Being eaten up by an allergy today, but daily pollen count only says mold is around and mold is "low"..

Has anyone ever had an allergy where you felt like the pollen sticks to the GUMS of your teeth and makes them ache and itch and burn??? This is what always happens to me to let me know something has just blown in on the air! But I don't know why it has to be my GUMS......

Will look for a yeast infection protocol or something.....I dunno this is that "special time of the month" and I think it is both shocking and interesting to read that one woman was even allergic to her own PROGESTERONE and has made a website for awareness of progesterone reactions.....https://www.facebook.com/lori.cody.35

It's probably yeast......bit and swallowed my first caplet of stinging nettle 10 minutes ago and I can already feel some subsiding....I get a headache with this allergy, always....but "feeling like you're in your right mind" again is priceless while you're healing....these allergies are like swarms of bees that follow you and sting you when you haven't even gone looking for them or done them any wrong!

Has anyone EVER HAD AN ALLERGIC reaction to someone in their household cooking WHITE POTATOES AND PORK? It's going on right now as my blood type A mother is in one of her "moods" and is cooking up a storm! Please respond!

My DD and I both respond negatively to some smells in the air, whether it be from cooking or some other things...  

DD has reaction to tomatoes and tomato sauces...

I react to corn syrup and items with a combination of fat and corn...

The best I can say is to increase the distance from the source of the irritant...

The vibe I get from the aroma of pork cooking is a weird, angry fear response. In the throat, chest and adrenals. A "feral" sort of feeling that I'd want to shake out of me.  I ate it in the past and simply discarded this reaction as irrational. But when I read Dr. D's description of pigs as toxic animals, it made perfect sense.

Well thanks, y'all -- all I could do was open up the 2 windows in my room to let the icy January air blow in, cause I was coughing and hacking, and I was okay after a while. I do admit I have to do some serious yeast killing this month. The yeast seems to partner with the allergens and vice-versa, giving an allergic - like response. My spat-out listerine came out just as bubbly as champagne today....EWWWWW!!!

Okay Explorers...I think DoS was right about the yeast issue. Been using stinging nettles to attack the yeast wherever it is. Here I am sitting in my home in the dead of winter with no flu, but after making a powerful diamond meal in addition to this last night......I wake up to a massive headache and sinus that disspiates with lots of water and more stinging nettles, but turns into burning, itchy eyes for 2 hours. I've noticed the nettles have stopped any tendency towards bulimia in its tracks too. Now I don't have to go buying Maca or anything else, or guess that this is a hormonal thing anymore. I guess it's time to explore "bringing in the gut flora army " and continuing with the nettles for the next 6 weeks.....oh yeast how I hate you!!! This yeast will fight me and fight me losing weight unless I make it die. The yeast also makes me want to go back to bed when I need to work my job.

I was just wondering tho, since it's not recommended to have oregano oil, if I could/should drink some oregano tea occasionally?

Seraffa,
Off and on I get burning, itchy eyes   ...never thought of it being connected to a possible yeast reaction...will have to pay attention to that.

Not sure about oregano tea, but I do often use the herb liberally on food.  Chamomile tea?

Hi guys I have a question...I've been doing the explorer diet for a few weeks now (after doing the hunter diet for two years...therefore LOTS of avoids unfortunately). My skin has cleared up and is slowly healing and I feel pretty good. I even had to stop taking my B complex!
My question is in regards to joint pain. I've been eating mostly super foods and lots of diamonds (pinto beans and brown rice is my favorite food! So I'm very happy with the explorer diet). My fingers have been hurting terribly, to the point where I thought I had broken my middle finger last week! Now that my right hand and shoulder are hurting badly too I know it's more of an inflammation thing. I can't even open any bottle caps or even lift up a gallon of milk. I'm not eating avoids so I'm guessing it has to do with detoxing? I'm in SO much pain. Any suggestions? I'm breastfeeding so I can't do any heavy detoxing.

Reduce the ratio of beneficial foods to neutral foods.  The Beneficial foods are "healing", where neutral are food value.  When you reduce the ratio of beneficial foods, the healing will slow down some so you should be in less pain.  Unfortunately, when I try to do this too much, the body starts asking for more more beneficial nutrients which is hurting in a different way.  You may have to work with this some to find the best balanced point for you...  The balance point may also vary, though so it may be more frustrating than the pain is...

So you think the pain is a "good" sign then? My middle finger is not hurting so much today...it hurt for about two weeks. Today it's my right hand and right shoulder where I have an old injury. It's KILLING me. I guess I am so afraid of doing the wrong diet again. I'm an all or nothing type person so I took the hunter diet to heart for so long. I literally aged ten years if you look at me. Makes me so mad at myself. I hope I can heal quickly...but like you said I might take it down a notch and see...maybe no more beans and rice for every meal!

I went through a rough patch as well for the past two months with joint pain and inflammation and was aware that my hormones were all over the place and my diet had not changed. The hormone stuff has settled down and no more pain.

When it was at its worse, I would take 2 Tbs flax oil daily, one in the afternoon and then at bedtime. If I forgot, then it was 2 at bedtime.

When I talked to a friend of mine who is older than I am, she says that it can still happen to her at times and she is in her 70's! You get this weird burning in part of your lymph system....70% of our immune system is wrapped up in our "gut".

Oh cool...I started taking 2 tb of flaxseed oil a day about a week ago. The funny thing was that after quitting so much butter, my baby stopped sleeping through the night, and now wakes up 3-4 times! I figured I better find some beneficial fat ASAP! He slept though the night two nights ago and only woke up twice last night. I was thinking of maybe doing 1 tb flax and 1 tb olive oil? Since it heals the liver I've read. I might try that today.

I've found that if I have pain in old injury locations when I know my diet is very good, it is indicating that healing is happening in those places.  It can take time depending on what has to heal, but it is worth it.

Ok good...that makes the pain more bearable! I hadn't had pain in that shoulder since I gave up wheat two years ago!

Unfortunately because I no longer have a gallbladder, olive oil just repeats on me and my digestion gets sluggish and so I take Dr. D's Hepatiguard for my liver. Flax oil makes everything in my body relax, it's like what I imagine taking a sedative would be like and absolutely no problem with constant burping! It would be good for sure for you to have one Tbs of each. Interesting about your baby's sleep pattern and butter isn't it?

I need to get me some of that! Gotta get fortified for allergy season. I usually start in February. Great reminder and also, Amazone(Isa) recommends a boswellia product that has superb results.
I'm going to give that a try as well.

I didn't do too well on the Explorer diet, either.  But then I tried SWAMI, and that cut out a lot of the problem foods, such as dairy.  If BTD worked for you, perhaps you should stick to it until you can afford SWAMI.
In case you missed it the first time....



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
