Video 1 – Past Medication and Treatment History


Greetings, Eric Bakker, naturopath from New
Zealand. Thanks for checking out my video. I’m gonna be doing a series of five videos
right now, which I call the key indicative videos. So when you look at these videos I’d like
you to look at all five of these cause these are five particular topics, which are gonna
show you if you are really predisposed towards Candida. How big that problem is. So when you check these videos out you’re
going to get a good feeling whether you really have an issue with Candida or bacteria or
parasites or bugs like we see in general. So the five videos are basically going to
be … We are going to look at past medications and treatment history that’s one, multiple
positive symptoms matches is two, food cravings is three, digestive conditions is four, and
emotional, mental and physical warning signs will be five. So this is the first video, and we are going
to focus on past medication and treatment history. So if you are watching this video right now,
and you think you really have got a problem with Candida or bacteria or other type of
gut issues or stomach issues, I want you to think carefully about the past kind of treatments
that you’ve had generally from a medical practitioner. Have you been involved in taking medications
short term or long term particularly if you’ve noticed when you took the medications you
started developing problems thereafter requiring either more medications or developing symptoms,
which require more medications, etc. That’s A, and B did you have any hospital
stay? Was it a short stay or a prolonged stay? Did you have any complications in hospital
or when you came out of hospital? Have you not felt right since you left hospital? These very powerful key indicator. So let’s look at some of the common drugs. I have written about this in Candida Crusher,
this is on page 54 of Candida Crusher. Most common Western medicine risk factors
involved in yeast overgrowth, number 1 is medications. Yes, that’s right, medications in my opinion
form one of the most important reasons why people get Candida and maintain this Candida
condition for a long time. And of course the top of the tree, the broad
spectrum antibiotic drugs. I can’t tell you how many thousands of people
I’ve seen over the years that have never been well since taking antibiotics. And in some cases these antibiotic courses
have ranged from a simple seven or ten days on say Penicillin up to six months plus! How crazy is that? So the broad spectrum antibiotics in my opinion
are the number one cause, right up there in the top two or three causes I should say of
Candida. Anti-ulcer drugs … Taking drugs to block
acid formation in the stomach. We call them Proton Pump Inhibitors or PPI’s
or acid blockers. These cause huge amounts of problems. They change the pH in the gut, they block
acidity from occurring, this can allow bacteria to flourish in the area, this is gonna create
a lot of problems downstream: bloating and gas and malabsorption and predisposes a person
also towards a yeast infection. Colicky steroids and immunosuppression drugs
this could be Prednisolone Tablets to swallow … This could be … you may have been in
hospital and had a course of Dexamethasone or some kind of an intravenous steroid, a
powerful one. You may also be using topical steroid cream
to put on the skin. All of these drugs are designed to suppress
immune function. When we suppress immunity, we increase susceptibility
of getting sick. Diabetes drugs … There are many types of
diabetes drugs and often they will manipulate or influence insulin levels in the body. When you start playing around with these you
are a sitting duck for a yeast infection. Many people with diabetes on medications end
up with Candida infections. Immunosuppressive drugs … We’ve talked about
them. There are more, there are many more different
types of immunosuppressive drugs you can go on. You can also go on other drugs I see particularly
for example people with very bad joint pain, and they get put on Methotrexate for example
to suppress the pain. We see that with psoriatic arthritis or [inaudible
00:04:07] arthritis and these drugs can also cause pre disposure toward Candida. Intravascular catheter use … Some people
have to use catheters either for urinary infections or for many other reasons. And again you are predisposed to bacteria
or fungal infection. Or contraceptive pill use … I’ve done videos
on this. Taking synthetic estrogen encourages in many
cases the production of inappropriate glycogen responses. Sugar release in the body … Estrogen has
many different effects, which can predispose towards yeast infection. So people taking the pill need to be very
careful. And of course we spoke about prolonged hospital
stay. So these are some very powerful predisposing
factors and key indicators for yeast infection. This is video number one. Be sure to catch up with me in video number
two. Thanks for tuning in.
