Lifestyle Choices That Trigger Candida
We already know that there are many causes for yeast overgrowth and Candida, such as built up toxins in the body, diet of refined foods, sugars and nutrient deficient white flour and processed meats. Also loss of good bacteria and genetic tendencies may trigger Candida. But there are still other factors that may aggravate yeast infections. These I call Lifestyle Choices.
Ninth Step: Lifestyle Choices
Lifestyle choices don’t usually cause Candida by themselves but they can definitely add to the mix of triggers causing yeast overgrowth. These triggers include lack of exercise, insomnia or lack of sleep, stress, bad hygiene and even unprotected or increased sexual activity.
The following lifestyle choices will help fighting against Candida:
- Exercising regularly improves digestion and helps the body
to remove toxins quickly.
- Good sleeping patterns and adequate sleep speed up
the toxic elimination process.
- Reducing stress with relaxation techniques such as
meditation and breathing exercises.
- Practicing good hygiene and using non-toxic shampoos,
soaps and washing detergents.
- Using protection when having sex, washing up afterwards
and changing bed sheets often.
I’ll be talking about these lifestyle choices in more detail in future posts.
