Celiac disease, triggered by gluten proteins from wheat in susceptible people, can damage the central nervous system. The cell walls of Candida, the yeast responsible for oral thrush, vaginal infections and intestinal Candidiasis, contain the same protein sequence as wheat gluten and may trigger or stimulate Celiac Disease.....
The surface proteins which wheat and candida fungus have in common is hyphal wall protein 1 (HWP1). HWP1 uses oligosaccharide sugars to cross link with the tissue transglutaminase which holds cells together on the surfaces of our small intestines.

However, this study does not reach far enough. Everyone's immune systems start identifying harmful antigens like candida by the protein sequence in HWP1. In celiac patients the immune system creates antibodies which attack anything associated with HWP1. In celiac patients and everyone else the immune system releases zonulin in the presence of HWP1. Zonulin causes the intestine walls to become porous, and passes the intestinal contents into the bloodstream undigested.

Because both candida and wheat gluten contain HWP1, BOTH the celiac reaction AND the permeability reaction are triggered by either candida or wheat gluten.

This website shows that about 90% of candida and gluten symptoms are identical.

Why? Because the above "zonulin dump" places candida, gluten, bacteria, viruses, complex sugars, large proteins and metals into the bloodstream. From the bloodstream candida and gluten continue attaching to tissue, and become the objects of further immune responses.

What can we do? Obviously quit eating gluten. But candida? Candida thrives on anything which tastes sweet. So you know the rest.

Secret agent man did an excellent job answering this post!! Make sure if you treat the yeast(possibly with diflucan or nystatin, you also take a great probiotic supplement to re-establish the good bacteria in the gut!

Hello all, just checking in to let everyone know that I'm still 100% over the neurological problems I had back in 2009~2010 after treating the candida/leaky gut syndrome. I honestly don't get on these forums much now because, well, I'm busy living my life to the fullest. I still like to come back and offer my perspective to others who might be struggling with what I struggled with. If not for some random post on the internet I may have never been aware of the existence of the candida/leaky gut syndrome connection to the immune and nervous systems. Anyway, I hope all are doing well.
