Can You Have Eczema And Candida At The Same Time
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements. Thankyou, again, for checking out my tutorial. I've got an email here from a lady called JuneTickell. June is from Florida and June has a 12yearold son with eczema and she wondersif he has Candida as well, so she's asking me if eczema and Candida can be together,cohabitate in a person. Can a person have both of these conditions?They can. I'm going to do quite a lot of tutorials this year, hopefully, on eczema and also onpsoriasis and explain these different kinds of presentations in the . Eczema isquite a different skin presentation from psoriasis
and dermatitis. Many people get these skinconditions confused. In fact, a lot of s get confused. They don't even know the differencesome of them between psoriasis and eczema or dermatitis and psoriasis.Eczema basically is an immune problem where a person is going to have an issue with certainkinds of foods causing an inflammatory response. It generally involved leaky gut syndrome.As the person matures, usually by the time they get to about between 12 to 14, maybe15, the immune system tends to settle down. Some white blood cells can take many, manyyears, 10, 12, even 14 years to fully mature. Younger children tend to have more of a problemwith eczema than older children, but some
adults can still get it.Eczema can be inherited or acquired, but generally, you will find there is a strong element ofhereditary there with eczema. We often talk about atopy. Atopy is a condition where aperson will pick up the gene from one or both of the parents and it can be quite bad ifit's from both. So if dad, for example, had hay fever and mom had asthma and eczema, thechild has got a 75 percent chance of picking up eczema, quite a bad case of eczema andwill probably have multiple food allergies there. And I also find sometimes eczema canbe acquired as well through serious antibiotic use when the child was quite young. They candevelop it.
Eczema is not uncommon. We get a lot of ithere in New Zealand and I put it down to a huge amount of dairy consumption because thecow is king here in New Zealand and lots and lots of people still drink way too much cow'smilk. I don't think cow's milk is a great food in general. I've never been a fan ofpeople drinking cow's milk. I do like a bit of whipped cream, though, with my strawberriesat Christmas time and I do like a little piece of cheese here or there. I think mozzarellacheese is quite nice. But to drink glasses of cow's milk is not a good idea.June, the first question I ask you. Does your son drink cow's milk because that's the firstthing that I take out of the diet when I know
someone has got eczema? Eczema is really allabout getting the gut right, restoring that leaky gut membrane. I certainly have seenCandida and eczema together in many different cases and it's very important for your sonto get his digestive system right and to take that allergenic food out. In fact, it's thesecond phase of my Candida Crusher approach. The first phase I put patients on. I put themon the MEVY, meat, eggs, vegetables and yogurt. And the second phase is the low allergy diet.You'll say, quot;Hang on a minute. You're telling people to have yogurt, but isn't that a dairyproduct?quot; Yes, it is. But it is a cultured dairy product and a really good quality yogurtwill have a large amount of beneficial bacteria
in there. The lactose will be consumed bythe lactobacillus. There will still be beta casein in there, which is a dairy proteinthat could upregulate the immune response, but generally, I don't find that a problemwith most people with eczema. And I'm not talking about the Yoplait or those yogurtswith artificial sugars like aspartame or chunks of fruit or tons of sugar in there. Look atthe packet of yogurt, if it says quot;sugarquot; ditch it. Don't touch it. Yogurt should be a fresh,raw sour yogurt without any sugar added to it at all. There is a big difference betweenthat kind of yogurt and the crap you get in the supermarket.With eczema, it's all about taking the allergenic
Case 23 Jeremy Asthma Eczema And Candida
Thanks for tuning in. Doing another case today.Case number 23. This is going to be a guy called Jeremy. A 26yearold guy called Jeremy.Jeremy is not his real name. I tend to disguise patient's names and ages. They're very realcases. I see plenty of patients. Here are some of my case notes from patients from lastweek. So I do protect my patients' privacy, and I'm very much into privacy and confidentiality.We'll just call this guy Jeremy, a 26yearold guy. Jeremy, in fact, has presented with quitea lot of different problems. Jeremy's coming with asthma, eczema and badCandida, a bad yeast infection. Jeremy has had a lot of problems growing up with eczemaand asthma as a child and was put on lots
of different antibiotics for throat and earinfections, and as a young child, went onto all kinds of different medications for asthma.Steroid inhalers, preventatives. Also, Salbutamol or Ventolin.I've had many patients placed on these drugs. I've seen them many years. Eventually, theirairways become dependent on these drugs to allow them to breathe properly. They developa lot of anxiety around asthma, particularly the bad asthmatics. And of course, they havemultiple food allergies. They end up with infections, so they take lots of antibiotics.They get sick. And of course, then they get yeast infections. It's just one big mess.It's a big filthy drug spiral.
This poor guy, he's actually a health careprofessional. He's also drinking quite a substantial amount of alcohol. I've got a food allergytest here for Jeremy. I've just covered up the top, so you can't really see any detailsof the patient. You can actually see there all the lines going right out there in thequot;yellowquot; zone. This a US Biotech food allergy report, and all those lines signify quitea lot of food allergies. Dairy allergies. We've got egg allergies. We've got citrusallergies. If we look on the other side, it's just as bad here. Look at all the grain andlegume allergies this guy's got. It's incredible. You can see massive amounts of allergies there.If we go to the other side here, you've got
a huge big garlic allergy there.When patients become dependent on medications, and particularly, if they drink booze on topof antibiotics and pharmaceutical drugs, they get a lot of leaky gut. They get a lot ofpermeability of the small intestine, which makes them very reactive to foods. The firstaim of Jeremy is to make him understand that the alcohol is only wrecking him. If he can'treally give up the booze for a while so we can repair the leaky gut, we're wasting ourtime. Your clear indication here of this guy withmassive grain allergies. Have a look at this. You can see here all the allergies towardall the different grains. You'd be quick to
assume that he's got gluten problems. Thathe needs to go on these paleo kind of diets away from all grains like a lot of peoplebelieve. But this guy's drinking spirits all the time. He's drinking beer all the time.He's taking antibiotics. He really needs to get off these kinds of medications and thiskind of lifestyle if he wants to repair the gut. That's going to help his immune system.You'd have to be crazy to continue this kind of lifestyle.That's my main focus with Jeremy is to do that. And of course, to work on the yeastinfection, so he's been looking at my book. We've put him on the Canxida Remove, the antifungalproduct I developed. We're already getting
some early indications of the turnaround ofthis case. I'll repeat the food allergy report, probably, in six months and have a look atthe gut function to see what kind of allergens are still present. But I suspect they'll bea lot less than there are today. What you can take from this case is that ifyou have been diagnosed with asthma, eczema, you're taking antihistamines, all those drugs,you're drinking booze, you're taking antibiotics, you need to make changes if you want to improveyour immune function. Particularly, you need to improve your gut function. That's the corething I want you to get out of this. With improved gut function comes improved immunefunction. You don't have to avoid gluten,
