Bacterialvaginosis is a disease that's caused by the overgrowth of a type of bacteria that's called Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis. And as the name might suggest, this is the most common vaginal infection. Now I wanna put these really big quotes
around the term infection because the thing that's interesting about Gardnerella vaginalis is that it's a bacteriathat's naturally foundthe vagina. Now some may consider this to be a sexually transmitted infection, which is interestingbecause it doesn't cause
any problems until there'stoo much of it there. So when we look to the causes of bacterial vaginosis, they are all things that change the vaginal environment. That can include acts like douching, so douching, or rinsing of the vagina. The other is having newor multiple sex partners.
And finally, another known cause is the use of antibiotics. This could bethe case of somebody that has a throat infection or a pneumonia that's on antibiotics which will then attackthe bacteria that exists within the vagina andallow Gardnerella vaginalis to overgrow and cause bacterial vaginosis.
So we've touched a little bit on it here, but I wanna aw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. Soorder to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that existsthe vagina. So I'll aw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this upour key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll aw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat existthis sample. So if you really look at it here,
Male Yeast Infection Need internal And External Treatment
First of all, I'd like to thank the many menwho have purchased my book, Candida Crusher,the past 12 months. This has shown manymen also suffer from yeast infections that are interestedlooking at a resolutionand also clearly shows me that yeast infection is not a women's problem like many practitionersunfortunately think it is. Many men suffer from yeast infection of theprivate areas of the inner thigh, of the scrotum orthe rectal area, and also around thepenis, the glans penis. All those areas can ive a guy crazy when they become infectedwith Candida Albicans. I've seen many huneds of men come to mecomplaining of these symptoms. Some of them
have got mild problems and,fact, somepatients are pretty desperate and even suicidal because they've been sent from one to another and given some vaginal cream or some stupid treatment, which generallydon't resolve anything at all. If you're a guy watching this now and havegot a men's yeast infection, I can help you. I've helped many men, so you'll find a lotmoreChapter 4my book on some quick solutions and also yeastinfection hasgot some good ideas on it. So what are you going to do if you've gota yeast infection and you're a guyé You just going to use Vagisil or something like thatéDon't laugh, but this is something that many
men have told me that's been recommended tothem by their general practitioner. It's quite a stupid treatment. Yeast infection requires internal treatmentas well as external treatment. It's very important you tackle this area on a couple of differentfronts if you want to get a good resolution. Internal treatment, I mean you need to cutout alcohol for some time. So if you're a guy watching this now and you've got a yeastinfection of the penis or the rectal area iving you crazy, it's itchy, and you'reinking beer or wine or spirits and you think you can cure it with some cream, well, you'rewasting your time. You need to make some changes.
You really need to make some changes to yourdiet and lifestyle long term to stop feeding this yeast infection, to reduce the food supply. It's very important that you consider thispoint that 'm making here. I've seen all too many people who just consider it an externalproblem that needs a cream. So you can read more of my writings on ericbakker as wellregarding diet and lifestyle. You need to need make changes. So what kind of changesdo you need to makeé What I think is one of the better diet approachesfor the guy is the MEVY diet, so meat, eggs, vegetables, and yogurt. So a kind of Paleoapproach is going to work well, but I don't
want you just eating a whole bunch of meat,barbeques and foods like that and ribs. You need to have plenty of vegetable matter aswell, green leafy vegetables. The fermented and cultured foods are important,too, to put good bacteria back into the body, so good quality yogurt and kefir is also good.Kefir is quite an important food to eat to put lots of beneficial bacteria there. Changeof pH of the gut. But probably by far the biggest one for males is cutting out alcoholfor some time. I'll tell you now, guys, if this problem is really iving you crazy,and you are really at your wit's end and want to get rid of this problem, you need to listenup. You need to make those changes because
treating this thing purely on the externalis a waste of time. Okay. It really is a waste of time. You can cure this thing completely.I had really bad jock itchmy 20s to the point where it ove me nuts. I was itchingand scratching the skin. It was bleeding. Having a shower or going swimming was justa nightmare. It was pain. It stopped me from wanting to have relationships. I got verydepressed over the whole thing, so if this is you right now, I've been where you are. You can cure this thing completely, rightéBut you need to make those changes for at least three to six months, and you need todo the external treatment. And you can read
How To Treat Male Yeast Infections
How to treat a male yeast infection. That'sa question I get asked quite regularly. How do I treat this problem that I've goté Whatdo I do to overcome ité Many men that I speak with with male yeastinfection think that they can cure this problem with local treatment. That's what they do.They just put some cream on or they take some pills, and they're going to cure this condition. It doesn't really work like that. You needto look more at a holistic treatment program. If you have a look at my website, yeastinfection ,or if you purchase my book, Candida Crusher, have a look at Chapter 7 and you'll see thatit's a fivestage process. If you put this
program together properly and tackle it fromfive different areas, you're going to actually get rid of this thing. It could take threemonths. It could take four months. It could take six months, but you're going to wihis thing out, and that's the aim. That's what you're trying to achieve. You're tryingto get rid of this yeast infection, and you can achieve that by following my fivestageprogram. So let's just talk about that fivestep program now. One of the most important of all of thesefive stages is eating the correct kind of food. There will be a lot more tutorials youcan read about the Candida Crusher threestage
diet, but I'll give you a bit of a brief overviewon what this diet is. Basically, we start off taking junk out ofpeople's diets and do what we call quot;the big clean up.quot; We remove all the crap. We takealcohol out. We take out all the junky foods, the soda inks, the candy or the sweats,the pizzas, the takeaway food, a lot of the crappy foods that people eat, lots of whitebread, jams and things like that. We take a lot of sauces out of the tomato sauce witha lot of sugarit, we've got to get rid of that. We get rid of a lot of the high sugarfruits out of the diet. We take out a lot of foods that contain lots of sugar, processedfoods, for example, not a very good idea to
have. We're trying to really look for a dietwhich is highgood proteins, lean meats, eggs, plenty of vegetables and also some yogurt,these are good foods to eat. Stage two, we're going to look at immunityand stress,particular, and also what I call the metabolites of Candida. It's veryimportant for you to understand that poor immune function leads to a stage where you'regoing to get certain hormones produceda lesser amount, so your immune system is,in fact, powered a lot less than it should be. So unless it's powered up, you can't reallyget rid of this infection. Not many people focus on stress and poor immunitywhen it comes to eradiion of Candida. They
tend to look at killing Candida and gettingrid of sugar and using antifungals, but they don't look at powering up the immune system.So a big focus of my work is for you to understand that stress and poor immune function willperuate the male yeast infection. You need to get a handle on this. Read some more ofmy articles on stress and you'll understand the connection. The third stage is cleansing and detox, somost people need to clean up their bodies, particularly if they've been inking alcohol,lots of caffeine, poor foods, high stress, they need to clean up their liver and theirkidneys and their digestive system. Having
a clean body means you will be able to getrid of a lot of waste more quickly, and your body's immune system will worka lot greatercapacity as well. Cleansing and detox is a very important part of the Candida program.That's the third element. The fourth element is special foods, supplements,andparticular, dietary supplements. You got food supplements. You got dietary supplements.The sort of special foods you can look at are things like garlic, fresh garlicthediet, and oregano. Oregano is one of my favorite herbs for Candida, but other herbs like thymeand basil and rosemary, these are also very good to use. Coconut, coconut oil is a specialfood. And, of course, there are certain dietary
