Chapter Two: What is a Nutritionist & How one's Nutritionist can help cure yeast infections
TAMARA RENEE: So, Faith, have you ever seeked out any information or advice from a nutritionist before?
FAITH: No, I haven't 0:00:27.000,0:00:31.000 TAMARA RENEE: OK, and do you know what or how a nutritionist can help you?
FAITH: Not really, no. I'm pretty limited in my information.
TAMARA RENEE: So basically, you're just looking for any help and this point and hoping for some relief.
FAITH: I'm, yeah, looking for something that will work that I can actually follow through on.
TAMARA RENEE: Understandable. Well, the difference between nutritionist is we can actually look at all aspects of life. So we take into account not only the food that you eat but how you're sleeping, what exercise and activity, so kind of looking at the full spectrum of life and not, kind of, carving out and looking out one window.
TAMARA RENEE: And the difference between, like, a certified nutritionist and someone that's just doing, like, health coaching, is they can have all different types of degrees and certification.
So, for me, with a food and nutrition degree, and I've got advanced educations with C.H.E.K. Institute, on really particular lifestyle and health aid conditions.
And what I believe is that not all people digest and use food the same. So I really like to seek out as much information from my clients so that I can make it personalized and specific to you when I'm making recommendations.
TAMARA RENEE: You will find that if you've gotten from any other advice from practitioners of any sort, there'll be some common things that cross over. But it will be really important for you to divulge as much information to me about your lifestyle so that I can write up and help you with the right protocols to ensure your success.
Yeast can actually overgrow across blood barrier walls, so a lot of times it will start in lungs or the vaginal canal, but through a period of time it actually affects all of our connective tissue, which then again affects our organs long-term.
And then from there there's a lot of oncologists; there's actually five that have written books about it, how it can actually even, over time, cause the growth of tumors.
FAITH: Oh, wow.
TAMARA RENEE: So, affecting cancer. And there are also huge studies out there about how it affects, like, ADHD, ADD, you know there are so many other things.
So it is really important that you've been plagued with these conditions for a number of years, and it will take some discipline of yours in order to get it curtailed.
TAMARA RENEE: But the idea is that you'll always have to watch it more than the other girl.
FAITH: OK. Because I'm predisposed to it now?
TAMARA RENEE: Yes, yes. And what they do is they actually grow little roots. It's almost like, you know, a tree trunk has roots. You cut out the tree; if you don't get all those roots, it can grow back.
TAMARA RENEE: So, tell me back; give me a little more history about where it started. I know you said 15 years of age, a couple of rounds of antibiotics, and you found that since that time you've had reoccurring yeast infections.
TAMARA RENEE: How was your diet growing up?
FAITH: Pretty healthy, actually. We grew up; we always had a big garden. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Not a lot of red meat. And my mom baked almost everything from scratch.
So, in my mind I feel like it was pretty healthy. We didn't have a lot of chips, or, you know, anything with preservatives. She made fresh jellies and jams all the time.
TAMARA RENEE: So, Faith, I thought it was really interesting the point you just said. And I'll go back and reflect for you. You said, "My parents baked everything or prepared everything from scratch."
Fresh jellies, fresh-baked breads, and we didn't eat a lot of meat, right?
FAITH: Right.
TAMARA RENEE: So, meat does not grow Candida. However, all jellies and baked goods grow Candida, right? So, Candida is another way of saying yeast overgrowth.
So, typically when we talk about vaginal yeast, it's always called yeast. When we start covering blood barrier walls, getting to lungs or any other area of our body, we start talking about it as Candida.
Have you heard that terminology before?
FAITH: I have, yes.
TAMARA RENEE: OK, so, going back to a little bit about having the proper schooling and the life experience dealing with people, and in a culture here that's very sugar and processed food dominant, I've had plenty of experience helping people with Candida or yeast overgrowth.
I really feel that I can greatly benefit you. It will take some discipline. It will take some work from you. And I think that if we learn to communicate well, and work really well as a team, what you're willing to do and what you're not, and where I have to draw the line saying, "I still need you to do this" even though you're saying you can't.
But I'll always be really upfront of, like, the side effects, what you'll go through, how easy or hard it will be.
