Nutritionhelp Statistics - Mental Clarity

A problem many clients face is that a number of their health issues are not visible. Stomach or skin problems for example, can be observed by others, therefore being understood and allowed for. However, some symptoms for a client with yeast overgrowth are not readily seen, including symptoms associated with mental clarity. Without the support and understanding of family, colleagues or the medical profession, clients may have feelings of self-doubt and despair.

We need to remember that Candida produces 79 distinct toxins, that might cause a broad range of symptoms, including affecting the ability to think clearly. Dr. Stephan Cooter, Ph.D, writes in Beating Chronic Disease, “Candida is responsible for flooding the system with an accumulation of toxic acetylaldehydes. Acetylaldehydes are known to poison tissues – accumulating in the brain, spinal cord, joints, muscles and tissues.”

It is no wonder then, that with yeast toxins potentially affecting the brain, that some symptoms of yeast overgrowth may be panic attacks, inability to make decisions and to concentrate, mental confusion or ‘woolly head’ and apathy. As I have written previously, as yeast dies, it releases even more toxins, which for a short time may aggravate and accentuate some symptoms. This increase in toxins is known as ‘Herxheimer reaction’ or more simply, ‘die-off’. This can affect mental stability as much as muscular aches and pains, potentially influencing panic attacks or increasing mental dullness. By supporting the liver in its detoxification processes as carefully as possible, such an increase in symptoms might be avoided, minimised and short-lived. All Nutritionhelp supplement recommendations include nutrients to help support liver, but if someone is particularly struggling with die-off symptoms it may be helpful to contact Nutritionhelp. Any supplement being taken to address the yeast needs to be taken in a very controlled manner in order to prevent a build up of ‘die-off’ toxins. Sometimes additional supplements may be helpful to consider, in order to help support the liver in its detoxification processes.

With that said, Nutritionhelp statistics identify that clients do find support for symptoms affecting mental clarity. For information on how the statistics were gathered see the post on Nutritionhelp statistics and PMS here. These results were gathered over just two reviews – a time span of roughly 6 months.

For clients reporting apathy, 88% saw some improvement, with 60% seeing considerable improvement

For clients reporting panic attacks, 85% saw some improvement, with 58% seeing considerable improvement

For clients reporting an inability to concentrate, 82% saw some improvement, with 49% seeing considerable improvement

For clients reporting mental confusion or ‘woolly head’, 88% saw some improvement, with 48% seeing considerable improvement

For clients indicating inability to make decisions, 85% saw some improvement, with 46% seeing considerable improvement.

For clients reporting clumsiness, or lack of co-ordination, 92% saw some improvement, with 48% seeing considerable improvement.

If you feel that yeast may be behind some of your own symptoms you may like to consider a Nutritionhelp report which contains advice on diet and nutritional supplements to support your health, taking into consideration your own nutritional status and health history.
