i heard someone say on youtube that if you ate alot of cottage cheese, the casein in it wouldnt break down in your system as an normal protein would and it would affect your neurotransmitters in a way that a drug would. did anyone heard about this? whats your take on it?
Chocolate affects you "like a drug". Caffeine affects you "like a drug". I would look waaaaay further than someone mentioning something on youtube to hold that as absolute truth, just from an information perspective. Dairy is a very pleasurable food item, and if you can tolerate it and it doesn't stimulate binges- go for it. If you want to see if it makes a big difference, eliminate for 30 days and see how you feel when you reintroduce it.
"Casomorphin are peptides, i.e., protein fragments, derived from the digestion of milk protein casein. The distinguishing characteristic of casomorphins is that they have an opioid effect." Gluten exorphins and gliadorphins are the opiod peptides in gluten that may hit your system if your digestion doesn't break them down properly.
These bits of info are the basis of the hypothesis that gluten-free casein-free diet can help some people with autism but there's no good scientific support for it. My son was just about to be evaluated for autism spectrum and/or ADHD when I got him tested for celiac. He has celiac disease as do I and his symptoms have improved on a glutenfree diet. Based only on our experience, I of course feel children should be checked out medically thoroughly before being labelled with a psychiatric diagnosis.
