SPRING CLEANSE

Bye bye pie!
Spring is finally here and April 1st could have not been better day to start a spring cleanse. What a beautiful week so far! Weather is finally warming up and sun is out. To celebrate the arrival of spring I'm doing a Candigone candida cleanse which I did last summer for 2 weeks, but this time I'm doing the full 30 days. I'm also combining it with vigorous hot power yoga practice to accelerate the cleansing process. My yoga studio just happens to be doing their "20 yoga classes in 30 days"- challenge so I'm seriously in! 
In general, this cleanse eliminates all sugar (including fruit with the exception of Granny Smith apples, lemons and limes), yeast, gluten, alcohol and caffeine from your diet because sugar feeds yeast. You can see the list of foods allowed and not allowed in my post from last year here. 

What I wish to accomplish with this cleanse is to gain more energy, reduce bloating, brain fog and fatigue, get my taste buds accustomed to very low sugar lifestyle and cleanse out my intestinal tract from yeast. Candida is a fungus (form of yeast) and a very small amount of it lives in your mouth and intestines. Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced (we eat way too much sugar nowadays), releases toxic byproducts into your body and causes leaky gut. This can lead to many different health problems. Read more about it here.
