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)

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.

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.

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)

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.

Have you tested yourself in a 100% Paleo diet for at least 4 weeks? If your skin issues go away or deminish, the non-paleo-cheating is your problem - perhaps grains or dairy. Then stick to 100% Paleo. If not, you can proceed to those fancy food... (more)
