    Sneezing

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I used to sneeze a lot at work. People would always say Gezundheit to me although I wasn't ill and did not have any kind of cold. I thought it was the air conditioning. Now no grains (with some cheating), much less carb and more meat, fat and veg, and the sneezing has gone.

    I went through a streak las week for about 3 days - I must have sneezed 20 times a day. Then it stopped. When it stopped, I noticed a change in my body - I felt even more attuned to how I felt after eating (a real stste of being full) and even more energy. I wonder if something internal was going on? Clearing out the last remnants of the old me???

    I've been wondering the same kind of thing...not necessarily with sneezing, but with body-rearrangement in general.

    I've been primal about 6 months now and 2 months ago, I developed a 'patch' on my right upper thigh about 6 inches in diameter that ached and burned...basically felt like I had an area of road rash but there wasn't anything to see! Being in the medical field, I hear a lot about different neuralgias (pain caused by nerves mis-firing signals to the brain that there's pain there) and decided to wait a bit 'cause about all they can do is either give you pain meds or use radiology to see if a nerve is pinched.

    Since it's appearance, the 'patch' has gotten smaller, but a bit more intense and has me wondering if my having lost about a dozen inches around my hips and butt -- the nerve endings having to 'retreat' -- has caused the condition. I'm still waiting to see if it will resolve itself as my body continues to readjust to it's new shape.

    I think there's just so much histamine your body can cope with at one time. For instance, when I was growing up with a smoker*, I was super-sensitive to cats. Now I'm fine with most cats, but if I'm in a dusty environment for awhile or if I'm outdoors in pollen time I start reacting to cats again. And I think grains and sugar feed into that same system, so if you're eating those your body is already at the limit where it can cope with irritants without outward symptoms, so any new irritant presents as sneezing, watery eyes, rashes, etc.


    *And I didn't realize it affected me until I went back for a visit after a few years living smoke free and had my nose instantly stuff up and turn into a faucet.

    I am pretty sure this is either grain or sugar related. On the very rare occasions I have eaten a croissant or sticky bun for breakfast (the boss provides such things every day) I've started sneezing immediately. A bit later in the day it goes away again. I'll have to try eating some rice from the lunchtime Chinese to see if has the same effect.

    Haven't been eating the rice part for months now, although I suspect white rice with plenty of butter is not nearly so problematic as noodles. In fact, anything really soaked in butter seems ok in moderation, even spaghetti. I ate quite a bit of spaghetti with lots of butter over Christmas along with lots of wine every evening and no harm seems to have been done. The protective effects of lard I expect.
