Anyone watching the Broken Brain? It talks about avoiding dairy, corn, soy, and gluten. And ways to decrease inflammation in your body. It’s all about the gut brain connection.

There sure is a connection angie, a lot of reasons why there so much cancer/dimentia,alzeimers as i have read up on this ,,some studies have found this because of what we eat and drink in this world sorry to say , its all about what it tastes like even though a lot of these things poison us which will have an affect on the body and the brain,one can get away with a lot,years later illness comes in from all, the abuse we do to ourselves and dont realise it , i am guilty of this ,eat anything drink anything, i changed and think about this more now but, i do let my hair down from time to time :)

Thanks for sharing Angie. I have not seen that one, but I will be on the look out for it. I love watching the documentaries about food and it's effect on our bodies. Such a wake up call. A great one that I've watched recently is *What the Health, also *That sugar Film. Both are on Netflix & are very eye opening.
I agree John, it is a lot about tastes..but it is also the chemicals sugar\glucose\fructose that are put in the foods to make our bodies crave more and more of the same foods. Plus the additions of the chemicals put in foods to give it a longer shelf life. Sad reality. We think certain foods are healthy and good for us, when in actuality they are not. Diary and Gluten are both good examples.

Just tried looking it up on Netflix and Hulu. Where did you view it?

Thanks for sharing, Angie, that sounds very informative! Could you point us to where we might find it? Is it a docufilm?

It’s online goggle Broken Brain .com. I guess I can’t share the link.😢

Just started watching. Thanks for letting us know. It’s all of us in this!
21 Jan 04:53
I am watching/listening to it right now as well 😊
21 Jan 06:40
It’s a real eye opener. No wonder so many of us are sick.
21 Jan 08:05
Would like to see this but what channel or app is it on please?
28 Jan 19:25
I've never seen it but I don't think corn is an issue. Many countries live on corn tortilla's. Dairy, soy, gluten just seem ridiculous to consume, but that's me. We aren't meant to consume milk forever. But the dairy farmer's would disagree. LOL.
28 Jan 20:51
Yes!!! Just finished it. It’s an eye opener. Everyone should watch it.

I think its just all money to be made susan, it what sells because of taste,i used to love my milk chocolate snicker bars. my tea with milk and sugar ,my stabilised + additives currys with with gluten with wheat filled nann breads and vegetable oil filled popodums with tomatoes on the side, it wasnt until i came here that i realised i have been poisoning myself for a lifetime :( :)

So I have what is probably a dumb question if anyone can answer. I started my “diet” this past Monday. Cut out all soda and milk. Seems to be a lot less itching. Probably because I am watching my sugar intake. Well I made a smoothie this morning with strawberries, blueberries, bananas and stuff. And I am itching like crazy now. I thought “natural” sugar from fruit was ok? Or I have to elimate all sugar, natural and processed?
28 Jan 22:19
hello peg, too much natural sugar can set it off aswell i am sorry to say,it does apply to both, try cutting down on the fruit ,see how you go, i eat blueberries, and bananas but try not to go too much if i can,
28 Jan 22:22
Ok thank you. Was going nuts trying to figure out why I was itching so much. Going to miss my strawberries 😟. Then I was thinking maybe there is too much sugar in fruit too. Oh boy, this is a learning experience.
28 Jan 23:07
Peg sugar is sugar. Honey is sugar. I only have 1/2 a pear or a banana, or maybe 4 strawberries, or maybe 20 blueberries in my shake. I do not have much fruit at all in my diet. I don't think it matters what kind of fruit you have. Just not alot. If you love fruit have it, but only a bit. Sugar for autoimmune dis-eases is like poison. If you eat processed foods keep an eye on the label. If sugar is one of the first ingredients don't have it. Remember that bread/pasta/potatoes all turn to sugar in our bodies. Alcohol is sugar. It's a learning curve but I have been doing this for about 2 decades. Long time but still clear and free of pharmaceutical or specialists. You'll figure it out.

John food is big money. Advertising works. I know I go to the store for groceries on welfare day. The money that is spent on cases of canned soup, kraft dinner, weiners, buns, ketchup... The list is long. Always my bill is way less. I just don't buy processed unless I have to which is rare. Lettuce is costly right now here but that is still less than other stuff. Heck a head of lettuce, chicken, olive oil, frozen fruit and I'm set for the week. That's seriously about $30.00 for the week. There's a few other things I like, like avocado's but I don't spend more than $50.00 a week on food. Unless I run out of my protein powder then it's more but on average my bill is pretty low. If I really want to go all out then I buy tons of different vegetables and create a different salad. BTW.... Who doesn't like restaurant burgers, french fries, milk shakes and all that stuff? I still do but just don't have it. On occassion I will have a taste or a bite but no more. I like my weight, energy, and health.
