What Is Aspergillus?

August 14, 2019

Hi there. Eric Bakker, from New Zealand. The naturopath. Author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my video. What a beautiful sunny day today. We’re in winter time, but you’d never know. We’re going to talk about Aspergillus today. Aspergillus is a type of mold. It’s one that I’ve heard practitioners talk
about many times. Many people freak out about Aspergillus, but
I think it’s really overstated. Aspergillus, I’ve never really found it in
stool test reports, but I have found it certainly comes up with sputum or with swabs from the
sinus regions. It’s a particular mold that’s used a lot commercially
for different things, as we’ll discuss in a minute. It can also cause a condition called aspergillosis,
especially of the lungs and the sinuses can be very affected by it. If you’ve got a long-standing sinus problem,
or if you’ve got pulmonary issues, issues with breathing, coughing, wheezing, stuff
like that, and it’s not being amended by proper therapies, then you may need to ask a doctor
to check for aspergillosis. If we look at the commercial uses of Aspergillus,
it’s used to make citric acid. Ninety-nine percent of the world’s citric
acid is made from a mold called Aspergillus. Aspergillus oryzae is used in certain types
of alcohol manufacturing, like sake for example. They’ll start often with unrefined rice. They usually break those starches down to
a simple sugar by using this mold called aspergillus oryzae. Then they’ll use saccharomyces, which is a
yeast, to finish off those sugars and ferment that into alcohol. Now you can see why stuff like alcohol is
not a good idea if you’ve got a mold or yeast problem. It’s just going to exacerbate the problem. Any kind of alcohol is not good because yeasts
and molds and crap like that are used to actually help the process of manufacturing these beverages. So not a good idea. Now, the interesting thing with this particular
mold is it loves aerobic environments. It loves lots of oxygen and air to breathe. It’s a bit of a fresh air junky, this stuff. That’s probably why it likes living in the
sinuses, the throat, the lungs because it’s getting an oxygen rich environment. We don’t see it that much really in the digestive
system. It can cause a super infection with some patients
if they’ve got a really depleted immune system. More so it’s a local problem that causes disturbance. How do you get rid of it? Well, how to get Aspergillus in balance is
by following my Candida Crusher principles. You follow the right diet that we talk about. I’ve written all about that. I’ve done 600/700 videos on this whole area. Please don’t ask me really standard questions. Check out my videos, read my writing on,
and also check out my supplementation of These products are very effective, and will
help to maintain a good balance and harmony in the body of molds and yeasts that may occur
as part of an overgrowth and a poor immune function. Don’t freak out with Aspergillus, it’s usually
a local treatment and can be fixed. It’s nowhere near as severe as some of the
Candida strains. Click on the link below if you haven’t got

    I got it in my stool test results. Looks like everytime I eat something( and I do follow since months gaps diet plus probiotics) my small intestine starts to ferment…or at least that's the sensation I got. Any ideas?

    It can really harm you. Do antibiotics help remove this

    If I don’t have candida do you believe eating things with aspergillus can actually be beneficial for the gut?
