Reintroduced Foods And Still Intolerant?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I do have leaky gut and tested intolerant to 55+ foods. About six weeks ago, I decided to start reintroducing a few. I hadn't had egg yolks or bananas in five months and they were a no go. I hadn't had dairy in over a year and OUCH! It is WORSE than before!

Does this mean I should scratch these off the list forever? I have stopped reintroducing foods. It's not worth it to feel lousy.

Anyone have success in reintroducing foods that you were not successful reintroducing previously? If so, how long did you wait?

No. I was diagnosed with a few food allergies and lots of inhalant ones many years ago. I avoided these for a few years. Later, I was able to add eggs back into my diet, but only baked in cookies, etc. Thinking that I have been feeling pretty darn good these last few weeks (aside from a hyperthyroid), I ate an egg for the first time in 20 years! I soft boiled it. Bad choice. I am still reacting to it and it has been five days. I can say that early strict avoidance has calmed down my reactions. Perhaps I should not have not tested eggs during the height of pollen season! Will try again next winter.

I know someone who is allergic to a certain fish but only during the springtime when a particular pollen is out. That is so random! I am beginning to believe that stress can cause the body to be more reactive. At least, that's what I'm telling myself ;). I am not going to reintroduce intolerant foods until my life conditions ease up. I hope it's that simple.

Failed every challenge these past three years -- but am starting to get some things back in moderation:

 

fresh cheeses, butter, cream, corn and rice thus far

 

-- of course this is since I started with mast cell medications (histamine and mast cell blockers), so I'm not the best example.

Yum! That's good to know. Whenever I start reading those threads, I mentally check out. I'm assuming if I have these issues, they will make themselves obvious... Maybe on a strong day, I'll do some light reading!
