Book Summary: Candida is a type of yeast that grows in the human body. An overgrowth of candida has been found to be at the root of many health problems, from chronic fatigue and digestive disorders to skin conditions and allergies. Some health professionals are calling it a hidden epidemic. One of the main instigators of candida overgrowth is sugar, of which the average American consumes more than seventy pounds per year. In Living Candida-Free, Ricki Heller (with functional nutritionist Andrea Nakayama) offers a complete exploration of this condition and an expansive approach for anyone wishing to follow an anti-candida diet. A comprehensive guidebook for living a life free of refined sugar, it includes a three-stage program; tips on how to transition to eating the anti-candida way with ease; information on herbal supplements and treatments; a full list of substitutions; and delicious, satisfying recipes that anyone can prepare.
