So, I am 99% sure I have Candida overgrowth. In hindsight, I am pretty sure I got it when I was pregnant with my third son and I have been self-medicating with diet to keep it under control for years ever sense. However, I really didn’t know that there was a name for what I had or that many people get it. And I didn’t realize that several other things I have been struggling with were all connected to the same thing.
This information came as a relief. I mean, eliminate a lot of annoying things with one fail swoop. Done!
“What is Candida?” you may be asking. Glad you want to know.
Candida is a fungus. It grows in your gut. It’s not all together bad unless it gets out of control and tries to take over. If it over-grows your body gets a little crazy. Basically, you probably will start having intestinal issues, you might get itchy skin from yeast overgrowth, your brain gets a little cock-eyed and overall you just feel tired. Even (MORE tired than usual for a mom).
Candida overgrowth usually starts with a hormone imbalance (uh, pregnancy anyone) or poor diet. However, it turns out, you don’t have to be eating Ho Hos and Lucky Charms for breakfast everyday to have your body decide to do its own thing. Which is why I’m writing this.
I am now the third person I know who has this. The two other friends that have it have had even more intense symptoms (one had a branch-like patterned growth under her skin of yeast).  I didn’t connect all of the dots for myself until about a week ago.  And now I realize that a lot of women have this and just don’t know it!  And, good news, it’s curable through eating the right foods.  The bad news is, you’ll have to eliminate a lot of other foods you love, even healthy ones, because it “feeds” the Candida.
But, I’m getting ahead of myself. First, let’s talk about what Candida overgrowth looks like.
According to “Mind, Body, Green

” these are ten common signs of Candida (keep in mind there are more).
Here are 10 common candida symptoms
  1. Skin and nail fungal infections (such as athlete’s foot or toenail fungus)
  2. Feeling tired and worn down or suffering from chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia
  3. Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, or diarrhea
  4. Autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ulcerative colitis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Scleroderma or Multiple sclerosis
  5. Difficulty concentrating, poor memory, lack of focus, ADD, ADHD and brain fog
  6. Skin

     issues such as eczema, psoriasis, hives, and rashes
  7. Irritability, mood swings, anxiety, or depression
  8. Vaginal infections , urinary tract infections, rectal itching or vaginal itching
  9. Severe seasonal allergies or itchy ears
  10. Strong sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings
Honestly I didn’t connect some of these. I had hives randomly when I was pregnant. My skin has been crazy itchy off and on for years (with no dry skin in sight). Depression, anxiety… I was starting to just assume that was my brain going through different life lessons. Sugar cravings? I mean, hello, I’m human, so…  Being tired? Is that one serious? I’m a parent. Aren’t you “always tired”.  All the other stuff… well, I chaulked it up to being a mother to three little boys or fighting some weird “24-hour” bug.
But, alas… they are most likely all connected.
With that, I encourage you to self-evaluate and see if you too may have many of these symptoms.  Then see a Doctor to find out if you do have Candida overgrowth. Or, if you feel certain you do, read more on the subject and start eating the right food to kill that sucker. (Whole Health Chicago
