People with yeast overgrowth, or dysbiosis, often have weight problems, yet their health problems may be so severe that weight is the least of their worries. Others have few, if any symptoms of yeast overgrowth, but find they are unable to lose weight on conventional diets. The Yeast-Fighting Program can be a valuable tool for both types of problem weight.


Here’s a summary of how yeast overgrowth can cause intractable weight gain and make it nearly impossible to lose weight:

  1. We set up an infection/antibiotic/re-infection cycle that sometimes begins at birth or in early infancy when “infections” are treated with antibiotics. Good as well as bad bacteria are killed upsetting the natural balance or organisms in the colon and contributing to yeast overgrowth.
  2. This sets up a vicious cycle when you take more antibiotics, use birth control pills, and are exposed to toxic chemicals in our environment and in our food that can all encourage more yeast and yeast byproducts. You can also become allergic or sensitive to these toxins.
  3. Leaky gut syndrome dumps toxic yeast byproducts into your blood stream, setting up a string of events such as thyroid hormone imbalance; excessive cortisol production by the adrenal glands; and autoimmune disease.

Our Yeast Fighting Program can help you get back on track and drop the unwanted weight with a combination of the right diet and natural supplements, perhaps even prescription anti-fungal medications.
