Can Candida Cause Issues With Your Lips?

August 13, 2019

Greetings. Eric Bakker, New Zealand naturopath. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator of
the CanXida range of products. Thanks for checking out this video from sunny
Las Vegas. I come to a trade show today all the way from
New Zealand. Long flight. Lots of stress with all the taking the shoes
off and all that kind of stuff at the airports. I’m glad to be here. I’m here really to check out some raw material
supplies and some great labs to do some testing for me to make the best possible stuff for
people out there that are supporting me in this endeavor. Thank you so much for looking at my products
and the kind of work I’ve done. It’s a result of accumulated 30 years of knowledge
put into the area. Can Candida cause a problem of the lips? Is the question. I’ve not personally seen any yeast infection
of the lips, but I have known people to get a lot of lip problems as a result of throat
or mouth or oral thrush. I have seen cracking of the lips, of dryness,
angular stomatitis or cracking of the corners of the mouth often denotes a B vitamin deficiency. Drying of the lips can denote fatty acid deficiency. Itching of the lips, especially around the
perioral dermatitis like little spots that are itching really bad. It can be eating kiwi. We call them kiwi fruit. You people in America call them kiwi. Kiwi fruit, mangos, pineapple, some of these
really tangy things like tree tomatoes, they can really cause funny sensations on the lips. Almost like you’ve had your mouth over something
that puts electricity or something like this. Electric shock kind of thing. Who would do that? That’s crazy. But you get my point? Like a tingling of the lips that often can
denote an allergy. Rawness of the lips can sometimes be environmental
like sunburn or wind blister. I’ve seen a few people outside here in Vegas
walking around putting lots of stuff all around their mouth, all sorts of like balms and stuff. I’m looking outside now and it’s as brown. It’s as brown as anything out there. It’s like burnt toast out there. It’s so brown in this country. It’s unbelievable. In New Zealand, it’s as green as an emerald. Environment plays a big role in lips. Lips are very sensitive and delicate. An external part of the body that can be very
much affected. Candida definitely affects many people orally. If can affect you in your mouth, on your tongue,
on the buckle wall like inside the cheek, it potentially well could affect the lips,
particularly on the inside of the lips. I have seen some children with yeast problems. You could try and apply just a very small
smear of oregano oil or tea tree oil on there that’s mixed in a little bit of olive oil,
for example, that will definitely help. Treating the mouth orally will often help
the lips significantly. To answer that question again finally in a
roundabout way, can Candida have a causative factor when it comes to the lips or create
problems? Potentially, it can. I’ve not seen it on the lips, but I’ve seen
it inside, so just be aware. Treat it orally. Thanks for tuning in.

    Hi Eric, Thank you so much for all of your videos you provide. I had a small red, slightly, raised rash that burns a little and is itchy on both corners of my lips. And my entire lips were more dry. I started a candida cleanse and now on the diet two weeks ago and the rash is much better, but it is not gone and is still slightly red and itchy. I take a B-complex daily, but going to start taking two a day. Could this still be candida related? Any other tips? Thank you so much.

    I like to think I’m eating well but I’ll wake up with a dry mouth and stuffy nose. Probiotics ?

    Good sir Eric. I have been on a lifestyle and diet change for the past couple months. I am also on a candida cleanse after having multiple rounds of 3-6+ month antibiotic treatments over a few years for blepharitis. I Am 29 years old and was a heavy alcoholic and pill abuser for over 10 years and am 18 months sober. I had lyme disease when I was 20 and alcoholic pancreatitis when I was 22. I quit caffeine, nicotine, refined sugar, processed foods, and refined grains and gluten. The only dairy I have is plain greek yogurt and kefir. Yesterday I got my allergy blood-work test back saying I am allergic to wheat. This makes much sense as many of my negative health symptoms, including the blepharitis the doctors put me on indefinite antibiotic treatments for, have diminished greatly since I quit gluten and lifestyle changed about 6 weeks ago. I have been exercising daily, meditating, reading and being more conscious as well. Your videos have been very informative regarding overall lifestyle and candida. I have watched many and find them to be even therapeutic sometimes like ASMR, lol. My cleanse seems to be going well except I just developed angular cheilitis and was wondering if it could be due to candida die off or if it could be candida doubling down. Contrarily my oral health seems better overall as I started oil pulling with coconut oil and there will hardly be any white on the back of my tongue in the morning. I do a golden milk tonic every morning with bone broth, coconut milk, coconut oil, turmeric, black pepper, ginger powder, minced ginger, cayenne pepper, and 4 cloves of garlic. I am ingesting oregano oil 2-3 times a day which I am in the middle of the 14 day cycle. I am also intermittent fasting 16:8 and have a diet consisting mostly of greens, fruits, yogurt/kefir, seeds, nuts, oats and quinoa. I take enzymes and eat some fermented sauerkraut before every meal. I take probiotic and fish oil supplements daily as well. Could the angular cheilitis be due to candida die off? I couldn't find anything about angular cheilitis being a symptom of die off, only that candida was a cause of it. Thank you for your videos and I hope New Zealand is great.
