Can candida lead to depresssion? For the last year, I have been big time depressed and I cant shake it. Its almost like coming from my gut. Does anyone else feel this? Just an empty feeling in the gut and my chest gets tight. I also get chills and Im always cold.
i think Depression is HUGE with candida, so are mood swings, and anxiety. makes it hard to feel like you can beat it! i used to come down on all of my friends behind their backs if they were alcoholics... like they were weak. well come to find i have an alcoholic's appetite for Sugar in my diet - it is HARD to shake! i pity those addicted to alcohol!
I just watched a movie called Food Matters and in it a doctor said that niacin is useful in alleviating depression. The dosage is determined by you. Take as much as you need until you start feeling better. Also I have read that rhodiola is good for depression.
Also check with your doctor about your thyroid because it can affect your body temperature. Also eating seaweeds can help boost your thyroid gland.
