I used too much.  I was making myself some soup and I put a bay leaf in there.  Had about 7 or 8 leafs on it.  I didn't eat it, I took it out.   Well, my nose kind of burns and my throat too.  Seems like it might have cleared up my sinuses some, but almost seems like too much.  On my allergy test, I was supposed to not have any allergy to it.

Is it possible that I just used too much????

Wow. I use 3 or 4 in a pot to make a gallon+ of something.  

No wonder your throat burns.

That's what I was thinking, but wanted to make sure.  I feel fine now though.  Hopefully I won't get any real bad side affects.  

The flavor is fabulous though!!!!!!!!

I feel kind of silly now, but I guess that'show you learns sometimes.  hehehehehhe

I routinely use that many bay leaves.  I like the flavor.  

I hate to tell you, though, sometimes those allergy tests can give you false positives or false negatives.  Rob and Elizabeth both had ELIZA done and some of the indications were spot-on, but some of them seemed way off.  Even when they ate a food that they were "extremely" allergic to, there was no reaction.  That's not true for every one, but it was true for two or three foods on each of their list.  Other foods weren't listed as being a problem, but they most certainly were.

Well, you might be right.  I used to eat onions regularly and they were a 2+ IGg.  The blood reaction kind.  Not the classic kind.  So I had to avoid them for 3 months.  I always thought they gave me energy.  Problem is, I've felt better in these last 3 months than I did before I had that test done and followed the recommendations.  But, that's also right about when I started the Teacher diet.  So, I have no clue. Whatever I'm doing, seems to be working.  And same with Jack, my son.  But yeah, I don't doubt that they're not perfect.  We just have to listen to our body.  I'm slowly putting onions back in.  Small bits at a time.  I'm trying to see if they're going to mess with me or not.  And to be honest, I haven't really missed them.  Leeks are a very good substitute. Plus I still eat garlic and it's kind of similar.  Sort of.

I love leeks.  They're a nice "filler" in stir fries.

I haven't done a stir fry in a while.  I need a wok.  In know it's not completely necessary, but you know, right tool for the right job.

A wok is wonderful.  We got one as a wedding gift and I use it a lot.

Several thoughts for this thread...

I've only used a maximum of two bay leaves in anything I cook, so it may be too much or a combination of to much that triggered an allergy.  Once triggered, if you use a small amount of the same item again soon, you may get a similar (or more intense) reaction...

The only allergy tests that I have found reliable are energy tests...  The others always seem to be errant for me.

Allergy elimination can be done by a proficient NAET practitioner.
