Candida leads to brain fog, fuzzy thinking, feeling 'blue', mood swings
Candida yeast ferments dietary sugars into liver-toxic acetaldehyde in the process of turning sugar into energy. Candida also appears to increase gut and urinary levels of ammonia, another liver toxin.
Candida leads to brain fog because having systemic candidiasis means you're constantly drinking alcohol, as yeasts convert sugars into alcohol.

What are the symptoms of Candida Overgrowth?
* Recurring headaches/ migraines.
* Rashes, itching skin.
* Thush - oral/vaginal.
* Abdominal bloating. Intestinal bloating can also be caused by 'swallowing air' and the simple cure is 'catch yourself doing it and stop it'.
* Recurrent indigestion.
* Dry mouth or throat, constantly having to clear throat when speaking.
* Joint pain.
* Brain fog, fuzzy thinking.
* Feeling 'blue', mood swings.
* Hangover symptoms after bread/cakes.

Traversal of Candida albicans across Human Blood-Brain Barrier In Vitro
This is the first demonstration that C. albicans is able to adhere, invade, and transcytose across human BMEC without affecting monolayer integrity. A complete understanding of the interaction(s) of C. albicans with human BMEC should contribute to the understanding of the pathogenic mechanism(s) ofC. albicans meningitis.

Re: Candida leads to brain fog, fuzzy thinking, feeling 'blue', mood swings
A diet rich in sugar and other simple carbohydrates promotes yeast overgrowth.
The "yeast connection" is a term to indicate the relationship of superficial yeast infections in your digestive tract (or vagina) to fatigue, headache, depression, PMS, irritability, and other symptoms that can make you feel "sick all over."
In my experience and that of many other practicing physicians, Candida albicans ranks high on the list…especially in women between the ages of 25 and 45.

If you suffer from depression and/or any other disabling disorder and have a history of…
Repeated or prolonged courses of antibiotic drugs
Persistent digestive symptoms
And/or recurrent vaginal yeast infections, prostrate infections, jock itch or nail fungus…
…a comprehensive treatment program that features oral antifungal medications and a special diet may provide you with sometimes dramatic relief from recurring depressions.

Cerebral candidiasis: case report of brain abscess secondary to Candida albicans, and review of literature

A patient with a brain abscess due to Candida albicans is reported. This patient had three episodes of systemic candidiasis in spite of the fact that she had no underlying debilitating disease and had never received prior antibiotic or adrenocortical steroid therapy. A review of the literature reveals 42 cases of central nervous system Candida albicans infection.

Re: Candida leads to brain fog, fuzzy thinking, feeling 'blue', mood swings
I finally have been screened, tested and diagnosed with candida, (as well as Lyme, but not sure which came first).

Everything you listed here is exactly what I experience every single day, regardless of my intention, attitude, effort and all else. Some folks are just way too susceptible to it, and some have really great immune systems to fight this fungal crud.

If any of you "thinks" you have it, please take the time and effort to get a REAL test done from a real natural-path holistic friendly MD. There are some serious drugs that can be given to help knock it all back, and then some serious diet and food restrictions to be followed to help keep this at bay. But please do it. Don't go half assed and try something for a few weeks and bail.

Get tested. Get diagnosed. Get REAL treatment, and change your diet to help it all out for a a good long while. In a few months you will feel better, and you won't believe how much of "some other human" you had been!

The hidden epidemic: Candida overgrowth

Headaches. Recurring heartburn. Lethargy and fatigue. Prostatitis. Night sweats. Diarrhea. Fibromyalgia. Sinusitis. PMS. Anxiety. “Brain fog." Memory loss and mood swings. These are just a few of the symptoms that manifest a condition known as candidemia (Candida in the blood). Some researchers believe that Candida albicans is the leading causative pathogen behind a host of medical conditions plaguing Americans today.

Saccharomyces boulardii - The Probiotic Yeast Superstar

One of the biggest advantages to using Saccharomyces boulardii, especially when taking antibiotics, is that it is not affected by antibiotics since it is a yeast. Therefore, it can help to keep pathogenic (disease-causing) microbes and yeasts such as Candida from overwhelming your body when the antibiotics kill most of the good bacteria and most, but not all, of the bad bacteria in your GI tract.

Re: Candida leads to brain fog, fuzzy thinking, feeling 'blue', mood swings
Saccharomyces boulardii is an internationally acclaimed probiotic in the treatment of diarrhoea, IBS, IBD and Candida overgrowth. Although S. boulardii is a yeast itself, studies have shown it to reduce the levels of C. albicans in the body , by up to 90%. It does this through various methods. Firstly, being a friendly yeast it has the ability to seek out the same binding sites on the intestinal wall lining as C. albicans and effectively “crowd” it out, more effectively and directly than probiotic bacteria can. Secondly, S. boulardii produces and excretes capric, caprylic and caproic acids as well as other beneficial compounds. These compounds have been shown to actually kill C. albicans cells, as well as inhibit its ability to adhere to the intestinal lining and prevent biofilm formation. , , Thirdly, further studies have also shown that S. boulardii may decrease C. albicans in the liver, spleen and kidneys in systemic conditions as well as reduce inflammation.

Re: Candida leads to brain fog, fuzzy thinking, feeling 'blue', mood swings
The expansion of Candida is fostered by eating fermented or aged products and certain sugars, particularly maltose (malt, barley malt, malted barley or maltodextrin).

Candida invasion of organs begins, with the liver being one of the most affected organs. This is due to the fact that the liver receives a large blood supply directly from the intestines, where Candida overgrowth usually gets its start.

As Candida takes up residence in the liver, it chemically influences the appetite, and one usually begins to prefer or even crave those foods that feed Candida — fermented or aged items and certain sugars. The most common form is the craving for foods in the group of chocolate, bread, alcohol (beer, wine or vodka most commonly), aged cheeses (cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan, etc.) or milk itself, nuts or peanuts, and fruit like apples, grapes or bananas. Less common — but seen in the more seriously affected — is the phenomenon of craving vinegar (includes ketchup and salad dressings) and pickles. In children ages 3-8, the very typical cravings are for milk, cheese, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, or peanut butter.

Candida is not understood by many doctors and patients to be a common cause of real disease.

In fact, it is quite typical for patients to not develop serious symptoms until ten, twenty or thirty years after their yeast-promoting exposures.

As an example, in clinical experience a typical patient might develop frequent headaches, depression, fatigue, sleep problems and poor memory around age 35, while the actual main culprits are frequent courses of antibiotics the patient received for ear infections as a young child, chlorine exposure from swimming at the YMCA as an older child, and later being on the high school swim team. Both antibiotics and chlorine kill off normal bacterial flora, gradually allowing Candida to multiply and become established beyond its normal, limited environment.

Capric Acid Secreted by S. boulardii Inhibits C. albicans Filamentous Growth, Adhesion and Biofilm Formation
Our study demonstrated that this probiotic yeast secretes into the medium active compounds reducing candidal virulence factors. The chief compound inhibiting filamentous C. albicans growth comparably to S. boulardii extract was capric acid, which is thus responsible for inhibition of hyphae formation. It also reduced candidal adhesion and biofilm formation, though three times less than the extract, which thus contains other factors suppressing C. albicans adherence.
[link to www.plosone.org]

Decanoic acid, or capric acid, is a saturated fatty acid. The term capric acid arises from the Latin "capric" which pertains to goats due to their olfactory similarities.[9]
Capric acid occurs naturally in coconut oil (about 10%) and palm kernel oil (about 4%).
Two other acids are named after goats: caproic (a C6 fatty acid) and caprylic (a C8 fatty acid). Along with decanoic acid, these total 15% in goat milk fat.
