If your total score for all three sections above was below 60 for a women and below 40 for a man, then you are less likely to have a problem with candida. However, if you scored higher than this then you may wish to consider lifestyle and dietary changes, was well as a detoxification and cleansing program. All of which may help you fell healthy and more energetic.
