“I’m just taking Freddie for a walk,” I yelled as I closed the back door desiring a bit of alone time.
Earlier in the day my tone of voice had triggered quite a vicious response. I can chat with Freddie and even call him names and he never barks back!
The day started well I thought. I’d cut my hair, trimmed my beard (always a touchy subject when it reaches a certain length), I showered, dressed in some colourful, summery clothes. Made breakfast with coffee and brought it into the bedroom. I should have twigged then really. There were no compliments on my haircut, beard trim or my choice of colourful clothes or even a thank you for breakfast. Rather “how come you didn’t trim your nostril hairs?”
The previous two weekends with seminars in Melbourne we’d had far too many carbohydrates due to being served vegan meals. Our digestive systems weren’t used to the extra load of sugars from the fresh fruits, rice and other carbs.
Grada had commented that she wondered whether she may have had a urinary tract infection. She is prone to those now. Requiring heaps of antibiotics after her horrific accident in 2006 due to spinal damage paralysing the bladder. A dip stick test didn’t reveal any white cells so that excluded a bacterial infection, but she complained about a nagging feeling in her kidneys as well as a foggy brain.
What we hadn’t thought of was the ever-lurking spores of Candida waiting patiently to be fed. The two weekends with those extra carbs converting into too many sugars for us to handle would’ve been gobbled up greedily by the yeasts (Candida is a yeast, and when it feeds on sugar it transforms into a harmful fungus that spreads throughout the body, even into our nervous system and brain).
Yes, we’re probably never going to rid ourselves of those critters even with our daily dose of Iodine and Boron. And we forget that the toxins created by candida (such as formaldehyde) can quickly damage our normally happy friendly nature to one less easily controlled to say the least.
As I’m strolling down past the dam with Freddie I notice our large black drake all alone. “Hopefully nothing has happened to his mate” I thought. They have always been together since we got them. They usually live down around the dam and sometimes waddle up into the garden feeding on snails when it rains. I quickly run down to the edge of the water scanning the perimeter. There she was way over on the other side all by herself! So even ducks need a bit of “me time” I chuckled to myself as I continued with Freddie.
When I got back to the house Grada was busy behind her laptop. “Want a cup of tea?” I asked cheerily as I offered her a cup, strategically placing bottles of Syntol and Yeast Ex on the table for her to get the hint. Both these for a month will quickly get any yeast problem under control. Then the iodine plus boron with the low carb high fat meals again should keep them at bay long term.Candida solutions
If you suffer with any of these symptoms you may also have problems with Candida:
- low blood sugars,
- premature ageing,
- finger and toenail fungus,
- mental dullness,
- brain fog,
- adrenal fatigue,
- chemical sensitivities,
- vaginal infections,
- always feeling the cold,
- burning eyes,
- puffy eyes,
- itchy skin,
- hormonal imbalances,
- joint pains,
- general feeling of illness,
- spinal problems etc.
Often these can present as allergies. As well my tone of voice can quite often trigger an old allergic response in Grada. Her father’s stern voice!
I used to take her sharp, prickly responses personal and withdraw, sometimes for days. I’d drop into a very dark place. Today a little alone time like the drake clears the air. With all the inner work on ourselves, Grada and I can figure out quickly where each of us are coming from. This emotional resilience and intelligence hasn’t occurred over night. We have been together for 40 years and we have always been 100% committed to keeping our relationship alive and our love real. We looked for answers that worked. We travelled the world together looking for ways we could communicate our feelings and thoughts better. We had to learn to love, honour and respect ourselves a lot more than we were used to, before we were able to experience really deep peace in our relationship.
Intimacy is scary. It puts people off. That’s why relationships often fizzle out after 6 to 12 months, because we fear intimacy (in-to-me-see). We don’t want our other half to see too deeply into our dark shadows. We don’t want to see them ourselves, let alone expose them to our soulmate!
Fear gets in the way of love. Whether you like it or not, all humans have two core fears:
- Fear of not being loveable
- Fear of not being good enough
Today we do our shadow work and have a good laugh at each other’s hang- ups.
We now love to share our best strategies and rapid (relationship) pain release tricks with our clients so they too can have the rewarding, fulfilling and loving relationships they dream of.
Is your relationship in trouble?
Are you always blaming others when things go wrong?
It could be as simple as Candida overtaking your nervous system (which is actually a serious condition) or as complicated as not saying what you mean to your bestie, because you are guarding your heart too much.
