Candida is an overgrowth of yeast (fungus) that can be anywhere in the body, however I only experienced this in my stomach (gut) which occurs with an overgrowth of an intestinal organism called Candida Albicans due to over-use of antibiotics, overgrowth of yeast, stress or a diet high in sugar. Candida can also effect the blood stream as well as internal organs such as your liver or spleen. Check out my Candida Program for more information if you are experiencing the below symptoms.

The side effects vary, however some common symptoms of Candida are:

  • Skin rashes
  • Headaches
  • Brain fog
  • Food allergies
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Digestive issues
  • Skin rashes
  • Constipation (check out my Constipation Program for more information if you are experiencing symptoms)
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating
  • Chronic fatigue

I had to remove many foods from my lifestyle when I had yeast in my stomach including sugar, dairy, gluten, white flours, vinegar and many others listed below.  I took billions, YES Billions of probiotics daily to keep my good bacterial in my stomach, which helps fight off your bad bacteria. I took natural anti-fungals such as oil of oregano, Dr. Ohhira’s Probioitcs and grapefruit seed extract, which were helpful but I recommend only taking these with your Integrative M.D.’s supervision. To order Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics use code: Amie6 for Free First Class Mail shipping and a Free Sample Size of the Kampuku Soap with any order.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Hi Amie, not sure if you answered Jan’s question there.

    I’m with Jan on this. You simply posted every food known to humans. Back to Jan’s question, what foods can you eat?

    1. Hi Graham,
      All of that information is located in our Candida Program on our Programs Page. Thank you!
