Other Food Intolerances Disappearing!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd share some good news with everyone, maybe give some new forumers some hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel :)

I've been gluten free for about 8 months now, and slowly but surely my other food intolerances have been disappearing. It wasn't immediate, but I found that eating small amounts of the food every now and then, my reaction to it became less and less severe.

Especially with regards to egg - I started with small amounts of egg in baked goods, then moved to well cooked egg white, and then well cooked egg yolk, and finally normal fried eggs, sunny-side up. Obviously you can't do this if you really have a egg allergy, but it's something to try if you have a non-anaphylactic reaction to egg.

Went on a cruise this week, and somehow managed to survive it without getting too badly hit with gluten :) I had eggs for breakfast every single day, since they didn't have my usual gluten-free grain cereals that I enjoy for breakfast, and had no problems whatsoever.

So my current list of food intolerances that seems to have disappeared :

Nightshades (Briefly when I went gluten-free, this was causing nausea. Disappeared first).

Eggs (A big one)

Chicken (Also big, no problems now)

Olives, coconut (Wasn't sure about these, but they're definitely not a problem now)

Chocolate (Used to get massive headaches/sinus pain from chocolate, not a problem anymore!)

Soy seems to be getting better as well! I've risked small amounts in sauces a few times now, and haven't had any bad reactions so far.

Haven't yet tested goat cheese/milk, but I'm fairly sure it'll be fine.

Quinoa seems to still be a problem :( I'm just going to stay away from that one for now :P Although that could be gluten contamination in the flour since the reaction was to processed Quinoa cereal, so not 100% sure.

Thank you for sharing this,,,It gives me hope :D

I am really OK with NOT eating gluten EVER,EVER again,,

To be honest I really dont think I would ever add soy back into my diet,but it would be nice not to worry so much about CC,,,

I would LOVE to have corn,nightshades and dairy back :D

I tried soy last week, just a tiny little bit in the form of HVP (Hydrolysed vegetable protein). Oh boy did it make me sick :( Soy unfortunately still a big problem for me.

Thanks so much for posting such good news. It gives me hope. I currently can't tolerate gluten, soy, dairy, eggs or yeast. Hearing this makes me feel like some day I will be able to add some variety into my meals again. Congrats!

The website http://www.enzymestuff.com/conditionleakygut.htm gives a good explanation of why other sensitvities are no longer a problem. As you might expect the core problem for most people is a leaky gut. Heal the intestines and most of the problems go away.

Thanks for the link, Edward. (I have seen this site before and it is very helpful) I have read a great deal about leaky guts during the past few years and I also think that in time, healing the gut damage from the celiac will also resolve the other intolerances. My cousin could not eat cheese and now, she can!! I remain hopeful!!

In order to keep the intestines in good condition, my impression is one should take appropriate enzymes and probiotics for life. More during the healing period, and then a maintenance amount later. And we eat less fermented food than other societies and the bad intestinal flora overwhelm the good.

I take both enzymes and probiotics and eat fermented cabbage (homemade) and when I can, will incorporate yogurt.

Good to know I am doing all I can to heal properly.

I did a ton of research and hope it pays off.

Thanks again for your thoughts! :)
