Is Tea Tree Oil Good For Candida?

August 12, 2019

Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker again. Author of Candida Crusher and formulator of
the Canxida range of supplements. Thank you as usual for checking out my video. I really appreciate you checking out my video. Today, we’re going to talk about tea tree
oil. In particular, Australian tea tree oil. Australian tea tree oil has been around for
a long, long time. In fact, the Australian aborigines, the indigenous
population of Australia have been living in their continent for about 60,000 years, so
a long time some particular tribes migrated from Asia down, Gondwanaland where all the
continents were still formed as one big land mass and they drifted apart. The aborigines basically started to really
camp out in Australia. Naturally, they started to use all kinds of
different plants, animals and different things for medicines. We believe that Australian tea tree oil is
possibly been used for tens of thousands of years. The indigenous people like many people gained
a lot of this wisdom, which they passed down from generation to generation. Australian tea tree oil, melaleuca alternifolia
has always been traditionally used for respiratory tract infection where they would crush the
leaves and boil it in water and inhale that. They would use it on cuts, wounds and bites. Spear wounds are quite common. Also bites from animals and infections. The aborigines used this quite wisely. In 1923, there was an Australian government
chemist by the name of Arthur Penfold. Back in the 20s a very popular antiseptic
to use by doctors was something called carbolic acid. What Mr. Penfold discovered when he analyzed
all these different natural plants is that the melaleuca alternifolia was nine to ten
times more potent as an antiseptic agent than carbolic acid was. The government became very excited and by
the 1930s and 1940s, it was in widespread use throughout Australia. All the houses contained a bottle tea tree
oil. This was pre-pharmacy days, where all the
chemical companies started profiting. People used it for sore feet, ulcers, blisters,
infections, sunburns, and insect bites. They used it for all kinds of stuff. Gum diseases it was popular, tin ear, athletes
foot, jock itch. It was the normal medicine used. In fact, it was so effective that the government
basically had every soldier take a bottle of tea tree oil away to war to be used for
all kinds of infections. Then, of course, when pharmaceutical companies
became big, it basically just about all died off. Then, by the 1960s, the tea tree oil industry
was all wiped out. In 1976, there was a guy called Eric White. What Eric did is he wanted to revive this
industry knowing how powerful this product really was. He searched around and found this particular
part of northern New South Wales called Bangerwell and Swamp, particularly a swamp that he thought
would be the best area for growing the ultimate Australian tea tree oil. He lobbied up to four years with a local government
to try to get a crown lease on the land. Eventually, he got this lease on a Thursday. They called it Thursday Plantation. That’s where the name of the company comes
from. I love this story. I really support this company and I think
it’s a fantastic product. Thursday Plantation Australian tea tree oil. I may have a bottle of it laying around in
my cupboard. I usually keep a bottle. I think it’s one of the most amazing of all
natural medicines you can use for fungal diseases. Research in western Australian in the 1990s
showed that tea tree oil gel, particularly on tinea, was more effective than any kind
of pharmaceutical to be used. Particularly with Candida. It was number one for Candida out of anything,
including even Lamisil. Lamisil was a little bit more powerful for
trichophyton rubrum, which is a particular fungal species we find in there with jock
itch or a particular kind of foot fungus such as tinea. But when it came to Candida, it was number
one. Nothing can beat tea tree oil in terms of
its po’s really used for external application. I’ve got no doubt you can use it internally
like oregano oil, a drop at a time. I often take it myself internally, but it’s
not something I recommend for the average patient to do. Oregano oil, food grade, should be perfectly
fine to do. Not quite as potent as the Australian tea
tree oil, but I would say pretty good match this. We have got certain types of oregano now that
we found in the Mediterranean that actually exceed the ability to kill fungi that tea
tree oil. They’ve only been discovered probably in the
last five years or so. What can you use Australian tea tree oil for? Well, if you look at Chapter 5 in my Candida
Crusher book, it’s a perfect thing to use for vaginal cleansing. You used to be able to get a water soluble
version, but it’s very hard to get now, but you can still add a few drops to quite warm
water and then let that cool a bit and use that as a douche. You can also use it on feet. You can use it for jock itch. You can use it for ear. You can use it for scalp. You can use it for nails. It’s very good for toenails. You put one drop every day on the toenail
bed. It will slowly penetrate and get in around
there and it will get rid of quite stubborn infections. Topically, it’s fantastic. This company, Thursday Plantation, makes soaps,
shampoos, all sorts of moisturizers, so you can certainly use it on your skin. I use it for acne for people, cuts, bites,
burns, stings, anything like that at all. It’s a superb product. If you do use tea tree oil, make sure you
use Australian melaleuca alternifolia. It has a very characteristic smell about it. Do hunt down the Thursday Plantation. It’s quite a good one to use. I hope that gives you a bit of an insight
into Australian tea tree oil and Candida. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t forget to click on the link below this

    Do you offer any tea tree oil on canxida site?

    When you mention internal, you mean that it is viable for dealing with an oral yeast infection right?

    Thanks for this video. How would you recommend taking the pure tea tree oil, internally, if one were to try a couple of drops. Would you take it at any particular time of day, after food or empty stomach or does it matter? Thanks

    What is the name of the Company that you mention it to get the Teatree oil from

    Hey, I took few oregano oil drops with one single drop of tea tree oil in a cup of water and drank it before bed, felt alright, but after few minutes, it made me feel very sick and scared, i had a very high heart rate, sweating, and feeling of posion in my body. I couldn't sleep and thought I might end up at the hospital, I took oregano oil before internally, but never tea tree oil. I just want to say, think twice before drinking it, and if so, don't take one drop, take 1% of a drop.

    Hello Eric! Can I use this tea tree oil when diluted with some other oil (e.g. raw coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil or oil from raw almond perhaps)? I want to relieve the itch meanwhile I'm doing all the other stuff you're teaching us!😊 What if there's some crack in my mucous membrane, is tea tree oil not to recommend down there (I was almost going to write down under, connected to that you are in Australia, hehe… sorry absolutely no offense!😊)?

    Thank you for sharing all your knowledge!!❤ Love from Sweden

    I used this on candida that got into my nail bed from scratching a yeast infection on my groin too much and literally watched the infection battle and heal in a few days. It fucked that fungi up! Be careful on the nether regions though, it's very corrosive on the mucous membranes and private parts. Dilute it first in something else and put only a little bit.
