Jock Itch Causes Symptoms Treatment by Expert Eric Bakker
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into my tutorial today. Today, we're going to talk about men's yeastinfections, particularly jock itch or itch around the men's private parts, around thescrotum, around the penis, around those areas. This is a condition I see quite frequentlyin males. A condition that ives a lot of guys crazy. In fact, I've had two cases inthe last two days. One a 44yearold male not far from where I live hereNew Zealandand another guyhis late 40s from Wellington, which is the capital of New Zealand. Bothof these cases are quite similar. This is
going to be quite an interesting tutorial, particularlyfor males who've got itchtheir groin region and have had no resolution. Let's start with this 44yearold guy. It'squite an interesting case and many men will be able to relate to thisparticular. Thisguy had an itch that started about a year ago, and it just started around his belt line.He's a hyaulic person, so he's an engineer that deals with hyaulics and repairing trucksand things like that. This guy went to his ; he had a bitof an itch around the belt line, which quickly spread to the groin region. The hada look at this skin rash and did a biopsy
and said, quot;You've got contact dermatitis.quot;He sent this man away with a bunch of creams. I've just made some case notes here. Thispatient came back to the three weeks and the condition was not improved. So the patient got sent to a skin ,called a dermatologist. The patient then got told by the dermatologist it was scabies,which is a mite infection. Again, more creams were prescribed. And again, the same thing,patient came back to the , wasn't going away with the creams, this time wentto another . And this said it was psoriasis.Quite interesting. This gave strong
ugs, steroids, which really knocked thepatient around quite a lot. The patient improved but wasn't interestedtaking steroids andthe patient then went to another . This is number four now. And this said, quot;You've got a fungal skin rash.quot; Finally, we got the correct diagnosis. But what didthe doé He put this man on antibiotics, which I find quite interesting. Antibioticsare not something one would generally give for a fungal rash that he or she has diagnosedas a fungal rash. They will normally give an antifungal ug, butthis case, the decided to give a penicillin based antibiotic. And the condition exploded andnow it went all over his torso, upper back,
neck, around the ears, scalp, all over. I'll call him Gary. Gary said a few days afterstarting treatment, he had a shower and his whole body blew upa terrible skin rash.Since then, he's been to about 14 different people. You're looking at a guy that's beento about 20 practitioners all up with no resolution. Interesting case. Upon examination of the patient, I had nodoubtmy mind that it's a Candida fungal skin infection of the groin and various partsof the body. I found it interesting that nobody offered Gary any advice regarding his dietand lifestyle. Even the natural practitioners
he went to offered only a small amount ofadvice here. My instruction to Gary was to wash the genitalregion, particularly, twice per day with a good tea tree oil based soap and also to usea watersoluble tea tree oil to wash the private area and to spot treat the tough areas withtea tree oil. This was to be done at least twice per day. I also recommended to Garyto go out and buy about 20 pairs of new cotton boxer shorts and to put on new underwear atleast twice per day. This is very important if you're a guy with a fungal yeast infectionis to maintain very good hygiene. Change your clothing often.
Apple Cider Vinegar For Yeast Infection Is Apple Cider Vinegar Good For Candida
Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath from NewZealand, author of Candida Crusher, formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.Thanks for checking out my tutorial. A question I get asked from time to time is quot;Eric, isapple cider vinegar any good for people with yeast infectionséquot; It is. It is very good.But listen up; it's very important for you to get the right kind of apple cider vinegar.Braggs makes quite a good apple cider vinegar. It's a raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar.We have a really nice one hereNew Zealand and the brand is called Coral Tree, and it'sactually made from apples fermentedoak barrels from biodynamically grown apples.Organics are here. Biodynamics are just a
little bit higher than organic, so they'revery, very high quality products when you buy the Demeter certified, which is a funnylittle sort of peanut shape character. The Demeter, I think they call it, certifiionfor biodynamic is an extremely high standard. If you can get a biodynamically certified,beautiful quality apple cider vinegar, which is naturally fermenteda wooden barrel,you've got a really good product. This is a fermented food or otherwise knownas cultured. These foods like the cider vinegar are okay for a Candida yeast infection internallyand externally. Keep away from commercialized, mass produced apple cider vinegarssupermarketsin plastic bottles. They're junk. Just keep
away from that sort of crap. It's the samewith olives and pickles and crap like that from supermarkets that's been commerciallyfermentedlye or justcheap sort of waters with chemicals added. I hate oliveslike that. I prefer to buy olives from those big buckets at the Greek or Italian shopsquot;the way that mama used to make itquot; a long time ago. When you're looking at foods thathave been preserved according to techniques that have been going on for huneds and hunedsof years, you're usually getting a better quality product than something that comesfrom a factory using a lot of white sugar, which is usually a junk product.Vinegar has had a bad rap for a long time
with Candida, but a good quality fermentedapple cider vinegar, there's nothing wrong with it at all. It's great to use as a vaginaldouche. Guys can use it for a jock itch rinse. You can soak your feetapple cider vinegar.You can wash different parts of your body if you've got fungal infections. You can useit on psoriasis. You can use it on your scalp, flaky scalp, danuff. You can soak your toenailsin straight apple cider vinegar. So there are many appliions.It's also really good for your stomach. It can create some burning sensations if youtake it too strong, so you might need to dilute it down. I've also had a patient a while agowith a very itchy rectal area, he got incredible
relief by using enemas with cider vinegarand water. He said the itch went away within a week. It disappeared. So for itching hemorrhoidsit can be used. It can be used for many different appliions.Yes, apple cider vinegar is good to take internally also. Small amounts. You might want to putone or two teaspoons of a good quality, organically fermented and made apple cider vinegar ina glass of water. You can have small sips of that with certain types of foods like highprotein to help you digest protein better. Don't be afraid of having a good quality applecider vinegar like Braggs regularly if you've got Candida. Don't go too crazy on the doseto start with. Go very slow and see how you
go.I hope that answers your questions. Thanks for the question.
