Hi, I’m Paula. Our candida journey, like most people’s, started long before we realized it. We were in our early 20’s with two young boys. . .a young family with a bright future.
But in the matter of a few years, our lives were turned upside down. . .
My father-in-law passed away from an intense battle with cancer that took over his body in a matter of months.
We gave birth to a beautiful baby girl – stillborn 4 days before her due date. There aren’t even words. . .
And the strange health problems my husband, Travis had suffered with for several years were steadily escalating.
Over the next year we visited multiple doctors and specialists – and eventually grew tired of them suggesting it was ‘all in his head’. We found a naturopath near us and learned that Travis had Lyme disease and candida.
Hearing ‘Lyme disease’ scared us. And when our naturopath said that nearly everyone had candida, we made the quick and foolish decision to ignore it and focus solely on Lyme – going so far as to travel across the country to an alternative clinic for Lyme in 2008.
While at the clinic we learned Travis had several allergies, gluten being the main one. Between the clinic and going gluten-free, Travis’s symptoms eased. . .for a while.
We heard about the book Nourishing Traditions and, after devouring it from cover to cover, realized that eating gluten-free wasn’t a good enough answer. Further research told us that many of the foods we ate (i.e. starches and even natural sugars) were feeding a common and underestimated problem called. . .candida.
Light bulb! There was that word again.
We decided candida needed a second look and started researching. We found that nearly all of the ‘little’ health issues we’d both been suffering from (brain fog, weight gain, inflammation, joint pain, skin rashes, etc.) pointed straight back to candida.
Further research told us that candida was supposed to be a ‘simple’ fix. All we had to do was stop eating sugar and starches. So we found a candida diet that looked strict enough for a monk and were told we needed to follow it for 30 months. IF we cheated even once, we had to start the process all over again.
Suffice it to say, even though we gave it our best shot, we failed miserably.
Our candida journey became a quest beyond diet and anti-fungals. We spent several years digging, researching, reading, experimenting, and eventually I became certified as a health specialist and metabolic nutritional coach.
Over time we started putting the puzzle pieces together and implementing them. Our candida overgrowth and symptoms eased, then disappeared, and have been kept in control since.
The events in our lives change us. We become who we are because of them. Our events taught us to embrace a healthier lifestyle and created a passion to take care of the bodies God gives us.
Today I have the honor of sharing my knowledge and passion with others around the world. My focus is in helping those with recurring candida and stubborn weight due to their gut health.
If you’re tired of being told ‘it’s all in your head’. . .if you’re ready to knock your food cravings to the curb. . .if you want your recurring yeast infections, mood swings, skin rashes, and painful digestive issues to be a thing of the past, you’re right where you need to be.
Phase 1 begins with an introduction to healthier eating where you’ll receive a menu plan, recipes, and a shopping list to make getting started a breeze.
Along with making gentle changes to your diet, you’ll have detailed information and instructions on the cornerstone strategies – the very foundation – of what makes a successful candida protocol.
Just like opening the windows and deep cleaning your house in the spring, your body needs some spring cleaning of its own.
In Phase 2 you’ll follow a strategic series of detailed protocols to clean up the trash and clear it out of your body so it’s ready to get serious and tackle candida at its core in Phase 3.
In Phase 3 you’re getting candida where it hurts, by tightening the belt with dietary changes and integrating carefully planned attacks.
You’ll be attacking it from every angle: how it grows, how it thrives, and the biofilms that protect it. This phase shakes candida to its core.
Phase 4 is full of surprises – for candida that is. You’ll be identifying those items that are problematic and taking them away.
Those discoveries begin a wave of renewed health that pulls the final rug out from under candida’s feet – so you can blossom in Phase 5.
Phase 5 – the final phase that not only reveals what your new diet and lifestyle is going to look like from here on out, but it’s also going to reveal a renewed you!
Your body will be transformed from inside out, and this phase will show you how to keep it that way!
Our membership area gives you access to the entire Phase 1-5 protocol, webinars, cooking classes, and consultation calls. Plus over 20 downloadable menu plans, cheatsheets, checklists, and more. . .it’s all inside.
You’ll have unlimited 24/7 access whether you’re on your phone, laptop, tablet, or desktop.
Have questions? Need help with a recipe? Need to talk to someone going through the same phase you are?
As a member of our private Facebook group, you’ll have access to Paula as well as the loving support and accountability of other members.
Ask questions, connect, and visit with your Kicking Candida family as you move along your journey.
You and other members of Kicking Candida can connect for a 1 hour, live webinar call with Paula and special guest speakers each month. Chat face-to-face with experts who share valuable content and actionable steps – with the opportunity to ask all your questions. (See a list of previous and upcoming speakers here.)
Missed part of the webinar when the phone rang? Want to review the topic again?
Each webinar will be recorded and stored in our video library with full access to view whenever it’s convenient for you.
Once a month you’ll be able to ask Paula all your burning questions – and discuss them live for 30 minutes! Need help with a recipe? Have a question about a supplement? Need suggestions on meals? What about the latest candida research?
These live calls are fun, informative, and brings our community together – a family fighting for the same cause.
Psst. There will be drawings for candida-friendly foods, ingredients, products, and all sorts of goodies to make your journey easier so make sure you’re there!
Can’t make the live Q&A’s? Maybe you’d rather watch it when it’s most convenient for you. Don’t miss the fun, the questions, and the information we chat about each month – simply grab a healthy snack and sit down with us no matter what time of day it is.
Paula brings you some of her favorite recipes and cooking techniques in these recorded cooking videos. You’ll learn about cooking with sugar alternatives, converting recipes, and healthy, traditional cooking practices with whole foods.
Have a recipe or cooking question you want answered – as a member you can make special requests and then cook them with Paula, right in your own kitchen.
Healing Candida with Food is brimming with over 130 recipes that can grace your table any day of the week and are sure to please everyone in your family whether or not they have candida.
The Sweeter Side of Candida is the answer to sweets and desserts for someone on a candida diet. With over 70 recipes from cookies, cakes, and candy, you’ll find something special for any occasion.
Candida on Ice brings you over 20 delicious ice creams, smoothies, and frozen treats especially crafted for those with candida. Do you miss the delightful way cold ice cream melts in your mouth? Well, perk up Buttercup, because now all you need is a spoon!
When you begin various phases of the program, you’ll get four weekly menu plans, with recipes hand-selected by Paula, right at your fingertips.
You get 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, and 7 suppers each week (over 250 recipes total) – so if you take into account leftovers and adding in your own favorite (compliant) recipes here and there, you’ll have plenty of recipes to bring to the family dinner table.
Legally, we can not claim that this program will cure your candida. And in fact, our goal isn’t to get rid of it (it’s a normal part of your gut flora), but to get it back under control and to create a healthy gut microbiome.
But when you commit to dealing with candida, we will do everything needed to help you succeed. After going through our course, completing all modules and lessons and implementing the course recommendations, if you do not see positive results, we will refund your money. Read our disclaimer here.
This program is fantastic for both candida sufferers and those who suspect it. The program is designed not only for candida, but for gut health, food allergies, inflammation, adrenal fatigue and a host of other issues that can be indirectly caused by candida.
This program is unique and unmatched in that:
1. you receive 1-on-1 support from a coach with first-hand experience, group support via the Facebook group, live Q& A’s, live webinars with expert guest speakers, free candida cooking classes, and optional phone consultations.
2. this program is designed with five phases that delve into much more than just the ‘allowed’ and ‘not allowed’ candida food list. It is a head-to-toe rejuvenating course that covers you from inside out, and everything in between.
3. candida isn’t a one-size-fits-all problem – everyone’s symptoms vary. But one factor that remains the same for everyone is the need for excellent support and guidance.
This program is very beneficial, but the change in diet and health protocols involved will stir up toxins that shouldn’t be addressed until after your pregnancy is over and you’re done breastfeeding.
When you purchase the Kicking Candida program, you have full access for 1 year.
There are five phases and each phase varies in length based on you as an individual. Some members can complete a phase in a few weeks where others need more time. (We estimate that IF you were to go through the protocol one phase right after another, it would take 9-12 months. BUT – that doesn’t take into consideration. . .life. 😉
The program is planned out in a way that is easy and doable for everyone, but it’s important to listen to your body. If you find that 1 year is not long enough, simply contact Paula and she can discuss extensions with you.
Absolutely! The support you receive in this program is second to none. You can ask questions in the private Facebook group, during our monthly live Q&A’s, and on optional phone consultations.
