Pixu, Sugar, Yeast Infection, Asthma, Headaches, Mood, Allergies
by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu
Pixu condition creates digestive problem. Food allergies may develop when food is not digested properly and causes fermentation activated by yeast in the bowel. This process further increase the amount yeast in the digestive tract. The increase level of yeast causes the increased permeability of the wall of the intestine (leaky gut syndrome). The micro-organisms (yeast) then enter the blood stream and settle in the different parts of the body, including the lungs, the vagina, the kidneys, and the brain, and other organs. This can create yeast infection of the vagina (candidiasis), allergy, sinus infections, asthma, meningitis, chronic fatigue, etc. Eating food high in sugar or food turning into blood sugar rapidly enhances this problem. Food high in sugar causes fermentation, resulting increase of yeast population in the digestive tract. It causes the blood sugar to rise initially and drop rapidly to under the normal healthy level. The drop of blood sugar causes the production of serotonin to go down and causes depression or mania. The decrease of serotonin causes the production of histamine. Histamine causes the expansion of blood vessels. The expansion of blood vessels in the wrong places causes problems. Over expansion of blood vessels causes liquid in the blood vessels to leak out. When liquid leaks out into sinus area it causes nasal drip. When it drips into the bronchi, it causes asthma. When it drips into the brain, it causes headaches.
In some report, hypoglycemia (can be caused by eating too much sugar at one time) causes the immune system to be weakened and increases the chance to get polio.
