Now that I’m an (ahem) mature woman who has been with my spouse for almost two dozen years, I can honestly say that I don’t know a single female friend who doesn’t have at least one cringe-worthy relationship in her past. What’s usually worse, most of us have had the same cringe-worthy relationship. ..several times, […][Continue reading…] about Does your food do this for you?
If you follow a restricted diet for health reasons, you have likely experienced setbacks at some point.

Ever since I first started my anti-candida diet, I’ve been asked this question countless times (before the ACD, the most common question I was asked was, “When are you due?” Yes, really.). This week, on my YouTube channel, I was asked once again in the comments: “Can you show us what you eat?” In this […][Continue reading…] about How to Deal with Setbacks, Part One

For the first 6-7 years […][Continue reading…] about How I Got Out of the Symptom Swamp
The other day, I had a sudden realization: although I often refer to myself as “95% symptom-free, 99% of the time,” it has actually been over a year since my last symptom flare-up. Ever since I first healed from candida in 2010 (I started the diet and protocol in 2009), I always felt that candida […][Continue reading…] about Two key shifts that helped me clear my candida
