Now, after all that holiday eating, you can clean up your body internally. This makes your brain happy as well. A happy brain means happy moods, not to mention better health. Karyn Calabrese, a Chicago native and detox guru, breaks it down in her books on detoxing and healthy – really healthy – eating.

This sixty-six year old (yep, that’s a recent picture) says she hasn’t had a cold in 30 years by eating this way. Can’t sleep, grumpy, achy joints, skin problems, depression, anxiety & blood sugar problems? Make it your New Year’s resolution to order one of Karyn’s books, available through her website, or on Kindle version available.

Not surprisingly, many have found that after changing their diets, eliminating processed food & the chemicals in them and providing their brains with improved vitamin & mineral sources – their depression, anxiety, mania, etc. goes away.  Cheaper than many of those drugs and none of the risks.

Does wheat increase schizophrenic episodes?

Over the last thirty years studies have shown that increased wheat consumption (bread, pasta, cereals) has been associated with increases in schizophrenia and other psychiatric illnesses.

Multiple studies have tracked reductions in schizophrenia in communities where there has been a corresponding reduction in removal of gluten from the diet.

Researchers in recent years have found a biological explanation for this relationship, noting that schizophrenics displayed abnormally igh levels of antibodies to gliadin, in a complex of wheat proteins.
