Hello fellow teachers!

Just wondering if any other teachers have sinus/mucous issues and if compliant cheese makes it worse?


Hi,
   When I gave up wheat, milk and cheddar cheese my stuffy nose was better but I never had a really bad stuffy nose. I eat a lot of other dairy products (gouda cheese, feta cheese, goat cheese, yoghurt, etc.) and they don't bother my nose.
My son is a teacher, too and he used to have a blocked nose a lot of the time. It was impossible for him to eat with his mouth closed. After giving up regular wheat  (we eat spelt) he doesn't get the stuffy nose. He was never a milk drinker.
He still eats cheeses (even cheddar sometimes).

I believe it was the wheat for both of us.

We save money on kleenexes on this diet.

Here is a question for you fellow Teachers.

I have had allergies for the last 10 years.  Never had them then we moved to another town and the allergies started about 2 years later.  These are very debilitating allergies and I've always had to get the steroid shot for ANY kind of relief.  I have been in the process of changing my diet for the past 2 years and this year was the first time I didn't have to get a shot.  My allergies were mild enough that I could stand them, without taking anything.  I have found that how I eat is related, but I still get allergies, when things are in bloom.  I know this is NOT common in Teachers, in fact its usually quite the opposite, since our bodies get along with everything. On the other hand, my chronic infections prove I'm a teacher. (along with SWAMI)

My question is do any other teachers get allergies??

Allergies are often a product of bad bacteria in the intestines.

As a non-secreter it is easy for your system to let foreign invaders in but then attack them. Minimizing things you have a problem with will help lower the reactions as you have come to experience. If your gut flora is well the reactions will be even less.

I don't have a SWAMI yet to confirm but my measurements say I am a Teacher and I am the poster child for allergies and asthma. You are not alone.

Yes, the levels seem to be in direct correlation to the toxin or trauma levels in the body...  My WW and DD both had allergy reactions growing until we started eating per BTD, they have receded to where they are almost non-existent now...

So your saying Candida? Makes sence.  

I have always reacted to Dairy and now I realize to Wheat also.  

Much better on GT/BTD.

Candida isn't the only bacteria that can be excessive in the gut...  Many other bacteria can grow out of control in the gut and cause digestion / absorption to shut down...

Interesting responses because I've had Candida for YEARS and for the past 3 years it has show up as yeast infections.  I have done the candida diet and still couldn't get rid of it.  Which is why I know there is no doubt in my mind I'm a teacher!!   "Can't we all just get along?"

Is the Candida a bacterial form or a fungal form?  If it is the bacterial form, it should be controllable with diet and probiotics...  

If it is the fungal form, the reason the body won't/can't kill it is due to excess toxicity.  Fungal candida will trap some toxins so they have less deleterious effect on the body.  If you attempt to kill the candida, it releases this junk, overloads the body and the body has to divert attention to protecting itself from these toxins, so the candida comes back, grabs the toxin load and the body is happy to have it...  The proper order is to detox the junk and allow the body to control the candida as the toxins leave.

Raingirl,
I had seasonal allergies as a kid. Just post nasal drip/cough in Spring and Autumn....never took anything for it. From about age 27 to my 40's the allergies worsened each season but over the counter meds helped. For the last 4 years I have had year round sneezing/stuffy/runnynose/coughing and now this year wheezing. I was  diagnosed with asthma this last February. I never smoked or had any severe upper respiratory infection growing up!
I have been eating about 50-75% blood type diet compliant for almost 2 years but now following teacher diet since March. I am 95% compliant and working on 100%! ( I eat tomatoes,red potatoes and black dot fruit sometimes!)
I know I have experienced some detox already and weight has come off without trying.

Bottom line: I still believe my environment contributes (ragweed, dust, pollen) to my allergies!

Candida is a Genus name for yeast, a type of fungus. Good bacterial flora in the gut, vagina and other locations in the body helps keep Candida under control, but when the good guys are gone, the Candida proliferates.

Detoxifying will allow the good guys to repopulate this in turn also helps the body with detox in and of itself and then the Candida should be under control.

Candida thrives in a sugary environment. When the good bacteria in the vagina for example, become compromised by antibiotics, this changes the pH of the vaginal ecology from slightly acidic to slightly basic and this also helps the Candida to thrive.

I ran the swamix once as a secretor and once as a nonnie, not much changed, some of the meats kicked up to diamond but the frequencies did not change. So, I eat the same way either way, when I eat the occasional lamb it's either neutral or it's diamond, same with everything else. I avoid the avoids for both, really they are much the same. Sooo, since I'm currently digging into my savings just to keep the bills paid, no reason for me to spend the $ on secretor satus.

I have never tried emu, but I tried ostrich once and it was delicious, too bad I can't find it any more.

It is frequent that Explorer women have issues with yeast infections.

Candida likes to inhabit the intestines but does not particularly show itself as being a predominate overgrowth candidate from what I have read.

You make the possibility of candida entering the intestine much easier if there is a bad environment that can allow damage to occur.

Grey rabbit,
We have an  ostrich farm a few miles from us. The local butcher/deli sells the fresh meat. One of the nicest restaurants in our area serves ostrich medalions ...my DH's favorite! He is an O/hunter and loves his meat, but he orders this alot!
I could find out if they ship and how much?

Yes.  I do know that Explorers commonly have yeast infections, however SWAMI figured me to be a teacher.  I have had bowel problems for years and years and have ALWAYS thought they were related to my yeast infections.  Doctors of course tell me that is not possible at all.  I never belived them and I still don't.  I can't wait until my diet starts kicking in (and I get better on track) I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.  I'm sure you all know that feeling!

Yeah well I am sure if your intestines are not in superb shape then it is easy for bacteria and yeast to freely pass. That happens to blood type O's but with gluten, after damage.

OK---I had tried this GF alfredo sauce packet once a long time ago, and happened across it when I went to a natural foods grocer to pick up the spelt tortillas.  I read the label and was very, very happy.  It, AND the Cheddar Cheese flavor had no icky red flags, and the main ingredient was nutritional yeast.  I'm kind of jazzed.  It's not perfect, but with even just a touch of messing, and brown rice pasta...I am loving it!  Weeks where I have a heavy school load...I need no-brainer stuff that I can make for dinner and pack for lunch.  Also, if you look on the website, they have in their info section a chart of common allergens.

Now, if they would only come up with a gluten-free mozzarella sauce...as their mozz flavor does have wheat.  I really miss fresh mozz!

Mozz is avoid on the Teacher list...is it OK if it's fresh?  I assumed that meant all mozz.

Maybe no mozzarella, but there sure is a loooong list of superfood and diamond cheeses for Teachers!!  

And how about pesto as a topping for your rice pasta?  Maybe with some good cheese grated on the top!  

The word around here is Tinkyada is the tastiest rice pasta.

Oh yum--thanks!  Will have to track down the Tinkyada.  I looooooove pesto, just have been crazy buzy, and that's why I was looking at mixes. I like to make pesto fresh, haven't found a good packet.  If anyone has a good one, let me know...but, if I'm caught on a few days with only 2 minutes for meals, the fresh basil goes to heck.

SO happy to be teacher and cheese it again.  I'll miss the cottage and mozz, but with gouda and brie and *shudder* GORGONZOLA AS A DIAMOND????  Oh yeah...and parm and romano????    

Actually, I have always wanted to make cheese...and I'd really be curious (during my school break   ) to work out what differentiates the benes from avoids in Teacher-Land so I could make some cheese.
