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
What Is The Difference Between A Yeast Infection And An STD
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. What is the difference between a yeast infectionand an STD? An STD is a sexually transmitted disease.Well, there are quite a few differences between both of these problems. An STD is generallya disease transmitted between two people through sexual contact: oral sex, anal sex, straightsex, whatever sex you want to call it. Sometimes in rare cases, STDs can be transferred throughneedle sharing, although in more rare situations. Yeast infections can be sexually transmitted.Don't ever doubt that. But everybody will
contain in their bodies, in the digestivesystem, females in the vaginal area they will have yeast to some degree. And it's when theseyeast get out of hand that you're going to get an infection. Particularly, when theyproliferate or if they're exacerbated through antibiotic use, which is a very common causeof yeast infections, is taking antibiotics. So there is a difference between a yeast infectionand an STD, but STDs are not yeast infections, generally, in terms of only being transmittedsexually, where sexually transmitted diseases are transmitted sexually like Chlamydia andGonorrhea and Syphilis. These diseases are transmitted through the sexual route.
You can read a lot more about the differenttypes of STDs in my book. In fact, I've drawn you a big diagram showing you all the differentsexually transmitted diseases, the discharge, the irritation, whether they itch, what odorsthey have, and I've compared those with a yeast infection to give you a good comparison. A very common thing that many women have isbacterial vaginosis, which they confuse for a yeast infection. So it's good for you toknow the difference between a yeast infection and Chlamydia, for example, or Gonorrhea becausethese diseases do resurface from time and time again.
Is there a difference? Yes, there is a differencebetween them both. But a yeast infection can be transmitted sexually, but is not a sexuallytransmitted disease per se. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
Can Male Yeast Infections Involve The Penis And Scrotum
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into this tutorial today. You may have seen some of my previous tutorialsregarding menls yeast infections. Ilve made a few recently regarding jock itch. Anotherpopular tutorial which many people have looked at is one regarding small white bumps on thepenis. In this tutorial today, Ilm going to talk about a condition I see quite a lot in malesand is basically an itching area of the private parts again of the penis and also scrotaland analrectal areas. These tutorial clips Ilm going to do becausetheylre very important and you can understand
why Ilve disabled comments on many of my tutorials.Many YouTube clips I look at are from health care professionals like myself that have gottenvery inappropriate comments. Thatls why I donlt believe I should enable comments onthese tutorials. Pardon me for taking that liberty. Letls continue on. This is an important tutorialbecause this is a condition I see in many men, and this is a condition that not manypeople talk about due to fear or embarrassment. But I can tell you people out there now, womensuffer from yeast infections; we know that, but lots of guys suffer from them, too. Andthey hate them. Theylre embarrassing. Theylre uncomfortable. They just find them awful,but they live with them; they deal with them.
And they go and see their and oftenget a cream and itls ineffective. The causes arenlt addressed and the condition goes onunabated and sometimes for years, and it can ruin a guyls life entirely. Ilve seen dozens and dozens, hundreds of menwith this condition. Let me tell you now folks, this affects men from all backgrounds, allincomes, all cultures; it makes no difference whether you are Indian, Muslim, American,or Irish, it makes no difference. If youlre a male and youlve got a penis, youlve gota â€“ obviously you have if youlre a male â€“ a typical guy can be prone to a yeastinfection if the conditions are right. Remember,
yeast likes dark; it likes moist; it likeswarmth. And for this reason, obviously, the groin and the private area and the armpits,these are prime targets for Candida yeast infections. The guys Ilve seen with yeast infections rangeover a wide range of men that Ilve seen with this condition. Ilve seen lots of mechanicswith it. Constructions workers, geologists, taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers;Ilve seen airline pilots with it. Ilve even seen scientists with it and lab workers. Ilvegot a couple of high court judges and many police officers; many, many different menhave this condition. And thatls because men
are men. Men like beer. They like wine. Theylike spirits. They like eating the foods that guys like to eat. They like football. Theylike hunting. They like all the things that guys like to do. As I say, it will not discriminate.This condition is not specific to a particular bluecollar worker or a laborer; it makesno difference what type of guy you are. How is a man going to get the infection? Well,the typical things we find are imbalances in the lifestyle. You may have read the casehistory of my father in my book. Dad liked sweet foods. He wasnlt really a big alcoholdrinker, but he loved sugary foods. He liked a cigarette. He liked snacking on foods. Andhe didnlt pay a lot of attention to what the
said because the was king, wasgod, the gave drugs, the never mentioned about a lifestyle, which his unfortunate. Men, for example, who drink alcohol, are primetargets for yeast infections, particularly, when they start taking antibiotics or pharmaceuticalsregularly. Men who take drugs for acidification of the stomach â€“ these acid blockers â€“ arealso prime targets. Guys who take any type of pharmaceutical drug over time. Guys whotend to work long hours or shift workers. Men who wear tight clothing, coveralls, forexample, or sit for long periods of time, who eat at weird times, wholve got shift work,who push their bodies hard. They go hunting
