Thanks for recreating the thread Patti
How many of you are sensitive to these things, (dairy, soy and corn) or a combination of these things? I've known for a while that I can't handle soy because every time I cook with earth balance, it made me feel gross. I also have found that I can tolerate limited amounts of grains at one time.
This really is frustrating. I used to be able to eat anything, and now I am so reactive to foods. I feel like I live in my kitchen.
I am too intolerant to gluten, dairy, soy and corn. My other sensitivities are not as bad, meaning that I can handle limited amount of nuts / legumes, e.g. on holidays.
But it would make my life so much easier if I would be just intolerant to gluten, dairy, soy and corn and wouldn't have my additional amine / histamine intolerance! I have some kind of threshold that if I eat too much food that is high in amine / histamine I would start to have unpleasant allergic reactions that may last for 2-3 days (depending on the amount of histamine / amines I ate). It looks like it did get better when I went gluten-free, but I still have these reactions... In addition to that for some unknown reason I do not tolerate almost all vitamins / supplements, even hypoallergenic ones and even the ones that other failsafers tolerate.
And yes, I too was able to eat anything, didn't have any allergies / intolerances whatsoever. In fact, nobody in my family has any known allergies. It all started 2 years ago, first dairy, then gluten, then soy and corn. I also had cats and a dog thoughout all my childhood / youth without any issues, but now I have "allergic" type reactions if I am in the same room with a cat or a dog. It is not a true IgE allergy, it doesn't show up on any tests. My body is reacting in a weird way to a lot of different things...
