How Candida causes heartburn, bloating and other nasty symptoms...

I’m shocked that the medical system doesn’t really consider Candida overgrowth when people have irritable bowels and other ongoing symptoms. Apart from H pylori infection, Candida overgrowth is probably the number one challenge I’ve helped people deal with over the years. It’s really common and causes a whole host of digestive symptoms – oral thrush, white coated tongue, bad breath, heartburn, bloating, constipation, IBS and diarrhoea. Candida can also cause fatigue, mood and memory problems, skin problems, athletes foot, jock itch and dandruff. Here’s a short video explaining Candida in a wee bit more detail: What causes Candida?

What is SIBO and how does it cause IBS?

What is SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) and is it making you feel unwell? The food you eat, the way you eat it, and infections like H pylori, parasites and Candida can all cause digestive symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome. But there’s another common, yet frequently overlooked problem that isn’t very well known. SIBO – or ‘small intestinal bacterial’ overgrowth – is a relatively common condition among people with digestive symptoms. But what is SIBO, exactly? Well, it’s a condition in which large numbers of bacteria from your large intestine, or colon, end up in your small intestine...

Side effects of triple therapy H pylori treatment

The side effects of triple therapy H pylori treatment vary widely and can be pretty nasty, if I’m honest. I didn’t take triple therapy when I had H pylori – I decided on a more natural, herb-based approach. But we’ve received hundreds of emails (thousands, most probably) from frustrated people having a really hard time on triple therapy. As I’ve said before: I don’t necessarily disagree with triple therapy, but I want to raise awareness of its drawbacks so folk like you can make informed decisions on what to do. I’ll be a happy man if you can avoid...

H pylori reinfection – can H pylori return?

“Dave, can H pylori return? Can H pylori come back? Can I have H pylori twice?” … These are common questions asked by folk around the world, and the straight answer is, “Yes, it can return, you can have it twice, and yes you can be reinfected.” Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong, and the reason I know this is because I had H pylori twice myself.
