We’re going to do another case history now.
This is a 32-year-old lady called Nikki. Again, as usual, I’m going to read a little bit out
of my book, Candida Crusher, and then I’m going to give the narration. I’m going to
explain a bit about the case as well. Nikki had her first antibiotic prescribed
to her when she was five years of age for minor health concerns like tonsillitis and
repeated ear infections. As she grew up, she started to develop bladder infections or cystitis.
During her years at boarding school, her doctor prescribed a broad-spectrum antibiotic and
Nikki was given penicillin twice annually for four years until she was 16.
Her skin started to develop a good deal of acne. At this stage, the doctor again prescribed
tetracycline, another antibiotic. At 17, Nikki developed a bad case of bronchitis that left
her with a wheeze and the doctor prescribed her an asthma inhaler, a bronchial dilator,
and a preventative steroid inhaler. She also started to develop vaginal thrush when she
was 17, and the doctor prescribed fluconazole. And she also had regular prescriptions of
creams that she applied regularly. At 18, she was given the Pill and stayed on
it for 10 years until she decided to have a baby when she was 28. It took 18 months
for Nikki to conceive when she went off the Pill, and she had been unable to have a second
child due to a case of endometriosis. I’ve been working with Nikki for the past year
to help her overcome Candida. She’s gained a considerable amount of weight and was prescribed
Prozac for depression last year. This is a typical case I see of a ladder of
drugs, a progression of drugs. Can you see what’s happened? Antibiotics, antibiotics,
increasingly sick, increasingly poor immune response, cystitis, vaginal thrush, endometriosis,
it just goes on and on. I saved this woman from a terrible fate because had she stayed
a victim to the medical system, she would’ve been prescribed more and more and more drugs.
The drug merry-go-round goes nowhere. It just leads you to increasing sickness.
I may sound cynical, but I’m speaking from nearly 30 years of experience. In the early
days, I was very angry and upset with the medical profession, but I’ve developed an
understanding and an ability to accept the status quo, this is how it is. Most people
are hooked into a drug-based system. They’re victims to the system. Most people are hooked
into symptom prescribing, and that’s because doctors have been taught to prescribe for
symptoms and never to look for causes. Doctors see anywhere between 30 to 60 patients in
a day. They’ve got no time at all to spend with you like I have in my consultation room.
It’s important for me to understand who you are, what you eat, how you live, how you relate
to people, your lifestyle considerations are critical to me if I’m to find out what the
hell happened to you. What was the exciting cause? What started stuff? And what’s the
maintaining cause? If I can’t work these things out, how the heck am I going to help give
you assistance so your body can restore itself? I can’t do that. Purely giving you Echinacea
for a cough or another herb or a vitamin for some symptom is as stupid as a doctor giving
you antibiotics and different drugs. It’s just not really going to get you anywhere.
In poor Nikki’s case, we can see here what’s really going on here. Endometriosis is not
a nice thing to have. One of my doctor friends many years ago went to Canada on an endometriosis
conference and she said that the whole three days what was spoken about was how to get
rid of vaginal thrush, different treatment that could be used because a lot of doctors
now are starting to see a connection between vaginal thrush and endometriosis.
When you get yeast in a vaginal area and you keep applying creams and applicators to try
to cure it or to keep taking diflucan, fluconazole, to try to cure it, you’re not curing it all.
You’re basically just eradicating a symptom. And not only that, in bad cases, you’re actually
driving the yeast in through the cervix into the endometrium where you get endometriosis.
You’re going to get infections internally, and these cysts can start forming, these chocolate
cysts, and you end up getting abdominal pain. Lots of cases of endo I’ve seen, in fact,
have an origin in vaginal thrush. It’s not fair to say that all women with endometriosis
have had thrush, but a lot of them have. And many of them had digestive problems or vaginal
problems quite a few years preceding the endometriosis. Endometriosis is just the end result of an
earlier condition that the person suppressed and not dealt with properly. And a lot of
diseases are like that. They need treating in the early days, so they don’t become full-blown
diseases after several years. This patient responded really well to the
Candida Crusher program. I had her on an antifungal product. I had her on probiotics. I made a
lot of diet changes with her. We made a lot of lifestyle changes, and now we’ve got a
very satisfied patient who’s no longer taking any pharmaceutical drugs.
Thanks for tuning in.
