Does Candida Cause Nail Fungus

August 15, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker. Naturopath from New Zealand. How are you all going out there? Thanks for checking out my video today. We’re going to talk about nail fungus. I’ve got a question here from a man called
Ray Fletcher from New Jersey. New Jersey is a state that I’ve had a few
patients contact me from. Quite an interesting accent. I think they speak a bit like the people from
New York. So, Ray is asking me here: “Does Candida cause
nail fungus?” That’s a good question, Ray. Many people around the world suffer from a
yeast infection on the peripheral parts of the body. It could be fingernails, it could be the toenails,
it could be the skin. The toenails commonly get nail fungus. Yes, Candida can definitely cause nail fungus. Onychomycosis is the medical term for nail
fungus. Many people will be using treatments like
Lamisil for example or other pharmaceutical medications to get rid of it. When you’ve got a problem with a nail fungus,
it usually means that you’ve got a weakness. You’ve got some kind of predisposition pushing
you towards this condition. Often, it’ll be the big toenail that will
be affected. The interesting thing is that you’ll find
the bigger toenails get affected rather than the smaller toenails, probably because they’ve
got a bigger blood supply, they’re a larger surface area for the yeast to grow underneath
that nail bed. Symptoms are often things like discolored
nail, whitish or brownish color, flaky or break easily, they’ll puff up a little bit. They can look pretty crappy. It’s not really something nice to walk around
in summertime with having your bare feet with some nice sandals or some nice open shoes
and having these crappy looking toenails. Many office people get it, because they often
wear socks all day. In my opinion, many people who’ve got persistent
toenail fungus also have got yeast in other parts of the body. They can have it in the gut, especially if
you notice signs like bloating or gas or sugar cravings. These are quite common with people with toenail
fungus. Many people will talk about using treatments
like Lamisil peripherally and forget about the gut. It’s not a good idea. In most cases, it may take only a few weeks
to clear it up with a medical treatment, but then you might find that the issue then is
it’ll come back, because you haven’t addressed the gut. What I want you to try and do really is to
work on the peripheral areas, but also to work on the gut to first determine if you’ve
got a yeast infection, how bad it is, and what steps you’re going to take to help clear
this up. Then when you get rid of the peripheral fungal
infections, they usually stay away for good. To answer your question, Ray, does Candida
cause nail fungus? Yes, it does. As I mentioned, it’s good for you to determine
what’s going on in the gut and digestion, clear up that in terms of diet and lifestyle,
and look at the peripheral parts of the body and treat them as well. I hope that answers your question. Click on the link below if you haven’t got
my report. Thanks for tuning in.

    Hi Dr. Bakker, If a person has no candida but has chronic toe nail fungus what could be the cause of this fungus?

    I Finally ordered some of this! I can't wait to get it. I have had nail fungus for half of my life. I have a pretty good immune system concidering all of the meds I use to take and sugar I was eating when I was younger. I will let you know how it goes. Totally exited to zap this fungus for good!
