Candida Yeast Overgrowth in Men - The Overlooked Diagnosis
While most only associate candida yeast overgrowth with women, candida can also occur in men.
Dr. Dean Mitchell speaks with you about Candida in men and how his patient, Peter, was able to recover from candida yeast overgrowth.
This is a topic that is not widely known or discussed. Many women come to see our practice who are suffering from candida or chronic yeast overgrowth that involves the urinary system which is why a lot of these women go to gynocologists.
Candida is equally prevalent in both men and women.
Today want to speak with one of more interesting patients about what it is like to have candida and how you can overcome it.
Peter has been a patient at Mitchell Medical Group for about 7 years and initially saw Dr. Ricki Mitchell. was in terrible pain, bloating, constant diarhea. Was familiar with the diet as he noticed when he ate certain foods he would "bloat up."
Went to a gastroenterologist in NYC, supposedly one of the "experts," about his symptoms but the doctor "didn't have the slightest clue about yeast infections." As a result, Peter read more information online and went to Indonesia to purchase anti-fungal drugs. And this was the first time he was able to get some relief.
Candida starts in the gastrointestinal tract - something most people don't realize. It's supposed to be part of our system but it has to be in balance.
And in Peter's case not only did he see an overgrowth but it spread to his lungs in the form of a tumor in his left lung.
It was the treatment he received at Mitchell Medical Group that stopped the growth of the tumor and kept Peter from needing to have his lung cut out. Once the candida was controlled it actually shrunk the tumor.
While Peter still had gut issues for about 3 years he was able to fully recover as a result of his treatment from the team at Mitchell Medical Group.
We hope Peter's story will help more men not only become aware that men can also suffer from Candida yeast overgrowth but also speak with a holistic doctor like Dr. Dean Mitchell about their concerns.
