Ok, if you're so allergic to all these things, this tells me (as you have discovered) that your gut is very leaky and with the wrong bacteria. For people with so many allergic reactions, I'd think (I'm not a doctor btw, I just have personal... (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.

I've started to grind my own cashew "flour" as we are trying to avoid almonds too. And I'm finding that chia egg is way better than flax egg for a replacer. I bought a grinder just for chia seeds. Its working really well in baked goods.

As with raw dairy, goat dairy is not magic. If you react to it, don't consume it. Dairy, though tasty, is not necessary for human health.

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.
