Candida anxiety

Anxiety and panic attacks are disorders that were virtually unknown not many years ago, and today are of epidemic proportions. 

Anxiety is the experience of intense worry or uneasiness, an inability to feel any calmness, a low-level panic.  Panic attacks are a heightened version of the same, an emotional roller coaster ride causing the body and mind to react as if there were a true emergency.  In both anxiety and panic, the surrounding

circumstances may contribute but are not the driving cause of the symptoms.  In other words, the anxiety and panic are not caused by a previous experience nor by what is happening around you (although your surroundings may serve as a trigger).  They are caused by an inner disorder.  Sleep troubles are also very common with those who suffer from anxiety.

The diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder is the most common conventional label that is given.  Benzodiazepine drugs (which include Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Restoril and the closely related Ambien) or antidepressants are generally prescribed.  These do nothing to address the underlying disorder, but are only given in hopes of suppressing the problem.  Unfortunately, the benzodiazepine class of drugs leads to a subtle but dangerous addiction state in most cases after several months of usage.  This is evidenced by the need to increase the dose from the original dose, and also by the difficulty getting off the drugs.  Psychological counseling has little effect.  Mind or thought control techniques help some people.

What, then, is the underlying inner disorder causing anxiety and panic?

Clinical experience has shown that people with anxiety and panic also have a history of exposure to those risk factors that foster Candida in the body (things like repeated courses of antibiotics, frequent swimming pool use, regular alcohol use, etc.).  When people with anxiety and panic do effective treatment for Candida, these disorders rapidly improve, and in most cases disappear completely in just a few days.  Candida is the cause of almost all cases of panic attacks and anxiety.

The presence of excess Candida in the body results in certain toxic chemicals in the blood which the liver fails to remove adequately.  These chemical toxins entering the nervous system are what produce anxiety and panic.  In many patients, this phenomenon can be observed anywhere from several minutes to several hours after eating certain fungal foods, such as alcohol or B vitamins.

With effective Candida treatment, anxiety and panic patients usually notice the following:

  1. Some increased anxiety at some point in the first 36 hours of treatment.  Usually this is short and not severe, but in a few cases it could last 2-3 days.
  2. After the first 36 hours, many still feel at times like they’re going to have anxiety, but it doesn’t quite actually come on.  Then after a few days even that feeling goes away completely.
  3. The most common experience, especially when the anxiety is not too serious in the first place, is that people find that the anxiety is gone by the second day and simply never returns.

Anxiety and panic are things of the past once effective Candida treatment is begun.

A note regarding benzodiazepine use for anxiety disorder:
People who have been treating their anxiety or panic (or even insomnia) with benzodiazepines (Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, Restoril and even Ambien) on a regular basis must understand that they are probably addicted to those drugs in addition to having the underlying Candida problem.  In most cases, the best approach is to treat Candida first to take care of the basic cause of anxiety, and then to receive treatment for the benzodiazepine addiction.  If the addiction has affected the person's nervous system so much that he or she would not be able to follow a structured supplement and diet program, then it's best to pursue benzodiazepine addiction treatment first and Candida treatment second as the mind clears. Benzodiazepine addiction is perhaps the hardest drug addiction to treat of all – more difficult than heroin, cocaine, alcohol or methadone.  However, there is a system that works.  Neurotransmitter Restoration (the NTR System™) is the only method known to be completely effective in repairing the nervous system damage done by benzodiazepines. This treatment method is available at various clinics around the United States, including the Center for Health and Wellbeing in San Diego, California,
