  • I was searching for a way to explain my recently frequent yeast infections and other related conditions stumbled upon your program on the internet. I suffered from chronic mouth thrush (with creamy white lesions on my tongue and inner cheeks). My baby daughter had the same problem in her mouth and your program was the only thing that helped us! I highly recommend your book to anyone who is perceptive about their health, and for those who are tired of being told that it's all in their heads. I feel so rejuvenated and lucky to have found this system. ■■■

  • I am 31 years old and have had severe Yeast Infection for over 8 years. I have been suffering (yes! really suffering for so long) and I have indeed tried every over-the-counter and prescription that you could think of to treat this horrible disease. My wife also suffered from moderate Yeast Infection for years and we both started your Yeast Infection No More system about 4 months ago and I am so excited to report that we are both free from Yeast Infection. Both of us! For the first time ever. The symptoms are gone...completely! And the overall feeling is unbelievable. Thank you for your help... ♥♥♥

  • I have started the program this September and I must say I'm very pleased with the results. I was overweight and sick from candida and had severe swelling, and redness in the vulva area including vaginal discharge. Using your program I have lost a TON of weight. I no longer itch and scratch. The vaginal discharge had stopped and I'm feeling better than ever. I have also found through your book that some of my other health problems are from candida yeast overgrowth. My acid reflux and my skin texture had dramatically improved and I feel awesome physically. 
