As far as food is concerned Ive always eaten healthy, love veggies, and anything homemade. Years ago I could eat wheatgerm, apples, ginger, plums, etc,. Then one day I couldn't. I would be ill if I ate any of those things, and I couldn't understand why.
My throat would swell, so I managed to keep away from these things for about 15 yrs. I became allergic in my early 20's. So several weeks ago, I decided to try ginger again (due to watching Ming on television), and everything he uses has ginger, as a matter of fact about a yr ago, someone posted a great recipe here and I asked if anyone knew a substitute for ginger, and I was told no.
Anyway, I bought fresh ginger, and decided to try it, my family watched as this was scary for them, but I figured a little wouldn't hurt. I took a small piece and bit the smallest piece you can think of, and nothing.
Then another, though spicy as heck, I really wanted to know, I bit again, and then boiled a couple of slivers, and drank it.... NOTHING happened! I was so happy, I went back into my car, and drove back into town, and bought apples, plums, and even raw carrots, mind you this was the first time in my daughters life (13) that she had ever seen me eat any of those things, and everything was ok.
Now you cant take me away from ginger, I drink about 8 oz everyday, apples all day long, and I am fully taking advantage of my new found non-allergic life. I tried to look up something that could explain why all of a sudden I no longer have allergies, but to no avail, so I wondered if this has happened to anyone else.
I've heard of allergies coming and going, but it's mostly with pets, pollen, ect. Not with food. Maybe it's GMO food you are allergic too, have you considered that?
