Candida Question #8 I Cured My Candida But Will It Come Back?

Here’s an email I received from a lady some time ago who beat her yeast infection, but now she’s concerned that it may recur.

Well, it shouldn’t happen. You shouldn’t have to get your infection back at all providing you’ve learned your lessons and you’ve understood the cause and effect. Many people develop a yeast infection through poor lifestyle or diet. For example, taking recurring antibiotics, the oral contraceptive pill, or different medications or perhaps eating too much ice cream, having too much sugar in general or carbs in their diet, high stress lifestyles, not enough sleep, there are many reasons why people develop a yeast infection and also many reasons why they maintain this particular yeast infection.

So, if you’ve understood the cause and effect and you’ve worked on the causes, you’ve understood the exciting cause or the reason why you developed it, and then you’ve eradicated the maintaining causes, the reasons why you’ve maintained this infection, there’s no reason to believe you should have your yeast infection back again.

The other thing I would say to you is did you learn your lesson? Candida is a good teacher. Did you learn something from your experiences? Have you moved on? Was it a lesson you needed to learn? If you learned well and you consider Candida your teacher and you’re a good pupil, then you should have learned your lesson and not have to suffer the consequences of a yeast infection again.

So I hope that answers your question. You should not have to endure a recurrence of your yeast infection.

Candida Question #7 Do Heavy Metals Such As Mercury Cause Yeast Infection?

Well, not directly, but like many other toxins, heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, lead, tin, aluminum will certainly cause problems with your immune system. They can suppress the immune system and create problems on many different levels inside your body.

When this occurs, it can often lead to opportunistic infectious disease, including a yeast infection. There is certainly evidence which makes us believe that mercury, particularly methyl mercury which is secreted by your mercury amalgam fillings, has an effect on yeast in the digestive system, particularly in the bowel.

So we have seen a connection with people with mercury fillings and yeast infections, particularly people that don’t recover well, and I was one of those people back in the mid-80s. After having 30 amalgam fillings removed and replaced with new fillings, my health took a turn for the worse and I’ve certainly seen this with many patients who’ve had dental restoration; they’ve had a major aggravation of a gut problem or a yeast infection. So there is a connection between mercury and Candida.

So, do heavy metals cause Candida? Not directly, but indirectly they do. And if you’re concerned, do see your health care professional for some heavy metal testing.

Thank you.

Candida Question #6 How Do I know Your Candida Crusher Program is Going To Work?

How do I know your Candida Crusher Program is going to work? Why would it be any better than other programs for yeast infection I’ve tried?

Well only you can be the judge of that. I can’t be, but I can tell I have been working with my program now for over 20 years involving tens of thousands of patients and I can tell you the program does work. And in my clinical experience seeing patients for many years on end, you tend to tweak and fine tune a program and you tend to use what works and reject what doesn’t work.

But I’ve always found that there are about three types of patients that I tend to see with yeast infections. On patient tends to recover quite quickly. They tend to follow the recommendations, they follow the diet, they follow the lifestyle changes that I recommend, and they recover quite okay; usually within three to four months.

The second group of patients tends to recover more slowly. They will try some recommendations, they tend to be quite busy with their life, they take supplements sporadically, they return occasionally for follow-up visits, they don’t take things too seriously, perhaps because their symptoms aren’t bad enough as category number one. They do recover in the end. Many of them do turn out to be a category one patient and they will eventually recover when they’ve learned many lessons.

Category three don’t recover that well at all. These are often people after a quick fix. These are the people that fall for scams like “Cure your yeast infection in 20 hours” or scams like that. They just want to treat symptoms and get rid of symptoms and ignore causes. About 8 to 10 percent of patients I see fall in category three. I see them once; I don’t see them again. That’s fine. They tend to move from one practitioner to another.

So why would my program be different from any other program that perhaps you’ve looked at on the internet or in a book. For example, I offer eight different home tests that you can perform at home and I like you to do two weekly testing intervals, sort of like you know self-testing. So I’ve given you a home testing tracker in my Candida Crusher book as well.

I’d like you also to track the severity of your symptoms over three to four months to give me an indication which way the severity of symptoms are heading, if they’re improving or if they’re getting worse. So I’m a big believer in test and measure. If you put a good protocol into place, you follow the recommendations; you should get the right outcome. If you don’t, we’re going to look for the hidden causes, which I cover my deeply in my book.

So that’s a little bit about my program. I hope that answers your question, why is my candida crusher program better.
