In 2005 I was preparing for my second maternity leave. The company I worked for hired a temp to replace me while I was away, and my job was to train her. A talented and likable lady, she soon found her niche with us. She was on a very strict diet when she started, and explained it was because of her Candida problem. I learned that Candida has many symptoms besides the obvious, embarrassing ones. Symptoms such as:
- joint pain;
- bad breath;
- body odor;
- skin problems;
- foggy brain;
- depression and more.
I was curious, but, heavily pregnant, I didn’t pursue it at that stage.
Now, 6 years later, with the same symptoms, I thought I’d give it a try. Everything I’ve ever found online about Candida diets has been conflicting. Finally, this month, I found this site: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/. I’ve just started on stage 1, and for these first few days I’ve had a headache, but I already have more energy and a flatter stomach.
