We all struggle with worries about relationships and other life situations. Simply communicating with other women who share your experience will give you comfort in knowing you’re not alone. Being honest about these and seeking help to handle them in healthy ways play a huge part in relieving symptoms and bringing you back to health.


All of us need our “alone time,” but it’s become very difficult to find quiet time for ourselves in our busy lives. This reflective time to let go of stress is especially important when you have a chronic condition like yeast overgrowth, so it’s an important part of our treatment plan.

Here are a few ideas to squeeze those stress relievers into your daily life:

  • Take a 15-minute early morning walk all by yourself. Smell the flowers. Listen to the birds. You’ll not only de-stress, but you’ll be getting a head start on your all-important exercise regimen.
  • Get up 15 minutes earlier than the rest of your family and spend a few minutes in meditation, read an inspiring poem or sip a cup of herbal tea. The key is to do only one thing and nothing else.
  • Take a midday break. You can even make it part of your lunch hour. Do some deep breathing exercises, close your eyes for five minutes or have a light chat with a friend, which is in itself a great stress reliever!
  • Adopt an attitude of gratitude. Before you sleep each night, think of five things for which you are grateful. It might be something as simple as the smile on the face of a child or a small gift you were given or something big, like your health or the abundance that let’s you put a roof over your head. This exercise goes a long way toward banishing tossing and turning in the middle of the night.

Start by checking out our discussion board, our online support group. This is a great place to share your frustrations and struggles, your successes and hopes, and to learn form the experiences of other women.
