Hi, I'm Paula!
I created this program for others who are dealing with candida overgrowth like my husband, Travis, and I.
I was fatigued, bloated, and embarrassed by skin rashes and weight gain. Travis dealt with severe joint pain, brain fog, and food sensitivities. We tried juicing, fasting, conventional doctors, and strict diets, but nothing seemed to help.
Then we started researching and putting various ideas together into a series of steps. Our candida symptoms have been gone for over 6 years now. I can wear my hair up and enjoy short-sleeved shirts without worrying about my skin. Travis can wrestle with our 5-year old and put in a full day's work in the fields without a pause.
We feel better in our 40's than we did in our 20's! Let me help you feel the same!

I got my life back
I had been ill for years, back and forth to doctors, all sorts of tests, scans and scopes. No-one could find out what was wrong with me, yet I was constantly feeling ill. I clearly remember the doctor's face when he saw me and the look of "not you again". I started feeling like they thought that I was a hypochondriac.
After years of battling extreme exhaustion, nausea, ear itching, vaginal infections (the list of my symptoms are endless), I was told I had candida. When I came across Paula’s website the tears just welled up at the thought of someone knowing and understanding what I was going through. She gets me.
Paula’s Kicking Candida Program is easy to follow and most of all it works. Not only have I overcome candida using Paula’s program, but the weight has just fallen off. When I met Paula I wore a size 14, I’m now down to a size 8.
It's difficult to put into words what Paula has done for me. She gave me my life back. I was ready to take my last breath and Paula made me take my first breath to a candida-free life. She laid the pathway and I just had to walk it.

Gave me the skills and motivation I needed
I’m blessed to be part of the Kicking Candida program. Paula has opened my mind that there are many valuable tools to guide me through healing my gut and I've learned that I need to change my lifestyle habits.
Her guidance and knowledge throughout the program really gives me skills and motivation that I need toward my candida journey.

Support like I've never seen
"I’ve struggled for a while with yeast issues to the point that I have had to be on medication every few months. Paula’s program provides support like I’ve never seen.
You wouldn’t believe what factors will affect candida, and Kicking Candida is a true wealth of information that everyone needs to see for themselves! It’s broken down in a way that won’t overwhelm you, and the pace is reasonable."

This program is perfect for you if:
food cravings are
you always feel
and embarrassing rashes
won't clear up
your tummy is
you know or suspect
you have an auto-immune
brain fog is
making it harder
your emotions fluctuate
up and down like
recurring yeast and
urinary tract infections
There are over 80 symptoms of systemic candida...
"Chronic candidiasis is a classic example of a ‘multifactoral’ condition. Effective treatment involves much more than killing the yeast with anti-fungal agents, whether synthetic or natural."
- Michael T. Murray, ND, Textbook of Natural Medicine
Our candida journey, like most people’s, started long before we realized it. We were married right after I finished high school and while Travis was finishing college. Our lives consisted of working, studying, eating boxed or fast food, and late nights.
Several years into our marriage, we noticed that Travis’s nagging back problems were getting worse. We tried new mattresses, chiropractors, and heating pads without relief.
Then suddenly, our lives were turned upside down.
Travis's dad passed away from an intense battle with cancer that took over his body in a matter of months.
We gave birth to our third baby, a beautiful little girl – stillborn 4 days before her due date. There aren’t even words. . .
And in the midst of those difficult years, Travis’s health steadily declined. His joint pain became so bad he couldn’t roll over in bed without my help. When he went down stairs in the morning, he had to sit down and scoot down each step. One day he passed out at work and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. They ran multiple tests in the ER and eventually sent him home without answers.
Years passed as we visited doctors, and specialists, but still turned up empty-handed. Eventually we grew tired of them suggesting it was ‘all in his head’. We found a naturopath and, within the first visit, learned that Travis was suffering from Lyme disease and candida overgrowth.
Hearing ‘Lyme disease’ scared us. And when our naturopath said that nearly everyone had candida, we made the quick and foolish decision to ignore it and focus solely on Lyme.
By this time we had four young boys and I’d started experiencing ‘weird’ little things: a white-coated tongue, a skin rash that was slowly but steadily spreading, weight gain, bloating. . .but in view of Travis’s health issues, they seemed minor and silly to worry about.
We tried juice cleanses, fasting, coffee enemas, acupuncture, diet and exercise. Eventually we travel across the country to an alternative health clinic for Lyme in 2008. I’ll never forget how surprised I was when more than one person thought we were there because of my health instead of Travis's. My unhealthy obsession with trying to lose weight and stop the bloating was more visible than I realized.
While at the clinic we learned Travis had several allergies; gluten being the main one. Between the clinic and going gluten-free, many of Travis’s symptoms eased. . .for a while.
Then we heard about the book Nourishing Traditions. After devouring it from cover to cover, we realized that fat wasn't evil, and eating gluten-free wasn’t a good enough answer. Further research told us that many of the foods we ate (i.e. starches and even natural sugars) were feeding a common and underestimated problem called. . .candida.
Light bulb! There was that word again.
Five years after hearing about candida the first time, we decided it needed a second look and started researching. We found that nearly all of our ‘little’, ongoing issues pointed straight back to candida.
Further research told us that candida was supposed to be a ‘simple’ fix. All we had to do was stop eating sugar and starches. So we found a severely strict candida diet and were told we needed to follow it for 30 months. IF we cheated even once, we had to start the process all over again.
Suffice it to say, even though we gave it our best shot, we failed miserably.
Our candida journey became a quest beyond diet and anti-fungals. We spent several years digging, researching, reading, and experimenting.
Over time we started putting the puzzle pieces together and implementing them. Our candida overgrowth and symptoms eased, then disappeared, and have been kept in control since.
The events in our lives change us. We become who we are because of them. Our events taught us to embrace a healthier lifestyle and created a passion to take care of the bodies God gives us.
Travis used to say, “I feel like an 80 year old man in a 20 year old body”. But now we can both say without hesitation that we feel better in our 40’s than we ever did in our 20’s.
We’d love to help you feel the same.
