Depressed from cream?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 08, 2013 at 1:48 PM

Has anyone that uses cream, like in coffee, found that they get depressed after eating it for a few day? I've been using it for a bout a week and noticed as the days go on I'm getting more and more depressed it seems. So I'm cutting that once I finish what I have left then I'm gonna go to coconut milk, speaking of, dose anyone know how long home made coconut milk will last?

Wheat's one hell of a drug.

I found the truth of this when I discovered, by going primal, that wheat was the source of so many of my symptoms including depression.

I'm a little stressed right not but nothing too major. I've been drinking no more then 1/2 cup at most, and then when I had 3 cups of coffee.

Maybe you have a dairy allergy? There is a growing body of research linking allergies and depression.

A study published in the Journal of Biological Psychiatry evaluated 30 patients suffering from anxiety, depression, confusion or difficulty in concentration. The results found that allergies alone were able to produce the following symptoms: severe depression, nervousness, feeling of anger without a particular object, loss of motivation and severe mental blankness. The foods and chemicals that produced most severe mental reactions were wheat, milk, cane sugar, tobacco smoke and eggs.

No, I haven't noticed lowered spirits after drinking my coffee. I add heavy cream and a little honey and I find it soothing to slowly sip the warm beverage.

If you experiment back and forth with using cream or not, and find you consistently notice depression with cream, I'd definitely stop using it. It's not a core paleo food at all, simply a favored indulgence for those of us who enjoy it.

Many paleos prefer almond or coconut milk anyhow. I don't, but that's my problem.

my spouse had mood drops from casein. He does tolerate ghee, which is butter that has been clarified to remove all the casein. it is a good source of vitamin K2. He didn't drop dairy until he had 3 (count 'em) positive blood tests for casein intolerance. He recently tested goats milk and did not tolerate that, but he does tolerate sheep milk, which I've found in some very nice cheeses.

Nope, have not found that. How much cream have you been drinking? Anything else is happening in your life? :-)
