Ever heard the saying “You are what you eat”? Well, it’s true. There’s a ton of data linking gluten sensitivity to mood disorders including anxiety, depression, OCD, and schizophrenia. (Just remember that the sugar-filled gluten-free substitutes aren’t good for you, either!) If you’re struggling to get a handle on anxiety, the best diet is a whole food, gluten-free, processed carb-free, sugar-free eating plan.
It’s also important to address the medically based underlying causes of anxiety. I highly recommend you see a functional medicine provider for this part. If you have unexplained anxiety, it could be adrenal fatigue, Lyme disease, gut dysbiosis, a severe nutrient deficiency, celiac disease (or non-celiac gluten sensitivity), PTSD, or even something else. Each issue has its own evaluation and treatment, but they are most certainly treatable. Don’t give up, and don’t let anyone tell you there’s no reason for your anxiety; there almost always is!
