I’m yeast-sensitive, so I take probiotics and limit my intake of sugar. But when hot weather hits, I still struggle with tiredness, bloat and yeast infections. Is there anything else I can do?

 You’re on the right track—taking probiotics and avoiding sugar, alcohol and processed carbs is key to keeping yeast at bay. But I suggest one more line of defense during the summer, when hot and humid environments make it easier for yeast to grow and spread: Take a daily supplement with 250 mcg of molybdenum. This mineral breaks down acetaldehyde, a toxin produced by yeast that causes fatigue, bloat and weight gain. Molybdenum also works to prevent yeast from multiplying, essentially giving probiotics a helping hand. Most of my clients see a reduction in symptoms within 10 days, though I advise taking molybdenum throughout the season to ensure over-growth doesn’t take hold.
