Yeah. Lactose breaks me out, casein gives me other weird symptoms although no breakouts, gluten grains give me breakouts incredibly easily and other grains aren't quite as bad, but if I eat enough of them they'll break me out too.
What other symptoms do you get? Also, when you break out, is it only on the face, or is on your back/chest/scalp as well?
I get digestion problems from casein (and gluten) and they also affect me mentally in weird ways, making me lethargic/slow and then later nervous/anxious/hyper. I break out on my back, face and sometimes scalp. Rarely ever on my chest.
Healthoid, do you know why some digestive problems cause the mental issues as i seem to get these myself, any good links on this kind of info, ill have to browse ole google
Yeah, in some people casein and gluten and possibly other grains cause weird changes in your serotonin and dopamine levels. These effects can be as strong as any prescription or many illegal drugs. This is why some people are physically addicted to grains and dairy. You actually get real withdrawal symptoms.
The theory is that these mental changes are caused by gluten and casein molecules leaking into your bloodstream through a leaky gut.
I had this link on my website a while ago, I thought it was really interesting: http://homepage.mac....eatopiates.html
There are strong links to depression, anxiety, autism-spectrum disorders and schizophrenia with gluten.
