Is yeast your problem?

A wider perspective, common among complementary practitioners was popularised in the book, The Yeast Connection. The author, a Dr Crook, described a condition in which the main features are fatigue, intestinal disturbance, chronic infections, allergies, skin problems, poor concentration, depression, irritability and cravings for sweets or other carbohydrates. This is called the yeast syndrome.

This yeast syndome is thought to be due to an overgrowth of yeast multiplying in the intestines and producing toxins. Because this has not been intensively researched and subjected to peer review, conventional doctors remain skeptical of the existence of this syndrome. On the other hand, there is substantial clinical and anecdotal evidence that it exists and that it appears to be connected to the rampant overuse and abuse of antibiotics.

Many patients who have been diagnosed with the condition get better when they follow the kind of programme outlined below.
