Can I Get A Yeast Infection From Dirty Gym Equipment?

August 14, 2019

Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher with another question I get asked from time to time. Can I get a yeast infection from dirty gym
equipment? I’ve been getting a few of these “dirty” questions
lately. Can I get an infection from a dirty towel? Can I get an infection from a dirty
toilet seat or dirty gym equipment or dirty Jacuzzis or dirty whatever? I think it’s important for you to look at
the fact that you need to understand it’s not about catching illness from something.
It’s about building up your resistance so you don’t become susceptible to different
diseases. There are always paranoid people that walk around not touching handles of doors,
not willing to walk around airports or public places in fear of disease. So fear is not
a good thing. People that have got strong, powerful, vibrant immune systems don’t usually
get sick. It’s the weak people, the susceptible people that get sick. I often draw a line on a piece of paper when
I get a new patient in and explain that we’ve got susceptibility on one side and we’ve got
resistance on the other. So when this seesaw becomes tipped, for example, once resistance
increases susceptibility drops. And once susceptibility increases resistance drops. And the little
triangle here in the middle, the fulcrum, I write the word �stress� on that triangle.
And we’ve also got things that push the triangle one way or the other. So stress, for example,
not sleeping enough, smoking and drinking alcohol, arguing with people or being angry,
these are all what I call health busters. And these things decrease your resistance
by increasing your susceptibility. They reduce your immune system’s power. Health builders, on the other hand, are things
you do to nourish and build health. Eating good foods, getting enough sleep, being at
peace with yourself and other people, exercising, drinking pure water, breathing nice and slowly
and deeply, meditating, relaxing; these are all health building events that are going
to increase your resistance. So I think these are important concepts which I’d rather you
look at than living in a constant fear of catching some kind of disease. It’s not a
good thing. Medicine’s full of fear. We’re told if we
don’t get injections and vaccines all the time or take drugs, we’re going to get sick.
So I tend to call this the sick building business. I can’t see why they call it the health care
business. So you need to think carefully about those concepts. Taking drugs is not the answer
to getting better. The answer’s in your hand by increasing your resistance and decreasing
your susceptibility. So don’t live in fear of catching disease.
All right? So I hope that answers your question. What was your question again? Can I get an
infection from dirty gym equipment? You potentially could but you wouldn’t exercise
on equipment that’s dirty that you would have a concern about anyway. And remember; don’t
live in the fear factor. It’s not a good way to live when it comes to your health. You can read a lot more in my book, Candida
Crusher, about these concepts. So get yourself a copy and have a look there. In the seventh
chapter, particularly, there’s a good section on that point I’m trying to make. Thank you.
