Navigating Dietary Challenges with Systemic Candida

by Tarilee Cornish, Certified Nutritional Practitioner

Many an impassioned healthy diet has been defeated when we are blindsided by persistent or powerful cravings. If we are not prepared for this inevitable experience, especially on a candida diet, a formidable craving can topple our resolve. Wisdom tells us that when we yield to temptation, temptation grows. This is definitely true of unhealthy food cravings.

Indulgence in misguided cravings such as those for sugar or excess starch will fuel more cravings. Once indulged craving can expand to the point that it becomes insatiable and can lead to binge eating. So we are well advised to choose our 'treat' foods carefully to include only those that we can exercise self control with while avoiding those that 'unhinge' us.

Many of today's common illnesses are related to dietary excess, including, Candida Related Complex (CRC), hypoglycemia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, ADD, obesity and more. How do we prevent ourselves from over indulging? In the case of people with special dietary needs who feel restricted from eating their habitual choices, we can work to transform our relationship with our food to a healthy, nourishing one.

   By T L Cornish, CNP   

Mind your own wisdom

Cravings for unhealthy foods represent a significant challenge to our healthy path when we get together with family and friends who are less aware of, and less sensitive to, the health impacts of our food choices. When our new food habits are offered up (through togetherness) to the scrutiny of others, it can be difficult to know how to respond to questions or criticism. Without trying to change others around you, I encourage you to find your own tactful strength and to focus inwardly on your knowledge about which foods will have the greatest benefit to the quality of your time with loved ones. Is it the two minutes of bliss from indulging in a craving or is it the fun you will have because you feel so good from making self loving food choices.
