What Is The Tongue Test For Candida
I'm going to talk about another home testtoday, which a lot of you might be familiar with. I call it the tongue test. So have a look at your tongue in the mirrorand have a look. It should be a nice pinkish color all around the front and the middleand the back and the sides. This indicates a good digestive system with healthy levelsof bacteria. So a tongue that's quite whitish coated andparticularly at the back of the tongue. If it's real yellow coating or a really darksort of white or brown color coating, it means usually a heavy amount of bad bacterial andfungal problems in the bowel, particularly
the lower part. So the more towards the frontof the tongue, the higher up the digestion. The more towards the back, the lower the digestion. In Chinese medicine they worked this out thousandsof years ago. The sides of the tongue represent the liver. The tip of the tongue representsthe stomach. The middle part of the tongue represents the small intestine. And the backof the tongue represents the colon or the large intestine. So a healthy tongue shouldbe pink. Look at a dog or a cat's tongue; they're generallypink. We don't have a lot of white coating on the tongue of a dog unless you're goingto feed it a lot of crap food. But adults
often have these white coatings because ofsugar in their diet, so sugar feeds up the bad bacterial and fungal problems and, hence,we get this dysbiosis occurring and we get this white coating. The white coating is agood indication on the level of intestinal overgrowth or bad bacterial and fungal infection. As you go through the Candida Crusher program,your tongue will get more pink and more pink and eventually a beautiful pink color justlike your dog. Keep an eye on that and do that test weeklyand then write that down in the column of the home symptom tracker that you'll findin my book. This is a very good test to do
in conjunction with the smell test, the itchtest, the spit test, the sound test, and all the other tests that I recommend. Check out my other YouTube clips on all theseother home tests and you should really do them all once a week. This will give you avery good indication on your level of Candida in the privacy of your own home and no costat all, so definitely worth doing in that case. Thanks for tuning in.
How Do You Know If You Have Candida Overgrowth Infection
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker from New Zealand.I'm a naturopath. I'm an author of a book called Candida Crusher and also the formulatorof the range dietary supplements called Canxida. Thanks for tuning in. I've got a questionhere today from a lady in Colorado, USA. Taylor Humphrey from Colorado, USA. Taylor is wantingto know, â€œHow do I know if I have a Candida overgrowth infection?â€�Taylor, let's explain that in some detail in this tutorial today. I'm going to read a littlebit of information from my book, Candida Crusher, and I'll explain a little bit as I go along.This is a very common question I get and I think I've answered it in other tutorials andarticles that you can find at yeastinfection .
How do I know if I have a Candida yeast infection?Let's have a look at that in some detail now. Chapter 3 in my book is quite an extensivechapter and contains a huge compilation of all the common signs and symptoms of a Candidayeast infection and all the less common signs and symptoms. It's often been stated by manyexperts in medicine that many people exhibit signs and symptoms of Candida yeast infections.But how do you know that you've got one? Would it be through sinusitis? Would it be throughitchy skin? How do you know if you've got a Candida yeast infection?There are many ways you can pick that. Sometimes an inexperienced will overlook thesevague symptoms and treat the patient for something
other than a yeast infection. I know thisall too well after helping many patients with Candida for almost 30 years now that havevisited other practitioners who were diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, constipation,diarrhea, parasites, food allergies, leaky gut syndrome, gall stones, inflammatory boweldisease, and many other complaints. Some of these patients were desperate to gethelp and had become disillusioned about treatment and wondered if they would ever get well.Some of these cases have proven to be very difficult to deal with and is it any wonder?If you were told that you have no diagnosable health problem, but you knew yourself forcertain that you did. If you had been to several
s with little success and, in addition,tried selfhelp, but improved only little as a result, than you've probably been disillusioned,too. I can still remember how I felt when I hada serious Candida infection in the 1980s. No one to turn to. Not being taken seriouslyby any s, family, or friends, and mainly because there was no clearcut diagnosis.That's why this chapter is particularly important because it really outlines also the testingof Candida, which we'll go into a little bit in a minute.Spot the Candida patient. There is a box here on this page. When a patient comes into mypractice with a very restricted or limited
diet and multiple digestive complaints, complainingof many food allergies and sensitivities, there is a big chance that they will havea major problem with intestinal dysbiosis or SIBO, including various strains of badbacteria, yeast, and possibly parasites. Some of these patients have visited many practitioners.Others will have spent many hours online with Google and can often tell you exactlywhat is wrong with them, but all you need to do is listen to them.Why am I confident in assuming that they have digestive issues and Candida? Because of comprehensivestool testing, which we'll explain a bit in a minute. And if you look in the right places,you can usually find what you're looking for.
These are the patients that may have a bagor two full of dietary supplements, including products like digestive enzymes, parasitecleanse, immune boosters, bowel products, bowel cleansers, detox product, you name it.Products like constipation and diarrhea aids, glutamine, aloe vera, you name it, probiotics,and they've taken everything these people. Is this you looking at this tutorial right now?Or maybe you're a looking at this right now. In today's internet age, the patientwill tell you that he or she has been doing some research online with the help of Google and can relate to having yeast infection issues. Let's go over a few signs and symptomsin a minute.
