Candida Causes Symptoms Treatment by Candida Expert
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.
Male Candida Symptoms How To Recognize The Male Candida Patient
Hi there. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of products. Thanks forchecking out my tutorial. We're back again. We're going to now have a look at men. How to recognizethe man with a yeast infection? Men are different from women as we all know. How do you knowthat a guy's got a yeast infection? Let me read something out of my book and then we'llexplain a bit. In my al practice, 75 percent of patientspresenting with yeast infection related problems are females. Yet guys develop yeast relatedproblems as well. In fact, I suspect there are a lot of men out there with a yeast infection,yet do very little about it to get well. They
may even pass the problem on to their femalecompanions and then they may get it passed back to them. Women tend to be more keen toget their health onboard than guys. I saw my father try to conquer his yeast problemsfor many years. And it was only after many years that he went from to whoprescribed drug after drug, finding nothing wrong with him. This was in spite of severaltrips to the gastroenterologist, where he was examined by way of an endoscope and hada barium enema performed in addition to having every other test thrown at him. The diagnosiswas there was no abnormal disease and dad was prescribed yet more antibiotics. Thatwas in 1982.
And unfortunately, almost 30 years on, nothinghas changed. Yeast infected patients are still diagnosed by the mainstream as havingno abnormal disease if they present to their medical with several yeast relatedsigns and symptoms. If you've been to many different people and they can't find what'swrong with you, if you suffer from bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, constipation anddiarrhea, if you've been on antibiotics. If you can relate to this, do a stool test orgo and see someone like me or anyone else who knows about Candida to get checked outbecause you may have this problem. How do we recognize a male patient with aCandida yeast infection? I carefully check
the toenails and see if there is any athlete'sfoot. It could be a fungal nail or there could be infection between the toes. I find thatmen, for some reason, are known to more commonly complain of athlete's foot than women do.I'll often check the hands and scalp carefully, too. Particularly, if they're manual workers.Guys, in general, tend to be less interested in hand and foot care than female patients.Shoes and socks off and we'll often find something if we have a good look.Guys who adjust their groin regularly, so men who move their things around a bit. Ifyou know what I mean. Just go to a bar and look around, especially where alcohol is served.Many men subconsciously touch their groin
area and I'll bet that they're either obliviousto the fact that they have a yeast infection or too embarrassed to seek treatment. Manyof the typical male patients I see are blue collar workers, so these are going to be guyswho drive trucks, work as building people, they do physical manual work. They're workingclass men who typically enjoy a beer or wine after work. A social drink at the weekendand they snack on sweet stuff. They may not have the best diet and when carefully questioned,you'll find they burp, bloat and fart, which is quite typical for a guy that drinks beerand has a yeast infection. White collar office workers, so these areguys that maybe earn a bit more money. These
guys also work under high stress especially.They work long hours at the office. Many of them often drink alcohol and they eat overcomputers. They might eat take away food or eat out commonly with their colleagues. Somespend time with clients and conduct business over lunch and dinner or at conventions andgo to business meetings and typically alcohol is served. They'll go out. They'll spend thenight out drinking again and partying. It's all quite common.Men with yeast infections are typically the ones who consume lots of beer, bread and sweetfoods. Those who crave alcohol in general are prime candidates for Candida. And if theydon't crave alcohol, they'll crave sweet things
