Well, it certainly can in some cases. I’ve seen many patients over the years that had an unresolved yeast infection sometimes spanning 20 years that was never resolved or completely ignored by their health care practitioner, deemed a hypochondriac by family or friends, and these are the sort of patients that can develop a mild or even moderate depression and anxiety.
I can remember myself in my 20s having a yeast infection that was unresolved, and I can remember the days when I got made to feel like a hypochondriac. My doctor wanted me to see a psychiatrist. My girlfriend didn’t believe me. And it was quite sad. And these things actually do occur from time to time. Depression can be related to unresolved Candida in particular.
If you suffer from depression or anxiety and believe you have a yeast infection, I’d recommend that you go and talk to a health care professional that has experience with Candida. And in cases I have certainly seen a resolution of depression once the health improved and the yeast infection was cleared. I certainly believe there is a link between these conditions.
