Reduce the Toxic Load

Of critical focus in the elimination and balancing of candida albicans in the intestinal tract is to reduce the toxic load to our bodies. There are some things we can do very little about but some we can. Body washes, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste (have you ever read the warnings on toothpaste-scary!), hand soap, perfumes, dyes…eek! I have a complete love affair going with dōTERRA dōTERRA means gift of the earth, and that resonates with me! I am passionate about our beautiful Earth- we are meant to be deeply connected with nature. And dōTERRA has brought us very close with these wonderful ‘gifts’ the the purest and most potent essential oils as well as body washes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, etc! The research and quality is the highest available today! They have raised the bar on certified quality. All their oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG)!  Safe to use with infants, pregnant mothers, children & seniors. One drop of their peppermint essential oil (EO) is equal to 28+ cups of tea.

Don’t be intimidated, this has been my first association with essential oils, too, basically with these oils, just open the bottle and use them. They can be taken internally (except for a very few), breathed in aromatically, or put on topically. Open the bottle and enjoy!

In full disclosure; I have become an Independent Product Consultant with dōTERRA and make a small commission when people follow my lead. Please do not let that cause you to pause, everything we buy, anywhere, has had a sales person (s) in the mix somewhere. this company chose word of mouth as their best advertisement. I would be sharing this regardless of making a dime! It’s that good!

I Am Excited and Thankful!

There is a lot of information about possible steps to take when you have an overgrowth of candida albicans in your body.  Once I figured out that my many ‘little’ issues ALL added up to systemic candida, I started looking….holy overwhelm, here….

That’s why I started this support group…I wanted others to gain from my research and experience (read: experiments on self :)).  And I don’t want to do it all, myself.  Maybe someone that loves to cook can  try out some of the recipes, or someone with young kids can tell us what has worked for their picky eaters, etc!  Even though we have our group meeting locally in Yelm, WA on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, and many of you are unable to attend… I plan to post a basic outline of each meeting here.

Well tonight is our next meeting and I am busy with preparations. Hope to see you there!  6-8 PM, Gordon’s Grange, 308 East Yelm Avenue, Yelm, WA 98597

Have a lovely Thanksgiving, everyone!

Join Us in Person

If you are anywhere near Yelm, WA please join us on the FIRST and THIRD WEDNESDAYS of each month at Gordon’s Grange.  Two-story white building right across the parking lot from Gordon’s Garden Center on Yelm Hwy (main road right through town).  You can contact me at gifts of the earth @ yahoo .com  please eliminate the spaces as the actual email address.  I’m hoping that will prevent spam emails.  I have already received a zillion spam since I opened that email.  :/

An overgrowth of candida albicans can be such a huge health issue, leading to many of the known ailments afflicting people today, yet is often misdiagnosed or in my case NEVER diagnosed; we need to work together to inform, discuss and support each other!

Best of everything to you in life!

Candida Poster Child Starts Support Group

Wow, I wonder how many are just like me?  The more I have read and learned..I realize that I have have had symptoms of yeast overgrowth (Candida albicans) since I was a little kid!

But hey, I don’t want to do it all alone…it is a complex issue with candida tendrils in almost every place in the body and in my life!  Am I ready to get rid of this opportunistic life draining pathogen?  YES!  But on an interesting note..I am seeing so many similarities to life…little tendrils getting out of control and getting into places it shouldn’t…more later…
