Yeast I am gonna kill you bitch!

So a friend posted on Facebook asking for Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. I goggled "time out best doctors" and this link was on the first page of the search. Mistaken time out for New York Times :) that's where each year best doctors are listed.

The Candida Diet

There is a lack thereof education on the general public’s behalf on the topic of candida overgrowth. Most people have it and don’t even realize it…there is a yeast monster growing in most of our guts that keeps our bodies plump and causes fatigue, headaches, brain fog, poor immune systems and tons of digestion problems as well.

Gluten free diets are on the rise now- and many people are cutting out carbs and sugar….but the most important thing that one should cut out when trying to detox their body is YEAST.

Read the blog, whoever wrote it did a good job... but I am not ready for an extreme makeover

Detox does exclude fruits. I cant do straight detox program. Need to ease myself into it, need to chew my food, eventually I will do a juice fast. (99% vegetables and 1% fruit)

There is high sugar content in fruits. Some say fruits have good sugar. But in the yeast perspective, any type of sugar, synthetic or natural helps to keep them alive. When I started my eczema diet, I avoided meat most, wheat and diary. But then I had bad sugar cravings. It wasn't possible for me to totally ignored my sugar cravings coz the more I did the more I wanted sugar. I was easily agitated, constantly imagining the combinations of ice creams and cakes. Opening the fridge, kitchen cabinets every 5 mins searching for" comfort food"

Before my new diet, I was never a soda person, occasionally chocolates and I can skip desserts enitrely. Since I came to America, definitely I consumed more sugar than I did as a child and teenager. Also I arrived NYC at the ripe age where partying was my agenda. Alcohol consumption was a daily thing. Yes yeast and sugar are in a relationship!

In brewing, alcoholic fermentation is the conversion of sugar into carbon dioxide gas (CO2) and ethyl alcohol. This process is carried out by yeast cells using a range of enzymes. This is in fact a complex series of conversions that brings about the conversion of sugar to CO2 and alcohol.

Yeast is also part of fungi family, so I don't eat cheese neither mushrooms.

Anyways if you adventurous, try a Simple Yeast Test!

Might I have a problem with Candida Yeast?

You can try this simple test to find out.

First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, fill a clear glass with room temperatureBottled Water.

Work up a bit of saliva, then spit it into the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour.

If you have a potential problem, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or"cloudy" saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water.

If there are no strings and the saliva is still floating after at least one hour, you probably have Candida under control, and have nothing to worry about. Congratulations.

! The Results

What can I do if the test shows positive?

First, talk this over with your health care provider, as soon as possible.

Next, contact the person that sent you to this web page, they may have some helpful specific suggestions.

Be aware that a Candida Yeast problem can be pretty difficult to deal with, especially after it has had enough time to get established and be causing you problems.

It may not be easy, and it may take a while to impact the situation, be patient, and work on it everyday.

Your good health is at stake!

For more info read:

Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth, Candida Overgrowth (CO) symptoms are so numerous and seemingly unrelated that they can be confusing to both doctor and patient. The majority of people who have CO do not realize they have it until they become seriously ill. Why? Because candida yeast not only steals nutrients from the food that you eat, it then poisons the tissues with waste material containing over 75 known toxins. Candida albicans is linked, directly or indirectly, to the following list of conditions and symptoms. A "symptom" is an outward sign that points to a deeper problem.

Review the 80 likely symptoms listed below to see if any apply to you. Give yourself ONE POINT for each of those which you have had persistently (for a month or longer, either currently or at anytime in the past).
