Can My Man Give Me A Yeast Infection
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another guy question. Can my man give me a yeast infection? He can. It's absolutely possible and particularlymen who are uncircumcised because if they roll the foreskin back, you see a white sortof skin irritation under hear. This could well be yeast. So a good advice if a maleis in doubt is to go to this and get that particular white sort of covering aroundpenis there and get it checked out and swabbed to see if the can culture yeast offthis. It's a very common place for a guy to have a yeast infection, so a good thing fora male to do is observe good hygiene and roll
the foreskin back and wash this area verycarefully and thoroughly. It's quite common. So a man can pass his infection to a partner,and this in turn can be passed back to him. So observe good hygiene. Tea tree oil is anexcellent product, good antifungal to use. And tea tree oil soap is what I recommendto males to wash the genital region thoroughly with and his groin. A yeast infection can be around the rectalarea, inner thighs, scrotum, penis; this whole area can be affected. And some guys are affectedhorrendously with this condition. It's a terrible thing to have. It can last for years and drivea guy absolutely crazy.
So yes, a man can give you a yeast infection.So make sure that your man gets on top of his infection. Chapter 3 in my book will explainhow he can rid of his male yeast infection. I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
Case Study 20 Eric Bakker Chronic Candida Yeast Infection
I'm going to do another case history, andthis is going to be my case history. It's going to be quite different. This is a 25yearoldguy called Eric Bakker. In 1986, he was just turning 26. So this is my own personal story.You might like to hear my personal story on how I came to really develop a burning passionfor helping people like you out there with Candida.You may like to hear my own personal story about the yeast infection I used to have whenI was in my 20s. I used to live by myself in a small house in a place called Brisbanein Australia, and this little house was in a suburb that was prone to flooding. It wascheap rent, and I was working in a flourmill
at the time. I'd been living on my own forabout five years at that point. One week I would work the day shift. One week I'd workthe afternoon shift. And the following week, I would work the night shift.I started to feel increasingly stressed and tired and one winter developed a bad cough.It got worse to the point where I took an antibiotic. My little house was cold and damp,and I had to bail water out of my bedroom after it rained heavily. I did tell you itwas cheap rent. The walls were covered in a thin, moist film that I later discoveredwas mold. My diet wasn't the best at times. I was craving sweet foods, take out, and lotsof bread. Either my bowels were blocked or
I was experiencing diarrhea and lots of gas.I felt terrible, and my health was going downhill fast. My skin started to get itchy and I developeda bad case of athlete's foot and jock itch. To give you a background on all this, a fewyears prior, I had 13 amalgam fillings replaced over a period of two weeks in 1983. I startedto notice that my health was beginning to deteriorate and by early '85, I was feelingincreasingly anxious. I developed skin rashes, athlete's foot, and many manifestations ofa Candida yeast infection, all unbeknown to me at the time, including very strong sweetcravings. I had issues with my girlfriend who thoughtI was a hypochondriac because my health had
deteriorated to the point where I had to seekmedical help. But the was of little help because all the tests results came backnormal, and he wanted me to see a psychiatrist. I knew I wasn't going crazy. I knew that therewas something undermining my health, and I couldn't put a finger on it until I read theYeast Connection by William Crook and then later I read the Missing Diagnosis by Orion Truss. I've read about 50 books since then on Candida, but the first one byCrook was quite a good book. My girlfriend at the time started to doubtme and told me that my problems were all in my head. A view strongly supported by hermother and that I needed to wake up to myself.
See a shrink and take antidepressants. Idecided to end that unsupportive relationship and move out of their flat and had a garagesale a few weekends later to downsize. A naturopath was looking through some of my gear at a garagesale and asked me why I had dark circles under my eyes. I told her about my health and thefirst thing she told me was to get a hair analysis to determine the mercury levels becauseshe thought the mercury fillings being replaced, it could have caused a problem. And she saidthere may be a connection there with that and the Candida.I went to see her and showed her Crook's book, and what she said made a heck of a lotof sense. And I started getting treatment
for my yeast infection. Unfortunately, shedidn't walk me through a proper mercury detoxification, I felt very, very sick, and I had a bad Herxheimerreaction. I had a lot of vomiting and diarrhea for quite a few weeks. And this, in fact,was one of the lowest points in my life. When at one point, I had considered taking my ownlife because I was so unsupported. No one wanted to listen to me. I felt terrible. The told me I was nuts. My mother said I was crazy. My girlfriend didn't listen.Is it any wonder people jump off bridges or do crazy things? If no one is there to listento you at all, all the doors get closed in your face. There's no support at all. What'sthe point in living even? When you're at your
