The Silent Villain: Candida and How It Can Derail Your Weight Loss Goals and Cause Cravings and Bloating

16 February

If you've been struggling to lose weight despite your best efforts, there may be an unexpected culprit lurking within your body: Candida. Candida is a type of yeast that naturally exists in our bodies, primarily in the gastrointestinal tract. Normally, it's kept in check by beneficial bacteria. However, factors like a high-sugar diet, prolonged antibiotic use, stress, and a weakened immune system can disrupt this delicate balance, leading to an overgrowth of Candida.

An overgrowth of Candida can wreak havoc on your weight loss journey. One of the main reasons is its impact on cravings. Candida thrives on sugar, and when it multiplies, it sends strong signals to your brain, making you crave sugary and carb-rich foods. These cravings can be intense and difficult to resist, making it challenging to stick to a healthy eating plan.

In addition to cravings, Candida overgrowth can contribute to bloating and digestive issues. When Candida proliferates, it can damage the intestinal lining, leading to increased permeability, also known as leaky gut syndrome. This can allow undigested food particles and toxins to leak into the bloodstream, triggering an inflammatory response and causing bloating, gas, and discomfort.

Furthermore, Candida overgrowth can disrupt your body's ability to properly absorb nutrients from food, which can impact your metabolism and hinder weight loss. This can create a vicious cycle where you're not getting the nutrients you need, leading to more cravings and potential weight gain.

To address Candida overgrowth and get back on track with your weight loss goals, it's important to adopt a comprehensive approach. This includes dietary changes, such as reducing sugar and refined carbohydrates, increasing fiber intake, and incorporating anti-fungal foods like garlic, coconut oil, and oregano. Probiotics and other supplements may also be beneficial in rebalancing the gut microbiome and supporting the immune system.

Natural Steps You Can Take To Eliminate Candidiasis:

· Do a Candidia cleanse to purge the impurities

· Drink up to a gallon of filtered water a day to flush out dead yeast cells

· Eat more veggies for fiber

· Eat more whole grains such as rye or millet

· Avoid yeast and mold containing foods (cheeses, grapes, mushrooms)

· Avoid refined foods, sugar, and alcohol

· Avoid artificial sweeteners, additives, preservatives, etc.

· Eat organic foods

· Cabbage is a wonderful source of friendly bacteria.

· Virgin Olive Oil

· Even though yogurt has concentrated Lactobacilli that will suppress unhealthy bacteria, the sugar in it feeds the unhealthy bacteria. Freeze-dried L. acidophilus supplement would be superior.

Supplements You Can Take to Eliminate Candidiasis:

· Potent Multivitamin daily

· Vitamin C - 10-15 grams a day

· Vitamin E - 400 iu a day

· Zinc Chelate 25-50 mg a day

· Pantothenic Acid - 250 mg a day

· Taurine - 500-1000 mg a day

· Essential Fatty Acids (evening primrose oil, black current oil or borage oil) - 6-8 grams a day

· Goldenseal Root - 250 mg twice a day

· Pau D'Arco - 2,000 mg twice a day

· Garlic - 2,000 mg twice a day

· Caprylic acid - 1,000 - 2,000 mg daily with food

· Chlorophyll - 100 mg daily

· Lactobacillus acidophilus - 1 tsp three times a day (Take after 8 weeks of detoxing)

· Digestive enzyme with hydrochloric acid (HCL) before and after each meal. If you have ulcers, choose a digestive enzyme without HCL.

· German chamomile tea before and after meals will help to stimulate HCL

Keep in mind it could take several months to a year to rid your body of Candidiasis, if you don't stop feeding the fungus when truing to detoxify it. It thrives on impurities and an acidic environment. Therefore, as you cleanse with supplements, it's just as important to stop destructive behaviors such as eating the foods that can cause the Candidiasis to grow.

Once you clean the yeast out of your system you will feel and look like a new person. You will find that weight control is not such a struggle and you will feel completely rejuvenated.

Candida overgrowth can significantly derail your weight loss efforts and cause unwanted cravings and bloating. By understanding the connection between Candida and weight loss, you can take proactive steps to address the issue and regain control of your health. Remember, seeking guidance from a healthcare professional or registered dietitian can provide personalized recommendations and support as you navigate your journey to overcome Candida and achieve your weight loss goals.
