- I find detoxification and cleansing to be very supportive of balancing and clearing our liver of all the stress hormones, like cortisol. Cortisol is secreted under times of stress and may remain elevated long after the stress has stopped. Cortisol increases insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome which gives rise to obesity, especially around the abdomen. Cortisol also slows down the thyroid so metabolism is slowed down. If this continues blood pressure rises, diabetes occurs, cholesterol elevates. Medications for these conditions then compound the problems and so on. This unfortunately is a very common scenario. It doesn’t have to be this way. There are inner wellness solutions that are natural, foundational, and supportive for longevity.
Candida is another health issue that is considered controversial because many conventional doctors do not recognize it. In my opinion it is a “great mimicker” of many other diseases just like food allergies, adrenal fatigue, and Lyme disease. I believe it’s very common and can literally affect your entire being. Candida is a term given to a complex set of symptoms that result from intestinal overgrowth of a fungus-like organism called Candida.
- First step, stop putting in your mouth beverages or food that might be toxic to your gut. Sugary or chemical laden drinks will weaken your immune system. Potential Food allergens can contribute to leaky gut and cause inflammation. Foods with chemicals, pesticides, GMO’s, commercial flour products which are mostly rancid grains stripped of any vitality. Food as to be life regenerating and be whole food. One of my favorite sayings is, “if it looks like a box, it a box! If it looks like a can, then it a can! If it looks like an apple, it’s an apple and you should eat it. (preferably Organic) but still better than a box…” After you change what goes in, then you have to support and repair and ensure proper elimination. Constipation needs to be corrected or the opposite diarrhea. Reduce the inflammation with a healing, whole foods, anti-inflammatory diet. Yes food can fight inflammation not just pain medications. Develop a good foundation of probiotics, L-glutamine, IgG Immunoglobulins, liver support and include specific products that are soothing, astringent, and support repairing of the gut.
- Typical diets help you lose weight, usually muscle weight so you are left with a higher percentage of fat mass which has a much slower metabolic burning rate. Conventional medicine and the overuse of drugs for physical and mental health issues only forces your body to work harder and this takes away vital energy from your mitochondria and metabolism. Medications may be necessary for some conditions but do not be surprised if they affect your overall metabolism. Another key determinant in your metabolism is whether you are eating any foods which your body is reacting to (food allergies).
My approach is to enhance your mitochondria, increase your muscle mass while cleansing the body, balancing any hormonal issues like adrenal fatigue, low thyroid, insulin resistance (metabolic syndrome), and paying attention to any spiritual or emotional factors that might be keeping you “stuck” and “not moving forward in your life.”

Candida is a term given to a complex set of symptoms that result from intestinal overgrowth of a fungus-like organism called Candida albicans. Issues arise when the overgrowth begins to be substantial enough to cause symptoms.
Focusing with a diet that is tailored to your needs and circumstances is key. I use a foundational approach of body cleansing, balanced and supportive diet to support gut flora, cravings, and mood. The principle is change. What do you need to change in your life to feel better? And are you willing to do what it takes to achieve inner wellness. For products I offer clients herbal and homeopathic remedies which have anti-fungal results and increasing the natural good bacteria or flora with a high-dose probiotic product.
