A new goal for teen: overcoming health issues with food
A new fascination in addition to bento-ing is becoming health once more. Since I've posted here I've become concerned with overcoming a health issue I've struggled with for the last few years: candidias. This, as my doctor informed me, is an overgrowth of Candida yeast in my intestions due to antibiotic use and excessive consumption of sugar. Everyone has some degree of low level Candida habitation within their bodies, but mine got out of control and in order to bring things back into balance I need to avoid sugar in my diet for a time. What better ace to chronical my endeavor than my very own blog?
This is an issue I've been facing for some time and eating sugar and carb free off and on, so I'm simply going to take all the valuable research and experience I've accumulated and put it to serious use: in teal life and on this blog.
Hopefully I can offer support and incentive to others fighting Candida or are on a sugar free diet for other reasons such as Diabetes or food allergies.
Drop me a comment if you're interested in following along or are attempting a similar program for yourself.
Here's a face for you to put to the voice: a recent picture of myself and a farewell to anonymity :)
