Yeast infections are terrible things.  If you’ve ever had one, you know how awful it can be.  There’s a common misconception that “yeast” only affects women – but that couldn’t be further from the truth!  The dangers of yeast can affect people of all backgrounds and ages! Candida albicans is a single-celled yeast (similar to fungus) that is just one of several hundred species of microorganisms living in your gut.  Another species, Candida glabrata can also raise its ugly head. Normally Candida poses no threat to your health.  It’s kept in check by your beneficial gut bacteria.  However, when...
