    This is by far the most comprehensive book on yeast that I have read. It is very well put together and easy to follow. I highly recommend this to anyone with a yeast problem.

    Good Diagnostic and Best (and only, IMO) Therapeutic Manual for People Suffering with Chronic Yeast Overgrowth Syndrome - Getting a Normal Life Back

    This book is actually a therapeutic manual and reference book for people who suffer from yeast overgrowth, ranging from mild to extremely severe, as was my case. However, a very large segment of the population suffers from relatively mild (but very annoying)recurrent yeast growth flair ups, mostly women, but men do also, so this book has value to the general population as well.

    Yeast overgrowth problems tend to grow and progress, so a mild intermittent cases can easily become severe and chronic over time. It can be a devastating thing to endure, if the immune system starts to breaks down with respect to yeast and fungal organism. The toxins from the Candida microorganisms can foster that specific immunity breakdown. Varieties of Candida albicans seem to be the culprit, the species of yeast causing these problems. It is ubiquitous. Why it can proliferate and harm some people and not others depends on a combination of factors.

    I suffered greatly for over twenty years with this problem. It got so bad, I was getting real urinary bladder infections with blood in my urine (small amounts found on testing stick.) My prostate pain and swelling was often excruciating. Bloody Hemmorrhoids, even intestinal blood once, and chronic anal itching was really scarry and annoying. Chronic acute indigestion was so painful at certain stages of the condition that I would fast for days just for relief. This went on for over 20 years, starting with acute prostatitis after a glass of wine in my early twenties, and continuing with a variety of other symptom on into about 40 when I started reading books on yeast and started taking matters into my own hands. This book was the most important one. Doctors' testing proved inconclusive. Instinctively, for years I knew yeasted bread made me feel worse, but did not know much more.

    Doctors either couldn't figure out my symptoms. A few conjectured that I had a nervous and/or psychological condition, or they wanted to hospitalize me for a battery of expensive tests. I kept chickening out on the hospital tests, probes, etc. Didn't have the money or insurance anyway. I finally did find a doctor, an MD who put his card in the health food store bulletin board. He understood the problem and took me seriously, but did not know much about treatment.

    I read over half a dozen books on this Yeast phenomenon, but none of them was so detailed for therapuetic step-by-step self-treatment of curing as good as this book was. It took me four years to gradually get completely well again, mostly following the most restrictive of the four diets in the book, MEVY diet (Meat, Eggs, Vegetable, Yogurt) during my these four years. The last year I loosened up on the diet. I had previously been a vegetarian, so I had to adjust my attitude. I ate lots of yogurt (I liked goat milk yogurt) took massive amounts of garlic gelcaps, and occassionally used organic coffee enemas for more immediate relief, followed by nystatin enemas, as was also suggested.

    Now that I am "cured," I am cured like a former alcoholic. I am vulnerable and it can alway reoccur. I still have a "problem" but don't suffer, and don't need to be as strict with my diet. I have a life. Minor symptoms can still appear. I still have to stay away from sweets, overindulgence in carbohydrates, must avoid antibiotics, must avoid narcotics and drugs in general (which can perforate my weakened intestinal lining) This book helped immensely. It was a life-s

    It has been a long journey back to health after coming to realize I had a systemic yeast infection. Discovering that my doctor knew very little about yeast I started reading books. While all of them were hepful, and I learned important things from each one, The Yeast Syndrome is by far the most comprehensive one I read. For almost two years I have had symptoms that I knew were yeast-related. Four different doctors had no knowledge of what I was experiencing. There in black and white in The Yeast Syndrome were my symptoms. Not only were they in print, but there was a diagnosis describing my symptoms as they related to yeast! What a relief to finally find someone who knew what I was experiencing. Realizing how much sugar and junk food are consumed in our society, I believe more people are experiencing yeast problems that are being misdiagnosed. Know of two women who were told by their doctors that nothing was wrong with was all psychosomatic! Having enlightened them to the complications with yeast and referred them to books and the doctors I have found that at least believe in systemic yeast infections, they are now on their way back to health. I have nothing but positive things to say about this book and am eternally grateful to the authors for their expertise. It may not be a best seller, but it has contributed greatly to saving my life and my sanity! Well done--I'd give them ten stars if the rating went that high!!!!!
