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.
How Do You Know If You Have Candida Overgrowth Infection
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker from New Zealand.I'm a naturopath. I'm an author of a book called Candida Crusher and also the formulatorof the range dietary supplements called Canxida. Thanks for tuning in. I've got a questionhere today from a lady in Colorado, USA. Taylor Humphrey from Colorado, USA. Taylor is wantingto know, â€œHow do I know if I have a Candida overgrowth infection?â€�Taylor, let's explain that in some detail in this tutorial today. I'm going to read a littlebit of information from my book, Candida Crusher, and I'll explain a little bit as I go along.This is a very common question I get and I think I've answered it in other tutorials andarticles that you can find at yeastinfection .
How do I know if I have a Candida yeast infection?Let's have a look at that in some detail now. Chapter 3 in my book is quite an extensivechapter and contains a huge compilation of all the common signs and symptoms of a Candidayeast infection and all the less common signs and symptoms. It's often been stated by manyexperts in medicine that many people exhibit signs and symptoms of Candida yeast infections.But how do you know that you've got one? Would it be through sinusitis? Would it be throughitchy skin? How do you know if you've got a Candida yeast infection?There are many ways you can pick that. Sometimes an inexperienced will overlook thesevague symptoms and treat the patient for something
other than a yeast infection. I know thisall too well after helping many patients with Candida for almost 30 years now that havevisited other practitioners who were diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, constipation,diarrhea, parasites, food allergies, leaky gut syndrome, gall stones, inflammatory boweldisease, and many other complaints. Some of these patients were desperate to gethelp and had become disillusioned about treatment and wondered if they would ever get well.Some of these cases have proven to be very difficult to deal with and is it any wonder?If you were told that you have no diagnosable health problem, but you knew yourself forcertain that you did. If you had been to several
s with little success and, in addition,tried selfhelp, but improved only little as a result, than you've probably been disillusioned,too. I can still remember how I felt when I hada serious Candida infection in the 1980s. No one to turn to. Not being taken seriouslyby any s, family, or friends, and mainly because there was no clearcut diagnosis.That's why this chapter is particularly important because it really outlines also the testingof Candida, which we'll go into a little bit in a minute.Spot the Candida patient. There is a box here on this page. When a patient comes into mypractice with a very restricted or limited
diet and multiple digestive complaints, complainingof many food allergies and sensitivities, there is a big chance that they will havea major problem with intestinal dysbiosis or SIBO, including various strains of badbacteria, yeast, and possibly parasites. Some of these patients have visited many practitioners.Others will have spent many hours online with Google and can often tell you exactlywhat is wrong with them, but all you need to do is listen to them.Why am I confident in assuming that they have digestive issues and Candida? Because of comprehensivestool testing, which we'll explain a bit in a minute. And if you look in the right places,you can usually find what you're looking for.
These are the patients that may have a bagor two full of dietary supplements, including products like digestive enzymes, parasitecleanse, immune boosters, bowel products, bowel cleansers, detox product, you name it.Products like constipation and diarrhea aids, glutamine, aloe vera, you name it, probiotics,and they've taken everything these people. Is this you looking at this tutorial right now?Or maybe you're a looking at this right now. In today's internet age, the patientwill tell you that he or she has been doing some research online with the help of Google and can relate to having yeast infection issues. Let's go over a few signs and symptomsin a minute.
