1. Why is my SIBO treatment not working?
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is when increased number of bacteria overtake the small intestines. This can even happen with the overgrowth of friendly bacteria. The bacteria thrive off of the sugars and starches that you consume as part of your diet. It produces large amounts of methane and hydrogen gas. As a result, SIBO causes bloating, burping, flatulence (commonly known as farting), especially after the consumption of wheat or other carbs. Along with passing gas, the bacteria are also the reason behind abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, intestinal cramping.
If the protocol to treat your SIBO is not working, it could be that you were misdiagnosed with SIBO but are actually dealing with a candida overgrowth. Many of the digestive symptoms are similar (gas, bloating, indigestion, nausea, etc), but the treatment is different for both. What will work to treat SIBO will not be used to treat a candida overgrowth. When misdiagnosis occurs, those who actually have candida are discouraged with the lack of results with their SIBO treatment. We recommend speaking with your general practitioner, after not seeing any major results, to discuss testing for candida. Once you have been properly assessed for it and if you do have it, you may begin your treatment.

2. Why am I unable to treat my arthritis effectively?
It depends on what type of arthritis that you are dealing with. There’s different forms of arthritis; osteoarthritis (wear and tear of the joints), rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune arthritis), gouty (uric acid buildup inside the body).
Erik Bakker says that osteoarthritis is not linked to Candida. This is the general wear and tear of the joints which can be caused due to genetics involving back, hips, knee joints. On the other hand, rheumatoid arthritis is more inflammatory in heat and painful by nature. RA is mostly linked with the inflammation of the wrists and fingers, which are smaller joints of the body. It is autoimmune in nature where the immune system attacks different joint tissues.
Many people who have gut related issues also deal with arthritis. If you get your gut health in check, it may help with arthritis. Once you treat your bloating, gas and other digestive issues, your arthritis will be better too. A good and healthy gut system will help the joints in rebuilding. By constantly following a healthy diet, your digestive system will improve and which will affect the rebuilding of your joints. Detoxification may also be necessary, particularly in the early stages of treatment of arthritis.
Those suffering with RA should get tested for a fungal infection. A stool test can determine any inflammatory gut condition related to candida.

3. Why do I keep getting parasites? They show up in my stool as well.
Feeling tired, having sleeping problems, cramps, weight issues, bad breathe, and mucous in stool are some of the symptoms of having a parasite. There is an endless list of such symptoms. Parasites are found everywhere – they live in air, food, water. They find their way into our systems through breathing, eating or drinking. Once the parasites get in our bodies, it’s very important to take care of them by eliminating them. Otherwise, they can really wreak havoc in someone’s body, physically and mentally.
There are also parasites which live in our bodies naturally. They can show up in stool on their way out. While there are countless other parasites, there are two kinds that show up often in stool: blastocystic hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis. If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, you may be one of the 40% of population who have Blastocystis in their digestive tract. This bug is not native to any specific continent – it can be found anywhere in the world. Parasites are usually transmitted from person to person and generally due to poor hygiene, coming into contact with contaminated water, playing with animals, etc.
Best thing to do to avoid parasites is to ensure you are always washing your hands, especially after going to the washroom and before eating food. If your doctor confirms that you have a parasite situation, you will be put on metronidazole or Flagyl which are some common drugs to treat a parasite condition, such as Blasto. However, you shouldn’t depend only on the drugs to help you get rid of the parasites. You could also look into Canxida to treat parasite overtake. Canxida is both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. For more on this topic, you can watch Eric Bakker’s video here.
4. I have extremely dry mouth. What is the cause?
You may dealing with esophageal thrush. Esophageal thrush is the yeast infection of the esophagus, also known as esophageal candidiasis caused by Candida albicans. People with compromised immune system are most likely to get the thrush of the throat. Symptoms include white lesions on the lining of the esophagus (cottage cheese like), nausea, dry mouth, difficulty swallowing or eating. Sometimes those who have esophageal thrush tend to also get oral thrush as well (on the tongue).
To get diagnosed, you will need to be examined by a doctor. They will look down your throat to see if the thrush is on your throat and if so, to what extent. Once it has been determined that you have esophageal thrush, you can start treating it so that it doesn’t spread to other parts of the body. You may need to get on antifungal medication. For mild cases, you will be given a cream to put inside your mouth. Fluconazole might be prescribed for most moderate to severe cases.
To prevent esophageal thrush, you can avoid the use of antibiotics if not necessary, practice a healthy oral hygiene, see your dentist regularly for check-ups, avoid sugar and carbs. Rinse your mouth first and then brush your teeth. Keeping good oral hygiene will prevent the spread of the thrush to the digestive system. If left untreated, the thrush can be painful. It can effect eating habits as well.

5. I keep getting hives. What is the cause of it?
Hives, also known as urticarial, is the inflammation of the skin. They are large red rashes which are itchy and rise up. Regular hives can be caused due to an external irritant that comes into contact with the body either by ingestion or through the skin. Food allergies can cause hives as well. Candida species can evoke certain immune responses. Hives, an immune response, which is linked to the production of histamine. Histamine causes swelling, itching and redness. There is definitely a link to immune system imbalance.
If you have a family history of hives, you will be more prone to getting them as well. Chronic urticarial is when someone gets hives more often than the average person. This could be due to a genetic predisposition to allergens. So there might be a correlation with people who have recurring hives and who take antihistamines often to treat the hives and those who are prone to developing yeast infections.
If you suffer from hives, you should consider going on a diet where you take out key allergens out to see how you fare without the presence of those allergens in your body. Most food with allergens are dairy products, eggs, soy, wheat, tree nuts and some others. They seem to be some of the key allergens. If you suffer from hives regularly, you must take those foods out of your diet or do an elimination kind of protocol.
