According to Lori, many of us are eating yeast-rich food which is damaging to our health. She said
Yeast makes a number of chemical compounds which the body picks up and absorbs. To most folks, they may not feel much effect. However, other people may have more of a sensitivity which shows up through vaginal yeast infections, diarrhea/constipation and headaches. And then there are the rest of us, whose bodies have a difficult time handling these compounds and toxins. We feel sick, but we can’t figure out why.
Penicillin is one of the earliest discovered and widely used antibiotic agents, derived from the Penicillium mold. Antibiotics are natural substances that are released by bacteria and fungi into their environment, as a means of inhibiting other organisms – it is chemical warfare on a microscopic scale.
Many of the chemicals that yeast (mold, fungi) produce are also made to kill bacteria. If you continue to eat a diet rich in yeast, or foods that yeast have produced, you are taking in a low level of antibacterial chemicals, or antibiotics, all the time.
Antibiotics kill bacteria. The problem is that they don’t know the difference between good bacteria and bad.
Each of us has a certain amount of good bacteria and yeast in our intestines. When we consume antibiotics, whether in the form of prescription drugs, or chemicals and toxins produced from our yeast rich diets, we are killing the good bacteria in the gut.
When this happens, a space has been provided for the yeast to grow. This creates an imbalance between the good bacteria, or flora, and the yeast. If we continue to eat our yeasty, highly refined, sugary diet, we provide just the food that the yeast needs to grow at rapid speed.
