5.0 out of 5 stars literally a 'life saving' book 25 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Size Name:Each
as a sufferer of candida for the past 15 years, i was looking for a book that would give me information concerning the disease of candida and the connection it had with yeast.a yeast infection/overgrowth is hard to get rid of and causes many symptoms which leads to depression. medical practitioners are quick to disregard any talk about internal yeast infections being a health problem.this shows the modern doctor at his/her most incompetent and ignorant state.the book carefully explains what problems yeast causes and how to overcome the yeast overgrowth which is a difficult task. after reading the book i was able to get rid of my 15 year candida overgrowth and now have full health. no headaches, pains or skin problems. A 'must read' book for all healthy conscious people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Way to Raise Your Expectations. 9 Jan 2013
Size Name:Each|Verified Purchase
Different ideas are worth exploring, and all the more so, if you have long term health issues to contend with. Thos book raises an area that few have ever thought about. It is to early for me to recommend the suggestions, but I can recommend reading the book, and weighing up what it says for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars HUGE help for those suffering from intestinal yeast! 5 Dec 1999
By groundless - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name:Each
This book is one of the most comprehensive books on intestinal yeast and its trauma I have seen to date. Just by taking some of the recommendations: acidophilus, a multi-vitamin, and severely reducing the sugar, yeast and pasta in my diet has made an incredible difference in my symptoms and the way I feel in the past month. I recommend this to anyone with intestinal yeast because the improvement, though not 100% is very drastic! I am feeling better every day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeast Connection Handbook 24 Jun 2000
By Connie Bloss - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name:Each
Dr. Crook's book saved my life. Before his program I suffered from blurred vision, headaches, weight gain, low energy, dizzy spells, depression and a multitude of other ailments. Since January I have lost 30 pounds, have clear thinking, improved vision, a positive outlook on life, and boundless energy. I am ordering two more copies of this book; one for my daughter and one for my best friend Carole who is in the hospital. The book is an easy read, makes a lot of sense, easy to follow and the recipes are tasty and filling. My husband also is on the program with me. He no longer suffers from heartburn and his cholesterol has dropped over 150 points. This works and we are blessed to have Dr, Crook researching and continuing to assist others. Thank you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough on alternative treatment 3 Sep 2000
By Helene - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name:Each
I was disappointed after I read the book. It is loaded with explanations on what candida intolerance is and describe in details the symptoms suffered, but there was nothing there that I did not already know by surfing the internet. I found the part on changing the diet very good. My main reason for buying the book was that I thought there would be more on alternative treatment... Yes, the book does say that you should try the probiotic, caprylic acid, echinacea, Co10Q, etc, but does not offer any type of indication as to what standardized extract should be used, what to look for in a specific product, or how much to take and when, to maximize their effectiveness. Now it's back to the internet to find out...

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book to learn about candida and how to remedy it. 21 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name:Each
Read Dr. Crook's book, if you have taken repeated doses of antibiotics, suffer from chronic yeast infections, or have any of the new modern diseases, CFS, FMS, even ADD. Candida effects both men and women. You can give Dr. Crook's book to your physician. Tell your physician that you want to get tested for yeast imbalance, and then hand him or her the "The Yeast Connection Handbook". Appendix A, "A Special Message To The Physician", has information directed toward skeptical doctors.
My physician knew about candida problems and treatment. She prescribed a yeast-sensitivity panel for me (available from Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory - see pages 200-205, Lab #10 on page 205), so my gut candida could be killed with the right medications. Retake a yeast-sensitivity panel every so often. You may have several strains of yeast that develop in your gut, those that grow will be ones that have a pre-existing or newly-developed immunity to your anti-candida medication. If you eat sugar while you take your anti-candida medication, immune candida may thrive in your gut. If that happens, you will need to test again and cycle through another round of anti-candida treatment.
In Chapter 9 of "The Yeast Connection Handbook", Dr. Crook offers his recommendations for dietary and lifestyle changes to include along with your anti-candida medical treatment. Follow his recommendations. You may also read the book "Yeast Connection Success Stories", to grasp what people have done to keep their candida under control after their medical treatment was over. You will understand how important lifestyle changes are to staying symptom-free.
"The Yeast Connection Handbook" contains so much information: instructions to follow, doctor's statements, case studies, lab names, medication names, and extended references. Reading a few paragraphs in the right chapter could change your life. Browse the table of contents and index. Take careful notes. This book has valuable information on every page.
Knowledge of yeast-related diseases truly is new information for the twenty-first century. Dr. Crook shines the light of his knowledge on the subject. His book "The Yeast Connection Handbook" brings valuable information to you and to the mainstream medical community.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy to follow handbook on treating yeast disorders 29 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Crook's "The Yeast Connection Handbook" is an easy to read, self-help guide to understanding and treating the problem of yeast disorders. This book I found much more "user friendly" than the original version "the Yeast Connection" because of how it is layed out: content, font-type, chapters, etc.
Dr. Crook gives hundreds of references and case studies that can assist the patient when talking with their own physician. This was especially helpful for me and my husband when dealing with an HMO doctor that had little knowledge of the subject or its treatment.
This is a valuable book for ANYONE (man, woman and child) that has had various ailments or recurring infections and wants to get healthy!
Here's to understanding "the yeast connection" and a better life!
