The premise of the book "The Yeast Connection", is very convincing regarding dozens of maladies that are supposedly caused by an overgrowth of candida. Though we all have yeast in our bodies, at all times, I'm sure too much of it can cause some problems, but IMHO, I seriously doubt that it would change the structure of our bodies and cause CH. If that were the case, then why are some of us chronic, and some episodic. (And why don't more people have CH??)
I think blaming a substance, such as yeast is too simplistic an answer, for such a complicated syndrome. And while I'm not saying that getting rid of an overgrowth of yeast won't make us healthier, I can't convince myself that it causes Cluster headaches, therefore by removing it, I will be cured.
Pain free days ahead
