Candida Causes Symptoms Treatment by Candida Expert
Hello. It's Eric Bakker. Author of CandidaCrusher. Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to youa bit about Candida yeast infections. What is Candida? What are Candida yeast infections?Candida is a type of fungus. It's basically a type of yeast. It is quite common for theseyeast to appear and grow inside peoples' bodies, as well as on the surface of their body. Candidais commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract of people and also in the vaginal areaof women. It can also be found in the throat, mouth, and on the skin surfaces of people.It can become quite a problem when it becomes an invasive infection, and particularly inthose who have got a compromised immune system.
As I mentioned, it's a normally occurringyeast that inhabits the gastrointestinal tract of more than 90 percent of people. It's commonlykept in check by beneficial bacteria and other beneficial yeasts. It can migrate quite easilyfrom the vaginal area of women, from the rectal area into the vaginal area and cause vaginalthrush. This is quite a common occurrence with many women. The overgrowth can also affectmen, women, as well as children. This condition can underpin many different chronic illnesses.It's frequently misdiagnosed by many people in the health care profession. It's commonlymisdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome and even inflammatory bowel syndrome by lots ofpractitioners. One of the leading causes as
you're going to see in this presentation isantibiotics. Lowgrade stress, in particular, chronic ongoing stress is often one of thebig causes of a yeast infection. But so are diets that can be laden in sugar and yeasts.Here, you can actually see a picture of Candida, the particular form. You can see the littlebuds here that can break off and grow into new yeasts. Candida is quite an amazing organismwith how it can reproduce and spread through the body, and it can evade detection by theimmune system. It's very clever how it can mutate, change, grow, and evade destructionby the immune system. What are some of the main causes of a Candidayeast infection? Well, these are the main
11 causes, and you can also see another YouTubetutorial on this particular slide here. Antibiotic drugs are one of the leading causes of yeastinfection. Since the advent of antibiotics, there has been a very big increase in yeastinfections in people right across the board. Antibiotics in meat are quite incredible howmuch antibiotics are used in poultry, for example. Many thousands of kilograms of antibioticsare used every year in America and many countries across the world in the food chain, as wellas pharmaceutical drugs. Antibiotics found in foods are big causes of yeast infectionsbecause they kill beneficial bacteria and allow yeast to thrive.Underlying immune deficiencies. Some people
are actually born with immune weaknesses thatcan predispose them to a yeast infection. Steroid drugs or other pharmaceutical drugscan undermine a person's health and be a causative factor. Alcohol is a huge cause of yeast infections.Men who drink beer regularly and women or men who drink wine or beer can be particularlyprone to yeast infections. Particularly those who are under stress, taking antibiotics,consume reasonable amounts of alcohol. You don't have to be a big drinker to get a yeastinfection. But maintaining regular alcohol consumption along with sweet foods, breads,candies, chocolates, these things can all predispose you to a yeast infection. Candidafriendly diets are diets high in soda drinks,
ice cream, bagels, donuts, packaged cereals,jelly, or JellO; take away foods, all these sorts of diets can contribute to a Candidayeast infection. Stress can be a huge causative factor. Stressactually can cause a depletion of the hormone quot;cortisolquot; long term, and cortisol is a veryimportant steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland, which has a very powerful effecton creating a strong immune presence in the body. With chronic ongoing stress, we cancommonly find a person has an increased susceptibility to a yeast infection.Exposure to toxins, chemicals, heavy metals, mercury fillings has been linked with theliberation of methyl mercury in the mouth.
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
