Where Are These Food Sensitivities Coming From?

Recommended Posts

UPDATE:

I stopped eating ALL TRACES of rice and corn and grains 20 days ago.

I can now eat:

Avocados (without getting diarrhea)

Hemp seeds

Spinach

The reaction to these foods is 80% better. These are the only 3 foods I have tested (I'm too afraid to try others, LOL, because my reaction used to be so severe). Each day I notice a little more improvement. Also, I have always lost about 100 hairs when showering. Now I'm losing 6.

So there has been a HUGE improvement. I have read it can take up to 2 months to be able eat the harmless foods again once eliminating grains.

Amazing!!!

Corn is super hard to avoid. Since it is not a top 8 allergen it doesn't have to be labeled, and CC doesn't have to be labeled.

Our strategy for avoiding it is to:

1. Use almost nothing that comes from a factory.

2. Call manufacturers and ask questions about produced things that we do need to use.

We probably do touch things with corn - so much stuff you'd never think of (plastic-like materials, for example) is made of it. Fortunately none of us are that sensitive.

Even getting traces orally from cross-contaminated lines means my son gets a terribly congested head, though.


Our family is transitioning off the GAPS Intro Diet and into the Full GAPS Diet.

Gluten-Free since November 2010

GAPS Diet since January/February 2011

me - not tested for celiac - currently doing a gluten challenge since 11/26/2011

partner - not tested for celiac

ds - age 11, hospitalized 9/2010, celiac dx by gluten reaction & genetics. No biopsy or blood as we were already gluten-free by the time it was an option.

dd - age 12.5, not celiac, has Tourette's syndome

both kids have now-resolved attention issues.
