  1. I feel you. It took me quite a while to get a handle on my situation. I found keeping a daily log (Google-Docs Spreadsheet) of my symptoms and reactions along with my food intake, was extremely helpful in discovering patterns and correlating the symptoms with specific foods, and eliminating them...
  2. Gotcha. Yea, dried fruit (figs, dates, apricots, prunes), White rice, Mackerel, chocolate, nuts, Oils (coconut, olive, etc..). And again, having a positive result on allergy test, does not guarantee that you will indeed react to it. The only way to know for certain, is by trial and error. So...
  3. I see. It's worth noting that having positive IGE against a particular food, does not guarantee that you will have an allergic reaction to it. With respect to IGG tests, there is as yet little scientific evidence that it is an accurate measure of one's tolerance towards towards various foods. When...
  4. Hi, I did not end up pursuing the elemental diet at all. The main reasons where the financial cost, and the fact that it's not sustainable. Yes, that's correct. Rotation diet means eating different foods on different days. The goal being, to avoid repeatedly exposing the immune system to...
  5. As the others have alluded to, gluten sensitivity is not an allergy, which means it cannot be detected using the transitional means. That being said, there is growing research and many MD's who are beginning to acknowledge the many adverse effects gluten can have on susceptible individuals. I...
  6. Hi. What I ended up doing was as follows: I Began a 4 day rotation diet, with an emphasis on keeping the protein content low. More specifically, For each food on the rotation diet, I limited the protein content to 15 - 20 grams (See here for why). As it turned out, I was still reacting to some...
  7. If you are referring to non IGE-mediated food sensitivities, there are currently no tests available which can guarantee correct results. The validity of IGG tests as a measure of tolerance is questionable at best. Unfortunately, the only way to know for certain how you respond to those foods, is...
  8. Leaky Gut aka intestinal hyperpermeability, is very much a real condition, and there are existing scientifically credible tests to measure the degree of permeability. (see lactulose-mannitol test). Now whether or not various conditions are caused by this, is an entirely different question. While...
  9. It may seem overwhelming at first, but like all things, once you do it for long enough it becomes second nature. More importantly, if it works, then it is well worth the effort. I did the rotation diet for a year or so. It took some time for me to get it right, as I still had to identify all...
  10. Been there before. What I found is, identifying and avoiding problematic foods is not enough, as you may start developing sensitivities to the new foods. You need to get the core of the issue: A hyper-permeable (or leaky) gut allows non-fully digested food parts into the bloodstream. These food-parts...
  11. Yes, it does. I have multiple food sensitivities, including dairy. One of my worst symptoms is depression & mood swings. For me, it usually comes on around 15 minutes after consuming the food, along with muscle-twitching, rapid heart-rate, and overall feelings of "agitation". The best way...
  12. At the moment I am in pretty tight situation, where I have developed allergies to all foods I have been eating, even while following a strict 4 day rotation diet. I assume I have a really severe case of leaky gut, which could explain why this is happening. Working with my doc, I have just taken...
