A yeast infection is an opportunistic infection caused by fungus, typically Candida albicans. This problem affects women from all ages. Even babies can get a yeast infection and men can too. But what happens when this fungus builds up in your body and actually causes yeast related drunkenness?
There once was a man named Charlie Swaart who lived in Arizona. For nearly a decade he would occasionally become a sloppy, hostile, and occasionally a violent drunk even though he hadn’t drank any alcohol. On at least one occasion Charlie Swaart was picked up for driving drunk.
Due to the unusual circumstances surrounding the event of being pulled over for drunkenness while behind the wheel, his Arizona physician learned of a report from Japan that described drunkenness that was actually caused by an overgrowth of Candida albicans in the digestive system. The physician put charlie on nystatin and he showed very good—even dramatic—improvement.
According to Dr. William G. Crook, M.D.: “Charlie passed away several years ago. Although I never met him, we talked on the phone on several occasions in the 1980s. We also exchanged letters. During our conversations, Charlie pointed out that yeast-induced intoxication isn’t rare. To support his point of view, he told me that he and his wife had received hundreds of telephone calls and letters from people all over the world describing yeast-related drunkenness.” (The Yeast Connection and the Woman, by William G. Crook, M.D., p.603)
Dr. Crook in his book The Yeast Connection and the Woman, has many different accounts that he relates about people who have become intoxicated from the fungus growing inside their intestinal system.

Is Candida Albicans the Same as Brewer’s Yeast?
Yeast as a fungus metabolizes sugars and turns them into alcohol. The same type of yeast that brewers use to make alcohol are not the same as the types of yeast that cause yeast infections. These yeasts used for making alcohol are known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and do not cause yeast infections.
Dr. William G. Crook also relates a story about an unnamed woman which he calls Melinda. Melinda had suffered from a compound fracture of her bones in her right leg. A day or so after she became injured she developed a very bad infection. To treat the infection, the physicians prescribed antibiotics which she took for the next three weeks.
Antibiotics have the unfortunate side effect of wiping out all the friendly microscopic bacteria inside a patient’s body as well as treating the bad bacteria which the antibiotics are intended for. As a result of there not being much competition for food and other resources in the body, Candida albicans can grow unchecked after a patient ingests large amounts of antibiotics for periods of time.
Melinda would later, after taking the antibiotics for three weeks, go out to eat with a friend. She had two big glasses of sugary cola (perfect for yeast to metabolize into alcohol) along with two eight ounce glasses of wine. When Melinda was driving home she decided to pull her car to the side of the road to show the apartment building where another friend lived. A police officer stopped to check to ensure Melinda was not having difficulties with her car. The police officer noticed alcohol on her breath and took her to the police station and drew Melinda’s blood. The analysis done by a toxicologist showed Melinda’s blood alcohol level at .205.
A study done by Drs. Stephen Daves, John Howard, and Dr. Adrian Hunnisett found that people with yeast related health maladies can sometimes have nutritional deficiencies which interfere with the metabolism of alcohol. The lack of metabolizing alcohol correctly by the body can cause there to be higher levels of alcohol in the blood.
