What Are The Signs I’m Recovering From A Yeast Infection?

August 17, 2019

Hi there, Eric Bakker here, naturopath. Here’s
a question from a lady called Mrs. Watson in Atlanta, America. What are the signs I’m recovering from a Candida
infection? Well, the way to answer that one is to probably
analyze the kind of symptoms and problems that you’ve had over the time and to see if
there’s any improvement in those or reversal of those symptoms. When I see patients with a chronic yeast infection,
I really like to obviously write down all the signs and symptoms that person’s presenting
with. And if you’re intelligent, what you’ll do
is create a symptom tracker. You’ll find this in my book and I haven’t seen this before
with Candida, but it’s an intelligent approach. So write down all the problems that you’ve
got on the column on the left side on a piece of A4 paper and then just draw lines and then
put every two to three or four weeks put a column on the top. And then what you’re going
to do is you’re going to work out the severity of that problem over a period of time; you’re
going to track it. Let’s just say something like gas or constipation;
when you first see me, there could be a grade 3 symptom, which is severe. But then you may
find two or three weeks later, it could actually in fact get worse. You could put a 3+ in that
column. But then over time as you improve, what you’ll find is there should be a reduction
in the severity of that symptom and the number value should go down as well. So you should
in time go from a three to a two, which is a moderate; to a one, which is mild. But as I say, people never improve in a linear
fashion. So you never go from feeling terrible to feeling fantastic in a period of months.
There’s always these up and downs which are going to occur, okay? It’s like the stock
market. The stock market will be up one day and down the next; up one day and down the
next. But what you’ll find over a long period of time is the score value increases, which
means there is an improvement. Just like in your symptoms, if you’re doing the right thing,
then there should be a reduction in the score value of your symptoms; threes being severe,
ones being mild symptoms. If you’re going to track all these symptoms over a period
of time, get a piece of paper and tape it on the inside of your wardrobe or something;
every couple of weeks just track this. And I’ve got a My Symptom Tracker in my book you
can print out with all the common signs and symptoms. So, Mrs. Watson, that’s how you’re going to
be able to know if you’re improving in Candida, is by testing and measuring your symptoms
in comparison to the treatment protocol that you put into place. And this is something
I’m not seeing with any other program. So if you’re doing things correctly, there should
be a good reduction in your score and that’s how you’ll know you’re on the right track,
okay? So I hope that answers your question. Thank

    Why not take a stool test to determine progress?

    Thank you especially for the comment on not improving linearly! I've not heard that before, and the downs I always took as loosing ground and got discouraged.
    Can't thank you enough for these videos!
