I feel like it’s time for a candor talk about yeast infections. I have many clients coming to me with symptoms indicating a much bigger problem. But when it comes to yeast infections, I MOSTLY have clients just doing a few things without knowing, that is making their lives miserable in the form of an itchy, scratchy, sore and sometimes smelly – yeast infection.
First of all – the basics: A vaginal yeast infection is an imbalance in the bacterial flora of the vagina, and more specifically it’s an over growth of Candida Albicans. Now one can have an overgrowth of this in other places in their body also – most commonly their intestines. In babies – an overgrowth of Candida is indicated with a white tongue and referred to as Thrush. But I don’t want to get hung up on a bunch of info here.

Cavities, Gum Disease & Oral Infections: When was the last time you went to the dentist? Enough said.

We find ourselves having moved from a mindset of gratification in the moment, to perhaps unrealistic expectations we have placed on ourselves, to a better place of lifestyle and lasting change. This is the evolution of a new year, a new beginning, and the ideal of forming healthy habits, routines and success foundations.
One of the most controllable variables in our lives and in our “Wellness,” is what we put into our mouth. We are faced with a variety of choices within our direct control, which albeit small at the time, can total a big outcome. All those seemingly small choices can be the difference in our desired success, in many of the ways we define success. How we look, how we feel, how we think, how we focus, how we achieve.
