My name is Nicoletta. I am a wife and mom. I have been on a journey to better health over the last 12 years, but over the last couple years, I have been challenged with a health condition called Candida overgrowth.My purpose here is to raise awareness about Candida, give encouragement, and help others obtain proper treatment.
I was most disturbed after repeated trips to the doctor, treating symptoms only. I was getting worse and knew I had to take matters into my own hands. The horrible words that echo in my mind are “You know, many women start experiencing a lot of yeast infections before they get fibromyalgia. You need to let me know if you start experiencing more joint pain”. I clung to those defeating words thinking this was the end. How was I going to work? How could I take care of my kids? This was a life sentence and I didn’t have a lot of information about it.
As a last-ditch effort, I went on a Candida diet to see if anything would change. My friend had suspected I had Candida. The doctor wasn’t supportive, but I was desperate. The progress was undeniable. I went through die-off where I got sick as the Candida was dying in my body. It was tough some days, but my symptoms diminished and went away for periods of time.
My passion for this blog is to educate as many as I can, so they won’t be misdiagnosed. I could have been taking the wrong meds, getting worse, and not having any hope. It’s worth a shot if you are having similar issues to try whatever you can. I hope to give you lots of tools as well. We don’t have to do this alone.
