  1. Many thanks for your kind and insightful replies! You both know your gene types! I am amazed, I did not know one could figure this out! where do you do that? It is just a hypothesis, I am not sure whether the genes made me that sensitive. I hope we all find out what is causing this stuff, and even better, get healthy. As for now I am very happy and thankful that this great place exist. It is great to know I am not alone. I do take additional vitamins including a lot of B's and calcium, so I guess I am OK in that respect. Thanks again!
  2. I have been lurking this forum for quite a while now and I have noticed that many people have the same intolerances as I do That is, a lot of people cannot eat grains (including rice) nightshade legumes and dairy. I wonder how this is possible, is it a lectin problem, do we share genetic make up and are we simply not build for these? Does anyone have an idea? I would like to know whether there are more people that share my tolerances; I can eat yam, sweet potato, squash, most seeds except sesame, walnuts, most vegetables, all meat but beef, some fish, most fruits, all oil do you have experience with a treatment (alternative or otherwise) that you benefit from? I use fishoil, probiotics and digestive enzymes, especially hcl benefits me do you have other issues/diseases that may be related? I have IBS, hormone inbalances and blood sugar issues (allergy related), I had parasites but these are gone now I hope that people respond, I think we may learn from eachothers experiences!
