Fungi have an extended family.  Yeasts belong to the fungus family which consists of at least 100,000 to 250,000 species.  They include yeasts, mold, mildew, rots, smuts and mushrooms.  The characteristic of fungi is the lack of chlorophyll.  Consequently, they cannot perform photosynthesis and are parasitic and saprophytic (feeding off dead organisms).

          The function of yeasts is to break down dead bodies so that organic matter can be turned into its basic elements of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon and phosphorus.  Without yeasts, we could be in serious trouble because dead bodies of animals and plants would just pile up.  We need yeasts to assist in the recycling of ecology.

          However, overgrowth of yeasts can also break down living organisms.  There are at least 20 to 30 different types of pathogenic yeasts which cause illnesses.  Candida is one member of the yeast family.  Candida albicans alone has 50 to 60 different strains which cause infections.  Consequently, it is no surprise that almost every individual in contemporary society suffers from yeast infections at one time or another, to a greater or lesser degree.

The most effective way for treating yeast infections or candidiasis is using a holistic approach including yeast-free nutrition, herbal therapy, stress management, and spiritual counseling.   For more information, visit www.drjsbest.com.  I also provide consultation via telephone or Skype.  For appointment, call (800) 715-3053 or e-mail: drj@drjsbest.com.
