Overview of the Candida Diet

Thursday, May 23rd, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.  FMI office

Almost everyone has Candida albicans in their gut, and a significant proportion of us may have too much of it, or a Candida overgrowth. Candida albicans only starts to cause trouble when there is some change in your body that allows it to overgrow and disturb the healthy balance of microorganisms in your gut.

If you suspect that you have an overgrowth, the first place to look is your lifestyle to find what could have caused this imbalance. Antibiotics? Oral contraceptives? A diet high in sugar and carbohydrates? Alcohol and drugs? Stress? Or all of the above? Eliminating all of these risk factors is a crucial step in tackling your Candida problem.

The occurrence of Candida overgrowth has been increasing rapidly over the last few decades. Our modern diet of processed food and sweets is partly to blame, along with the increased prevalence of obesity and diabetes, plus the much more frequent use of antibiotics.

Candida Related Complex is a debilitating condition that prevents you from waking up strong, healthy, and bursting with energy. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to fight it.

Join us as we share information about options to keep your Candida growth in balance and improve your health and well-being! Only 10 spots are available. Please e-mail ( or call FMI (208-385-7711) to reserve your space.
