Brain Allergies explores links between environmental substances (foods and chemicals), infections, and nutritional deficiencies and inflammation of the brain and behavioral dysfunction. This fully updated second edition includes information on the healing powers of vitamin C, amino-acid therapies for degenerative diseases, nutrition and autism, and how “supernutrition” may prevent brain disease.
Orthomolecular physicians like Philpott have been curing mental illness by recognizing that brain malfunctions are caused by medical problems such as thyroid, kidney, and sleep disorder problems, an immune disorder cerebral allergy, metal toxicity, Candida infestation and enzyme and nutritional imbalances such as essential fatty acids deficiency (malnourishment).
Biochemical testing can assist in determining underlying causes. Even Harvard’s Dr. Stoll, who receives compensation from about ten different drug companies, recommends fish oil to provide essential Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins as an effective treatment for depression.
Entire food families can cause allergic reactions in susceptible people. Repeated headaches, or schizophrenic, violent, or aggressive reactions, can be an indicator. Foods such as corn, wheat, rice, dairy products, and chocolate, and certain food additives, are the most common offenders but chemicals such as petrochemicals or other substances, like mold can also cause serious problems.
Other manifestations of food allergies are; acne, arthritis, asthma, chest and shoulder pains, colitis, depression, fatigue, food cravings, headaches, hemorrhoids, insomnia, intestinal problems, muscle disorders, obesity, sinus problems, ulcers, and unexplained dramatic weight changes. The list goes on and on. Allergies can also affect children diagnosed as Autistic or exhibiting ADHD.
