food allergies

Posted by EllieK on August 12, 2002 at 16:55:19:

How long after eliminating an offending food or foods should I begin to feel symptoms "clear?"

I did an Immunolabs IgG series and tested positive for reactions to 14 foods, including milk, eggs, soy, yeasts, mushrooms, and a number of other things mostly from the legume family. I have eliminated all of these for the past 4 days (including all legumes, all vinegars and fermented products, etc.), and so far I feel no different (except hungrier, since I haven't figured out, entirely, what else to eat!).

My symptoms are largely respiratory and also fatigue.

Any advice appreciated.

It would depend on how fast or slow your digestive system
was and how long that the things in the food got metabolized
and completely out of your system.

When I was food sensitive it could take 3-4 days for the
symptoms to go away which were maily stabing pains in the
head, eyes, ears, and jaw. I was only eating rice and a
little meat but after a while try other things and be back
in the soup. I was lucky and trying oatmeal got rid of the
pains in minutes after eating it a few times I could eat
anything. That was 12yrs ago and I often wondered what was
in the oatmeal that could have helped and I recently read
that it has Vit B-6 and that the liver needs it to function
and they said it like it was what makes the liver function.

Start with Primal Defense and some probiotics like NOWs' 4x6 acidophilus and some cabbage juice and look up the LGS diet here on the BB. And the LGS modified diet to !

Hi, EllieK.

IF you have been successful in TOTALLY eliminating whatever you are testing the average time is 3 1/2 days. To be sure that the benefits were not just a fluke, I would suggest waiting a week before testing to see if it will reproduce the symptoms.
