Child Candida Symptoms How To Recognize The Child Candida Patient
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thank you again for tuning into my tutorial. I really appreciate you watching my tutorials.This is the third one in a threepart series on how to recognize the Candida patient. Idid one previously on how to recognize the female patient who you suspect has Candida.I've just done one on the male and this is the third one. How to recognize a child witha yeast infection. I'll read a bit more out of my book.A child with Candida can be mislabeled hyperactive or learning disabled by a practitioner whodoes not fully understand the true significance
of pediatric yeast syndrome. William Crook,who wrote the Yeast Syndrome, was a pediatrician who noticed that many of his young patientswould improve significantly once the yeast overgrowth was eradicated. It's a pity thatmany pediatricians today do not have the same level of al experience with intestinaldysbiosis and children's health that Crook had.Children who have Candida may manifest multiple allergic syndromes that can affect them onmany different levels. These children can even display behavioral and learning difficultiesas a result of individual reactions to foods, chemicals and preservatives and may be linkedto a Candida yeast infection. In my al
experience, some children do not need drugslike Ritalin after all. Particularly, if they are first assessed and treated for allergiesand carefully screened for Candida and yeast infections or SIBO, small intestinal bacterialovergrowth. Like William Crook, I've certainly noticed over the years that children who haveboth behavioral and learning disabilities as well as yeast infections display a markedreduction of symptoms once the Candida is eliminated, much to their parents' relief.A very important part of Candida treatment with children is getting them away from sweetsas much as possible. And a good way to start is by eliminating all soda drinks, candy,sweets, and unnecessary food and drink items.
This can present as a challenge and you willfind it an easier task with younger as opposed to older children. Believe me, I have fourchildren, and I know how difficult it can be, but it is achievable. Especially if youoffer your child fruits instead of highly processed sweets, ice cream, candy and sodadrinks. Even though fruits contain sugar, they don't contain the same kind of sugaras you would give straight out candy or ice cream. Give them diluted juices to step themdown. A case comes to mind. About a year ago, ofa lady who brought me a fiveyearold boy with an incredible attitude problem. In myroom, he was pulling all my books off the
shelf. He was jumping on the furniture andhe was very disruptive. The mom told me that she was feeding him one and half kilogramsof cheese a week. That equates to I think about three or four pounds of cheese in aweek. Just giving him big slices whenever he was screaming. I mentioned to her aboutthis connection with the molds, potentially the allergies and the behavior, and she wasa little bit. quot;How can that cause any problems?quot; But the amazing thing is when the child wasbrought back in about six weeks, he sat there on the chair with his hands folded on hislap and didn't move. And she said to me, quot;It's incredible how he's changed.quot; And it was justthe cheese. Food is really, in some cases,
linked up to behavioral problems, so justpay attention to that. How do you recognize a child potentially witha yeast infection? Let's read some things out of my book here. The case history willoften tell you if you're dealing with a child who has Candida or not. I regularly have naturopathicstudents who sit in for observations in my , and I like them to be aware of theimportance of case taking when it comes to children in the , especially. A casewell taken is a case half solved. What happened in the past is probably one of the most importantquestions you can ask a mother? It's surprising how when you ask a mother when her child wasprescribed an antibiotic in relation to her
