    Autoimmune diseases of the brain & neurological symptoms associated with celiac disease, NY Times review article 10/12/14:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/12/opinion/sunday/can-celiac-disease-affect-the-brain.html

    Center of research on "neurological autoimmunity" at the Mayo Clinic & neurologist Sean Pittock mentioned:

    http://www.mayoclinic.org/biographies/pittock-sean-j-m-d/bio-20054032

    He's connected to Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons, Ireland. Anyone know if he's familiar with ME/CFS?

    "The Mayo Clinic is on track to run 140,000 tests this year for autoimmune disorders of the brain, about a 20 percent increase over last year."

    Great info. Thanks. It frustrates me that the info on gluten sensitivity / non celiac has been on the web since at least 2005 and they're not sure if it's real. 2014 - 2005 = 9 right ? Lol.

    It was great to see that so many people trying it tho. I hope people know to give it at least 1 year and avoid gluten cc.

    I think its pretty well known knowledge that celiac disease can affect the brain. Some people get poor blood flow to the brain and other crazy neurological issues if they accidentally eat some gluten.
