I read somewhere that it used to be said that you should eat what ails you. So if you have a bad heart, eat heart. If you have a bad kidney, eat kidney, etc.
Has anyone else followed this? I am considering trying to get some (nonhuman) brain to try to hack my mental health problems.
Speaking of brain, what animals are farmers allowed to sell brain from in the USA? Is cow brain off limits? What about lamb or pig?
I know it holds true for broth/stock. Making bone broth with joint and knuckle bones is good for your own joints.
Schizophrenia, gluten, and low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diets: a case report and review of the literature: http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/6/1/10
I second low carb, ketogenic + coconut oil. Plus make sure you have eliminated every speck of gluten. I was reading about the gluten/schizophrenia connection this morning, and if I were trying to eliminate schizophrenia, I wouldn't get anywhere near the stuff. Not even in small amounts. Not even a slip.
Are you vitamin D sufficient? Schizophrenia is associated with vitamin D insufficiency during development. Now, you may think, "it's too late", but vitamin D sufficiency is good for everyone, and besides, we can't say that correcting a sufficiency later in life couldn't reverse or at least attenuate the illness.
People often report a big improvement in their mood and mental function when they correct their vitamin D levels, so it's worth trying.
