Interview with Dr. Ricki Heller, chatting about all things candida, including what candida is, what candida does in the body, how candida affects keto, how to develop an anti-candida protocol to support your ketogenic diet, and so much more.

If you’ve been following the podcast for a while, you know that gut health is one of our most covered topics, and candida plays a big role in gut health! Candida is one of the topics I get asked about most, and I wanted to share this interview because it’s SO informative, especially because it relates to candida on keto!

Transitioning to a ketogenic diet can be difficult, but add in a candida issue? Well, let’s just say it’s not something I’d volunteer to experience. No worries, though, because Dr. Ricki Heller has you covered! Ricki has some great insight into what candida is, how it presents in the body, how it impacts a ketogenic diet, and most importantly: how to slay the candida beast!
