We consume a lot of sugar!
The average North American consumes over seventy pounds of sugar each year! As you can imagine, this causes many health problems—from obesity to diabetes and cancer, to name a few. Candida is one of the most difficult sugar-related disorders to diagnose and can cause many serious complications.
What is candida?
Candida is a yeast that naturally occurs in and on the human body and it is usually harmless; however, once it starts feeding off extra sugar in the body and multiplying rapidly, it can cause a person to become seriously ill. The symptoms are so wide-ranging, making it difficult for many doctors to diagnose it.
How Living Candida Free helps:
In Living Candida Free: 100 Recipes and a 3-Phase Program to Restore Your Health and Vitality, registered holistic nutritionist Ricki Heller, with functional nutritionist Andrea Nakayama, outlines a health plan and diet designed to help others combat candida overgrowth. There are four principles: restoring good digestion, detoxifying the body, repopulating the gut with healthful bacteria, and coping with other imbalances.
Heller outlines a three-phase vegan, sugar-free, and gluten-free Anti-Candida Diet (ACD) designed to starve the yeast while nurturing the rest of the body. The phases of the ACD are flexible and cued by how readers are progressing. Heller’s meal plans feature delicious, nutritious recipes including treats like:
- Mojito Smoothie
- Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles
- Emergency Fudge
- Grain-Free Apple Berry Crumble
