The 10 Signs Of Candida And How To Treat Them
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker. I'm author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I've got a fan called prochessplayer. His name is Joshand Josh has asked me a few times now to do a tutorial called the 10 Signs of Candida andhow to treat them, so I'm going to have a go at this, Josh. Thanks for your ongoingsupport and I trust you'll get some good information out of this. I think Josh might live in Canada.I just got that feeling that he's a Canadian person judging from some of the comments Ireceived on YouTube. What I've done, Josh, is I've broken thisdown into different categories. I've got a
few gastrointestinal symptoms. I've got afew genital urinary symptoms, a few ear, nose and throat, a few skin ones and a few centralnervous systems. Because there are so many different signs and symptoms of Candida, I'mnot going to go into all of the different signs and symptoms of Candida. I'm just goingto really pick on 10 of the most common presentations that I would see in the , then I'm goingto explain a little bit about some of the best ways to treat these particular kindsof symptoms. Bear in mind that when you've got a yeastinfection, it's good, obviously, if it's a bad symptom to get symptom relief, but you'rebetter off really treating the condition as
a whole in terms of lifestyle and diet asI've explained in Candida Crusher. The quiz that we have created at yeastinfection also will give you a very good idea on how severe the yeast infection really is and itwill also show the different kinds of signs and symptoms as you grow through the screens.A lot of those signs and symptoms on that quiz I'm going to talk about here right nowon this tutorial. The first three signs and symptoms reallyrelate to gastrointestinal, so GI or gut issues tend to be some of the most common thingsthat people talk to me about when it comes to a yeast infection. Yeast tend to ferment.They love sugar. They cause fermentation and
that naturally causes bloating and gas, whichis probably one of the most common symptoms I hear people talking about is abdominal issues.It could be pain. It could be gas. It could be bloating. It could be farting. It couldbe lots of burping. We get that occasionally with people if they tend to get a lot of yeastin the upper part of the gut. Yeast can also thrive in the stomach, the small intestine,the large intestine, in the junction between the small and large intestine. Yeast havebeen known to flourish throughout the digestive system, so it's quite a fallacy to believethat they just live in the colon or the large intestine. They can live anywhere in the gut.They'll thrive anywhere. Especially if they
find a good sugar source or a nutrient sourceand a lack of opposing beneficial bacteria. Lots of gas and bloating is number one. Agood way obviously to treat that is to cut back immediately on the kind of foods thatcan promote gas and bloating, so sugars in your diet, fruits in your diet, take awayfood in your diet. In the Candida Crusher book, I talk about the sevenday inductiondiet before you actually start going into and get serious with the threestage CandidaCrusher diet will try to do what I call quot;warm turkey.quot; That's very appropriate coming outof Christmas to talk about the warm turkeys. Cold turkey is not that pleasant. Cold turkeymeans you stop things right away. Warm turkey
means that you have a sevenday period ofgrace before you cut the crap out of your diet, so just gently over a sevenday periodtake foods out. Swap over to a fresh, clean kind of a diet. That's what I call the quot;warmturkeyquot; approach and that immediately is going to help cut back on gas and bloating.What about if you have gas and bloating now and you've got a perfect diet? Well, you mightwant to take some digestive enzymes and some probiotics. I've created a product calledCanxida Restore, which is perfect for gas and bloating. So the Canxida Restore productyou can get at Canxida . You would take two or three of these per day and that's goingto help significantly with the gas and bloating
Candida Case Study 11 Jean WIth Serious Irritable Bowel Syndrome
This is another case history and this is quitea mindblowing case history. This is a 63yearold lady called Jean who I've seen. Jean is oneof these medical disasters. This is the Titanic of the lady's with irritable bowel syndrome.This was a disaster in the making and a disaster waiting to happen, and it's a terrible tragiccase. It should've been completely avoided. This woman is just another absolute, completebotch up of the medical profession. I'm not bagging all s because I've gota lot of medical s and specialist friends whom are fantastic people doing amazing jobs,but there are plenty of medical s out there that do terrible jobs. You always seegood and bad in all professions. I've seen
terrible naturopaths and good naturopaths.I've seen terrible chiropractors, so these case histories are not meant to be baggingsessions for medical practitioners. But this case here is one where everything went wrongfor this poor woman, and it basically ruined her life until we started to really set thingsright. I'm going to read a bit out of my book, as I usually do with some of these cases,and I'll do a narration along the way. Jean saw me a while ago now and came fromEngland to settle down in New Zealand. When this patient first came in, what struck mewas how thick her file of notes from London was. It was literally three inchesthick of notes. This patient had been suffering
with multiple digestive complaints for over40 years, including cramping, bloating, nausea, and continual diarrhea up to 10 bowel motionsper day. Her main problem was her increasing intolerance to foods, and Jean's diet hadbecome so incredibly restrictive that she could only eat a few foods, including chicken,fish, spinach and fresh green beans, and that was it. Most foods would set off terriblestomach pains she was experiencing, which caused her to eat less and less.Jean was one of those patients who ticked every condition box on my case taking form.She had headaches, insomnia, migraines, arthritis, anxiety, depression, urinary tract infections,and, in fact, Jean had everything. This patient
had been to over 25 s, several specialists,a bowel specialist, including herbalists, naturopaths, physiotherapists, osteopaths,and even more. The main concern was Jean's weight. It had dropped to less than 80 pounds,' kilos. And at 5 foot 6 inches in height, it's pretty bad. A woman that tall literallylooks like something that had come out of one of these concentration camps with herliberation. It was quite terrible to see a patient like that in my room because you couldsee the bones everywhere. And of course, what her bowel specialist in England said, he toldher that she needed to put on more weight, so he told her to eat more potato chips andmore chocolate to gain weight, which is why
he's a bowel specialist. More like an idiotas far as I'm concerned to tell someone with a bowel problem to eat lots of chocolate andcrisps. It's a stupid thing to do, isn't it? What tests were performed on Jean? Apart fromthe usual blood tests, this poor woman had over a dozen colonoscopies performed and eachtime all was normal. The last visit this patient had to the gastroenterologist, quot;Our findingsindicated that Mrs. X has no significant disease.quot; No other tests were ever performed. No stooltests. No allergy test, just bowel examinations and the odd endoscopy, so that's a cameradown the throat. A camera up the backside, a camera down the throat, they couldn't findanything.
What I do with cases like Jean. Whenever Isee these patients, I usually do a comprehensive digestive stool analysis times three. It'sthe best stool test you can do. And guess what we found? We found multiple issues ascan be expected. But in this particular case, we found a level three of Candida in all stoolsamples. This woman had three plus, which is a lot of yeast that could be cultured ineach stool sample. This is one of the worst bowel cases I've ever seen involving a yeastinfection. That was a significant finding for the patient, and the first time we hadanswers. The patient and her husband were absolutely delighted, but also equally annoyedthat it took 40 years to find the answers.
