I would say just do the diet for a few weeks and it’ll completely help your depression. You may feel worse at first, but it’ll get better fast. You are getting a lot of gas because the candida produces ammonia caused by digesting whatever your diet consists of right now. Once you do the strict diet; all gas will dissappear once you have gone through the die-off stage. Get a good b-vitamin and this will do wonders as well:
Another vitamin to consider is cod liver oil and it helps with seasonal depression due to lack of sunlight exposure.
The candida diet can cure your depression, just give the diet a chance! Acupuncture is another way to help detox and make you feel good immediately; the first time I did it, I felt like a new person!
