Eric is NZ’s leading on-line naturopath, he writes extensively for many e-zines, blogs and lectures regularly at natural medicine colleges throughout both Australia and New Zealand. 

What Makes Eric Bakker Qualified To Teach About Candida?

Eric has been treating and specializing in treating many different types of yeast infections for over twenty years. He has developed a highly successful treatment program called the Candida Crusher based on more than fifteen thousand successfully treated cases of vaginal thrush, endometriosis, jock itch, toenail fungus, athlete’s foot, psoriasis and the many other manifestations of a yeast infection. He has researched and written a book called Candida Crusher, a 718 page book covering many aspects of yeast infection including diagnosis, testing, as well as conventional and natural treatment.

Why Does This Book Cost So Much?

Candida Crusher costs what it does because it took just over three years to research and write, and is based on treating over 15,000 yeast infected patients spanning twenty-five years. Candida Crusher is quite possibly the most comprehensive self-help manual on yeast infections written to date. Unlike some books of its kind, it is not half-filled with recipes, but is packed with countless hints and tips not found anywhere else on yeast infection recovery.

Will Candida Crusher Help Me Get Rid Chronic Yeast Infections?

The answer to this question is YES, if you follow the program entirely as outlined in the book Candida Crusher, make the necessary changes and improvements to your diet and lifestyle, and take the required dietary supplements as recommended then you will have a large chance of entirely beating a chronic yeast infection. The Candida Crusher Program has been used successfully in a clinical setting for many years with many satisfied clients from around the world, some who have had a chronic yeast infection for twenty years or even longer. Results vary naturally from patient to patient, depending on the level participation and commitment, and whether there are any underlying results that may prohibit recovery.

Does Candida Crusher Book Have Recipes?

Yes, there are numerous specialized recipes in Candida Crusher, including recipes for specialized foods and drinks, specialized juicing recipes, fermented and cultured foods recipes, recipes for home treatments and more. Candida Crusher however was not designed to be a candida recipe or cookbook, but it is packed however with plenty of useful information including health tips, charts, diagrams and much more.

Is the Candida Crusher Program Safe For Children?

Absolutely. Children thrive on the diet recommendations as outlined in the Candida Crusher book because the diet discourages the consumption of refined carbohydrates and fake foods like take- out, processed meats, soda drinks, candy, and encourages the consumption of high quality proteins such as fish, chicken and eggs, wholegrain foods, nuts and seeds as well as plenty of vegetables.

Has There Been Clinical Research Done On The Candida Crusher Program?

It all depends what you define as “clinical” research. I have spent twenty-five years in the clinic and treated tens of thousands of patients from all walks of life, all ages and from almost thirty different countries with many different kinds of conditions. My speciality however has been in candida yeast infection patients, and I have seen over 15,000 patients with just about every kind of yeast infection presentation. Most of my research has come about through trial and error.

There will be no doubt those who read Candida Crusher and pass off my information as “unscientific” and “anecdotal”, because much of my information is based on patient’s case histories and my own extensive clinical experience. In defense I would like to quote what a professor of medicine has to say:

“Clinical experience is the gold standard on which patient care should be based”. Gene H. Stollerman, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine.

Does This Book Talk About Lifestyle Changes?

Candida Crusher contains some of the best lifestyle advice you will find when compared to any other book written to date about yeast infections, in fact, it is one of the most important sections of the book. It is very important to remember that certain lifestyle elements are frequently both the primary cause as well as the maintaining causes of a yeast infection that often stand squarely in the way of a person’s recovery. When you come to recognize and understand these particular factors in your own lifestyle, then you will have finally discovered that the power is really in your own hands to fully recover, by making the necessary changes long-term.

Candida Crusher will enable you to get a really good grasp of the most important yeast infection lifestyle recovery concepts such as eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones, understanding about how stress affects your immune system, learning how to clean up your body through detoxification and learning about the best special foods and supplements which help to eradicate your yeast infection. But it goes much further than this, this book also covers self responsibility, understanding anxiety, improving your sleep, learning how to relax, how to improve your moods, how to have fun and learn to laugh more, how mold affects your health, exercising, and more. See the extensive table of contents of Candida Crusher for a complete list of lifestyle topics.

Can I Get A Refund For This Book If I Don’t Like It?

Of course you can! I have a sixty-days (60) refund policy, if you don’t like my book and can’t honestly see how it could change your life for the better, then please let us know within two months and we will refund your money in full. But do remember, if you are serious about finally beating your yeast infection and follow my program faithfully, it is highly likely that you will beat your yeast infection permanently. And isn’t that worth the small price you paid for a book that took me three years of writing and research, after treating over fifteen thousand patients spanning twenty-five years? Of course you can get a refund, but I doubt you will want your money back after seeing the real value you will get from Candida Crusher when you compare it to any other e-book on yeast infection you may have seen or have bought before.

Do You Make Any Guarantees About The Book?

Guarantees? The only guarantees I make are that your chances of recovery from a yeast infection are extremely high if you follow the Candida Crusher Program to the letter. Results will vary naturally from person to person, and we certainly do make any claims or guarantee any “cures” from a yeast infection. Any practitioner who claims to “cure” you, especially when they make ridiculous claims like a “the 12 hour cure” needs to be treated with contempt. Nobody can make any guarantees or claims when it comes to any form of treatment, because it is up to you entirely to follow the program and you will only ever get the optimal results by what YOU are willing to put into it.

What Makes This Book Different From Other Bbooks About Candida?

What makes Candida Crusher a totally unique book about yeast infections is that it has been written not only by a former yeast infection sufferer, but by a naturopath who has successfully treated more than 15,000 thousands cases of yeast infection. A naturopath who has practiced alongside medical doctors for over fifteen years and in addition, worked as a technical and clinical services consultant to the natural health industry for over twenty years.

Does This Book Address Systemic Candida?

Absolutely. Candida Crusher has ample information contained throughout its contents that explains how candida develops in the body and can change from its simple single cell form into a mycelial form and create havoc throughout the body. You can read in detail about the signs and symptoms of systemic candidiasis, and more importantly, how to stop intestinal candida from becoming systemic and how to eradicate yeast from your body whether it be gastrointestinal or systemic.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After I Buy This Book?

That depends on many different factors. Results come quickly to some, and can take a little longer for others. Generally speaking, many patients start to notice improvements within a month, and about 60 percent have improved to the point where they feel really well within four to six months. Each case varies, some patients are well within eight weeks, whereas others are still struggling after 9 months, and there are many reasons for these variances, which is all explained in great detail in Candida Crusher.

What Makes This Book Worth $47?

Candida Crusher represents an excellent investment at only $47.00, because of the quality of information it contains. You will soon save money by following the most useful information contained in this candida bible and speed up your recovery, thereby saving you a lot of money and potential health concerns down the track. The book costs considerably less than the cost of a consultation to see Dr. Bakker or any other doctor for that matter.

Does Candida Crusher Provide A Diet?

Candida Crusher provides a very comprehensive section on diet and nutrition, over 150 pages. There is a considerable amount of detail in Candida Crusher with regards to foods, including plenty of handy hints and tips which will help you short-cut your recovery. The Candida Crusher Diet is in three parts, the Induction or MEVY Diet, the Low-Allergy Diet and the Re-Introduction Diet. The book comes complete with extensive lists and charts on foods and beverages to consume and what to avoid.

Is There A Section On Herbal Remedies For Candida?

There certainly is, in the fourth section of chapter seven you will find plenty of information about the best herbal medicines to use with yeast infections internally as well as externally along with detailed instructions on how to use the herbs, any precautions and warnings, dosages, interactions and more.

Is This Program Safe For Diabetics?

Yes, the Candida Crusher Program is perfectly safe for those with diabetes, and in fact is an excellent diet approach for those with diabetes as it encourages the removal of alcohol and refined carbohydrates including sweet fruits, the inclusion of high quality proteins and vegetables and complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.

A key feature of the Candid Crusher Diet, outlined in the book, is the importance of balancing a person’s blood sugar levels and to stop any blood sugar spiking, which reduces the ability of candida to get out of hand and become truly systemic. This is an excellent approach for the diabetic, who will be able to control their diabetes to a much higher degree by following the Candida Crusher recommendations.

How Would This Book Change My Life?

Candida Crusher could well change your life for the better, as the program outlined in this book has changed the lives of many thousands of patients who have followed these principles for many years. Candida Crusher is not just a book about a candida diet or teaching you how to cook healthy foods, complete with a whole bunch of recipes like many candida books are filled with, this book contains an extensive amount of information about how you can change your life for the better, because your lifestyle should be your main concern as far as yeast infection recovery is concerned. This is why I have included a great deal of information on how to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle in my book, information I consider to be some of the most useful information you will find to help you in your quest for living a yeast infection free life forever.

Unless those with yeast infections change their lifestyle to reduce the causative factors, complete and permanent healing is seldom accomplished. I have certainly discovered this to be the case in my practice and have noticed that those patients who are the most committed to recognizing the causes of their yeast infection and make the appropriate diet and lifestyle changes long-term are the ones who get the best results. Your life will be changed forever once you learn about these causes in my book, and more importantly, how to finally deal with them once and for all.

What Scientific Evidence Backs Up This Program?

The Candida Crusher Program is based not only on my own personal experiences in my yeast infection clinics spanning twenty-five years, but in addition is based on the most extensive clinical and research studies by others such as doctors William Crook M.D., Orian Truss M.D., John Parks Trowbridge M.D., Sidney Baker M.D., Leon Chaitow N.D, along with countless researchers at PhD level such as James L. Wilson, N.D., D.C., Ph.D. Since much of the original research dating back to the 1980’s, there have been over 100,000 research papers published on the effects of candida species and their adverse effects human health. Today, only the ignorant wish to believe that yeasts play no role in illness and that only bacteria and viruses are implicated.

Is This Book Easy To Understand?

Candida Crusher is simple enough to understand by most all people, the program is written in an easy-to-follow style with a natural progression. All the important points have been repeated several times, and there are several charts and diagrams to illustrate all the most important information. There are many summaries presented at several places throughout the book, and you should have no problems following the program.

What Evidence Is There To Back Up Dr. Bakker’s Theories On Yeast Infections?

There is no “scientific evidence” to back up Dr. Bakker’s theories with regard to candida yeast infections anymore than there is any evidence to back up any book written by a health-care professional regarding his or her professional clinical experiences over a prolonged period of time. Dr. Bakker has twenty-five years of experience in clinical natural medicine. But there is plenty of evidence from the many patients that he has seen over this period of time that his theories have been successful in eradicating chronic yeast infections in many thousands of patients.

“Clinical experience is the gold standard on which patient care should be based”. Gene H. Stollerman, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine

Does This Book Talk About Diagnosing Candida?

Chapter 3 of Candida Crusher is extensive and contains an exhaustive list of all the major and minor symptoms of a yeast infection. I’ll explain how you can spot yeast infections in women, men and children and show you the many home tests I have developed and been using in my clinic for several years with great success. You will also find my Candida Test Tracker © and Candida Symptom Tracker ©, two tools which will enable you to successfully track your Candida Crusher Program progress over a four-month period. I have found these tools invaluable and use them routinely in my clinic. There are many tests that can be performed both at home and in the doctor’s office which can certainly help with the candida diagnosis.

How Long Is This Book?

Candida Crusher is the largest and most comprehensive book written on candida yeast infection, it is 718 pages in length. Candida Crusher is in 8 chapters, and contains an incredible amount of useful information for those with a yeast infection looking for the best information on how to recover and stay well permanently.

Hi Eric,

Thank you for helping me with a problem which has been causing me grief for many years – my toenails. Ever since I can remember I have had awfully smelly toes. I have tried every lotion and potion I could find and thanks to your Candida Crusher program can now say that I can finally believe that soon I will be free from athlete’s foot. Look at the improvement! You asked me for a photo so here it is. I can recommend your services to anyone who has tried everything else. And Eric, don’t hesitate to catch up with me when you come to Brisbane next.

Athlete’s Foot – Cured

Hi Eric,

I just wanted to share with you how happy I am to finally be able to see healthy toenails after more than 30 years of awful, terrible athlete’s feet and discoloured and terrible misshapen toenails. You did promise me that in time my toenails would grow out to be normal again, but I never ever believed that it would really happen! But the interesting this is that we didn’t really treat my feet, but my digestion which I cannot get over. My allergies have disappeared and my digestion is back to normal, all in the span of 6 months, I still can’t believe it, I am absolutely thrilled!!

I wish you all the best with your candida book, your advice and information was certainly worth it for me. I just wish I could have gotten a copy, but you mentioned that you were almost finished writing it.

“I now recommend your wonderful Candida Crusher program to everybody”

Hi Eric,

I want to personally thank you for the work you are doing by educating and helping people like me. For the last 5 months I have been following your Candida Crusher diet and lifestyle program and especially the stress recommendations. It took a good two months to really notice the results. My aches (including headaches) I used to experience in my neck and back have all but gone and so has the annoying rash in my groin region that I used to have. But the best thing of all is that my bloated belly and gas (which is still there but a fraction of what it used to be like) is all but gone!

I now recommend your wonderful Candida Crusher program to everybody who complains of digestive problems especially, regardless of their type of digestive complaint. I once had no faith whatsoever in your type of medicine but can honestly say that your treatment worked for me and I know it can help others out there who have problems like I had. I live in England and next time I come to New Zealand want to come and visit you for a personal consultation, my daughter (who sent me a link to your yeast infection website) now lives in Auckland.
Thank you for the time you spent with me over the past several months.

“I’ve not only got rid of my yeast infection, I’ve lost 16 pounds!”

Hello Eric,
I am Karen aged 45, and yes, you can use my “story”, I hope it helps other people just like me out there overcome their yeast problems. I had been battling a candida infection for the past eight years at least. I came across your name and your candida program through my friend but had doubts as to whether you could help me, I honestly had tried just about every pill, product and treatment under the sun! But I’m glad I did, or I would have never gotten rid of this crippling condition. It took about four weeks to notice improvements and I must say I never experienced results like this with any other treatment or pill I tried. I can now save money on treatments and no more doctor visits or drugs like (which made me feel sick) or those messy creams I kept using with little results.
BTW – I’ve not only lost my yeast infection, I’ve also lost nearly eight kilos (16 pounds) in weight! :-)

Thanks and God Bless!

“Terrible Stomach Pains – All Gone”

Dear Dr. Bakker,

I visited your clinic in 2007 on a holiday to see my sister in your area with terrible stomach pains and very itchy skin. I craved sweet foods and as a chef found it really hard to stop eating sweet deserts. My health had been terrible for a quit a a few years, and all the doctors could do was keep on giving me antibiotics. Your Candida Crusher program was a true godsend and helped me within two weeks! I have now been free of digestive pains and have felt the best I have in many years, thank you so much for all your professional help and personal engagement, I really appreciate it.

My name is Olivia and I live in Auckland, NZ.

I have been following your Candida Crusher Program. It was completely mind blowing, because I knew there was something wrong with me, but I just couldn’t explain what or even why! Everything you had written in your articles is exactly how I have been feeling for decades. After doing the different home ttests that you had suggested, it was definitely the confirmation I needed. Thank you for writing such a great series on candida articles!

Regards, Olivia, Auckland, NZ


“A Passionate Health-Care Professional”

Thanks very much for your time and the info. I always come out of talking to you feeling so much better, having all my questions answered – and providing so much more info on my candida and digestive issues as well. It is such a pleasure (and a relief!) to know you and to at last be in touch with a real, genuine, knowledgeable and passionate natural health ‘professional’

“Thank you for helping me to solve your digestive problems”

Hi Eric, Matt here, I can not thank you enough for helping me solve my digestion problems. I have had just over two weeks avoiding the foods I am not supposed to have and have started your Candida Crusher program and I feel great to say the least. My stomach no longer hurts, I have energy again and my mental health almost instantly switched back to normal and I have not suffered any depression since. I would like to organize a time to call you for a phone consult to make sure I am giving my body everything it needs and I would also like to discuss the bowel as I still have some bloating and still not forming solid stool.
