My Oral Yeast Still Persists Regardless!

August 12, 2019

Greetings, Erik Bakker from New Zealand, the
naturopath. I have another question here from a subscriber. I feel that most of my symptoms from Candida
have gone away in the last three years, since I have treated it with a variety of herbs,
example, oil of oregano, berberi, grapefruit seed, etc., an oral thrush persists despite
coconut oil, oregano oil pulling, tongue scraping, Pittman oil, but I also wonder if the fluoride
in toothpaste kills good bacteria, which could be harmful to oral health. Well, I would like to see what kind of diet
you’ve got, what you’re eating on a daily basis but I’d also like to see what your adrenal
health is like, what your overall eating patterns are like, energy patterns, sleeping patterns
all those kinds of things are very important. It’s not just about what you eat and how you
treat, it’s about how you live your life, so a whole other effectors make up for digestive
health. The state of your autonomic nervous system,
do you feel more stressed and relaxed, do you spend enough time relaxing, exercising,
doing things apart from work especially if you are a computer-based person. So there’s lots of commentary about treatment,
oil pulling and all the things that you’re doing, brushing, scraping all this stuff. There’s a lot of oral based stuff that you’re
doing, but what about other things in your life that you may not be doing for example,
okay, it’s very important. Fluoride in toothpaste kills good bacteria. I don’t know about that, I know many people
who use toothpaste with fluoride in it, they don’t have any problems at all. I’m not going to get into political debates
about fluoride, pro or con things like that. I prefer to drink water without chlorine or
fluoride in it with a water filter and I recommend everybody do that. Each to their own. I know that many people who do drink water
with chlorine and fluoride with it and they don’t have any health problems. And I know many other people who say they
do get health problems so that’s up to the individual. I would tend to use more natural kinds of
toothpaste like with baking soda in it, not the commercial ones, I wouldn’t recommend
you buy the commercial toothpaste anyway. I don’t like all that names of chemicals you
can’t even pronounce, I don’t think it’s a good idea. I’d also say what are you doing in terms of
cultured and fermented foods. Are you putting any of these in your diet,
like yogurt or kefir, sauerkraut, what are you doing there? Are you eating foods that are conducive towards
building good bacterial health in the gut. I just did a video on prebiotic foods, for
example, are you eating all of these? Are you chewing foods properly? Have you got good dental health? What are your cortisol levels like? What is your immune function like? Do you get sore throats? Do you get any other kind of health issues
at all? So it’s not just about the persistent oral
yeast it’s about your overall health. There’s a picture here that we need to look
at. So maybe I’m not as helpful as I could be
with this question but if you give me some more information maybe I could be. Thanks for the question, anyway

    Can oral thrush sometimes get worse before it gets better?

    Great video. Had the same question but with toe and finger rashes/itching? This has been a killer for me during my treatment process and a symptom that seems to persist no matter what I do!
