Yeast Overgrowth Syndrome

Yeast Overgrowth Syndrome

“I never got better until they treated the yeast.”  I have heard this statement many times from patients suffering from various maladies such as headaches, brain fog, depression, irritable bowel, chronic sinusitis, weight gain, and fatigue. Due to the modern day world that we live in I am seeing more and more people suffering with yeast overgrowth.  Old fashioned doctors used to say that “good health starts in the gut.”  I think that they were right.

Poor gut health can manifest itself in many ways.  Ideally we have a perfect balance in our guts with good bacteria, bad bacteria, and yeast.  It is a symbiotic relationship. We can not live without our friends the “good bacteria.” Yet the modern American lifestyle tends to promote poor gut health. The standard American diet (or SAD diet) is full of sugar, simple carbs, and processed food, which is not good for the body, but which is ideal for the overgrowth of yeast.  Yeast loves to feed off of sugar.  When you combine this with the overuse of antibiotics in our society, it makes for a toxic environment in our guts, and that is often the beginning of a slippery slope to worsening health.

Chronic sinusitis is a classic example. We go to the doctor with a stuffy nose, and the standard response is to start antibiotics.  However, according to the Mayo Clinic “fungus (yeast) is the likely cause of nearly all of these problems.”  So in the long run, if we don’t treat the yeast, the antibiotics kill the bacteria, promote more yeast overgrowth and they can actually make the problem worse.

At Tallahassee Chinese Medicine we have Yeast Overgrowth Syndrome on the radar screen, and when appropriate we treat yeast overgrowth with a comprehensive and robust anti-fungal protocol. We have been blessed with many testimonials from our patients with stories of recovery, often after suffering with symptoms of yeast overgrowth for many years.
