In brief: Deficiency/Inflam

Avoid all gluten containing foods (preferably all grains and lentils).
Avoid milk based items as well since such foods cause inflammation and sometimes non comprehend-able random symptoms. Consume flesh foods, olive oil, coconut milk/oil, butter, fresh vegetables, some fruits. Take vitamin D3 5000 IU daily, zinc supplement 25 mg for 1 week, probiotics. Get 30-45 min of sunshine at noon daily.
