Greetings, Eric Bakker, New Zealand naturopath. Thanks for checking out my video.
I've got an interesting question here. I've got lots of questions to go through again, as usual. So here's a question from a subscriber.
"Eric, do you have any suggestions for people who have allergic reactions to a lot of healthy foods. I've been on the strict candida diet for four months and my allergic reactions to things like nuts and seeds, lemon juice I get mouth tingling, eggs I get gut and nasal, nightshades and the achy joints, et cetera. I never had such reactions to these things when I was healthy. Could it be the long term allergies or simply because of leaky gut candida? Should I avoid all of these things strictly and try again when I am healed?"
That's a great question. Well, the first thing I'd recommend you probably do is check out ... do a stool test on yourself to see what the heck is going on inside. You know, a stool test generally will give you a lot of good information. It's gonna show you what the microbiology of the gut is like, where the imbalances are, where your strengths are, where your weaknesses are.
You don't need to do a leaky gut test if you do a stool test because that will give you a pretty good idea on how permeable the gut is. You'll be able to pick that up through the secretory IgA, through the bacterial levels, all sorts of different things. So that would be probably a smart thing to do if you've been sick for this long. You could also consider food allergy testing, you know, a blood based test for IgG, IgE antibodies to see if you're reacting to any kind of foods. That's probably maybe the first test that you may want to consider, will be the food allergy before you do a stool test.
Now let's say you can't afford any testing at all. Well, fair, fair enough. Okay, if you can't afford any testing, I can appreciate that. What I recommend you do then is write down all of the foods that you're currently consuming ... all the foods! So just get a piece of paper, my piece, my love allergy sheet for example. Say you were, for example, here. You'd write all your foods down in a column here, every food that you eat. Okay? This is quite a smart thing to do.
So you write nightshades, you write lemon juice, you write nuts and seeds. Define the nuts and seeds. Do you eat almonds? Do you eat brazil nuts? Do you eat poppy seeds? Do you eat sunflower seeds? I write everything down, preferably in categories: meats, dairy, vegetables, fruits, condiments, grains, all that kind of stuff, and then itemize all those. You could do it on Excel Spreadsheet. And then you've got columns on the right of that. What you wanna do then is write your severity index. All right? So meaning one, mild reaction, two, moderate reaction, three, bad reaction. So just put a tick in those columns. And then have a look at that list and then date it. So now you've established all the foods you eat, how strong a reaction is, and when you got those reactions. All right? This is a very smart thing to do, because then over time, as your gut heals, you should notice that those things are going from a strong reaction down to a moderate to a mild reaction.
So, I hope that answers your question. Thanks for the question, I appreciate it.
