Antibiotic and low sugar DIET TREATMENT for depression
OBJECTIVE: any person affected by a systemic yeast infection, often misdiagnosed, will undoubtedly have a variety of symptoms that are like to symptom of depression.
Depression is indicative of chronic inflammatory state. Sugar can suppress immune system and impair the defences against infectious diseases: this state of chronic inflammation causes fatigue, lack of motivation and both physical and mental weakness, low self-esteem and depression. If the inflammatory diseases have an infectious cause such as nonbacterial and other bacterial forms and sugar or to eat sweet could increases bacteria reproduction, antibiotic and low carbohydrate diet can be the best therapy for depressions. The use of low dose antibiotics, attacks the disease process at its source, namely the infectious agent. In contrast to the treatment of ordinary, acute bacterial infections with faster growing bacteria, the bacterial forms which trigger the chronic infectious disease processes are much slower growing organisms; thus, the antibiotic protocols prescribed for treating the depressive chronic diseases are based on the use of long-term, low-dose antibiotics.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: in a double-blind placebo-controlled trial carried out from 2004 to 2010, 300 patients with established depression symptoms were assigned treatment with long-term low-dose antibiotics associated with low carbohydrate diet and 300 patients received placebo.
RESULTS: 230 of the 300 antibiotic-treated patients had complete resolution of depressive symptoms soon after the initial therapy and have remained well during a mean follow-up period of 12 months. In contrast, all 300 patients given placebo continued to have depression symptoms. 70 patients treated with intravenous penicillin G, 1,200 million weekly for 6 months had complete resolution of depressive symptoms and have remained well since.
CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that established depression disease can often be treated successfully with antibiotic therapy or parenteral penicillin and low carbohydrate-diet, however, neither of the regimens that we tested is uniformly effective, and further experience will be needed to determine the optimal course of therapy.
