Apples?!?!

Recommended Posts

BTW--as a side note, I have become intolerant to bananas after eating them every morning for so long. They were a "safe" food for me, but now, they bother me for some reason. I'm not going to try another for maybe 6 months or so and see if they still are bothersome.

Well thats just it, I dont eat them all that often. Just happened to be on sale.

Fruit can be very cleansing, particularly if eaten on an empty stomach. So, maybe it was just washing out some other gunk in your system. Maybe it wasn't the apple, but the other stuff it was cleaning up that made you sick. Eat some junk food, it's not cleansing ... kidding.

Maybe it is the coffee and you don't know it. Too much caffeine causes GI/Diahrea symptoms. I think I read up to 8 cups of 8 ounces a day will make anyone go straight to the bathroom.

ONE cup of coffee is enough to give me diarrhea, gas, and cramps!

I stopped eating apples this fall because whenever I would eat one I'd get burpy and then get a headache/nauseous feeling. I know these apples were not waxed because I bought them off a farm. Come to think about it I've had apple pie since then and didn't get the same feeling. Hmmm maybe the peeling is the culprit or being cooked changes it. I've had applesauce too with no problem, lol I'm just realizing this.

That sounds like it!

Can not be the follow:

1) eating to many apples for long time... cause have not been...only get them when on sale

2) too much fiber... got the reaction after only a few bites

3) other food/drink... did not eat/drink any.

Its defintly the apples though cause the reaction was with in minutes of that fisrt bite.

UGH!!!

I never had all these food allergies either.

I must say -- NOW, I have a problem with APPLEs too. Never did before!

All these secondary allergies did NOT come on me until 4 or 5 years gluten & dairy free. :angry: I never cheated-- ever! I have developed a problem with so many things, NOW my diet is very limited. I think it is something we [ALL] need to study a bit more. In a couple of the celiac disease books I've read they address the very real issues of secondary allergies that many of us Celiac's get as time passes. I created a thread to see if some of the old-time > (people who have had it more then 5 or 10 years) Celiac's that have been living with celiac disease could help many of us... No one has posted anything yet. Maybe I posted in the wrong spot.

Have you been tested for apples?

Be well!

Yikes, this is one I know a lot about. My youngest son is allergic to apples. Not only does he get the bloating, gas, stomach pain, etc., but his mouth itches and his lips swell. He can eat them cooked, however and the dr. said it is because the heat changes the chemical makeup of the food. This is not the case with protein foods like casein, soy and nut allergies apparently. Also, I remember on another thread a couple of months ago, someone had some interesting info on cross-allergies. For instance if you are allergic to a certain antibiotic or tree, then you may have an allergy to a food or whatever that is related chemically. (I hope I am explaining it right) Will try to find that other thread. Anyway, hopefully you can still have gluten-free apple pie!! :D

Here is the list I think Robbin may have been refering to. I posted it after my allergist gave me a printout --

In that post you have..

Also, they may correspond with outdoor allergens this way:

Trees--apple, peach, cherry, apricot, plum, pear, kiwi, celery, carrot, potato and hazelnut

Grass--celery, cereal grains, and potato

Weeds--apple, carrot, celery, kiwi, orange and peanut

Ragweed--banana, cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon

Sooo not sure what that is say. I am allergic to Oak, so that means that the trees line would be bad?

I have found truth to this. But I never had any of these allergies before I went gluten & dairy free for 5 years. Except ragweed.

This is what I'm allergic to --

I have a reactive problem or allergy with these -->

TREES: APPLE'S PEACHES & HAZELNUTS

GRASS: CEREAL GRAINS POTATOES

WEEDS: APPLES (not cooks - when cooked they aren't so bad on me) ORANGES, PEANUTS

RAGWEED: (ragweed from the North East I'm allergic too) I'm not sure about the melons they seem okay - I LIVE ON BANANAS!

Eating too much fiber can make you very nauseous and sick to your stomach...add that to the coffee, with its caffiene and fiber-like results, and that might explain why you feel so yucky now...

I can not tolerate apples at all. They are almost as bad as gluten for me. It doesn't make any difference where they come from. I have an apple tree in my back yard so there is no pesticides or wax and they blow through me just as fast as i eat them.

Patti!! Thank you--Sorry to butt in on your thread, Vincent, but Patti-did your information have a link to almonds? Like what is comparable as far as weeds, trees, etc.? Thanks :)

Also, Vincent have you tried them cooked as an experiment yet? Can you eat them cooked Iann?

I can't eat apples in any form. Juiced, cooked, peeled it doesn't matter the end result is always the same and it ain't pretty.

I can eat one apple with no problem. However, once I had some really delicious ones and made the mistake of eating two and like Ian said, it definitely was not pretty :rolleyes:

I can only think that you must be sensitive to the acid for some reason. I've been eating more fruit than noraml recently and I developed a huge canker sore on my tongue. Now I've cut down again, it's gone!

Gosh Vincent--what next!? :lol: Seriously, I have had to cut way back on fruit. The only thing I really do right now is a small glass of apple juice in the morning. I love orange juice, but it is too acid for me now. Same with banana, blueberries, and strawberries. If I drink grape juice two days in a row, I get a canker sore. I do sometimes eat an apple--always peeled, though. I'm using more veggies as snacks--celery w/peanut butter is good. Do you think we get more sensitive before we get better? That would explain a lot :D
