Greetings! Eric Bakker, New Zealand naturopath, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the CanXida range of supplements. Thank you so much for checking out this video. I’ve got a question here from a man in Chicago called Paul Shear, and Paul’s asking me a question: “Eric, are colonics good for Candida?” That’s a great question Paul, and I may have done a video on this one already, I’m not sure, but I’m just going to reply to your question that you asked me through YouTube.
So, colonics are excellent. I really think colonics are good. Now, let’s not get colonics confused with enemas, because there are a big difference between them both. If you’re going to get a colonic done, I want you to go to someone who’s registered, particularly with the International Colon Hydrotherapy Association. Somebody who’s actually good and knows what they’re doing. There are some backyard operators. You need to go to a person with a good skillset, preferably someone with a few more years on the clock. Someone in their 40s, 50s or 60s. Someone who’s done thousands of colonics. These people are fantastic.
I’ve got a few friends that are colon hydrotherapists and we often discuss cases. Interesting thing is we discuss over lunch, so that’s not really the kind of topic you want to talk about when you’ve got a mouthful of food, but I don’t worry about things like that. I’ve got a very good friend in Wellington, New Zealand who is New Zealand’s most experienced colon hydrotherapist. She’s a wonderful lady and we’ve discussed many cases. I’ve referred many patients to her. The outcomes have been absolutely fantastic.
Colonics work well when used in conjunction with the correct diet and lifestyle and supplementation. They form a beautiful adjunct to the diet. But Paul, I don’t want you thinking you can have three or four cups of coffee, five cigarettes a day, couple of beers at night, and then have a colonic and think it’s going to fix everything up. I want you to try and understand that colonics are the icing on the cake. They should only be used if you expect a high level of effectiveness of treatment with the correct therapy when all used at the same time.
It’s no different from going to the gym three or four times a week and expecting a good outcome if you’re going to have pizzas every night for dinner. You’re not going to do that, are you? If you’re going to spend money on gym fees, you’re probably going to want to have some good vegetables at night with some proteins. You’re not going to want to have this deep-fried muck that people eat. You get my point.
The point is a colonic hydrotherapy should be used as part of the overall treatment program, and I want you to follow the lead of the colon therapist. A good colon hydrotherapist will actually be able to very carefully guide you. He or she will have the experience to know how many sessions you need and when you need them and will also give you some very good dietary advice at the same time.
It’s good that you’ve also asked me about stool testing. I can certainly help you out with that regard. It’s quite clever to have a comprehensive stool test done as part of your treatment program as well, particularly if you’re going to incorporate colonics into that treatment program. Because you’ll be able to work out if you need beneficial bacteria, what types you need, how much you need, do you need to work on parasites and bacteria at the same time, do you have a yeast infection. So all of these questions will be answered with a stool test and then the colonics can be tailored to suit your particular treatment. Some people benefit from a colonic twice a week. Some people from once every fortnight, but that’s for the colon therapist to determine.
Good colon hydrotherapy will make you feel really good. You’ll sleep better. Your energy will be improved. Most of your digestive discomfort will disappear. It’s a fantastic treatment. I prefer people to get professional treatment rather than to try home treatments. When you’ve got experience with colon hydrotherapy, it’s okay to start using enemas. You can use enemas, but once you’ve had the experience of a really good colonic, you’ll probably want to go back regularly for a while to the colon therapist to get to a high level.
I’ve got a good friend in England who is an exceptionally good colon hydrotherapist. He’s an amazing guy. I really don’t think it’s a crazy therapy. I think it’s a fantastic therapy and it works quite well. Not just for Candida patients, but I recommend it for helicobacter pylori, small intestinal bacterial problems, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, food poisoning people, many different types of inflammations, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, many of these conditions respond to a very good colon cleansing treatment regime. There’s no doubt about it. I’m all for it.
So I hope that answers your question, Paul. Go onto Google, find someone who’s registered, someone who’s very good. Hamish Tailyour is my English friend. I think he works in the southern part of England, I’m not quite sure. He’s very good. Hamish uses the gravity system which is the old fashioned method of colonics. There’s a new system and the old system.
As I said, find someone who’s good, and you’ll get a good outcome. Don’t forget to click on my link below if you haven’t got my report, and please subscribe. Thanks for tuning in.
