Here's something I've noticed (and I think it's related to being gluten-free, but I'm not 100%)--I have almost ZERO PMS now. It used to be that I would get very moody and fatigued, but my last two cycles have been...well, miraculous. And EASY.

Weird, but very cool.

I am definitely a more patient person when I am gluten free. No more wild mood swings. (Menopause probably contributes to that too.)

Heal the gut, heal the brain. Gluten can be like alcohol with its opioid effects.

Here's a search for 'gluten gut brain' : www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHMR_en

If you wanted to look at research studies, search around www.pubmed.gov

The UK's Dr. Hadjivassiliou is a notable researcher in this area, so you may be interested in his work (some referenced in the first search above); he's often cited by other doctors and studies.

There are many more symptoms than only digestive. Check out the link after my signature in Recognizing Celiac Disease. Depression is a well known symptom.

After introducing myself to the team and thinking about all the benefits I've experienced by eating gluten-free, another thing came to mind. Before eating gluten-free, I tended to be fairly depressed and anxious. These days, although I am still a worrier, I definitely am not depressed and do not have the same level of anxiety. Do you suppose this has to do with living gluten free?
