Yeast Free Foods and
The Symptoms of Yeast Infections

Yeast free foods are part of the yeast infection diet which helps to lessen the symptoms of yeast infections. 

The yeast infection diet is about limiting the foods that cause yeast or Candida in particular to grow and adding in more yeast free foods to help keep "The Gremlins" away.

Chronic yeast infections can lead to a serious disorder called "Leaky Gut Syndrome" and this will result in a host of food allergies.

What is Candida?

Candida Albicans is a form of yeast that is normally found in the lower bowels, genitals, skin and mouth of your body.

"Friendly bacteria" and a healthy immune system prevent this yeast from becoming an infectious fungus inside your body.

However, when the environment in your intestinal tract no longer favors "friendly bacteria" - that is when this organism will change from the yeast form to its fungal form.

And this leads to a Condition known as Candida or a Chronic Yeast Infection.

"The Gremlins" - A Chronic Yeast Infection

A chronic yeast infection happens when Candida turn into its fungal form or "The Gremlins" as I like to call this type of pesky yeast. 

This type of yeast produces hook-shaped barbed appendages that cut into your tissue and membranes - causing pain and other harmful symptoms.

And if left untreated, a "Leaky Gut Syndrome" can develop in your intestinal tract.  This allows toxins to leave the digestive tract and feed right into your bloodstream.

This condition also allows partially digested dietary proteins to travel into your bloodstream, where they may exert a powerful assault on your immune system.

Gremlins Love Sugar!

yeast producing foods

And a lot has to do with the way these foods are prepared these days.

Even though sugar is primarily what yeast feed on......

A lot of "fermented foods" which could contain yeast and mold can increase the population of yeast in your body and symptoms of yeast infections.

The Biggest Offenders:

  • Alcoholic Beverages, especially Beer
  • Moldy Cheese
