Is Candida Connected To Auto Immune Disorders?

August 26, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand,
author of Candida Crusher, and formulator of the CanXida range of supplements. Thank you so much for checking out my video
today. We’re going to talk today about autoimmune
disorders and Candida. The question I have from a person here: “Is
Candida connected to autoimmune disorders?” Well, the interesting thing is most people
with autoimmune disorders who I check out and do stool testing with, I find have got
a yeast infection, a big problem with Candida. In fact, in many cases, we can actually culture
the Candida in the stool in all three samples. We can find it dead through microscopy in
the stool test. We can even identify the different types of
Candida in the stool test, particularly Candida glabrata or parapsilosis, but we commonly
find Candida Albicans. Now a study released in the Lancet medical
journal some years ago discovered that the cell wall of Candida contains a protein which
is not dissimilar to gluten. HWP-1 protein. Many researchers have found this protein to
be very, very similar to gluten in its dimensions and its configuration. So if you think about it, if you’ve got two
things masquerading the same particularly when it comes to the immune system, and if
one thing like gluten is particularly linked to upregulating the immune system with many
people, it’s going to create a problem if the other thing is almost like a clone of
it. This is exactly what they found with Candida. Now we know with gluten is a big problem for
many people. Many people cannot tolerate gluten. They cannot break gluten down, the protein,
and their immune system actually starts to attack it and cause an immune dysregulation. In some cases, this can create diarrhea, constipation,
and in other conditions it can create severe brain fog or tiredness like fatigue. It can also create chronic pain and inflammation,
because it can upregulate a whole cascade of different inflammatory mediators in the
immune system. So there is a definitely link with a yeast
infection, a Candida problem, and gluten. So watch out there. The connection can definitely be there. Candida can be connected to autoimmune disorders
and it commonly is. Just like we commonly find Candida connected
with many cancer cases. Japanese researchers found that nearly all
cancer patients have got a Candida problem in fact. It’s not fair to say that Candida caused the
cancer, but we can definitely see the connection there. Autoimmune disorders are quite incredible
and they’re formidable, and I’m going to do a series-not today, but I’m going to do several
videos on autoimmune disorders and explain a bit more about the concept of autoimmunity
and how I see that. The things I think you need to do as a person
with an autoimmune condition, are A: try and find the source of the problem and B: try
and correct it, because many autoimmune conditions can be seriously improved with natural medicine. When it comes to pharmaceutical medicine,
all they’re looking for really are drugs like steroids to reduce pain and inflammation,
but that’s not really good. I’ve said it all before: it’s like giving
someone who can’t make money just keep giving them credit. And if you give people credit long enough,
they’ll hang themselves. It’s the same with autoimmunity. If you keep treating people with drugs for
lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Sjogren’s disease, eventually they’ll end
up in really, really deep hot water and you don’t want to be in deep water and especially
not deep hot water. So, I hope that explains a little bit of my
views on Candida and autoimmune disorders. There’s definitely a connection. If you haven’t got my report, please click

    I remember reading that the only true gluten sensitivity (not intolerance only) test to definitively diagnose accurately is through a test done via the cartgaroid artery which is not available in Australia-USA only.
    My belief on it is it is not the gluten but the poor quality of grains, processing, (chemtrailed) polluted soil and the yeast that cause the inflammation. Don't eat gluten free products (over processed) and don't eat things that are a substitute copy of what should contain gluten-like bread. Eat pumpernickel instead (of course with lots of organic butter on it)
    I have been tested four times for gluten intolerance and always comes back NO (no celiac disease either) yet I have autoimmune disease (thyroid), candida, multiple allergies.
    I am so over practitioners trying to make ME wrong and blaming me for my disease through diet because THEY can't fix me and because I am not responding to their meds. It is simply not true, we are being poisoned by our rulers because of the depopulation agenda. I was poisoned by radioactive iodine which is supposed to be the "cure" and I believe this made me worse. It feels like heavy metal poisoning has been inflicted upon me by this procedure. So many aspects to consider….

    Dr. Bekker, what are your thoughts on the candida MS connection? Thank you, once again, for all your efforts!

    Thank you for making these videos, my mother has rheumatoid arthritis and sjogrens, and there is also Graves' disease in my family, I'm only 25 but for years I've been chronically tired and brain fogged / dizzy, also have pretty bad eczema, I've cut out dairy and gluten but I feel I need to totally cut out Grains too as things like oats and Corn upset my stomach somewhat, I think I may have leaky gut, if I accidentally eat dairy I get a terrible rash,

    Hi Eric, the Candida remove is definitely a great product. Every time i use it, my psoriasis starts to flare up. I know it could probably be Candida trying to resist it but is there anyway I can prevent this? I keep losing hair from the itchy scalp.

    I have taken your quiz online – very helpful! Can you recommend me the best multivitamin for young men (24yrs old)? The quiz says I should take one but does not specify how long I should be on it.

    Doc, I'm going for a herpes test because I may have it or a yeast infection (Candida and Balanitis). Will the herpes test be able to tell the difference?

    To hell with drugs – I've been prescribed steroids by ALL gps, and other rubbish by standard dermatologists, for years, for my scalp inflammation, and consequent hair loss and its worsened significantly over the years. Now I've been diagnosed with lupus (scalp inflammation, fever, recurring mouth ulcers, fatigue, headaches). Look forward to your advice on natural remedies for lupus because I'm certainly not taking what the dermatologist prescribes.. thank you Eric and God bless you.

Please let me know, we would sure appreciate it very much.PS: have you ever heard about auto immune atrophic gastritis before?
