Schizophrenia and Diet - Gluten and Other Foods to Avoid

Livestrong.com recommends cutting gluten out of your diet as one way avoid triggering schizophrenia: 

"Mental illness often produces a sensitivity to gluten, which can result in many of the symptoms of schizophrenia. Eliminating gluten sources from your diet will reduce these issues. Gluten is present in foods that contain wheat, rye, barley and their byproducts. Read labels to be sure you are completely avoiding foods that aren't gluten-free. Common foods you will need to avoid include bread, crackers, many cereals, soy sauce, baked goods, beer and some other alcoholic drinks (Link).

Livestrong also recommends avoiding candy and other processed sugars, while adding a good multivitamin and Omega 3 supplement into your diet.
