Case studies: Candida, 42 yr old.
This client had candida (virgina yeast infection) problem when she came. Every few months, since 2 yrs ago, she had to face this problem. Candida albicans is part of our natural microflora that commonly live in or on our bodies. It can be found in the GI tract, mouth and the vagina.
She had been putting on weight since 2017 despite exercising (yoga) 2 to 4 times a week. She also had bad bloatedness, water retention and constantly craved for sweets before menses. No supplements eg. probiotics, fish oil, tumeric could help reduce her candida.
She never thought that her diet was the problem.
Let me show you her typical diet prior to coming to @BodyInc for detox:
Breakfast - granola with greek yogurt (dairy) and nuts/ Latte (sugar)/ fish ball noodle (wheat/gluten).
Lunch - avocado toast (yeast+wheat/gluten), scrambled eggs (dairy), almond nut butter with bread (nut and wheat).
Tea-time - chocolate every other day (dairy & sugar). Scones (wheat). Bubble tea (sugar).
Dinner - Chinese restaurant.
Her dinner was the only proper one. Otherwise her diet was full of dairy, nuts, yeast, wheat and sugar which are the very contributors to overgrowth of yeast. There was a lack in fruits and veg, and a proper unrefined complex carbs like rice.
I put her on a 21 day detox program. She was lethargic on 1st day. First 3 days she had hard stools. Subsequently stools became normal and bowel movement was 2-3 times daily. By day 10, she had no more bloating. She used to rely on ru yi oil for her very bad bloating and used to feel hungry easily. Now she no longer had cravings or hunger for no reason.
I told her to avoid salads and dressings. Café food is a no-no for her.
By day 21, she had no more candida problem. Now she knows what I meant by no cravings. When she first saw me, she couldn’t understand how could anyone have no cravings. She thought, "Maybe Jacelyn is not a foodie that’s why she has no cravings." But apparently she interviewed some friends who ate everything and they had no cravings.
Well, people who eat proper food usually don't put on weight easily compared to those who eat less.
