  2. Charmaine

    I am surprised at how high my score is on this one. I figured it was somewhat of an issue. But obviously more than I realized. What is the best course for treatment?

      Hi Charmaine,

      For a full treatment it is best to work with a practitioner such as a naturopath or herbalist however there are many resources online as this is such a common problem. A few ways to begin addressing this issue is by taking a quality probiotic, reducing refined sugar, processed foods, alcohol and caffeine and eating a nutrient dense diet to support your body. Ensuring proper elimination and supporting the liver is important as well, fully addressing Candida can take time so following a healthy diet and eliminating any food allergies is important. Best of luck!

      In Warmth,
