What Is The Smell Test For Candida?

August 22, 2019

This is going to be another home test for
Candida to determine if you have Candida or not. This is called the smell test. It’s quite
a funny one, the smell test. They did some research at a college in London
a long time ago, the Imperial College in London, in England, and they found out that people
who have excessive bacteria and fungi on their body often have a body odor about them, a
smell. I frequently get emails from people saying
they’ve got bad breath or they got body odor, what could be going on? So it’s not uncommon
to have like a, “whewwww,” a smell under the armpit or like a body odor. People with Candida
often have gas. They have bloating. They have flatulence. They have bad bowel motions, so
they’ve got a lot of fermentation going on in the gut. This fermentation creates heat
and body odor as a consequence. If you go to a brewery or you do your own
home brewing of wine or beer or know an uncle or a relation who does this, go into that
place where they do it and it’ll be a bit smelly. The odor that is produced with fermentation
is quite common. Fermentation also creates warmth or heat, so people sometimes complain
about sweating or flushing with excessive fermentation dysbiosis, which occurs with
Candida quite a lot, so heat can be generated. Perspiration can be generated, bad body odor,
sweating all the time, smelly armpits just after a shower, still got bad body odor, and
so this could be a sign of an intestinal Candida problem, digestive Candida problem. So what
happens on the inside of the body goes to the outside of the body. Once a week you can do this test and then
write it down on my symptom tracker to determine if your body odor is changing. As Candida
goes away and the gut improves more and more and the fermentation disappears slowly and
the good bacteria come back, you’ll find that the odor will go away as well and you’ll smell
normal. You won’t have to be embarrassed around people anymore. That’s the smell test. Try and determine if
your body if the odor is changing, if it’s getting better or getting worse and record
that or have someone tell you that they think that your body odor is changing, someone that’s
close to you, a partner or a friend or something. They may notice this change as well. So that’s called the smell test. Thanks for
tuning into my video today.

    Hi there, thanks 🙂 I have had numerous herxheimer reactions after detoxes and lyphatic drainage massages … but this one was not expected. While I have been healthier and more active these last few weeks and feeling great, I started to take 30m Acidophilous 3 days ago. Yesterday I woke up feeling SO SO SO tired and sick and lethargic and brainfog and emotional. My BO got much much worse – quite unbearable – and the toilet smelt APPALLING after I had been … and I went 10 times a day! Today I feel a little better but have stopped the probiotics. Any advice? Thanks!

    when you spoke, I realized what's happening to me. I've been too embarrassed to be around even those closest to me lately (even my hubby), because I knew these symptoms were happening – a weird odor, more gassy, water retention, and rashes where you'd expect for a larger person. I'm so embarrassed, but on top of which, we're so poor, we only afford the Internet and computer because of my daughter's school (so we lose both in a year! ) we've gotten used to eating GARBAGE, and it has taken a toll on me the most, alright on all of us. hopefully this get better soon. thanks for the frank discussion. if I can muster the willpower to make these changes, hopefully it isn't too late. I have a family to live for.

    WOW!! I saw this video a while back last year and I seriously cant believe I missed such details!! Literally most of the issues I have in just this video not to mention other issues explained in your other videos as well. I have been sweating a lot with BAD ODOR EVEN AFTER SHOWERING I cant explain it like I could leave my house for a walk in a tank top and shorts and start heating up in minutes soaked at times even when its a bit breezy this doesnt just happen under my arms but all over! I have had bad odor which started occurring last year in march NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM ever!! my smell is worse when i sweat . I purchased products like caprilyc acid, oregono oil infussed w ginger and flax seed oils in supplement forms also have zinc but dont take it as much . I did get the die off symptoms when i took them last year a couple of times but I havent been eating right you could say. not overweighted thin in shape I run play sports stay active but i havent been taking the pills lately and when i did take them i took them for about a month straight. I also got a uti is that normal for candida sufferers?? Also developed hemorrhoid but i had chronic constipation so thats explainable im a 18 yr male. My main concern is about the Chronic SWEATING and BAD ODOR and the utis I would appreciate it if you could help me out. I purchased the candida restore cant say it helped but I wanted to purchase the remove to kill it off before restoring but it was out of stock maybe thats why it wasnt as affected I do say that my sugar cravings were under control so maybe that was a sign of its work. Zinc gets me very nausea dizzy even puked a lil bit once is that normal ??? What do you recommend? I took the spit test just yesterday again and it wasnt as stringy less than how it used to be and i started taking the pills again after a yr but dont get any die off symptoms. ANY PILLS YOU CAN RECOMMEND FOR THE SWEATING AND ODOR ? THANK YOU DOCTOR your vids have really informed me but i need more help. sorry for the bad grammar lol. I really do think my problems are associate with candida due to the tests AND THE FACT THAT IVE NEVER BEEN LIKE THIS IT STARTED LAST YEAR STILL WITH THE SAME PROBLEMS THIS YEAR.. REALLY SUCKS like JENNIFER W said its gotten to the point were i cant even be near people or leave the house people sneeze or cough when im near .. embarrassing . any info helps doc.

    I'm so glad that I stumbled across your videos. I've been doing tons of research on why I might be smelling bad all the time and I think I have finally found the solution. Thank you so much. I just have a question. Is it common for people who suffer from candida overgrowth not being able to smell the weird odor? Because I can never truly smell it, but close friends always tell me that I do smell. Also one more thing, I took the test on your website and my case is in the "severe" category. So how long do you think it'll take for me to start to smell normal? Following the book you wrote? Because… this problem is seriously taking all my confidence. Im only 22, and it's ruining my life. I already bought your supplements, and I'm waiting on the Colozone to get here so I can start this journey. Once again, thank you.

    Hello. Please i need some help. I think i have Candida since December. It started with White tongue, Digestive problems and night sweats, even tho it was winter. The other symptom, which i have for about 1-2 mounth, is smell on penis, only head, even after shower. And now my armpits, shaved, also smell even after shower. Im 18 y old, from Greece, 1.82 tall and 58-60 kilos weight. I never had eczema, acne, or else. Im A very stressful guy and also eat big amounts of sugar everyday. The period i think i got candida also came with a very bad illness sore throat, burning chest, needed over a month to get away from it. Now about my tongue, it has a white coat which gets Orangish after any kind of mean, brown-black after coca cola etc( i wish i could show you pics somehow). Something last I wanted to add it that, for like 5-6 times in these 5-6 months, i woke up with my pillow filled from orange salive) my tongue was pink and totally healthy, but i also had intense digestive problems the same day. From these 5-6 times i think that 1-2 i had eaten yogurt the previous day. To sum up, wake up, orange stamp of saliva in pillow, healthy pink Tongue, digestive problems for the rest of the day. PLEASE HELP ME DOCTOR!!!!!

    I am so glad that I went on the candida diet,I have been on this diet for two weeks,following all directions,and my body odor has disappeared. I was not aware that a bacteria in your gut could make you smell so horrible. I have suffered from body odor which I first started to notice in 2014,I would take three showers buy the best hygiene products,and nothing ever worked. The body odor was so bad that it would omit through my breath,and come through my pores,the smell was awful,and it made me gag,and others around me.I did not know what was actually happening to my body,and why I was smelling,when I never had any issues with body odor until 2014. I have wasted so much money on doctors,and dentist,only to tell me that it was in my head,WELL THEY WERE REALLY WRONG,and if other people could smell it,then it was not just all in my head. I started doing research and came upon a blog for TMAU sufferers,and thought well maybe I have this,but I realized that I never omitted the dead fish smell,just mostly poo breath,so I read someone’s comment,that it might be a candida growth,and I thought to myself hmmmm,let me research more, so I did,and I had almost every symptom that they described,and I was so relieved that I was seeing this,and that it was not just in my head(as doctors would say). I started on the candida diet,and in seven days,I noticed the symptoms in my odor was changing,now it has been two weeks,and I have been standing up close to people at work,talking closely in their face without them jumping back and giving me an reaction like they use to,this diet is a life saver,and saved my life,I have my social life back,and I never used to believe people when they would quote: if you put bad things in your body,bad things will come out,well it is so true,I am disciplining myself to eat a better diet,and live an healthier life style, I have totally stop eating all yeast products,and anything that contains sugar,and especially junk food,I refused to live my life in isolation,and go back to that dark place where I have been,when I can do something about the problem instead of ignoring it.I pray that all of you find happiness,and a cure to your body odor issues, I am not gonna lie and say the diet is not strict and hard,it is,but you will get use to it,I was a sufferer since 2014,do I know the pain,not telling you guys what to do,but if you are a sufferer of a constant bad body odor, I definitely would recommend the candida diet. be blessed,and success to you all!

    I think I smell metallic, but sometimes I get whiffs of an oniony smell. My hands smell like metal after I have showered and applied lotion. Would this be Candida?
