Just to add, I went thru the Brain Allergies thing to, being an early-on sufferer of what was then called Environmental Illness. That meant I cleaned up my diet and house and environment to total organic purity, for years. . .alot of that I still do, tho not to those extremes. . .but did it help? Not one teeny. The first breakthru was in '85 when a pdoc herself ill began fiddling with Li and TCAs with a few of us. From all my reading and experience, it just made sense to balance the brain chemistry judiciously with meds. . tho I had to wait for a lot of them to be invented. Got on Wellbutrin in '89 and "woke up". . .and have been pursuing meds ever since. With some supplements as *key* foundation, but nothing "natural" has ever, so far, touched my brain/mood.
Wishing you good luck. . .maybe the field has changed?
I did go to one OM shrink, who put me on I think 1000gr Niacin, and when I developed an ulcer, said, You'd better see a doctor!
