Factors That Encourage Yeast Overgrowth

Yeast overgrowth can be triggered by a number of things. These include a high-sugar, high trans-fat, low-fiber diet, impaired immunity, use of drugs like antibiotics, birth control pills, estrogen, and steroids like prednisone, and psychological stress.

Frequent use of antibiotics disrupts the normal balance between healthy bugs in the gut (lactobacillus, bifidobacter, E. coli) and other potentially dangerous bugs, including yeasts, bacteria and occasionally parasites. These bad bugs are usually present in small numbers in the digestive system. But when the good bugs are killed by antibiotics or not fed with adequate fiber or the bad guys are fueled with too much sugar, or the gut's delicate ecosystem is damaged by too much stress, then yeasts and other noxious agents take over.

For many individuals it is the load of toxic heavy metals (mercury, lead etc) in the gut that encourages yeast overgrowth.  Get a toxic metal evaluation – at least 2/3 of individuals have serious heavy metal toxicity.

Dietary Recommendations:

Supplement Considerations

Oregano -- Oil of oregano has many antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Garlic -- Fresh, crushed garlic is a potent antimicrobial and immune booster.
Grapefruit seed extract -- The phytochemicals in citrus seeds have been found to have potent antimicrobial properties.
Berberine -- This potent yellow plant extract comes from goldenseal and barberry
Tannins -- These are the astringent compounds found in tea and the bark of trees.
Undecylenate -- This chemical compound is a potent antifungal.
Isatis tinctoria -- This Chinese herb can be a useful adjunct to treating intestinal imbalances.
Caprylic acid -- This is another useful compound for treating yeast.

Probiotics – Take at least 10 to 20 billion live organisms a day of lactobacillus and bifidobacter species.   A special "yeast against yeast" probiotic called saccharomyces boulardii (Florestor) can be very safe and effective in controlling yeast and often by itself – but don’t take any of the above supplements with it.

Charcoal and Fiber - You should also consider taking two to three activated charcoal capsules every four to six hours during the day or a soluble fiber supplement that contains guar gum, alginates, psyllium seed, or pectin to bind to yeast toxins and facilitate their natural release.

Symptoms of Yeast overgrowth

Although symptoms of yeast overgrowth are similar to those of many other conditions, you may have a yeast problem if you have these problems:

General Symptoms

Please Note:    The overgrowth of yeast in the intestinal track will often lead to an increase of intestinal permeability which in turn leads to (among other things) food allergies or sensitivities.  Many symptoms of Candidiasis are very similar to symptoms of food sensitivities.   You may need to consider the very good possibility of a food sensitivity problem if the yeast problem is a chronic one.  Check with your health care professional to determine the differences and appropriate therapeutic solutions
