Wheat/Gluten free and ADHD, Bi-Polar…

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. 🙂

I hope I haven’t overwhelmed anyone. There’s seems to be a lot of good information here.
