Can Sleeping Issues Be Linked To Food Sensitivities?

Do you have problems falling asleep, insomnia, waking up throughout the night, vivid dreams, nightmares, night terrors, talking or walking  in your sleep?
 
Processed foods that contain chemicals such as artificial colors, annatto, preservatives and flavor enhancers are often intolerable to people. Food chemical intolerances can manifest themselves through sleep disturbances. Removing packaged foods that contain these ingredients can greatly reduce sleeping issues.
 
Unfortunately, naturally occurring chemicals called salicylates, amines, and glutamates in healthy foods can also cause sleep disturbances.

Amines are formed by the breakdown of protein foods and can affect mental functioning and other body processes. Amines like tyramine in cheese, histamine in wine, and phenylethylamine in chocolate, may be some of the most common ones in our diet. 
 
Salicylates are in apples (golden and red delicious), green grapes, fresh lemon, mangoes, passion fruit, persimmon, pineapple juice, pomegranate and rhubarb.
 
Glutamates are found in cheeses, fish sauce, soy sauce, mushrooms, ripe tomatoes, broccoli, peas, walnuts, wheat gluten.
