I was going to start a thread about dairy allergies and ghee, but I'll just post here instead.  Here's my question:

Is there anybody actually here on the boards (meaning, not just in theory) that knows they're allergic/intolerant to dairy but who can still do ghee without any trouble?  We've taken our 4 y.o. completely off dairy, but I'm unsure whether she can still have ghee or not.  I'm tempted to give it to her, but I wanted to hear from somebody not just in theory who can eat ghee but no other dairy at all.

As an O nonnie, I tolerate butter and ghee just fine. I discovered that I didn't do well on any dairy long before finding BTD, and so was including a lot of "avoids" in my diet. Even then, butter didn't mess with me the way heavy cream did.

I don't think I have a true allergy to dairy, though, as I'm now able to tolerate a little cheese (all SWAMI beneficials) without undue problems. IIRC, you thought your child was a B when you had her on dairy, right? So when you took her off dairy, you were putting her on the proper BTD for the first time. Ghee is fine for O nonnies and any genotype Os can be.

Argh I wish I could agree. I tried it and cannot stand the taste or smell of ghee. And of course it's a superfood for me.
However, I do take butter oil caps. That I can tolerate


Have you tried making your own? Did you check the date on the butter? Can't stand it made from salted butter. I use organic sweet butter, and I love it. And so does my stomach!

Everyone in my family is lactose intolerant, and, in fact, we absolutely cannot digest anything to do with beef whatsoever except a few cheeses and only then with a good dose of lactase. But ghee does not bother me in the least - in fact, it has been a life saver for my stomach after I had the nightmare experience with Clorox. There were very few things that were soothing to my stomach, but ghee was one of them. It was worth its weight in gold. I even have scar tissue in my esophagus from the Clorox fumes, but during the time it was so painful, the ghee helped me tremendously. So I think we can safely say that Dr. D. is right about ghee!!
