    I think a major reason this is so prevelant, is that people who have food allergies/sensitivities are often looking for ways to heal them, bringing them to places like MDA. That's my case and the case of many others. I don't think primal eating is in any way the *cause* of this type of stufff--more like a possible cure...

    I also think MOST folks are walking around, ingesting food that is probably making them sick or feel like shit, and they don't realize it and are just accepting that that is how it feels to get older. (Which may be why you don't hear a group of folks eating SAD talking about their food sensitivities and how they are working to heal them all that often...)

    I agree w/ a pp that YMMV. It is my *hope* that we'll heal many/most of our sensitivities through this way of eating, along w/ supplementing key nutrients and probiotcs... But I can't know what the future holds for us--we'll see what happens! It really has worked for some folks, and that's part of what keeps me trying! (I'd love ds to be able to eat almonds, strawberries and oranges w/out getting a rash at some point, among other things...)

      I think both of those things are definitely true. I'm just not sure that's all of it. Not sure it isn't either But I do still wonder about it.

        I developed severe allergies to cats/dogs in my early twenties. Every year it was getting worse and worse to the point I would feel like I had the flu if I spent more than an hour in a house with pets. Since going primal (and I'm far from perfectly primal) I've had a few encounters with houses with pets and other than a few sneezes I have been fine! I still don't believe it and I keep expecting the worst when going to visit certain people but I keep getting better so you are definitely not crazy. I'm excited to see just how much better I can get over time my seasonal allergies and asthma are way better as well.

          Yeah, about 40K per day for a month wouldn't be inappropriate.

          iherb.com has 5k and I think 10K pills. vitamindcouncil.org has 50,000 IU pills through one of their links.

          We already know your D is low though

          My dd grew out of some major food allergies, incl eggs, nuts, and stone fruits. *crosses fingers for FairyRae* Another dear friend in our homeschool group has grown out of anaphylactic allergies to eggs and hazelnuts as well as less severe allergies. Another little friend is still anaphylactic to eggs but no longer reactive at all to fish or dairy. There is hope.

          +1 but most of it was related, for me, to vitamin D levels....just getting of grains and sugar didn't do it.

            You know me too well, tailkitten! It's kinda creepy being so understood. lol

            Thanks for the links! I will have to check them out... it would sure beat eating 20 1k bills like I did last night.

              thats awesome!
