    To understand the advantages of a yeast free diet, let's take a look at the different types types of people who may want to consider a yeast free diet as a way of achieving maximum health, vitality and weight loss.

    A yeast free diet, deals with yeast on a couple of levels. First, a yeast free diet deals with the elimination of yeast and foods created using yeast. Yeast and mold is all around us, and while a doctor can confirm allergies to yeast with an allergy test, many people experience calming of their allergic symptoms with a yeast free diet. It is possible to make foods, even bread, that is yeast free.

    Secondly, a yeast free diet deals with another type of yeast, not the type we consume, but the type of yeast that resides within our bodies. This yeast, which is different from the yeast we eat or drink, is called candida. We all have candida within our bodies, and for the most part, candida lives within us without issue. Sometimes (compromised immunity, allergies, steroids, antibiotics, ect.) candida can grow unchecked within the body. It is when candida grows out of control that there can be a wide variety of health issues that arise. Oral thrush in children, for one, vaginal yeast infections in women secondly. People have been able to reduce or cope with other conditions which include but are not limited to: insomnia, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, recurrent otitis media (ear infections), asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, ADD, memory loss, bad breath, Autism, Crohn's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Eczema, Psoriasis, and weight loss, just to name a few.

    So, to return to the original question, who can benefit from a yeast free diet? The yeast free diet relies on simple food prep, low processed, no-sugar foods. While it the yeast free diet may be restrictive based on conventional standards, the yeast free diet provides guidelines  for healthier eating that can benefit pretty much anyone. With the growing use of antibiotics and highly processed, sugar laden nature of today's foods, a yeast free diet, can provide a guidelines even for healthy people and families as a starting point for radiant  health!

    Some people may not feel well the first few days they start this diet, though most are not hungry and can eat unlimited portions of the above listed foods. Once some of the natural yeast  in the body dies off, people may note improved energy and a reduction of symptoms like intestinal upset or diarrhea.

      Yeast can be a big ugly monster.  I have friends who have had sinus surgery repeatedly, but once they started watching their yeast intake the problems cleared up and they haven't even ad to go see a doctor, let alone get the surgery.
