Thyroid: connection with depression

The dysfunction of the thyroid gland is characterized by an excess or below normal production of the so-called thyroid hormones (thyroxine or T4 and triiodothyronine or T3), which have a determining role in many processes of the body and including some cognitive processes . In the first case it is a hyperthyroidism and in the second one a hypothyroidism.

However, it should be noted that both diseases are related to the dysfunction of emotions, even when they present a clear physical symptomatology:
Hyperthyroidism: tachycardia, increased appetite, weight loss, diarrhea and heat sensation.
Hypothyroidism: decreased heart rate, loss of appetite, weight gain, feeling of fatigue, less tolerance to cold.

As can be seen, it is an opposite symptomatology. But, nevertheless, both diseases have a common point: it can cause clearly depressive symptomatology, which does not necessarily imply the existence of a depression. And this is more noticeable in the case of hypothyroidism, which can cause fatigue, weight gain, apathy, depression, inability to concentrate and memory problems.
It is not uncommon, in fact, that some of these patients are diagnosed and treated for depression when in fact they have a problem with the thyroid gland that adequately treated would reverse that depressive symptomatology, as long as there was no real depression.

It must be borne in mind that depression is also associated with a series of somatic symptoms common to many pathologies, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism: unjustified weight loss or increased weight as a result of hyperphagia, insomnia or hypersomnia, psychomotor agitation or slowing, fatigue or decay or decreased ability to concentrate.

That is why currently it is recommended that patients with depressive symptoms are made a measurement of thyroid hormones in order to rule out or confirm the existence of a dysfunction of the thyroid gland. And this is more important as a treatment with antidepressants not only will not be effective in patients with hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, but they can suffer the important side effects associated with these drugs: sexual dysfunction, weight gain, sleep disturbances, etc.

Candida affects your mental health

There is a connection between candida and depression. It is an event imaginable from the moment when there is a connection between a chronic illness or pain and a depressive mental state.

But aside from the imagination, there are many experts who have studied the relationship between candida, that fungus that causes candida when it multiplies in the intestine, and depression or mental health in general.
Following William Crook and his work The Yeast Connection, yeasts are unicellular living organisms that are neither animal nor vegetable. They live on the surface of all living beings, including fruits, vegetables, cereals and skin. They are part of the micro flora (small plants) and contribute in various ways to the health of their host. The yeast itself is nutritious and small amounts of yeast give the bread a good flavor. Yeast is a type of fungus. Mold, fungi, monilia and candida are names that are used to describe the different types of yeast.

A family of yeasts, the candida albicans, lives normally in the warm interior folds and in the clefts of the digestive tract and the vagina. When the immune system is strong, candida yeasts do not cause problems. But when broad spectrum antibiotics are taken for diseases such as acne, respiratory infections or cystitis (bladder infection), these drugs knock out friendly germs while knocking out enemies.

Yeasts of the genus Candida are not affected by antibiotics so that they multiply and increase large families. These yeasts create toxins that weaken the immune system. So you can experience repeated infections. Each infection is treated with another round of antibiotics, encouraging greater growth of fungi, and a vicious circle.

A diet rich in sugar and other simple carbohydrates promotes the overgrowth of yeast.
The Depression.

Millions of people in the world suffer from depression. Many of those people have taken Prozac, Zoloft and other medications. These medications, like many others, can cause adverse reactions. Because of this possibility, many therapists say that these drugs should not be given to people without looking for the physical and psychological causes of depression.

Just like fatigue, headache, premenstrual syndrome and other chronic ailments, depression can have many different causes. On the other hand, these causes are often multiple. According to our experience, candida albicans occupies a prominent place in this list of causes of depression, especially in women between the ages of 25 and 45 years.

If you suffer from a depression or any other disabling disorder and have a history of repeated or prolonged antibiotic treatments, persistent digestive symptoms or recurrent vaginal infections, prostate infections, inguinal tinea or nail fungus, a comprehensive treatment program that has medications Oral antifungals and a special diet can provide relief from that recurrent depression.
Depression tends to make its way little by little, so it is difficult to determine when or how it started. The depressed person wonders what is causing those persistent sad feelings. Sometimes depression is caused by an emotionally distinct event or traumatic situation, of which the person is almost always aware. However, depression is very common nowadays, and in most cases the person has no idea what is causing the feelings of sadness and is afraid to seek a treatment for their depression. In these cases, the Candida overgrowth is a cause. Why?

Depression is definitely a brain abnormality. However, in most cases there is nothing really harmful in the brain. On the contrary, the impurity of the circulation that feeds the brain is what is causing the symptoms. The proper treatment of candida is very effective in elucidating depression and restoring a positive outlook on a person’s life. Hope and reasons to live are recovered. These improvements are usually observed within the first days of treatment of candida, and continue from that moment.

Schizophrenia
Regarding candida and mental health, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer, one of the pioneers in the nutritional treatment of mental disorders, noted in his book Nutrition and Chronic Mental Illness that Candida infection is one of the lesser-known causes of mental illness. schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is a mental condition with genetic basis and according to recent research, there is a genetic impact of gut microbiota in this mental illness.

Microbes impact on cognitive functions and basic patterns of behavior, such as social interaction and stress management.

The effect of this microbiota extends beyond the digestive tract, and influences the development and functioning of the central nervous system

The brain and the intestine are directly connected by the vagus nerve.

Clostridium difficile is a “bad” bacterium, one of the most harmful bacteria following the course of antibiotics.

Professor Bernard Berthet, who is an expert bacteriologist, argues that pathogenic intestinal bacteria, such as the Clostridium family, secrete neurotoxins, which produce numerous neurological diseases. To treat these diseases, the intestinal flora must be recovered. But the innovative thing proposed by Prof. Berthet is to be done simply with a diet and probiotics, no antibiotics.

The idea of ​​prof. Berthet is “starve” pathogenic bacteria. For this, it must be investigated what foods are feeding these bacteria.

Dr. Mariano Bueno follows the same direction in the case of candidiasis. You have to “starve” the candid and pathogenic germs of the intestine.

For this, it is essential to make a good diagnosis. In Biosalud, the FOODINT® (Test of food intolerances), CANDITEST® (urine analysis to detect the existence of intestinal infections) and KOPROCHECK® (stool study of the intestinal flora and culture) are performed. for intestinal bacteria and fungi)

We see with all these investigations the connection between a disease such as candida and depression or mental illness. The intestine and the brain are clearly connected, which is why many doctors call the intestine “the second brain”

I personally recommend natural medicine like this to control Candida

Soft Drinks, are really light?

We thought we knew all about light foods that exist in the market that must have a 30% reduction in their energy value as indicated by current legislation, but the Consumer Services of  Andalucía are controlling these so-called light products and demonstrated that light refreshments are not as light as they say.

Nine samples of soft drinks were analyzed to analyze the alcoholic strength, sugars, sweeteners and fat and to contrast this data with the denomination of light and the declared in the labeling, which is the only information accessed by the consumer. The results unfortunately show that three of the analyzed beverages did not have fewer calories than they should have because they are light.

Light products normally have a higher price justified by their healthier character, because they have a lower energy value, less fat and / or sugars. However, light soft drinks are not so light but they are still expensive and are called as if they were, confusing the consumer.

This type of control campaigns are very useful to defend the consumer and to validate the information that is offered to us.
For the moment, what we should do is reduce the use of these products that most cases are not necessary, but we can also compare the calories that the light product that we want to consume with another non-light product of the same brand, and we will know there if in fact it is a food with reduced calories or if on the contrary, they are called light without really being it.

We must put all these types of products under the microscope before consuming them effectively and not blindly trusting in the energy reduction they declare.
