First For Women
“I lost 11 lbs the first week!”
Sitting around with friends, Georgia Noble thought to complain about how unwell she felt. But she held back, knowing her friends were tired of hearing it. So, silently she repeated her concerns to herself: Every part of my body aches and I don’t know why…
When Georgia was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, she decided to clean up her diet. She figured chemicals in processed foods were to blame, but a doctor’s test told her she actually had an overgrowth of Candida albicans in her system. That explained why she frequently suffered skin rashes and hard-to-resist sugar cravings. After doing some research, she learned that this type of gut imbalance can make losing weight nearly impossible. So Georgia turned to nutrition pro Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., for advice on cleansing her overrun system.
For starters, Georgia cut out sugary carbs like bread and pasta and reached for healthy fare like fish, salads and omelets made with spinach, broccoli and mushrooms. She made sure to consume lots of healthy coconut oil, known for its antifungal properties, as well as healing spices like ginger, garlic and turmeric.
“Suddenly, I didn’t feel like I was hungry,” recalls Georgia. She knew her simple efforts were working when she dropped 11 pounds in one week! It was eye-opening to realize that many of the health complaints she’d chalked up to aging were actually caused by reversible imbalances in her gut.
By eating this way, Georgia’s health transformed quickly. “I changed my life in 8 to 10 weeks,” she says. She even dropped four clothing sizes. “My body knew what to do.”
Today, Georgia no longer has candida overgrowth, plus she’s improved her thyroid function, liver function, eyesight and mood. She’s also gotten off her medications for blood pressure and rheumatoid arthritis. “All my organs are functioning normally again.” Best of all, Georgia learned that her body can heal itself. Grateful to feel good again, she says, “I want other women to know that weight loss at this age is not impossible!”
