In Topic: Where Are These Food Sensitivities Coming From?

UPDATE:
I stopped eating ALL TRACES of rice and corn and grains 20 days ago.

I can now eat:
Avocados (without getting diarrhea)
Hemp seeds
Spinach

The reaction to these foods is 80% better. These are the only 3 foods I have tested (I'm too afraid to try others, LOL, because my reaction used to be so severe). Each day I notice a little more improvement. Also, I have always lost about 100 hairs when showering. Now I'm losing 6.

So there has been a HUGE improvement. I have read it can take up to 2 months to be able eat the harmless foods again once eliminating grains.





Amazing!!!

Or raise your own. We live in a city that allows it, and have lots of chickens :)

we are in the proccess of hatching out more chickens. Can't wait to have a decent sized flock again. Can't believe that their feed would make a difference. It seems like the hens bodies should metabolize the feed and make and make it safe to eat the eggs. Shows how toxic the corn and soy have become.

When you say allergic, are you talking about IgG or IgE allergies? My son tested IgG positive to all sorts of things.

We tested pos to IgG of many foods. Each person in the family has a list of 4-25 allergen foods.
When I spoke to Dr. O'Bryan last weekend (radio talk show) he said that we have gut permeablity problem. He suggested taking colostrum, but how can we if we are allergic to dairy?

I still don't understand why these sensitivities are popping up now. I used to drink soy milk every day. Now I can't handle the small amounts of soy in my tuna salad. Nuts were never a problem for me, could eat tons of them without problems. I have more GI problems now that I am gluten-free. I felt healthier then. There will be health benefits later on down the road, but for now I am tired of the fussy tummy.

I will look into your diet. Thank you for your permission to view your profile.

The only way to test this theory is if you find a 100% grass-fed hen.



Looks like we have to change our chicken feed as well. I do prefer that my hens free range.

The Gluten Free Society says that about 45% of gluten-sensitive individuals are sensitive to *gluten* (found in all grains), not necessarily the gliadin in wheat, barley and rye. There are also 2 studies that have shown that corn gluten does just as much damage on the intestines of celiacs as wheat gluten. Corn is 55% gluten by weight, while rice is 5% gluten. You might need to eliminate all traces of corn and rice for 2 months and then see if you have a reaction when re-adding them to your diet. I didn't have ANY reaction to corn until I removed it from my diet and then when I re-added it, I had the biggest gluten reaction ever. Corn is in everything, from citric acid, ascorbic acid to vitamins and supplements. If you decide to try avoiding all grains, Google "Corn allergy list" for a complete listing of contaminants. Best of luck :).

Here is the video describing the corn studies: http://www.glutenfre...ity-what-is-it/

Here are a few testimonials from people who said that the traditional gluten-free diet didn't work - they needed a completely gluten-free diet:

Wow, since my son and I are allergic to corn, your idea sounds so right on. Thank you for the added sites. It's hard to know where to start the research sometimes. You will keep me busy for a while. This info strengthens my resolve to go grain free. Thank you so much.




Jestgar,

Thank you on your opinion on the Gluten Free Society. I will keep in mind as I research the topic. It's always good to know who to trust.
