Mapping out other Intolerances

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

 

So I have been looking over my food journal for the past few months and noticing other intolerance that I am sorta in denial about. I used to have issues with carbs, sugars, fruit, etc. issues like bloating, and bloody stool. I denied these and blamed it on bad gut bacteria til I got my UC dia. and had a medical reason to remove them from my diet.  A food journal can point out alot of issues if you list what you had with how you felt, and cross reference patterns and check ingredients. Then proceeding with a elimination diet, of removing all signs of the culprit, by changing to a simple more whole foods diet of a select few ingredients, try introducing the suspected culprit in the purest of forms and seeing how you react remove again and double check in 24-48 hours. This method is the most sure fire way to pick them out, you can even try varying the amount you consume to find your tolerance >.> not suggested but I have a few things I like to use and sometimes consume in tiny amounts.

DISCLAIMER,  Gluten should NOT be consumed in any amount (this causes damage to your body even in very trace amounts if you have celiac and can set you back in months in the healing process) , or anything else that triggers a immune response. My suggestion to intolerance are strictly to things that might cause fermentable gas issues, or indigestion like symptoms. If it causes major distress, vomiting, Diarrhea, do not eat it. Nor am I a medical professional these are all just personal opinions to how I PERSONALLY handle these. We are all different and in the end it is up to you to make your choices I am just showing my point of view and opinions.

Things to help when you do eat a intolerance, Activated charcoal can help with gas and bloating. Digestive enzymes can help break them down faster, in some cases with minor issues this can make eating them in trace amounts in seasonings, or CC tolerable. Some members swear by a gas X like product, pepto bismal, and mint tea. 

Few of mine and reactions I have noticed, onions, garlic in moderate amounts cause gas, bloating, and fatigue, I still eat them in small amounts cause I love how they bring some dishes out when used as a seasoning. Cumin I love it but it makes me really tired after consuming and a bit heavy indigestion.  Most vinegar aside from coconut and apple cider make me fatigued and indigestion.  Alot of prepackaged broths containing a mix of any of these really just make me want to sleep and cause burping, indigestion.   Product with xantham gum have to be consumed in very small amounts same with cellulose fiber, seems the stuff floats? I tend to burp up a film of stuff a few hours after eating them, size and amount of film/slime is proportionate to the amount I consumed, Noticed this is some processed condiments/sauces/powder mixes when I use them.  List goes on with a few other odd balls that cause triggers like these. >.< I have tried some things that are wonderful but contain a combination of these that just makes me really sick. Sorta like meats, I love meats but when I eat them I either puke them up 3-4 hours later or in the case of soft fish and crab, the majority of it passes all the way through my system and you can identify strands of the meat in the stool when I eat a lot of it. Fish, crab, and super lean longhorn do not come back up but tend to just pass with no ill effects other then not digesting completely so I treat myself once a twice a month to small amounts still. Dairy is a HUGE no for me in even trace amounts lactose can cause me issues all down my tract from vomiting to D, Whey causes fever and gas (I am also allergic to it). CORN I am highly allergic to, I do not get the whole throat swell, but I get blood blisters all in my digestive tract, mouth, etc. Run a fever and touching corn causes a red skin rash that will peel off the skin like a burn a few weeks later.   Soy other then letchin will cause me to bloat painfully, so it is avoided. Peanuts cause my intestines to swell, and distend leading to hours of puking and withering in pain. Olives cause me to vomit same with olive oil, some foods with a olive extract do not bother me (Unsure what causes this)  Bell peppers I have a slight allergy to that just causes a tiny bit of fatigue, I tend to use them in seasonings and sauces in small amounts regardless. THESE are the ones I can think of off the bat.
