A flood of embarrassment washed over me. I sat in the noisy restaurant, acutely aware of the party of fresh, giggling young women to our left - and suddenly I saw myself with new eyes.
Flaking, itchy skin rashes covered my arms, back, and chest - and I'd recently noticed it creeping up my neck. I knew without glancing in a mirror that dark circles framed my eyes, a telltale sign of the recurring headaches that, more often than not, turned into crushing migraines.
My already bloated stomach felt even bigger. I shifted further down in my seat, sure everyone would know about the intense food cravings I battled that left me frustrated and guilty.
I sighed deeply. What was wrong with me? Why was I so tired? moody? and ready to commit a felony for peanut butter and chocolate?
I get it.
I've been in your shoes. Struggling with cravings, brain fog, headaches, bloating, and other symptoms that come with candida before I even knew what it was.
But I've also rejoiced. Rejoiced in clear skin, in headache-free days, and the ability to walk past someone eating a Reese's Pieces without attacking.
Through research, trial and error, working with naturopaths and alternative doctors, and a lot. of. reading., my world of candida, poor gut health, and weight gain has made a 360 degree turn.
And I'm here to help YOU achieve the same.
