The link between delayed food allergies and depression

Symptoms caused by delayed food allergies may take days to develop, therefore the patients themselves and even medical practitioners cannot make the link between food and disease. This is very unfortunate, because delayed food allergies, as an inflammatory trigger, can often play a major role in behavior disorders and depression. Undetected, the triggering foods are routinely eaten and could prevent therapeutic measures from being effective.

Symptoms and diseases associated with delayed food allergies include:

ADHD, anxiety, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, dizziness (associated with anxiety), hyperactivity, lethargy, PMS, stress/tension, weight gain and/or weight loss (affecting self-esteem).

How exactly do delayed food allergies and inflammation contribute to behavior disorders and depression?

Studies have shown that there is a connection between stress, inflammation and disease. The key hormone for happiness is serotonin. During chronic stress and inflammation, serotonin is not accurately produced and with time becomes deficient, leading to depression and/or sleep disorders.

Gluten and dairy are ubiquitous and are part of most people’s daily nutrition. A number of milk protein fragments have been shown to behave like opioids. Opioid fragments present in cow’s milk and in gluten may exhibit a direct action in the brain associated with chronic inflammation, which may then lead to ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disease and/or autism.

Other reactive trigger foods that are also regularly consumed include tree nuts, peanuts, chicken egg, soybeans, and yeast. For most of us, these foods are safe to eat, but if you experience any behavior disorders or depression, these or other foods you consume on a regular basis might aggravate or enhance your symptoms or may even be responsible.

How can I identify the foods that are causing inflammation in my body?

IgG is a defense protein generated by our immune system. Its task is to bind to a foreign substance called antigen. This antigen is recognized as an invader having the potential to harm the body. The body recognizes the “invader” and induces an inflammatory cascade response designed to destroy the antigen.
