I started eating strictly paleo a couple of weeks ago and am finding that it is easy for me and I love it, very comfortable with this way of eating. I'm slimming down quite quickly and am not hungry. Overall I have seen a reduction in anxiety...I feel calmer. One of the problems I'd really like to eliminate though is brain fog and depression. I've had it for years. Completely off gluten and any processed foods now and it seems better, so when I had a major attack of fog head an irritability last night I thought it must be food related. Possible culprits are chamomile tea (some teas seem to have irritated me in the past, but not sure) or chicken I ate from a bone broth (skin on). Is this an omega six issue? If so what can I do to best compensate for the years of depression and damage in my body? I was on SSRI's and now am completely off medication. They weren't working anymore anyway. Maybe it's not the chicken, but the low carb? I did eat an apple in the afternoon though... Anyone else have experience with this?
I am on several supplements to help the healing process early on, including fish oil, cod liver oil, magneseum/minerals. Is Sam-e helpful?
Update: ate some chicken again, no big deal. I think it was the tea, which has also made me think more about eating animal products from animals that have eaten allergenic plants. I once had a bad reaction to eating goat cheese from local goats that were probably chowing down on ragweed, juniper n stuff. Anyone have any experience with this?
