What Causes Anxiety and Depression? The Answer and How to Cleanse and Detox.
Three things cause the start of your symptoms:
1. Protein/enzyme deficiency;
2. too many pathogens;
However, the root cause of these three problems is: MINERAL DEFICIENCY! Minerals kill pathogens, detox heavy metals, and reduce inflammation.
In the old, old days, people had to eat sea vegetables to make it through the winter. A half of a teaspoon of sea kelp can have 100 to 500 times more minerals than 5 helpings of land vegetables.
We also ate food that was fermented or at least not pasteurized or irradiated so that it had good bacteria and enzymes in it. Your beneficial bacteria produce nutritional acids, including your B vitamins, and kill pathogens.
If something in your life kills your beneficial bacteria and lowers their numbers, either from irritation and inflammation to the intestines, or directly from antibiotics, your intestines will become overrun with pathogens. This can take anywhere from one day for infants to two months for adults, depending on the level of irritation.
Some common problems that result in irritation include:
- bad reaction to a shot;
- excessive hormones during a hormone change;
- excessive hormones during stress;
- anti-inflammatory medicines;
- steroid medicines;
- broad spectrum antibiotics;
- excessive exercise; etc. (suggested reading)
The photo above is what the intestinal lining looks like when there is too much candida yeast. Yeast thrives on sugar, but especially on high fructose corn syrup and alcohol. Modern hybrid breads which hit the market in the late 1980s are also very starchy and yummy for yeast.
Once you have this overgrowth, it WILL NOT correct itself after the irritant has left your life. Post traumatic stress syndrome, which affects many military troops, is an example of what can happen when you get yeast overgrowth caused by stress which can remain intact for the rest of your life if it isn't properly treated.
LEAKY GUT SYNDROME
Yeast will poke holes in your intestinal lining causing foreign bodies to leak from the intestines. This is called auto-immune disorder. Leaky gut syndrome causes over 5,000 symptoms and serious diseases.
The lack of beneficial bacteria causes your proteins and enzymes (a type of protein that breaks down and repairs all of your tissues) to be deficient. Without the enzymes keeping your intestinal lining in good repair, you develop a leaky gut.
The factors that determine which organ will be targeted include: injury, age, sex, vitamin or mineral deficiency or toxicity, heavy metal toxicity, genetic weaknesses, chromosome abnormalities, etc.
Lack of iodine in the thyroid gland makes the thyroid a weak organ and a target for the leakage for 30 percent of the population.
Anxiety and depression are symptoms of low thyroid. I believe anxiety turns into schizophrenia and depression becomes bi-polar when your hormones get really low.
All proteins and enzymes have to bind with a hormone, and they have to be zapped with electricity from contact with a meridian. These processes depend on minerals.
There are at least 300 low thyroid symptoms. Anything neurological problem involves low thyroid hormones or heavy metal toxicity which overstimulates proteins and enzymes. Alzheimer's disease, for instance, is caused when enzymes over-clean and destroy brain tissue instead of repairing.
Healing - Cleansing and Detoxing
After you have removed the element that is causing irritation to your intestines, you can start correcting the intestinal flora. This means kill the yeast and restore beneficial bacterial.
While you are cleansing, you can take pharmaceutical medicines for relief of your symptoms, or natural supplements such as Gaba, Theanine, Suntheanine, Theanine Serine combination, etc. I've put several of these products in a shopping cart at my favorite vitamin website. These amino acids build into dopamine and serotonin. To prevent too much serotonin, Gaba is the solution.
There are many Candida cleansing herbs or packages available, but one of the best ways to kill pathogens is with MSM organic sulfur. (See my other blog.)
While killing pathogens with MSM or yeast killing herbs (see instructions on product), you also need to restore the beneficial bacteria levels by taking a probiotic. It should take about six weeks before you see results, at least in the lesser symptoms.
The major symptoms caused by the leaky gut will take another three months or longer before they disappear. During this phase of your healing, the enzymes are repairing the gut lining. To get your intestinal enzymes up, take L-Glutamine amino acid as per instructions on the label.
Suggested video about MSM Sulfur:
The biggest mineral deficiency we have since 1954 is MSM organic sulfur from rainwater. Sulfur binds with synthetic molecules, heavy metals and pathogens and detoxes them from our bodies. (The same as iodine.) Sulfur is in every tissue in your body. We should have about 25% sulfur, but since the mandatory use of synthetic fertilizers, we have about 1%.
MSM sulfur will probably improve your mood within a week by getting your D3 hormones up, therefore your protein/enzymes go up. Take vitamin C to make it stronger.
Iodine fulfillment therapy is the treatment that doctors used to use for low thyroid for decades before synthetic hormones were created. Now, because of insurance, doctors are only allowed to use synthetic hormones and don't receive any education about iodine therapy.
The treatment was 50mg daily for three months, then 1mg daily for maintenance. The Eidon brand in my shopping cart has information on their website about therapeutic dosing which is 10-20 drops daily until you get results. This will also detox heavy metals.
I got a boost in my mood and brain activity after about one week on 2T MSM powder twice daily, and then again with iodine in high doses. I wish I had figured this out when I was a youngster.
Sea kelp is a great way to get your daily minerals. Most people are low in vitamin C and have under-the-radar scurvy symptoms. Omega 3 oils can be found in fish oil, coconut oil, and Spirulina or other greens (which is where the fish got theirs).
Suggested video about iodine:
Other alternative health care therapies can help your symptoms, but the basic yeast cleanse, leaky gut healing and iodine and MSM is where to start. This information is not to be mistaken for medical advice.

Today's generation doesn't even know that 40 years ago autism, hyperactivity, bi-polar, depression and obesity weren't common. What heppened? It may surprise you to know that most doctors can't answer that question.
AIDS was first documented in Africa in the early 1900s. It migrated to other countries in the late 1900s. During those years, two minerals were removed from our food system, MSM and Iodine.
