Chronic Prostatitis And Candida

August 19, 2019

Thanks for joining my video. I’ve had quite
a few YouTube requests for some more videos on Balanitis and Prostatitis. Prostatitis
is something I’ve seen now for a long time in a lot of my male patients. It’s actually
quite a serious problem, and I think a lot of doctors and urologists underplay prostatitis
in terms of the connection with a yeast infection. Many of them, in fact, don’t even believe
that males can have a yeast infection in the prostate, which I find quite hard to believe.
If you’ve had recurrent antibiotics like many different rounds of antibiotics. If you’ve
had many visits to the urologist and basically nothing comes up or the urologist is sick
and tired of seeing you or keeps giving you different drugs and you’re not getting your
resolution. Or if you’ve got some of these signs and symptoms that I’m about to read
out to you, there’s a big chance that you could well have a serious prostatic problem
in terms of Candida. Some of these problems here, I’m just going
to read them out to you. Pain on or difficulty with urination, blood in the urine, joint
pain often moving from joint to joint, unexplained skin rashes, increased food intolerances or
allergies, poor sleeping, dry irritated eyes, reduced amount of urine, problems with ejaculation,
painful ejaculation, ejaculating where there’s blood in the semen, having no interest in
sex or pleasure in sex anymore. This is common also in prostatitis. Pain down the sides of
the legs. There will be pain down here or around the ball sac, pardon the expression,
around the testicle area. There could be pain around there or the perineal area. Often a
low-grade chronic pain or a dull pain can be signs of prostatitis. Always catching colds
or flus. Blurry vision. These are typical signs of Candida aren’t
they. Binge eating on sweet foods. Liking beer and pizza. Lots of guys like beer, for
example. Beer is the worst kind of stuff for you to drink when you’ve got prostatitis.
I’ve got a good friend of mine who loves drinking beer. He’s an electrician friend of mine.
He loves beer and he’s got a prostate problem, which he’s had for many years. And I know
that if he doesn’t drink beer, if he switches over to vodka or gin, he has less problem
with his prostate than if he drinks plenty of beer. But any alcohol consumption is not
a good idea with a yeast infection. As I mentioned, reduced sexual desire, bronchial
cough, asthma, problems with sinus, nosebleeds, palpitations, irritable bowel, cold hands,
cold feet, sugar cravings, panic attacks, headaches, the list goes on and on and on.
There are so many different signs and symptoms of chronic prostatitis.
What do you do if you’ve got chronic prostatitis? Well, if your doctor is giving you no joy
at all, and the urologist is looking at you like you’re talking some kind of a weird language;
it’s time for you to have a good think about your case history yourself. Do you have a
past history of taking antibiotics? Have you been doctor hopping from one doctor or naturopath
to another without any result? Do you have all these concomitant symptoms? By concomitant,
I mean do you have all these extra symptoms apart from that pain, burping, bloating, farting,
sugar cravings, sleeping problems, sweating. All these sorts of things could be pointing
toward prostatitis. What I want you to do is take my yeast infection
quiz. Please go to my quiz. You’ll find this on Do the quiz, find out
if you’re mild, moderate or severe, and then do my program. You don’t have to get my book
if you can’t afford it, but you’re going to get a lot of benefit from it. Go to
and have a good look at a lot of the articles I’ve written just for you guys on prostatitis.
The big thing is the diet and the lifestyle change. You just have to make these changes.
I’ve seen many patients with chronic prostatitis overcome this problem by making the change.
You make the change, the change will occur, so it’s really up to you. But don’t despair.
Just because you’ve been told that nothing can be done for you, it doesn’t mean to say
that you need to take this kind of crappy advice. There’s always something that can
be done. Thanks for tuning in.

    Thanks for the Video.

    I felt a slight pain on the head of my penis. And a swollen foreskin. I honestly felt I had ballantitis. THey have me 10 days of antibiotics, and some diflucan. I took both, I felt the problem got a bit better, but didnt go away.

    Eventually, I started feeling occasional pains in my inner legs and butt and penis. And eventually, I started getting SUPER gassy with anything I ate.

    SO, that made me start taking 2 showers a day, and got a chlorine filter. I started following the candida diet of yours. I'm on phase 2.  As of now, my stomach feels much better, the pains are all much less, but not 100 percent gone. I'm going to start eating 3 cloves of garlic a day. I've been following the candida diet of yours to a T.

    I've had recurring bouts of athlete's foot , jock
    itch and flatulence since 2006; but in the last week I had this red itchy patch of skin directly over the bladder or prostate gland area; I also have frequent urination – a doctor 2 years ago, wanted me to get an ultrasound on my prostate gland, but I never went through with it, fearing that a prostate cancer diagnosis would overwhelm me. Very interested about the occurrence of candida AND prostatitis and if I have both of these in myself?

    I have 2 questions and great thanks if you can answer them? 1, can vaccinations cause a chronic over growth of yeast in the human body? 2, if one controls or converts Candida back to its original form (YEAST) in the body can the prostate still have Candida proliferating inside of it?

    So I've been experiencing some classic symptoms of Prostatsis for around 2 1/2 or 3 months. The day before the sudden onset of this symptoms I ate like 10 doughnuts and later that night a bunch of pizza. So after lots of research and being told by my urologist I basically have nothing wrong. I went to the web and found out about prostatis. Nearly ever single thing matched. Recently I stumbled open this "Candida Prostatsis" so after view your video I decided to cut out the oatmeal and sweets that I basically have on a daily basis. Today was one of the best days I've had in a longgggg time in terms of Prostatsis symptoms. Not totally gone but way better. However I now I found myself with a dull headache and dizzy spells. It overwhelmed me as I crazed sugar so I had to eat a few different snacks with the dizzy after that going away but still having the headache. HOW am I supposed to deal with this!!? Damned if I do damned if I don't :((( help

    Is it possible for Blastocystis hominis to live in the Bladder, Prostate… Urinary Tract and cause symptoms of Chronic Prostatitis Intersitial cystitus? Secondly, I assume beer should in particularly be avoided with these symptons either way?

    I have candida too, pain after urination likely the prostate? I felt better after taking some saw palmetto.

    Is your candida diet safe for someone who has type one diabetes? I was recently diagnosed with prostatitis and given 2 months of cipro. A month in and I'm feeling worse than before. I've had recurrent fungal infections due to my diabetes and i believe that this too is a fungal infection. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to clear this up but i also want to make sure I'm not going to compromise my diabetes. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Eric! I've been having a complex time with what i think is candida and I'd love your opinion if you don't mind. Im 25, and about six months ago I was diagnosed with balanitis, and chronic prostatitis about three months ago, coupled with a UTI a month or so ago. throughout the last three months ive been on about six weeks of antibiotics and of course every time i go off the symptoms get worse. the prostatitis has the whole time been accompanied by mild gas, pain and bubbling near the appendix, rash on the penis and testicles, and now after coming off the antibiotics increases in the pain around my prostate and in my testicles. i've been treating the rashes with topical coconut oil, and also gone on an antifungal diet. It sounds like this is candida right? What is my likely timeline for prostate recovery if I stick to the diet and use Canxida? any helpful tips for dealing with candida-caused prostatitis? Thank you so much!

    Hello Doctor, I've taken your online test and came up with mild probability of candida. I had unprotected anal sex with a woman, after 1 week started feeling itching on the penis, then pressure in the perineum, first urologist prescribed me Azithromycin for 3 days, then Levofloxacin for 2 weeks and Cardura XL (Doxazosine), no progress, then also got small red dots on the penis gland, put some clotrimazole cream and dissapeared. Then went to second urologist, prescribed me Bactrim F for 4 weeks and Prosgutt (Serenoa Repens Urtica dioica,, I'm into week 2, called the doctor and asked me to do a semen cultive to figure out exactly why bacteria I have. What do you think of the treatment so far, could I've picked a yeast infection? Also had a condom slippage when having vaginal sex.

    Being an allopathic doctor an observation need to be mentioned here. Once I had a meeting with a friend whose friend had gone through extensive urology consultation and was diagnosed to have chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Across the table we had a detailed medical discussion about the medical history of that person. This patient took all treatment modern allopathic medicine has to offer but had no improvement. He had suffered for more than one year with this illness.
    He had the chance to meet a yoga teacher at an institution where he explained his problems. The yoga teacher after listening to his problems concluded that the illness is due to weakening of the yoga Chakras of the patient’s body. The reason for this was unnatural ejaculation and sexual acts which he explained as any one of the following
    • Excessive masturbation (which was true in this patient’s case). By excessive means more than the rate at which body can produce new sperm.
    • Anal sex
    • Oral sex
    • Homosexual activity

    The yoga teacher mentioned that due to unnatural ejaculation and sexual acts the patient has lost his masculinity which led to weakening of his yoga Chakras. This situation has resulted in his illness.
    The patient was given orders to practice light yoga exercises (light yogic exercises only) in morning after taking a brisk walk. This walk should be taken strictly during the time period of half hour before sunrise (never after sunrise) for some distance (upto a couple of miles depending upon the stamina).This regular walk allows the body to absorb the solar energy from the early dawn (early dawn only) in order to boost up the Yoga Chakras as sun is one among the best sources of energy for human body. At the same time it is to be considered due to the present physical condition body cannot be exposed to full sun light (other than that of early dawn and late evening) as it may be harmful to the body since the yoga Chakras are weakened.
    Strict disciplinary lifestyle and diet was ordered which consisted of the following
    • no alcohol in any form
    • no narcotics/illicit drugs
    • no tobacco use
    • pure vegetarian diet(no meat, no fish, no eggs, no mushrooms)
    • diet comprising of good vegetarian proteins and food that boosted sperm production like moringa, drumstick etc
    • 5-6 litres of water per day which was lowered to normal quantities after recovery.
    • celibacy is advisable during recovery
    • Direct exposure to sunlight (except during the morning walk) to be avoided. An black umbrella was advised in an situation where walking in bright sunlight was essential
    • Sleep 2 hours extra than normal at night till recovery as it is compulsory. Never sleep during day time. Sleep at night should never be skipped or decreased as yogic chakras are rejuvenated during night’s sleep.
    • During the feverish time it is advisable to take tea with milk as tea has medical ingredients to keep the severity of illness down and milk will make the medicine light and will avoid constipation as for some patients constipation is also seen during the sick period.
    • Take more fruits & lemon and food articles containing a lot of proteins

    The patient was very regular at exercises and strictly followed the aforementioned lifestyle and diet. In four months he regained his full health. The yoga teacher further mentioned that following the aforementioned lifestyle with restricted sexual practice and diet for the rest of his life is the only way to retain his health. He also advised the patient to strictly avoid the aforementioned unnatural ejaculation and sexual acts in the future.
    The yoga teacher was of the opinion that for those who has done adequate treatment according to modern medicine but still not cured, consultation with a yoga teacher and practicing exercises as well as morning brisk walk to rejuvenate the yogic chakras along with the aforementioned lifestyle and diet can be the only solution to this illness. Yogic exercises to rejuvenate the yoga Chakras can be learned from any yoga teacher but the patient’s yoga teacher who successfully treated him always had extra emphasis in following the aforementioned lifestyle and diet throughout life.
    This patient summarised to my friend about his treatment routine instructed by the yoga teacher as follows
    • Taking light Yogic exercises after letting the body absorbing the solar energy from dawn while taking brisk morning walk in order to rejuvenate the yoga Chakras.
    • Practicing the aforementioned lifestyle and diet throughout life.
    • Avoiding unnatural ejaculation and sexual acts which is mentioned above strictly throughout life.
    Now I have lost the contact with my friend and this patient. So I am not in a position to respond to any enquiry or question with respect to this disease. Hence I will not be checking into this forum again or respond to any question or enquiry.

    So what do we do what do we take? I've been suffering with this for 15 years. I know it's candida related. After 15 years you start to figure things out even if no doctor will believe it. Please give me the answer. The person who knows how to solve this problem will be written into my will.

    Tea tree oil rubbed liberally on perineum and anal area 2x/day has improved my prostatitis a lot. The candida connection came about a few months ago when I had an actual outbreak of candida on my scrotum and penis. I've had prostatitis for 12 years.

    Thank you for doing this i think i have candida in my very first symptoms is i have itchy in my penile with fishy smell and my penis head is red and sore i thought i have std so i did go to my doctor to get check and all test came out negative. At first gave me antibiotics few weeks then i get cured and then after a month or 2 the symptoms came back so i look for natural to treat them i bought balanitis cream to treat candida and it suppressed…and i start putting coconut virgin oil in my penis which killed the fishy smell balanitis. I spoke to my urology and he said i cant get candida or balanitis because im circumsized. I notice my penis head is crack, dry, and changing color to it darkenst my skin.. So i stop applying coconut oil but the itchiness and fishy smell was gone. i had sex to my gf and she didnt have get yeast infection so it means i dont have balanitis… Maybe the candida now went to my prostate because when i ejaculate it burns. So my urologist prescribed me another course of cipro and its seems helping my prostate seems shrinks no more burning wile ejaculation. I need help if i need to take probiotic to cure this. I notice when i started taking probiotic my symptoms is gone… Now my doctor gave me another course of cipro for a month and half cipro 500mg 2 times a day. I need some advice i had this problem since 2016 and now seems its getting worst and i want to kill this… It interrupt my sexual intercourse to my partner and i was gettting frustrated. I need help or some advice. Thank you.

    After months of prostatitis hell, 2 uros, endless "testing", I:

    – cut completely the gluten, fruit, added sugars, alcohol, caffeine
    – took probiotics and kombucha first thing in the a.m. on an empty stomach
    – periodically tried intermittant fasting (up to 19 hours)

    My symptoms are all nearly gone. I urge every guy to get off antibiotics, especially if no infection has been found.

    I know people will suggest to start this process slowly, but I'm 37 and was desperate…I woke up one day and knew this was candida related, not bacterial.

    Dr Eric. Do you patients with prostatitis + dysbiosis/candida get prostate flare ups when commencing the diet and antimicrobials? Seems to get worse with antimicrobials. Do you ever use potassium citrate to alkaline urine? Thanks

  • Reply Rene March 9, 2019 at 3:51 am

    Hello dear Sir, I am showing several symptoms of prostatitis but I haven’t had my prostate checked by the urologist yet (my GP couldn’t determine my issue) Is there any way I can discuss this further with you as to what step I should take next and beyond? These symptoms are quite annoying, especially long lasting headache.
    Kind regards

    Eric, I've started taking Canxida remove for prostatitis and fungal infection on feet and testicles(ball sack lol). Only taking 2/day to start and was curious if symptoms can get worse before getting better.
