I Am Addicted To Sugar And Soda Drinks Could This Be Causing My Yeast Infection?

August 16, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher, with another question. A question I get asked from time to time. Eric, I eat a lot of sugar. I’m addicted to
sugar. I’m addicted to soda drinks. Could these be causing my yeast infection? Well, the very fact that you’ve got suspicion
makes me think that you probably know it is causing a problem. I’ve often said that the
foods and drinks that cause the most problems with people are the ones they’ve got the strongest
relationships to. So if you have an addiction, whether it is chocolate, bread, soda, whatever,
a choky bar, Twinkies; it could be one particular food that’s right in your way of recovery.
Then that is your problem food. It doesn’t matter how much you eat, it’s the fact that
you’ve got an addiction to this food. I’ve written in my book in great detail about
food and addictions, so I want you to think carefully about the foods that you’re addicted
to the most or that you have a strong relationship with or you like to eat, because these are
the foods that are going to create you the most problem. So it could be apples. I’ve got one patient
that eats five or six apples a day. That’s a problem. So when you think about food, it’s
a little bit like alcohol. It’s not how much alcohol you drink that determines if you’re
an alcoholic. It’s your relationship to alcohol. If you start thinking about wanting that drink
at 4 or 5 o’clock in the afternoon every day, that’s a problem. It’s the addiction, and
the addictions need to be treated. I talk a lot about eating for emotional comfort
and addictions, and these things need to be fixed up because they are often underpinning
your yeast infection. But they can also underpin your high blood pressure, your propensity
towards developing diabetes or many other diseases. So we’re not just talking yeast
infection here, we’re talking a whole lot of chronic ill health that you can avoid by
getting on top of this particular addiction. So, I eat a lot of sugar, I’m addicted to
it. Can this be causing my infection? Of course it can be, and these are the things that need
fixing up. Not how many pills can you take to eradicate your yeast infection, how many
probiotics can you take, what are the best foods to eat, forget all that bologna. You
need to get to the bottom of your yeast infection. And if it’s an addiction, this is what needs
treating. So I hope I’ve answered your question. Thanks
for the question.
