Candida Albicans Help

Category: Food & Your Health
Posted: 2010-05-12 16:17

Decades ago I suffered from a severe imbalance of candida albicans. I lived with food cravings and mood swings, phantom aches, and too often a sore throat. In the 1980's, no one had heard about candida albicans and the book The Yeast Connection was finally out in print.

I was fortunate to find a nutrutionist who was begining to study candida albicans with a professor at McGill University in Montreal (Canada). I became part of their early trials as they evaluated their hypotheses.

Food played a major part in getting healthy. Six months of a very strict elimination diet was not easy but my efforts paid off.

Today I found a website that excellently describes the food side and other considerations.

It is my delight to share it with you!

The secret to perfect summer legs

There certainly has been much buzz in recent years regarding healthy alternatives for body care. You have found a lot on the subject here as well.

Some of the details and data can be confusing and, ultimately, mean nothing to the average person. You know I am the biggest fan of organic castor oil, now there is one more reason for you to love it too! A therapeutic grade of organic castor oil has a nice dose of linoleic acid! Want to know the upside?

I've scooped you a simple explanation, without any techno-babble, so you can be on your way to having perfect summer legs, from the OutsideIN!

If you just want your gator-dry legs to be soft and silky-smooth then look no farther than your kitchen!

The answer lies in that bottle of safflower oil sitting on the shelf. This polyunsaturated oil, beloved by cardiologists for being good for your heart, is just as good for your skin, but from the outside in.

This oil is in fact a super moisturizer. "That's because it's very high in linoleic acid, a fatty acid that skin normally makes to keep its moisture level up and barrier function intact," says New York City dermatologist Amy Wechsler, MD, RealAge's skin expert. Since our body's linoleic acid production gets sluggish as we age, it helps to replace it from the outside.

"In theory, you could use olive oil too, which is also high in linoleic acid, but you'd smell like a salad!"

Here's a tip: just pour some safflower oil into a pretty little squeeze bottle and add it to your toiletries. No one will guess you pinched it from your kitchen cabinet.
