How To Test For Candida Yeast Infection

Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusher.Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I'd like to talk to you a littlebit about testing for Candida yeast infections. Many patients who come to see me want to knowwhether they have an infection or not. They go to their or they go to their naturopathand they're told that they've got all these problems, but then they reply, What are theseproblems? Can we do a test for these problems? What are they? So the medical willhave a few tests that he or she may perform, but not many patients with Candida yeast infectionsare really tested when they go to their medical . If the suspects a vaginal yeastinfection or thrush, then he or she may perform

a test, a smear test, to determine that, andthat will be sent away and those cells will be checked out. They'll be cultured. They'llgo to a special lab to see whether it's bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. But generally, a won't test any furtherthan that in terms of digestive problems or inflammation or brain fog or any of the othersubtle signs and symptoms of a yeast infection. The patient may be given a digestive product,maybe an acid blocker. They may be given a sleeping pill or an antiinflammatory, butI don't usually find that medical s will test any further than perhaps doing avaginal check. Or maybe in some cases with

a male, they may do a skin scraping of a particulararea and then get that checked. The issue I have with the medical test to determineyeast infections and many other health conditions are that they are defined more by statisticalnorms rather than physiological norms. By that, I mean they really work on a slidingscale from say 1 to 10. If you come back as 1.5 in the bottom end of that reference rangeor 9.5, you're deemed to be perfectly normal. In natural medicine, we don't really lookat it like that. We look more at the physiological norm. We're going to be more interested toget you around four, five, or six, which will be more of a midpoint, which we deem to bea really good range for you to be in. That's

one concern I have is looking at these norms. The other concern I have, really, with themedical testing is if a test comes back positive, it will often lead to the prescription ofa pharmaceutical drug. And in many cases, it will be an antibiotic or antifungal; itwill be an quot;antiquot; type of a drug, which will only create further problems. And if the can diagnose you with any particular test, then he or she may even think that you'vegot depression or anxiety and send you to a psychiatrist. And that's what happened tome. I was told to go to a psychiatrist when Ihad Candida because my problems were all in

my head. Well, they were in my head partiallybecause I had brain fog, but what the didn't know is I had a lot of digestive problemsthat he really should have gone further in looking at. And for that reason, now I doa lot of stool testing, comprehensive digestive stool testing. You're going to see a lot moretutorials on stool testing. I'll explain to you a lot more about the markers and what theymean, and how to interpret this very, very important test. In my book, Candida Crusher, I call the comprehensivestool test the quot;Rolls Roycequot; of tests because you can determine a whole bunch of stuff fromthis test. You can look at digestive markers,

inflammatory markers, and immune markers.It goes on and on and on; there's a whole lot of information that we can acquire fromthis test, which can give us a very accurate indication of the health of your whole digestivesystem. It also shows me where to pinpoint the treatment. It gives me a good idea onthe severity of your condition and how long it's going to take to get well. There are various tests that the andthe naturopath will perform to determine a yeast infection. As I mentioned, the may perform a smear test to determine whether it's vaginal thrush or vaginosis or an STDof some form. A may perform a stool
