In this video, I want to talk to you about the “eating yeast causes yeast myth.” Does consuming yeast cause yeast infections? The answer is no. Many have said this in the past, but it’s purely a myth.

There are good forms of yeast and bad forms of yeast. To destroy the bad yeast, you need to consume more good yeast. Kefir is the best source of yeast for helping with yeast infections. You can find kefir the health foods store. Make sure you get organic, whole-milk kefir without added flavors.

Keep in mind that there are over 400 different types of microbes in the body. You have friendly bacteria, yeast, and fungus. These help protect you against unfriendly microbes. I like using a liquid probiotic, which is live bacteria you can consume to help improve your gut flora. You can also get friendly microbes from fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, apple cider vinegar, and yogurt.

There are one quadrillion (1000 trillion) microbes in the body and only 100 trillion cells in the body. So these microbes actually outnumber human cells in the body.

Microbes are not all bad—they are essential to the body’s natural functioning. This includes yeast.
