If you browse the magazine aisle at your local supermarket, then it’s easy to see this world is caught up in trends. Fads are plastered all over social media, showcased on commercials, and broadcasted pretty much everywhere we go. But be careful, just because something may be labeled a temporary fad doesn’t mean it is. Concerning detox, it may be currently trending on Twitter, but the reality is, it’s been practiced for thousands of years.
From the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture to the Native American sweat lodges, humanity has been utilizing detox techniques to rid the body of unwanted pollutants.

Candida. Most people associate this word with annoying, vaginal yeast infections, and while that’s true, there’s so much more to this common fungus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it's estimated that approximately 46,000 cases of candida-related infections occur each year in America, but did you know candida is present in everyone—both male and female?
What is candida?
Candida is a kind of fungus or yeast that we all have living throughout our gastro-intestinal tract and in other areas of the body. Usually, candida coexists with good bacteria in the body’s system and isn’t problematic. Trouble occurs when candida outnumbers the good bacteria and sends the system into chaos. Dysbiosis, also called dysbacteriosis, is the term for a microbial imbalance or maladaptation inside the body, and in this case, having a candida overgrowth.
