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.

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.
