Food is Medicine! How I Healed Chronic Bladder, Sinus & Yeast Infections!

Food as Medicine!

Food as Medicine!

For five years I was suffering from chronic bladder, sinus and yeast infections.  I had frequent headaches, moodiness, brain fog and days of extreme tiredness (I kept saying if someone would roll out a cot I would go to sleep). Since I naturally have high energy, luckily, I could save my naps for the weekend.  I went into early menopause when I was 28 (both of my kids are from donor eggs through IVF), so I was on birth control and hormone replacement therapies for years.  Turns out it was probably the Candida that was the cause of my infertility.  I had signs of Candida back in my early 20’s, (I am now in my early 40’s) such as acne, dandruff, skin rashes, bloating and vaginitis.  I was seeing an urologist and gynecologist to help with my issues.  I always thought my health issues were hormone related, but it turns out I had a yeast overgrowth in my system.  After taking a food sensitivity test with my Naturopath, I learned I had Candida.  Candida is a serious overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans.  It was recommended that I eliminate sugar, gluten, caffeine, dairy, alcohol, corn and chocolate from my diet.  I knew I would need to do something, but I had no idea it would be so radical.  At that point I was desperate.  I was allergic to many different types of antibiotics, since I was taking them for my sinus and bladder infections.  At one point I thought the house was infested with fleas because I couldn’t stop itching.  I thought I saw a flea on my dog, so we fumigated the house with flea spray powder.  After spraying the house and washing the dog in a flea bath I realized I was allergic to the antibiotics.  Oops sorry Sadie (my cute little Bichon Frise), at least you got clean!
