How can I tell if I have candida?

I’m going to answer a frequently asked question today. One I get asked quite regularly by people. How do I know if I have Candida?

Well, there are many ways you can find out if you’ve got Candida. I’ve probably addressed some of these particular questions in other videos, but it’s important, I think, to explain to you if you have Candida or not.

You can spend a lot of time looking at different websites or going to doctors or different people and trying to work out if you’ve got Candida. You can go to friends. You can go to Facebook. There are many ways you can find out about Candida. But probably one of the most intelligent ways to find out if you’ve got Candida to a mild, moderate or high probability is to do my online quiz on

This is the world’s best online quiz you’re going to find on Candida. It took a long time to put together and to get all the bugs ironed out. It’s a very, very accurate quiz. You’re going to find out with quite a high probability. So I’ve spent 26 years now in a clinic, and I’ve treated many thousands of people with yeast infection. I’ve worked out what the most important questions are when it comes to Candida to working out what the probability is that they have Candida.

You’ll find, for example, that quite a few of the screens of the quiz involve questions like “Have you taken an antibiotic like a tetracycline?” “Have you been on the oral contraceptive pill?” “Have you taken steroids?” These three classes of drugs, in particular, are one of the strong causative factors of Candida, particularly the antibiotics.

I’ve seen thousands of people with yeast infections ranging from mild to severe systemic Candida particularly who’ve been affected by antibiotics. Antibiotics are a terrible drug for many people. In fact, some people have never come right with their health since taking antibiotic. I’m sure there are some people out there now that can really relate to this. That when they took that course of antibiotics, their health has never been the same.

But there are many other ways you can work out if you’ve got a yeast infection. The sugar cravings will often let you know. Do you want cookies or ice cream? Have you got a desire for sodas? Do you have to stop off at McDonalds quite frequently when you’re driving around? Do you eat a lot of chewing gum with sugar in it? These are all ways to find out.

So it can be also subtle things like muscle aches or pains can also be a telltale symptom. Brain fog. What you often find is these things are in combinations with the other things I was mentioning with the causes and other signs and symptoms. So by doing the quiz, you’re going to really work out if you’ve got this problem or not. So please go to and do my online quiz, and that’s how you got to work out if you have Candida or not.

Thank you.
