Re: CFS - the yeast connection
I've recently been diagnosed with FMS and CFS but I've had problems for years. I went on a yeast free diet(I didn't go off sugar, but everything that had yeast extract in, plums, cheese etc) in about 2000, and I have to say amazingly it worked! I stopped falling asleep all the time and my stomach pains went (I also had IBS) I am still on a yeast free diet although admittedly not as strict as I was (which maybe why my symptoms have got worse recently) I can tell the difference on the odd occasion I treat myself to a bit of pizza.
So yes, I would say there is something in the yeast free diet. I also have a colleague who has fibro and is on a low sugar, low carb diet and she says the results are amazing.
Good luck with what ever you decide to do. I think even if you give it a go for just a few weeks it's worth a try. Maybe it'll work for you, maybe it won't. You've got nothing to loose.
