Listen up, ladies. For many women, candida – a build up of yeast in the body – is often the covert cause of unpleasant symptoms we might not think to link together. A bit unsettling, yes, but take comfort in knowing there’s a simple solution for it. Holistic health coach and women’s health expert, Nicole Granato, is sharing a bit of critical knowledge on candida and an easy yet effective way to get it under wraps. Don’t suffer; read up and take charge with a natural remedy that’s probably in your pantry already…
As women we naturally have yeast in our body. What’s essential to understand is that when we build up too much of that yeast is when it starts getting in the way of wellness. Candida overgrowth can greatly effect our entire body, including: digestion, skin, hormones, fertility, mood, energy levels and even depression. Specifically, yeast can be the cause of migraines, weight gain, weight loss issues, anxiety, chronic fatigue, infertility, cystic acne, bloating, pain during sex, missed periods and hair loss.
Fortunately, a simple apple cider vinegar cleanse can eliminate excess yeast and help bring our bodies back to balance. Here’s what you need to know:
The Common Culprits: Candida and yeast infections are more common in women taking birth control pills, women that are recently pregnant or post pregnancy, and women who consume lots of sugar, coffee or dairy.You do not need a full yeast infection to have yeast lingering in your body. Some people are more prone to yeast and candida build up naturally. Everybody has candida – it’s just important to know how to manage it.
The ACV Solution: To help combat yeast and candida build up in the body, drinking apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water twice daily is the best all-natural solution. Buying apple cider vinegar is easy and affordable. I highly recommend Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. You want to look for vinegar that is not overly processed and contains the “mother,” which is a muggy like substance that settles at the bottom of the bottle. This contains all of the miracle enzymes that make apple cider vinegar an extremely powerful health tonic. To cleanse with ACV, use twice daily for at least two weeks. If you continue daily, you can more down to once a day. The benefits of this drink are extraordinary – I highly support continuing daily.
The Black List: Yeast and candida feed on sugar – these are two things you want to avoid 100% while on the cleanse. This includes eliminating citrus and acidic fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemons, tomatoes, pineapple and limes from your diet. If you decide to continue taking apple cider vinegar daily, you can implement citrus fruits back into your diet after you complete the cleanse.
