Has Anyone Healed Some Of Their Intolerances?

I (try to, slacked off this year) take Vitamin D supplements all winter at least, which definitely helps keep the sniffles away. B12 and other B vitamins are supposed to be good for combating depression and generally good for energy and mental health. My b12 tends to be a bit low, as does my iron levels, borderline anyway, so I do (try to remember to) take supplements.

 

Back on the intolerances front, I'm also encouraged by other people's success stories. I've been off dairy for 1 1/2 years, and now can tolerate small amounts of cheese on occasion, and small amounts of butter (ghee is better). Also, if I get into dairy my reaction isn't nearly as bad as gluten or soy, so not the end of the world. If I can get cheese back at least, even just goat/sheep, I'd be a very happy lady.

I also haven't touched whole quinoa since last summer, and need to be brave enough to give it another shot.

I think soy is permanently off the menu, however. My reaction is more immediate and often worse than if I get glutened. It's nasty (and makes me nasty too. no fun)

 

So there is hope! Yay!

I was just watching a youtube video yesterday about how normal serum blood tests are not good enough to test for b12. I see my family doctor on wednesday to get bloodwork done...what should i ask for to make sure about my b12?

veganhealth.org is a website by an RD, Jack Norris, who gives good reliable information. 

Someone told me they considered B12 to be an upper.  I never noticed that, but maybe if I took a lot, I would.

    • Hi Jmg, Thanks for the upbeat reply and all the info! I'm gonna chase this up and either rule it in or rule or out. Unfortunately I've missed the boat as far as adding the celiac panels to blood test goes this time round as it's scheduled for early this Tue however! I have just gone and splashed out on the biocard home-test... I'm thinking trying it out will be beneficial either way as extra ammo before docs appointment.  Have you - or anyone else - much experience on the accuracy of such a test? My understanding is that they have generally good reviews but not sure I'm convinced. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/540961 Jen
    • We've done bloodwork again, not everything is back yet, but so far all except for that same one are normal. 
    • I was wondering if anyone could assist me in sore throat remedies. Cough drops? Teas? I am gargling with salt water but wanted something else. Anything gluten free obviously. Thanks. 
    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better
