Greetings. Eric Bakker, naturopath. Thanks for coming back. I’m going to do a case study today. We’re going to talk about a 48-year-old lady
who we’re going to call Denise. Her name’s not Denise, of course, I’ve sort
of covered up her details for, obviously, her privacy. So Denise lives in Australia. She does live in Australia. She is 48 but her name’s not Denise. All right? Now, this lady approached me on the internet,
came to me as a patient. These were her prime symptoms: constipation,
bloating, gas, heartburn, bad breath and also some weight loss. She was quite tired. This is a current patient I’m seeing. So, yeah, lots of different symptoms. She’s an office worker, so … And Denise’s
biggest concern, of course, was the halitosis, like the bad breath. She didn’t really like any environment.the
environment she was working in, she was very embarrassed. Her tongue’s coated quite white and the breath
was quite stinky. Now, quite an underweight lady, too. We’re looking at someone who weighs around,
I think she’s around 52 kilograms, about 53 or 52, 53 kgs. So she’s not very heavy at all. That’s probably around about 100 pound or
maybe less than that. Not a very tall woman. She had some testing done. We have her hair test result here, which showed
that many of her nutrients were actually quite on the low side. A hair analysis is a test that’s performed
by many practitioners to determine if the patient has a load of heavy metals in their
body, for example, and what their trace element balance is going to be like and what their
macrominerals are like. So the four main minerals, calcium, magnesium,
sodium, potassium but also all the 17 trace elements. They’re all represented in the hair. And because it’s excretory tissue, we can
see what was in the blood stream at that point in time. And this lady had a whole lot of trace elements
on the low side. So I immediately knew there was a digestive
problem going on. So we did a stool test for Denise in August
this year and we found a very poor beneficial count. The bifidobacteria was no growth. Her Lactobacillus was 1+. Both of those should be 4+. So very low. The Candida albicans was a 1+ live yeast culture. We found no parasites. We also found some Citrobacter bacteria, which
is normal, but this one had grown to a quite high count of 3+. So this is causing her a lot of problems. So you can see the combination of the candida
there and the dysfunctional, dysbiotic bacteria in a high count, easily leading towards … excuse
me, bloating and gas and problems like this. Now, Denise’s doctor diagnosed her with irritable
bowel syndrome, which is so typical that medical people do. This lady’s been scoped. She’s had endoscopy performed. She’s had colonoscopy performed. The blood test came back clear. The gastroenterology examinations came back
clear. Basically, they couldn’t find out what was
wrong with this woman. But a simple stool test found the candida
and the Citrobacter. It also found a low level of beneficial bacteria. Now, we saw this lady early August. We’ve placed her on CanXida Remove, CanXida
Restore, CanXida Rebuild. I started her off on a dosage of one per day,
building up to one of each three times per day. Now, six weeks later, we’ve had a significant
improvement already in this case. We’ve seen a marked reduction in the constipation
and bloating. There is still a little bit of gas but it’s
not so problematic anymore. But the great thing is, Denise’s tongue’s
clearing up, so we’re seeing a nice clearing in different parts of the tongue. She’s gained nearly six kilograms in weight,
in six weeks. So one kilo per week. What’s that? Two pound a week she’s gained. Now, for some people that’s very significant. Everyone talks about weight loss but what
about weight gain? Some people actually want to gain weight,
especially if they’ve had a bowel problem for a while. They’re going to be losing weight. They’re going to be losing vital nutrition. They’re going to be tired. So we’re going to repeat the stool test for
this lady in November. I’m pretty sure we’re going to get quite a
nice result here. And then a subsequent test will be just a
microbiology. Just one sample to determine what’s going
on because she had no parasites. Remember, initially. We just want to see where candida is and where
the bacteria are and then make some final adjustments to her protocol. I would easily say by January, February 2019,
Denise is going to be in great shape after several years of irritable bowel syndrome,
we’ve now got a patient without bad breath, who’s going to lead quite a normal life. A person like this could’ve been walking around
for years and years with depression, anxiety, losing a job, getting fired, all kinds of
problems because things weren’t picked up. And when it was picked up, it wasn’t treated
properly. It just goes to show how a natural approach
can really have a great effect on somebody like Denise and put them in a really good
position where they’re going to have the body size they want, the energy they want, no stinky
breath and a great, functioning digestive tract like I’ve got and like hopefully, you
will develop if you’ve got a dysfunctional one. Our digestive system is silent. It creates no problem, easily eliminations,
and leading to great health. That’s what it’s all about, people. It’s about great health. Thanks for tuning in.

  1. Hello Eric, I have a very curious question, and after finding out this your channel I think you might be one of very few that actually could have a possible answer to it:

    I suspect a lot that I have candida overgrowth (testing is in progress, but I feel I'm one of those cases that followed advices of doctors that know almost nothing about candida or even about how to diagnose it). I had what I think probably were candida lysis syndrome episodes, and seem to have higher than normal blood potassium levels since about the first episode happened few months ago. Now, the question is: in your practice/experience candida can cause hyperkalemia, and most importantly – if yes, why, what could be the mechanism behind this candida-hyperkalemia relation, what candida does/creates that causes potassium to be released from (as I understand) intracellular space into the bloodstream?
