Yeast Infections

The significance of yeast in the diagnosis of mold exposure is commonly overlooked.

Due to the molecular structure of yeast, unlike fungus, it can travel unimpaired from organ to organ throughout the human body. Yeast also forces cellular activity in the human body, which can cause ancillary adverse health effects which many doctors cannot associate with mold exposure or mold sickness.

Common yeast infections may be a sign of mold exposure such as, "Thrush", yeast colonization in the mouth, usually seen as white or brown patches on the tongue. Vaginal yeast infections are also another indicator of mold exposure, especially if they are chronic. 

If yeast is in the body it must be addressed at the same time as any fungal components or secondary metabolites if the patient is to fully recover. Failure to do so will result in patient relapse.
