As a preface, my mother is celiac (gluten allergy) and tends to believe that going gluten free is a cure all for almost everything. She has suggested that there is a link between food allergies and brain function. I.e. if your body isnt getting the proper nutrients because a gluten allergy is blocking the stomach and intestines ability to absorb them, then the brain cant function properly and the neurons could be misfiring. This misfiring in the brain is a common thing found on many the medical pages I have read regarding the cause of behavioral problems. I have also read through a few dozen pages of the HL/NT portion of this forum and I see gluten free mentioned many times. My question is, how many have tried a change in diet, such as a transition to gluten free, and seen a change in their child? A documentary I was watching the other day about the manufacture of wheat had a portion about gluten, and how it has been changed by the hybrids and genetic modifications that had been done to the majority of the mass produced crops, and they even suggested that this "hyped up" gluten could be the cause for the the uprising of its own allergy. I am a logical person, and it makes sense that our bodies are made to process things a certain way, and if the things get modified our bodies COULD react by rejecting the modified foods, and the rejection of those foods COULD cause to body to be rejecting others things at the same time. Our bodies are finely tuned machines, and a lack of these blocked nutrients could certainly inhibit the bodies ability to function properly. We use many foods to fake out our minds and bodies, i.e. we use caffeine and sugar to fake our bodies into thinking it doesnt need rest. We add MSG to our food to tell our brains that the food we are eating tastes good. (have you ever wondered what ramen would actually taste like without it? If your a bad cook, just add Mrs. Dash, its 100% MSG, Guaranteed to make your brain think your food is tasty, and put holes in your brain at the same time...) I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas and experiences.
