How Do I Know If I Have Candida In My Gut?

August 17, 2019

do I know if I have Candida in my gut? So
how do I know if Candida is affecting my digestive system? What are the signs and symptoms? How
is it recognizable? There are different ways for you to determine
if you’ve got a yeast infection in your digestive system, but one of the big things that you
need to be looking for is what I call fermentation dysbiosis. Fermentation dysbiosis is not a
new concept. This concept was basically originated by various digestive experts. People like
Dr. Liz Lipsky, for example, quite a well-known author and expert in digestive health. There
are many other books. As you can see behind me, there are quite a few books. Many other
authors I’ve read, studied and looked at, they talk about four or five kinds of dysbiosis,
so “dys” meaning bad “biosis” meaning life, so “bad life” in the gut. Dysbiosis can generally
mean poor bacteria, yeast infection, bloating, farting or gas, burping or a lot of air coming
up. These are all signs of fermenting in the gut. When you think about it, Candida loves sugar.
It loves warmth. It loves moisture. It loves darkness. It’s a mold. It’s a fungus. It needs
these things, and the gut provides the perfect place for Candida. There’s a lot of food there.
There’s a lot of warmth there. There’s a lot of moisture there. So get yourself a jar of
jam, for example, or a piece of bread and put a little bit of jam on it or a very sweet
spread and put it somewhere in a warm, dark place and what are you going to find in a
few days? You’re going to find mold growing on it. But if you put that same piece of bread
– you put a bit of honey on it, you won’t get the mold because they can’t grow in honey,
for example, because of the peroxide value of the different chemicals in there that the
Candida is averse to. It all depends on the environment. The nutrients that Candida feed
on and the environment to allow it to feed and the gut is the perfect place for that
to occur. The vagina is a perfect place for that to occur. The groin for jock itch, the
toenails, these are all perfect environments for Candida. How do you recognize it in the gut? How you
recognize it in the gut, you look at the bloating. People will say to me, I feel like I’m three
months’ pregnant later in the day. These are things I hear some women tell me or a guy
will say, I’ve got this big gut I can’t get rid of. Have a couple of beers and I burp
and I’m fat and I bloat. I noticed this with my father for many years
when I was a young guy growing up that dad would eat cookie after cookie after cookie.
He would eat 15 or 20 cookies. He would have a cup of coffee with three/four teaspoons
of white sugar in it. He would eat six or seven scoops of ice cream. Dad had an insatiable
craving for sugary foods, and dad was always bloating. He was always burping and he used
to fart like a horse. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard a horse or a sheep fart, but man,
they can fart. These animals can really fart. It’s a prolonged fart, which means there’s
a lot of trapped gas inside that intestine. When you’ve got a lot of fermentation, you’ve
got lots of farting. Lots of bloating. Burping, to a lesser extent. Burping occurs for other
reasons, which I’ll talk about in another video, but generally bloating and gas are
two primary things that you would look at for the gut. Other more covert ways that Candida will present
itself will be food allergies and what we call “leaky gut” syndrome. Leaky gut we’ll
describe in a consequent video. But, yeah, bloating and gas would be the big ones, and
the other one would be craving sugar. Wanting sweet foods, developing lots of gas and bloating,
and the other one that you need to look for would be constipation or diarrhea or alternating,
which is typical irritable bowel syndrome we commonly see with Candida as well. The
diet becoming narrower and narrower in scope because the patient can’t tolerate certain
foods. He’ll become increasing intolerant because of leaky gut. Allergies develop. Bloating
gets worse. And that could become commoner symptoms like the skin itching, vaginal thrush
flaring up, so often Candida with many people will start centrally and spread out peripherally.
They’ll often have bloating on and off for a few months. Guys will laugh and joke about
gas and bloating and think that it’s quite normal, but fermentation dysbiosis is not
good. Many experts believe that death starts in
the bowel. If you look at guys like Dr. Norman Walker and a lot of the old experts, Dr. Birdie
Jensen, people who really understood the gut function, colonics and cleansing, always said
the same thing. Death begins in the colon. Toxic disease begins in the bowel, and what
comes before that? Yeast infection is one of the prime things that gets in there. All
Aids patients when they die have got yeast infection. Many people who die of cancer have
got yeast infection, so we know that yeast infection is a contributing factor to a lot
of chronic disease. If you don’t want to go down that route, get
the gut cleaned up and follow my three-stage Candida Crusher diet because it’s going to
get rid of the Candida. Thanks for tuning in.

    funny but so true…..

    This is exactly what's happening to me.  I've made an appointment with a naturopath.  A medical doctor is not going to know anything about this from what I've seen.  They are useless!

    Hi Doctor, 
    I have been on a clean strict diet for a month and I still have all the same symptoms. One thing I am not able to eliminate is mold in the building where I live and I think that it's causing me allergy big time. One naturopath told me that the outside environment should not affect the body when its healthy and the food is right. 
    I would like to know your opinion if I will be able improve with time while continuing living in a moldy environment ?

    Hi doctor,
    I've struggled with severe bloating for 3 years now on and off. Recently I had a severe flair up followed by severe brain fog. The fog has stuck for 3 months now. Are these tale tale signs of a candida overgrowth? Thanks.

    Hello sir. I was curious as to if I had candida symptoms. For about a week my stool will more times than not have a yellow mucus attached both to the stool and floating alone. But I haven't felt any other candida symptoms AT ALL. Could this be candida ?

But the other symptoms of diarrhea sometimes , soft stools for 20 years still going on.

    Hi, Erik. I have been working for a month now with the Candida diet to get rid of a vaginal infection- experimenting as you always say. Before the Candida diet I never really had stomach issues such as bloating , gas or burping. During the course of the diet, like a week ago I developed gas, burping and bloating. Not sure what to make of it ? Thank you for your wonderful videos!!!
