Intestinal Candida And Constipation

Candida Case Study 3 Trudy Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I'm going to do another case presentation.This will be case presentation number three. This is out of my book, Candida Crusher. I'mjust going to read an excerpt out of that. This patient's name is Trudy, and she's 62years of age. Let's start. If you're a health care professional, this will be a typicalcase that you will see. You'll recognize a lot in this case.Trudy came to see me not that long ago complaining of irritable bowel syndrome. She'd had ongoingconstipation and diarrhea for over 10 years. Too many to remember she told me. Trudy hadbeen treated for irritable bowel syndrome by every practitioner she'd seen and was neverconsidered to be a person to have a serious

Candida yeast infection. Because she toldthem all that is what the medical had diagnosed her with several years ago, IBS,so of course, once she was labeled as an IBS patient, irritable bowel syndrome is whatit was and that's what all the practitioners basically treated her for. Monkey see; monkeydo. I've heard it all before. I call it parrot talk. If you keep parroting the same thing,people start copying that. And even many natural practitioners and even some top professionalsshe saw treated her for IBS, so they looked at various IBS diets. The SED diet, the GAPSdiet, the Paleo diet, you name it; she's been on every kind of diet this woman.I've written here, they were the natural practitioners

who had placed her on strict exclusion dietsand the allergy diets, and the had treated her several times with antibioticsbefore he washed his hands of her and placed her in the quot;too hardquot; basket. The bowel specialistconcluded there was nothing the matter with Trudy after all the standard investigationslike colonoscopy, endoscopy, abdominal xrays, and countless blood tests all came back asbeing normal. I've heard it all before. I've written here also, whenever I teach studentsabout digestive problems, I say, quot;If the health professional diagnosed IBS or if you can'tfind the reason for the patient's digestive malfunction, suspect an immune problem underpinningit, usually there's Candida not far behind

or dysbiosis, bad bacteria, parasites. Youcould find Blastocystis in there and Dientamoeba. There could be any one of a number of differentbugs underpinning that that no one has really diagnosed.quot;Trudy mentioned that she had an itchy scalp. And on close inspection, I noticed that bothher big toenails were thickened and discolored. We completed a stool test and there it was,yeast in all three stool samples. But not only yeast, she had also several other bacteriaand parasites present, which is typical of a chronic ongoing yeast case like this. Theopportunity exists for such a proliferation of dysbiosis; hence the term quot;opportunisticinfection.quot; Trudy had a stool test completed

years ago, but was only tested for basic pathogenslike giardia campylobacter, pampas pyridium and rotavirus, and nothing really came up.Many s, if they do a stool test, a convention would do a very narrow test. When Ido them, I tend to do a broad test, so I look at a whole range of different things.This lady used to work in a daycare center, so she was only really checked for children'sinfectious bowel diseases, so they basically missed the boat. All results were negativeand Trudy left with no answers. Of course, if all the professionals come back with NAD,nominal at diagnosis, the patient develops increasing anxiety. They start getting mooddisorders. They start drinking more. Swallowing

all kinds of antidepressants and they justgo from bad to worse. One of my biggest disgusts with conventionaltreatment of digestive complaints is the routinely overzealous prescribing of antibiotics. I'veseen this with thousands of patients over the years where antibiotics just destroy people'sguts. They just get sicker and sicker, to the point where the s wash their handsof these patients. They just get rid of them. Discard them for what I call a quot;low hangingfruit.quot; They look for other patients they can make money out of or give more drugs tobecause what can they do? You make someone sick enough, you can't treat them anymore,just get rid of them because there's plenty
