Candida albicans, also known as “yeast,” naturally occurs within the body. Yeast was first introduced to the medical community nearly 20 years ago and is naturally occurring in the gut. Typically, normal levels of yeast do not affect us and works with our bodies in a symbiotic fashion, but when overgrowth of yeast occurs there are a number of ailments that may result. Candida overgrowth is caused by any combination of excessive sugar intake, consumption of antibiotics, lack of fiber in the diet, hormone imbalance and stress.
Signs of yeast overgrowth include: Chronic Fatigue, Digestive Issues, Sugar Cravings, Allergies, Skin Problems, etc.
Ever since Candida albicans has been recognized as a cause of these problems many people have changed their lifestyles to inhibit the overgrowth of yeast in their bodies. There are a number of methods that you can use to inhibit and control Candida overgrowth. Most of these methods have to do with simply living a healthy lifestyle, such as:
Although it sounds easy enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle, when you look at the people around you, you will typically find that everyone is suffering from some sort of health ailment. Literally everybody has something wrong! Think about the number of people you know who have blood insulin regulation problems and are trying to regulate blood sugar, many may even be on insulin. What about young people in their 20s and 30s who are suffering from chronic fatigue? Many of these issues are often caused by an overgrowth of Candida or some other parasite in the body.
A parasite is a living organism that lives off our bodies. These organisms’ live parallel lives to yours in your body, feed off us, and drain our energy. However, there are several methods that we can use to cleanse our body and remove these parasites and control the growth of Candida.
I recommend that you have a consultation with a Naturopath that deals with body cleansing, herbs and colonics. You will need to change your way of eating and you will need to do a 21 day aggressive protocol incorporating protein drinks into the cleanse program. You can do the program at home with telephone consultation with an expert.
The supplements that help the most are:

There are thousands of hormones in the body. Some of the most commonly known hormones are estrogen, testosterone and insulin, but there are many more that you do not necessarily think about on a regular basis that effect your body in various ways.
Hormones are essentially chemicals in the body that deliver messages between certain cells in the body. However, there are times when toxins may interfere with our hormones and set them off their course knocking them off balance. When hormone imbalances occur, the body does not operate as it should. Our metabolic rate is altered and this often causes us to gain weight.
People may also develop other symptoms, such as:
Many doctors will attempt to resolve these issues by simply prescribing a thyroid hormone. However, this can cause many problems itself, such as menstrual cycle issues. This causes a new set of issues for the person. Additionally, if a person’s thyroxin levels increase too much, they may begin to lose too much weight.
There are several home remedies that can assist you with re-balancing your hormones. However, do keep in mind that if you have a thyroid issue, you should see a doctor. Make a consultation appt. with a Naturopath.
Remedies for balancing hormones naturally include:
There are some instances in which you need to consult a doctor. For instance, if you have extreme body temperature changes or cold extremities, you may need to have a hormone panel done. If you have excessive constipation, you may require a colon cleansing. Many of my clients do not realize that they have nutritional deficiencies that lead to long term problems and hormonal imbalances.
I am also available for telephone consultation. Call us to schedule a consultation or order products mentioned above: 888-667-6168
Consult with your physician before embarking on any weight loss diet program.

There are thousands of hormones in the body. Some of the most commonly known hormones are
estrogen, testosterone and insulin, but there are many more that you do not necessarily think about
on a regular basis that effect your body in various ways. Hormones are essentially chemicals in
the body that deliver messages between certain cells in the body. However, there are times when
toxins may interfere with our hormones and sets them off their course and knocks them off balance.
Before we talk about Toxins lets mention one Hormone call Insulin which causes major obesity in
our country and this is how it happens. As we begin to eat the hormone insulin is produce and these
hormones regulate our sugar if you are too many carbohydrate sugars, bread, rice, pasta, potatoes,
fruits and certain vegetables your pancreas produces more insulin which do not keep up with the
sugar intake so excess sugar is left in your body. When excess sugar is not immediately processed via insulin it turns to FAT .
My Metabolism is so slow! I eat small amounts of food but gain weight very fast; it is so depressing
says Ariel, former client to the Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat.
When our metabolic rate is altered and this can cause us to gain weight. People may also develop other symptoms, such as:
Imbalance hormones and altered metabolism leads to a toxic body.
Our pancreas and our Thyroid are part of a fat burning system that controls our toxic waste and it
is altered by imbalance hormones and storage of toxins in the body. Mother Nature did not design
your body to mop up the thousands of manmade chemicals that are poisoning you from your food
and your environment. Toxic chemicals accumulate in your organs and make your body sluggish.
Toxins affect the way your body metabolizes food and eliminates waste. The end result: those
unwanted pounds. Unless you do something about it, toxic overload will overwhelm your body as it
struggles to expel damaging chemicals, and you will eventually get fat and sick.
Many doctors will attempt to resolve these issues by simply prescribing a thyroid hormone or a
insulin resistant medication. However, this can cause many problems itself which this article will not
address at this time.
Many folks that visit the retreat for a detox then home and continue to detox on their own. One of the most asked questions from them is: How did you get the detox soup to taste so good? Here’s how….

Each year more and more people are being diagnosed with cancer. Whether it is breast
cancer, lung cancer or stomach cancer, the cause of all types of cancer can be linked to one
root cause – toxins. With cancer rates climbing each year, millions of people want to know
how they can prevent it as well as fight it and does detoxing help.
Our bodies are complex organisms, the building blocks at the base our complex bodies are the cells that make up each
part of our body, our organs, tissues and bones. The cell is the basic form of life and our bodies are
made up of trillions of them. However, when these cells are influenced negatively by our
environment and toxins in our diet, they begin to malfunction. These cells
become cancer cells. If cancer cells are allowed to grow and spread, they form tumors that
will only continue to grow until the body itself eventually shuts down and dies.
Each feature that our body displays: physical, mental and emotional is there for a reason.
Our entire body is made up of individualized cells that have specific functions in the body.
Cardiac cells make up our heart muscles, muscle cells make up our muscles and our tissues
are made up of a variety of different cell types. Each cell has a purpose and many of these
cells have the job of defending our bodies. For instance, the lymph nodes filter the blood
system for viruses, bacteria and other foreign substances. The liver is responsible for
cleansing the blood of invaders as well, particularly toxins and foreign chemicals.
Cells become ill themselves when they don’t receive enough oxygen. This lack of oxygen
could be due to a lack of nutrients or they are exposed to extreme cold or heat. They may
be exposed to radiation, which kills them and they are often exposed to toxins from the
environment. While our cells never stop working, they may not be working properly and
when this happens, the chance for cancer increases significantly.
Detox can help keep the cells functioning properly by ensuring that they receive the oxygen
and nutrients that they need to do their jobs. Detoxing is not necessarily all about losing
weight, but improving the body’s nutrition. When you provide your cells enough nutrition,
the body uses those nutrients to heal itself and flush out the toxins that are causing the
cells to malfunction. When you detox, all of this happens in your body naturally.
The goal of detoxing is to cleanse the body. One type of detox that is commonly used by
cancer patients to fight the cancer and restore their bodies is juice detoxing. The juices
of vegetables, lemons, berries, melons and grapes are highly alkaline. Through this type
of detox, the toxins are cleansed from the body at a rapid rate. Fresh juice is also healthy
because it is full of antioxidants and phytonutrients. These kill free radicals in the body that
are responsible for causing cell malfunction and cancer. In fact, a report published by the
American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund found that
cancer rates would drop by 20% if more people received at least five servings of fruits and
vegetables a day, which is possible through the juice Detox.
The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox (21 Pounds in 21 Days) uses fresh vegetable juice,
cooked vegetable soup, broth, teas, other phytonutrients that are made from Green vegetables
in dried powder and liquids Antioxidants from exotic berries to include flavonoids, saponins,
phenols, carotenoids, phytoestrogens, enzymes, sulfur containing compounds, joint health
formula, immune boosting nutrients, Probiotic and anti-aging compounds for energy and immune system.

Don’t forget so many people have stopped their cancer from growing at a rapid rate by cleaning

Remember your body believes what you tell it!
