Sciencedaily.com (1) ran this headline on August 11, 2021: It caught my attention because I knew that a few years ago, Ketamine, an anesthetic drug this is actually a “cyclohexane derivative,” was found to have antifungal properties. (2).
Twenty years ago, it was discovered that drugs that treat depression, called “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors”, or SSRI’s, also had potent antifungal properties (Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. 2001 Dec;48(6):775-9 ) and I have suggested ever since that every depressed patient should talk to their doctors about using an antifungal diet and safe antifungal supplements like resveratrol and caprylic acid rather than SSRI’s, if their doctors and symptoms allowed.
The 20-year-old SSRI paper concluded by stating, “It is probable that antifungal activity results from an interaction of SSRIs and fungal transporter systems.” Of course, my conclusion, further confirmed by this Ketamine/Depression study, is much different. I believe that any symptom or disease that responds favorably to antifungal drugs or supplements…is caused by fungus! How very illogical, they will say! What say you?
