Proper Food Combining
Tara Carpenter, NC.
Holistic nutritional guidance and support (and meal plans!) for healing yeast, bacterial, and viral infections with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.).
Many of you know what a fan I am of food combining; something I learnt about on B.E.D to heal a systemic yeast infection that had traveled to my blood. Now, all these years later I continue to practice this principle and one of the reasons I rarely get bloated or have stomach issues anymore.
Proper food combining happens when you eat foods compatible with each other (go well with each other). In nerdy terms of digestive chemistry, proper food combining means “what foods to eat with what”.
Different food groups (starches, protein, fruit) require different digestion times and different gastric juices to break them down. Sound complicated? It’s not! I’ve been food combining for years. So, did my kids 🙂
Vaginal Yeast Infections: A Holistic Take
Written by Tara Carpenter, NC.
Vaginal yeast infections are often the result of a type of micro-flora called Candida albicans that have grown out of control. This type of flora typically lives in harmony with other types of flora in the digestive tract; from the mouth down and out the genitals.
Problems occur when this delicate balance gets out of whack. When that happens, the Candida breed quickly and overtake the good flora living in the body; including the birth canal.
