Everyone thinks of sex as a fun and frivolous act, but what if sex could make you fat?? Would you still do it?????????? Just like sexually transmitted diseases that are spread through sexual contact, other bacteria, parasites, microbes, and viruses can be spread through sexual contact, which can make you fat.
Through some types of sexual contact, which I will leave to your imagination, it is very possible and probable that you can spread candida, a fungus which is the root cause of many diseases. Candida is the root cause of fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, yeast infections, inability to lose weight, thyroid problems, hormonal imbalance, cancer, autoimmune conditions, and many others.
Candida isn’t your only concern; parasites can also be spread through sexual contact. Parasites can be picked up through unwashed fruits, vegetables, or uncooked meats (think sushi). You can also get parasites if you live with animals that have parasites. You also have to be mindful of hpylori, cdiff, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and other harmful microbes that can sit inside of your digestive tract causing a host of digestive problems, mineral deficiencies, and hormonal imbalance that can make you fat with an inability to lose weight until you rid yourself of the microbe causing the problem.
Yes, all of these yeasts, microbes, and parasites can be eradicated with the proper treatment but you will need to treat both sexual partners so as not to keep re-infecting one another. A proper method of detoxification will help to get rid of yeast, parasites, and other microbes. See my list of detoxes here: http://tamarastjohn.com/detoxification You may also need herbal antibiotics to rid the body of other types of infections such as cdiff, sibo, or hpylori.
So before you go jumping into bed with someone else, it is important to know their medical history. Abstain from sex with anyone whom you may know or suspect has any of these microbes present in their body. Don’t think that this only can happen with casual sexual contact, as married couples can also infect one another.
