Yeast means several different things. Basically, there are good yeasts and bad yeasts. And there are live yeasts and dead yeasts.

"Yeast" collectively isn't the problem. There is (dead) yeast in (some) bread for instance and there is (live) yeast in (some) yogurt. Dead yeast are not the issue with bread. Bread breaks down rapidly into simple carbohydrates which feed "bad" yeasts in the gut and body. The "pathological" yeasts are commonly candida albicans. But simple sugars, not the yeast are what feed the candida.

Additionally, there are "good" yeasts which displace and replace candida albicans in the gut, such as Saccharomyces boulardii, which are in (some) kombucha. S. boulardii kill off candida.

HOWEVER, candida binds with mercury to store it out of circulation. If one has/had mercury fillings and detoxes poorly, they are likely to have candida.

When we kill off candida, we could release the mercury back into blood circulation to redeposit in the brain, organs and gut (fetus and breasmilk also) during "die-off" and detoxing.

Gradually make candida obsolete by providing whole food nutrients to optimize liver detox naturally. Food folate is huge for the 30-50% of the population with MTHFR gene polymorphisms with methylation issues who don't detox efficiently with synthetic folic acid supplementation.

The nutrients magnesium, zinc, vit C, selenium, B12 are critical to effective and safe heavy metal detoxification processes. These are most bio-available in whole foods. http://tuberose.com/Metal_Detoxification.html

Whole food probiotics are essential to maintaining microbial balance in the gut. I believe whole food probiotics are beneficial to consume when one has candida. Unless you address the *cause* of the imbalance, the candida just returns and returns and returns...

Is there a link between chronic yeast infection and diabetes? I was recently told this by a health-care practitioner. I know for a fact that any period of (even slight) over-indulgence ie alcohol and sugar - and there it is!!

I would suspect a link. Since gut yeast affects the absorption of nutrients, it stand to reason that blood sugar problems could be created, exacerbated, or indicated by the yeast.

I believe we can excrete the toxins safely and gradually by supporting our natural detoxification pathways with whole food nutrients and rebalancing the gut microbials. Avoiding toxins and immune assaults helps to make candida obsolete naturally so it doesn't keep returning again and again and again...

~for topical relief, consider coconut oil, kefir, yogurt, ACV, baking soda, Epsom salt baths, lavender essential oil. (each separately)

These are not curative, just suppressive of the symptoms (manifestation of gut imbalance).

Add bone broths, vit A, Vit D, vit C; stop any "cleanses" currently. Increase Omega 3, decrease Omega 6 fatty acids significantly. Avoid alcohol. Decrease stress.
