Unexpected results of a food sensitivity test

Saturday, July 12, 2014


Severe intolerances to these foods:
carob emoticon, onions emoticon emoticon, peanuts emoticon, string beans emoticon emoticon, tapioca emoticon, vanilla emoticon (avoid all of these for 6 months)

I eat these regularly except for carob. I have been having tapioca for the last couple of weeks. I don't eat string beans often but if they are offered I take them. I thought they would be healthy for me.

The doctor said these would definitely cause inflammation in my body.

Moderate intolerance:
(avoid for 6 months)
barley, blk/green tea emoticon !, cherry emoticon , cucumber emoticon ,
grapefruit emoticon , honeydew melon, lime, mussels, mustard emoticon , pear, sweet potato and white potato emoticon

Mild intolerance;

Then there is a long list of foods that are perfectly OK.

    It's good that you know what to avoid, even though so much of it would ordinarily be considered "healthy" food. How does this fit in with Dr. Fuhrman's diet? Will you still be able to follow his plan, or are you going to have to start from ground zero? emoticon

    Concentrate on what you can have, and find ways to make it delicious and satisfying. emoticon

    I agree, useful and powerful info to have! I'm sorry to hear that some of your favs are nixed. I'm in the same boat.
    I knew I had a gluten intolerance for the past 12 years, but am suffering from so much inflammation myself, that my naturopath doctor suggested I take another round of tests.
    Sooo many foods I regularly ate were now no good for me (dairy, broccoli, peppers, all red meat, flax, tofu and soy, etc.).
    Amazing how the body will just say 'no more!' sometimes!
    I'm also convinced that once my swelling and inflammation get under control, my body will probably back off from torturing me on those new food sensitivities.
    Perhaps our bodies will reset at some point? Yes! I believe it!

    Thanks for sharing,

    So waters still ok?

    Looks like the list I got. I LOVE LOVE LOVE rice and it was one of my highest allergy foods along with malt, barley, and rye.

    Glad you have a list of WHAT TO EAT as well! Good luck! Never knew you could be sensitive to turmeric! That is an anti-inflammatory spice!

    What kind of Dr and test did you have that gave you such a detailed list of foods? As I keep wondering what I am missing as why I don't have as much energy as I should. That is big list of foods. I would have to write the list out and figure out items to eat in place of them. Then put up a calendar and mark off the days until I can have some of them back. I so do miss not being able to handle gluten and dairy in my life but it has 16 months and I do feel so much better.... I do have to remind myself of the much better part still though. emoticon

    I just double checked to make sure what tapioca was made out of but in place of potatoes you could try yucca.

    Please assure me this is separate from fibro.

    The only restrictions the specialist put on me were P words: no pizza, pasta or peas. There is a fourth P but the memory is a bit weak right now.
