Milk Lifting My Mood And Giving Energy...why?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

this may sound strange but I've recently made the discovery that milk enhances my mood and provides me with energy almost instantly after I've drank it.

This has been happening now for a short while now. When I was accidentally got glutened last week the milk didn't really take any effect, but now that it's been a few days, whatever is in the milk is giving me that lift again. This led me to believe that it could have been a B12 deficiency that I may have been suffering from so I bought some sublingual pills. They arrived today. I did some research and learnt that the methylcobalamin is the best form to take so I got those. I took a pill today and felt nothing. I did read that it could take months to see any chance but this doesn't explain what happened below.

I just drank milk again and got that energy boost, mood lift and a general feeling of good well being.

This may not be the right forum but I am writing this here, anyway, since celiac sufferers may have knowledge of vitamins, etc.

Does anyone know what vitamin could be responsible?

My BIL runs marathons. The recommended drink after exercise is chocolate milk. I know even non-fat milk &/ or chocolate have a good effect on my oldest boy. He plans to stock his dorm fridge with choco milk & Mt dew. If you can digest it, it sounds like a pretty safe upper. :)

That's great Sky! I'm going to tell him he doesn't need drugs. choco milk is his drug.

Edited: just talked to my 18 year old. He said "That sounds about right." in regards to Speedy's mood lift & energy boost. So there are 2 of you.

It could be the casein protein also. The American military once experimented with using casein as a fatigue fighter for soldiers. I have reactions to dairy products myself. I once stayed awake for 3 days straight after eating cheese and wasn't even tired. Started sleeping a after that 4 hours and then 6 hours the next day etc. Now that I have been off gluten longer and have a more healed gut, I don't react to it like that. But I still don't eat it for other reasons.

Well, I did lots of research about all this in the past few days and narrowed it down to either a possible B3 or B1 deficiency. Firstly, I tried B3 foods, such as chicken and felt no change.

Today, I tried B1 and felt the same effect that I got from milk ie more energy, much less anxiety (I experienced this a lot!) my mood is much more happy and I feel motivated to do many more things.

I read that Celiac can cause deficiency of many different B vitamins including B1. I believe I may have found my answer but I don't want to say too much in case I'm wrong.

Right now, I'm just enjoying the effects of thinking that I have finally found the right vitamin to replenish.

I take a vitamin B-Complex pill. It includes all B vitamins. They seem to give me a lot of energy. In fact I have to be careful not to take them to late into the afternoon because then I'm up all night with energy to burn :)

Maybe it's a mild effect from the opioid peptides in milk. Some people are more sensitive to it than others.

My son is really enjoying this! He drank some milk & started jumping around.- all 6'1 175 lbs. "I'm having opiod peptides!"

Have you ever bought a bottle of Organic, low fat chocolate milk and added protein powder to it? I don't care what time of the day or night... it propels my mood exponentially.

    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Pork Fried Rice  (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) Prep time: About 15 minutes Cook time: About 10 minutes Makes: 3-4 servings   Ingredients: 4 Pork Chops,  1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoons black pepper 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil 1/2 large or 1 small onion 2 large carrots 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 green cabbage, very finely sliced 1-2 heads of broccoli, roasted and salted(optional) 2-3 eggs 2-3 cups cooked white rice  2 Tablespoons gluten-free Tamari or Coconut Aminos Sriracha (optional)   Instructions: 1. Cut pork chops into small bite sized pieces.  2. Next add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a large wok and heat on medium-high heat for a about a minute.   3. Add your chopped pork chops to the wok and season with the salt, black pepper.  Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned. 4.

Add your cooked rice and about 2 Tablespoons of Tamari. Mix everything together and cook for another 3-4 minutes or just enough to warm up the rice.
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!
