sugar free february! (team sS is doing the candida cleanse)

maintaining a healthy balance of microorganisms within the body helps us have strong immune systems, productive digestion and clear skin. if these microorganisms are disrupted by an overgrowth of candida, it can throw everything off and can prevent you from achieving the acne free complexion that you desire. if you think that you may have candida you have a couple of options:

  1. see a naturopathic doctor who can run a test in office
  2. do a test at home by purchasing a diy kit from nutritionaltestingkits.com which you send in to have the test completed
  3. just do the diet. the most cost effective route but it takes a little will power to do a diet without knowing if you actually have a candida overgrowth. bonus* even if you don’t have candida, the diet is pretty great for your skin and body over all.

the entire skin SALVATION team has decided to do the candida diet for the month of february. kim and i have done tests and neither of us have a candida overgrowth problem however, we are excited to eliminate sugar from our diet for the month to reset and feel great.

throughout the month of february we will be blogging weekly meal plans, how we are feeling and photos of our skin. we will be posting on instagram with #sugarfreefebruary #candidacleanse and #healthybodyclearskin. follow us @skinsalvationsf. you can also find great candida safe recipes on our pinterest board.

we invite you to join us on this journey to clear(er) skin and healthier bodies. 

wishing you joy and happiness,

team sS
