How Do I know If I Have Chronic Candida
Greetings. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of Canxida, the Candida dietary supplementsof choice. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I've got lots of questions here from peopleall over the world, many different countries. Thank you for sending me these questions,and thank you for the awesome comments I've received on my YouTube Candida Crusher channel.It's very inspiring. It's for people like you that I make these tutorials. People thatare looking for some real answers. Not a lot of bologna and garbage that I've been readingon the internet, but I'm going to give you a lot of common sense and good ideas on howyou can really get rid of these Candida yeast
infections.Here's a question I got from a guy in California a couple of days ago. Eric, how do I knowI have chronic Candida? Well, Jeff, let me tell you. There are manyways you can find out if you've got chronic Candida, but you'll know you've got chronicCandida by the awful, terrible, crappy quality of life that you've got. You'll know you'vegot chronic Candida when you've been to 10 different s, 5 different naturopaths,4 different chiropractors, and 2 psychiatrists; God knows whom else you've gone to and hadno answers. You know you've got chronic Candida when you've been told it's all in your headand there's nothing wrong with you; that you
need to get a hold of your life and just geton with things. These are the things that I was told whenI had chronic Candida in my 20s. I was told I needed to see a psychiatrist, that I wasnuts, that there was nothing wrong with me. In fact, my told me that I couldn'thave Candida because I wasn't a woman and only women got vaginal yeast infections thathe considered to be chronic Candida. The sad thing is there are lot of misconceptions regardingchronic yeast infections, and many people still even today believe it just simply doesn'texist. When you've got chronic Candida, you usuallyhave some kind of a digestive problem, not
always, but usually. And this will generallyinvolve some unresolved issue that's been going on for weeks, months or even years.And it can be something simple like bloating or gas. It could be constipation or diarrhea.I just had a Face Time session with a 47yearold woman who has had chronic Candida. She's 47.She's had chronic Candida for about 25 years. She's got a bowel motion every four days.She has seriously bad sugar cravings and loves chocolate. She's got a vaginal yeast infection.She's got toenail fungus. She's had all these kinds of problems, she's been to so many s,and nobody has really helped her. As I mentioned, chronic Candida will ofteninvolve a gut problem of some kind. Unexplained
food allergies or sensitivities to many differentkinds of foods is something I routinely see in people. People who tend to have very selectivediets or people who hop from one diet to another. They might be on the GAPS diet, then the FOGMAPdiet, then the Body Ecology diet, then on this diet, then on that diet. People who tendto stop gluten because they think that's the problem. People who tend to go vegan. Peoplewho tend to go Paleo. All these people that go on these crazy, wacky, ridiculous dietapproaches because they're not feeling good. These are often the Candida cases.Chronic Candida will generally involve immune dysfunction, leaky gut; I very commonly seeit. And when you get leaky gut, it means that
your digestive system has become a lot morepermeable. And if you throw sugar on top of the equation, you're going to find peoplewill start complaining of things like feeling tired, fatigued, spaced out, brain fog, lackingthe brain power, memory, cognitive dysfunction, sleeping disorders, mood disorders, anxiety,depression, tiredness, all of these things are signs and symptoms of chronic Candida.A typical one I see with chronic Candida is tiredness, fatigue. Some s will sayto you when you go and visit them with a chronic yeast infection, quot;Get out of my room. Everybodytells me that they are tired. I don't care if you're tired. I want to treat sick people,not tired people.quot; I've heard that before.
Male Candida Symptoms How To Recognize The Male Candida Patient
Hi there. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. Thanks forchecking out my tutorial. We're back again. We're going to now have a look at men. How to recognizethe man with a yeast infection? Men are different from women as we all know. How do you knowthat a guy's got a yeast infection? Let me read something out of my book and then we'llexplain a bit. In my al practice, 75 percent of patientspresenting with yeast infection related problems are females. Yet guys develop yeast relatedproblems as well. In fact, I suspect there are a lot of men out there with a yeast infection,yet do very little about it to get well. They
may even pass the problem on to their femalecompanions and then they may get it passed back to them. Women tend to be more keen toget their health onboard than guys. I saw my father try to conquer his yeast problemsfor many years. And it was only after many years that he went from to whoprescribed drug after drug, finding nothing wrong with him. This was in spite of severaltrips to the gastroenterologist, where he was examined by way of an endoscope and hada barium enema performed in addition to having every other test thrown at him. The diagnosiswas there was no abnormal disease and dad was prescribed yet more antibiotics. Thatwas in 1982.
And unfortunately, almost 30 years on, nothinghas changed. Yeast infected patients are still diagnosed by the mainstream as havingno abnormal disease if they present to their medical with several yeast relatedsigns and symptoms. If you've been to many different people and they can't find what'swrong with you, if you suffer from bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, constipation anddiarrhea, if you've been on antibiotics. If you can relate to this, do a stool test orgo and see someone like me or anyone else who knows about Candida to get checked outbecause you may have this problem. How do we recognize a male patient with aCandida yeast infection? I carefully check
the toenails and see if there is any athlete'sfoot. It could be a fungal nail or there could be infection between the toes. I find thatmen, for some reason, are known to more commonly complain of athlete's foot than women do.I'll often check the hands and scalp carefully, too. Particularly, if they're manual workers.Guys, in general, tend to be less interested in hand and foot care than female patients.Shoes and socks off and we'll often find something if we have a good look.Guys who adjust their groin regularly, so men who move their things around a bit. Ifyou know what I mean. Just go to a bar and look around, especially where alcohol is served.Many men subconsciously touch their groin
area and I'll bet that they're either obliviousto the fact that they have a yeast infection or too embarrassed to seek treatment. Manyof the typical male patients I see are blue collar workers, so these are going to be guyswho drive trucks, work as building people, they do physical manual work. They're workingclass men who typically enjoy a beer or wine after work. A social drink at the weekendand they snack on sweet stuff. They may not have the best diet and when carefully questioned,you'll find they burp, bloat and fart, which is quite typical for a guy that drinks beerand has a yeast infection. White collar office workers, so these areguys that maybe earn a bit more money. These
guys also work under high stress especially.They work long hours at the office. Many of them often drink alcohol and they eat overcomputers. They might eat take away food or eat out commonly with their colleagues. Somespend time with clients and conduct business over lunch and dinner or at conventions andgo to business meetings and typically alcohol is served. They'll go out. They'll spend thenight out drinking again and partying. It's all quite common.Men with yeast infections are typically the ones who consume lots of beer, bread and sweetfoods. Those who crave alcohol in general are prime candidates for Candida. And if theydon't crave alcohol, they'll crave sweet things
