Swedish Bitters for Candida: What Is Your Opinion On Swedish Bitters?

August 25, 2019

Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath. How are you all going out there? We’re going to talk about Swedish Bitters
today. I’ve been working with Swedish Bitters for
a long time now, probably 30 years and I’ve been taking it since I was a teenager myself. Swedish Bitters is an amazing formula and
that’s the topic today. What is your opinion about Swedish Bitters? Swedish Bitters has been around since the
1540s. That’s a long time, guys. That’s like 460 years or something. That’s a long time for one herbal medicine. It’s probably the world’s, longest known herbal
medicine still in use today. Did they have Prozac in 1540? Probably not. Did they have western medicine in 1540? I don’t think they did. There were no pill pushers. There were no pharmaceutical drugs back then,
but there were Swedish Bitters and it worked. A long time ago, there was quite a smart guy
called Paracelsus and Paracelsus thought he was smarter than Celsus, so he called himself
Paracelsus. He was actually full of himself this guy. Theophrastus von Hohenheim, big long name,
puffed up ego, incredible guy. The first guy that actually started to work
with chemistry and married science, chemistry, and biology with medicine. He was also the first guy that said, �A
poison all depends on the dose. Something small, Paracelsus said, �could
be an incredibly powerful medicine, but when taken too much, it could kill.� In fact,
a lot of Hardiman’s beliefs and philosophies, and Samuel Hardiman was the guy who came up
with homeopathy. Hardiman’s beliefs were based on the work
of Paracelsus was an infinitely intellectual man who lived a long time ago. Before Google. Before Facebook. Before he had distractions from all the crap
that we’ve got today out there. He actually was a thinking man. He came up with an amazing formula called
Swedish Bitters. Think about the word �bitters�. It’s got many different herbs in it that have
a fantastic effect on the digestive system. If there’s one medicine you want to take to
restore gut function, this is the golden ticket you’ve been looking for, but you need to get
the right kind of Swedish Bitters. It’s got myrrh in it, it’s got camphor in
it, it’s got many different herbs in it that have a really good effect on killing, on cleansing. It’s very powerful. You need to take care with it. One drop maybe all you start with and you
can eventually build up to four or five milliliters, so it’s small amount. I think it’s less than quarter of an ounce
a dose. Drop doses are fine. What would you use Swedish Bitters for? You would use it for digestive restoration. You would use it to stimulate a stomach that’s
slack and lazy and needs stimulating. You would use it increase pancreatic function. You would use it to get rid of Candida, parasites,
bacteria. But remember, it’s powerful and you need to
have a lot of respect for Swedish Bitters. For many people who first start taking it,
they don’t like it because they get aggravations. You can start with a low dose and gradually
build up and use it as a course of treatment for three or four months or more. I prefer Swedish Bitters to be used in low
dose long term, rather than high dose short term. It will also have a nice effect on the colon
itself. There are particular herbs in there that allow
proper fermentation of food residues in the colon contributing to very good levels of
beneficial bacteria. In some sense, it almost acts like a prebiotic. It doesn’t act like a probiotic because it
allows food to be better digested and absorbed, it allows better fermentation of food residues
in the bowel leading to better production of good bacteria. I like Swedish Bitters. I really support it. I would’ve loved to have known Theophrastus
von Hohenheim. I’m not sure if I would’ve like the guy’s
ego. He sounds a bit like Donald Trump. I see Trump came into it again. I would’ve loved to be around in those days
when astrology was married to medicine. Today it’s seen as quackery. Think about it. Swedish Bitters. Been around a long time. Still works today and it’ll be around another
500 years. Thanks for tuning in. Oh, forgot to say. Is it good for Candida? Yes, it is. But you need to take care. In the early stages when you’re going to treat
a Candida infection, it may not be the best thing to use. You’re better off using a product that’s an
anti-fungal/anti-microbial initially. Check out CanXida Remove that I developed. It’s a nice product to start cleaning up the
gut. When you start improving, if you really want
to finish off the gut and get it to a high level of health, think of Swedish Bitters. Let’s try again. Thanks for tuning in.

    Dear Eric, I am big fun of yours from Italy. 23 years old, Here because I am trying to fight Candida's poison through a liver detox procedure. I just bought online a package of herbs (only) to make S. Bitters on my own. The original recipe is alcoholic. Should I make it original or better with only water?
    Greetings from Europe!

    I've been making sweden bitter for over 30 years, it's not only for stomach problems.
    If someone was to have an eye infection, conjunctivites, one can do an eye compress.Put some sweden bitter on 4-5 cosmetic pads ,then lay it o
    n the closed eyelid, don't press it because of the alcolol.Use an eye mask to keep the cosmetic pads in place.Do this for 1 hour,it works.
    Sweden bitter is universal,,Look up the points about sweden bitter from Maria Treben.
    Read the book, health through God's pharmacy.
    It tells you how to make it.
    I always lay the sweden bitter bottles on the central heating for 14 days to set. Sweden bitter needs warmth to set. Shaking the bottles twice a day.
    The small recipe is good enough.It tastes better than the large recipe.

    Hello Eric, I have found I have Cyclospora, and have been taking Canxida Remove and Restore for only a week so far, as you said Swedish Bitters can kill parasites too, should I take a small dose now with the Canxida, or wait several weeks? Many Thanks

    Hello. Can bitters be taken long term in your opinion? I heard they can flush out electrolytes etc from your system if used many months? Thanks.
