Taking Charge of Your Health

Greetings. Eric Bakker from New Zealand, the naturopath
from down under. Right. I got an interesting question here. Eric, will I experience die off if I stop
eating candida feeding foods for 30 days? What can I do? So long, long question. So what I thought I’d do with this video is
give you guys a bunch of different hints and tips on how to avoid die-off, how to stop
this nonsense from happening. Many people see die-off as an unavoidable
consequence or side effect with going onto an anti-candida diet. So people see it in this sense if they stop
eating foods contributing to candida could cause die-off. The people also see this if they start actively
killing or taking things to get rid of candida. So how do you avoid this kind of crap? How do you stop feeling bad when you want
to feel good? With my clinical experience based on … this
is my 34th year now, most people experience die-off because they do things too quickly,
or too harshly, or too strongly. They don’t take their time doing things. They don’t carefully think about things. They don’t think about what they do and the
consequences. And a lot of this I learned from a long time
ago, long time ago when I worked in a health food shop and I used to serve customers. And then when I first started practice a long
time ago, I had a clinic in a health food shop. And people would come and the manager would
serve them or deal with them with different supplements or herbs or dietary recommendations. And then often they’d make a consultation,
I’d see them out in the back. This is back in the ’80s. And I talk to people and I try and work out
where the problems came from. And I found that there a whole bunch of people
that make crazy decisions that would say I want to get well, I want to get well. So they would make decisions and overnight
make changes like very quickly. It’s like my son as a personal trainer and
he said, “Dad, I get sick and tired of new years.” I said, “Why is that?” He said, “Same old same old,” he said. “All these people join the gym and they all
want to get really well so the pay for a years membership. And after one week you never see them again. You know they get a saw backside or a saw
whatever, something hurt, they don’t come back.” I’ve seen the same in the clinic. People make crazy decisions, they do things
very quickly because they want a quick result, and they feel like crap. And then they start saying I’ve got die-off,
why the hell did it happen? So, for example, if you’re going to make diet
change and you don’t want to feel bad, you’ve got to make the changes over a two to three
week period like slowly. Don’t go from zero to hero, you’re never going
to win. It’s just not going to happen. So let’s just say, for example, you’re watching
this video and you’re not eating a very healthy diet. You’re eating quite poorly or you’re eating
a little bit good here and there but eating a lot of poor … making poor dietary decisions
around eating good food. And then all of a sudden you decide to go
on a health kick and people do it every day. So what do you think your body’s going to
do? It’s not going to like it. It’s based its whole digestive processes,
even the output of the enzymes of the stomach and the pancreas and the small bowel, they’re
all built around what you’re currently eating. So when you try to go from zero to hero very
quickly, your body is not going to like it at all and it’s going to fear. You’re going to get bloating, you’re going
to get gas. You could get fatigue or headaches. However, if you made changes more slowly and
started swapping the crappy meals here and there for better meals and just slowly amp
that up and slowly started to drink more water, a few more glasses. You start maybe with one glass per day. After three or four days you have two glasses. Then you have four glasses. Don’t go from drinking five cans of Dr Pepper
and the following day you’re having six gallons of water. Not a good idea. It’s probably not going to make you feel good
and it’s the same with dietary supplements. It’s not a good idea from taking nothing to
taking 30 capsules a day of something. Or from not taking, for example, Canxida Remove,
the formula I make, from not taking that at all or any supplements like that all of a
sudden to taking three or six per day because you’re going to get these forces that start
occurring in the body that can sometimes be hard to wind back very quickly. So when you take things, consequences occur
depending, of course, on the dosage. If you take a lot, you get a strong effect. If you take a little bit, you take a little
effect. So here’s what you do, you start slowly and
then you see how you feel. Then you start push a little bit harder, see
how you feel. And if you’re feeling quite empowered and
good, you can push it even a bit harder. But don’t come in at 100 miles an hour to
begin with. Always think carefully, how crapy is my lifestyle,
how crappy is my diet? What type of supplements am I going to take? Am I going to take quality strong supplements
like Canxida, for example? Just be careful what you do because everything
you do has a consequence and sometimes, if you do things too hard at the beginning, you’re
not going to feel really good at all. And in my opinion, in most cases that’s what
people misconstrue as a Herxheimer reactions or a die-off is that they go too hard out
into things. Take your time. You’ve got plenty of time. And if you feel empowered and good, you can
push it harder, and harder, and harder. And then if you feel discomfort, you can back
off a little bit. That’s how you can avoid die-off in my opinion
particularly that die-off feeling, particularly with the dietary changes and the supplemental
changes. Thanks for tuning in.

  1. thank you Eric for the videos. they are of great help. I ordered canzida kit for the beginners and have a question about Canzida remove: do its ingredients irritate stomach lining ? I have SIBO and gastritis and am a little concerned about taking it for not making my gastritis worse.

  2. Hi, Dr. Becker. Thank you for your program. Could this be caused by die off? I just got a massage and the therapist asked, “did you know you have a rash on the back of your neck?” I’ve been doing a Candida diet for a month now… it doesn’t itch, it’s just there..

  3. Aw I see that the reason a lot of people make bad decisions and quickly change diets over night is because fear is their motivator, theyre scared and want to quickly do what's right, it's also because they simply haven't been informed on how to do it right, so it's innocent ignorance. And actually, the medical field and doctors are to blame as we all know they don't inform patients things when they are ignorant themselves, especially in America, so I don't see it always being this case where people are just stupid and don't want to put forth the work and effort it takes to get healthy, they just simply arent informed how to do it right, hence the reason I came to your videos.
    I just wanted to voice that for those like me, who truly do want to get healthy and I myself changed diet overnight cuz I was determined, and experienced caffeine withdrawal, digestive upset and some die off symptoms and was confused. Thanks for your videos.

  4. If I’m using triphala and have SIBO and Candida, can I experience die off from using the triphala? I feel like I may be experiencing die off despite going slowly and I’m being told that’s not possible (even though triphala can help clean up Candida). Any info is greatly appreciated.
