Anxiety Cause: Candida Yeast Overgrowth
by Jen Springer
Itchy butt & private parts, wet ears, and red scaly skin.
YUCK, but this is very real and it is a super common cause of fatigue, anxiety, panic attacks, memory loss, foggy thinking, hormone imbalance, flatulence, toenail icks, and skin rashes.
I was so grossed out by the yeast pictures on the internet, I couldn’t even stomach to post one here. (Search Candida and be ready to gag.) So you got a mushroom! Not remotely close to candida except they belong to the same scientific classification of the fungi kingdom. Outside of that they are completely different, most mushrooms are health giving and candida is health robbing.
Most people don’t know candida overgrowth can be a hidden factor to anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. I have had my own personal struggle with candida for years.
I had many of the typical and common candida symptoms such as:
- bloating around the mid section
- itchy and wet ears
- white bumps on the back of my arms and upper legs
- white coating on my tongue
- inability to lose weight
- anxiety/mood issues
- food allergies
- urinary and vaginal infections
- body inflammation
- brain fog
- insatiable cravings for sugar and breads
- constant dry cough
We are all individuals these symptoms can be the same of different than mine. I even developed asthma at one point! I don’t have asthma! There was so much yeast in my body that it was harbored my lungs too and I would wheeze.
My intestines must have looked like Swiss cheese from the yeast roots taking hold. Candida overgrowth is a levitra major contributing factor to food allergies. Food particles pass through the tiny holes from the yeast (aka: leaky gut) and circulate throughout the body. The body freaks out because it thinks the undigested food is a threat and releases attack chemicals. These chemicals can create feelings of restlessness, anxiety, and even panic attacks.
When the body is full of yeast, the body is at a heightened state and extremely reactive. Emotions run high, hands and fingers wave when someone cuts you off in traffic . Minute amounts of physical exertion create massive inflammation. PMS cramps double you over. Meals result in immediate flatulence, belching, and bloating.

My body didn’t need tranquilizers or the purple pill, it needed the candida killed off.
