Margaret's Story
(from Yeast Connection Success Stories)

Margaret suffered extreme fatigue, sleepiness, heart palpitations, numbness in her limbs, headaches, shortness of breath and pain down the sides of her neck. Her doctors considered many different diagnoses, including multiple sclerosis, lupus, tuberculosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and the Epstein-Barr virus.

Margaret had been an active woman with a busy social life who was very involved in her church and community. But as her condition worsened, she eventually became bedridden. Left with plenty of time to read, she discovered The Yeast Connection and began incorporating Dr. Crook's suggestions.

"I thought his book had been written about me," Margaret recalls. Over the next several years she began following a sugar-free diet, taking nutritional supplements and avoiding several foods, additives, and preservatives she discovered she was allergic to. At last report, Margaret was back to her old self, chairing two church committees, and sharing what she's learned about yeast-related health problems.
