Are You A Stressed Girl
Lisa Lee

Stress affects us all, but it seems that as we get older, the more stressed we become. We leave home, where we are fed, clothed and sheltered for free only to be bombarded with an endless list of burdens. These include financial burdens, difficult work environments and high paced jobs, marriage and the biggest (but most rewarding) stress-becoming a parent. No longer can we run to mom and dad and ask for a loan (ok, maybe occasionally, but this comes with a drenching of guilt).

Candida growth is usually kept under control by the immune system and the “good bugs” in the large intestine. When not controlled effectively, resulting infestation leads to a condition known as candidiasis – an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, impossible for a normal immune system to eradicate. It can produce a sufficient quantity of toxins to chronically poison the host individual.
