Do you feel like the Mary?  If so, then keep reading.  Now this is not her real name, but Mary is one of the many patients I have cared for over the last several years.  Mary used to be plagued with heartbreaking digestive issues.

Candidia-Left Unchecked, This Can Be a SERIOUS Health Problem!

One of the largely unrecognized and untreated things I have seen in my practice over the years is candida.  Yeast overgrowth from candida is a condition that is unappreciated by most conventional practitioners.  Left unchecked, it can become a serous health problem!

With the right conditions, there’s no limit to where it will spread and, when rampant, it can cause intense sugar cravings, brain fog, bloating, depression, anxiety, digestive and urinary issues, low energy or worse……chronic diseases. I have treated many people for this condition and it can manifest itself in so many ways.  If you would like me to help you, soon… Read More
