Hello Laura. The reason the allergies took awhile to reappear is probably because you are having an IgG response rather than IgA: IgG takes 48-72 hours to show versus true allergies which are immediate. The problem with IgG is over time the... (more)

Warts are a virus. The healthier your body is, the less influence things like viruses have. I think you could heal them by healing your body. Why not?

Gluten can create migraines, allergies, you name it. If it's better on gluten-free, then you were gluten-intolerant and you didn't know it. Just like 90% of us around here.

One suggestion if you have a hard time parting with dairy would be to buy a yogurt maker and make your own yogurt and ricotta cheese- but ferment it for 30 hours. Body Ecology Diet and GAPS both have recipes for yogurt made this way.

I wouldn't suspect the lipids themselves that are problematic, but perhaps what's dissolved in the lipids. Are you sensitive to soy? Isoflavones might be an issue. You're probably get a dose of soy when you use random "vegetable" oil.

I use olive oil for most of my cooking. But for occasional frying corn oil has the highest smoke point and the least odor when frying. Canola oil has a bad smell when frying so I think it's the worst of the three.
