Size Matters – Chapter Eleven – Candida Albicans and Obesity

Posted on Updated on

Candida is my constantly battled nemesis. There are so many myths surrounding it, and Sally addresses them here. Candida is in everyone – the only difference being in its levels of strength, and therefore danger to each different system. Candida is a yeast and a fungus, but it doesn’t eat fungus or yeast – it eats carbs in any form it gets, especially sugar. Mushrooms are quite cool to eat. Read this even if you think you’re as healthy as a horse – these little sods build up on the quiet, and the sooner you find out all about them, the better.

I know that I have posted on the topic of Candida Albicans before but in the need for continuity I am including this chapter.  There are some other issues that are included that I have not mentioned before and also a recipe for Irish Soda Bread which is one of the few breads I can enjoy.

I’ve just finally lost the great granddaddy of all epic week-long headaches.  Not to mention kidney aches and a dodgy liver.  I had to go on a candida cleanse because all of that craziness with burglars sent me over the top, and all that excess cortisol must have spiked my blood sugar.  Which meant it was time to bring on the fungus killers, and so the die back symptoms.  It feels a little weird not having a headache actually – feels strangely empty in there now.  I reckon the worst of the toxin processing from the death of the little sods is over now.  I’m still not feeling overly fabulous though, so pardon me if I’m a little scarce around and about for the next day or two.  I’ll get back to normal as sharply as I can.  Just goes to show though, it doesn’t matter what you eat even if you think you’re over systemic candiasis, it’s probably always going to be there.  All it takes is a prolonged period of stress and it grabs the opportunity.  Anyway, I’m hoping that the universe allows a crazy free couple of months so I can finish all my projects before the end of the year at least.
It’s nice to still be alive.  Sort of.  Appreciate that, thank you Universe.  I’m going to start heading down the emails now and sorry if it takes me a while to catch up with everyone again, but I’ll get there.  Here’s to a happy, healthy and peaceful weekend to all.
