Best Treatment For Citrobacter Freundii Imbalance

August 28, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Thanks for checking out my video. I’m the author of a book called Candida Crusher. We’re going to keep going on with the Citrobacter
series, so we’re going to talk about best treatment for Citrobacter. This is a bacterial problem. Like many bacteria, there are hundreds of
species in your gut, and this one can become really imbalanced and create an overgrowth. Now, Citrobacter is often by default very
resistant to different types of antibiotics. Whether you’re taking Cephalosporin or Fluoroquinolone
or something like Ciprofloxacin. Many different types of antibiotic drugs are
given to patients if they come back with a positive for bacterial infection like Citro. Citrobacter is quite smart. Like many bacteria, it actually gets smarter
and smarter with many successive generations. Particularly if you take pharmaceutical antibiotics
to try and counter this. Some little known advice that people aren’t
given with antibiotics is never keep taking drugs concurrently for the same infection. It’s dumb. Why the hell would you do that? Why would you keep taking another drug? Doctors will say, “Well let’s try this one. Let’s try that one.” What the hell are you doing trying all these
different things for? All you’re doing is just digging a deeper
hole for yourself to fall into that you’ll never climb out of eventually. I’ve spent too much time in my practice trying
to fix up the mess created by “Let’s give this a try” kind of practitioners. Be very careful. The first shot is the best shot. If you found you’ve got an infection, of a
bacterial overgrowth, be very careful the first time you do a treatment. Consider carefully. Maybe you should take a natural treatment
before you consider a pharmaceutical intervention. Because it’s a lot easier to ramp things up
than it is to ramp things down. Once you’ve done a lot of collateral damage,
you’ve busted up a lot of beneficial bacteria, you’ve created a drug resistant form of bacteria,
what the heck are you going to try and do to really clean up this mess? My opinion, not that I want to blow my own
trumpet: Check out CanXida Remove. This is a product I designed which is proving
to be highly successful for the eradication of lots of different types of bacteria. I’m also finding it excellent for resistant
types of bacteria like Citrobacter. Why is that so? Because it’s a very compound product that
contains many different types of antimicrobials in it. Some people will say, “Oil of oregano is the
best” or “Tanalbit is the best” or “Plant tannins are the best” or “Grapefruit seed
extract is the best.” What I did is I spent quite a lot of years
doing stool testing on patients, and I’ve really worked out that many patients come
back with bacteria or overgrowths like Citrobacter freundii. I’ve worked out with the stool panels, we
can have a look at the back of the stool test and we can actually see the susceptibility
panel. We can see what Citrobacter is very sensitive
to, and that was a big part of how I created my product, was looking at thousands of stool
tests over a period of a long period of time and working out the best combination of antimicrobials
to counter this, and the results are certainly coming back. We’re getting really good feedback from many
people now with Citrobacter infection that we’re slowly turning these infections back
to normal. Be careful what you take. Even if you just take one antimicrobial like
oil of oregano, you may develop a resistance against one particular type of thing. Just be careful not to routinely take the
same natural product or pharmaceutical especially, again and again. It’s not a good idea. When you take a very good antimicrobial and
you’ve got a big Citrobacter problem, you’ll find initially a big counter response of the
body. This can be described by some people as die
off. A good product like CanXida Remove will create
a strong effect to counter bacteria like Citrobacter. That could include for up to a week, initial
discomfort, but that will very quickly disappear, and you’ll notice a big change in the comfort
of the digestive system. So, rule number one: Think carefully about
taking a pharmaceutical drug for a Citrobacter problem. Number two: Why would you take the same medication
time and again or keep changing it to different types of medications, whether it’s pharmaceutical
or natural, to get the effect you’re looking for. Number three: your first shot is your best
shot. So, when you’ve got a problem, take something
good straight up front, low dose to get used to it, and to test what your reactions are,
ramp it up, and then high dose. Take the sustained high push for several weeks,
maybe three or four weeks, and then back off and at the same time you can take a good digestive
enzyme/probiotic product. Something like CanXida Restore for example
can be taking concurrently with Remove, or could be used at the tail end to finish things
off and to tidy up the gut. Of course, retest. So if you’re positive for Citrobacter, check
it out again to make sure that you’ve nailed this thing. Check out my other videos where we’ll talk
a little bit about diet and Citrobacter coming up now. Thanks for tuning in.

    Yo eric what are your thoughts and opinions on the ketogenic diet in tackling candida and adrenal fatigue and do you feel that losing excess bodyfat is necessary too ?

    Hi Eric .I got my comprehensive stool sample back and its says my CitroBacter freundii is +4 (Dysbiotic Flora) and a few Blastocystis hominis but all the other bacteria pretty good with no yeast cultures.
    Been between Grapefruit seed ext & Ursi Uvi(which Citrobacter is highly suspectible) for last 45 days..It feels like i'n having die-off symptoms (headache(s) & still bloaty after meals). Any product you can recommend?

    Do natural antimicrobials need to be rotated with citrobacter?

  • Reply Shari Bascom May 3, 2017 at 8:39 pm

    So, I'm enthralled with your videos. You sound brilliant and I need some brilliance in this area. I have had CONSTANT urinary tract infections. Have had to be on constant antibiotics, and IV antibiotics and very very sick…close to death last fall. Constant infections with a resistant ecoli. They couldn't find the "source" of the infections into the bladder. They finally did a laparoscopic surgery to see if there were any lesions or anything not showing up on the x-rays, and sure enough found a necrotizing epiploica on my bowel, in close proximity to the bladder. This stopped the "hospital stay" infections and that resistant ecoli. Now I am having this Citrobacter Freundii. That was at Christmas, 2016. Now, I'm having this citrobacter Freundii that won't go away. I work for a urologist EEEEKKKK!! He, of course, is Macrodantin, which may have made it worse. I have it again, never got over it! I just had gastric bypass surgery, too. I need HELP. Can I safely take the Candida Remove with gastric bypass? I take a fantastic probiotic, Plexus Probio5 with enzymes, but it doesn't seem enough I guess. I don't know if this will reach you or not…. but I am impressed with what you are saying.

    Thank you! What about for very sensitive patients such as those with Interstitial Cystitis re your candida product?? Or those with salicylate intolerance?? What about Histamine intolerance? And is citrabactor a big histamine producer? Thanks for providing all this info!

    I ordered these for my dad and I just received his order. As I was reading the ingredients I noticed it contains Berberine HCI. My dad use to take Berberine for blood pressure and glucose control, but now no longer takes it since his blood pressure tends to be on the low side now. And his blood pressure was dropping below 100 on the systolic. So we stopped the Berberine. He was on 500 mg, then 250mg. 
    His heart stress test result were good as of January 2017 this year.

    Now no longer takes it How many milligrams of Berberine is in CanXida? Is there milligrams of Berberine or micrograms?Will CanXida cause a drop in blood pressure? I would greatly appreciate any information.

    Do you see that once citrobactor is eradicated than the adrenals begin to heal or adrenal fatigue symptoms go away? Also what about treating this in children?

    Hello mr. Bakker,
    I have a question, How long does it approximately take to treat a citrobacter infection in the gut by your canxida remove product? Or is the treatment time different from person to person like with a candida infection?
    Thank you.

    HI Eric,

    I have been trying to get an appointment with you but no luck so far. Hoping you can give me a bit of direction on here before I go crazy with this diagnosis. I've been researching so much my head is spinning and no idea what to do.

    I got my DrsData stool test back and I've got C Freundii 4+ and Klebsiella Oxytoca +4. My sample is most susceptible to Caprylic Acid, Uva Ursi and GSE for both bacterias.

    Should I attack with all 3 by introducing them slowly, one by one or should I concentrate on 1 only? I bought all 3 in anticipation of an all out war!!! Also, should I take a probiotic on the first day or should I wait until I clear up some of the bad guys first? I'm very low on Lactobacillus +1, Bifidobacterium +2, Clostridium +2.

    Would really appreciate your input so I can get to work ASAP.

    Hello, my18 months daughter had 70% Citrobacter fr. please, can you advise what we can do, and what is the tolerable level of this bacteria?

  • Reply Scott Q March 10, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    I read that Citrobacter Freundii is on the list of the "citrate positive" gram-negative bacteria that utilizes sodium citrate as a carbon source. If someone is very constipated and suffering from both SIBO/Dysbiosis (citrobacter freundii +3 on stool test) and also Candida/SIFO, wouldn't magnesium citrate be a bad option here? If so, what would be a better, safer, and more bioavailable form of magnesium supplementation?

    Hello Mr. Bakker,

    I've been taking my 88 yr old mother to a functional medicine doctor (F.D.), who has helped her quite a bit as to getting her off her diabetic drugs, since last June 2018. He had her take a very intricate and detailed stool test that tested positive for Citrobacter freundii complex (+4). We tried to eradicate the bacteria with a round of the F.D.s protocol but it didn't work and we had her primary doctor put her on Cipro. We thought we knocked out the bacteria then in July but in Nov 2018 she started not feeling well. Changing health plans and moving to a new home caused some delay in what to do as far as treatment again. In Feb. 2019, the F.D. had her take another detailed stool test while her M.D. had her take a stool test that only tested for E. coli Shiga Toxin EIA, Slamonella/Shigella Screen and Campylobacter Culture, which was "negative". The test by the M.D. convinced him she had no gut bacteria and the 2nd round of Cipro she took in Feb. 2019 knocked it out. The M.D. was unaware that I had gotten a more intricate stool test done from the F.D. That test not only showed the original Citrobacter freundii complex, but a second gut bacteria of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (both at +4). Since this gut bacteria, my mom has had low oxygen levels, high diabetic numbers (regardless of eating good foods) and now polycythemia vera.
    The choices we have now are to take a round of different antibiotics, either Ceftazidime or Trimeth-sulfa, or get a referral to see a GI specialist and see what his take is on my mothers condition.
    I came upon your YouTube video and, although your products are quite expensive, I'd like to know how much success you've had in ridding these two bacteria? Any thoughts?

    Is Citrobacter freundii a type of Candida?

  • Reply Michaela Johnson May 8, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    Dr. Bakker,
    My stool testing revealed I have a high growth of Citrobacter Freundii, Klebsiella Pneumoniae, and Enterobacter Cloacae. I have been on the Candida Remove and Restore pills since March, but I am wondering if I should take additional Uva-Ursi or Plant tannins on top of it. These were the natural alternatives to antibiotics given to me by the Genova report to get rid of the potential pathogens. What are your thoughts? Thank you.
