Do I Have A Yeast Infection Test

How to Cure Candida in 6 Steps

Hey, guys. Axe here, of functionalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . Today I'm going to share with you the exact diet, treatmentand supplements you need to take the clear Candida from your body. And this is what Ireally consider to be my SixStep Candida Cure Diet Protocol. And you're going to seeamazing results with this protocol. And let me say this first, what is Candida?Candida is the overgrowth of yeast and bad bacteria in your body and it can cause somemajor symptoms that you want to get rid of. And so some of the symptoms of Candida caninclude any type of fatigue issue. If you struggle with chronic fatigue or adrenal fatigue,those can be related to Candida.

Any type of leaky gut issue. Leaky gut isintestinal permeability, where proteins like gluten can leak through your gut and causeinflammation of your body. So if you have food sensitivities or if you have digestiveissues like gas and bloating, also if you have any problem related to the thyroid, thosecan be warning signs you have Candida. Also if you get yeast in your body. If younotice, let's say, yeast or whiteness on your tongue or if you ever get chronic yeast infectionsor coming down with the cold and flu often, those can be warning signs that you have Candida.And, of course, also with Candida any sort of other digestive issues, like irritablebowel syndrome or chronic diarrhea or constipation

or even acid reflux, those are warning signsthat you might have Candida. And last but not least, is a sluggish metabolism.If you aren't losing weight and burning fat like you know you should be, those are warningsigns you could have Candida, along with actually even bad breath and lack of detoxification.Those are some major warning signs. So here are the six things you need to do to eliminateCandida fast. Number one, you need to stop consuming somuch sugar. Now, I know that's obvious. That's something that I think most of us realizeis that sugar feeds yeast in your body. But again, you have got to get rid of processedsugar, fruit juices, any sort of added sugar

to any sort of product sweetener. Even mostpackaged products and fast foods are also high in sugar. Even things like pasta saucesand crackers, you'd be surprised, but sugar is added to almost everything. So again, eliminate especially the processedsugar out of your diet. As a replacement, I recommend using a little bit of Stevia,which is a nocalorie natural sweetener and then about one to three teaspoons a day ofmanuka honey. Okay? Those are the sweeteners you should be using if you have Candida. Number two. You need to eliminate grains fromyour diet. Why? Because grains turn into sugar

and they also tend to be more inflammatory.And so again, getting those grains out of your diet, especially wheat products and glutencontaininggrains, that's step number two. Instead, do a lot more vegetables and maybe some starchycarbs. Number three thing you have to do to clearCandida from you system, is support your spleen. Now, this is cuttingedge information thata lot of people don't realize. And this is a practice in Ancient China that is oftenused by acupuncturists today. But they have found that the number one cause of Candidais a weakened spleen. And so if you have spleen issues, and spleen is responsible for digestionof the body, producing red blood cells in

your system. And so the spleen is a very importantorgan. In order to support the spleen, there area couple things you need to do. But really the spleen is supported by starchy foods,especially squash, things like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and also even doing certaintypes of beans like lentils and mung beans. So again, getting some of those good starchycarbs. And that's really where your sweetness shouldcome from. A little bit of butternut squash, acorn squash, foods like that that has thatmild sweetness. That's the only sweet you should be really getting in your diet. Again,with no processed sugar and, again, very low

How Do You Diagnose Yeast Infections

Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusher.Thanks for tuning into this tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you a bit aboutdiagnosing yeast infections. On how to diagnose yeast infections, the importance of diagnosingyeast infection. You may be a person who has a particular interestin trying to understand if he or she has a yeast infection, and what are the best waysto go about diagnosing this yeast infection. Up until fairly recently, a lack of scientificevidence of very high quality, scientifically validated tests have certainly affected usfrom really trying to work out if a patient did have a yeast infection or not. There aremany different tests you can do. I've completed

over a thousand stool tests on patients overthe years, and don't tend to test as much as I used to test these days unless I've gotparticular cases or severe cases of long duration. I will often still do a stool test for thatreason. But in many cases, the signs and symptoms and the presenting pattern that the patientcomes into the with will often be enough for me to understand if they've got a significantyeast infection or not. For you, it may be very important at hometo work out quot;Do I have a yeast infection or don't I have one?quot; What are the best waysto go about that? If you look at Chapter 3 in my book, Candida Crusher, you'll find avery extensive list of signs and symptoms

of the common ones and the not so common ones.You'll also find sections on how to diagnose yeast infections in or how to recognize thispattern in children, men and women. And you're going to find some interesting stuff there;things that you may not have even thought about. Many practitioners tend to overlook many ofthe subtle signs of a Candida yeast infection. They only look for the very obvious patternslike skin itching or diarrhea or bowel problems. But many people tend to forego one of thesymptoms that we could easily pass off as something else. And one of those, in particular,is brain fog or what some people call quot;fibro

fogquot;, a fibromyalgia fog. Brain fog is somethingI see particularly common with a lot of chronic cases. Joint inflammation, painful muscles,visual disturbances, black spots before the eyes, popping sounds in the ears, the listgoes on and on, and you can read that in Chapter 3 of my book and yeastinfection will alsohave a relatively good list of signs and symptoms and other things to pick up for. I certainlyencourage you to have a look at that site, and particularly my book, for a lot more information. In tutorials up ahead, I'm going to go to intomuch more detail about conventional testing and diagnosing of yeast infections. Explaina bit more about that; explain about the two

different types of blood tests that swill do, a urine test, the stool test. I'll also talk about functional medicine testingor testing that I do, stool testing in particular, which I find very, very useful for pickinga whole raft of information up off the patient to really allow me to accurately pinpointtreatment. I think you're going to find stool testing quite beneficial. Please read the information that you findon my site, yeastinfection . And if that's not enough for you, there's plenty of informationon that site. You can always get my book, Candida Crusher. And please join our mailinglist if you've not already joined my mailing

list. This tutorial will be part of an extensiveCandida Crusher educational course which I'm offering online for free for people if youdon't wish to purchase my book just yet or maybe later but want a lot of good free information.This will be one tutorial in a series of many tutorials for such people to learn. We're talking about diagnosing yeast infectionstoday, but as I said, there'll be tutorials coming up on stool testing and conventional testingas part of this series. I hope you found this information useful todayand thank you for joining me. Thank you.

How To Test For Candida Yeast Infection

Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusher.Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you a littlebit about testing for Candida yeast infections. Many patients who come to see me want to knowwhether they have an infection or not. They go to their or they go to their naturopathand they're told that they've got all these problems, but then they reply, What are theseproblems? Can we do a test for these problems? What are they? So the medical willhave a few tests that he or she may perform, but not many patients with Candida yeast infectionsare really tested when they go to their medical . If the suspects a vaginal yeastinfection or thrush, then he or she may perform

a test, a smear test, to determine that, andthat will be sent away and those cells will be checked out. They'll be cultured. They'llgo to a special lab to see whether it's bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. But generally, a won't test any furtherthan that in terms of digestive problems or inflammation or brain fog or any of the othersubtle signs and symptoms of a yeast infection. The patient may be given a digestive product,maybe an acid blocker. They may be given a sleeping pill or an antiinflammatory, butI don't usually find that medical s will test any further than perhaps doing avaginal check. Or maybe in some cases with

a male, they may do a skin scraping of a particulararea and then get that checked. The issue I have with the medical test to determineyeast infections and many other health conditions are that they are defined more by statisticalnorms rather than physiological norms. By that, I mean they really work on a slidingscale from say 1 to 10. If you come back as 1.5 in the bottom end of that reference rangeor 9.5, you're deemed to be perfectly normal. In natural medicine, we don't really lookat it like that. We look more at the physiological norm. We're going to be more interested toget you around four, five, or six, which will be more of a midpoint, which we deem to bea really good range for you to be in. That's

one concern I have is looking at these norms. The other concern I have, really, with themedical testing is if a test comes back positive, it will often lead to the prescription ofa pharmaceutical drug. And in many cases, it will be an antibiotic or antifungal; itwill be an quot;antiquot; type of a drug, which will only create further problems. And if the can diagnose you with any particular test, then he or she may even think that you'vegot depression or anxiety and send you to a psychiatrist. And that's what happened tome. I was told to go to a psychiatrist when Ihad Candida because my problems were all in

my head. Well, they were in my head partiallybecause I had brain fog, but what the didn't know is I had a lot of digestive problemsthat he really should have gone further in looking at. And for that reason, now I doa lot of stool testing, comprehensive digestive stool testing. You're going to see a lot moretutorials on stool testing. I'll explain to you a lot more about the markers and what theymean, and how to interpret this very, very important test. In my book, Candida Crusher, I call the comprehensivestool test the quot;Rolls Roycequot; of tests because you can determine a whole bunch of stuff fromthis test. You can look at digestive markers,

inflammatory markers, and immune markers.It goes on and on and on; there's a whole lot of information that we can acquire fromthis test, which can give us a very accurate indication of the health of your whole digestivesystem. It also shows me where to pinpoint the treatment. It gives me a good idea onthe severity of your condition and how long it's going to take to get well. There are various tests that the andthe naturopath will perform to determine a yeast infection. As I mentioned, the may perform a smear test to determine whether it's vaginal thrush or vaginosis or an STDof some form. A may perform a stool
