Help, What Am I Reacting To?

Recommended Posts

I am hoping some of you can help me understand what I am reacting to. I have been having mild reactions on and off after in the last two weeks. I get the usual migraine and feel very sleepy and foggy. I have been trying to identify the culprit but I no luck so far. I get these reactions after eating breakfast and figured it has to be one or several of theses:

 

Justin's almond butter

Bob's Red Mill flax seed

Bob's Red Mill chia seeds

Let's do Organic shredded coconut

Larabar Jocalat hazelnut

 

I stopped eating the Jocalat bars thinking it was that, but I kept having reactions. I am confused because  I have been able to have the other ingredients with no problem on other occasions in the past.

 

I react to gluten, corn and dairy. I feel like this is more of a corn reaction but I am not sure. 

 

Any ideas?

Remove all possible offenders for a few weeks. Add each one back one at a time. Watch what happens.

 

That's what I was going to say.  That works best for me.  You can drive yourself crazy trying to compare your reactions to the reactions of others.  This takes diligence but works.

Thank you both for your advice. I just wanted to post an update. I found out that I react to some of Bob's Red Mill gluten free flours. I'm thinking gluten or corn cross-contamination. I react strongly to corn, so that might be it. Now I need to find a safer brand, or make my own...

Do you know if you react to oats?  I reacted to BRM too, and I talked to them about it.  At that time, they processed their gluten-free oats in the same facility as all the other gluten-free items.  Or, of course corn.  That's a difficult one, I hear.
