No more millet bread for me!
Absolutely and my experience was exactly the same. I had anxiety and insomnia and nightwaking coinciding with when digestive problems were the worst (and when I had thrush while bf'ing so I know positively it was all connected).
The explanations for this may be several:
-Neurotoxins excreted by bad bacteria/yeast.
-Nutritional deficiencies caused by inability to absorb or break down specific nutrients (b vits, magnesium, amino acids for ex. )
-Interference by both of the above with production of neurotransmitters in the gut that the brain runs off of. The gut manufacturers all of them for the brain.
