Infertility is estimated to affect 1 in 6 couples. The desire to bring new life into the world is a great one and the
inability to do so can be discouraging. Couples seek out cause and resolution with infertility. There are many
causes of infertility such as estrogen dominance, deficiencies, and toxicity. The human body is designed to
reproduce and create life. The most important thing a person experiencing infertility must do is evaluate their
lifestyle. A delicate life cannot grow healthily within a sub-optimal environment, which means a mother must nourish and cleanse her body before she carries a child.
I used to think of candida as a predator, stealing all the good in my body for itself. When I first started reading about candida overgrowth and how to overcome it, I was overwhelmed by the tortuous diet that would be required. The point of the candida diet is to starve it to death. So I began by consuming only vegetables, meat, fat, almonds, and brown rice. Weight dropped off of my body like I was shedding my winter coat. I don’t recall ever feeling better in the year I was on the candida diet, in fact I felt worse. With many hospital visits and late night google searches something was still missing. On this diet I may have been starving the candida to death but the problem was, I was also starving myself.
