Candida Question #41 Is Depression Related To Yeast Infection?

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.

Candida Question #40 Can I Have Yeast Infection With No Symptoms At All?

Well, they can, but it’s highly unlikely, more likely that they are experience symptoms but not really noticing that they actually have the symptom themselves. The symptoms may be noticed by those around them. It could be digestive noises or it could be body odor. And it could be likely that this person has had these symptoms for so long that they’ve actually grown used to them, which is quite common.

Many people are used to having odd bowel motions, lots of gas and burping, particularly men will find this most amusing and a normal part of being a male. And some women may experience recurring vaginal infections and find this a normal part of being a woman. It’s not until they talk to friends or family or their doctor that they realize that these are not a normal part of being male or female. In fact, they are symptoms of an underlying yeast infection.

Yes, somebody usually has got a symptom or a sign with having a yeast infection that will be apparent, maybe not to them, but may be to other people. If you’ve got family or friends and you’re concerned about something that you think could be Candida, perhaps talk to your health care professional or a trusted friend, and they may be able to tell you whether they believe it’s a normal occurring thing or not.

Candida Question #39 Nothing Has Helped Me Treat My Yeast Infection What Should I Do?

How much is all this going to cost me? If I need to buy your dietary supplements, I’ve spent a small fortune already on supplements and a lot of money on practitioners and various pills and potions over the years, and it has gotten me nowhere.

Well, I think you need to take a good long hard look at what you’re doing if you’re not getting results. It’s easy to blame people when, in fact, you may not really be doing things properly yourself. Supplements do work, but they’ll only aid and assist you, in particular, when you’re on the right track with your diet and lifestyle. So if you’re doing everything right and, particularly, if you follow a lot of my advice in my book, Candida Crusher, and you’re still not getting the results, there’s something you’re doing that’s not right or there’s a block. There’s an impediment to your cure and you can read about that in my book as well in Chapter 7, right at the end I explain a bit about obstacles to cure.

Supplements shouldn’t have to cost you a great deal of money, but expect to pay anywhere between $2 up to $5 or $6 dollars per day for the first several months. That’s not a lot of money when you think about it, you’re probably already now buying beer, wine, ice cream, take-out food, going to the movies or football or whatever it is that you like to do, and a lot of money will go into these habits. So sometimes just by cutting back on these habits and investing a little bit of money into a high-quality product can turn you right around.

I’ve often found also that discontinuation of these habits can also help to prevent many chronic diseases down the track. And a fact is many people spend a lot of money and more money on their health in the last three months of their life then they do all their life. And often then it’s too late to turn things around. So preventative medicine is the best medicine. So a small amount of supplement taken for a prolonged period of time to aid in your recovery along with a correction in dietary and lifestyle habits will get you back on track. It’s not a matter of looking at how much things cost, it’s really looking at the effects and result you’re going to get from what you do. So there’s a big difference between what something costs and the benefit you derive from it. That’s an important thing that I’d like you to look at.

So it shouldn’t cost you a lot of money when you think about it. And cutting back on a lot of those habits I mentioned is going to save you money anyway. In fact, you could probably argue that, in fact, it’s not going to cost you anything. It’s going to save you money, particularly, long term with your health, and that’s a very important consideration for you to make.
