Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into this tutorial today. You may have seen some of my previous tutorialsregarding menls yeast infections. 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. He wasnlt really a big alcoholinker, but he loved sugary foods. He liked a cigarette. He liked snacking on foods. Andhe didnlt pay a lot of attention to what the

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. Men who wear tight clothing, coveralls, forexample, or sit for long periods of time, who eat at weird times, wholve got shift work,who push their bodies hard. They go hunting
How to Cure an Ear Infection Fast
Hey guys, Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and Nutritionist. Today, I'm going to share with you how to cure an ear infectionfast. I know ear infections, whether it be adults or more commonlychilen, are somethingthat. We don't want chilen living with that pain,dealing with that issue, but we also want to be all naturalthat treatment and reallyhelp support their bodyhealingthe correct way. There are four things you cando to help heal an ear infection fast, and there are four terrific home remedies thatyou want to consider. The first thing you want to do, and you wantto do internallythe ear, is doing garlic
oil. You can buy garlic oil at almost anyhealth food store. Garlic actually has natural antiviral properties, and the majority ofthe time when a child has an ear infection, it is a virus, not usually a bacteria. This is why antibiotics are completely ineffectiveagainst ear infections. In fact, if you go to your primary care physician and they recommendan antibiotic for an ear infection, I would consider if you should use that ornot. Because they really probably don't know whatthey're doing, unfortunately, because most ear infections are viral. Again, garlic oil,a few opsthe ear is an effective treatment.
The second thing you want to be doing is takingsomething called tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, not putting thatthe earbut rubbing it all around the outside of the ear. Tea tree oil has powerful antisepticproperties. It's been used for huneds of years for the natural treatments of woundsand infections. Again, I would do tea tree oil a few ops.You can mix it with a little coconut oil as well. Rub it all over the ear and all aroundthe ear area. Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is a very, very effective naturaltreatment. The third treatment is actually chiropracticcare. Chiropractic has been shown to be very,
very effectivethe treatment of ear infections.What can happen is the spine can misalignthe upper neck, and that can actually affectthe way the body heals and those nerve signals getting from the brain to that area and justaffect the overall healing. We've actually seen. Bring your child toa wellness or a pediatric chiropractor. They can do a very light manual adjustment to thechild. Often sometimes they even just do some light tapping or use an instrument. That canactually heal an ear infection quickly as well. Last but not least, you've got to get to theroot cause of what is causing the ear infection
the first place. One of the most commonthings is food sensitivities. If your child is allergic to gluten, to certain things likelactose or caseindairy, to nuts, to citrus, to a load of things, that is actually oneof the biggest causes of ear infection today. What I would consider doing is getting yourchild what's called an I.G.G. food sensitivity test and actually getting them tested forfood allergies, food sensitivities, or food intolerances. That's one of the big thingsto look for. You can get those tests done. They're fairlyinexpensive. Or, if you don't want to do that, then just really watch and listen to theirbody. Notice if they're consuming certain
types of conventional cow's milk or glutenthat can cause the ear infections. But justgeneral for almost everybody outthere, if your child is getting ear infections, you should get them off gluten and off conventionalcow's milk. If they want to do a little bit of goat's milk yogurt, or something like that,or goat's cheese, most kids do fine with that form of dairy. Again, the conventional cow's milk, the glutenin grain products, those are probably the two biggest culprits when it comes to causingear infections. Again, remember those four things if you wantto help remedy your child's ear infections.
