Is your body out of wack?
Last February I took an antibiotic that just wiped my system out. I completed the antibiotics and continued to have diarrhea and loose bowls. I lost weight, was basically in bed a lot. Just so weak and I didn't have any energy. My mind was foggy and my stomach hurt. I went to the emergency room I think 3 times, the instacare once, and my doctor at least 3 times. They really didn't help me.
I finally talked to my friend and she told me about Candida. It's just when the sugars and yeasts in your system start to take over. So I started the Candida cleanse diet. It was so hard, because I went off sugar and bread cold turkey. Just ate meat, veggies, and a bit of fruit. I saw progress daily. It was amazing. I am still not completely over it. I have noticed that taking these professional grade probiotics really helps. I don't know if it was totally Candida. But, I do know that sugar can have a damaging affect on the body. Especially where my digestive tract was so weak.
What you put in your body can have such an affect on how you feel, it can also affect your hormones.
So, if you ever feel like your system is out of wack. Or if you just don't feel like you have as much energy as you used to have....try easing up on the sugar and eating more fruits and vegetables. Also, make sure you are taking a multivitamin daily.
I have learned so much about the healing power of food through my experience. If you eat more fruits and vegetables and less junk, you will have more energy, you won't be sick as much, your skin will glow, etc.
Thanks for listening. Hope this helps someone out there in the blogger world.
