Can Betaine HCL Treat Candida Yeast Infections
Greetings. Naturopath Eric Bakker from NewZealand. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of products. I've gota question here from Claudevia Sameen from Kiev, Ukraine. Claudivia is asking me, quot;CanBetaine HCL treat Candida?quot; So betaine hydrochloride. Betaine is really a supplement; trimethylglycineis a supplement that we use for improving stomach acidity. It's commonly thought thatmany people who get reflux disease and heartburn have over acid production and, in fact, manyhave under acid production. It's a very common assumption that heartburn is caused by overacidity and it's spawned a whole huge industry, particularly in North America in the UnitedStates. It's almost a $10 billion US dollar
industry with one drug called Nexium alonenetting over $6 billion last year. Stomach acid is very important. It's a veryimportant part of good health for people. A very important part. And when we start blockingstomach acid with medications, we create a huge amount of problem with people. I've doneanother tutorial on Nexium that you can watch, and that explains a little bit more aboutthe different kinds of medications, the acid blockers, we've got different kinds, two differenttypes we use, and their effect on human health. A study has found that over 70 percent ofpeople who take these acidblocking medications have got, in fact, a yeast infection. By increasingstomach acidity rather than decreasing it,
we're going to have a good effect on improvingnot just the stomach function in general, but we're also going to prevent the body fromgaining the ability to get these infections. So you're more prone to getting a yeast infectionor small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, what we call SIBO, if you've got a higherpH of the stomach, so a more alkaline stomach rather than a more acidforming stomach.A good way to take betaine hydrochloride, Jonathan Wright in the States, very famous years ago recommended people start with 300 to 500 mg of betaine HCL as a supplement.Take it with a meal one capsule and then with each succeeding meal, increase by one doseuntil you reach your what we call quot;tummy tolerance.quot;
If you start feeling a bit of reflux or heartburnbehind the sternum here, you back off and you work under that threshold. I've had somepatients honestly take 20 or 30 of these capsules a day until they reach their stomach's aciditylevel. And then over a period of a week or two, they had to back off and use lower andlower dosages. This is called the quot;tummy tolerancequot; method and it works quite well for a lot ofpeople. If you've quite serious heartburn, you could try a little bit of betaine, a littlebit of lemon juice or cider vinegar may help, too, or a bit of betaine. If you've got Candida,make sure that you take a digestive enzyme that contains a bit of betaine.Check out my products called Canxida Restore.
That's got digestive enzymes in it, alongwith some probiotics. Probiotics, in fact, improve the upper level of the stomach's health,and antibiotics are linked, in fact, with people taking these acid blocking medications.Because what we found is that when many people take an antibiotic, they, in fact, destroythe beneficial flora in the stomach. And yes, there are beneficial bacteria there, too,and right throughout the digestive tract. This, in turn, can create reflux disease andproblems requiring a drug like Zantac or Tagamet or Prevacid or Nexium, one of those drugs.So if you require one of these drugs, have you taken an antibiotic in the past? Maybeyou just need to take a good probiotic enzyme
formula to build that health back up again.That's a bit of a longwinded reply there for Claudivia in Kiev, Ukraine. I hope thatanswers your question Claudivia. Don't forget to do my online quiz at yeastinfection to determine what kind of level of severity of Candida you've got. Thanks for tuning in.
How to Build Your Hydrochloric Acid
Alright FitLifer, Drew Canole here with ChristaOrekio, once again thank you so much, my pleasure, just helping people all over the world. Ah,in tutorial number one we talked about how to tell if you have Candida, right? We did sixdays of spitting in a glass to see if we have it. And then tutorial number two we did a selfpH test and we also talked about how significant pH is in your body in giving you more vitality,more energy and decreasing your chances of getting something like cancer. So pay attentionto this tutorial cause at the end of this tutorial, Christa's actually going to be giving yousomething that's really really important and can really benefit your life regardless ofwhether or not you have Candida or not. So
stay tuned at the end of this tutorial, we'regoing to be going over that and we just wanted to say thank you to all of the submissionsthat we received from people that actually submitted their tutorials to response to tutorialnumber one in your Candida spit test, congratulations! We knew that it took a lot out of you, we'reexcited to get some of those cookbooks, out to you as well. And today we're talking aboutbuilding hydrochloric acid. There's this process of digestive health, we'll find out if youhave Candida or any bad critters in your digestive system and eliminate it and then you haveto repair the wreath in its way, and that is building stomach acid and this is a reallyimportant tutorial especially for anybody who's
over fifty because after the age of fiftywe produce less and less hydrochloric acid every year, so we're going to make a magicrecipe that builds hydrochloric acid. So what's in the recipe? Well, we have some lemons here,for this particular recipe we're using one lemon, just one, and we have about three knucklesof ginger, like this, already peeled. Alright? Yes you got to get your carrot shaver outand peel it. Yup so we got the carrot shaver out, we peeled the ginger, you did a remarkablejob I might say, that peeling the ginger. Thank you. Now, so we're going to picklethe ginger. Now why are we using ginger for this? Oaky, so what we're making with allthis noise is called a ginger pickle and comes
from Ayurveda which is a 5,000 year old Indianmedical system, and so we're going to take this ginger and we then add the juice of afull lemon. So first of all this food, cause we talked about pH grounds, the two most alkalineforming foods that you can consume. Alright. So we added about a half of teaspoon, justregular sea salt. So you guys would make that and just keep that in a jar in the fridgeand then when you're having meals with two of your biggest meals of the day, I just wantyou to take about half a teaspoon. So this is the recipe, that's the recipe. Can I tryit? You allow it to pickle in the fridge, about half a teaspoon, and then you chew itreally well. You want to mix all of that
together, you don't have to swallow it ifyou don't like the fiber of ginger, you can spit it out. So this simple, simple recipecan be your way back to health so that you are now producing hydrochloric acid and youcan offset neurological disorder from having enough B12, you can prevent and reverse memorydecline through having enough vitamin B12 and you can prevent your body from gettingbad bugs because hydrochloric acid if you eat any bugs kills the bad bugs. So the gingerpickle is where it's at. And I absolutely love this recipe, I think it's so easy todo every single morning before every meal, like you had mentioned to do that, it's somethingthat anyone can do, you don't have to take
any powders, pills or potions, different thingsto do it, you can make it with ginger that's what Mother Earth intended it to be. So ifyou have done the Candida test and you are one of the 65 percent of people that has thischronic infection you've been living with and you haven't known, look into getting ridof it, look into getting rid of mental fog and depression and digestive issues. If youtake thyroid meds, look into doing this so you can heal your thyroid and you can livea healthier, happier life and slash your lifetime chances of colon cancer by 75 percent. Soby getting rid of this, it's going to allow you to become more than what you are rightnow, I'm convince to that which is exactly
