Fatigue, listlessness, overweight, fungal nails, foggy brain, depression, vaginal infections. They can all be the result of something in your intestines. It can even cause skin conditions such as psoriasis. Slowly but surely, more is known about the way the intestines work. Problems with your skin? Improve the condition of your intestines! Read, for example, article 84: “Itching, Eczema and Your Intestines”.
The consequences of using antibiotics
Candida is a type of yeast that belongs in your body. But if this yeast reproduces too much, your intestinal bacteria become unbalanced and “bad” bacteria gain the upper hand. You can have symptoms such as flatulence, weight gain or even joint pain. How does Candida get the chance to grow like this? One of the causes is the use of antibiotics. They ensure that bacteria die, but the good bacteria that keep Candida under control, die as well.
Weakening of your immune system
You are prescribed antibiotics because you are ill and your own immune system can’t take care of the illness. Your immune system was already weakened. Antibiotics kill bacteria, the good ones as well as the bad ones. You quickly get better, which makes you happy. But… in the meantime, Candida is multiplying inside your body. The result is that, on the long term, your intestinal flora worsens, which further weakens your immune system. Candida gets the upper hand, with harmful consequences.
How do you know if you suffer from too much Candida?
It is always good to check your own body. If you have a Candida infection, you can have such symptoms as “runny” bowel movements. The poop isn’t solid but is mushy and clings to the pot. This poop usually smells badly. In addition, such symptoms as flatulence, fatigue and depression occur. It can also cause vaginal infections in women.
Do you crave sugars?
Something else that is noticeable is the desire for sweets. That can be because you are sad but can also be caused by Candida. It needs sugar to survive. If you have a lot of Candida bacteria, your longing for sugar increases! You start eating more and more sugar!
Do the Candida mini-test
When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you do is to spit in a glass of water. If the saliva in the water appears as white threads, it is Candida. It’s a good idea to read more about it and take measures to do something about it.
What can you do about it yourself?
You can do a lot about it. The MIR-Method is already helping you strengthen your feeling of self-worth, which means that you will continually take better care of yourself. You create more relaxation and happiness in your life, which is good for your immune system.
In addition, your immune system continually becomes stronger by doing the 9 steps. Each step cooperates with this strengthening! You have more need for good nutrition, also thanks to step 5: ‘Supplement all shortages’.
What you can do right now is look at how much sugar you eat during a day. Sugar is the food source for the Candida yeast. If you decrease the amount of sugar you eat, the yeast can’t survive and disappears from your body in large numbers. Special Candida diets have been developed for this.
Review your own lifestyle
How much sugar do you eat each day? Or should I ask: how much do you drink each day? The largest consumption of sugar turns out to come from drinking it, through sport drinks, soft drinks but also through fruit juices! We pour large amounts of sugar into our bodies unnoticed, and our intestines have to deal with it. And the Candida yeast? It’s feasting on it!
Do you still eat yoghurt? It’s one of the best ways to supplement the good bacteria after a course of antibiotics. It ensures the slow restoration of the bacteria balance in your intestines. If you are already doing the MIR-Method, it’s possible you already desire more yoghurt or quark!
And how about you? Have you already noticed improvement in your bowel movements through the MIR-Method? Do you have less desire for sugar and more for yoghurt? I’d love to hear about it from you! Tell me about it below. Thanks!
By using the “End” key on your keyboard you can go straight to the form. Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!
My wish for you is that your desire for sugar decreases and that your skin glows!
