Brain Fog Depression...one of the yeast infection symptoms?
Yeast infection symptoms may include brain fog depression.
Although there are many other symptoms which could indicate chronic yeast infection, it is particularly important to be aware of how it can affect the mind. Depression help, if you don't know its cause, is not that easy to find.
A report published in the
Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine
(Vol. 14, No. 4, 1999), called Candida Albicans: The Hidden Infection, stated that “severe depression, confusion, extreme irritability and inability to concentrate” can be some of the signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth.
What is yeast?
• Yeast is a micro organism which is classified as a fungus
• Commonly call Candida, it exists in many parts of our body as part of the natural flora
• It loves dark, moist and warm environments for reproduction
Possible Yeast Infection Symptoms:
Like the ultimate “con artist,” it may manifest itself through the following (incomplete) list of symptoms:
• It may be the cause of brain fog depression, memory loss, irritability and drowsiness.
• Fatigue with joint and muscle pain
• Itching, burning and discharge in the genital area
• Bladder infection
• Gas and heartburn
• Headaches and earaches
• Leaky gut syndrome
• Migraine headaches
It is no wonder that chronic yeast infection can go undetected and undiagnosed for years.
PANIC ATTACK DEPRESSION?
Is depression the result of recurrent panic and anxiety attacks, or does it happen the other way round? Does the threat of getting another panic attack produce depression and irrational fear in some people?
Either way, there is hope for those who wish to cope with panic attack depression - without taking medication.

How does yeast grow into an infection and Brain Fog?
Normally it reproduces through the creation of buds which turn into other yeasts. At this point they are still acting as good neighbors with all the other micro organisms in the body. A natural balance exists…
...until they start to dominate and grow out of control.
Like a scene from a horror movie, the yeast begins to sprout appendages called mycelium. These root-like structures have the ability to weaken and penetrate the mucous membrane of the intestines.
A leaky gut syndrome may start to develop due to the vulnerability of the intestinal lining. This causes toxins and allergens to leak into the bloodstream. The all-important immune system is weakened even more.
Other organs of the body are now very vulnerable to infection. Chronic yeast infection symptoms such as brain fog depression become more noticeable.
Why does Candida overgrowth happen?
Candida can be described as an opportunistic organism. Given the right circumstances and environment, it will spread and dominate the other normal flora.
What could be the right circumstances for overgrowth?
Whenever our immune system is under-performing we are vulnerable.
The natural balance between yeast and other flora in the intestinal tract can be upset by:
• The overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics which will indiscriminately reduce the number of good bacteria. Yeasts are resistant to antibiotics.
(The reason for increasing interest in home remedies for yeast infections)
• Eating antibiotic-treated foods such as meat and poultry
• Prescription drugs, particularly the immunosuppressant ones
• Birth-control pills
• Estrogen replacement therapy and cortisone-containing drugs
• Diets high in refined sugar, carbohydrates and yeast products
• Exposure to food and environmental toxins
There are about 180 toxic by-products of Candida and two of them are acetaldehyde and alcohol.
Both of these chemicals can directly affect brain chemistry resulting in Brain Fog Depression.
It is no wonder then that depression, mood swings, fuzzy thinking, irritability, poor concentration and fatigue can be the result.
Of course, these may not be chronic yeast infection symptoms at all. Physical and mental conditions or diseases other than Candida infections might be causing them.
Having a low-functioning immune system could be an indicator of some other problem.

What would I do?
If I thought I had a yeast infection I would definitely consult with a physician who has a good reputation for diagnosing and treating it. I would also inform him about any home remedies for yeast infections that I might be taking or planning to take.
I would be asking repeatedly, "Do I really have chronic yeast infection symptoms and brain fog depression or is it something else?"
Based on self-education about Candida, I would want to know what all my options are, including any non-conventional treatments.
I would do my own extensive research and be open to exploring all treatment approaches such as home remedies for yeast infections.
Many people have had good success in controlling or eradicating the infection by taking enteric-coated probiotics and adopting special diets and other approaches over an extended period of time.
And regarding these home remedies for yeast infection, I would be asking: "What are these people’s testimonials"? and "Can I contact them?" I would be curious to know if they had brain fog depression.
Talking about testimonials...
...check out how people like Linda Allen, a nutritionist, author, health consultant and former yeast infection sufferer from California, permanently cured her own severe candida yeast infection.
