Change is possible for anyone
Don't worry if folks on this forum seem like zealots to you at first. Many people exploring healthy food and nutritional supplements to treat candida overgrowth were not always excitable when it came to new ways of making a healthy food tasty or a a gluten free muffin stick together. And, they were far from health fanatics when they came on board.
Relating to others
Those who might count themselves among the already 'converted' (to health enthusiasts) endured some growing pains as they changed their lifestyles and diet. Many experience a temporary alienation of friends and family in the process. It's strange but even though we're transitioning to a whole foods and natural products healing program, it seems UNnatural to many.
Here we can make the distinction between natural and normal and between normal and conditioned. It's natural for us to eat foods that are naturally produced and minimally processed. As the 'Green' Revolution that took us towards agrochemical farming norms, and as corporate food processors began supplying convenience food to our busy families, we have become conditioned to think that chemical mega-farms and packaged, processed foods are normal.
An explanation of your struggle with yeast, candida, CRC, Candidiasis etc to people in your life a requires care and thoughtfulness and, in many situations, may be best avoided. If you have to say something, a simple explanation that you have some digestive and allergy problems and need to choose your foods very carefully will likely be enough for most people.
Sharing in small bites
If you know someone very well and if you feel they will listen with authentic concern and a non judgemental mind, you might want to tell them what you've been exploring. Still it's usually best to try to give short, summarized 'sound bytes' and allow them to ask questions rather than overwhelm them with information.This is easier said than done.
Leading by healthy example
Even your dearest loved ones may have some trouble adjusting to your new interests, passions and preferences. It will no doubt challenge them to some degree practically (as they try to figure out if they should worry about you and how they can feed you with your new choices), and perhaps philosophically as well.
As we experience our own personal health revelations, it can be very tempting to want to change those around us, especially those we care about deeply. All we can really do to influence others is to quietly, confidently change in front of them and hopefully our success will provide a positive model. We can only come to realizations about our health care and diet when the time is right for us. As most of you have already realized, making changes in diet can feel intimidating.Just start where you're at and find the right pace and the right approach to suit your lifestyle and personality and health needs.
