At the restaurant I bring my own or come with a contented full tummy. I invite you to follow my food blogs for ways to repair gut tender spots. I am not a doctor just an avid health nut. With good nutritional doctor advice you may get back some of the lost foods. Be sure to supplement vitamins-minerals-and shrinking hormone production. Does infection trouble you of just gut ache? Are you gluten-free? You may want to explore the acid/alkaline topic for stress removal. It has been proven that we eat in high acid and may need to adjust a little. Here is a great web site with food lists.

Thank you Margie, its nice knowing there are people who can understand. I just get so scared Nd yes, like you said with vitamin c, its hard to replace. I didnt think about the essential oils. My friend swears by them too. I just need to educate myself in how to make certain flours that I can have and other foods that are just without the things I can't have.

I know what you mean with eating out, its so hard i pretty much gave up on it. My list is only of things that they primarily tested for, but i have discovered even more. Gah!

Hopefully the allergy shots will help me out like she says.

You're only young once,

Hi Stacy/Almostacowgirl, welcome to this team. I totally understand your woes with food and have been exploring to my hearts content for 5 years, so far. But my no-nos list is now so long I can no longer eat in any restaurant or public food service places. I cannot eat from an American Red Cross Van or take in an MRE Emergency food of Meals Ready to Eat. My doctors have no real recovery answers and no solutions. Let us hope you are not at this point. And my do not eat that or use that health and beauty product or take that medicine list continues to grow. I so understand! My Food issues hit a really bad patch when my adrenal fatigue after a battle with a virus pulled my energy way down. Tummy chaos is definitely a processed food woe and my list does contain many whole foods with organic origins, as well.

My citric acid avoidance is necessary yet, I get around citrus flavors by using essential oils (no citric acid in those) from each fruit in my cooking steps while supplementing vitamin C everyday. I have been gluten-free since 2007 and am thinking not just outside the box but beyond, too. I discovered sulfite issues that seem to hit walls. I can not find a professional doctor or nutritionist who can teach me something new about sulfites and my liver aversion to digesting it; though Dr Kennedy in Santa Rosa California taught me a lot on his web site. My inflammation and headache really goes up when my liver gets mad. Studying nutrition and all the foods I cannot eat leads me to the alternative places and foods I can have. And it reminds me to have hope and to share what I have learned-maybe someone can avoid my pitfall.

Please look into adrenal fatigue and energy recovery. Most doctors choose to ignore adrenal issues for financial and political reasons so try to not take it personally, it will not help. When the tiny organ that sits above the kidneys the adrenal glands, and all the lymph nodes throughout the body, goes out; every thing in life is affected. Get a copy of Adrenal Fatigue, the stress syndrome of the 21st century, by Dr James Wilson. Maybe this book can help you find all the stressors that leak and drain precious energy. It has been said that all adults drain the adrenal glands at least once in their lives and 80% can recover. May you fit this hopeful category? If you can recover some of those foods could be replaceable.
We are listening, Almostcowgirl; I so understand.

For starters, my name is Stacy and I'm 38. I just recently discovered MANY of my food allergies and the reason why I always felt so sick.

This last summer I decided to have allergy testing done because I just couldn't eat anything without getting a really sick stomach. Only to discover that I was allergic to MUCH more then I'd planned.

Are you prepared to see my list?

Fish and Shell fish, beef and anything that comes from a cow (casein?).
Avocado's, apples, banana's, pears, orange's and all melons.
String beans, soy beans, celery, corn, cucumbers,lettuce, onions, pea's, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes. All nuts, including coconut. Wheat and rye. Coffee and even CHOCOLATE!!! (Catch what I meant by be prepared?)

Pretty much I can have spinach, rice, barley, carrots, chicken, pork, lamb, eggs, berries and peaches. Ugh...

I know that when the foods that I'm allergic to are cooked, that it reduces the proteins in that food making it less of an allergy effect, but some foods it just doesn't matter and I still get the allergies from it.


Pretty much... I'm scared to death to even eat because everything that I look at eating, seems to have at least one, two or even more of the items I'm supposed to avoid. I love breads, but with the only option of not having an allergy to rice and barley... I'm stumped.

It's embarrasing when you go out with friends or family only to seem like you're being difficult because of all your allergies. Most of the time I just take an allergy pill and just eat in moderation of the items I'm allergic to. I still get sick, but just not as bad on the more pollenated type of foods.
Does anyone have any similarities, and how do you cope?
Thanks for reading.
