A Promising Candida Course and Me Fessing Up!

I have good news for you. But first I want to thank you for being so loyal. Some fellow Candida dieters have been on this journey with me for several years which is making me very humble and happy!  

People are telling me that they appreciate the transparency with which I used to share what was working in terms of Candida treatment and also what wasn’t. This allowed me to show my raw, vulnerable side (something you might have been able to relate to since you were going through some similarly physically challenging times yourself.)

It’s time to admit that I make mistakes and that I bit off more than I can chew!

bit off more than I can chew

Today I can once again show how vulnerable I am and that some things aren’t working out.

It’s really hard for me to do that because I’ve been brought up in a way to always show a perfect front even when things aren’t going well. Status and prestige were everything.

I want to be a good role model

better health role model

I feel this past year I have fallen back into this trap. Having had such success with clearing up my Candida symptoms I felt I should behave like a great role model for you – the perfect beacon of hope. Vibrant, healthy and strong (all the while also becoming self-employed and dealing with all sorts of challenging personal relationship situations).

I surrounded myself with high achieving amazing individuals and automatically felt I had to achieve amazing things too. So I carried an inordinate amount of pressure on my shoulders and got myself into a state of overwhelm.

I wanted to create a fantastic Candida boot camp that cured everyone (no pressure there then!)

Hence I started doubting myself, thinking “who am I to aspire to cure these people, I’m not a doctor”! So I researched the internet long and wide for the “real Candida experts”, and I purchased a 6 week on-line course for $250 to see whether they were doing things differently.

Then I heard of another on-line Candida course that promised to heal all your gut issues including SIBO, heavy metal toxicity, FODMAPS and parasites. This one being even more expensive. It was such an investment, I could have actually bought a nice used car with it! I was convinced though that I had to go through this course to make sure I could help the people who approached me calling out for help with their Candida issues.

The more I know, the more I know how much I don’t know!

Candida diet knowledge

I went from thinking I was healed to thinking that maybe I wasn’t fully healed (considering that I still had to follow a clean sugar free diet to remain symptom free).

I decided to actually go through the gut healing course, because I want to get back to being able to eat anything I want and to having such a strong immune system that I don’t get ill as soon as one of my relatives has a virus (which seemed to be happening a lot last year!)

Why am I telling you this?

I don’t want you to get the wrong impression. I don’t want you to think I have all the answers and that I sit there on my pedestal eating ice cream and drinking booze enjoying the good life. It’s not like that. I make mistakes; I work very hard for my health and weight. I struggle with fears and anxieties, and I have my off days just like everyone else.

How does that relate to you?

While I’m going through the initial stages of this gut healing course I’m on, I will not be able to serve you. It is important that I learn to focus just on myself. On healing the emotional problems I have without at the back of my head thinking “Argh, I need to write an interesting blog post, what could I write about? Oh I have another thirty heart felt letters from people asking me for advice regarding their Candida problems that I need to respond to…” It’s too much. It stresses me out.

I need a few days where I can just BE. No tasks, no obligations, no distractions. Just BE.

So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do:

I will take the next 4 days and I will focus just on being

focus on just being

No Social Media, no checking emails, no work. I’ll listen to music, draw, look after myself, read self-help and chick lit books, be fully present with my partner, watch comedies and series, phone old friends, and do all those things that I always think “I have no time for”.

me relaxing on the beach this week

I went to the beach a few days ago. That’s when that photo was shot. I only went because a had friends over from Germany. It’s about time I did something just because I want to do it (without feeling rushed, or guilty!) Same applies to you!

After those 4 days, no doubt I will feel rejuvenated and in a much better position to make the upcoming Candida course amazing and to help you in any way I can.

I said I’d start the course on the 20th of July, and hand on heart I can’t make any promises at this moment if I can make that. I might just have to move it back a bit and launch the first week in August.

I hope that doesn’t throw your summer plans. I will keep you in the loop how everything is going, so hopefully you shouldn’t have to wait too long.

What I would like to do…

I would like to share tons of new recipes and interesting articles with you every week. But I just don’t have the capacity for it right now. It’s only me, and I am stretched!

I am hoping you will stick around until I’ll have some continuity back in terms of publishing useful content. If not, thank you for your support so far. You’re awesome!

The good news….

the good news

So the good news is that the course I found looks really promising to clear up even stubborn cases of Candida and gut issues. Here’s a bit about the program:

The idea is to go through a questionnaire that replaces expensive lab work. You slash the inflammation, balance blood sugar, improve hormonal health, purge pathogens, repopulate good gut flora and heal leaky gut, you’ll also learn food-based ways to train your body build HCL so that you can use your vitamin B12 and maintain a healthy nervous system, mental clarity, and positive moods. 

Includes lots of info about cellular healing, the latest anti- Candida techniques and supplements and more importantly how to teach your body to be resilient and happy all the time without having to stick to restrictive diets.

gut thrive in five review

I’ll obviously reserve my final judgement until I have gone through the whole thing (in 9 weeks’ time), because I don’t feel comfortable recommending Candida treatments to you that I haven’t tried myself.

The gut healing course only opens its doors once a year, the next time being Spring 2016. My Candida boot camp might launch a little bit later than originally anticipated, but definitely this summer!

Remember to just BE once in a while. No commitments. Just you. Be!

    Hi Sandra,

    I have visited your site on several occasions and just read your blog and was impressed that you don’t pretend to be this perfect person, eating the perfect foods and killing Candida with little effort. This is by far one of the most difficult things to over-come and I am glad to see that I am not the only one that falls off the “band wagon”. I just recently started on my Candida cleanse and have hit my 10 day mark today. No, I haven’t been exactly on target each day, but wake up each morning trying to do better than the next day. Get rest, take care of yourself so that you can take care of others. I have learned this myself by trying to help some many others and leaving myself for last…It doesn’t work. Take care!

      Keep making healthier choices and taking good care of yourself :)
