resides in the gut where it assists in breaking down partially digested carbohydrates. It is kept in a healthy
balance by what are referred to as the friendly bacteria of the gut (mainly Lactobacillus acidophilus,
Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium longum).
When it gets out
of balance we call it yeast infection. Its symptoms are both external and internal. The external ones are
rashes, red and itching areas (particularly in the backside and the genitals). Internally the overgrowth can
cause poor digestion, and go on to cause fatigue, and immune problems leading to chronic health

yeast infection are things like high levels of stress, use of antibiotics (these kill of large numbers of your
guts friendly bacteria and leave the yeasts free to grow unchecked).
Yeasts feed on
carbohydrates and especially sugar so if you have a history of high sugar in your diet and taking antibiotics
you probably have some degree of overgrowth.
The other cause
of it is during unprotected sex - if your partner has external symptoms and you are unprotected you will likely
be infected (at the least with a skin rash).
the external symptoms men have an easier time than women due to their anatomy... The symptoms will clear up
sooner with persistent application of treatment.
overgrowth will need the same treatment however, although if you have contracted an external infection from your
partner you may not have an internal overgrowth to the same extent.
So how do you treat it?
You can treat
and get relief from external symptoms but any external treatment must be coupled with treating the internal
imbalance and restoring your immune system to its optimum.
treatment begins with adjusting your diet to exclude high sugar drinks and foods, eliminating foods that weaken
or tax the immune system (artificial sweeteners, poor quality fats and junk food in general) and eating more
whole foods like whole grains, lots of vegetables and fruits and plenty of clean water. It also involves
lifestyle changes like taking regular exercise, learning to breathe more deeply and taking breaks in nature
regularly, and minimising stress wherever possible.
What also help
are certain supplements - these can be divided into 2 categories - those that kill the yeast or discourage its
growth and those that help the body by helping the immune system, and giving the body the right building blocks
to allow the body to perform its proper functions to maintain health.

heated, bleached, and mixed with all kinds of chemicals until nothing of their original goodness
The best and
most suitable fat for our bodies can be found in fats like flax, hemp, rapeseed and coconut oil. Take these in
supplement form. You can also buy the oil and pour it over your food or mix into a smoothie / drink. Also do NOT
heat your oils beyond a medium heat - if cooking use coconut oil as much as possible - if you need to use
another oil make sure to mix it with water so it won't burn and destroy the good fats.
Exercise is vital to full health. Go every other day
(everyday is better). Don't over do it - a walk is as good as a run. Relax and breathe deep fresh
The cost of not doing
anything can be far more (and usually is) when dealing with illness. If we have an imbalance it is usually
because of how we are - a combination of our thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, habits and daily actions. These tend
not to change without some attention. Addressing your health will not only allow you to avoid a lot of
undesirable health incidents and ongoing drama, it will also ensure you enjoy a long and healthy life. One where
