Treatment of Yeast Infections

The uses of antibiotics kill off some of the good bacteria in your system, allowing yeast to overgrow in the large intestine. Additionally, in women, they are found in the vagina. These bacteria provide a barrier on the mucosal lining of these various tissues, preventing abnormal bacteria and yeast from entering the system.

Yeast is in the same family as mold and fungus. Once yeast overgrows in the colon, it is like weeds in a garden. It cannot be eradicated unless it is killed. Yeast in the system causes two problems:

  • It produces toxins which depress the immune system and make it more reactive to allergy, which leads to more infections and more antibiotics, the killing of more good bacteria and a further increase in yeast levels.
  • An individual with increased levels of yeast in their system often becomes allergic to yeast, and therefore, allergic to food products which contain yeast, such as wine, beer, breads, etc. Once yeast is overgrown in the large intestine, there is an imbalance in the normal microbacterial flora of the colon so that we get less normal healthy bacteria more yeast.
