Hope you're feeling better by now!
Migraines can be very scary!
Our oldest son has gotten them since he was young, from stuff that he's the most allergic to.
He was so allergic to corn, that if he even smelled popcorn cooking, he would get a migraine!
Thankfully, he's not as bad as he used to be. But there still must be something
that he wasn't tested for that bothers him, because he still gets one every once in a while.
Sometimes so bad that he needs a prescription.
I feel so much better staying away from the gluten too.
Quite a few people in our family have tried it without knowing if they even have a problem.
They've felt much better, but couldn't stick to it. The younger ones can't be bothered
to fix their own or make it from scratch. Too pressed for time, plus they want take out food!
It's a lot more expensive if you buy the mixes & premade things than making everything
from scratch! Plus there isn't a big selection around here yet,
(although it is getting a little better). Sometimes though it's weeks until they restock!
I wondered why there are so many more people being diagnosed now?
I just thought it was because they are becoming more aware of it & checking for it.
But I also read that as more foods are genetically modified, there will be more problems.
That the body apparently sees GMO food as an invader.
Don't know how true it is, but I could see the logic behind it!
Maybe that's the reason for the increase in inflammatory diseases!
Hubby is allergic to corn, wheat, soy, peanuts, plus a bunch more in varying degrees.
But the ones I listed are all GMO foods. He's also allergic to eggs & milk.
I wondered if that was because the animals are fed GMO feed???
I am also mildly allergic to eggs, but was able to eat them when we went to Australia.
I noticed that the carton said cage free, organic. So I'm in the process of experimenting
to see if I can eat the same kind here! I haven't been brave enough to try the bad ones
as a control meal yet though!
I only found out I even have allergies a little over a year ago. The way I found out
some of them, was by asking to be tested for the things that gave me really bad heartburn!
Sure enough, all of them, with no other symptoms. Bananas, green peppers & coffee!
The other ones were a complete surprise. But I did notice I get really tired if I
happen to eat one of the worst ones! Another thing that's a learning process!
It's been a little nerve wracking lately with no bigger quakes.
Kind of like waiting for the other shoe to drop!
