I've wondered for some time about sneezes and sneezing.  I'm intending to leave out of this discussion any sneezing that comes as part of a short-term illness such as a cold virus.

I first bought the ER4YT book from Wal-Mart in 1998 and pulled it back out in 2001 and went full compliance.  Since then I think a lot more about individual foods and environmental concerns so when I notice things I make more mental notes and try to associate anything I can imagine an association for.  Sometimes I'm just mistaken about associations.

Anyway, when I eat certain foods, especially avoids or many highly processed foods, within a minute to five minutes of that first bite I will get a single sneeze.  No runy nose, no virus or illness, just a sneeze, almost as if my body immediately recognizes something I shouldn't be putting in it and is slapping my hand by making me sneeze once.  It's more common when I've been very compliant and eat some avoids.

I'm a little suprised at being able to have such a quick reaction of recognition by the body since I'm a verified (saliva test and clear characteristics) non-secretor.

Anyone else notice this association and any comments as to how a non-secretor's body would pick up so quickly that something is an avoid and slap my hand with a sneeze?  Or am I just making things up that truly have no real connection?  I can say when I eat beneficials, and even good sources of neutrals there is never a sneeze.  Also, I don't think there's an environmental element as a confuser.  It happens in most any setting.

I love making connections so I'm curious if others have wondered about this.

I am the queen of sneezing, which makes me an object of teasing in my family. Most of it is environmentally related, but I do notice it with some avoid foods too, especially pepper. Just last night I had a sneezing fit when someone at the table close to me shook pepper all over their food. I've always been like that with pepper, makes sense that it's an avoid. What doesn't make sense to me is the onion thing, I tear up painfully every time I cut into one but it is not an avoid.

Either it doesn't happen to me, or it does and  I've never noticed it.  I voted "no".

I voted no because it doesn't happen to me, but it does to my husband.   He has sneezing fits but  rarely can figure out what food has caused it.

I never eat avoids, yet I sneeze if satisfied, for one....
something about the esophagus being triggered....
pepper and onions......think those can make anyone sneeze!!!
and I don t mean cooked.....

love sneezing in the morning....clears my head!


perhaps avoids might give me a sneeze attack, yet don t really care to try and investigate!!!

Mine is more of a morning issue than food issue.
Or if I'm not rested enough and start to early.
Anything in those two conditions triggers sneezing
for me. In the afternoons I'm good to go and sneeze
at nothing. Weird me thinks.

Its also interesting that the poll seems to suggest
that food has a very low impact on allergies.

When I sneeze, I sneeze 15 times then stop.  Can't remember what triggers it, but it is food, and I assume an avoid, but I'm thinking in either the spice or herb catagory.  It's been awhile, so I must have used it all up and replaced it with a diamond or SF.

Sneezing due to sunlight is an inherited trait.  Only 10% of people have it.  There actually is a name for it:

Autosomal Dominant Compelling Helio-Ophthalmic Outburst Syndrome, or ADCHOO  aka  photic sneeze reflex


Funny huh?!

Had an EEG (I think that's it) done years ago and part of the test is flashing bright lights.  I kept sneezing like crazy so they couldn't do the test.  Something to do with the reaction of the pupils.  I have abnormally large pupils btw.

SoulfulLori, that's so interesting.  My mother sneezes in multiples, often.  It's been a while that I've noticed it but my father used to always start counting once she started.  I never connected it to light so I'm not sure that was her issues.  She clearly has allergies but her Alzheimer's is so advanced at this point that it's hard to know what she does and doesn't do regularly.
