Ilve made a few recently regarding jock itch. Anotherpopular tutorial which many people have looked at is one regarding small white bumps on thepenis. In this tutorial today, Ilm going to talk about a condition I see quite a lotmalesand is basically an itching area of the private parts again of the penis and also scrotaland analrectal areas. These tutorial clips Ilm going to do becausetheylre very important and you can understand
why Ilve disabled comments on many of my tutorials.Many YouTube clips I look at are from health care professionals like myself that have gottenvery inappropriate comments. Thatls why I donlt believe I should enable comments onthese tutorials. Pardon me for taking that liberty. Letls continue on. This is an important tutorialbecause this is a condition I seemany men, and this is a condition that not manypeople talk about due to fear or embarrassment. But I can tell you people out there now, womensuffer from yeast infections; we know that, but lots of guys suffer from them, too. Andthey hate them. Theylre embarrassing. Theylre uncomfortable. They just find them awful,but they live with them; they deal with them.
And they go and see their and oftenget a cream and itls ineffective. The causes arenlt adessed and the condition goes onunabated and sometimes for years, and it can ruin a guyls life entirely. Ilve seen dozens and dozens, huneds of menwith this condition. Let me tell you now folks, this affects men from all backgrounds, allincomes, all cultures; it makes no difference whether you are Indian, Muslim, American,or Irish, it makes no difference. If youlre a male and youlve got a penis, youlve gota â€“ obviously you have if youlre a male â€“ a typical guy can be prone to a yeastinfection if the conditions are right. Remember,
yeast likes dark; it likes moist; it likeswarmth. And for this reason, obviously, the groin and the private area and the armpits,these are prime targets for Candida yeast infections. The guys Ilve seen with yeast infections rangeover a wide range of men that Ilve seen with this condition. Ilve seen lots of mechanicswith it. Constructions workers, geologists, taxi ivers, bus ivers, truck ivers;Ilve seen airline pilots with it. Ilve even seen scientists with it and lab workers. Ilvegot a couple of high court judges and many police officers; many, many different menhave this condition. And thatls because men
are men. Men like beer. They like wine. Theylike spirits. They like eating the foods that guys like to eat. They like football. Theylike hunting. They like all the things that guys like to do. As I say, it will not discriminate.This condition is not specific to a particular bluecollar worker or a laborer; it makesno difference what type of guy you are. How is a man going to get the infectioné Well,the typical things we find are imbalancesthe lifestyle. You may have read the casehistory of my fathermy book. Dad liked sweet foods.

Men, for example, who ink alcohol, are primetargets for yeast infections, particularly, when they start taking antibiotics or pharmaceuticalsregularly. Men who take ugs for acidifiion of the stomach â€“ these acid blockers â€“ arealso prime targets. Guys who take any type of pharmaceutical ug over time. Guys whotend to work long hours or shift workers.

Can A Yeast Infection Elevate My PSA
Hello there, Erick Bakker again, Naturopathicpractitioner with Candida Crusher FAQs. Here is another question I get asked occasionallyby males. Can a man's PSA level become elevated dueto a prostate infectioné It certainly can. There are many reasons whyyour prostate may become enlarged. An enlargement of the prostate will cause an elevation ofPSA, whether it's through benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, prostate cancer; but inmy opinion, also due to a yeast infection or another infection of the prostate. When the prostate gets enlargedgeneral,it will cause an elevation of PSA. Now, your
urologist or urinary may disagree withme, but on several occasions I have seen a male's prostate PSA level come down once wetreated a yeast infection. What are some of the reasons why men's prostateswould become affected through Candidaé Beer inking is one of them, excess sugar consumption,having intimate relations with a female with chronic vaginal thrush, and if he's got alow immune system, and particularly if he's under high stress. But I have seen many casesof males with prostate issues, painthe groin, burning on urination, high PSA levels,and many other manifestations of urinary male Candida infection.So to answer the question, absolutely, a man's
PSA can be elevated due to prostatitis, whichcan have a causeyeast infection. Thank you.
