Yeast–in all of its thousands of varieties–is nothing more than a one-celled fungus.Yeast is used in most breads and baked goods as a leavening agent, which means that it produces carbon dioxide bubbles that make baked goods rise. The gas that yeast produces is a product of its feeding process. Yeast consumes the sugars in the bread dough and excretes carbon dioxide, which makes the dough puff up. The yeast also produces alcohol and some other byproducts, which produce the unique flavor of yeast breads. When you put your bread in the oven, the high heat kicks the yeast into high gear, and the dough rises quickly for a few minutes before the baked good sets and the yeast dies.

Is Yeast Poison? By Dr. Sebi’s standards, it is. Though his thoughts go “unsubstantiated” in most medical journals, there are others that also believe as he does –  that excess yeast (and sugar) in the diet causes an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans, which can lead to suppression of the immune system ( the mucus membranes being compromised) and a predisposition to such disorders as depression, hyperactivity, upset stomach, premenstrual syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, multiple sclerosis and even AIDS.


Candida albicans—tiny yeast organisms like fungi and mold—may seem harmless, but yeast overgrowth (YO) plays no games and is responsible for issues that affect almost every body system. While vaginal infections are generally noticed and recognized, when yeast is prevalent on the skin or in gut and mouth flora and the symptoms are more general, it is not as easily diagnosed. Many women are unfortunately familiar with fatigue, acne, recurring sinus infections, mood swings, and a stuck scale. I know I was. But are you  blaming it on anxiety, allergies, stress, or bad genes—instead of focusing on what you have been putting in your mouth?.


The culture that we live in creates a breeding ground for yeast overgrowth. A weakened immune system due to the overuse or misuse of antibiotics, steroids, and antibacterial soap; use of birth control pill, chlorinated pools, and Jacuzzis; and a high-sugar, high-carb diet can all trigger yeast to get out of control. Ingesting yeast just adds fuel to the fire.

Are You Suffering from Yeast Overgrowth?

Look in the mirror. Stick out your tongue. If you see a white plaque, it might be yeast overgrowth.

Or, try a spit test: First thing in the morning, before drinking or eating anything, get a clear glass and fill it with 8 ounces water. Spit in it, wait about 10 minutes, and look inside. Healthy saliva floats; if you see strings or cloudy specks or your saliva sinks, something is not right.


The bottom line : If you have joint pain, acne, inflammation, or an allergy that you can’t pin point the origin – it may be that yeast is the culprit. I know that I thought that I was allergic to gluten but it turned out that using ancient grains and unleavened bread (yeast free) , relieved me of any allergic symptoms.

No, it’s not easy to find yeast free bread but it is easy to make and very worth the effort. If you knew that you could stop your joint pain and clear your skin by simply eliminating yeast from your diet, isn’t it worth a try?
