How Is Candida Diagnosed

Thanks for checking out my tutorial today. Howis Candida diagnosed? How do we know we have it? How do we know we're not just imaginingwe've got this disease? I think the best way to diagnose chronic Candida,particularly, is the stool test. I think it's the ultimate way. There are different waysyou can test for Candida in the body. You can do blood testing, for example, for particularantigens, Candida antigens in the body. You can do what we call organic acids urine testto look at the metabolites, the products broken down in the body that tell you if Candidahas been there. There are different ways we can test, but I think the ultimate test isthe comprehensive digestive stool analysis

test. Three samples. Three concurrent days.I work with a couple of labs. If you go to EricBakker , you can find out more abouttesting there. I work with a couple of labs in America. My favorite lab is 's Datain Chicago. I'll tell you why I like the stool test. It'sbecause it just doesn't tell me if the patient's got Candida or not. It tells me a lot of information.They do a really good microbiology panel to show me the level of beneficial bacteria,what we call the commensals and the bad bacteria. So the beneficial bacteria should generallyin a healthy patient be a three or a four plus behind the beneficial. Many people, infact, have a zero like NG, no growth, or one

plus.The commensals are bacteria that can turn good or bad. Healthy people have got no commensalsor very low levels. People with severe Candida can have 9 or 10 different strains of commensalbacteria, and the pathogenic ones are the nasty ones. These are the terrorists of thegut. I call the commensals the politicians of the gut. They can change. Go good or baddepending on what's happening around them at the time, so you've got the good guys,the politicians, and the ISIS militants or the terrorists. These guys are downright nasty,so you don't want to have those in the gut at all.So this is a culture, so they actually try

and grow these bugs in the stool. They doa microscopy as well, so they actually microscopically so they look at the stool to see if they cansee any white spicules or Candida there. They also try and culture the stool for yeast,and I've seen anything up to 5 or 10, even 15 strains of Candida grown in stool samples.Just imagine if you've got low beneficials and you've got Candida albicans cultured inall three stool samples, it's quite bad. That's a serious yeast infection.When you pass out a stool sample, you should not be able to pass out any viable live yeast.If you can culture Candida from a stool sample, it means you've got active growing Candidain the stool itself, which is a pretty serious

yeast infection.The other thing I like about the stool testing is the fact that we can look at the immunologyof the bowel. We can look at what we call the circulatory IgA, which is an immunoglobulinA, which is one of the most abundant immunoglobulins or antibodies found in your whole body. Thebody makes a couple of grams of it, one to two grams of it per day. You'll find it inthe stool in set levels, so if we find the levels very high or very low, it will giveus an idea that you've got serious immune activity happening in the digestive system.The body is trying to bind to things and take it out. If it's very up regulated or downregulated in conjunction with these bacteria,

it gives me a lot of useful information aboutyou, what's going on in your life. We can even do a cancer marker in the stool,so we can see how high your risk is for bowel cancer, if you've got a risk there at all.There are many other things we can look at. They also look at a fat stain, for example,and they check for fibers and meat fibers and things, so they can see how well yourdigestive system is working, to see if the enzymes are breaking things down properly.It's very important for good health to have very good digestive function, to break downfood properly to the smallest substrates that allow the beneficial bacteria feed on thosethings and thrive. We need to feed them up.

How To Get RID Of Biofilms

Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of Canxida, the Candida dietary supplementsof choice. Thanks for tuning into my tutorial. Today, we're going to talk about biofilm eradication.You may have seen some of my other tutorials explaining about biofilms, how they are basicallymicro colonies that form of bacteria, yeast, or even a combination of both of those, andthey live in various parts of the body. They can live in the nose. They can cause dentalplaque. They can be involved in vaginal yeast infection, jock itch, in the gut, and manyother areas of the body these colonies can form. And they cover themselves with a particulartype of a layer, and that's why they're called

a biofilm. They can be hard to eradicate.Biofilm eradication really requires a multistage approach. You're not really going to nailthis thing just with one thing. Taking a pill isn't really going to cut it. You need todo a little bit more than that. Let's just go over a few different things you can reallydo to help eradicate biofilm. We have to really prevent a biofilm formationin the first place. We have to really disrupt the attachment of the biofilm to the surfacethat it's adhered to. We have to also interfere with what we call quot;quorum sensing.quot; Quorumsensing is something I've spoken about in a previous tutorial. This is basically how thebugs communicate with each other inside these

colonies. For a colony to really thrive therehas to be a lot of cooperation going on. Food has to go into the colony, and wastes haveto be transported out. And they have to reproduce quite effectively, and quorum sensing is acomplicated term explaining how that cooperation occurs. So we've got to disrupt this cooperation.We have to modulate the type of biofilm. What we've got to do is shift the biofilm to planktonicbacteria. I've spoken previously about what planktonic bacteria and biofilm are. Thinkabout planktonic bacteria or yeast as like yeast or bacteria floating freely versus thebiofilm, where they live in colonies. What we want to do is shift the film into the planktonictype, so the immune system can really nail

these little things getting around in thebloodstream. And we've got to promote detachment of the biofilm to break the biofilm up.We have to disrupt the shield, the actual shield. So think of it like a glass dome andyou've got a city living inside a glass dome. You've got to smash this dome, break it, sowe can get in there, and pull these buildings apart. Mechanical and physical means and alsothere's herbal medicines I recommend that I use that are very effective in smashingthe shield and helping to pulverize these buildings down. And then the last one is developmentof biofilm resistant surfaces. So what we want to really do is give a good course ofprobiotics to help stop attachment of these

bugs onto these surfaces to build the biofilmall over again. As I mentioned previously, people often withvery low levels of beneficial bacteria that I see in stool tests are much more prone toserious biofilm formation. I see that routinely in stool tests. There are many different typesof herbs that I use for biofilm eradication. And I developed a product for Candida, butit also works beautifully for biofilm eradication. And that's called Canxida Remove. It containsall the key things in it you want, and I'll explain more about these kinds of herbal medicinesin subsequent tutorials. But you really want to get a good standardized garlic extract.You want to get oregano oil. You want to get

grapefruit seed extract. You want to use differentkinds of herbs that are specifically indicated for working on bacteria and on Candida, andthey're going to help to break the shield down, disrupt the quorum communication, killdirectly, eradicate, inhibit reproduction, muck up the food supply. All these thingsare going to really be achieved by giving a very good balanced herbal formula in a timereleasedproduct. And that's why I developed Canxida Remove because I knew that most people withserious Candida infections, in fact, have got biofilm.Anyone with chronic Candida will almost certainly have a biofilm in their digestive system thatneeds eradicating and in other parts of their
