Yeast Sensitivities

When the body is sensitive to certain foods, there are some common symptoms to be aware of, which typically present themselves within a couple of hours. If you have symptoms on a daily basis, then start paying attention to what you regularly eat.

Yeast is a type of fungus. We use it in baked goods (bakers’ yeast) and to make some alcoholic beverages, such as beer (brewer’s yeast). There are also many other forms of yeast, these include Candida (thrush) and others that live naturally in the body.

If you have a sensitivity to yeast, your body may produce an inflammatory response to the yeast proteins present in certain foods and drinks. There are a number of food groups which contain this living fungus, such as bread. If you suspect you are reacting to yeast and are experiencing symptoms then let us help you to confirm your suspicions.
