OHIO - It sounds strange. It sounds crazy. Nick Hess of Columbus wasn't sure what was wrong with him. "I couldn't move. I couldn't get off my couch," Hess said. His wife said it looked like he was drunk and, even though he was sober, he smelled of alcohol, he said.
"I would slur my speech and stumble," Hess said. For three years, Nick went to three specialists who couldn't diagnosis his condition, he said. Finally, he heard of Dr. Anup Kanodia's approach to medicine and made an appointment. "He was vomiting, two times a day and dry-heaving ten to twelve times a day," said Dr. Kanodia, a graduate of Northeast Ohio Medical University.
Dr. Kanodia diagnosed Nick with "excessive yeast."
"He had 400% the normal amount of yeast in his gut," he said. "Whenever he would eat pasta or bread, the yeast in there - the sugar would feed it. He was fermenting enough the he was drunk to blow positive on a Breathalyzer." Nick's case is rare. Dr. Kanodia admits this research and treatments are not yet mainstream in the medical world, but believes with time, more doctors will accept it.
"With the amount of carbs we are eating, the amount of sugars we are eating, this is fuel for yeast," Dr. Kanodia said. Nick changed his diet to reduce sugary foods and now focuses primarily on grass-fed beef and leafy green vegetables. I feel great," said Nick.
