The Hairdresser with a Yeast Infection

August 14, 2019

Greetings. I’ve got a interesting email here, a question
from Anilla, Anilla the hairdresser. Hello Eric. Thank you so much for your priceless videos. They’ve really helped me a lot. I’ve gotta ask you a question. I have a vaginal thrush. I work in a hair salon, and during the fall
season have allergies on chemicals. Can breathing in chemicals be the cause of
developing candida? No, not necessarily, but breathing in the
chemicals can cause a lot of different problems for your body, so it’s best that you work
in a salon now where they don’t use a lot of these toxic chemicals any more for like
perms, dyes, and bleaches, and stuff like that. Many salons now are looking at more natural
ways of hair and beauty care, so my recommendation is to certainly look down that pathway, you
know, to try and get away from chemicals. I’ve seen several hairdressers over the years
with all kind of dermatitis on their skin, and neck problems, and back problems, all
from standing for hours and poor postures. So yeah, be careful. Th yeast infection can be fixed up Anilla. You need to look at some of my videos on women’s
yeast infections where I talk about boric acid. I just did a video before on the three types
of cleansing phases for vaginal thrush, you know, how you start off there really with
a bit of Manuka honey, or if you can’t get that, you could also try some colloidal silver
or some tea tree oil suppositories. Then I talk about apple cider vinegar for
cleansing and rinsing, and then yogurt for the soothing and cooling application at the
end. But boric acid works exceptionally well for
cleansing that whole vaginal area and for just really making sure there’s no bacteria
or yeast in there. It just cleans it right up. The chemicals themselves won’t really help
you develop candida, but they can create a big weakness for the immune system, but you
need to be careful. You need to be careful because if you’re reacting
to chemicals now, you could slowly lead into MCS or multiple chemical sensitivity. So I’d recommend that you maybe take a break
from that salon, and go and work somewhere else, or do something differently so you don’t
build up a powerful resistance to these chemicals. If you do get really sick like that, your
immune system is gonna get increasingly weak, and then you’ll be much more vulnerable to
not just candida, but a whole raft of different potential problems. So yeah, be careful of the chemicals. That’s my recommendation. And check out my videos on women’s yeast infections. Thanks for question.

    Hi dr I have a few questions , I have Candida and I’ve been doing the strict diet for 7 months is now a good time to start to add new foods I’ve lost so much weight it’s scary at this point .. also I’ve read it’s safe to bake with coconut flour and almond flour is it safe to use baking powder or baking soda ? I’m paralyzed now with food choices and feel so much anxiety over it. Also what should I be taking in terms of Antifungal supplements “ I’ve read that they shouldn’t be taken long term ? Also can I have pumpkin ? If you could please answer my questions I would appreciate it

    I have a question. I am wondering if you have heard of turpentine curing candida? I've seen a few videos on YouTube saying that it can work but it sounds dangerous and it doesn't seem like a common practice for a Candida cleanse. I would love to get your thoughts on this. Thanks
