Real Food for a Change* - Tarilee's Top Ten Steps to Healthier Eating for Detoxification and Cleansing

by T L Cornish, Certified Nutritional Practitioner

Recovery from almost any kind of health imbalance can be enhanced by a candida cleansing detoxification program. Though the colon cleansing, detoxification and immune supporting products sold by Whole Approach are important components of a wellness program, in most cases, dietary transformation will also be at the core of a successful and lasting recovery. The transition from an average diet to an optimum diet for healing and health maintenance is a journey of patience, self-observation and self-knowledge.  If your health condition is demanding change, now is the time to begin. 

Begin your healthy transition with consideration for your natural affinity for new habits. Do you like to change overnight or one small step at a time? Somewhere in between is likely best for most. In general, changes made mindfully and gradually will have lasting results. This Top Ten list will help you transition gradually to a diet that is optimal for you.

Remember to tune into the WholeApproach Support Forum for information, recipes and support. And if, at any point in your transitions, you need reassurance, you can reach for inspiration by reading the success stories of those who came before you in their own quest for a healthier relationship to food.

Top Five Tips for Skillfully Managing Candida Die-Off

by T L Cornish, CNP

 

 

"Die-off" is a slang term used to describe the phenomenon that accompanies any significant death of pathogenic organisms in the body. This effect is especially noticeable when candida yeast are killed off by anti-fungal use. This happens because their by-products or mycotoxins are released most when they die. If too many yeast are killed at once (due to agressive anti-fungal treatment), transient problems arise. Mycotoxins are known neurotoxins so increasing the levels too dramatically at one time can produce both physical and emotional/mental symptoms. Generally speaking, most people experience die-off as an exaggeration of their existing candida-related symptoms or as worsening of chronic health conditions.

Too much discomfort indicates that your eliminative organs have become overwhelmed with the cleansing work of trying to clear the mycotoxins (or in the case of detoxification, whatever other toxins you are eliminating from your tissues by cleaning up your diet or catalysing cleansing through herbal products.)

Candida Symptoms - Diagnosis Often Missed

Posted by Nutrition Team on Sun, Feb 12, 2012 @ 12:43 PM

Candida Symptoms:

Candidiasis or Candida Related Complex can present a wide variety of symptoms, the exact combination and severity of which are unique to each individual case. Because candidiasis can manifest itself through many seemingly unrelated symptoms, the diagnosis is very often missed. Please see our self-administered Symptom Assessment Questionnaire on our Candida Diet page. Candida symptoms are usually chronic and include but are not limited to the following:

What is Candida?

What is Candida?©

by Andrew Gutauskas

Overview

It has been nearly three decades since C. Orian Truss, MD, an allergist in Birmingham, Alabama, presented to a medical forum his observation that depressed patients are affected by a yeast organism called Candida albicans. This yeast was not a new or unique discovery as it had been treated by gynecologists and pediatricians for years in the form of vaginitis in women and thrush in infants. What was remarkable about Truss's report was drawing the relationship between clinical depression, a "mental" disorder and yeast, an infective organism usually associated only with superficial human infections. Truss presented a series of papers on the injury the yeast organism Candida subjects the human body to in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. By the early 1980's, other physicians interested in chronic illness and allergy began to explore yeast's relationship in causing numerous unexplained illnesses. By the late 1980's, the medical community became divided into two camps: those who "believed" in the condition known as systemic candidiasis or CRC (Canadida Related Complex) and those who did not believe in it. The believers largely consisted of alternative medical practitioners who already subscribed to many theories lying outside the medical mainstream; the nonbelievers began to publish editorials in the orthodox medical journals claiming that the yeast syndrome was a fad and did not have any legitimacy in medical diagnosis or treatment.
