It’s common that when most of us experience skin issues that we look to creams and topical applications to help reduce the itchiness, dryness, or redness that is occurring. There are companies that make lots of money selling expensive products claiming to benefit your skin – we’ve been trained to think that there’s a next best product to lather up with and it will solve our skin issues.
But most of the time, it doesn’t work.
Do you want to know why?
Skin issues start in the gut.
First, let’s make sure we are all on the same page about what this phenomenon really is.
We’re talking about Adrenal Fatigue.
Even though it’s become a bit of a buzz word that some people don’t like to use – we all know what it is and we can all agree that it’s a problem.
A healthy microbiome is a trendy topic these days with shelves lined with probiotic supplements and probiotics such as kombucha and lacto-fermented fermented products increasingly on the shelves.
While you may have heard about the benefits to your digestion, what you may not know is that your gut microbiome influences a variety of health outcomes such as regulating mood, immune function, nutrient absorption and your blood sugar.
In recent decades, the overgrowth of a naturally occurring yeast in our bodies, Candida albicans, has been recognized in the naturopathic and holistic realm as a condition that leads to many health complications and diseases.
Despite criticism that candida overgrowth – or candidiasis – is a fad diagnosis, it continues to be attributed as contributing to many systemic and polysystemic (meaning involving more than one body system) disorders and diseases, including the development of allergies.
I’ve been meeting a lot more people lately who have either described the symptoms of this phenomenon to me, or have expressed that they’ve actually had a diagnosis for it.
My first time experiencing this type of allergy was in my late teens.
It was the first allergy that I developed.
Not very many people know about this type of allergy, but it seems to be getting more common all the time.
Okay, okay I’ll tell you what it is. It’s called the Oral Allergy Syndrome.

Refined, processed sugar has a direct and immediate action on the functioning of our immune system.
It can make illnesses worse, it can hinder the healing process and it can create and feed illness including allergies and autoimmunity.

So many of my clients continue to come back and do this challenge at least once each year – because it continues to build lasting health benefits for them.
For those who are new to the challenge, you might ask yourself: why would I go sugar-free and what does this entail? Well, truth be told, it’s more of a sugar-reduction challenge and everyone has their own goals and obstacles to overcome.
They key is that we focus on your goals:
