On Antibiotics And Got A Yeast Infection

Do Antibiotics Cause Yeast Infections

Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath with anotherfrequently asked question. Do antibiotics cause yeast infections? This is a question that many people ask. Manypeople do take antibiotics, unfortunately, and in my opinion, antibiotic drugs are oneof the number one causes of chronic yeast infections. Particularly, the prolonged andinappropriate and excessive use of broad spectrum antibiotics. Antibiotics are prescribed on quite a largeand wide scale to kill diseasecausing bacteria, but unfortunately, they also kill healthy,normal, flora throughout the body and they

can actually encourage yeast infections inmany people. So antibiotics are implicated and, in my mind, would be one of the primecauses of yeast infections and recurring chronic yeast infections in many patients. One factor that many people don't realizeis did you know that most antibiotic drugs are actually themselves developed from chemicalsfound in fungi species. So fungi actually create certain chemicals which kill bacteriaaround them. So by using certain chemicals and creating drugs from them, we can effectivelykill bacteria yet allow the yeast to proliferate. So this is one reason why antibiotics areso effective at killing bacteria but allowing

their own species to thrive. So it's a littleknown fact. Another little known fact which you may notbe aware of is the use of antibiotics in commercial meat; poultry for example, chickens, and commercialchickens contain many different types of antibiotics. When you see how poultry are kept crammedin cages, it's not hard to see why they give them antibiotics to prevent diseases. So ifyou're eating commercial poultry, I recommend you go to Wikipedia and look up antibioticsin chicken or poultry. You might be quite surprised what you find. So, yes they are. They're certainly implicatedin the development and progression of a yeast

infection. In fact, William Cook wroteextensively about antibiotics in his book, The Yeast Infection. It's a good book andwell worth the read for you. So avoiding antibiotic drugs is one step inthe right direction if you want to avoid yeast infections and particularly if you want topermanently cure your yeast infection. In my book, Candida Crusher, I've writtenabout the 11 main causes of yeast infections, and antibiotic drugs, unfortunately, are ontop of the list. So I do hope that answers your question. Thank you.

Main Causes Of Yeast Infections

Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath and authorof Candida Crusher. Thanks for tuning into my tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you about the 11main causes of a yeast infection. The main things that I find that commonly underpina yeast infection when patients come to see me for consultation. To explain a bit more about the causes, itprobably would be good to explain that I find that there are two types of causes with people.What I call the exciting cause and what I call the maintaining cause. The exciting causeis what really starts off the yeast infection;

what begins it all. Because when you thinkabout it, something had to cause the whole problem. It had to start for some reason.You didn't just wake up one day and Oh, I got a yeast infection. It developed and somethinghelped it along. Something created this yeast infection. That's called the exciting cause.If you've had a yeast infection for many years, like a chronic one, it may be hard to rememberthe exciting cause. We'll come back to that later. The second cause is the maintaining cause.This is what you're doing continually to keep it going. This could be a food or a drinkor a lifestyle habit that's contributing to

this continuation of the yeast infection.It's important if I'm going to help you permanently eradicate a yeast infection that you addressboth the exciting and the maintaining causes. Let's talk a little bit about the 11 typesof causes which I commonly see in the . The first one is antibiotics drugs. Antibioticsprobably are the biggest cause of any yeast infection. And not just of yeast infections,but of many different diseases we have today. I think they're the scourge of pharmaceuticaldrugs. While so necessary in many cases, I believe they're completely overprescribedand given far too judiciously and handed out like candy to children. In fact, too manypeople get antibiotics for too many silly

reasons. I've been in my business now 25 yearsand I routinely get mothers coming in, they bring a child in who's had a script for penicillinfor seven days for a tiny little cut on the finger or something ridiculous like that;that tea tree oil could solve. If you're one of these people who routinelytakes antibiotics, you could be in for a rude awakening. You need to be careful of antibioticsbecause they certainly create a lot of problems in the body. We don't call them antibiosisor antilife for no reason. They kill life. They kill a lot of beneficial life. And ifyou keep taking these drugs, you'll find that bacteria and yeast will become increasinglyresistant to the effects of them. It'll be

harder and harder for you to counter thesebugs down the track. I've raised my four children on no antibioticsat all. They've never had antibiotics and they're in great health. We've always reliedon herbal medicines and homeopathies and other treatments, and we've had fantastic results.Then when the kids do get a sore throat or they get sick, we'll give them herbs. We'lldo salt water gargles; they'll quickly recover within two days. I've never resorted to thesedrugs and I don't think that you should jump into them in a hurry. I think you need tobe careful about what you're doing. Antibiotics are the prime cause of many yeast infections.I've seen thousands of people come to me who've

never been well since a prescription of anantibiotic. The second one is antibiotics in meat. Littledo you know that the pork you're eating or the chicken or the beef could well have drugsin it, antibiotics? We know the growth hormone is used in many animals, pork and beef particularly,to stimulate growth. But what you may not be aware of is chicken get loads of antibiotics.If you're buying commercial poultry, it'll be full of antibiotics. The poultry industrywill tell you that these drugs are safe, but I can tell you now, they're not safe at all.They cram these chickens into small cages, keep them in the dark, and feed them on highprotein foods. They spray antibiotic sprays
