Seasonal Allergies and Dairy – A Horrible Combination

Sometimes I wonder how the hell it took me so long to connect these two dots.

Since I made the “discovery” I have been virtually allergy symptom free (I can still feel a faint tingling on days where the pollen count is really high). From late April / early May through June (and again in the Fall), I would suffer along with the rest of you. Sneezing, itchy eyes, coughing, runny nose … you get the picture.

Last spring, I noticed that shortly after eating a bowl of cereal, the on switch for my allergies got flipped, and a light went off, along with a really bad allergic episode. I started my not-so-clinical-trial with me as the guinea pig. NO MORE CEREAL.

That lasted a day, but luckily I logged the foods that I ate for breakfast the next day. On my list that morning was a blueberry yoghurt. Now I had dairy in my sights.

The following day, I left out all dairy, and that is way harder than it sounds. Apparently dairy is in everything. Donuts, some types of canned tuna fish, and even some types of chewing gum – I’m dead serious.

After consulting professor Google, I found a good list of foods that people who are allergic to milk have to avoid. Note: I do not have a milk allergy, and am not lactose intolerance.

Apparently, the protein responsible for my condition is caesin. It is most commonly used as sodium caseinate, and wreaks havoc with my immune system (during allergy season only though).

Once I adhered to a strict diet eliminating these products, my allergies went away completely … overnight!

 

Some things I wonder about now:
  • Is this a recent problem due to GM animals and foods?
  • Why did my doctor  never even mention this as a possibility after all these years?
  • Is there really a "food conspiracy" in this country?

 

Now that the spring allergy season is over, I resumed my normal diet with no adverse effects, well, none other than the standard ‘this-processed-food-will-kill-ya’ foods.

That being said, I watched ‘Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead’ with my wife the other night, and will give the raw green juice deal a try for a few days. If anything, it falls in line with my non allergy aggravating foods. I can’t promise regular updates though 😉

    Currently it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    You shouldn’t buy a game if you are not sure whether you are going to like it.
    When you are building villages in the Clash of Clans, we would strongly recommend you to use the basics of urban planning in order to build a tightly spaced property.
    The majority of games include audio sections in their menus.

    Mostpeople don’t realize that lack of oxygen is not only the

    cause of herpessimplex but is also the cause of all most diseases.

    Plant medicine contains certified organic medicinal plant extracts

    and antiviral essential oils. Nowadays, several people suffer from food poisoning which is caused

    due to the attack of Giardia, an amoeba that hampers

    functioning of digestive system.
