Hello, I am thinking of taking both food sensitivity and food allergy tests to see which foods are affecting my Psoriasis. However a person on my Psoriasis discussion forum who is under an allergist's care said:
"The problem is that they can be completely wrong like telling you have IgA anti-bodies for milk or egg. Any food you have eaten will have left anti-bodies in your body. According to my allergist that doesn't mean that is the food that you are having a negative reaction to"
So can you tell me why it would be of benefit to me to take these tests if the above statement is accurate please? Thanks, regards, Mike.
Sounds a lot like my journey. However the ppis are going to make your condition worse. My food intolerances were triggered by not enough stomach acid which is what heart burn really is. Try the gaps intro diet for a week and work your way back up the fodmaps. Get off the ppi's!!!! Start taking digestive enzymes and HCL betaine with every meal. Get on a really good probiotic and start eating fermented veggies. You'll eventually need to probably start taking psyllium husk to feed the probiotics..(see Bristol stool chart). Stay gluten, corn, etc free and check out the Wahl's diet as well. Variety in the diet is something not to be lost.oral tolerance can be increased but some foods you will never go back to...(food as fuel, not fun). Of all that doesn't work you may be dealing with mold....see the shoemaker protocol/symptoms. And get off the ppis!!!
I am looking for insight from anyone that may have insight on what is going on in my body. I have had 6 years of fuzzy head and GI issues (bloating, constipation, nausea, pain, discomfort). I cut out gluten 3 years ago. Then did a IgG mediated food allergy test with a holistic doctor and did a food elimination diet based on those results. So I now avoid dairy and corn on top of gluten. I also started following a low fodmap diet a few months ago due to still not feeling great and when I follow all of these things (gluten free, dairy free, corn free, low fodmap) I feel the best I ever have, although it is very hard to sustain. Also, i still have random spouts of horrible heart burn an d nausea occasionally and cannot pinpoint it. I also am on a PPI for this. I have had a hydrogen breath test in 2015 and it was negative. I also have had multiple EGD's and Colonoscopies that have been unrevealing besides a stomach ulcer which is now healed and some esophagus irritation most recently. I am now scared of eating so many foods because I have had so many days of not feeling right. I have considered getting more strict on the corn restriction or maybe considering nightshade free because I am not sure what to do/if Fodmap is really helping since it isnt all the time. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated!
Thanks in advanced,
Yoghurt is difficult to assess because yoghurts are quite varied in their consitency. So far as I can tell, yoghurts don't work for me at all, which does not bother me too much since I don't much like them. I only kept trying them because they are supposed to be very healthy and are probiotics. After the fourth disaster, I have crossed them off my list and I don't greatly miss them. It is true anyway that each individual is different conerning what they can or cannot eat but I think that is especially true so for as yoghurt is concerned.
I am not sure that vanilla yogurt in any which way would lead to histamine allergies. But I know that histamine allergy is so to easy to catch, one might not easily find out as to what exactly is leading to this.
Check out this detailed article, which summarises all those foods that you should consume to fight hives and allergies.

Hello! Several of my friends are either gluten or lactose intolerant..and I am forever looking up what they can / can't eat. I'm actually working for a start up and we working on a way to help people with food intolerances or dietary requirements find out what's in their food, see how healthy it is and then connect you to healthier products. Does anyone use anything similar or have ideas on the above? I would love to get your thoughts. If you have 5 mins would be very grateful if you could complete this survey!
After having dental work done my dentist gave me a prescription for a special toothpaste, Duraphat,
after a few weeks of use i started getting serious stomach pains and diarrhea, i had to write down changes in
my diet or anything different used. I had a look at the ingredients label on the toothpaste as i know i cannot
tolerate sorbitol at all, the 3rd ingredient was liquid sorbitol !! surprise surprise, i stopped using it and withing 4 days
the symptoms were significantly reduced.
Sorbitol is a sugar substitute and is used by the food industry as sweetener and wetting agent (humectant), but can also be present naturally (dried fruit). Sorbitol intolerance and fructose malabsorption are often interlinked.
That pretty much sums me up!
What are the symptoms of histamine intolerance and what organs can be affected? What symptoms have been reported by people who suffer from histamine intolerance?
Hi - just joined and my first post is to give info not ask for it!
I found this helpful, having the same question. I checked my Sainsburys Greek to find it has one from each category, harmful, beneficial and neutral. I'm eating it just fine but my food issues are not serious.
Probiotics that Increase Histamine
As mentioned previously, there are a variety of bacteria that can produce histamine and some of these species are commonly found in the most popular and widely used probiotic supplements or probiotic foods. If one has high histamine, it would be best to avoid probiotics that contain these.
The following bacteria degrade histamine, so they can be used to help lower one’s histamine level. However, do be aware that bifidus can be a bully sometimes too and can try to take over and become overgrown as well, if lactobacillus is not present in sufficient amounts.
Some soil based organisms
The following bacteria are neutral
Lactobacillus rhamnosus (down-regulates histamine receptors and up-regulates anti-inflammatory agents)
Hi I was lactose intolerant for 3yrs, until my mum passed away and I stayed in her house for a week. The lactose intolerance all but went while we were there. My husband was diabetic so every drink yoghurt etc in our house had artificial sweeteners in it.
If I drink normal coke all day then I can have dairy and I am fine.
If I have diet coke then I am fine until I eat dairy, then the bloating and wind starts and I am running to the toilet. I have Lactase tablets that help a bit if I accidentally have artificial sweetener other than that I always have Imodium in my bag as a last resort.
Is there anyone else out there got the same problem?
is FODMAP ok for GLuten, Lactose and Fructose intolerances?
Can anyone here suggest some low carb recipes? It would be nice if you could share some chicken recipes which wouldn’t cause any food allergies. I had undergone a lap band surgery from a clinic in Richmond Hill (
)on Feb 1. The procedure was successful. I was looking for some diet suggestions after this procedure and found this group very interesting. Looking forward to tasty recipes.
It is very hard to choose the correct diet plan when you have multiple food allergies. In my case, this task was even more difficult because I'm overweight as well and I sought the help of an expert to get knowledgeable advice on diet and weight management (
). I think getting the help from such servicers will help you to choose the exact and complete diet for you. Here is a link for people with food intolerance which help you to prepare delicious dishes. hope this will help you all. Thank you.
Since my last post I twice had yoghurt again. Once following recommendations from a dietician I took alvita or some special (or specially marketed) more expensive yoghurt from Danone. Diorrhea and bad D till I stopped. Recently a last try with a "mild" "Greek style" natural yoghurt-that was yesterday. Awful D. today, so it looks very much as though yoghurt is a no no for some people with histamin issues. But jury still out on it, could it be that it is not histamin but some other issue, maybe SIBO??
A last point: I am always frustrated by the amount of times I read "get a diagnosis from your doctor" or "dont try this diet before you know you have xyz". I have been running from doctor to specialist to doctor. None can or will give me a final diagnosis. The only thing which all professional practitioners are unfailingly comeptent at is billing.
Hi. I would like to share some healthy recipe which is recommended by naturopathic doctors in Mississauga.
I have tried the protein smoothie, South American salad, orange glazed salmon and the berry smoothie. They are just yummy. You should also give it a try.
Last week I had tried a fructose free dessert with apple and cinnamon. It is delicious. Hereby I'm sharing the recipe of the same.
2lbs chopped apple, 2tsp of Cinnamon, Juice of one lemon
How to prepare:
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Toss all the ingredients and place in a baking dish. Cook apple for about 30 minutes. Yummy desert is ready. Serve warm.
