I have a lot of sensitivities to foods. Fruit, fruit juice, sugar, bread, potatoes, and rice all send me through the roof as far as a stoned, fat head, headache type of feeling. The only foods I can eat without either an immediate or next day reaction are meat and vegetables. Even then, one day out of seven, ground beef and steamed cabbage will give me a splitting headache and I will be spaced out all day.
Before taking any psychotropic drugs, I tried anything on the market that you could name. Fish oil is about the only item I have not tried. I did try flax oil for omega-3, but that depends on your body being able to convert it, so it may not have proved anything.
