Why I Can Help You
Over a decade ago, I found myself in a corporate job out of college when my body started to shut down. You name it, I had it. You name the doctor, I saw them. Over 500 doctors, Mayo Clinic, two bone marrow biopsies, muscle biopsies, Lyme disease, PCOS, Candida, Leaky Gut, C-diff Colitis, Hypothyroidism, Epstein Bar….the list goes on and on and on. I was put on pain killers, steroids and water pills – Band-Aid solutions – at the age of 22 and was told that was all doctors could do for me. I felt lost; I felt confused and most of all I felt like no one was on my team. I had to figure out how to be a team of one and heal my own life. I learned that I could not just settle and listen to one doctor – I had to take little bits of knowledge from all the doctors I encountered and put together the pieces of my own puzzle. I am delighted to be by your side as you embark on your own health journey. I am here to share with you all the information that I have learned over my ten years of illness and take a holistic approach to your healing process.
What is Candida?
The scary thing is, you can have Candida overgrowth in your body and not even know it! That’s what happened to me for a decade. It wasn’t until the end of my journey that I realized Candida was causing my liver enzymes to be sky high and keeping me in chronic muscle pain and constant brain fog. Candida is a form of Dysbiosis, which is an overgrowth of bad bacteria in your body (Read more about Dysbiosis on my Dysbiosis Page and Program), which affects your entire body’s well-being. There are many symptoms of Candida, but having a white tongue or bloated belly is a dead giveaway! However, many of us have Candida without having any of those visible symptoms! For me, my Candida was in my sinuses- causing Sinus issues every Fall/Spring and in my gut causing bloating. Candida is very hard to test for, which is why most doctors don’t address it and it’s often misdiagnosed as SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth), which is not helpful.
Candida Albicans actually means ‘white’ which is the color of Candida. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Candida is a part of the yeast family and is actually a yeast infection. Many people assume that yeast infections occur only in the vaginal area, but it’s possible (myself as an example) to not have any yeast in your vaginal area and instead have it in your mouth, sinuses, gut and in other areas of your body. The funny thing is, that we all have a little bit of Candida inside of our bodies or on our skin, but our good, friendly bacteria keeps it tamed and balanced. However, when the bacteria in our body is imbalanced, Candida bacteria multiply, causing chronic muscle pain, hormone imbalance, migraines, constipation, bloating, stomach discomfort, nausea, etc., and can closely resemble many autoimmune diseases such as Lyme disease and Fibromyalgia.
These manifestations in the body are forms of inflammation and they cause a lot of inflammation, as well. The goal is not to fight the inflammation- the goal is to get to the root cause of what is causing the Candida and learn how to balance your immune system so that it can fight off the Candida. Inflammation can be caused by anything from stress, mold, pesticides, mercury, hidden parasites, bacteria and viruses as well as from eating an inflammatory diet filled with table salt, sugar, white flours, refined vegetable oils and processed foods, all of which lack nutrients that our body needs on a daily basis to function optimally. Most of the time, the root cause of the inflammation is toxicity, which is why it’s key to address detoxifying the body on a daily basis. Detoxing allows the body to get rid of the toxins that are stored in our fat, tissues and fascia as well as in our organs! Don’t worry, detox is not about depriving yourself or going on a cleanse. This program walks you through how to change your lifestyle so that you can live Candida- and pain-free.
A Different Approach to Healing
You may be experiencing symptoms of Candida, but have never looked beyond Western medicine to Integrative/Functional Medicine, which gets to the root cause of health issues instead of putting a Band-Aid approach on the problem, which is what Western medicine does. This may sound overwhelming and trust me, I know because I felt overwhelmed many years ago when I embarked on this journey. Western medicine failed to address my health issues and couldn’t help me anymore, which is how I discovered this other way of healing the body.
First and foremost, this program begins with an introduction video of me (Amie) talking to you to get you started. I walk you through what supplements to take, foods to eat and foods to avoid, lifestyle shifts, health management tips, a one week meal plan that is specific to Candida patients and quality information that I’ve compiled from numerous M.D.’s over the last decade of my healing journey.
