I have tons of food allergies/intolerances, eosinophilic esophagitis. I kind of dabbled with the southbeach diet and the candida diets. I have been semi good with my food allergy diet over the years, but keep battling bacterial and fungal infections. I had only rice, corn, oats and quinoa for the past 2 years. I love my sugar and had not religiously stopped but have purchased honey and stevia. I love my enjoy life chocolate bars and my delicious ice creams and frozen yogurts. I just started trying vegetables this year. I am afraid of having some kind of autoimmune disease or stomach cancer diagnosis if I can't change my ph balance and gut flora. so I am thinking if I go on the paleo diet, I could kickstart something.

I went to an allergist and was told I don't have any allergies, just "sensitivities". He said I don't have OAS - even though I have similar reactions to a lot of the same foods. It seems to me it is more of a difference in diagnosis, and whether it is an anaphelactic type of reaction. I was really discouraged, since he said they only thing I could really do was start a food diary, since it is difficult to determine causes just from noting what I ate, since it varied.

Early in May, I came across some articles about elimination diets. After doing some research, I picked a book to use as a guide, and started on it. I am almost finished with the challenges, and here is what I discovered problems with from the elimination diet: dairy (I get very congested and develop massive amounts of phlegm), peanuts (bad stomach cramps), benzoates (headaches and brain fog), and today tartrazie or yellow dye #5 (very irritated intestines).

The things I already knew I have sensitivities to:
* medical adhesive (not latex) - as in bandaids
* raw onions and (raw or cooked) peppers (cause ulcers in my mouth)
* raw tomatoes, raw cucumbers, all melons (and watermelon), raw almonds - sharp abdominal pain
* orange or grapefruit juice - really irritated mouth and stomach

I can eat onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and almonds cooked - but I have no idea about melons, since the idea of cooking them is kind of gross.

With the dairy issues, I'll have to be even more careful with my food. Usually, I have problems when a restaurant undercooks onions, or one time I had sharp abdominal pain a couple hours after eating at this vegan restaurant, only to discover that the food I ate had little bits of chopped cucumbers in it.

Hi all,

I have OAS (and have had for over 30 years). A friend of mine suggested a supplement, but I am wary, as it is so all natural, that I don't think it is processed enough for me to use it. Have any of you heard of or tried this:

Any insights are helpful and welcome!

Thanks,

I was never told not to eat certain fruits because of my latex and grass allergies. I get full on hives and start wheezing from both. I can't eat peaches but I can eat nectarines. I lived in the country earlier though so unsure if my doc would know anything about it. Just found this on WebMD.

"Foods to Watch Out For

Ragweed Allergy: "Ragweed, in theory, cross-reacts with bananas and melons, so people with ragweed allergies may react to honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelons, or tomatoes," says Warren V. Filley, MD, from the Oklahoma Allergy & Asthma Clinic in Oklahoma City.

Zucchini, sunflower seeds, dandelions, chamomile tea, and echinacea also go on that list.

Birch Pollen Allergy: People with birch pollen allergies may react to kiwi, apples, pears, peaches, kiwi, plums, coriander, fennel, parsley, celery, cherries, carrots, hazelnuts, and almonds.

Grass Allergy: People with grass allergy may react to peaches, celery, tomatoes, melons, and oranges, according to the AAAAI.

Latex Rubber Allergy: Like pollen allergy, people allergic to latex rubber may react to bananas, avocados, kiwi, chestnut, and papaya."

I have OAS symptoms mostly to fruits. I eat organic fruits and veggies only. I attended a raw food workshop and was told soaking nuts and seeds in food grade H202 would reduce allergic reactions to nuts and seeds. Well, I tried it. I soak my seed and tree nuts in peroxide for about 5 minutes then I sprout them in water. I have fewer reactions to nuts and seed. The person conducting the raw food work shop was a nutritionist who said most seed and nuts have a fungus that is what causes allergic reactions. I know walnuts foam from the peroxide a lot and I have significant reactions to walnuts as well as many other nuts and seed. Perhaps you can try that. It helps.

I have severe OAS. I can eat just about anything cooked with the exception of some seeds and nuts. But I cannot eat any raw or undercooked veggies or fruit, nuts, or grains. The last time I ate an apple (almost 20 years ago) my throat nearly swelled closed. I have hayfever-like responsed to the spray generated from cutting or peeling apples, potatoes or carrots. My most severe reactions have been to apples, raw potatoes, carrots and sunflower seeds. In addition, I have systemic reactions to egg whites and shrimp. I would welcome any tips people have for eating healthy with such limitations.

my mom and dad have it, one of my mom's uncles had it & after he was 80 years old he "grew" out of it & has no more problems.
We boil the heck out of veggies. We only eat canned fruit.
I am going to the denver Natl Jewish center to see if there are more people like me.
My doc said the food allergies are related to pollens in the air. I have been on allergy shots for 2 years.

Hi Tracey
Welcome to the friendly place with us here at this team, Butterflyhowl. I am Margie100%pure. I cannot eat in a restaurant for many little reasons that add up to big pain later. Unless I bring my food from my picnic box/bag with me, I do not eat. This has been a sound, yet socially adverse decision. Here is one example: Because my ritual of attending a distant home, the planned hostess would not make foods for my unique diet this year because ‘other’ relatives were eating in an ‘off’ pattern, too; so my option is to just stay home.

My sister stopped talking to me; I spoke in ‘negative’ language during visits. Most people prefer to hang around with persons whom are up beat; enthusiastic, willing to participate in active events and mutual feedings; does not back out of plans because of a little pain.

I am sorry our medical community did not assist sooner better and more tenderly.

Yeah, my diet is called, Find it and stop that!!

I am exploring a new word: NUTRIMENTAL. It is a nutritional way of thinking. Do you buy junk for yourself or the family or do you buy nourishing highly packed with known nutrients using the only options available. This was a shocker because professional food service places; including any hostile-pital has not seen my food know how. We do need to be in an understanding group. Economically, it is not feasible to restock pantry shelves in restaurants at large. The food world is tooled toward the average person. People spend millions of dollars on new and repairs; the average air conditioner is designed to handle 20% less than full on and pegging out on all settings; this cooks the unit. Well, we cook the unit! It is not cost effective to adapt to uncommon foods when others will not buy it or it costs more than what the businesses had budgeted. Under Gras laws; Generally Regarded As Safe. It is an FDA ruling written somewhere to protect food manufacturers from loss of profit, as much as possible. The food sold to me in a public setting requires different food safety laws and regulations from the ones I really need; currently established public food serving laws are quite adverse to my health.

I tend to be active on other teams that do relate to my allergies and intolerances. I will see you between the lines next time.

I *just* joined this team, and am SO glad I did! I just started reading the OAS Blog and am now a follower! BTW, my name is Tracey. I was diagnosed with latex allergy when I was 13, after a childhood of constant stuffy nose, runny eyes, coughs, and a few instances of hives that no one knew what to attribute to.

I have medical problems that require me to use gloves on a daily basis, and on July 4, 1989, I was wearing a latex glove when my eyes started itching. When I took off the glove to rub my eye, I had hives all the way up to my elbow. My mom took me to the ER, and when my mom asked about possible latex allergy, the ER doctor said "I've never heard of anyone being allergic to latex." HA! Three months later I was having an operation and went into cardiac arrest several times on the table, and once in recovery. My surgeon, who had had this happen several times at this point, developed a blood test to test for latex allergy. When he tested me, he said I had the highest numbers he'd ever seen. Soon after this, it was determined that children born with Spina Bifida (which I was) are at a VERY high risk of developing an allergy to latex because of the high level of exposure.

Because of the severity of my latex allergy, I was told not to even TRY to eat bananas, avocados, kiwi, or chestnuts. Via the hard way, I've also learned to avoid tomatoes and potatoes except on rare occasions. I cannot eat in restaurants anymore because not only do I have to worry about what food I order, but I have to worry about whether or not the people preparing the food have been wearing latex gloves. If I eat something that has been touched by a latex glove, I will react.

Over the last few years, the list of potentially cross-reactive foods has done nothing but grow, and since I never seem to have a "small" allergy reaction, I'm becoming increasingly paranoid about the food I put in my mouth. I've always been a "picky" eater and won't eat foods that look or smell "funny" to me, or that have certain textures that feel weird in my mouth. However, in an effort to improve my health in the last few years, I have been trying to get past my "food phobias." I'm becoming convinced that all those "EW!" reactions me have been my body's way of telling me, "No! Do NOT put that food in your mouth! Bad things will happen!" EVERY time I've tried to push my way past a "phobia" of a food that my brain said, "No! Absolutely not," to, I've ended up with an upset stomach, diarrhea.... you all know the drill.

I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning new ways to eat healthy despite my food allergies.

I empathize with you. My personal diet has severe restrictions, as well. I avoid table salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, eggs, sulfites (cane and beet and grape sugars; most dark colored fruits etc… are sulfite laden foods), commercial pectins, citric acid, caffeine, alcohol, stimulants like the theobromine in chocolate or cocoa, and any preservatives derived from these foods. I have to totally avoid commercial foods regulated by lenient FDA GRAS laws: Generally Regarded As Safe. They claim that 1% of the population is known to be food allergic. I believe it is more like 30% or more, actually known, and many more with undetected allergies and intolerances that a doctor may have already labeled ‘something else. More than one traumatic doctor authorized event that challenged my immune system thus created a compound weakened immune result. I have been researching nutrients that help and heal. Glyconutrients are sugars of merit. Sugars scientifically called saccharides. They are in foods not typically identified as a sweet food. The human body needs them everyday. Cancer research has demonstrated that remission is possible through intakes of these elements of body care. Foods often possess these in sets called polysaccharides. Find the ones you may be missing in the foods you should not eat to discover the sweet alternatives in the foods you can or find the supplements from doctors or nutritionists to fill the voids in daily nutrition.

There has been some realistic research done in eight essential sugars. Only two of these saccharides sound familiar to you already like glucose and galactose. For example lactose of milk is a combination of glucose and galactose. These are in regular daily foods we are all familiar with. Should a person be lactose intolerant with the irregular traits of diarrhea or cramping then these other foods possess the polysaccharides necessary for good health: figs, grapes, peas, hazelnuts, many kinds of bean, (like navy, kidney, and garbanzo) and pectin. I understand the added frustrations of the remedy, shots, or alternate food choices as being just as bad as the original issue food. This is where I can feel it, too. From the list of no-no’s on my list (I avoid table salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, eggs, sulfites (cane, beet and grape sugars, any vinegar; etc… are sulfite laden foods), commercial pectins, citric acid, caffeine, alcohol, stimulants, and any preservatives derived from these foods.). Where does one begin to eat well without pain or paunch? This is where a specialist can assist you in getting what you need and may have been missing.

Here is a starting point. Get to know these friends that may hide in foods you can not have but may be available in a food or supplement you can have.1 Mannose; 2. Glucose, 3.Galactose; 4. Xylose, 5. Fucose, (not fructose if fruit sugars, this one has no “R” or “T”). The next ones have big names but the healing and good health powers will motivate you want to learn their names and the foods they reside in. 6. N-acetylglucosamine; 7. N-acetylgalactosamine. You may know these two as arthritis and joint drink supplements for relief of joint pain because it does help. Too much sucrose and fructose in the commercially advertised supplements can set up insulin resistance and fat around the hips so use it, sparingly? And the last big name with insufficient fame # 8. N-acetylneuraminic acid. Do not be mad at a doctor or nutritionist for not knowing about these nutrients and their properties. Cutting edge is yet to become common knowledge.

The treatment for Oral Allergy Syndrome is environmental allergy shots. This doesn't work for everyone, but the younger you are when you start the shots, the better the chance you'll be able to eat fresh fruits and vegetables again without a reaction. Talk to your allergist about this.

My husband had OAS as a kid--- reacting mostly to melon. Allergy shots took care of this for him. He now eats melon all the time. My daughter, who is 3 1/2, now has OAS-- reacting with hives to nuts, apple and watermelon (who knows if other fruits and veggies taste strange to her due to a lesser histamine reaction in the mouth). Her environmental allergies include ragweed and trees.

My daugher has already begun allergy shots per our allergist's suggestion. The doctor says it should take a full year of shots before she can eat fresh fruits and vegetables again. The weekly shots are a hassle, but I consider fresh fruits and veggie essential to a nutritious diet.

Good luck!

Hi, I am new to this and so glad to hear that I am not the only one with these type oh allergies. Mine started when I was about nine and just kept getting worse. By the time I hit grade 12 there was no long a fruit, veggie, or nut that I could eat. My reactions are so strong that I am afraid to dry dried fruits, although I can eat fruits and veggies when they are cooked to a baby food mush consistency. I really don't like the feeling of NOT being able to breath so I just avoid. My specialist told me that in his 25 years of practicing he has never seen anyone with the severity that I have:( Dietians look at me like I am crazy and no one seems to be able to give me any help when I ask for guidance for a healthy balanced diet. What do some of you others out there do??? I would love some insight and help in this matter from someone who fully understands! Glad to know that I am not alone. Thanks:)

Dried and canned seem to be fine. I have had a mild reaction to dried apples, though. It sounds like you shouldn't chance that one! I eat a lot of canned fruit, just watch out for extra sugar / calories in the syrup. I am hooked on dried cranberries and bananna chips :~)

I tried organic and had the same problem :( do you eat dried fruits or canned fruits? That's how I try to get some variety otherwise it's pretty much melons, grapes, oranges and some berries for fresh fruit for me that I can actually eat but that can get quite expensive in the off seasons.

I feel your pain!! I love apples, pears, ect! I don't know how to set it either.... would LOVE to know how!
Mine started after my oldest son was born, 14 years ago. I wondered if the two were related and had even tried organic fruits (thinking it might be a pesticide). I am glad to know what "it" is, but bummed that I can't enjoy some of my fav snacks / foods.

I have oral allergies too, I developed them as an adult and I understand from my allergist it is a tree nut allergy or birch allergy. So apples, peaches, pears, plums, almonds, hazelnuts (biggest allergy). It's important to be careful because it can be life threatening as mine are.

I find eating fruit such a challenge especially since I love all the stuff I am allergic to! Do you know if you can modify the menus in the nutrition tracker to always eliminate certain foods? Feel free to message me if you want to talk more about it.

Try cooking your food (e.g., applesauce). It will prevent symptoms in the majority of people. If not; just eat more of what you can still eat. Sounds like you can still eat a lot of fruits and almost all veggies.

I am so glad you posted this! I have been having these symptoms for years and never knew what it was called... Dr's just told me to stay away from foods that caused the symptoms. I don't have trouble with carrots, but snap-peas, apples, pears, kiwi and some tree nuts.
How do you substitute foods that you can eat for ones listed in a meal plan?

I have terrible OAS. Can't eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs and spices cooked or uncooked. Will get both local reactions (in my mouth) and systemic reactions. I'm still adjusting to my new diet but doing fairly well. How about you?

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

I have OAS and I was wondering if anyone else here had it. I don't know a whole lot about it, but I'd love to chat with someone who does! My allergy is mainly raw vegetables (carrots, celery, etc), fruits (apples, strawberries, blueberries), and nuts such as almonds. Most of the time if they are cooked or processed in some way, I can eat them. If anyone has information or a site I should visit, let me know!!



"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
