Hi everyone

I hope the wet British summer isnt getting you all down.  I managed to get away to the sun for a few weeks and its done me the power of good.  As you know my job is stressful and I was starting to worry for my mental wellbeing.  However after a few days I started to feel a bit better.   I managed to stick to the diet 90% of the time and I took my lactase enzymes so I could enjoy some milk and a few mouthfuls of ice cream.  Interestingly on my return my acupuncturist could tell I had eaten some of the wrong foods (gluten was the main one) as my body was out of balance.  However I had a check up with my naturopath who felt that the candida levels were very low indeed.  But I am l taking Pau D’arco to be on the safe side.  I believe strongly that stress is an underlying factor for me so I wont be too disappointed if the candida makes a return in the coming weeks.   I am working hard to launch my own business as I face redundancy.  As I live on my own and a mortgage this is quite a worry but I have always dreamt of being self employed so I am treating this as a golden opportunity. I am quite excited!   I am using EFT (emotional freedom technique) and I was interested to read on the EFT site that a candida sufferer treated the candida through using EFT to tap for frustration.  That is one of the overwhelming emotions that I have experienced in recent years and the more frustrated I have become, the more the candida has taken a hold.   I am always interested in the link between the mind and the body.  For example why one stressed person will get a migraine and another gets candida.  I recommend Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life book as Louise addresses this issue.   I’d be interested to hear other people’s opinions.
