What To Do If You Have A Yeast Infection For 3 Years And It Is NOT Going Away And You Have Tried ALL

August 13, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Author of Candida Crusher. Formulator of the CanXida range of supplements. I’ve got an interesting question here that
was put to me through the YouTube channel. It’s a lady called Allison Taylor and she’s
from Kent in England. Allison is saying, “Eric, what do I do? I’ve had Candida for three years and it’s
not going away and I’ve tried all the diets. I can’t get rid of it.” So, Allison’s question is particularly regarding
a vaginal yeast infection, but she’s had other kinds of issues in her digestive system and
many other issues. I’m not going to go into Allison’s case here-there’s
a lot of personal stuff in here. It’s quite a lengthy email I got from her,
but I promised her in a private message that I would respond to this by YouTube video. So, it’s quite an interesting case, Allison’s
and it’s one I’ve heard many times before. I’ve got a person here-she’s separated; she’s
got two grown up children, teenage grown up children. She’s working. She’s got mortgage stress. She’s had relationship breakdown issues. She’s got problems at work. She’s got a few different issues that she’s
going through. In other words, she’s got high stress. This is a lovely lady. I can tell by the email. She’s a very nice person. Three years it’s not going away. But have you noticed how Allison says, “I’ve
tried all the diets.” I keep telling people it’s not all about food. There’s a lot more at stake here. It’s not just about what you put in your mouth
that will determine a successful outcome with a yeast infection. I can’t tell you how many people I see on
Skype through my online clinic that have got many different types of issues in their life-many
challenges that they face. Many people experience these stresses and
they try and deal with them by exercising. We’re going to go out and do lots of exercise
or they go out and they go on these very special diets. They eat the best foods. They get personal trainers. They go all out and they still feel like crap. They go to the doctor, doesn’t work. They go to the naturopath, doesn’t work. Then they talk to me. Then they start saying, “Well, I didn’t think
that my lifestyle was affecting me that much. I’m eating the best possible diet. I’ve got a really fit body, how come I’m not
getting any better?” And you can soon hear it by the voice, by
the attitude, by the mannerisms, you can see why many people aren’t getting better. Many of these people develop anxiety and stress
as a result of feeling sick, which in turn is a stress in its own right that is going
to cause a lot of problems. Now in Allison’s case, we did end up having
a consultation with Allison and she told me I’m quite okay to talk about this case online,
but as I mentioned I’m not going to give a lot of details away. I think Allison finally realized that she
has to make some significant changes when it comes to boundaries in her life with people. She’s got to start saying no to some of the
negative relationships that she’s got. In particular, she’s got to be careful with
her work environment, because it’s really eating her up. She hates her job. She doesn’t like it, but she feels that she
has to continue on with this job. Now this patient’s diet is pretty phenomenal. In fact, her diet’s way better than my diet,
but she’s still not really recovering. Now, what we’re doing now with Allison is
we’re doing a salivary cortisol DHEA test and we’re doing a stool test. We’re going to have a look at what stress
is actually causing to her body. We’re going to determine what her cortisol
levels are like to see if she’s getting immune suppression or if she’s got a very deficient
immune system. We’re going to be doing a stool test to see
exactly where her gut is and how it’s been affected by the changes in the cortisol level. This will be able to give me a really good
understanding of how Allison’s responding in a physiological sense to her lifestyle
and diet. So, just remember folks, it’s not just all
about what you eat. I’m sick to the back teeth of all these videos
I’ve seen from all these people in beautiful suits: “You need to eat this kind of food,
and that kind of food,” but they really don’t go into enough of the psyche of the person. How that person feels about their life. These are the very important things here that
need to be addressed. Now remember, I’ve said this time and again. If you’re not responding to treatment, you
need to change what you’re doing. Not just change eating brown rice, eating
white rice or going to this rice, I couldn’t give a damn about what kind of rice you eat
half the time. I’m much more interested in how you relate
to your boss or your husband or your wife. How you relate to the teenagers or the young
children. How this is affecting you. I’m looking at the parameters like energy,
sex drive, sleep, anxiety, depression. These things speak volumes about the person
a lot more than about how many times they fart a day. I’m much more interested to see how many times
they lose their rag a day. In Allison’s case, it’s pretty obvious there’s
a lot of anxiety here. There’s sleeping disorders here. There’s a very dissatisfied person. Of course this woman is not going to respond
to the diet. What the hell’s a diet got to do when she
hates her boss? She needs to make some significant change. With significant change, comes significant
change. Small change, small outcome. Big change, big outcome. That’s how I want you to think. Life’s too short to live a crappy unfulfilled
life. The ball is in your court. You decide which way you want to go with your
health. I can tell you now, if you think that eating
a perfect diet and having a perfectly toned body is going to make you fit and healthy,
then you’re barking up the wrong tree. Just want you to think that. These are important considerations to make
here. So there you have it Allison, I’ve spelt it
out. I hope it’s not going to be too offensive
for you, but you told me to talk about it. There’s a lot of things I haven’t told people
about. Things that I will keep confidential. So I really want you to make these changes. One of the things we agreed on during the
consultation was that you were going to start looking for another job. I really think this deep unhappiness that
you’ve got with your work is resulting in some tension with your children, and that’s
one of the first things I’d like you to resolve. When people become very happy with their lifestyle,
they become happy with their relationships. When they’ve overcome personal difficulties
and problems, it often means it’s the beginning of the body to start healing and recovering
on quite a deep level. I’ll leave it at that. If you haven’t got my report already folks,

    To this day i can not comprehend how it was possible for me to eat mostly natural yoghurt and flat rye bread (cycle everyday) and not have candida(my symptoms just went away even though at that time i didnt know what candida was and that i had it but did this "diet" during the summer time to lose some weight and of course got back to eating junk food after holidays and saw my symptoms return ) and now when im fully aware of my candida infection i can not even touch brown rice and must stay on keto to see any difference. When I eat any starchy food even rice i mentioned i get heat strokes and itching. Doc please help

    For the past year I have been struggling with yeast and BV infections, once I take care of one the other shows up not far behind. I don't know what to do, I feel so defeated! I am moderately stressed, but I have great relationships and I'm happy in my life other than feeling defeated from this problem. Do you have any advice??

    Hi, I'm a 15 year old girl who recently developed thrush in more than one place. I got prescribed one 150 mg dose of fluconazole by my doctor and after taking it, it almost disappeared completly within three days. Unfortunately, now it's back again (after two days of it disappearing) and it is now just as bad as before. The closest i could get another appointment is next week. Meanwhile, should i go to the out of hours doctor or just wait until then? I've got important exams coming up and i don't want this to get in the way of that.
    Thank you
