Hi all, has anyone ever heard of a poultry allergy.? My B non secretory son seems to be allergic to poultry. He says it makes his throat hurt and kind of swell up. One time when he was little, we made ground turkey chile, with beef bouillon addition and he said it hurt his throat. My husband and I could hardly tell any different.

He can tolerate chicken bouillon. As a B, chicken is an avoid. So not liking chicken makes sense. But, this limits his meats to beef, mostly. I am cooking fish, one night a week for dinner.  Also, do veal. And, I also try to get him to eat a little turkey bacon. He is very reluctant.

Does anyone know of a poultry allergy?  Any suggestions on getting him to tolerate turkey, which is a neutral?

Donna  Never heard of it but that is only two meats -- not sure why you see this as limiting?

  Here is a list of meats, why not try some bison and lamb as well?

I've not been able to find ground turkey without anything added to it.  Even the so-called "minimally processed" stuff that says "nothing artificial" still has natural flavoring, which could contain MSG or who knows what.  Then again, bouillon has got to be a thousand times worse.


Anyway, hope you get to the bottom of the issue.


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.

Yes, bison may be a way to go. I'm looking at cholesterol, but bison is very lean. He has just turned 21. So, my influence is tricky. But, I can have bison as a way to cut down his fat content.

Stopped buying soda for him, about a year ago.  At first, he wasn't drinking any and noticed his face was clearing up and his ache in his hip was better. he now drinks soda, but on his own. I do think he is drinking more water. Also, discouraging his reliance on fast food.

Andrea, I noticed that turkey, was marked "occasional" for B's, so his avoidance makes sense.

Ahhh, Square Peg, to get him off ramen noodles with chicken bouillon. Trying to correct years of bad eating habits.

I have been on the BTD for about a year. And now the Swami since December. There's no turning back.

Still curious about the poultry thing, and if anyone else has heard of it.  

Thanks, for your responses.

Yes.

I have seen estimates that up to 5% of people have a form of poultry allergy.

Yes, you can be allergic to anything.

There are also "energy sensitivities" that can be cleared using NAET, if you can find a good practitioner.  Also, pg. 58 in the book "Living Pain Free" by Dr. Devi Nambudripad, is a general balance described that can reduce sensitivities and increase energy.

you might first wish to address his gut ecosystem.....heal first, then try introducing turkey slowly ......a food log is a wise approach during the process

Commercially raised turkeys are heavily dosed with growth hormones.  You might try some organically raised turkey just to see if clean meat would have the same effect.

Sounds more like an intolerance then an allergy?

What's in that bouillon you're using? Most of those contain unhealthy additives such as MSG, corn syrup solids, etc. It's quite likely he reacted to the beef bouillon, rather than the ground turkey. Or he may have reacted to the additives in the turkey, or something else in that chili was bad for him.

It's also possible that he's specifically allergic to turkey. He gets a lectin response to chicken,  being a B, but that might be a more subtle reaction than his allergic response to turkey.

Since he's an adult, I'd educate him about healthy food choices and trust him to make his own choices. You can support him; you can buy and/or prepare foods that are good for his individuality. You can research healthy alternatives for him. You could even refuse to purchase unhealthy foods for him. But you can't control what he eats away from home or what he uses his own money to purchase and bring into the house.

If he wants the convenience of ramen noodles, then see if you can find some healthier versions out there. Maybe he'd give up on the ramen if he could always find cooked noodles in the fridge, ready to be microwaved. Or any healthy, ready-to-eat snack, for that matter. It may not have to be simple carbs.

I'd stop worrying about fat and cholesterol. Os and Bs really need to worry more about carbs than fat.

Donna - I'm pretty sure I am allergic to poultry. It gives me sinus headaches and post nasal drip and stomach problems. In fact, yesterday I ate a little homemade chicken salad and my pulse went up to 115, which made my chest hurt. I know from blood tests that I am allergic to eggs, and chicken feathers (and cigarette smoke) are my worst inhalants, so it's possible I'm allergic, or at least very sensitive, to poultry.

I agree.
I am not sure I understand why you want to reduce fat and cholesterol, they are not devils or  problems for most Bs

A variety of good protein combined with veggies, maybe real juice instead of soda.
Goo fats like whole fat organic dairy, the right nuts, oliveoil and butter/ ghee and you have the base of a good B diet.
Add the right grains, beans and fruit .

Hi. My husband is allergic to all birds. He cannot eat them or touch them 9or their feathers) without having a reaction. He is supposed to carry an epi-pen. I have had to take him to the ER on several occasions when he accidentally ingests poultry. It doesn't sound like your sons situation is as severe. We always ask about the content of food items in restaurants and make them aware of his allergy. Chicken broth is hidden in many things!

He can eat eggs though. He said it is because they are unfertilized.
