Strength Exercises after Candida

NOTE: This blog is for my own healing, if you read and try something I do... you will be trying it at your own risk.  I do some pretty crazy things to heal, some work, some don't.  So please, check with your doctor before you do anything I do.

Going through candida has been one of the toughest things I have ever experienced.  I became so tired and weak that the muscles in my body turned to jelly, I also lost over or close to 20 pounds. 

My arms and legs look like an 80 year old womans.  I am 59 and should not have the old sagging skin I have.  I really think it is time to do something about it!!!

Now that my candida is under control, plus,...I am feeling like a human being again.   I have decided to start doing some strength exercises.

I bought myself an exercise ball, 3 pound weights and a stretchy thingy.  That stretchy thingy really works the muscles in my arms and shoulders.   I stand on the center of it and pull the straps up with my hands.....Whew!!!  It sure gives me a great workout. 

I do my back strengthening exercises on the ball.   I lay across the ball, lift one arm and the oposite leg and hold it for about 20 seconds.   You can also do situps on the ball, but.. It seems I have no coordination and tip it.   I am getting much better at it though.

If you decide to start exercising, don't push to hard or to fast.  You will hurt so bad the next day you might never want to do it again.......THIS IS THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE TALKING....

So.....hopefully.... I get my muscles into shape.  Wish me luck!


  1. I totally feel you on this. I've always been a very active person and lately I haven't been able to do anything. It's been extremely frustrating.

  2. don't get discouraged! Keep up the good work.

  3. I remember those tired and weak days! My weight fluctuated at the time. I got so sick of it, I had to force myself to do yoga. It helped though.

  8. I'm visiting from the To the Top Tuesday blog hop and am happy to be a new follower. I first learned about Candida from my naturopath, who warned me of the dangers of using anitbiotics (among other things) when it isn't necessary. Since meeting my naturopath in 2005, I have tried to eat mostly organic and have changed my eating habits tremendously. I look forward to following your journey. Have a great day!
