Hi there, Eric Bakker, author of Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into this YouTube tutorial today. Today, I’d like to talk to you a little bit about testing for Candida yeast infections. Many patients who come to see me want to know whether they have an infection or not. They go to their or they go to their naturopath and they’re told that they’ve got all these problems, but then they reply, What are these problems? Can we do a test for these problems? What are they? So the medical will have a few tests that he or she may perform, but not many patients with Candida yeast infections are really tested when they go to their medical . If the suspects a vaginal yeast infection or thrush, then he or she may perform.
A test, a smear test, to determine that, and that will be sent away and those cells will be checked out. They’ll be cultured. They’ll go to a special lab to see whether it’s bacterial vaginosis or a yeast infection. But generally, a won’t test any further than that in terms of digestive problems or inflammation or brain fog or any of the other subtle signs and symptoms of a yeast infection. The patient may be given a digestive product, maybe an acid blocker. They may be given a sleeping pill or an antiinflammatory, but I don’t usually find that medical s will test any further than perhaps doing a vaginal check. Or maybe in some cases with.
A male, they may do a skin scraping of a particular area and then get that checked. The issue I have with the medical test to determine yeast infections and many other health conditions are that they are defined more by statistical norms rather than physiological norms. By that, I mean they really work on a sliding scale from say 1 to 10. If you come back as 1.5 in the bottom end of that reference range or 9.5, you’re deemed to be perfectly normal. In natural medicine, we don’t really look at it like that. We look more at the physiological norm. We’re going to be more interested to get you around four, five, or six, which will be more of a midpoint, which we deem to be a really good range for you to be in. That’s.
One concern I have is looking at these norms. The other concern I have, really, with the medical testing is if a test comes back positive, it will often lead to the prescription of a pharmaceutical drug. And in many cases, it will be an antibiotic or antifungal; it will be an quot;antiquot; type of a drug, which will only create further problems. And if the can diagnose you with any particular test, then he or she may even think that you’ve got depression or anxiety and send you to a psychiatrist. And that’s what happened to me. I was told to go to a psychiatrist when I had Candida because my problems were all in.
My head. Well, they were in my head partially because I had brain fog, but what the didn’t know is I had a lot of digestive problems that he really should have gone further in looking at. And for that reason, now I do a lot of stool testing, comprehensive digestive stool testing. You’re going to see a lot more tutorials on stool testing. I’ll explain to you a lot more about the markers and what they mean, and how to interpret this very, very important test. In my book, Candida Crusher, I call the comprehensive stool test the quot;Rolls Roycequot; of tests because you can determine a whole bunch of stuff from this test. You can look at digestive markers,.
Inflammatory markers, and immune markers. It goes on and on and on; there’s a whole lot of information that we can acquire from this test, which can give us a very accurate indication of the health of your whole digestive system. It also shows me where to pinpoint the treatment. It gives me a good idea on the severity of your condition and how long it’s going to take to get well. There are various tests that the and the naturopath will perform to determine a yeast infection. As I mentioned, the may perform a smear test to determine whether it’s vaginal thrush or vaginosis or an STD of some form. A may perform a stool.
Test on the odd patient to determine whether it is a parasite, but they generally are not really going to be interested in looking at the Candida through the stool like naturopaths are. Some s perform blood alcohol tests. Particularly in Japan and Asian countries, these tests are performed probably more so than in America. This will actually determine your alcohol level, aldehyde level in the blood. You can be given a particular substance to take and then the blood will be tested to determine if there’s a BAC or blood alcohol concentration. And in Japan, severe Candida is actually called quot;drunk disease.quot; Some people can actually appear quite drunk when they have severe Candidiasis.
Top causes of bleeding during the pregnancy of women Pregnancy complications of pregnant women
Top 5 Causes Of bleeding during pregnancy It’s not always possible to determine the reason behind prenatal spotting or bleeding. Here are some of the most common causes. Number 1. Sex. More blood flows to your cervix during pregnancy, so it’s not unusual to notice spotting after intercourse. A cervical polyp (a benign growth on the cervix) can also cause spotting or bleeding after sex. Number 2. Pap smear or internal exam. You may have spotting after you’ve had a Pap smear or internal exam for the same reasons â€“ greater blood flow to the cervix or a cervical polyp.
Number 3. Miscarriage. Because miscarriage is most common during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it tends to be one of the biggest concerns with first trimester bleeding. About half of women who bleed in pregnancy eventually miscarry, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that if you’re bleeding you’ve lost the baby, especially if you don’t have any other symptoms. Number 4. Infection. Any infection of the cervix, vagina, or a sexually transmitted infection (such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, or herpes) can cause bleeding in the first trimester.
Number 5. Cervical changes. During pregnancy, extra blood flows to the cervix. Intercourse or a Pap test, which cause contact with the cervix, can trigger bleeding. This type of bleeding isn’t cause for concern.
