From a member: "I would like to thank you for having asked Ron Hoggan to write an article about food allergies and depression for your site at About.com. It saved my son's life and, in the process, mine. He was depressed for several years and nothing helped. After an operation he became much worse. As I was looking after him I began to suspect a link with food and my search on the net brought up your site. The article explained the link between gluten sensitivity and depression and was well documented with a wonderful bibliography. So I put my son (without telling him as he was in such a state) on the paleo diet and less than 24 hours later he told me he had never had such a good sleep in his life! There have been improvements everyday since, in every aspect of his life. Many thanks." Read the article

I believe I was misdiagnosed with colitis and or IBS four years ago. Having a degree in dietetics and nursing I did some research on my own and experimented with my diet, well!! I have omitted all gluten and products containing hidden gluten in them, after using a microscope on food labels I have begun to feel so much better after just 24 hrs. I have come to the conclusion just because someone has a degree in medicine doesn’t make them infallable.

So interesting that the poster mentioned the paleo diet. I find that I feel so much better when I eat paleo too – emotionally, as well as physically. I think for me it’s a blood sugar thing, but who knows? The information about allergies is interesting too.
