Amy Huebner is a really great cook. She’s also a health coach spreading the word about how to make healthy choices in our diet. Her website the Candida Diaries offers great advice as well as delicious recipes. Amy makes Fire Cider right here in Massachusetts with her husband Dana. She’s a Good Girl, for sure, and I've written about her story and how she kicked candida's ass in "Beauty and the Yeast".
She has come a long way working through the debilitating illness of Candida Overgrowth Syndrome and has learned a great many things along the way to wellness. She shares her knowledge with others so that they, too, may heal. Check out her website and her amazing little cookbook and have some fun with recipes such as “Coconut Love Bombs,” “This recipe Will Get You Laid,” and “Saucy Sauce.”
The prevalence of candida overgrowth in our guts is growing and growing...In 2009, Kim Evans writes in the Huffington Post that an “estimated 90 percent of the population has a problem with candida overgrowth, although most don't know it”; in 2010, Mark Hyman asks “Is Hidden Fungus making You Ill?”; in 2013, Mind Body Green offers up a list of Ten Signs You Have Candida Overgrowth; and in 2015, for those who doubt the existence of Candida Overgrowth Syndrome, ground-breaking research and scientific evidence can clarify the grey areas.
Candida overgrowth results from poor dietary choices, high stress levels and not getting the exercise we need. Proliferating candida yeast burrows into the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, damaging it and leading to Leaky Gut - where the body absorbs chemical substances from living candida as well as toxins from dead candida. It wreaks havoc system-wide as a body fights the candida off, creating chronic illness alongside such symptoms as fatigue, muscle aches, and brain fog.
Isn't it nice to know that eating a Coconut Love Bomb can aid in a body’s war against Candida Overgrowth? Amy explains why and gives you the recipe. Go on, Good Girl, get your love bombs on ;)
