Yeast is a harmful organism that can affect energy level, clarity of thought and intestinal health. When there is yeast overgrowth in the body, toxins can enter the bloodstream and make their way to the brain where they can cause symptoms ranging from ‘spaciness’, foggy thinking and drunken behaviour. Yeast overgrowth is often triggered by antibiotic use. Yeast overgrowth creates gut inflammation and decreases gut function. To diagnose yeast overgrowth, your functional (or integrative health practitioner) may order a stools test.
Remove sugars. Sugars feed yeast, contributing to yeast overgrowth. Reduce the amount of cookies, muffins and other sugar-rich treats. Sugar in fruit, especially dried fruit and fruit juice can also be a problem.
Remove yeast-containing foods. Bread, grapes, plums, aged meats and cheeses and vinegars can feed yeast and should be removed.
Add probiotic-rich foods.
For people with yeast overgrowth, and also phenol intolerance, things can be come a bit trickier. For some people treating the yeast overgrowth will help reduce (or even alleviate) the phenol intolerance, for others prioritising a reduced phenol diet (amines and salicylates) will be best.
