Are Black Walnut and Coptis Enough For Complete Candida Cleanse?

August 22, 2019

Hi, there, Eric Bakker. Thanks for coming back to the channel. We’re talking today about parasites, about
Candida, about bacteria, about the same things that we often talk about. I’ve got a lot of questions here to go through. Here’s a question from a subscriber wanted
to know if a Candida cleanse is fine just by using black walnut and Coptis chinensis,
or what we call goldthread. These two herbs are commonly used by a lot
of people for a whole wide range of different purposes. Black walnut is a beautiful tree. There are many different types of walnut. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a walnut
tree growing, but when those pods drop they can create a real big, black mess on the ground,
this dark kind of stuff. If you get it on your clothes, on your hands,
it can stain. This stuff’s called juglone. Juglone is a kind of chemical that’s sometimes
used to stain clothes, or stain leather, or stain different things. Black walnut also contains a lot of tannin
in it. Tannin’s quite an astringent. Tannin, for example, you may be familiar with
something called witch hazel. Witch hazel is very astringent. It’s got very high tannin. It gives you that funny dry kind of taste
in the mouth that you might know from tea, for example. Tannins have quite an interesting effect on
bugs. They also have a great effect on toning different
areas of the skin. Witch hazel is often used on the face for
that reason, to tonify the skin, to draw it up, make it tighter. Black walnut is used traditionally for worms,
pinworms, hookworms, tape worms, roundworms, many different kinds of parasites that are
worms, in particular. It’s great for that. It’s pretty useless against Candida, to be
honest, but it’s great for parasites. Now, Coptis chinensis belongs to a family
of herbs that produce a chemical, an alkaloid, called berberine. Berberine is fantastic for use as an antifungal,
antibacterial, and antiparasitic. But using both of these herbs together is
not enough for Candida, unfortunately, because you’re missing out on undecylenic acid, caprylic
acid, garlic, neem. Many other things you’re missing out on. This is quite a narrow approach if you want
to take out a problem in your tummy, for example, if you’ve got bloating or gas. Just by taking these things, like Coptis,
or black walnut, or independent herbs, or putting your own formulas together, you can
do all that, but you’ll find you’re going to get limited results. Because this is how I worked for many years
with patients. I was recommending all kinds of products from
different companies, and then trying to make some kind of a formula for people, and I found
that I just wasn’t really getting there. Berberine is a great herb, is a great substance
to use with people. But you need to go wider, and broader, if
you really want to target Candida. For that reason I recommend you use something
with grapefruit seed extract in it, as well. As well as those two fatty acids, undecylenic
acid and caprylic acid. Once you combine those two with garlic, and
grapefruit seed extract, along with something like Coptis, you’re going to get a much, much
better effect. I saw an interesting YouTube video about a
peron with all different kinds of firearms trying to shoot something, you know, penetrate
a piece of steel, or blob like a piece of wooden tree stump, with different types of
firearms, and it was an interesting exercise. They started with a very small caliber handgun,
and all they could do was put a little dent in the piece of wood. By the time they worked right up to 50 caliber,
they blew the whole piece of wood apart. But they were inflicting damage on this piece
of wood with the different types of firearms they were using. Could you imagine if they’d fired five or
six guns at that tree at the same time, what kind of effect that would have had? That would have obliterated the tree into
a lot of pieces. That’s how I sort of think the rationale,
when you’re trying to work on someone’s digestive system. There’s no point using a slingshot against
Candida. But, also, you want to be careful not to use
a huge big weapon that’s overpowering. You want something that’s balanced, and that’s
when you’re looking at antimicrobial, find something that’s got multiple ingredients
in it that target parasites, that target different types of dysbiotic bacteria, SIBO, for example,
Small Intestinal Bacterial problem. But also that target different types of fungi,
different types, so not just Candida, but various other types of yeast. When you find a product like that with all
of those ingredients in it, you generally don’t need a lot of it, and it’s going to
work. So to answer the question, black walnut and
Coptis, are they enough to do a Candida cleanse? They’re not. You need to do more than this. All right, this is just a short sighted approach
that many people use, and testing before and after this kind of an approach will show you
that it’s just too weak to be effective against Candida. Thanks for tuning in.

    Thanks for the info Eric – makes a lot of sense to me 👏 Quick question, my gut, scalp, (even my joints and brain at times) seem to be extremely sensitive to regular "gut healing" foods like bone broth (histamine?), Glutamine, even liquid drops from N/path for liver etc. Any thoughts as I really need to heal this leaky gut properly, without constant flare-ups. So many food intolerances now its getting beyond a joke. Been thinking about your Canxida range (not sure if it will work and if available to buy in Victoria Australia?), with very small doses as you mentioned, gradually titrating up over time to heal this chronic leaky gut and autoimmunity…any help would be appreciated 🙌

    Could my senses improve after going on a Candida cleanse?
