I've been suffering from psychological problems such as irritability, depression, fatigue, weakness and insomnia, since I was started on an inhaled steroid years ago.
I suspect that the steroid med is the culprit of the mental problems.
I stopped taking the steroid two month ago, because my asthma is well managed.
However, even now I have above mentioned psychological problems.
I also crave for sugar and carbonhydrate. I have allergic diseases. I feel bad in humid air. I have mood swings as I said...
All these things, according to a questionaire I answered, show that I have a leaky gut or yeast connection.
I've been on an anti candida diet for over 18 months. Basically it's working well.
Thanks to thid I could reduced and stopped the inhaled steroid.
Now I'm thinking of trying some nutritional supplements.
So far I've tried zinc, vitamin C, B, E etc. All of them help me, but
now I'm interested in glutamine, which I think directly repair the damaged intestinal walls. Also, I've heard that glutamine helps improve brain functions.
Is there anyone who tried glutamine in order to combat leaky gut syndrome?
