In Topic: Raw Food Diet

28 February 2007 - 09:24 PM

I've known a few people who suffered severe malnutrition on this diet. One girls hair started falling out and she looked extremely anorexic. The best diet is a well balanced one. Eating raw fruits and veggies is good, but your body needs more than that.

When you have as many food allergies as I do it tends to rule a large portion of your life. Obsessive-compulsive disorders all ready run in my family, so I guess it's just natural for this to happen to someone like me! But I have noticed, and I hope no one takes offense to this, that a lot of people here tend to have symptoms of orthorexia. For example, not eating lechitins or anything from ther nightshade family because they think it's bad for us. It just seems a little TOO much. I don't know if people with allergies/intolerances tend to become obsessive-compulsive, or are obsessive-compulsive people drawn to these kinds of communities?

Wow, no responses. No one in this forum sufferes from an over obsession with food anmd the effects it has on their body. I find that very hard to believe.

In Topic: Lump In Throat

I had this same problem. It turned out to be from acid reflux. I got on nexium and eventually it got better. You should have the doctor take a look at it. It could be a tumor too, though that is very unlikely. My point is you should talk to a medical expert about your problem before diagnosing yourself.

In Topic: About To Go Dairy Free And Depressed As All Get Out About It

I was diagnosed allergic to milk when I was in college. I ate pizza and ended up in the emergency room on breathing treatments. It was scary. After testing and eliminating it from my diet a lot of my skin problems and asthma cleared up. I've been dairy free for almost 10 years.
It was hell at first. I loved cheese....macaroni and cheese, cheesy piza, jalapenos stuffed with cheese....it was my favorite food. I'm so used to it now that the smell of cheese is digusting to me. It smells like something rotting. I also have air born milk allergies. To cook stuff with milk in it around me makes me have breathing problems and hives.
I guess you have more alternatives though, because I am anaphylectic allergic to soy as well.
