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
I Have Little White Bumps On My Penis Could This Be A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another question. I have little painless white bumps on my penis.Could this be a yeast infection? It most probably is. A good thing to do ifyou're uncircumcised is to roll the foreskin back and have a look. If it's intensely itchyin particular, and small white bumps, it could well be a yeast infection. If in doubt, getchecked out. That's my saying. So go and see your and get a swab and get the areachecked and to see if the can culture any yeast. If Candida albicans can be culturedfrom this swab, then it most certainly is a yeast infection. But you could be dealingwith any one of different types of conditions.
But itchiness, irritability to that area,small white bumps, generally will signify a yeast infection. A good home treatment would be to give ita good wash with tea tree oil soap and to keep it dry and clean. And to take precautionswith sexual relations, use condoms of course, until you really know what you're dealingwith. So to answer that question, would these littlewhite bumps on the penis be a yeast infection? They probably are, but get checked out justto be sure. And if you're told they are yeast infection, always consider internal treatmentas well as external treatment.
You can read a lot more in the fourth chapterin my book, Candida Crusher, if you're a male particularly with what to do with these typesof infections. They'll give you lots of different solutions and ideas, so do read that chapterin my book. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
