As a 33 yr old i had a life threatening anaphylatic reaction to ... you guessed it Yeast... I thought I had to reply.
I LIVED on bread - I own a bl&&dy bakery and my husband is a baker! RIDICULOUS!
After having my face blow up, throat close over, and a hives reaction that causes so much scratching I drew blood all over my body, I was diagnosed by 2 allergy medical specialists and given an epipen. (didn't want to believe the first one!) Does this have any coorelation to the fact that I could not get rid of my thrush prior to teh reaction??? Apparently not! ETA the Yeast in a Candina infection IS NOT the same as BAKERS yeast or BREWERS Yeast found and used in cooking. This candina thrush is completely different and unrelated to each other.
I say this so that you understand - it was devestating to try and eliminate yeast! It is in EVERYTHING! Sausages, every sauce,soups, everything.
So I was in denial I googled all there was to know about yeast. Accordingly to my GP there is no such thing in the western medical journals that says the body can be "infected" by Yeast - as in a whole body Candina infection - infact this is just a natropath term. (I thought that if i "killed the infection" I could eat yeast again!! If only...)
If you are trying to get rid of some "yeast infection throughout the body" - then i'm not sure if this is possible as the body has a natural amount of yeast. But if you want to remove your "thrush" infection (vaginal, oral) then absolutely DO NOT eat Sugar - whether its in fruit, chocolate etc.
To kill thrush - doesn't mean you cant eat yeast. You naturally have yeast, but overconsumption of stimulants - such as sugar causes these natural yeast defence systems to proliferate and become thrush.
Wheat flour doesn't have yeast in it - so I'm not sure how this relates to a yeast infection?
My advice is to see a GP and then a dietician rather than a natropath, to diagonse the issue. If it is a real candiana infection then use medication to eliminate it, and then modify your diet to be a balanced diet, low in sugar.
Hope this helps. Goodluck!~
