When we substitute gluten products with gluten free we often increase our intake of carbohydrates, which increases our production of yeast in the body. This contributes to an imbalance of microbes in the GI tract, resulting in mood swings, overall fatigue and tiredness, skin irritations and an increase in sugar cravings.
Beneficial gut microbes Lactobacillus, Enterococcus and Bifidobacteria were found to be significantly lower in fecal samples of children with celiac disease compared to controls, while unhealthy gut flora, was increased.1 This is directly related to diet and promoting the growth of the Yeast Beast.
With a high carbohydrate, yeast producing diet, supporting the body with enzyme producing foods and herbs that support raise HCL (hydrochloric acid) in the stomach is important. Some of these include:
- Sauerkraut, umeboshi plum, saccharomyces boulardii, apple cider vinegar, garlic, onions, seaweed, fresh lemon and lime in water, coconut oil, olive oil, pumpkin seeds, and ginger are beneficial.
Herbally, a tried and true method of removing unwanted organisms such as yeast is NDF Happy for children, and Microbe Slayer for adults. Both products are formulated and manufactured by Bioray. People as young as 12 months to 82 years of age have safely used these formulas. The key ingredients that fight unwanted yeast and microorganisms include:
- Artemisia annua, wormwood, clove bud, olive leaf, walnut hulls, red clover, and grapefruit seed extract.
Additional herbs in these formulas that support the ability to deal with the stress these microorganisms create are:
- Lion's Mane mushroom, American Ginseng root, Eleuthero root, Reishi mushroom,
Polygonatum root, Licorice root, Micronized Chlorella and Schizandra Berries – most of these adaptogenic herbs.
Here are some ways and reasons to incorporate NDF Happy and Microbe Slayer into your daily life and child's life with ease:
When traveling – Increase hydrochloric acid in the gut to avoid unwanted critters from making your intestines their new home. Adults: 1–2 droppers of Microbe Slayer & Children; 1-2 droppers of Happy before and after a meal.
Foggy thinking – Yeast and sugar can create foggy thinking and clove is shown in studies to improve brain cognition. Adults: 1-2 droppers of Microbe Slayer two times a day. Children 1-2 droppers of NDF Happy twice a day.
Yeast often flares up in conjunction with heavy metal detoxification, as metals keep yeast in check. Adults: 1 - 2 droppers of Microbe Slayer, two times a day. Children 1 - 2 droppers of NDF Happy, twice a day.
