Yeast Syndrome
Posted by: Hilary
Date: August 23, 2000 7:26 AM

I recently read your article on the Yeast Syndrome. For a long time friends have been telling me about the syndrome, I did not believe this was my problem until I read about the symptoms. I concluded that I more than likely had the syndrome since I had a lot of the symptoms and had also taken Tetracycline for about four years. So I decided to follow the Atkin's Diet and only eat protein. On the second day of the diet I woke up feeling very sick and I was vomiting for half of the day. At this point I stopped the diet because I could just tell that the diet was the cause of me being ill. After I ate some fruit and bread and took a long nap I awoke feeling a lot better. What is this a sign of? Should have continued the diet even if I felt ill?

Yeast is not an invader from the outside. It is an opportunist which exist in the gut in every human being. When the immune system is disabled (and this takes years), it assumes a pathogenic form. A simple dietary change is not sufficient to reverse the syndrome. A super-strict diet can help suppress the problem, but the damage to the immune system is much deeper than that and will not be reversed quickly by any means. The steady reversal of the condition can be achieved with removal of sources of mercury such as fish and dental amalgams followed by removal of residual mercury by chelation and then treatment with the German SanPharma remedies. Anything less will fail. As to why you barfed up the Atkins diet meal, if you are not accustomed to a high fat, high protein diet, the sudden introduction of those items presents an unexpected stress on your digestive organs. They very well might reject the Atkins diet as too stressful. Many people are not making enough stomach acid and some produce insufficient enzymes. The Atkins diet, especially, requires both for complete digestion.

I had never heard of the Yeast Syndrome until I stumbled onto this web site tonight. Maybe it could be what my problem is. I have many, but not all, of the symptoms. I have been very frustrated in the past trying to explain to doctors how I feel.........tired, achy, nervous, irritable for no real reason. I have had several doctors suggest going to a psychiatrist. I have taken antibiotics quite a bit in the past. Once the doctor suggested eating yogurt, but I do not like yogurt. My main question in SE Texas, is there a doctor in this area that would be familiar enough with this syndrome to test and see if that could be my problem?
