Emotional Root Cause of Candida: Victimhood & Repressed Emotions - Elicia Miller

Emotional Root Cause of Candida: Victimhood & Repressed Emotions

Root Emotional Cause Candida: victimhood

If you have suffered from a systemic yeast overgrowth, know that while diet and supplements can help treat symptoms, they do not heal you. Emotional healing is necessary and will help the physical treatments be more effective and lasting.

Emotionally, Candida is associated with feeling victimized and includes: helplessness, hopelessness, fear of responsibility, too much responsibility, overwhelming burden, suppressed rage, lack of confidence and betrayal. Often there are underlying and unconscious beliefs, such as: I am not good enough; no matter how hard I try I can’t get what I want; I’ve tried everything and nothing works; I can’t heal completely; I am not lovable, etc.

As Louise Hay says, people with Candida feel very scattered and have repressed anger that is expressed with frustration. They are demanding and untrusting in relationships and are not able to own their own power.

Candida is an emotional condition causing people to act out and feel frustrated from unresolved pain from the past. You can grow stronger with your personal power through Core Emotional Healing. Your emotional empowerment begins with your commitment to the diet and taking care of your emotional needs, instead of numbing how you feel and using sugar to feel better, which feeds Candida and your repression.

If you remain powerless, you will look only to the doctor, naturopath, supplements, detox center, water fast and restricted diet to heal you. While these all can be helpful on a physical level, until you get to the mental and emotional root causes, you will not heal completely.

The first step towards true healing is knowing you were once a victim to emotional abandonment and/or abuse and your wounded inner child needs you. The emotional root cause of Candida is — victimhood, which mean you are still stuck in your victimhood and childhood pain. Candida has protected you from repressed emotions such as fear, guilt, shame and anger. Now it is time to work through them!

Healing Candida is a journey of self-awareness and empowerment, setting boundaries, feeling and releasing repressed emotions and doing what you love without holding back or selling yourself short. Empowerment also is about learning to trust yourself and trust you will find the next truly effective step in your process. A great first step to empowerment is to stop complaining and blaming.

Through my own 100 percent dedicated and intensive 15-year journey working with many types of healers, I’ve learned the core thought and emotional patterns that are as much a part of Candida as the yeast itself.

Candida is a gift. The root of Candida isn’t what you are eating; Candida is there because of what you aren’t feeling. It is there to show you what you need to take care of your emotional needs. It will stick around if you look outside of yourself for the answer and comfort.

I have MS and am about to start the Ann Boroch diet. The hardest part is not the change in diet but being asked to like myself. This is difficult for me because I don’t think great things about me.My husband and children love me and I them but I am uncomfortable with affection.

This is an EXCELLENT article 🙂 Thank you for your profound insight! Healing candida can be a daunting task given the amount of diets, supplements and herbs that are recommended… and it can be especially daunting for someone who is a habitual victim! Thank you for simplifying the work for me, it is truly a gift to be given the awareness that through personal empowerment, candida will find it’s way into balance. I have struggled with candida for over 20 years and can attest that in times that I was feeling at ease with my lifestyle, candida was not an issue.

    Hi Ana! Thank you for sharing and connecting with the message. Personal empowerment is a natural result of the emotional work, when you bring love and compassion into your past experiences and process out your anger, sadness and even rage, it shifts the belief of “not feeling good enough” or “I’m not lovable” or even the shame of feeling “something is wrong with me”. Once you feel empowered in your emotions and energy than candida comes back into balance. Love & Hugs, Elicia

Hi- interesting article and this makes sense. i am a week into my candida diet now. My issue is that I am losing weight and can’t afford to. It is making me not want to stay on the diet even though I need to. I am naturally very thin
But really hate when I lose too much weight. It causes me more anxiety and worry. Do you have any tips for keeping weight on. My main symptom associated with the inability to keep weight on is poor appetite. Thanks!

    Hi Julie, what helps the most is to feel nourished, and not deprived, by your food. Make sure to eat healthy fat and frequent meals.

Thank you so much for sharing these key elements in healing Candida. I’ve seen websites on herbal cleanses but never received any guidance towards healing the emotional issues. I was diagnosed with bipolar when I was 17, and given medication to stay on but have recently weaned myself off of them (safely) and all of the abuse that I’ve endured as a child has risen. They were all suppressed for years. The anger and resentment towards doctors, family, and the people who have victimized me has also risen. It’s been a few months of pain with Candida, I’ve done a cleanse and it’s helped a little but now I see from my emotional state what needs to be addressed. I need to forgive these pains in my past in order to feel free.

    Elicia - March 2, 2018 Reply

    Hi Carla, thank you for writing. In oder to fully heal you must FEEL the pain – grief and anger – from when you were hurt (abandoned, shamed, abused in any way, made wrong, etc) in your past. If you jump to forgiveness you bipass the emotion and don’t heal. Forgiveness is a natural result of emotional healing. It’s hard to impossible to do the emotional work on your own because so much is in your unconscious and hidden to protect you from the pain when it was happening so you need a professional to help you access and process it.
