
When you do these things the essential microorganisms in your body are killed off. These are the same bacteria that help keep Candida in check; when they are killed, the balance is destroyed and Candida thrives.
What Are The Symptoms Of Candida Overgrowth (candidiasis)?
There are many symptoms associated with Candida Overgrowth or persistent and constant yeast infections.
This is how you know you may have it, by discovering some symptoms:
The two tell tale signs are Constant yeast infections (vaginal, penal, mouth or outbreaks on your skin- rashes) or what I discovered Anal itching.

I am sure that even though this is an extensive list, there are so many other symptoms associated with Candida Overgrowth.
Is There A Cure or Treatment For Candida Overgrowth (candidiasis)?
There is a “simple cure” for candida overgrowth, but at the same time, it is not very simple at all.
However, I wanted to feel 100% better, so I decided to embark on a 10 Day Juice (only) Fast. By the end on those 10 Days of juicing, I felt 100% better! All of my symptoms were gone and I felt amazing.
My skin cleared up, my brain fog went away and I felt like a completely different person.
So yes, you can be 100% candida overgrowth free! But it does come at a cost. You know all of those “not so great for us” foods that we love to love? Well, those all had to go. I will get more into that here.
Will You Always Have Candida Overgrowth (Candidiasis)?
Once you’ve had candida overgrowth you are more susceptible to getting it again in the future. However, if you can remember that you can rid candida overgrowth by having a Candida Free Diet, you can be sure that you can naturally keep yourself healthy and candida overgrowth free!
