Thanks everyone!  Sometimes you just need to know you are not the only one in this cruddy boat?  I really appreciate everyone's replys.  I totally agree, gotta be tough and gotta be positive.  I just couldn't smile about it yesterday.  Reading everyone's experiences does help though.  Maybe one day we will all get dairy back!!!  It can happen!

I would recomend either doing the GAPS diet or paleo autoimmune protocol for gut healing.

I tried GAPS but I couldn't tolerate all the fermented veggies.  Turns out the corn based vinegar was killing me.  Thats actually how I discovered I was corn intolerant!  Ha!

Yeap it sucks big time!!! ,, right there with you .

I went into this kicking and screaming and stomping my feet .  I yelled at anyone who would listen ( and a few that did not want to listen) how unfair this was.

Still have my days :P  but it does get better .. may take a while but it dose get better ....Hang in there :wub:


I have gotten some foods back corn,  eggs , dairy :D ( made me  a very happy girl :D ) tomatoes    ..........  but some foods gluten ( of course ) soy ( that stuff is in EVERYTHING !!!! :ph34r: )  potatoes ( I mean really potatoes :blink: )and a few others are on the  never  to be had list :ph34r:

How long did it take you to get some of those foods back?  I feel like 1 1/2 years is a long time but....well I MIGHT be impatient.  :)

Mary88, how do you do with those clear plastic bottles that individual servings of water comes in? I ask because one night I was going to a restaurant for music and I was afraid to even get a beverage. Of course soda is sweetened with corn syrup, and even the iced tea was off limits due to the corn starch they use in tea bags. So I bought myself a bottle of water at the convenience store on the way. I got hit and hit HARD. The next day I looked up the water brand to see if it had something in it and sure enough, the BOTTLE is made from corn! You'd think by the time they got done turning the corn to plastic it wouldn't be a problem, but I KNOW that was the only thing I had eaten or drank that was different from my usual fare. And then I read on some of the corn forums that others have had reactions to this corn plastic too. I have often said that if it were only gluten, life would be easy, but between the gluten, the corn and the soy (not to mention nightshades and salicylates), there is hardly anything safe to eat!

Oddly enough I haven't noticed a reaction to water bottles?  I don't do soda or most tea either.  I can handle trace amounts but not quite THAT sensitive.  What about the wax on fruit?  I find I do ok with whole foods fruit.  How about you?  Weird things they add it to right!?  Do you do medication?  I have a few I take that I know have corn as a binding agent and I seem to do ok.  Can't really afford to compound.  I'm with you though, I react more violently to corn than to gluten.  Stupid intestines ;)

So, if the dextrose is corn derived, would it not be processed to the point of being non detectable, much like wheat based dextrose?



Would be great if that were the case.  Its EXTREMELY common for corn sensitive people to react to iodized salt.  Before I learned corn was the problem I thought I was reacting to tomatoes, beans, soups...everything.  Then I thought, oh CORN!  Turns out as long as I avoid the iodized salt in these items I am fine.  Iodized salt bothers most people with corn intolerances and allergies.  Its very common.  Unfortunate that it causes reactions, but it does.  Again, even things that remove recognizable protiens like corn based liquor or vinegar will cause a reaction in me and many other people.  Sorry, iodized salt is a problem.
