Can My Bladder Infection Cause A Yeast Infection As Well?

August 15, 2019

Erik Bakker, Naturopath, author of Candida
Crusher with another FAQ. Can my bladder infection cause a yeast infection
as well? Well, it’s not really likely that a bladder
infection, which is generally bacterial, will cause a yeast infection, which is usually
fungal. They can occur simultaneously, though. And a bladder infection may predispose you
towards an immune weakness, which would increase your susceptibility to a vaginal yeast infection.
So it could be indirectly linked to it. It certainly could, and I certainly have seen
females with a bladder infection and a vaginal yeast infection occurring at the same time.
Quite painful and uncomfortable and I’ve certainly seen it. Having a bladder infection may make you take
an antibiotic like Trimethoprim for example or another antibiotic for several days, which
can increase your susceptibility to getting a vaginal yeast infection, so that’s how it
can be linked up. I’m going to do other videos on bladder infections,
so when you have a bladder infection drink plenty of water and look at my other information
you’ll find in my book, Candida Crusher regarding bladder infections. There are some good hints
and tips in the book, and you’ll find some more videos on what to do for bacterial infections
involving the bladder in particular. So, I hope that answers your question. Thanks
for your question.

    Really helpful video. I would really love to see more videos about bladder infections. I keep getting them and the antibiotics I was given to treat it actually caused all my Yeast Infection problems so I never want to take antibiotics again for this. As for natural remedies for bladder infections, I am really confused at the moment. D Mannose works alright but then some people say you should take baking soda to make the urine more alkaline as that should inhibit bacterial growth and takes the pain away. On the other hand I have German tablets (Acimol) that contain L-Metionine to make the urine more acidic and claims that an acidic urine inhibits bacterial growth. However, when taking these tablets the burning sensation becomes 10x worse while baking soda seems to soothe it. I am really confused and I can't find answers to this… Your help would be very much appreciated! Thanks – Lydia
