DID YOU KNOW that research published in Hypertension suggests eating a diet with a greater variety of protein sources may help adults lower their risk of developing high blood pressure? 12,200 participants were scored based on how many protein sources were consumed in eight categories. After an average of six years, more than 35% of the participants developed early-onset hypertension. Those who ate four or more protein sources a week had a 66% lower risk of developing high blood pressure compared to those who had two or fewer protein sources a week. This is one of the many reasons why we tell you to vary your protein sources as much as possible, especially on a daily basis.

Docs Shouldn't Ignore Yeast Issues Any Longer
It would be impossible to count the number of clients who have yeast overgrowth issues and receive no help from their allopathic physicians. The only time the allopathic community acknowledges candida albicans overgrowth is in elderly, critically ill, ICU patients. Could we finally be turning the corner in acknowledging how pervasive this issue is in the human population? Here's a shocking (tongue-in-cheek) conclusion from a new study in Nature: some strains of yeast in the human gut can produce toxins that could contribute to irritable bowel disease. These "high-damaging" Candida albicans yeast strains aren't usually a problem when they are kept in balance, but in the guts of those who eat too much of it and have a proclivity to yeast overgrowth, the fungi appear to proliferate, triggering inflammation. Researchers realized some yeast strains produce a potent toxin called candidalysin, which can damage immune cells, triggering further inflammation. The authors are now working on several follow-up studies to see how toxin-producing yeast inflames the colon and to figure out which patients will respond best to antifungal treatments. We could save the authors a whole bunch of time. We've worked with hundreds of clients over the years with yeast overgrowth or candida. It is the most difficult eating style to adhere to because once yeast takes hold in the gastrointestinal tract, it is very difficult to eradicate. You must be one hundred percent dedicated to the diet with no deviation. For self-help, our Candida Action Plan can give you an idea of what would be in store. Action Plans, which can be found at our website shop, are free to paid newsletter subscribers, and individually priced for free newsletter subscribers. We always recommend working directly with a knowledgable health professional, especially when starting a candida diet, because the side effects from the yeast die-off can be extreme.
