Little Known Candida Symptoms, 4: Depression

Links between candida and depression

Depression and anxiety are two conditions that seem to be overtaking the modern world. In America alone, recent statistics estimated that 16 million people suffered at least one depressive episode, and that depression is the most prevalent psychological condition people face.

But what if your depression isn’t connected to any obvious cause, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or financial woes, for instance? Could there be another underlying cause that influences how you feel? It appears that the answer is, “yes.”

In today’s video, I talk about the little-known symptom of depression as it relates to candida overgrowth, and how you can decrease depression/increase serotonin naturally.

Do you remember what you were doing on April 22, 1970?

I know, some of you weren’t even born back then. Although I was definitely alive at the time, I was still a pre-teen who likely spent the day at school, watching soap operas on TV in the afternoon, and then bicycling to the park with my friends after supper, avoiding homework. I had no idea that what would become an international movement was born on that very day.

Since then, Earth Day has grown to be a global phenomenon.

From its fringe beginnings, the event has expanded every year; by 1990 it had moved beyond the US borders to become an international event. By 2010, despite new conflict and those in opposition to the idea of climate change, “Earth Day prevailed and Earth Day Network. . . launched the world’s largest environmental service project—A Billion Acts of Green®–introduced a global tree planting initiative that has since grown into The Canopy Project, and engaged 22,000 partners in 192 countries in observing Earth Day.” [source].

In fact, according to the official Earth Day website, these days Earth Day is “the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.” [source]

So of course I was more than delighted when one of my favorite companies, NuNaturals, asked if I’d participate in their Earth Day celebrations. And what celebrations they are!
