What Causes Recurring Yeast Infections
I've got a question here on somebody. Whatcauses a recurring yeast infection? Recurring yeast infections are caused by probablya partial recognition of the problem and some treatment that's been effective to a degree,so you may know you've got this problem, you'll fix it up a little bit. It'll go away to adegree, but then it will recur; it will come back again, so I commonly see this with people,many different people, who are quite busy and active. They sort of want to get rid oftheir yeast infection, but don't invest the right amount of time or effort to really eradicateit properly. This is very common with working people, busypeople, with moms with a couple of children,
for example, or guys that are selfemployedor working quite hard, you know, have got jock itch, for example. These people are verybusy. They go about their life. They get symptoms. They treat the symptoms. The symptoms go away.They feel good for a while, and then their symptoms recur. The only way you're goingto prevent these recurring symptoms is by tackling this thing properly and by gettingon top of the problem or making the right lifestyle and diet changes long enough, usuallyfour to six months, consistently making these changes to eradicate this infection. Thenbeing vigilant, being very careful that you don't get recurrence while monitoring thiscondition. And then if the symptoms come up
slightly, is to knock them on the head reallyfast while making those changes again. I write about this a lot in my book, CandidaCrusher, that the big danger period for a lot of people is when they're actually inthe recovery phase. Many people have got a lot to learn about a full recovery becausepartial recovery with many chronic conditions is much more common than full recovery. I'dsay 75 percent of people partially recover. Partial recovery can be meaning as symptomfree for weeks to months, but full recovery means no symptoms for 12 months plus. There'sa big difference. Most websites and books and practitioners you see will pitch to youpartial recovery through their treatments
because they don't push you hard enough orgive the patient the right information they need to fully recover. What causes recurring yeast infections isa partial application of wanting to get well, not fully committing. It's almost like you'vegot a job and from eight to five, five days a week, but you turn up at the job three orfour times a week. You don't go five days a week. You're not really fully committedto that job. You're going to annoy a lot of people. You'll probably end up getting firedfrom that job. It's the same with a yeast infection. Somepeople say to me, Look, I will do everything
you say, but I'm not going to give up alcohol.Of course they're going to get recurrence. Or as soon as they get a cough or a cold,they go straight for the antibiotic. Bang! Recurrence. Or they're over at a wedding andthey're feeling really good. They've felt good for two or three months. They're at awedding, and they get offered some champagne, some nice cakes, and some candies and thingslike that, and then they really go into this. They binge on this. They come home and a daylater, Oh, I feel so bad. I've got bad bloating, or things like that. Recurrence. So Recurrence is more common if you've hada period of feeling really good, and then
you go all out and you go crazy and have abit of a binge on something, and then wham, the symptoms recur. It pays to be vigilantand to be careful with your diet and lifestyle for a good four to six months at a minimumbefore you start going back into some of your old habits that lead you to the yeast infectionin the first place. If you can bear some of those points in mind,you can prevent recurrence of Candida infections. I hope that answers some of your questions. Thank you.

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.
