A reasonable model of brain dysfunction would explain
mental and behavioral symptoms as expressions of disturbed
body processes. Not a single twitch, itch, pain, or moment
of anxiety would be explained away as "psychological". The
term "psychological" is meaningless in any case and should
be dropped from the vocabulary of all serious students of
the human experience.
Shifts in mood, changes in concentration, memory, motor control, and
sensation can be interpreted at the level of altered brain function. The
problems of adverse brain effects of nutrient deficiencies, the toxic
effect of molecules derived from food, and the immunogenic potential of food
proteins and peptides are seldom recognized.
We believe that eating too much of the wrong food causes mental
illness. There are many different mechanisms. Some mechanisms of food-caused
disease tend to be ignored in medical practice. For example, Allergy to proteins
from cow’s milk, hen’s eggs and wheat are three common problems. One idea is
that antibodies generated by food proteins or peptides can attack the brain.
This immune mistake is generally known as molecular mimicry. A second idea is
that food proteins or peptides generated from them during digestion can act
directly on the brain
A third idea is that your brain is affected by immune responses in other
parts of your body. All immune activity sends signals to the brain to change
behavior and to recruit a range of defensive responses. Disturbances to
brain function vary from routine effects such as sleepiness, fogginess, and
brief episodes of confusion to symptoms of major mental or neurological illness.
Depression Solution Many of the symptoms included under the title of
“depression” are typical of common food-related diseases including diabetes,
atherosclerosis, malnutrition, hormonal dysfunction and delayed pattern food
allergy. All these problems require diet revision.
We suggest that a prudent person suffering depression and body symptoms would
be wise to pursue vigorous, thorough diet revision at the earliest opportunity.
Because some brain dysfunction compromises judgmentlearning and motivation,
family members, friends and professional advisors often have to provide the
right direction and support.
