Thank you for all of the great information!
I am a military veteran and my care is 100% through the VA...
Not always easy to get stuff done. I have an appointment in May and have had a consult in with the allergy clinic for nearly a year :(
Yes...it is that difficult to get in. Ugh!
I will see what I can find out on my own.
Again...thank you!!

Mom2, my suggestion is that you find a doctor who will give you the ELISA sensitivity test and will work with you to devise a diet that will (in many cases) actually heal you of a lot of your food sensitivities. Sometimes the body just needs a long-term break from certain foods to get it to settle down from its inflammatory responses. But, in my strong opinion it is best to do this test with a doctor (most likely it would be a naturopath) to get an expert's help to interpret the test results to your best advantage. The ELISA test is way better than those skin prick tests that often give wrong results and don't actually help a person to GET OVER their sensitivities.

It is expensive, I have to warn you. But it is truly worth it; it's your health. If your body keeps experiencing inflammation without breaks it can get much worse. The ELISA test will detect foods that are causing inflammation that you aren't aware of...yet. One culprit food will make another culprit food cause stronger reaction.

I hope this helps.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

It is the same reaction that I get with any type of nuts....
Itchy lips, throat swelling, etc.
Not fun :(
I never had allergies growing up, these are adult onset and they are gradually getting worse. My hands itch just from touching something that had nuts or coconut on it.
That is just the beginning of the list.
It stinks :(

That's unfortunate. for sure. I guess you really have to keep an eye on labels.... what type of reaction do you get?

I have got to figure out the oil thing...
I do use EVOO, and it seems like EVERYTHING has coconut oil in it lately.
Unfortunately, I am allergic to all things coconut.
Anyone else have any suggestions for the girl with too many allergies to name?!

Thanks for posting this Laura!!
I use the same oils you mention and agree with what you have said about vegetable oils. Sometimes I do use a small amount of different organic, cold-pressed oils in some special food preparation applications. They are in no way a regular part of my diet.

Here's another great article about oils:

Another exclusively EVOO and coconut oil user here, although I also use homemade cultured butter at the table, and lard and tallow on occasion.

Mmmm I gotta say it, I am a total coconut oil convert. I don't use anything other than CO minus olive oil and I only use that room temp.

Good article, thanks!

Canola, vegetable oils... they all do the same thing. High heat causes them to basically go rancid, and even body temp is enough to cause oxidization. These "healthy" oils will clog your arteries.
Also, how much processing do you think is necessary to get OIL out of a PLANT or a VEGETABLE???
Also, most of these oils are genetically modified.

Scroll down to the article on "Is Canola Oil Healthy?"
