  1. Anyone who has candida, do you notice inflammation on the side of your nose? Mine turns red and flaky and has a burning sensation. My dermatologist pointed out that it wasn't acne ( I don't really ever get pimples so it makes sense) but rather a yeast overgrowth. I also have recurring symptoms of yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. I'm going to assume that they are all connected and that I may have a candida problem. Can anyone else relate?
  2. Has anyone ever gone thru gluten binges, eating anything and everything that you're not supposed to? I seem to find myself in this cycle... I've been gluten-free for over 2 years now and for some reason, I still find myself in this rut. My addiction to chocolate has also gotten worse. We suspect that it also has to do with me being hypoglycemic but I've found myself in very intense chocolate binges as well. To the point where I find myself eating it first thing in the morning and making me feel sick to the stomach. And after I go on a chocolate binge, then I think since I've attacked my body that way, I might as well continue with eating cookies, chips, etc. This is the crossroads i'm finding myself in now... as I sit here with a massive headache, my stomach in knots and I'm sure the worst is still to come. Does anyone else suffer from this bad cycle? I can only assume that it's tied to a food addiction. Really the only way to end this it to consciously stop... but I find it uncontrollable sometimes. Like I realize it when I'm standing in front of the pantry and reaching my hand in every box.... but I still can't stop. Anyone have any suggestions on coping and ending this???
