I knew something was wrong when I drove my car through a red light at Azusa and Badillo one early Sunday morning on the way to church. I had been struggling with mild depression, lethargy, fatigue, bloating after every meal, gas (not fun for the family), ear, nose and throat problems, sinus infections, mono and mucus. The list was much longer but that’s a start. I spoke to Stephanie and she had me come into Eden for a screening. Unbeknownst to me, I had Candida and had transferred it to my husband. Having Candida on the brain didn’t help us focus either. After the two hour long consult we had our items and headed out to buy food. The yes list and no list were a little overwhelming because I do most of the meal prep and I was going to be not only going through the process by myself, I would also have to assist my husband. We literally ate avocados, salad, oatmeal, ground turkey meat over brown rice until I could figure it all out. While I was experiencing my healing crisis his seemed much worse. We ate the chocolate instant meal to help us feel better when we felt like something sweet. I found the food was simple, yet satisfying. As the program went on we began to add more things as directed on the calendar and I found I did better eating more clean food, I loved the lemon mixture (liquid days) and even though we had to bring all our food/liquid to work daily it was so worth it. Even my husband who has to walk a mile into work from where he parks didn’t mind the extra baggage. At the end of 30 days I was experiencing a lot of drainage and healing crisis, so we decided to go 60 days instead of 30. After thirty days we had to travel to Wyoming and I was worried that I would starve. Not only do they sell Distilled Water in the airport, I could buy everything I needed at the Albertson’s in Cody, WY. We even went out to eat two times. By this time the program was easy to follow, my head was clear and focused. I can’t stress how important following the calendar was for me, I needed it spelled out. There is a lot for you to eat and the journal and services will help you along your journey. Another thing that helped me were the aqua detox foot baths and body wraps. When I was feeling a little unmotivated or tired, Stephanie reminded me to just get out in the sun, take a walk, it made a big difference. I got a lot of encouragement from the entire team at Eden. All my services were done by ladies who’ve been through program so I could bounce ideas of them or ask questions if I needed help on something. I never felt like I would fail.
