Yeast Sensitivity - Yeast (Fungal) Infection (e.g. candida)
Up to one in three people suffers from Yeast Sensitivity - recurring yeast or fungal infections including thrush or tinea. Studies show that the cause of Yeast Sensitivity is a depressed immune system - often due to another underlying food intolerance - like Gluten or Dairy.
Solving the underlying food intolerance cures the Yeast Sensitivity.
Yeast infection is extremely common. Up to one in three or 35% of people have yeast infections at any time. It is usually a strong indication that you have another food intolerance - one of the main intolerances.
Yeast (candida or other fungal) infections can appear as thrush (in babies and adults), as rashes and as tinea, jock itch and ringworm. Yeasts and other fungals are everywhere in the air we breathe and the foods we eat.
Stop Recurring Candida Infections
When you are not eating right for your body - Yeast and other fungal infections come back again and again. But with a little careful attention to the foods you eat - you can stop the recurrences and be free of them permanently. A temporary Yeast-free diet is an essential part of the healing - but it is just the first step in a TWO STEP process.
The first step of the Healing Program for serial thrush is to eat a Yeast-free Diet. After that you'll identify your main intolerance.
Yeast infection carries the widest spectrum of symptoms of any food sensitivity:
- Skin problems like rashes and ringworm
- Genital fungal infections like thrush (candida albicans)
- Lethargy (extreme tiredness and lack of energy)
- Halitosis - bad breath
- Headaches - and bad taste in the mouth
- Breathing difficulties - Coughing, asthma
- Mood swings, memory loss, Depression.
Many of these are the same as symptoms of other intolerances like Dairy, Gluten and Fructose. So be careful not to jump to conclusions. To differentiate among intolerances use the Journal Method.
We recommend the Detection Diet Journal - as used in the Healing Program.
Comments: Candida - yeast infection - is known as the disease that makes you feel "sick all over".
However - the most useful indicator that you have Yeast sensitivity is your history of yeast infections: vaginal, ear or throat infections, jock itch, tinea, ringworm or other fungal infection.

Comments: Yeast (fungal) infections flourish when your immune system is under stress. This can be caused by a course of anti-biotics, or an illness. However - one source of immune system stress that is frequently overlooked is some other underlying food intolerance.
The repeated appearances of candida, tinea or other fungal infection usually indicate a compromised immune system. Anything that weakens the immune system can trigger a yeast infection: repeated courses of antibiotics or hormonal changes. . . but read on:
Food intolerance stresses your immune system
While your body battles one or more of these intolerances - your immune defences are impaired. So you have lower resistance to all kinds of infections: bacterial, viral and fungal (yeast).
If you suffer from regular infections of any type - you probably have untreated food intolerance. The way to get well permanently is to find out your food intolerance using the Journal Method - and a good Yeast-Free Guide as in the Healing Program
The most effective way to be free of recurring Yeast infections permanently is:
- STEP ONE: Get rid of the Yeast infection:
- A prescription anti-fungal medication from your doctor - along with
- A Yeast-free diet for 2 - 3 weeks (no longer)
- STEP TWO: Find out your other underlying food intolerance (Journal Method) so you will never get candida again!
This two-pronged approach works well to rid your body of the yeast overgrowth.
The Power of a Journal to find Your Food Intolerance
A journal puts system into your exploration. It's easy. All you do is track your symptoms as you switch a few foods. We recommend the purpose-designed Detection Diet Journal in the Healing Program.
You'll also need food substitution guides so you can enjoy a wide variety of great foods. The full series of six Complete Guides (to Gluten-free, Fructose-Free etc. ) is included in the Healing Program. Find out more >
Comments: Yeasts occur - by inclusion or by accident - in a wide variety of foods. So it can be difficult to eat a truly Yeast-free diet unless you understand what to do.
The Yeast-free Complete Guide is included in the Healing Program.
Using a Yeast-Free Diet and a prescription anti-fungal from your doctor - you should be free of the yeast overgrowth within a week or two. That is STEP ONE achieved.
STEP TWO is to find out your other underlying food intolerance - the one that causes the repeat performances of candida!
Everything you need is in the Healing Program
Remember - a Yeast-free diet is always a temporary measure until your body recovers. Once the candida overgrowth is under control you can start the investigation of your other food intolerance. The trickiest thing about a yeast-free diet is knowing about 'hidden' yeast in foods and drinks. You need to 'starve' the yeast organism so it can no longer flourish in your body.
Yeast Infections and Your Immune System
The Candida yeast organism is normally kept in check by the human immune system. But sometimes, particularly when the immune system is compromised - yeasts will multiply rapidly and overwhelm our systems leading to a variety of unpleasant symptoms – collectively known as candidiasis or yeast infection.
Candida is opportunistic. That is, it jumps in and takes over when your immune defences are down - as with food intolerance like Dairy intolerance or Gluten intolerance. It can also strike following hormonal changes: as with hormone therapy, pregnancy or the contraceptive pill. Repeated courses of anti-biotics can also be a trigger.
