See my post above. If you are healing, you should have fewer food sensitivities, not more. If you are not healing, something else is going on that you have not fixed. Have you been checked for parasites? Check with your MD, but then check with a naturopath, as well. By parasites I mean virus, bacteria, yeasts, or multi-celled organisms(worms). MD's usually only check for the latter and turn their noses up at the suggestion of a yeast problem (at least that was my experience). Have you tried probiotics? By that, I mean beneficial bacteria supplements, particularly soil-based organisms.
I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. Irritable bowel syndrome means basically that the MD doesn't know what causes the symptoms, so he gives it a name. That makes him feel better. I began following ER4YT and discovered that a good deal of my problem was caused by food - wheat, dairy, and beets were particularly problemmatic. I was feeling better, but my gut still hurt. Then I began to supplement with probiotics, particularly the brand I mentioned above. Now I can say that I no longer have the "irritable bowel syndrome". I might get an occasional bout when I eat the wrong thing or catch a virus, but the gas, cramping, diarrhea, weight loss, depression, are not a constant occurrance and worry. The change was so dramatic that I attribute it to the probiotics.
