I tried mozzarella cheese last night.  It was really yummy.  I'm allergic to dairy, but I thought since it's a neutral, I'd try it.  I haven't deliberately had dairy in 2 1/2 years (since I started the BTD), except ghee, which my stomach is fine with.  So far, I am very happy to announce, I have had no reaction whatsoever.  If I am healed of my dairy allergy, I have only the Blood Type Diet to thank.

MM, my B husband used to have a dairy allergy too.  His disappeared way before mine did (if it indeed has).  I'd expect a B to recover faster than an A.  So here's hoping that everybody's stomachs learn to be more tolerant!

36 hours and counting.  No problems.  I expected to at least have some gas, so great was my reaction in the past.  Nothing at all so far, and I think I would have had a problem by now if I was going to.  By tonight I'll officially consider myself healed of my dairy allergy, which is absolutely amazing.

Oh, I am hoping mine goes too!!!  I can't even tolerate ghee.   But I will try again in a month or so.  In the meantime, I am enjoying the sheep cheese and some goat too.  I only have problems with cow.

Great news!  Makes me even more hopeful!

That is great news!

I don't have an allergy to dairy (ie. no bloating/gas), but when I eat neutral dairy over a period of a few days, my immune system is compromised and I get sick (I find dairy creates aloth of mucus).

What kind of allergy do you have. What are your reactions.

I'm doing fine with the new dairy I can have on the genotype diet.  I'm sticking to the superfoods for now.  No gas or bloating, no itch in my throat, no moodiness, etc.  Might be a different story with other dairy, but it's very interesting.

Lactose Intolerance can be overcome too, in my case gluten was causing it (it can damage the cells that produce lactase in the small intestines).  Improving intestinal health is possible, and can make a difference in it.  I was only lactose intolerant until after being gluten free for about 4 months.

Any white lines or low ridges on your fingerprints?

Be careful.  You may still be allergic, but after so long of not having it, you could tolerate this amount.
Maybe if you have it often, you will get the symptoms again.
So, I would eat in moderation or whatever the GT says.

... I can't even tolerate ghee. .


  oh poor you!!!  I really feel for ya....I would be heartbroken if I had to give up my ghee! Hopefully things will improve for you and you can have it.
All of my dairy related problems went away after giving it up. I can cheat maybe once or twice, but beyond that, I'm asking for trouble. Milk and cream seem to be the two biggest offenders. Of course if I have that, it's usually not organic, so it could very well be the hormones, etc and not the milk itself. My brother is highly intolerant of milk. Makes him sick, as in sinus and head stuff, within 24 hours!

This is what happens to me. I can have dairy once in a while, but if I have it 2 days in a row, I get the symptoms - even with quark which is supposed to be superbeneficial for me on the gatherer diet.

Finally!  Got the computer fixed and I can post again!

Yes, I realize I should be careful, and I'm already beginning to think it's not a good idea to have it often....not so much because of symptoms, but because I'm beginning to crave it.  I'm beginning to find myself, unhungry, standing in front of the open fridge multiple times a day thinking, "The only thing I want is cheese."  I shut the door and get some dried apricots instead (but who wants apricots when they can have cheese?!).

My symptoms used to be just gas.  Then when I went off dairy about 8 years ago, and tried it again months later, and within 24 hours I would have to run to the bathroom muy rapido and it all came  blowing out.  Well, every time I accidentally had some dairy, the same thing would happen.  Over the years, it got worse and worse, till it was to the point where the abdominal cramping was so intense when I was sitting on the potty , it was like labor pains.  And I know labor pains...(three unmedicated home births)...and diary was like labor.  I told my husband, "Never, never, allow me to eat dairy again even if I beg you." (Not that it's up to him.)  I wouldn't even eat at a restaurant where I thought there was a remote possibility of there being butter in the rice.  And then came the time we ate at an Indian restaurant and there were white chunks in a great-looking curry.  I thought they were potatoes (this is pre-BTD), but evidentally it was some sort of cheese.  Threw me off 'cause it wasn't stretchy.  The next morning I couldn't get out of bed because I was so dizzy.  I stayed dizzy and nauseated the entire day, too dizzy to hardly even sit up--I'd fall over.  It was really annoying.  So about 12 hours later I suddenly had to go to the bathroom.  It blew out , and when I went to stand up I braced myself because I'd been bracing myself all day because of the dizziness.  I stood up (tired!  ) and wasn't dizzy!  The moment the dairy left my body, the dizziness vanished.  Anyway, it got to the point where I was afraid of it.  

But now, there's no problem.  I haven't had any dairy since I started BTD.  So was it the diet that healed me, or the very recent (couple of weeks) addition of ghee?

Ok Ribbit, step away from the fridge. Just kidding, glad to hear that you are able to tolerate cheese again.

As a Teacher, certain cheeses are superfoods now. I thought to myself,"cool, cheese that heals". I am not allergic to dairy, but I know it makes me gain weight and makes my joints hurt, and give me zits. I bought some provolone, and colby and have been eating small amounts on my salads. My tummy doesn't mind them, but my face is breaking out and my wrist joint keeps locking up, so.... I guess I am going dairy free again.

I think I will stick with yogurt and kefir for my gut repairing cultured foods. Oh, and ghee of course.

Oh, dear.  My skin looks terrible.  I thought it was because I made a big pot of chili last week and had tomatoes two days in a row (I'm not as sensitive to tomatoes as I am to the other nightshades--the others make my skin break out "somethin' fierce" [as my Grandfather would say]), but maybe it's the cheese.  *sigh*  I guess I'll enjoy it once or twice more and then lay off again.  

I'm hoping tonight my husband will have time to measure me so I'll know what my GT is.  Then I can switch to good cheeses and see if my skin is still awful or if it gets better.

Ribbit, doesn't it 'stink' that at our ages (you are much younger than me), that we still break out? Argh!!!!

I am off dairy again. I did not particularly "miss" cheese, but the colby I did have was pretty tasty. Oh well....

It's awful.  I've had gross skin since I was about 10.  My mother kept telling me, "It's just hormones, and it'll go away when you're 18-20."  Well, I watched as my two older brothers' skin cleared up.  Mine stayed the same.  I watched as my younger sister's skin (also type A) went from perfect to slightly imperfect back to perfect.  I watched as my youngest brother's skin followed the same pattern.  Only I, as an adult, have skin like a 14 year old's.  It cleared up for the first time in my life when I went on the BTD.  Then it came back.  Then a couple of months ago I went on a no-carb diet, hoping to kill some Candida, if that's what I've got, and my skin began to look pretty good, but I had to quit that diet because I became very, very tired and had trouble making milk.  Nursing a baby isn't the time to play with your diet, though I do plan on switching to the GTD as soon as I find out what I am.

Question: could my sudden Candida resurgence (and concurrent skin outbreak) be related to my reintroduction of dairy?

Have you changed anything else in your diet since the resurgence?

Yes - here is a quote from W. Crooks's book, 'The Yeast Connection': "In this office we restrict milk because of the lactose content as well as the presence of molds. Candida albicans may not be able to ferment lactose, but in individuals who break the lactose down into glucose and fructose, yeasts thrive on both of these sugars. There are approximately 12 grams of lactose in every eight ounces of milk and I hardly see the rationale for permitting candida patients to use milk in their diets" (p. 71)

But I'm not drinking milk.  I thought cheese was pretty much lactose-free.  I haven't changed anything else in my diet.  I'm getting even less sleep than I was, which was very little to begin with, and I know you heal during your sleep....maybe it's a miracle I'm doing as well as I am.  The baby finally fell asleep at 12:30 pm, and my 2 1/2 y.o. was up at 5:30 fussing for breakfast.  And that was with waking up to nurse 4 times.  I fed the children breakfast and went back to bed for half an hour.  No wonder I don't get better.  My body's too tired to do anything more than make milk and type messages.
