    In this video, Dr. Berg discussed the difference between yeast infection and candida infection. Yeast is a type of fungus and candida is the most common type of yeast infection. There are 20 types of candida but only the overgrowth that becomes a problem or pathogenic. Normally, we need this candida and fungus in our digestive system and around our body and it is a part of the normal flora and microbiome.
    Locations of Candida Overgrowth:
    • Vagina
    • Mouth
    • Under breast
    • Nail Bed
    • Arm Pit
    • Private Parts
    What Causes this Overgrowth?
    • Antibiotics
    • Sugar
    • Steroids
    • Stress
    • Estrogen
    What to Do for Yeast or Candida Infection
    1. Increase Stomach Acid - Betaine Hydrochloride, Apple Cider Vinegar
    2. Garlic Clove
    3. Probiotic
    4. Avoid Sugar

    My father is a stuck in his ways baby-boomer, I'm trying to help him out as much as I can healthwise.
    I got him down to no added sugar or sweet drinks but hidden sugars are everywhere and if I explain to him why his cereal is bad he looks at me like I'm sure Tucker Carlson would.
    One of his many ailments is bloating, mainly from Brassicaceae, fat, alliums, etc.
    Garlic will make him bloat and he will complain that I'm trying to make him sick and so he'll yell at my mother to make him something that he shouldn't eat ..and the cycle continues.

    I've never had a single fungal infection in my 45 years. Regardless of my high sugar diet which caused severe insulin resistance, antibiotics, depleted stomach acid etc. I found out the hard way my kidneys are not up to scratch when I developed kidney failure taking lose dose magnesium. My kidneys look normal on labs with the exception of low bicarbonate but clearly have some damage from chronic insulin resistance. Biocarbonate back in range but on the lower end now. I am just a bit too acidic for fungus.

The only thing that worked was taking yeast infection meds, Diflucan I think but it still comes back. Currently it's on my lower chest, shoulders and all over my back. I am going to try eating more garlic but PLEASE how do I get rid of this FOREVER?

    The way phenol works... You are given phenol over the span of your lifetime. You will build one or more calcium deposits somewhere in the body, where ever it may fall who knows. Doctor's will claim it's cancer and you will believe them. Phenol causes extreme fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and all the other symptoms of cancer! Phenol causes all auto immune disease's! Sounds unbelievable, but the body can't get sick! Age and gender play a big part of this! This is a test of your faith to GOD! This depends on how much you get if they're greedy you will get a diease that will change your life! This is why dogs get diabetes, hip problems and other health issues! Phenol is under different names, in majority of everything we eat and touch! Example: tires, charcoal, colonge, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc... I'm just listing a few items you can read the rest for yourself! I was given phenol for four years and six months. I was told I had MS, neuropathy, brian infection, part of my brian missing and on my way to being diabetic! I'm almost 100% back to being healthy! Doctors call it a disease when really all you have is nerve damage! The man upstairs won't be mad if you belive what the doctor told you because the doctor may or may know what's going on. He is just doing what he learned from the school this is where learning "practitioner"comes from! I've had multiple disease's! Just a few...swollen lymph nodes, impotence, no sex drive, blind in left eye, extreme fatigue, dragging of my leg, swollen head, depth perception, thick toenails, arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, incontinence, constipation, deficate blood, urinate blood, short term memory loss, long term memory loss, weight loss, anxiety, deafness, fluid leaking from ears, thick dry elbows, crooked toes, receding gums ,lazy eye, dry mouth, excessive wax in ears, spots on fingers and bottom of feet this is just some. Geneva police department has some of this on file! This has been given to you through out your life and you don't know it! Phenol will take four to five years to get out of your system! This is how kids grow out of allergies! Think about this! Age and gender play a big part! This is in vaccines, immunization and meds. Comes in three forms powder, liquid and solid! Causes (supposedly) Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, dementia, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, schizophrenia, suicidal thoughts, MS, lupus, autism, ADHD, impotence, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, renal failure, extreme fatigue, cancer, HIV, anxiety, deafness, bone structure changes, swollen head,speech problems, blindness, deafness, depression, dehydration, anorexia, starvation, constipation, PMS, weight loss and weight gain, numbness, chest pain, suffering, loss of appetite, dark patches on skin all auto immune disease's! Come to find out I have been getting this since birth!!! The human body needs no vaccines or immunization!!! The nerves run the body! I will not argue with anyone about this! Please look this up I'm not lying to you! They were experimenting in death camps! GOD put you here to live not struggle! There are three labs in America; ALK Labs, Labs of Oklahoma, Greer Labs and one in Canada. I'm NOT AFRAID! You fucked my life up since birth and I'm going to repay the favor! All the babies, kids, teenagers, adults, grandparents and pets lives you have taken will be redeemed! Maurice Montez Battle of North Aurora, Illinois. I'M NOT AFRAID! JESUS WALKS

    Had to take antibiotics for infected wisdom tooth 4 years ago. Then noticed slowly that I had yeast infection and not realising I had to eat probiotics during the antibiotics to make it worse continued eating high carb foods . Anyway 4 years later the candida caused all the side effects including depression, high blood sugars. Tried to tell my Dr I'm not diabetic, she wanted to put me on meds. I started to take braggs apple cider vinegar with lemon water and blackseed. The die off symptoms were horrible, high temperature, fast heart beat, sweats, sudden blood sugar dips in the morning which caused me to shake and head spinning. To relieve this I took something called *Indian costus*, an anti fungal/anti viral and bacteria herb that got my blood sugar to normal and reduced the yeast infection, got my energy back, back and muscle pain gone, no more brain fog etc, still taking it, slowly but surely. I'm glad I didn't listen to my Dr, they're just programmed to give medication not to look at diet.

    Hi Dr. Berg. I’m a long time subscriber to your channel and I’ve always wondered why you eat specifically “4” eggs everyday?? I know this is off topic from this particular video but I’m curious if it has to do with calories or nutrition or both? Also, perhaps an idea 💡 for another video, do you recommend sun dried tomatos as a source of potassium? Why are they so high in the mineral, and are they too sugary to be keto friendly?? Any advice would be great! Thanks for all the great work you do!

      Have you tried plain yogurt (like Fage) both internally and externally? I have cured 2 yeast infections with coconut oil internally & externally first. Then at night do the same with the plain yogurt. The yogurt is more soothing than any over the counter cream. Coconut oil causes the candida albicans to explode. Then..the yogurt helps re-establish the good bacteria and it also has a way of assisting the death of the yeast. So during the day do the oil then at night do yogurt. Or do yogurt during day too if it's too unbearable. Mine went away after about 4-7 days.

    • ChaCha Dodds
      ChaCha Dodds Month ago +1

      The connection is likely blood sugar, as in diabetes.
      I suffered with severe & frequent UTI's, for nearly 15yrs, until I discovered this protocol. It worked far better than antibiotics, and I never got another one. You'll also get rid of vaginal yeast infections, & be practically immune to viruses going around.
      First, eliminate sugar. Next, make sure you're staying hydrated; drink plenty of water.
      During an active infection, drink Peppermint Tea; no sugar. As an antimicrobial, it will begin to cleanse the urine, while also soothing & eliminating the awful burning pain associated with UTI's. Forget the Cranberry juice; this works far better. And don't drink coffee, or black tea; it'll only create more problems.
      Next, take two capsules daily of Oil of Oregano, as an acute phase treatment, & one daily as a preventative. Oregano, is antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral.
      Also, take D-Mannose capsules in the same way, as an acute phase treatment, & as a preventative. D-mannose, is a type of glucose, that prevents bacteria from adhering to the walls of the urinary tract, so your body can flush it out.
      As my dad got older, he was constantly getting UTI's, until I started him on this protocol, & he never had another one the rest of his life.
      Hope this helps.

    Thanks for sharing this info. Never had this problem, maybe it's all the sauerkraut I make & eat. Lol. 🤗 Wasn't live yogurt supposedly good for this, or was that just an Old Wives tale, back in the day. IDK.? Take care. 💖🙂🐶

    Hi 👋 Dr. Berg can you do a video on mucus in the body? Dr. Sebi said rid of the body of mucus its the cause of disease.

      Jen & Dog Marty plus Sebi died of ammonia which is what Dr Berg has a video on how to prevent/cure.

      Jen & Dog Marty no it isn’t if you don’t produce mucus that means your at risk of dying early because of no meat in the diet. Steve Jobs thought that was the way to go, he had no mucus because of his strict vegan diet, but smelled so bad, his boss thought about firing him at work. He couldn’t beat cancer because going vegan isn’t that helpful against fighting cancer.

    Any truth to this being what the medical gangsters call cancer?

    Eating Nutritional KETO / Healthy Low Carb will pretty much get Candida/Yeast under control.
    Side note I put My two dogs on a Species appropriate diet. That was an interesting experiment on massive Yeast die off. Carb heavy dog foods are sustainable for a while. But like Humans it takes a huge toll over time. Both dogs are doing Great: Dog-adapting was fun. Glad I did some research first.
    Nutrition is 🔑. 👑

      Victoria Lanning Davis my guess; not a Dr. but.... massive die off happens when you restrict carbs/sugars. Will appear bad but that’s what happens - one needs to let the body correct. Do what you are comfortable with. Adapting/time.

      Remember he eats this way too
      And it’s expensive for him too
      He may get a few perks
      But organic veg and grass fed meat and good fat oils r a fortune by themselves
      Give that a think 🤔

    I had no idea that stomach acid played a part. My doctor put me on betaine a couple of months ago but did not mention that specifically that would help with my candida. I have seen a great decrease in my candida symptoms but I did not relate it to the betaine at all

    What is the difference between taking Apple Cider Vinegar and taking lemon or lime juice as far as creating an acidic environment in your digestive system? Do other types of vinegar have a similar effect to Apple Cider Vinegar? What makes that so unique?

      check Dr. Berg's videos about apple cider vinegar.

    Boron is also a good fighter against candida. This video didnt answer the question though on whether all yeast infections are candida infections and I mean specifically vaginal yeast infections. I have suffered from vag yeast infections for 20 years and I also had systemic candida for which I had other symptoms. My other symptoms of candida seem to have gone away yet I still get vag yeast infections so that is why I clicked on this video as I thought maybe my vag yeast is a different one from the systemic candida

      One capsule is about the equivalent of two teaspoons of the liquid. Most people take that amount either once or twice a day. (Anyways, that's the info I got when I googled it!)

    Pau d'arco is GREAT against Candida. It also will dramatically help with sugar, it works ridiculously well ;)

    • Periwinkle Sky
      Periwinkle Sky Month ago

      +ChaCha Dodds wow. I never tried that one (cause of the price) but I've heard really great things about it. The Pau d'arco for me was kind of an accident. Had a cold one time and I knew it had a lot of benefits so I fasted and drank nothing but that tea 2-3 times a day. And I kept thinking "man, this cold is really bad. I feel terrible"....turns out it was the Pau d'arco tea killing off the Candida (Herxheimer effect). When the cold was finally done, my sugar cravings and cravings in general were completely gone. Coincidentally around that time is when I came across Dr Berg's information.

      It may work for some people; it never did anything to eliminate my Candida, & I tried everything I could get my hands on, for years. Oregano Oil, changed my life. It brought the lifelong problem of Candida, under control, & over the years & decades of using it, I can occasionally indulge in a bit of fruit, or birthday cake, without suffering all sorts of consequences. And it works fast.

      Infinity Reaper I first did a GI MAP and levels of candida came back as not detectable but my functional medicine Dr said that doesn’t always mean you are in the clear so I did a OAT test which is a urine test and it showed a Candida overgrowth.

      what diagnostic tool was used to determine your candida overgrowth?
