Depression is now the #1 leading cause of disability worldwide, and there is a little known reason that many practitioners will overlook when trying to help. What does Candida have to do with depression?
Did you know, especially with the recent sad celebrity deaths, MILLIONS are debilitated by the consequences of depression, brain fog, fatigue, insomnia and other related issues that leave them unable to take care of themselves or their families. What 99.9% of people don’t know is a possible root cause to the risk of depression could be CANDIDA overgrowth.
So, what is the risk that bacteria could cause depression?
When we drink alcohol, the liver converts it into acetaldehyde. The literature shows that genetic mutations can cause some people to have extreme sensitivity to alcohol’s effects, which makes them even more susceptible to cognitive issues from candida. (1)
Women have a much higher level of acetaldehyde when drinking alcohol than men, especially those who drink during their high estrogen phase and who take oral contraceptives. (2)
Excess acetaldehyde is what causes hangovers. Candida also produces acetaldehyde!
Candida is able to use both alcohol and sugar for its fuel source. So, it probably makes sense to hear that alcohol is even MORE important to avoid if you have candida. Minimise the risk of depression and avoid alcohol use. If you need help how to do so, either contact us or begin by watching the series,

Among other health factors, too many people accept exhaustion and forgetfulness as “normal.” The truth is: we are not meant to live with such low expectations of ourselves. Evan Brand, your host of The Candida Summit, suffered (and healed!) from candida, parasite infections and bacterial overgrowth.
Even though candida is an important part of your digestive process, if unchecked, it can cause serious damage to your health. Certain lifestyle choices and/or illness can deplete the ‘beneficial’ bacteria in your body to create room for candida growth. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely difficult to test for and diagnose — that”s why they’ve created this important event.
