How Do I Know If I Have A Yeast Infection Or A Bacterial Infection
Here's a good question, an intelligent question.I like intelligent questions because they require me to really think about giving quitea reasonably good reply. This question comes from a lady in Australia. How do I know ifI have a yeast infection or a bacterial infectioné What is the differenceé How can I tell howéHow can the tellé It's a tough one. It really catches peopleout and, in fact, it's something I struggled with, too. To be quite honest, I don't carewhat kind of infection you've got. All I care about is trying to find out what caused theproblem and how I can fix it, how I can remedy the problem.
The two key things that you look at with peoplewhen they come to you presenting with problems are the signs and symptoms. I may have spokento you about this before. Symptoms are very important to me. Symptoms are subjective;these are what the patients tell you. You can't measure them. You can't quantify them.You can't see them. You can only go by what the person is telling you, what they're experiencing,what they're feeling; whereas, signs are something we can see with our eyes. We can test. We can see cuts. We can see wounds,for example. We can see hair loss. We can see skin rashes. These are signs. Also testscan pick up things, but sometimes these things
don't match; the signs and symptoms don'tmatch. And with infections, it's very difficult to try to piece the signs and symptoms togetherbecause both of them can create a similar outcome. Bacterial infections can create feversin the body or temperatures that can create tiredness; all sorts of problems can occur,so there's no clearcut way really of finding out. Some people will argue with me that thereis, but in the end, it's not really important. The important thing is basically to find outwhat got the person in this mess, help them overcome it, and prevent them from gettinginto this mess again.
So a couple of telltale signs that will determinethe Candida infection will be the sugar craving. The craving for sugar is the blood sugar drops,particularly around meal times, they'll have some food, they'll go down really quick, they'lldevelop gut problems quickly, many of them after meals. These are things. So look atthe symptoms that are characteristic of Candida infection, which can point you in the directionof that person having Candida, the itching, the bloating, gas, craving for sugar, thevaginal infection, the jock itch, the toenail fungus, itchy anywhere on the body. It's lesslikely that the person's going to have itching in and around their body if it's a bacterialinfection, but it is possible.
But in the end what you're going to find isthat most people with a Candida infection will have a bacterial infection anyway, especiallyin their digestive system. There will be parasites and bacteria and yeast infection there. Allof that needs treatment. Then it becomes less important to worry about what the person'sgot. After doing many, many thousands of stooltests, I can tell you that nearly every patient I see with a Candida infection, we can cultureit and we can see it through a microscopy that that person will also have various kindof dysbiosis or SIBO, small intestinal bowel overgrowth. They'll have bacteria there. Probablyin about 15 or 20 percent of cases, there
will be parasites like Blastocystis, Dientamoebafragilis; they'll be present there as well as the bad bacteria. And the other thing that you probably haven'teven thought about is what about the good bacteriaé Because people with bacterial infectionsmay have not a bacterial infection, they may just have a lack of beneficial bacteria. Andin that case, the bacteria that are generally okay like ecoli may become pathogenic orturn into criminals or quot;militantsquot; as we call them today. Guys with their guns running aroundshooting. We may get that scenario as well. As you can see, there's a lot more at stakehere than just determining whether they've
