Is Yeast Causing Your Sweet Tooth?

Is Yeast Causing Your Sweet Tooth?

Could yeast be controlling your life? Like what you eat? How you feel? Even your motivation? Millions of people, around 80 million it’s estimated, have a battle with this single-cell fungus that they cannot even see. Normally, this yeast is harmless. But Candida cells can develop rapidly with the right conditions. Eating too many sweets and refined carbs, alcohol, and junk food, taking certain prescription drugs, or fighting an illness can upset the status quo in your gut. Then Candida can grow out of control. The result is a long list of health problems that many doctors never are able to diagnose let alone know how to treat. This fungus can rob you of energy and steal your quality and enjoyment of life.

If you suspect that you may have candidiasis, take the quiz. Get your score. If it’s high, get help. My program 10 Step Sugar Detox and The Yeast Control Products are designed to help you get this condition under control so you can take your life back.


If you suspect you might suffer from candidiasis, W. G. Crook, M.D. has developed a questionnaire that you can fill out to determine the likelihood. There are different point scores at the end of each question. Note the points and add them up. The score evaluation is at the end of the quiz.

What Your Score Means

Women         Men

>180                                   >140                   Yeast- connected health problems are almost certainly present

120-180                             90-140               Yeast-connected health problems are probably present

60-119                                40-89                 Yeast-connected health problems are possibly present

<60                                    <40                      Yeast-connected health problems are less likely to be present


This questionnaire is adapted from W. G. Crook The Yeast Connection.


Although the Candida Questionnaire can help determine your condition, ultimately the best method for diagnosing candidiasis is clinical evaluation by a physician knowledgeable about yeast-related illness.

If your score indicates you have a yeast overgrowth, I highly recommend the yeast control products: Yeast Max, YeastZyme Max, and Ultimate FloraMax Advanced Care 100 Billion    (30 caps)
