Yeast: How Do I Get Rid of Extra Yeast in My Body
Yeast is alive. It has an appetite. It thrives on sugar. Yeast is natural.
If you google how to get rid of yeast in your body, there is information on how to get rid of candida. Candida is a fungus - some sort of yeast. The body needs it and uses it to digest your food and help with absorbing nutrients from your food.
It is suggested that to reduce yeast in your body, you need to reduce consumption of foods that are naturally fermented, like beer, sauerkraut and pickles.
How do you know that you have a yeast overgrowth? Are there symptoms. Do you feel a certain way? Look a certain way?
Can other people tell by looking at you that something is just not right?
I have no idea.
Pros and Cons
There are those who suggest drinking some sort of yeast infused tea, but then again, there are warnings about this, too.
There is a problem that develops when you add yeast to your diet. A problem called metabolic acidosis. The problem sounds awful and it is. Some suggest using baking soda to reduce the problem in your body. I don't know how effective that is.
There are some that advocate the use of Apple Cider Vinegar. Some that advise the mixing of vinegar, ginger and garlic together to make a tonic to drink to stop leg and foot cramps.
Well. The combination seems to be fairly successful. Some people have discovered the benefits.
As With Everything
One thing leads to another. If you self medicate with the intention of changing your body chemistry, you will be successful. Self medicating is a problem if you do not comprehend the final effects that you obtain.
Seek medical advice from your doctor. Some things that appear to be natural or beneficial may or may not be.
Yeast Feeds on Sugar
What do people naturally consume on a regular, daily basis?
Sugar is easy to obtain and is in most foods we consume. It is also easy to purchase and easier yet to add to what we cook.
