Taming the Yeast Beast
What if most, if not all, your health problems stemmed from one single issue? What if you likely got those problems from your parents and passed them on even more magnified to you own children? What if you could solve these problems simply? Sound too good to be true?
It’s the most underdiagnosed problem in the world, yet is at the root of most ailments.
Internal yeast, or Candida Albicans, is part of our body’s’ ‘zoo’. We need a certain level of it in order to be healthy. Yeast is responsible for eating our bodies away when we die. But when we have an overgrowth in our bodies, it can literally eat us alive.
HOW IS YEAST MANAGED BIOLOGICALLY?
While the liver is responsible for yeast management and it first colonizes in the gut, yeast can overgrow in every part of our body. Yeast lives in the mucus membranes and biofilm of your body, and mucus membranes and biofilm are everywhere, not just in your ear, nose and throat. Even your bones and joints have a slippery mucus to keep them moving as well as your heart, brain and reproductive system. It is also a type of microscopic parasite that is strong, invasive and usually attaches itself to the intestinal wall.
In the yeast state (a healthy state) candida is a non-invasive, sugar fermenting organism. But when it becomes fungal or mycelial – known as Candidiasis – it can quickly overgrow and produces rhizoids that have long, stringy, finger like root structures that burrow into the intestinal wall, leaving microscopic holes and allowing toxins, undigested food particles and bacteria and yeast to enter the bloodstream. The broken down barrier also results in compromising digestion, vitamin and mineral assimilation, hormone balance, your immune system, and oxygen saturation. The ethanol that is given off by Candida parasites is the major cause of fatigue and stamina reduction and likewise destroys enzymes that are needed for providing cells with energy. Ethanol also releases free radicals that hasten the aging process.

You will find 101 ways to balance yeast once you go looking for remedies. The five simple ways I've found to get yeast in check involve doing the following simultaneously:
1. EASILY clean up your diet, adding in PREbiotics and opening the elimination pathways
2. Take PRObiotics
3. Take a greens supplement
4. Take an herbal blend
5. Prepare for and possibly manage die off symptoms
You can do that, right?
Step 1: Diet
My approach is suitable from infant to the elderly! Most yeast balancing diets are impractical and not doable for a toddler or child. Some are so intimidating that you may feel living with the yeast is better than the extreme diet. In a nutshell, you need a whole foods, healthy diet in order to see long term results.
Off course there are more details on diet—what is helpful and what is hurtful and what you can compromise on! Check out my online and in person courses for the details on the straightforward, kid friendly approach to diet!
Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that probiotics can use to multiply their growth and fuel activity, akin to taking 2-3 times your probiotic dosage. The top 5 prebiotics are (not an exhaustive list):
3. Whole Grains, including oatmeal
5. Soaked almonds.
Prebiotics are one of the best kept secret around! Find out the skinny on prebiotics online or in person.
Step 2: Probiotics
As newborns, our large intestines are colonized by beneficial bacteria, acquired from our mothers as we pass through the birth canal. They manufacture B vitamins, aid in the digestion and absorption of food, and provide a barrier on the mucosal lining of tissues, preventing abnormal bacteria and yeast from entering the system. Over time, we are all exposed to triggers that make the number of beneficial bacteria reduce and yeast cells to grow.
So, increase the number of good bacteria! When probiotics are used, they compete with yeast and other bacteria for attachment points along the digestive tract. The probiotics (‘good bacteria’) crowd out the yeast and other fungus (‘bad’ bacteria) and balance can be restored. As you can see, ingesting high quality, live probiotics daily is a must.
If an infant or toddler is balancing yeast should they also take a probiotic? Yes!
Not all probiotics are created equal! In fact, to effectively treat yeast it’s pretty important to know what your looking for. There are specific probiotic strains and considerations in order to get the most out of your probiotics, also making them more effective for infants and toddlers. Find out how to choose the right probiotic for your situation online or in person.
Step 3: Greens
Mold, fungi and yeast attach on to the greens molecules and help to sweep them out of the body efficiently, thereby reducing die off symptoms.
Which greens are the best? How should you take them? Find out more through my course.
Step 4: Herbs
The four herbs that are most effective in balancing yeast are
· pau d’arco
· olive leaf
To ensure quality, I recommend encapsulating or tincturing at home, but they can also be purchased commercially.
There are a few brands I highly recommend and trust, and would love to tell you why in my course.

From infants to adults, this simple, affordable and easy to implement regimen is ready to be delivered to you. Only 2 weeks to change your health and your life for good? No. Brainer. It’s right within reach. Find out online or in person.
Step 4: Prepare for and Possibly Manage Die Off Symptoms
When large numbers of yeast cells and parasites die in a short period of time, quick detoxification can be difficult if you are unprepared. As a result, yeast toxins enter circulation and can cause die off symptoms, also known as the Herxheimer Reaction, almost anywhere in the body.
Die Off Symptoms are Unpredictable
In some, preexisting symptoms are exacerbated; in others, new symptoms appear; but for those who elimination pathways are clear and open, there are no die off symptoms at all. When yeast dies and does not get eliminated quickly enough, it ferments and releases chemicals such as formaldehyde that can produce vomiting, diarrhea, greasy hair, stomach upset, gas, burping, vertigo, fatigue, brain fog, low grade fever, headache, sore throat, body itch, muscle and/or joint soreness or pain, feeling as if coming down with a flu .
Sounds fun, no? But you can completely avoid die off symptoms if you are prepared! From dietary tips, herbs, specific probiotic strains to simple lifestyle changes, let me show you just how easy it is to avoid the Herxheimer Reaction!
GUT REPAIR When you have yeast overgrowth, your gut can really take a beating as the ‘bad bacteria’ can eat away at your organs and create not only indigestion and ulcers, but also Leaky Gut and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, among other conditions. As horrible as these conditions are, you’d be surprised how easy they are to fix once your yeast in check.
