How Do You Know If You Have Systemic Candida?

August 28, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker. Naturopath. Author of Candida Crusher. Formulator of the CanXida range of supplements. Today we’re going to talk about systemic yeast
infection. How do you know if you’ve got a systemic yeast
infection? You’ll know. To start with, you won’t be on this computer
listening to this video, unless you’re in a hospital bed. You’ll probably have serious fever and chills
and especially if they’re non responsive to medication. As I mentioned in a previous video, this is
a commonly confused area where a lot of people I see actually believe they’ve got systemic
Candida. They haven’t got systemic Candida at all. They’ve got a gastrointestinal yeast infection. I’m going to read out a list I’ve got up here
of the people who are more prone to getting a systemic yeast infection. People with a central venous catheter put
in the chest or in your neck if you’re in hospital. You’ve got a line there. Often just by putting this line in alone makes
you a sitting duck for a yeast infection. Many healthcare workers actually transfer
Candida from one patient to another. Just being in a hospital alone significantly
increases your risk of a systemic yeast infection. Don’t go to the hospital. Try and keep out of these damn things. Patients in the Intensive Care Unit with a
lot of invasive procedures have a higher risk. People who have weakened immune systems for
example. Organ transplant, HIV/AIDS, on cancer chemotherapy. People who’ve taken broad spectrum antibiotics. Why would you even want to take antibiotics
in the first place? I’ve talked many times how ridiculous it is
that people get them for a cut on their finger and get put for 10 days on penicillin. Just use flipping tea tree oil. It’s going to work. People who have a very low neutrophil count. Neutropenia is a condition we find often with
people with suppressed immune function. This very commonly occurs with people on various
medications. People who have kidney failure or are on hemodialysis
are also at a higher risk. People who have got diabetes and also people
who’ve had different kinds of surgeries are more prone. Have you noticed how a lot of these things
I’m saying are linked with the medical system? Operations, medications. So once you get sick, there is a high chance
you could get sicker and sicker. I believe that hospitals are not a good place
to get well. It’s good to stay out of the hospital. Hospitals have the potential to make you sicker. They’re a great place for broken bones or
if you’ve fallen while drunk and you’ve fallen off a balcony or something like that, then
you need to go to hospital. You’ve cut your hand off with a power saw,
then you need to go to hospital. Things like that. But be careful, because many medical procedures
if you can avoid them, may be linked with seriously weakening your immune system and
increasing your risk. There are many super infections in hospitals
now. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen
that had a medical procedure who’ve come out of hospital, and who have never been well
since. Could take six or twelve months to get them
back in full health again. So, how do you know if you’ve got a systemic
yeast infection? You’re going to be seriously sick if you’ve
got one. Chances are you probably won’t have one, you’ll
have a gastrointestinal yeast infection, or you’ll have a vaginal one or toenail or jock
itch or other kind of skin infection, but you probably won’t have one affecting you
systemically. They diagnose by blood test. It’ll be picked up in a couple of days. You’ll get the lab report back. That’s how you know if you’ve got one. I’d be careful of people who also believe
they can diagnose yeast infection with live blood cell analysis. I don’t really believe that it’s possible
to do that, and if you do go to a practitioner who does live blood cell analysis and tells
you, “You’ve got Candida in your bloodstream!” I’d be very wary of those kinds of people,
because I can’t see a lot of science behind that. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link below in

    I've read recently candida is the result of an underlying cause/infection such as Lyme or mold poisoning… How much truth is there to that statement

    Thanks so much, you just gave me so muc relief lol. I do have candida symptoms and was starting to worry if it was systematic because I know that can be deadly and compared to what you said about systematic candida symptoms mine aren't too bad

    How can you say about people who Seek medical treatment, and have asked about a candida infection, who have been miss-diagnosed, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, by the NHS. And private blood test's showed High levels of Candida Albicans. Once you've been diagnosed by the H with Fibromyalgia' there;s no going back, there are very few people in this world who can help, and you can be one of them, but but realise this: not everyone has spare cash to pay out.
    Thanks .

    I was prescribed penicillin for 10 days when I had tonsillitis a few years ago. Could psoriasis return and become even more severe from just 10 days use of penicillin?

    Do you recommend removal of the catheter for one with systematic candida?

    Hi eric I have a issue that is not to do with candida but parasites. Myself and my children that are 5 and 2 have a very bad infestation with parasites. Our bodies are riddle with them. I have tried a naturopath, the medication from the pharmacy, olive leaf and moringa. I believe they have not worked as because our colons are badly damaged from this infestation. I am asking you if you could help as I really need it! I am no longer able to afford a naturopath as my husband and I have separated and I am on the sole parent benefit, something I am not to happy with and am lost as to what to do. I know this is a long shot but if you could please help in any way I would be forever grateful. my email address is [email protected] and my contact is 02041470810. I am really desperate which is why I have made this public. I really need some direction as I don't know what to do. thank you for reading my post .

    I heard that candida can travel into tissue and spread to different tissues in the body. Is that systemic? Can it travel from the intestines into other tissues? Thank you
