She may help you conquer 'Candida'*

by Paula Carlson - Staff Reporter

       Are you tired all the time? Suffering from digestive problems or recurrent respiratory problems? Having difficulty remembering things?

Registered nurse and acupuncturist Colet Lahoz may be able to help.

Lahoz, a health practitioner and author based in the U.S., is coming to Surrey next week to speak about the growing incidence of fungal infections in the general population.

Due to stress, poor diets, and regular use of antibiotics, Lahoz says many people are suffering from an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans in their bodies.

Candida--like many beneficial microbes--inhabits the intestinal tract of healthy people. However, if Candida multiplies, the yeast can develop into a fungus--causing myriad health problems such as fatigue, mood swings, painful joints, poor digestion, allergies, skin problems and more. This condition is known as Candida Related Complex (CRC).

"So many people have this," said Lahoz in an interview from her Minnesota home. "But the problem is, medical establishment still does not recognize it."

Lahoz dedicates much of her time traveling throughout North America to educate people about CRC.

Through proper diet and "eastern" methods of medicine such as cleansing and acupuncture, Lahoz, who is originally from the Philippines, has seen many patients recover.

Many of their stories are featured in her book, Conquering Yeast Infections--The Non-Drug Solution for Men and Women.

"Don't wait until symptoms evolve into major disease," advises Lahoz.

For local residents who have more questions about CRC, Lahoz will speak at the Strawberry Hills Chapters on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

She will also be available at Nutrition House, located in Guildford Town Centre, on Friday, Sept. 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lahoz has also a website at
