I had dandruff my entire life (even on a predominantly raw vegan diet), and it always bugged me because I knew it wasn't natural or normal; it had to be something that I was eating/doing wrong. It turns out I had celiac disease. In one month of being 100 percent gluten free, my gluten induced psoriasis/dandruff has completely vanished, and the bags under my eyes are getting better every day.
