Gluten and anxiety
rohvannyn posted:
Having been on a totally grain free diet before, and backsliding a bit lately because of health and financial problems, I've noticed something interesting. There seems to be a correlation between when I eat wheat gluten and when I have severe emotional problems. I'll think I'm doing fine, but I'll have increased anxiety, higher stress level, and I'll also apparently have cognitive problems. Part of that is native to me, but some of it is much worse. Has anyone else had similar issues regarding wheat gluten?
