Wont A Vaginal Swab Be Sufficient To Detect My Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, another question here. Here's a question from Susie in Tennessee. Would a vaginal swab be sufficient to detect my yeast infection That's a good question, Susie, and one I get asked every now and then from different patients. Women are often used to going to a doctor for a vaginal swab to determine the presence of a yeast infection to make sure it's a bacterial infection or a yeast infection. I just want to know what kind of infection I've got. So it's important to remember, though, that a.
Swab does not differentiate between a Candida infection and a vaginal colony of normally occurring vaginal Candida. The cotton swab is sampling the surface of the vaginal wall, and it won't tell you if your immune system is actually involved or if it's been producing antibodies against the Candida itself. The test will only indicate what's going on locally and not systemically. Another problem with a vaginal sampling is that if you're using a pessary or been douching the area or it's been sanitized to a degree, then it might return a false reading you.
May not get a positive response and that could really throw you out and then you really won't know what's going on there. You didn't think about those points, did you I'll bet you didn't. This catches quite a few people out, so you need to be careful about interpreting Candida tests, including vaginal swabs. So the results could be negative the results could be positive, so how do you really know what's going on there Don't make any false assumptions there. And a vaginal swab doesn't necessarily always determine the presence of a yeast infection for that reason. You.
May want to think carefully about having that douche or that pessary just prior to getting the vaginal sampling done. That's a good point there. So look at the totality of your symptoms as well to see what other kind of problems do you have Like fatigue, digestive problems, gas, bloating, sugar cravings, these things could also alert you toward a yeast infection. Be particularly careful there. I hope this answers your question. There are a lot more questions and a lot more answers you'll find on my YouTube channel, so be sure to have a look. And if the question is not there, go to candidacrusher and.
What Are The Consequences Of A Chronic Yeast Infection When Left Untreated
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, FAQ. This one's from a lady in France, in some small place in France. It looks like a French name. The question here is Eric, what are the consequences of a longterm chronic yeast infection if left untreated I may have done a tutorial on this before. I'm not sure. But the consequences of any condition left untreated are not usually that good. This is going to allow all sorts of disease processes to take place. So if you look at a yeast infection, for example, if left untreated, a yeast infection could.
Turn out to be a chronic problem, which can lead to all sorts of longterm complications. Just like any infection of the genital tract, it needs prompt attention and it needs a resolution. It's important first to diagnose what you're dealing with, and after what you know what you're dealing with, treat it and get it over and done with. Any condition in the body left to become chronic is asking for a lot of problems. You know, they say that yeast infections are selflimiting, but even the experts can't agree whether a yeast infection of the female area is going to lead to infertility or conditions.
Like endometriosis. We don't really know. A lot of people are divided over that. But in my clinical experience, I've certainly seen it be the link between infertility, endometriosis and chronic yeast infections, which are basically just treated time and again, only to resurface. And it's the same with the male. If a male get a penis yeast infection or a genital condition, it would pay to treat this condition because, again, it could lead to all sorts of complications. And I've certainly seen chronic prostatitis linked with male yeast infections.
Intestinal yeast infections can lead to all sorts of complications for the gut. Liver disorders, diabetes, many different conditions can come about from this. It can be very debilitating and cause you a lot of discomfort, pain and cost you a lot of money down the track in medical bills and time off work. So it would pay for you to treat any chronic condition promptly rather than waiting for it to get out of hand and become very chronic. Yeast infections can often go from the digestive tract into the system itself, into the circulation.
There's certainly studies which agree that this can take place. I wrote up one of these particular studies in my book of an American gentleman who swallowed some capsules of Candida albicans and within only a few hours, it could be cultured from his bloodstream and produced from the urine. So we know that yeast infections can spread from the GI tract into the circulation itself quite rapidly, even under the right conditions. So Candida is generally held in strict control in the body in accordance with the microbial balance which is occurring in the GI tract. But if Candida is given the upper hand through.
Antibiotics or the pill or high stress, high sugar diets, for example, it can go rampant and become quite a severe major condition which certainly needs treatment. So my recommendation for you is if you've got a chronic infection is certainly get onto it today rather than tomorrow and do something about it, so it doesn't become a condition which is unmanageable even by the very best clinician. Any condition is best treated right now and nipped in the bud before it gets out of hand and becomes chronic. So I hope that answers the question there about the consequences of longterm chronic.
Can My Man Give Me A Yeast Infection
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher with another guy question. Can my man give me a yeast infection He can. It's absolutely possible and particularly men who are uncircumcised because if they roll the foreskin back, you see a white sort of skin irritation under hear. This could well be yeast. So a good advice if a male is in doubt is to go to this doctor and get that particular white sort of covering around penis there and get it checked out and swabbed to see if the doctor can culture yeast off this. It's a very common place for a guy to.
Have a yeast infection, so a good thing for a male to do is observe good hygiene and roll the foreskin back and wash this area very carefully and thoroughly. It's quite common. So a man can pass his infection to a partner, and this in turn can be passed back to him. So observe good hygiene. Tea tree oil is an excellent product, good antifungal to use. And tea tree oil soap is what I recommend to males to wash the genital region thoroughly with and his groin. A yeast infection can be around the rectal area, inner thighs, scrotum, penis this whole.
Does Yeast Infection Cause Anal Itching
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath and author of Candida Crusher with another question I get asked from time to time. Does yeast infection cause anal itching Very much so this is a key symptom and a symptom I see quite a lot in males and females. In Chapter 3 in my book, you can read an extensive amount of signs and symptoms about yeast infection the gastrointestinal symptoms, the urinary symptoms, the mental emotional symptoms, the muscular skeletal symptoms, the immune symptoms, how to recognize yeast infections in men, women, and children in great detail, and a key symptom is anal itching. However, you.
May also find anal itching to be related to pinworm or other parasites. So if you've got symptoms of bloating, gas, sugar cravings, I'm going to start thinking about yeast infection. There are many other tutorials you'll find on YouTube about where I'm going to go into this particular symptom in great detail. This is a real problem for a lot of people. I've had people from all over the world approach me with this particular symptom. And in other tutorials, I'll explain exactly how to deal with this particular symptom. All right, I've got some great hints and tips.
How Do I Get Rid Of My Yeast Infection Permanently
Hi, there. Eric, how do I get rid of my yeast infection permanently There are many ways that you can get rid of a yeast infection. But if you're very keen to get rid of it permanently, there are a couple of things I'd like you to consider. One would be to have a look at the causes of your yeast infection. Were you taking medications like antibiotics, the pill, or hormone replacement therapy I even ask men if they're taking steroids. Are you a person living a high stress lifestyle Are you a person who's eating the.
Wrong kind of foods, sugary foods, drinking sodas, having McDonalds or KFC or takeout foods all the time Are you a shift worker Are you a person living in marital stress Do you have a lot of business responsibilities or money worries Teenage problems The list goes on and on. The point I'm looking at here is stresses. What kind of stresses are you living under Lifestyle factors are usually unaccounted for in permanent recovery. So you'll need to make some permanent changes if you want a permanent result. Your diet.
Will need changing. Your lifestyle will need changing. You'll need to keep on keeping on until you get well and you stay well. It is possible to permanently recover from a yeast infection, but it's something that you need to work at. Your practitioner can guide you, but you're the one who has to really do the work. So don't come knocking on the door of the doctor and say, You didn't cure me. I didn't get well. You gave me the wrong medication. You're not a good naturopath. Look at yourself. Look at what you're doing. Become selfresponsible.
In the seventh chapter of my book, in section five, I talk about lifestyle and about selfaccountability. These are the things I'd like you to look at. And once you start taking that wheel in your own hands and steer your life in the right direction, you're going to get a permanent result. Any more questions Please go and have a look at my YouTube channel and you'll certainly find the answer to your question there. If you can't find it, contact me on Candidacrusher and I'll answer your question for you. Subscribe to my channel, please, and you'll be the first.
I Have Little White Bumps On My Penis Could This Be A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher with another question. I have little painless white bumps on my penis. Could this be a yeast infection It most probably is. A good thing to do if you're uncircumcised is to roll the foreskin back and have a look. If it's intensely itchy in particular, and small white bumps, it could well be a yeast infection. If in doubt, get checked out. That's my saying. So go and see your doctor and get a swab and get the area checked and to see if the doctor can culture.
Any yeast. If Candida albicans can be cultured from this swab, then it most certainly is a yeast infection. But you could be dealing with any one of different types of conditions. But itchiness, irritability to that area, small white bumps, generally will signify a yeast infection. A good home treatment would be to give it a good wash with tea tree oil soap and to keep it dry and clean. And to take precautions with sexual relations, use condoms of course, until you really know what you're dealing with. So to answer that question, would these little white bumps on the penis be a yeast infection.
What Is A Vaginal Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker back to you again. FAQ No. 5 this time. This person also wishes to remain anonymous. These are typical emails I get on a regular basis. What is a vaginal yeast infection I have a discharge. Could this be a vaginal yeast infection Well, in my book I explain in Chapter 5 in detail the difference between the different types of vaginal irritations and conditions that can affect that part of the female anatomy. That's suffice it to say this area is a perfect breeding ground for a yeast infection. It.
Is warm. It is moist. It is dark and it also has varying levels of secretions in there depending on the hormone level of the female at any given time. So, it's very common for females to have a yeast infection at some stage of their life, and most women, in fact, will at some time in their life have a yeast infection. Generally, these are selflimiting and not a problem. It's only when they become chronic and recurring that there is something further that needs looking into, and for this reason,.
I recommend that you have a proper diagnosis to establish whether you have bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. In fact, BV or bacterial vaginosis is more common than yeast infection. It involves bacteria and not fungus and is a frothy, fish briny smell, whereas the vaginal Candida albicans will have a more cheesy discharge and have a moldy musky sort of smell. So, if it's chronic and recurring, do get yourself checked out and have a good look at my book because there is extensive information in Candida Crusher on how to overcome a chronic.
How Do I Kill Candida
Hi there. Here's a question from Gerald. Gerald lives in Brisbane, Australia. Gerald is asking me a question. Eric, how do I kill Candida Gerald wants to know how to kill Candida. Well, in my book, I mention again and again. I'm really not interested in killing Candida. Killing is really something that the Armed Forces do. Killing never really wins anything. And killing Candida is not really the way to go. I see many people put posts on various forums about wanting to kill and eradicate things almost like they're the Taliban or some type terrorist that they've got to wipe out with.
Bombs and guns and things like that. The problem with those situations when you're looking at killing is things are going to come back stronger and harder, and you're going to create a lot of what I call friendly fire. You're going to wipe out friendly bacteria. If all you're thinking about is killing and eradicating, you're going to create a lot of other problems as well. This is how conventional medicine got itself into a mess in the first place with these antitype therapies antibiotics which means antilife. Think about inhibiting.
Candida and reducing the population because you'll never really eradicate yeast from the body. You want to inhibit them and keep them under control and tame them. You'll never get rid of criminals on this world. You can, however, make them better people. You can't do that with all of them, but some of them can be rehabilitated. In the case of Candida, we want to basically get them under control, so we're looking at inhibition, okay And a good way to do that is by looking at things like oregano, garlic,.
Caprylic acid, selenic acid, there are many different things that we can use that help to reduce the population of yeast. But when you start talking about killing or eradicating, it's not really something I'm interested in doing. Many people have got Candida albicans normally residing in their digestive system, so we really want to get a balance between the good and the bad. That's what we're interested in doing. There will be a lot of other tutorials that will go into this topic in particular. If you're interested in knowing more, please look at my other tutorials on my YouTube channel, subscribe.
