Allergic to Almost all Food - Eating Meat....Support?!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.  I've been eating a limited diet since 2007 when I first had allergic reactions to foods and my body went "hyper sensitive", I went gluten-free fully in 2009 and have been living a great life by eating healthy and gluten-free.  About 6 months ago I had 10 reactions in a two month time frame, went on an even cleaner diet, and was good for two months, and then it happened again. Plus I had a reaction to dye free Benadryl. I saw two different functional medicine doctors and signed on with one of them. He took my labs and told me my yeast levels are very high, I have leaky gut and other than that I should be an easy fix because my thyroid and other numbers were good. Well adrenal fatigue I have too of course. (:  Last week he put me on Paleo Protein and L-Glutamine. Both I'd tried the week before in small amounts and did okay with. Well last week Tuesday I reacted to the Paleo Protein and it really stirred up something in me, because Wed I had a reaction to one bite of eggplant and then bruseel sprouts later in the day and they've always been fine. Thursday morning Turkey got stuck in my throat and I felt off from that. So I went back to chicken, beef and water and kept taking the L-Glutamine. Friday I felt funky and so Saturday I stopped talking the L-Glutamine and had chicken and bison. Felt great for the first day. Today I tried just a little bit of the l-glutamine in water again and my throat started to clench and my face felt full. Then my lips felt numb.  So my first question is....what do you guys take other than Benadryl if you're having a stronger reaction??? I have HistDAO histamine blocker, but if I need more I don't know what to take.  Next....help! those of you that are down to only meat and water too, what is working for you???  Thirdly, how off is my body to have a reaction to L-Glutamine? I just can't do anything man-made. Can anyone relate to any of this??

I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.

 Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!

The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.

Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.

Thanks everyone!  The L-Glutamine is from Nutri-Dyne and the Paleo Protein is from Dynamic and is sold by Nutri-Dyne. Is this the brand you got sick from?

It won't let me attach a picture. It's the Pure Beef Protein Isolate French Vanilla with vanilla seeds in the front.

Yours looks safe I was using paleo pro back then and the company changed from gluten free to manufactured in the same facility as.
