I decided to try cutting out as many lectins as was possible and it has had a dramatic effect on me for the better. Last year this time I had several allergy problems, I had really bad hayfever since I was a child but over the last 4-5 years had developed allergic ashma, dog allergy, mold allergies and was starting to feel as if everything was going seriously downhill. I was on steroid inhalers and various other tablets and sprays which at the very best marginally kept my symptoms in check. Since getting really quite serious about cutting out lectins all my allergies have dissappeared.
I did try introducing some of (only small amount) the banned foods and immediately started having symptoms again.......so I'm sticking with it.
It may not work for everyone but I thought I would add my personal experience.....but would be very interested to hear other peoples experiences...either positive or negative with this.
Welcome to the Forum candi15. Thank you for sharing your story about finding your personal food triggers. It takes perseverance to figure out what isn't making us feel good and I commend you on keeping at it and finding your success. I too eliminated common foods that caused inflammation and after trying reintroduction, found that dairy really made me hurt. Once I figured that out I have been compelled to keep dairy out of my diet so I can continue living pain free.
