Some things that can cause overgrowth include the use of antibiotics, birth control pills, alcohol, steroids, chronic stress, hormonal imbalances, tap water that contains chlorine and fluoride, heavy metals and a poor diet.
Here are just some of the symptoms of candida:
You can order the Candida Immune Complexes and Candida Antibodies test from your doctor. This test is the most effective because it will see if your body is having an immune response to candida. This is a test that cannot be done at home. The spittle test, where you spit into a cup of water, has been shown to be unreliable.
You do not have to get a test done before you start the Heal Candida Now program. Some estimate that candida incidence worldwide is about 75%!
This protocol is done in three phases and lasts, at a minimum, 84 days.
The first phase lasts for one week and is a green juice and protein shake cleanse.
Phase two is a whole foods detox program where certain foods are allowed, others are not.
Phase three is a re-introduction of certain foods according to a re-introduction schedule.
As a holistic health coach, I can support and guide you through this life changing protocol.
