Greetings, Helen, and welcome to the Candida Diet Forum.
Can you tell us what your diet is at this time? For example, is any type of sugar still in your diet, or do you eat any simple carbohydrates? Alcohol?
Unfortunately, nervousness and anxiety both seem to be by-products of a Candida infestation. There are several things that can help this until you’re further into being rid of Candida.
One is an herb called Passion Flower – which contains natural nerve tonic properties.
Another is Valerian Root; some people find this fairly strong, so be careful it doesn’t put you to sleep if you’re out and about.
A lot of people become depressed when suffering with Candida. If this happens, try something called 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) and St. John’s Wort. Some call it a myth, but I’ve seen 5HTP used more than once to regulate serotonin levels in brain and thus aid mood and sleep.
Good luck to you, Able
