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.
Most are unaware that yeast overgrowth is possible, and that it can cause so
many health problems. Here are some of the symptoms of yeast overgrowth:
- Mood Issues
- Vaginal Yeast Infections
- Jock Itch
- Rectal Itching
- Indigestion or Heartburn
- Lethargy, Fatigue
- Sinus Congestion
- Skin Rashes or Hives
