Dr. Roxanne Sukol says “all health is personal.”  I couldn’t agree more, as we all have our stories and journeys around health and well-being.  She also advocates for eating well, as true nourishment is what heals.  Again, I couldn’t agree more, as it was deep nourishment that fortified my body and allowed me to gain the upper hand with a chronic condition. 

“Your health is on your plate” is one of Dr. Sukol’s main messages.

There were three game-changers for me with my experience with CFS, and in gaining the upper hand in my positive recovery:

Mindful living, deep nutrition, and becoming a conscious consumer.  One cannot undervalue the role deep nutrition plays in one’s body entering into and staying in a place of true well-being.  My book, The Memory of Health, goes into great detail on my experience with how real food helped my body to heal from a devastating chronic condition.  It’s the smallest changes that can add up to the biggest results.

It’s also when you experience game-changers like me, such as when I had real, amazing food for a week at an eco-resort in Costa Rica.  After eating local, organic (whenever possible) food that emphasized plant food such as fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs I noticed my health improved greatly.  I felt stronger, more resilient, more grounded (it’s near the equator too, so that helped!), and just stronger overall.

The food was so good and prepared with such love that I knew I had to do this for myself when I got home, as much as possible.  Preparing food and using quality ingredients takes work and planning, and I know it isn’t always easy with time, energy, and funds.  But eating real food on a consistent basis can truly give your body the upper hand and improve gut health, which can support the brain health (neuro-inflammation is connected to CFS).

The place I stayed in Costa Rica offers their recipes for free.  You can find them here:

You can find my book here on Lulu, and it will be on Amazon – including the e-book version – by summer 2016:  Wishing you  much success on your journey to well-being…xo

So, I’ve tried just about everything it seems to get #candida under check in my body.  I’ve tried diet, supplements, you name it.  I was beginning to wonder if it was something I just couldn’t shake, due to a compromised immune system, and/or as even something I inherited (even through the womb).

I saw a display of Kevita at #WholeFoods, and, as always, decided to try it, just as a probiotic drink.  The flavor and specific drink from Kevita called Lemon Cayenne, Sparkling Probiotic Drink has no added sugar, apple cider vinegar, cayenne, lemon, and apparently the type of probiotics that kick my candida in the butt.

I have had consistent results, noticeably clearing up a stubborn infection, and it seems to help my immune system and energy levels too.    An overgrowth of candida may be tied to the immune system and may be implicated in some to many of the symptoms experienced in #CFS.

We are still in the infancy of learning about the microbiome, and the immune system, otherwise now known as the microbial interaction system.

I hope you find something that works for you, and check out my book, The Memory of Health, for much more information on tactics and products that have helped me gain the upper edge.  Thanks to #Kevita for making this fabulous product, and thanks to stores like #WholeFoods for carrying it so I could find it and try it…and improve my quality of life and well-being.  The natural foods industry has been a game-changer in improving my quality of life, health, and well-being.
