Just thought I’d share my little health good news story as it may help others as others have helped me!
For 6 years now I’ve suffered with “allergies and ibs” I suffered with what seemed like random and very painful bloating. Daily sinus inflammation whereby I couldn’t breathe through my nose, headaches and uncomfortably itchy hands and feet, often stopping me from getting to sleep.
After many trips to the GP over the years my problems were being treated all as separate allergies. I was given a steroid nose spray that I had to take every single day- and it was frequently changed for another steroid spray because they never worked. I also used a none steroidal nose spray every day before bed )otherwise sleep was non-existent), antihistamines each day for the itching and various tablets for the ibs.
I had been talking to a few people fairly recently about it and someone happened to mention their sister who had the same symptoms a few years ago and who was told to remove certain foods from her diet. It turned out dairy foods were the cause.
I got talking to others after that and someone always seemed to know someone who had done the same thing and their problems were solved.
So a month ago I removed all dairy foods/drinks from my diet. And the results only took a week. Though I was a bit hesitant at start and thought it might just be in my mind! But a month later and I haven’t had to use any medication at all for 3 weeks now. And I’ve had absolutely no symptoms at all! I can actually breathe through my nose again!!- which sounds stupid but it has made the world of difference!! Not being randomly horribly bloated for a month now has been amazing as well!
I have another GP appointment tomorrow- and I look forward to telling him I have essentially been misdiagnosed for the last 6 years! (One doctor even wanted me to give up my house bunny at one point blaming her!! So glad I didn’t!!)
So if you’re going through similar symptoms or know someone else who is- it may well be dairy in their diet that’s causing the problem!
Just make sure if that’s the case you’re getting enough calcium from other foods.
