Hi There. It’s New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker. I’m the author of a book called Candida Crusher and I’m the formulator of a range of products called Canxida. Thanks for checking out this tutorial today. I’ve got a question here from a lady called Jill Wence from San Bernardino. San Bernardino sounds like somewhere in Italy, but I think it’s in California somewhere. A lot of San places like San Jose in California. Jill is asking me the question, Eric, are sinus infections related to yeast This is a great question, Jill, and something.
I can certainly talk to you about. There is definitely a link between sinus infections, particularly chronic sinus infections, and Candida. Acute sinus infections are more often than not bacterial, but the chronic ones often have a relationship with what we call AFS or allergic fungal sinusitis. Let’s talk a little bit about sinusitis in general. sinusitis is a condition that huge amounts of patients have contacted me for over the years. I think the Mayo Clinic did some research with a group of about 210 patients and they found that 96 percent of these people they could culture three or more strains of.
A yeast from the mucous of 96 percent of 210 people. That’s a lot of people and a lot of different kinds of fungal strains. There is definitely a relationship there with the fungus and chronic sinusitis. And of course, if you go the Web MD or a website like that, the first kind of treatment they’re going to recommend is antibiotics, which is pretty dumb because antibiotics will make you more susceptible to getting Candida. Many of my patients with chronic sinusitis have had one or more rounds of antibiotics. That’s a pretty dumb thing.
Are Sinus Infections Related To Candiida Yeast Infections
To do is actually take an antibiotic for sinusitis. If you’ve got chronic sinusitis, don’t take an antibiotic because you’ll just make sure that it stays longer and the yeast strains become more virile. There are different ways you can treat yourself with sinus infections, but probably one of the most important things you can do is to look at a Candida cleansing approach like the Candida Crusher diet, the threestage diet. That’s going to help you significantly. And also look at different kinds of products that are going to help you, a good antifungal, a good probiotic enzyme, so check out my website.
Canxida. That will give you some idea on the kind of things that I make. But you can really help yourself a lot overcoming chronic sinusitis by strengthening your immune system and by using essential oils, changing your diet. There are many different things that you can do. Check out yeastinfection. There is some good information on there as well about sinusitis and yeast infection. Treating yourself locally is important and the best way to get over a chronic sinus infection is to holistically look at diet and lifestyle and some supplements and using some essential oils. Another suggestion I give patients often.
Is using a neti pot or using a situation, it could be a plastic bottle you could get from the chemist with a little silicone tip to squirt water up the nose, suck it in and spit it out the back of the throat. You can get little ideated pots that will do that with saline rinses. They will help to a degree, too. When you have got chronic sinusitis, you need to make significant diet changes. We certainly take out all the allergy forming foods from someone’s diet, particularly cow’s milk and.
Dairy products, alcohol, chocolate, peanuts, oranges, bananas, those are some of the key foods we remove and we make sure that the house is well ventilated and that the patient is living in a mold free environment. Many people have got mold in their environment and that can create a big problem for a recurring allergic fungal sinusitis. The other tip I’ll give you with chronic sinusitis or recurring is to get your teeth checked out in case you’ve got root canals or problems on the upper teeth that can affect the maxillary.
