    Baker's Yeast Allergy - Causes, Symptoms, and Ayurvedic Treatment

    A food intolerance occurs when your body mistakes a harmless food protein as a threat and produces IgG antibodies, which may result in inflammation and discomfort. Yeast is a living fungus which is used as an active ingredient in many foods and drinks, especially baked goods (baker’s yeast) and alcoholic drinks (brewer’s yeast). Yeast allergy can affect the entire body, leading to skin reactions, changes in mood, and widespread body pain. These reactions can be dangerous and can cause long-term damage to the body.


    According to Ayurveda Science, Asatmya means unwholesome and Satmya means suitability to some things, which are favorable for one’s own self. A substance can be Asatmya to an individual in the form of aahara and vihara which when consumed may cause an altered response in the body of that individual. All types of food allergies can be related to this concept.


    Dr. Gupta’s IAFA successfully address this condition and provides very safe and effective treatment for Baker’s Yeast Allergy.
