Wheat/Gluten free and ADHD, Bi-Polar…

wheat pic

I believe there is evidence relating to gluten and reducing psychological symptoms. Even Dr. Davis in Wheat Belly talked about schizophrenics getting better when taken off of gluten…

When my ADHD son was diagnosed, no one talked about changing his diet. I’d hear mothers talking about staying away from red dyes like in Kool Aid. I have no personal experience with psychological disorders and eating wheat-free.

My goal is to post articles I’ve found that link gluten and the mind. In my own case, I know that I am thinking more clearly and my depression seems to be in check without meds and my anxiety seems to have gone to almost nothing.

I would love to have people comment and give their experiences regarding gluten-free eating and the mind. 🙂

    Definitely consider that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the web
    the simplest thing to bear in mind of. I say to you,
    I certainly get irked while other folks think about issues that they just do not
    recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can
    be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken
    and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

    I read in a Gluten Free magazine last night that going gluten-free helped a little 2-yr-old boy go from mildly autistic to NORMAL. He hadn’t been gaining weight and was lagging behind mentally. He is now a normal 6-yr-old and no longer in special ed classes!

      It sure does. Reading “Wheat Belly” opened my eyes. My husband’s glucose #’s are WAY down from what they used to be. It’s amazing. I wish I could convince my son and his family to go wheat free.
