Qualified Nutritional Therapist (CNM, INT DIP)
Let’s begin with what led me to study Nutritional therapy in the first place. CANDIDA baby, my one and only nemesis!
I cannot accurately say how many times in the past 20 years I have had thrush/Gut Dysbiosis (Gastritis) and reflux (indigestion) but I can promise you it is more times than I would like to recount.
Skip forward 20 years of modern medication/antibiotics/doctors’ visits – I still suffered. The last 3 years I have been studying Nutritional Therapy, physiology and nutrition – and the roles they play with each other. I realised one very important thing! Dysbiosis of almost any kind starts in your gut – no matter how healthy you think you are – some of us unlucky ones are just genetically predisposed to Candida Overgrowth and low stomach acid (hypochloridia).
Jump to FIRE TONICS, a Master tonic filled wonderful organic, natural ingredients:
- Raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar – The acetic acid in ACV helps for better digestion by virtue of its alkaline-based digestive properties and increasing (stimulating) hydrochloric acid production – Helping to breakdown food and preventing reflux.
- Along with ACV – The garlic, ginger and chillies are all strong anti-Microbial Agents – Lowering Ph, Making it very hard for any Pathogenic bacteria to flourish as well as controlling overgrowth of Candida.
- Cooling organic Mint – Peppermint oil calms the muscles of the stomach, aids digestion and reduces inflammation.
Once I had corrected my gut health, my thrush and reflux returned to normal. Unfortunately nothing like this existed in South Africa or at least none within my reach – SO I made my own and ACESO FIRE TONIC was born.
I hope it helps you as much as it continues to help me…
May the fire be with you
