Is Tuna Good If You Have Candida?

Is Tuna Good If You Have Candida?

Hello, again. It’s Eric Bakker, back again,
naturopath from New Zealand, author of Candida Crusher, creator of the YouTube channel that
you’re currently looking at. Thank you so much for checking out my video. I do appreciate
it. We’re going to talk about tuna today, tuna
fish. We’re going to talk about fish and probably protein consumption a bit in general. There
is a lot of fear factor regarding tuna and ocean fish in general. I’ve just spent probably
a good half an hour looking on the internet at different websites, Candida websites and
various other sites, sites regarding food consumption and healthy diet in general. And
a lot of people now are worried about fish. Many people now believe you shouldn’t even
eat ocean fish because it all contains mercury. Many people now are starting to post blogs
that you shouldn’t eat any sea creatures at all because they’re all radioactive from the
Fukushima fall out that we had in Japan. For God’s sakes, next thing people will tell you
to stop breathing air because it’s toxic that you should maybe buy bottled air and breath
that. As I’ve mentioned in a previous video, I had
a very good friend who subscribes to a top health magazine from the US, but he gave up
on it because he said every time I open it up, there was something else that was supposedly
going to give me cancer if I didn’t watch out. He said, “In the end, I thought, well,
if something’s not going to kill me, something else will kill me to cancer,” so he gave up
subscribing to this magazine. Is tuna okay? Is tuna not okay? Here’s what
I want you to carefully think about. It all depends on you. It depends on how much you
eat. It depends on your body in general. Eating any kind of protein, you’re going to take
a risk that that protein could have some kind of contamination regardless of what kind of
protein it is. Regardless of what kind of animal it is, whether it’s a bird, whether
it’s a cow, whether it’s a sheep, whether it’s a fish, animals in general can contain
lots of chemicals. If you want to drill it right down and get anal, what about if an
animal, even an organic animal, has a high fear rate because it’s going to be killed
and it secretes a whole lot of hormones, cortisol and adrenaline into its system. That meat
become toxic. “Hang on a minute, isn’t organic meat supposed to be good for you?” Well, not
if the animal knows it’s going to be killed. This can create quite a nasty situation for
animal and also for the person who’s going to eat the animal.
It depends on how you want to take this. I personally don’t have a problem with tuna.
I do eat tuna. And I’ll tell you why I eat tuna. Some research I did online last year
was quite interesting. If we get a look at fish like shark, tuna, swordfish, the bigger
kind of fish species that are prone to building up mercury levels in their body, the interesting
thing is that these fish also have high levels of selenium methionine build up in their body,
too. You can do your own research. Selenium tends to be in these animals by default at
higher levels to get rid of the mercury. There is some debate now whether mercury in fish
really is an issue or not. I do know from some of the stuff I’ve read
online from the EPA, the environmental protection association in the states, they were worried,
particularly a few years ago, about a lot of the fish internally in the US in the lakes
with mercury. How could mercury get into lakes in Northern America? For a couple of reasons.
Area where a lot of gold is being mined, mercury was used in the process of extracting gold
from particularly types of ore. It was used as a by-product and it was dumped, so you
can find mercury in rivers and lakes. Also another crazy thing you might not have thought
about is until several years ago, they put these special caps on top of crematoriums.
They’re burning so many deceased people that the mercury fillings are being vaporized and
again this would just come down like acid rain, would be dumped into mountainous areas
and this would wash into rivers, lakes and streams. In fact, some of the lakes are so
full of mercury that they actually don’t even want people to swim in them anymore. From
crematoriums, would you believe it? What a crazy thing.
Can you eat tuna or not? Eat albacore tuna. I like pole caught, so you can actually buy
now tuna that’s been caught with poles not with nets. I don’t like the idea of consuming
tuna from companies that use large amounts of nets and have dolphins and turtles as a
by catch. So you can actually shop around online and read about how tuna is caught.
If it’s caught sustainably with poles by small companies in certain parts of the world, you’re
going to really help to provide for those families. You’re going to be eating fish that’s
caught in a sustainable manner. It makes a lot more sense to me. Albacore tuna is a smaller
tuna. Blue fin and yellow fin tend to be the really big tuna. So the bigger the fish and
the older it is, the more likely it’s going to have higher levels of a metal in its body.
But the amount of tuna you’re going to eat, come one, for God’s sakes. Are you going to
eat a kilogram of tuna per day? You can have a can. You’re probably not going to eat tuna
every day. Eating tuna here or there, especially if it’s packed in spring water or a good olive
oil. I tend to avoid the ones in vegetable oil or soy oil or those crappy kind of oils
because you don’t know where they come from. But if it’s a reputable brand, I’ve got no
problem with it. Don’t get anal about this mercury thing.
Chances are as I mentioned in a previous video, you’re talking on your mobile phone. If you’ve
got a mobile phone, you’re using regularly, if you’re on Wi-Fi all the time, chances are
the damage to your DNA or your cells is going to be far greater than the microgram amount
of mercury you may net from fish. If you’re worried, do a hair analysis. You can even
do a provocation urine test. Get a DNPS injection or take some DMSA tablets, what we call a
provocation test. You’re going to pee out urine that can be assessed for mercury and
lead and other metals. Look, everyone has got metals. Every single person on the planet
will have some degree of heavy metal toxicity ranging from miniscule up to serious. But
is it causing them a problem, I can tell you now, I’ve tested many, many people over the
years who’ve come back with metals in perfectly good health. And I’ve tested many people who
come back with no metal at all that are really sick. But is it all mercury to blame?
We seem to have developed this blame culture in society. Today gluten’s the blame. Last
week mercury was the blame. Every so often, there’s another kind of substance that we
blame for our ill health. We don’t look at ourselves. We’ve got to blame somebody else
or some other substance that makes us sick. I went through a phase probably about 20 years
ago where I blamed everything on mercury. Where everyone had to their mercury fillings
taken out. My wife has had mercury fillings ever since she was a little girl and she’s
now 50. She’s in perfect health. So you can’t necessarily point a finger at mercury and
say it’s the main cause for Candida. A website I just looked at said that nearly
all cases of Candida are caused by mercury. What a load of crap! There are many people
out there with amalgam fillings that are not sick. Dr. David Quigg from Doctors Data in
Chicago, America’s premier lab for heavy metal analysis, said to me, “Many people can detoxify
mercury perfectly well from their system, especially if they don’t load up on Budweiser
beer and drink gin and tonics every night and smoke 10 cigarettes a day. If you don’t
create massive toxicity levels and you eat good food and you regular cleanse yourself,
you’ve got a good ability to reduce a lot of this crap from the body.
If you pollute the hell out of your body, of course things like mercury are going to
be bad, especially if you eat 10 cans of tuna a day. Use your head. A lot of this stuff
is common sense that we’re talking about. A tuna salad here or there. Eating a fresh
tuna steak here or there is perfectly okay. Don’t freak out about these kind of things.
It’s all common sense. There’s plenty of ocean fish that are still safe to eat, especially
the young species, the smaller fish that haven’t had a long life span or the ability to gather
a lot of these toxins in their body. My wife and I eat fresh fish twice a week.
We love eating fresh fish. A Candida website I just looked at said to avoid all ocean fish
because it’s all toxic. You need to be careful of red meat consumption. Try to keep it to
500 grams, which is about a pound or less per week. All red meat, regardless if it’s
organic or not. I prefer to eat fresh fish as one of my primary proteins, certified free
range eggs, tofu, and protein from things like chick peas and legumes and things like
that, nuts and seeds. I prefer not to eat a lot of red meat anymore. I prefer to put
that on the back burner. There you have it. Tuna is okay. Small amounts,
high quality product, not a problem at all. Don’t worry. None of us are getting out of
this alive anyway. We’re all going to die. Don’t freak out. Thanks for tuning in. Don’t

  1. Hi Eric, I love your channel. I eat a fair bit of red meat due heavy monthly menstruation – can you recommend an alternative for iron. I can't eat eggs. Should I reduce the red meat and take an iron supplement instead? Thank you

  2. good to hear as i am currently eating tuna. ps got my new shipment today and notice the improved top on Canxida Remove. pretty cool.

  3. Hi Eric, I think your videos are great, you speak clearly and you make things easy to understand. Have you ever had any patients that get unwell after exercise?

  4. "Drill it right down and get anal". I recently just came across your channel. Absolute legend you are. All the way from Ireland
