Food Allergy Questions
I have psoriasis and I am SICK OF IT. I recently discovered Paleo and have even read that it can reverse my condition! I will be 100% dedicated but I just need some help. I have taken a food allergy test and the following items have come up as... (more)
Ever since I was four I've had chronic sinus and ear infections. So many that now at the age of 30 I have scarring on my eardrums and slight hearing loss. I've been to multiple "specialists" none of which have been able to figure out what's... (more)
I have leaky gut, GERD, peptic ulcer, and a ton of food allergies. I am currently taking a 100 billion CU probiotic and an herbal pill from my acupuncturist to restore my spleen qi deficiency. I have not yet to have any relief from either of them.... (more)
I would take colostrum because of the amount of IgA, PrP's and other constituents that help heal the gut! The colostrum that has done research and has been written up in an editorial is Immune Tree.
Hey everyone! So I have been paleo for about 6 months now. In the beginning, I absolutely ADORED everything about paleo. In many respects, I still do. It gives me more energy, more clarity, less need to eat everything in sight, etc, etc. Except... (more)
I just read this article To Prevent Kids' Food Allergies, Start Peanuts, Eggs Sooner which talks about how a review of existing research now suggests starting babies on the more allergenic foods (peanuts, eggs, dairy, soy) around 4-6 months as... (more)
I'm gluten/dairy sensitive (and eliminating corn, soy and chocolate more recently). I've had a weird neurological symptom for about 5 months, like a non-verbal tic, with my tongue and lips and middle teeth. Does anyone have any idea what might... (more)
This is a bit controversial testing method, but nevertheless, I decided to take it as one of the last options and results came in yesterday. Test taken was by Cambridge Nutritional Sciences - FoodPrint 200. Strong allergens: egg white, mussel,... (more)
Hey all, I'm looking to get to the bottom of my son's constant running nose and cough. Just got lab results back from the doc for food allergies. Our insurance stinks so we only did the basics. I'm scouring the net to try to figure out what the... (more)
For a while now I have been dealing with a severe case of multiple food allergies, where I continuously develop allergies (delayed-onset IGG type) to pretty much all foods after consuming them for a short period of time. I understand the... (more)
I came across a few articles that referenced this company, US Biotek, that provides IgE, IgG, and IgA antibody panels that test for food allergies and sensitivities, and I was wondering if anyone out there has ever tried this. I'm curious about... (more)
Is there anything in conventional eggs or eggs in general that could attribute to dark circles? I had a slight cold about two weeks ago and wasn't feeling too hot. I decided for the hell of it that I was going to give eggs a break. Previously I... (more)
I've been paleo for about 4 months now and had some great results. Weightloss (about 10kgs) and muscle gain. My wife has been interested by my progress and gave my current diet a go. I will usually eat eggs cooked in butter or ghee or coconut... (more)
i was told that I am allergic to cow dairy... i was relieved to find that goat milk yogurt is easily available, however, I have recently experienced symptoms of watery eyes, runny nose, mucous in throat after I consume it....should I switch to... (more)
Hello. I wanted to start eating raw egg yolks, since its preparation is less time-demanding ( I can just add it to my morning smoothie ), but whenever I eat like that my abdomen bloats and I feel heavy on my body. Does anybody else react... (more)
Took my 4 year old to the doctor Thursday because she had a wheezing cough and a fever. I have always assumed she had allergies because she is always itching her nose and sneezes several times (last I counted, 14x) in a row when she wakes up. She... (more)
So here is the thing i have been paleo for over a year now and never been better! Im allergic to dairy and wheat. But now i am in Thailand training @ http://www.tigermuaythai.com/ in Phuket ( i strongly recommend for everyone to try this) My... (more)
Sort of a general question - I've never been tested for food allergies. I'm not sure I even have any, but have always been curious. Or even food sensitivities: would love to know what my body chemistry can and can't metabolize so well. Thing is,... (more)
hello again, i am interested in finding out if i have any food sensitivities - i highly suspect wheat and dairy. i have eliminated them from my diet, and then reintroduced them. but i'm not sure if i am over analyzing the return of symptoms such... (more)
When going Paleo many years ago, nearly everything got better, except one thing which I have nearly given up on trying to figure out. Post nasal drip is a huge issue for me and happens on a daily basis. It is worst in the morning after waking up... (more)
You almost certainly have chronic rhinosinusitis and IMO at this point it is not likely to respond to diet. The recommendation for fermented foods is worth trying, but if no response to that, then: 1) Get Immunocap quantitative allergen IgE blood... (more)
I used chia seeds for the first time in a batch of homemade Kombucha on Thursday and by Friday morning I was having violent diarrhea, which lasted for two full days, approximately every 30 minutes. Other than the diarrhea, weakness from... (more)
You're not alone! For me it wasn't kombucha, it was chia seed pudding. While my reaction wasn't quite as strong as yours (thankfully), the general outline was the same. FYI: I've learned that I don't tolerate sesame seeds very well either.
First, some background. After a lifetime of suffering with Topic-A dermatitis and fibromyalgia, respectively, my mom and dad got tested for food allergies and discovered many culprits, which, once eliminated from their diets relieved most of their... (more)
But how do you explain allergies to paleo-friendly foods like meat? I have friends who have "allergic" reactions to CAFO meat, but not grass-finished/antibiotic-free meat.
I've been (mostly) paleo for over a year now -- but I only eliminated dairy about a month ago. Eliminating dairy seems to be helping a lot: I'm losing a little more weight, my skin is clearer and brighter, and I don't hit a mid-day slump like I... (more)
It sounds to me like your body is giving you the clear communication that dairy, even in the form of ghee, is not working for you. Some people really are that allergic, it's certainly not unheard of. I would continue to avoid all forms of dairy,... (more)
I'm pretty sure it's possible to be intolerant of any food if your body is out of whack, but I want to know if anyone has heard of people being intolerant to pork. When I eat it I feel slightly queasy, and then I have to go poop like every time I... (more)
You don't happen to have a Jewish relatives? The pork thing tends to come with the territory. Although its not usually due to allergies. But I wonder if kosher laws have anything to do with common allergies.
So since starting Paleo, my body's reactions to foods is standing out to me more, which I think is a very good thing. I'm eating simply enough to be able to tell how I feel. I'm wondering if anyone had info on chitinase/latex type food reactions.... (more)
I've eaten eggs my entire life, but since becoming Paleo over the past year, I've experienced a tenfold upswing in my egg eating. As a part of my routine, I've been eating 5-6 pasture raised eggs purchased from a local farmer. Until recently, I... (more)
I too developed an allergy to egg whites as a result of increased exposure. My solution has been to hard boil them and discard the whites and only eat the yolks. I don't experience any stomach upset this way and I get the feeling that the reduced... (more)
