The Natural Treatment Of Urethritis
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator ofthe Canxida range of products. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. I have a request here from a lady called Nataliein Sweden. Natalie is quite a remarkable lady who setup a Facebook page for people with Candida yeast infections, but also all different kindsof problems and health issues related to Candida. Natalie has asked me, quot;Eric, can you pleasetalk about urethritis?quot;
Urethritis belongs to a category of problemscalled urinary tract infections. There are different kinds of UTIs or urinarytract infections. Urethritis relates more to an inflammationof the urethra, which is a conduit for the little tube that runs from the bladder tothe outside of the body. We've also other conditions of that. We've got cystitis, which is really the bladderinfection or the reservoir of the urine to which the urethra is attached to. They move on out to the body toward the urethra.
We've got prostatitis that males can get. We've got pyelonephritis, which is a kidneyinflammation. A person will get fevers and chills and painin the back like being kicked in the back by a horse or something like that. Urethritis is actually quite a common conditionand it can affect men and women both equally. It can affect young people and old people. There are different reasons why these particulartype of age groups will get it. Let's go into that a little bit.
Men can be quite prone to urethritis evenif they've got a longer urethra, they can certainly be prone to it. They tend to have a thinner mucous membranelining the urethra than women do who tend to have a shorter and thicker one. Women tend to have urethritis particularlyas they older. Much more prone due to estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen has a very big effect on maintainingthe integrity of the urinary tract. Older women can be much more prone to urinarytract infections than younger women.
I feel because they have these big problemswith estrogen and progesterone. It may pay to get your hormones checked outand maybe balanced or fixed up if you are certainly an older type of person. With the younger ones, most cases of urethritis,I find, is after having intimate relations or after sex. It's important to go straight to the bathroomto urinate after that. Make sure that the hygiene is very good. If you get this infection, try to find outwhat it is.
Is it a Candida problem? Is it a bacterial problem? Is it virus? What's causing the actual infection. s will routinely give antibiotics, whichis crazy. Because if you don't know what you're doingyour just given antibiotics routinely. You could be causing a big problem for yourselfand destroying a lot of normal flora while not even affecting the bug that's causingthe problem in the first place.
Are Your Supplements Making Your Candida WORSE
Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker, authorof Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my tutorial. Today, we're going to talk about dietary supplements. Some dietary supplements can make you feela lot worse. It's surprising how many patients I have seen,particularly this year, that are taking supplements with all sorts of junk in them. These supplements are purchased basicallythrough Amazon or iHerb or big channels like
that or even through conventional stores. Be very careful because a lot of the cheapbottom end crappy stuff actually contain maltodextrin, which is a kind of sugar. They can also put glucose in there. There are different types of sugars that youwill find in dietary supplements. They can really help to contribute to causingthe Candida flare. Of course, when you take this supplement,you're going to get a reaction and you think quot;Ha, it's die off.
It's die off. The supplement's working. I've feeling worse. I'm feeling like crap. I'll just take more. It's getting even worse, the side effect. I've gone from two to four per day and I'mfeeling twice as bad. Well, this must be a good thing because I'mfeeling worse.
I'll just take more.quot; Next thing, you're taking five or six andyou've got to stop because you've got a bad belly ache and bloating, gas. You're got diarrhea and you're feeling likecrap. You think, quot;Ah, thank god the supplement'sworking.quot; Then you read the description box, the supplementfacts box, and you find it contains something like maltodextrin or a glucose or dextrinor a weird name that you don't have a clue of.
And then you think to yourself, quot;I wonderwhat this is? Oh, well, it must be some kind of nutrientthat I need.quot; Be really careful because many supplementson the market, in fact, are not made by reputable people. They're made by people that are just tryingto make money. They're made by people who don't care aboutthe end user. They're made with the cheapest possible rawmaterials with the sole aim designed to drive profits through who people who make.
Don't touch these products. Be very careful. This is not a tutorial aimed at driving or pushingpeople away from supplements to my supplements. I don't really care what kind of supplementsyou take. I just want you to think if you're going totake something, it's going to be made by somebody or designed by somebody who understands dietarysupplements, who understands what happens when the person takes them who doesn't wantto create any untold reactions with people, who only wants to use the finest possibleraw materials.
