Yeast overgrowth is a condition that we see in my office daily.
Most people think of this as just a “female” related issue or a problem that caused by taking antibiotics. But I see yeast overgrowth in both women and men; it’s not gender specific.
It’s actually an organism that lives in our body and is there to digest carbohydrates to make it past the digestive system.

There is a Solution to Yeast Overgrowth
For those of you who already know that you suffer form this condition and aren’t sure what to do about it, take heart, I am about to explain it to you.
The amount of sugar in today’s diet is at the heart of this problem. The excess sugar…or even the undigested sugar…turns to acid in our bodies.
It is these acids that propagate the yeast overgrowth. Now sugar isn’t the only culprit, but anything that turns to sugar or acid will also be a problem. That’s right, acid, so coffee, soda, sugar, protein, even many fruits and veggies turn to sugar in the bloodstream.
The question then comes up what to eat? I have seen many people starve themselves (which creates acid and feeds the yeast). There is a better way!
Take the phrase “going green” to a whole new perspective
Instead of consuming a diet that is full of acid causing foods, switch to an alkalizing diet. More greens and green foods, there are products such as green drinks and alkalizing drops that help too.
When you take this approach, you can modify your diet, eating alkalizing foods, along with green drinks and your symptoms will not only get better but go away. This is done by changing the acid pH to a more alkaline one.
Stress, emotions and a busy lifestyle also add to the acidity level of our body.
