Candida And Acid Reflux

August 27, 2019

Thanks for checking out my video today. I’m
going to talk about Candida and GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux or heartburn. A person recently asked
me on YouTube is Candida associated with GERD or reflux. Well, it certainly can be, and
I’ve seen this in many instances that people with Candida, particularly severe Candida,
can have esophageal reflux. One of the key things that Candida causes
is fermentation dysbiosis. Fermentation occurs basically from sugar consuming yeast or consuming
food, particularly refined carbohydrates, and producing gas. Fermentation is common
and will often present itself with bloating and gas, farting, flatulence, bloating of
the abdominal region, particularly after sweet foods. Many people who drink wine regularly
or beer, people who eat pizzas and these sorts of foods regularly get fermentation dysbiosis,
especially foods containing yeast when they consume sugar as well.
But heartburn is also quite common, and this can occur for a few reasons. Heartburn, particularly,
I find occurs with people with low stomach acidity. The whole digestive system becomes
disordered with Candida. Low stomach acidity or hypochlorhydria is very common, particularly
with people my age and over like 50 plus. Many people have got low functioning stomachs.
Heartburn, in fact, occurs more commonly is under acid than over acid stomach.
The whole idea of taking acid blockers, various drugs to dilute stomach acid to stop heartburn,
is quite a silly thing to do because you’re actually preventing the breakdown and uptake
of nutrients. You’re also affecting how the pancreas works because the pancreas relies
on good acidification from the gut to convert inactive enzymes to active enzymes that it
produces. And this, of course, is important to help break food down properly and also
provide food for the beneficial bacteria further downstream in the intestinal tract. Many people
taking these acid medications end up with a lot of digestive problems further downstream.
They may prevent getting heartburn, but they get a lot of problems down lower like constipation
or diarrhea or bloating or gas. Fermentation dysbiosis and underactive stomach
are two common things I associate with Candida. Yes, you will find a relationship there, particularly
chronic Candida, and esophageal reflux. Many patients also have bacterial infections of
the stomach. Helicobacter pylori, so bacteria can actually live in the stomach. They don’t
mind that acid environment, and they secrete a bicarbonate solution to neutralize acid
around them and that causes lots of burping. If you have a low-grade queasy sensation or
nausea, especially if you change position in bed, sitting up or lying down. If you avoid
certain kinds of foods because they make you feel quite sick or nauseous or you get hot
and cold sweats from eating things like garlic, especially right after eating them, this can
be a red flag or a certain sure fire sign that you could have a helicobacter infection.
I’ll do some more videos on H. pylori because it’s a huge problem. About one in five Americans
has helicobacter. I think it’s about 25 percent of Australian and Kiwis have this as well.
Again, this could be underpinning your GERD or reflux, and it commonly does. We know now
after the word from Dr. Barry Marshall, the Australian doctor who discovered helicobacter,
I believe it was 1994, that over 90 percent of all peptic ulcers and stomach ulcers are,
in fact, caused by helicobacter pylori, so quite a common bug. It can be transmitted
from one person to another with utensil sharing, sharing cups around, spoons, or stuff like
that. We find it in families, too. I often find the mom or the dad will have it and the
kids may have it or the uncle may have it. It’s not that uncommon.
That could be another sign or a reason why you could have this heartburn. It could be
helicobacter. It could be Candida. First thing I recommend that you do is, obviously, change
your diet and take these kinds of foods out that promote gas, the sugary foods, the takeaway
foods, the alcohols, all the sweet foods, candy and chocolate, these sorts of foods.
They should really go first and have a more alkaline diet, so put more vegetables in your
diet. Drink more water. These sorts of things are going to help neutralize stomach acidity
and help to reduce problems further downstream. Lemon juice, for example, quite a good thing
to do. Yes, to answer your question after all that,
there is an association with GERD or gastroesophageal reflux and Candida. There certainly is a relationship.
Be sure to check out and a nice product for you to take for esophageal
reflux and also especially for bloating is Canxida. Go and check out It’s
a product that I helped develop that’s been helping a lot of people around the world in
about 60 different countries, I believe. Helping these sorts of problems.
Thank you for tuning in.

    Thanks so much for your video! I was just wondering what is the best probiotic product to take, in your opinion. I am making and eating fermented foods like Kefir, Kimchi, and Sauerkraut but I think I need the help of a probiotic. What do you recommend?

    I do not have hearthburn, but I wake up almost every day with a sore throat from acid reflux. I cannot google acid reflux without heartburn coming up. Is it possible to have one without the other? And can my acid reflux have anything to do with my severe brain fog?

    Why does h pylori make you burp or belch often? Can this also be experi fed on an empty stomach?

    Hello! I was wondering why antiacids are bad yet people with candida are recommended alkalinoid herbs to kill off the yeast? Is it because the antiacids stays in the stomach and the herbs go down in the intestine? The herbs have killing properties.

    I've been dealing with horrible GERD since I was 16 (had a BMX related spinal injury and basically right after that started getting reflux, been taking various forms of Omeprazole ever since and have always had very upset stomach, am 31 now), basically regardless of what I eat, I get heartburn, even when I consume water, or haven't consumed anything at all so far for the day I still get it. I've since gone off the Omeprazole but have been taking tums/Rolaids like candy :-/ have been trying diet modifications for months, ate nothing but steak, broccoli and grilled chicken salads for 4 months straight while taking an HCL supplement and probiotics and the only improvement I noticed was with my stomach issues, my reflux still exists and is just as severe. Was eventually pointed your direction from a close friend of mine who has had stomach issues his whole life. Please help!

    I'm currently on your Canxida Remove but I'm experiencing severe heartburn. It's been 1.5 weeks but still having heartburn. I have tried several natural methods for heartburn but it don't help, and I have been doing the MEVY diet. I came back negative for H.Pylori after an endoscopy but was positive on the breath test. Please help

    pro biotics and aniti fungels + digestive enzymes have worked wanders, I used to suffer from very bad acid reflux and the western doctors gave me no good advice

  • Reply Ariel Fowler November 22, 2018 at 4:54 pm

    I’ve been experiencing bad heart burn on day 5 (and now 6) of the anti candida diet. Now this is something I’ve never experienced on a daily basis so I am a bit concerned. Not sure why this is happening and what I should be looking for?
