Helicobacter Pylori And Candida Connection

August 13, 2019


Greetings, it’s New Zealand naturopath, Eric
Bakker, author of Candida Crusher and the formulator of the Canxida range of dietary
supplements. Thank you for checking out my video. We’re going to talk about helicobacter
pylori today. I’ll probably end up doing a few videos on helicobacter. It’s such an incredibly
endemic problem. So many patients we see in the clinic have got H. Pylori and so many
patients are misdiagnosed. Testing is not always very accurate with HP. In many instances,
I’ve noticed that patients come back positive with the symptoms who swear they’ve got the
condition. They go and get a stool test or a blood test. It comes back negative. But
when you treat them, they get no result. I’ve seen this time and again. It’s amazing. It’s
nice to have a test confirmation. But in most cases, I will just treat the patient for helicobacter
if I suspect it. Back in 1984, an Australian doctor, Dr. Gary
Marshall, discovered helicobacter working in the lab. He started to wonder why so many
people were getting gastric ulceration, heartburn, peptic ulcers, and discovered that there was
a spiral shape bacteria involved. I think it was originally called campylobacter pylori,
but then the name got changed to helicobacter. Helico as in a spiral or a helicoid. It’s
an incredible bug and it is endemic in many countries around the world.
In New Zealand and Australia, 25 percent of the population are infected. In North America,
I believe it’s about 25 to 30 percent of the population. In some countries like Africa,
it’s up to 90 percent of the population. Not everybody who’s infected will necessarily
be symptomatic. Some people are asymptomatic, which means they’re not necessarily presenting
with symptoms. They could be carriers. Many people who have got it will certainly notice
the symptoms, which could be burping, bloating. Often it’s digestive discomfort with eating
certain foods, so certain foods won’t agree with that person. That person may have been
taking some type of an antacid or an acid blocker for a short period of time or for
many, many years. Once you’ve got helicobacter, you’ve generally got helicobacter for a long
time. The key issue we get with it is heartburn.
It will be like GERD, a GERD kind of a symptom, gastroesophageal reflux. So you could have
it every now and then, hot stuff or sour stuff coming up. You can feel a discomfort here
behind the sternum in the part of the chest here. It may feel really uncomfortable especially
after eating. You may find that standing or sitting or changing position could increase
or decrease the discomfort. You may find that by taking an acid blocker you get a lot of
relief of this symptom. If you’ve got HP, have a look around at your
family and friends to see who suffers from a similar kind of problem. I see it often
in relationships. It will be in family relationships. Your mom could have it or your dad or your
auntie or your sister could have it or your husband or wife could have it. It’s quite
common for this bug to be spread with utensil sharing or kissing. It can be spread, so just
be careful if you’ve got it. If you’ve been taking a medication for many years to block
acid, you may well have helicobacter pylori. My advice is to go and get tested on the off
chance that they pick it up. If you get tested and it comes back negative and you can relate
to helicobacter pylori, then my advice is to treat it. Even if you just treat for SIBO,
small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, you may end up finding a very, very good result.
Chances are if you’ve got bad GERD or reflux and you’re taking a blocker and if you treat
it and get a very, very good outcome, my advice is to slowly wean off the acid blocking drug
and to take more of an antibacterial/antifungal approach for three to six months to try to
eradicate all this rubbish you’ve got up here. It can change your life. Many people with
H. Pylori end up with a lot of tiredness and it’s no wonder they get tired because they
end up getting a reduced ability to really break down and absorb and utilize the nutrients
coming in through the food. It’s like starving an automobile of gas or petrol going into
the carburetor. If you’re going to starve the vehicle, the power to the wheels is not
really going to happen properly. So your muscles aren’t going to really feel good if you’ve
got helicobacter long term. Your sleep is not going to feel good. Your mood is not going
to feel good. You’re going to feel grumpy. You’re going to feel pissed off. You’re going
to feel tired. You’re going to feel you’re getting older. You’re going to feel a lot
of discomfort and then your doctor is just going to keep writing out prescriptions for
these darn acid blocking medications. The drug Nexium in the US is a typical example
of an acid blocking drug. It netted the pharmaceutical companies $6.1 billion US dollars in 2014.
That’s one drug for one symptom. There is about 10 drugs all in the top 10, so we’re
looking at literally a trillion dollars’ worth of pharmaceutical drugs each year in North
America alone just to block stomach acid. My guess is that one in three or one in four
are those people who’ve got HP. Think about it. If you’ve got heartburn, reflux,
burping, bloating, sick after certain meals, sensation of fullness after meals, or certain
foods disagree very quickly when you eat them. There could be some queasiness or nausea there.
You may find discomfort when lying in bed at night. You may need to prop up the bed
head with a brick. Some people put a brick under the bed head. It makes them feel better.
If you’ve got any of those kind of symptoms, you need checking out. If you have HP long
term, you’ll end up a very sick person on multiple medications with multiple diseases.
HP is often found in conjunction with Candida. Candida like other kinds of bugs is opportunistic.
If it sees the opportunity, it will start taking off and growing. My guess is that many
people with helicobacter also have very poor levels of beneficial bacteria. They have a
yeast infection in the body and other associated gastric problems. The reason why is because
they’ve been on medications for so long. They take acid blockers and some take sleeping
pills and some take antidepressants and they take all this cocktail of drugs and then they
wonder why their whole insides aren’t working properly. The big thing is to wean you off
this sort of stuff in the long term, so you don’t need to rely on it and eventually get
you off all medications, so your body can run on its own steam, produce its own power
with the good diet that you’re eating and it will turn your whole life right around.
I’ve seen this with many patients over the years.
Consider taking the Canxida Remove tablet. It seems to be working very well for helicobacter.
It’s a product I initially created for Candida yeast infections. We’re getting very, very
good feedback from people with helicobacter pylori, with parasites. Many different kinds
of parasites responding to that product, Candida, of course. I’m using it for SIBO patients
as well very successfully. Food allergy patients, leaky bowel patients, all sorts of conditions.
But I’m also noticing good results with helicobacter pylori with the Canxida Remove.
The Canxida Restore is a fantastic companion product. Because everybody I find with helicobacter
will have a lack of beneficial bacteria. Everybody with helicobacter will have an issue with
digesting food properly. If the pancreas doesn’t function properly, that’s because they keep
putting these acid blocking medications in the stomach that changes the pH, the acidity
of the stomach, which renders a lot of the pancreatic enzymes ineffective. Taking a digestive
enzyme with meals when you’ve got HP is a very, very smart idea. Especially if that
enzyme contains probiotics. I don’t recommend you take prebiotic supplements
like inulin or FOS with helicobacter. I’ve had too many bad results when it comes to
that. And these are some of the reasons why I created Canxida Restore. Because I wanted
to give the patient a product containing high quality enzymes, high quality probiotics without
FOS, inulin or any of that prebiotic crap in there. That causes too much nausea, bloating,
sick feelings. I’ve taken all of those out. The Canxida Restore with helicobacter is best
taken one with each meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Canxida Remove, the antifungal/antibacterial, is best also taken with meals. They work perfectly
fine together. They don’t cancel each other out at all, so you can take the Canxida Remove
twice per day initially, and the Canxida Restore you can straight away take three per day with
meals. If you start noticing increased acidity, burping and bloating on that regime, you just
back off by one dose. You can still take your acid-blocking medication at the same time,
and slowly you can be weaned off that. A very, very good tip that I’m going to leave
you with. The last tip and a very, very worthwhile tip that’s helped a lot of people out. I want
you to get some green cabbage and then juice one or two cabbage leaves every single morning.
When you get up, juice one or two cabbage leaves in a juicer or blender and you extract
one to two tablespoons of the cabbage juice and you drink that on an empty stomach. It’s
a fantastic tip. It’s a tip that’s won be a huge amount of fans in many different countries
around the world. I’ve got a lot of satisfied patients now just from that one tip alone,
so that’s a real gold nugget for you. If you’re taking Nexium or esomeprazole or any kind
of an acid blocker, you try that tip and then you get back to me and tell me how you went
with that tip. I’ll be very pleased to see the comments on this particular video for
people who’ve tried the cabbage juice trick. Cabbage juice goes back centuries for stomach
problems. It contains a substance in it that is superior to any acid blocking medication
you’ll find. Once you use it for a while and you’ve eradicated bugs, you should have no
more problem with acidity in your stomach. That’s my promise. You keep on trying the
cabbage juice. Stick with it for about three months. Every morning when you get up, one
to two tablespoons, empty stomach. Some people respond to potato juice, but I find the cabbage
juice to be superior. Thanks for watching my video today. I appreciate
it.

    Interesting my grandmother was recently diagnosed with h.pylori and I have candida and I'm might actually have h.pylori as well because she cooks my food and we use same utensils so I could be contaminated but question is can you cure h.pylori? Also make a video on h.pylori foods to eat and foods to avoid!

    The positive effect Cabbage juice has with ulcerlike symptoms is almost miraculous. It has definitely helped me immensely when I struggled with gerd in the past. Great tip! Garlic and honey together helps a lot too. No wonder Canxida works. It has quite a bit of garlic in it right?

    Love this video! I react to so many foods, I'm sure it's the h pylori. My question to you is even if I have bad reaction to garlic like sneezing etc, do you think your products would be safe for me to try? Thank you! I'm terrified to try the antibiotics they use to eradicate it.

    Hello Sir… I have H.Pylori Gastritis and Candida Esophagitis according to my Biopsy. I do not have any troubles from candida like trouble in swallowing or pain. but still I have nausea all the time and now my doctors advised me two non-antibiotics plus one anti fungal drug. I would like to know your opinion as which one shall be treated first? Gastritis or Candida? Also I will appreciate any of your suggestion to treat my disease. Waiting for reply. Thanks

    Doc a quick question. If I thought I had Candida for 4 years starting with h.pylori (GERD/reflux/bloating) type symptoms after first: In Thailand, working out suddenly too hard at the Gym and then from anti-biotics for a bug (chronic diarrhoea) in Thailand which I think caused Candida (mainly G.I and strong CNS) symptoms for 3+ years, and I have just started eating clean for two days (like paleo clean), but now instead of being insanely hungry 24/7 and eating disgusting amounts, now I am feeling full from a tiny amount of food like one apple in morning then two chicken thighs at lunch and not even feeling hungry 4-6 hours later (i did get tired though and sleep) do you think this could be h.pylori presenting instead of candida now that i've changed diet? Or just because I changed my diet? – do I need to eat more as I don't want to starve my nutrition when starting Candida Crusher. My comp stool test recently came back with FEW yeast (mild yeast infection) and 3+ Citrobacter freundii complex, I've only just realised it did not test for h.pylori so that's why i'm concerned and probably will get it tested but as you say tests are not great for HP so curious if you can spot anything in this pattern.

    Thanks! – I might need a consultation with you but i'd imagine you are booked up for years, if you can recommend someone good in UK/London that would be much appreciated.

    Edit: just read Candida Crusher ToC PDF (yeah it's George from Dropbox emails): Buying it now WOW WOW WOW it looks incredible. I'm gonna kick this (mutated) Candidas and possibly HP's proverbial ass it's ruined my life for too long. Thanks in advance Eric.

    Hey also you might want to check if you can get your book on Blinkist, it's a cool app for all aspects of self help and it summarises books, might be a nice channel for you to get exposure on. Not sure how they work financially but worth checking out if you wanna push your materials further.

    Hello Dr. Bakker, I went to your quiz page and scored 56 on the test, the results page suggested me to take Candida Remove. I've noticed an on and off again bloated and gassy feeling for only a year. This morning after eating papaya and banana I felt bloated in my stomach again, but it went away as the day went on. Even though my condition has improve with alternative medicine I'm still not back to 100%. I am glad I came across you and you information.

    I have h-pylori and have had it for a year now. My doctor misdiagnosed me and said I did not have it but now they are treating me for it. You are scaring me by saying that I have all kinds of health issues. I have candida as well now. Can I get better with the antibiotics they are going to put me on?? I have lost tons of weight. I need to start getting better.

    Is there a link between high risk hpv, candida and gastritis?

    I have high risk hpv but at the same time started getting candida on my lips, (just inflammation no sores, chelitis) candida causes your lips to become dry and so people tent to lick their lips then swallow, and after a few years i started getting chronic inflammation in my internal organs, chest, stomach, abdomen, and all the symptoms you describe. I cought gastritis at the time all these symptoms started appearing. Maybe there's some connection?
