Test For Candida Antibodies

Male Yeast Infection Need internal And External Treatment

First of all, I'd like to thank the many menwho have purchased my book, Candida Crusher, in the past 12 months. This has shown manymen also suffer from yeast infections that are interested in looking at a resolutionand also clearly shows me that yeast infection is not a women's problem like many practitionersunfortunately think it is. Many men suffer from yeast infection of theprivate areas of the inner thigh, of the scrotum or in the rectal area, and also around thepenis, the glans penis. All those areas can drive a guy crazy when they become infectedwith Candida Albicans. I've seen many hundreds of men come to mecomplaining of these symptoms. Some of them

have got mild problems and, in fact, somepatients are pretty desperate and even suicidal because they've been sent from one to another and given some vaginal cream or some stupid treatment, which generallydon't resolve anything at all. If you're a guy watching this now and havegot a men's yeast infection, I can help you. I've helped many men, so you'll find a lotmore in Chapter 4 in my book on some quick solutions and also yeastinfection hasgot some good ideas on it. So what are you going to do if you've gota yeast infection and you're a guy? You just going to use Vagisil or something like that?Don't laugh, but this is something that many

men have told me that's been recommended tothem by their general practitioner. It's quite a stupid treatment. Yeast infection requires internal treatmentas well as external treatment. It's very important you tackle this area on a couple of differentfronts if you want to get a good resolution. Internal treatment, I mean you need to cutout alcohol for some time. So if you're a guy watching this now and you've got a yeastinfection of the penis or the rectal area driving you crazy, it's itchy, and you'redrinking beer or wine or spirits and you think you can cure it with some cream, well, you'rewasting your time. You need to make some changes.

You really need to make some changes to yourdiet and lifestyle long term to stop feeding this yeast infection, to reduce the food supply. It's very important that you consider thispoint that 'm making here. I've seen all too many people who just consider it an externalproblem that needs a cream. So you can read more of my writings on ericbakker as wellregarding diet and lifestyle. You need to need make changes. So what kind of changesdo you need to make? What I think is one of the better diet approachesfor the guy is the MEVY diet, so meat, eggs, vegetables, and yogurt. So a kind of Paleoapproach is going to work well, but I don't

want you just eating a whole bunch of meat,barbeques and foods like that and ribs. You need to have plenty of vegetable matter aswell, green leafy vegetables. The fermented and cultured foods are important,too, to put good bacteria back into the body, so good quality yogurt and kefir is also good.Kefir is quite an important food to eat to put lots of beneficial bacteria there. Changeof pH of the gut. But probably by far the biggest one for males is cutting out alcoholfor some time. I'll tell you now, guys, if this problem is really driving you crazy,and you are really at your wit's end and want to get rid of this problem, you need to listenup. You need to make those changes because

treating this thing purely on the externalis a waste of time. Okay. It really is a waste of time. You can cure this thing completely.I had really bad jock itch in my 20s to the point where it drove me nuts. I was itchingand scratching the skin. It was bleeding. Having a shower or going swimming was justa nightmare. It was pain. It stopped me from wanting to have relationships. I got verydepressed over the whole thing, so if this is you right now, I've been where you are. You can cure this thing completely, right?But you need to make those changes for at least three to six months, and you need todo the external treatment. And you can read

What Is The Candida Immune Complexes Test And Do You Recommend It

Hi there. I'm Eric Bakker. I'm a naturopathfrom New Zealand and I'm the author of a book called Candida Crusher and formulator of therange called Canxida. Thanks for tuning into the tutorial today. Today, I've got a questionhere from a patient, quot;What is the Candida immune complex test? Does it work and do yourecommend this test?quot; I've often said it before. You can get paralysis from analysis. In mymind, after working with Candida patients for a long, long time, one of the best teststo do is the stool test, not the immune complex test.The immune test, there are various ways you can do this. You can get little home kits.You can check the blood itself. You can check

the saliva. And we're checking for differentkinds of antibodies. These are often what we called ELISA tests or enzyme linked immunosorbentassay tests. But we're checking for different kinds of antibodies. We've got IgA, IgG, IgE,so these are basically immunoglobulins. Some are immediate markers, some are delayed markers,and some are going to represent the more immediate presence of Candida in the blood or in thesaliva. Others are going to be maybe a past or a delayed reaction to a Candida organism.I find these tests to be quite particular and very inaccurate in many situations, soI don't usually recommend this kind of testing for people. I think a stool test is a waybetter test because it gives you a lot more

information that's not just relevant to Candida,but also to SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, that so commonly is there in associationwith a yeast infection with patients. Stool testing is far more comprehensive and a muchmore accurate way to determine what level of gut dysfunction the patient really has.And as naturopaths, our core focus is on improving the gut with people, and that test is reallythe best test you can do. The comprehensive stool analysis is the best test.Stool testing also will be a culture. A good test will actually culture for yeast and lookat doing microscopy, so looking through a microscope, and looking for visual signs ofyeast bloom in the stool. Microscopy and stool

culture. It's a way more accurate, more balancedway to determine Candida. I want you to remember that Candida and alot of bacteria don't like hanging around in the bloodstream for too long because thereare a lot of white blood cells that hang around there that tend to really jump on them straightaway. And also, the chemicals or cytokines that are produced by blood cells tend to attackCandida and also the metabolites of Candida, when it dies, what it's broken down to, andthe converted form of Candida to the more invasive or spore form. So the blood is anarea where a lot of toxins don't last long, including heavy metals, a lot of poisons,carbamates and pesticides and organochlorines

and these sort of sprays. They don't lastlong in the bloodstream. They get tucked away into organs. They get tucked away into bonemarrow or different parts of the body that form more long term stores for these kindof poisons, bacteria and viruses and things like that. Blood is very hit and miss testing.Even the serum can be hit and miss testing. The plasma component of blood.Urine is more a reflection of a more acute problem rather than a longterm chronic problem.Stool is a way better way to gauge the overall health of the patient. As I mentioned, notjust for Candida, but their overall health. Because the gut health is a reflection ofthe overall health of the person. Checking

a few antibodies here or there, to me, istoo narrow in its approach for testing. And it can also be inaccurate.What does all this mean? What am I trying to tell you? I'm trying to tell you don'twaste your money on a Candida immune complex test. I don't do it. I used to do it. I don'tdo it anymore. It's a waste of money. Spend your money on a comprehensive stool test.SDSA times three. Spend money on one really good test upfront if you've got a chronicproblem, and don't waste your money in the interim on all these tests along the way.I gauge a patient's ability to contract a yeast infection more on their exposure toantibiotics than anything. So if you come

How To Diagnose and Test for Helicobacter Pylori

Hello, back again. It's Eric Bakker, New Zealandnaturopath. I'm going to continue on with my series on helicobacter pylori. We're goingto talk about how to test and diagnose helicobacter pylori in this tutorial. There are basicallythree ways you can test for H. pylori, probably four ways I think, but I think probably oneof the most accurate ones is the UBT or the urea breath test. It's very interesting. Youbasically have to stop for about 14 days prior to doing this test. You've got to stop antibiotics.You've got to stop any bismuth containing preparations like Pepto Bismol. You've gotto stop any proton pump inhibitors, PPIs, any medications that block stomach acid. Youstop all that kind of stuff for 14 days. Then

you swallow a small amount of substance containingthis stuff called urea. Urea is quite harmless because the body actuallymakes urea when it breaks protein down. What happens is if you've got any HP present inthe stomach, they will convert the urea quite rapidly to carbon dioxide. Because you remember,they convert this and then a gas gets produced and it's a byproduct as well. The urea getsconverted by urease, an enzyme that this bacterium has, that convert the urease to alkaline substancesto allow it to live. They convert it to bicarbonate and to ammonia and that's what allows it tolive in the mucous of the environment that's acidic. But the breath can be measured aftera period of time for carbon dioxide. If the

carbon dioxide markedly goes up, they knowyou've definitely got helicobacter. I like this test because it's very quick to determineif you've got it. But most places, you can't get this test done anymore. It's incredible.They used to offer it here in New Zealand all the time. But all of a sudden, it's justnot available. The blood test is only effective in termsof measuring the antibodies. Helicobacter when it's present in the body, the immunesystem will attack it and produce antibodies. These antibodies can flow around in the bloodstreamfor a long, long, long time. Even for years after, so there is no way of accurately measuringif you've got a current infection by doing

serum antigen test.The fecal test is a little bit more accurate in that it can determine if the treatmenthas been successful by showing a positive or negative. I'll often do both of those testswith patients. But I can tell you now, I've got very little faith in testing for helicobacter.I can't recall how many times I've had a patient where I was absolutely sure. I had a gut feeling,pardon the pun, a gut feeling that they had this infection. I got the testing done andit came back negative and then I treated the patient and they got a result. This hasn'thappened once or twice. I would say over a hundred times, maybe two hundred times, thishas happened where the treatment was a success,

but the test was an abysmal failure. I liketo have a positive test as a confirmation, but I don't really rely on testing anymorefor treatment of helicobacter. I just treat. Unfortunately, medical s can't do that.They have to diagnose before they can treat and I believe in many cases, this is quitea dumb thing to do. The that taught me quite a lot of al skills regardingnatural medicine a long, long time ago said, quot;When you get experience, it's best to treatrather than to analyze every single thing and then treat after the analysis. If it'sgoing to do no harm to the patient, you might as well just treat and see what the outcomeis.quot; A lot of al experiences are based

on what happens in the . So if you recurrentlyfind that patients who improve significantly even if the test result was negative, I don'treally care. I don't really care, to be honest. If the patient gets a favorable outcome, that'swhat I care about. Don't dismay if the tests come back negative for you.SIBO testing is another test you can do to determine small intestinal bacterial overgrowthand I believe it may also be partially effective for helicobacter. But as I mentioned in aprevious tutorial, in my opinion, there are many other bacteria that live in the stomach andthe duodenum and other areas of your gut that have not yet really been detected as such.And I believe that people can develop many
