Why It Can Be Hard to Get a Clear Candida Diagnosis, Part 1

Do you feel certain that you have candida overgrowth, yet it seems that there’s no doctor who states this as your diagnosis? After spending many frustrating months hearing “it’s not candida” or “there’s no such thing as candida overgrowth,” I finally found a holistically-minded practitioner who confirmed what I had been thinking. Up until that […]

Homemade Twix Bars (Grain-Free, Sugar-Free, Egg-Free, Corn-Free, Soy-Free, Dairy-Free & optionally Nut-Free)

The Number One Question About the Candida Diet

Almost every time I begin work with someone, whether as an individual client or part of one of my programs, one of the first questions I get asked is, “When can I go back to eating my normal diet?” This makes total sense, of course: when you’re diagnosed with candida or told that you have […]

Why I Love Spirulina

When I first began studying nutrition in 2003, I learned about a class of “superfoods” called blue-green algae (yep, similar to the algae you see on lakes and other sources of standing water. Sounds incredibly appetizing, doesn’t it??). In fact, there are thousands of species of blue-green algae (technically a bacterium called cyanobacteria, but sometimes […]
