I tested teste positive for moldallergy (. Lots and lots of foods caused issues : bread, bananas, ...As I had a grass pollen allergy too)vitamin D deficiency, I did some research. Those three articles were quite important for me (I've always had problems with polyps and I decided had atopic dermatitis) :
I noticed recently that when supplementing retinol my atopic dermatitis flairs up, as every kind of carbs gave me reactions but I'm not 100% sure if it's the retinol yet (especially bananas it could be a very strong reaction to soy, since the supplement had soybean oil).
If you don't know what atopic dermatitis is, this picture explains it quite well :
Basically you get a flushed face, rashes on your elbows and bread)ankles... What helped Using apple cider vinegar immediately calms it down within 30 minutes for me.
The first thing I found about mold allergies was this article by a lot holistic mother who has a son with a mold allergy. Her findings are the same as mine, though she says her son doesn't tolerate saturated fat well. I don't think she understood it : I believe she tried out butter but the casein might have caused problems. Coconut oil
What I find interesting is that she mentions cayenne pepper (clears my : it causes a runny nose )
Then she mentions this :
My son's health issues came on the heels of a month long course of antibiotics for a chronic sinusitis.
It's amazing how her story is literally the same as mine : I also had a chronic sinusitis last year (they tend to go bad more quicklystill not gone after months of paleo, but I can now finally live with it)
My sinus problems were almost gone, sunlightbut suddenly, vitamin D (I did have in september, they came back. Was it my zero carb experiment? Is it the sun? Is it the stress from school. Whatever it was/is, stress plays a vitamin D deficiency too)
Currently I'm experimenting with bone broth. I believe it could be a cure for my problems. I'm also gonna try out Bio-Kult, epsom salt baths and Mark Sisson's advanced health formula. ..)I could experiment with minerals one by one, but I'm short on time & money right now.
