How Do You Know When Candida Is Gone?

August 19, 2019

How do you know when Candida is gone? How
do you know when your yeast infection is no more? How do you know when your health has
improved to the point where you can relax and not worry about thinking, Oh, my goodness.
I’ve got a yeast infection.Well, if you think about it, it’s not really hard to answer that
question, is it? The way you’ll know is you’ll start feeling a lot better inside yourself.
The symptoms will improve. You’ve probably heard me talk before about
a symptom tracker. It’s important for you to track your symptoms on a regular basis.
I developed a Candida symptom tracker that’s in my book, Candida Crusher. I’m not sure
if you’ve got a copy of this book yet, but the book’s got a huge amount of information
in it, all about the different signs and symptoms of Candida and, particularly, I’ve created
this form called the “Symptom Tracker” that you can record your symptoms down on the left
side or tick the appropriate ones and add your own down at the bottom. And then each
week in the columns, track your symptoms over a 12-week period. Each symptom can get graded
one, two or three, mild, moderate or severe, so what you’ll find is as you obviously improve,
your score starts decreasing. The severity rating goes down, so the threes become twos,
become ones, eventually over time, but what you’ll also find is other people will pick
it up in you. If you’re in a relationship or if you’ve got close friends or family around
you, they’re going to notice some changes in you.
Generally, I believe in what’s called “Hering’s Law of Cure.” There was a doctor a long time
ago called Dr. Hering, a famous homeopath, and Dr. Hering believed that symptoms disappear
in the reverse order of onset. So let’s just say you had a headache 10 or 15 years ago
that developed and it’s been on and off there for about 10 or 15 years. And then you had
a symptom develop more recently, say a lot of bloating or flatulence, but that’s only
happened two or three years ago. Well, if you think about it, that’s probably going
to disappear before the headache is. The digestive problem is probably going to clear up and
get better before the headache will clear up and get better, and that’s how the body
works. It gets rid of symptoms in this particular manner, so the symptoms you had a long time
ago are usually the last ones to go. In some cases, we can even see a return of all symptoms,
so you may not have had a headache for 10 or 15 years, and then as you recover, the
headaches may come back, which may freak you right out. This is actually a favorable sign.
Homeopathic physicians a long time ago were very clever in observing patients, particularly
their recovery from chronic illness and worked a lot of these things out. I always am quite
happy when a patient gets a return of all symptoms. Many times these symptoms come back
because the patient suppressed them originally with a pharmaceutical drug. They took some
kind of pill or drug and the symptom went away. As they recovered and detoxified and
cleared rubbish out of their body, the symptom came back.
Now doctors laugh at these sort of things, but I couldn’t care less what doctors say
when it comes to recovery of patients. Because my only relationship in healing is with the
patient. The patient pays me a fee. The patient makes some sort of contract with me they want
to get well. I partner with that person. I couldn’t give two hoots what doctors or specialists
say. I couldn’t care less if they say it’s placebo or it’s only a temporary recovery.
Who cares? Because if the patient feels well and they’re happy and their quality of life
comes back, that’s all I care about. And I know when Candida is gone when that patient
starts making monumental changes in their life as a result of their improvement. I’ve
seen patients get remarried and take on promotions, start a family, all these things. Now people
don’t do those things and really feel happy about it unless their health comes back.
So call it placebo, call if what you want, I couldn’t care less. If a patient feels great,
that’s what matters to me regardless of the therapy that we use to get that patient to
that position. Right? We must never forget that the word “doctorea”
or “doctor” means to teach or teaching, so it’s important to teach our patients how to
get well and the steps they need to take to recover. The true healers do that. They don’t
care about the money. They don’t look at the ego or the methods of healing. They look at
how the patient is and if they’re recovering or not, and they take impediments away. By
taking impediments away, obstacles to cure, the patient will improve, and that’s all that
matters. And that’s when the patient will improve when they’ve made those changes in
life. They’ve taken those barriers away. Good health only comes from change. It doesn’t
come from pills or drugs or surgery. It comes from change. Usually a change the patient
has made. So I hope that answers your question. Thanks
for tuning in.

    Love this guy! All of his philosophies are my own as well. I'm stimulating my lymphatic system and working on my digestion/absorption/elimination/candida all with delicious foods, herbs, teas, exercise, and enzyme/pro biotic supplements. It's about clearing highway congestion, not just fixing potholes.

    Eric, would you say that you know your candida is gone when you start seeing some positive mood changes?

    Hey! What an informative video. Your videos help me a lot to understand about my candida problem and how to fight against it. Thanks a lot.
    Also, I was wondering if candida causes acne on face?

    How does one get a copy of your book? All I've seen available is a PDF. I prefer the written copy. Thanks

    Thanks for that..
    All the bloating disappeared and about 3 weeks in I’m getting bloated again. Could be a diet change but it hasn’t been anything drastic or necessarily negative unless adding tea with stevia is bad. We’ll see but I’m thinking it might just be intermittent symptoms

    Hi, I'm a new subbie & just found out i have Candida. I had all, or at least 99% of the symptoms 4 the last yr., including vocal loss but never once was tested until 2wks ago by my new doctor. After testing me she got the results and told me it was positive, but then that's all. So I don't know what to do, eat, etc. I'm on Nystatin 3xs a day but that's all i know. Please help me.

    Man I'm really confused lots of people say you need to not eat meet on candida diet and eat fruits to make your body alkaline, because they say candida can live without sugar for very long time. They say you need to give them fruits so they come out of hiding and they die. What's true please tell me ?

    You're a great guy, Dr. Bakker! You show true love and compassion for your fellow man, and try to help him out of genuine concern, and not money, like so many regular doctors. I'm so glad I found you! I wish I lived in NZ! 🙂
