  • Process of elimination, possible allergy to EGGS...NOOOOOO!!!!!

    Ok, so I'm wondering if I've developed an allergy to eggs. For more info, please read my thread on dermatitis.

    I just had a breakfast shake with the following in it:

    Coconut milk
    Water
    Avocado
    Raspberries/Blueberries
    Flax
    One raw egg

    And...I'm kind of itchy. I did some basic googling and found that egg white allergies may present themselves as some form of eczema or dermatitis.

    So, now what? I love my eggs and bacon for breakfast in the morning. Can I lightly fry egg yolks though not cook them all the way?

    This sucks if my findings prove true....

    Could also be a mild Herx reaction, coconut milk killing candida.

      Amazing stuff, that crasay coconut! Thanks for the link. I wondered that myself, coconut being anti-fungal and all.

        how do you do with soy? reason I ask is some people can do eggs but only if they confirm the chicken feed is not soy based. if it is, no eggs

          I don't do well with raw eggs whites. Get a queasy feeling when I put them in a protien shake.

          No issues with eggs over easy, lightly scrambled, or soft boiled. Take it for what it's worth...

            maile,

            I haven't touched soy products in years! To my knowledge, the feed is not soy based either.

              ^Best not to assume, find out if you can.

              Cut out eggs altogether for 3 weeks. Do you feel itchy with the same shake without the egg? Eat plenty of eggs for 2 days, then stop eating them again and see if you have any allergy symptoms (itchiness, congestion, post nasal drip, etc.) the days following that. That is what my nutritionist recommended to me to determine if I have an egg allergy. I'm repeating the process soon with nightshades (testing with bell peppers), citrus, and yeast (using apple cider vinegar and probably having some red wine).

                My kids get that with raw egg white,but no problems with cooked eggs. Flax-seed is highly allergenic too. If you recently started getting symthomps to food you have always tolerated, I'd consider it being leaky gut. And having been through Herxheimer myself, I have to say I strongly doubt it's die-off. Sounds like allergy to me.

                  Hi nameless

                  I had a similar shake today and I was fine. *tries to think* I don't remember being itchy. I would have made a note about it.

                  Someone mentioned here that it could be coconut killing off fungi too. Thereby causing itchiness.

                  I'm off eggs completely as of today. The next time I see my organic grocer, I'll ask him about the feed the chickens get.

                    Through said process of elimination, I'm curious to see if this is still a yeast infection or something else. I've had dermatitis for just over 9 months now. As stated in my other thread, it's gotten loads better.

                    I really hope it's not leaky gut :-\

                      I still want to get to the bottom of why my face itches in-between meals. THAT is what puzzles me the most.

                        Leaky gut is extremely common and not hard to fix- don't worry.

                        I cured candida in the gut and with that I also healed my leaky gut.

                            It took 6 months of the right foods and supplements... Only in the last 2 months have I been entirely symthom-free (used to get burning abdominal pain followed by the runs). I'm still healing, it took me 10 years of crap eating to get here, it takes 1-2 years to fully heal it and you have to diligent with your diet. I'm never going back to SAD but consider it to be a slow process. Hopefully I stopped leaky gut before it got too serious, as in auto-immune disease.

                              What kind of supplements were you taking? Probiotics?
