~ Food Has Power ~
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...
