Can you be so in tuned with your body – you hear what it craves to repair?
I wrote this blog some weeks ago … further research confirms most all of what I love to eat & drink are a problem for me currently … I do not have asthma say the Doctors after numerous test …. but only a few nights ago I woke gasping for breath again …. what changed? “Red Wine” with a friend for her birthday! After further research I have discovered … Fermented food and Red Wine is off limits for me, as I am becoming quite aware of Histamine Intolerance as the root of my problem.
Your body craves attention & when it comes to food – it definitely tells me what I need! “Usually Vegetables” 🥒 something green.
But unfortunately, #extract Extract Mind Body Green, all those “healthy” foods that are supposed to be great for you can actually make you feel worse. It’s an underlying cause of inflammation and chronic symptoms with Histamine Intolerance
The luxury before allergies I ate most everything, but now I need to think before I eat! Sometimes I forget!
Flu season has heightened my allergic reactions, suffering from Bronchitis & breathing issues unlike asthma ..Alarm bells are ringing … I need to take a good look at my food intake & re-assess.
A few weeks or so ago, I woke feeling fantastic after a month of coughing, wheezing, choking…..I thought I’d turned a corner, early morning I woke, feeling back to square one after a restless night of coughing fits.
What changed I question myself?
I cooled off in the water, nothing too strenuous, but it was a little fresh when breeze picked up & its Sunday! (The breeze takes my breath away) My body seems to always crave or has formed bad Sunday eating habit’s / or my one day to relax & eat what I want … rather than make something fresh.
1. Breakfast : Green Tea, Greek Yoghurt mixed berries, chia seeds, green powder, honey 🍯 coffee (same previous day)
2. Snack : Noodles 🍝 preservatives mmm in spice? ( nothing previous day)
3. Lunch : Large vegetable Spring Roll … soy & sweet chilli sauce 🌶 mmm soy sauce maybe a problem (previous day cheese quesadilla & cup of beef soup)
4. Snack : Corn Chips – not my usual gluten free! ( previous day gluten free corn chips)
5: Dinner : Spaghetti 🍝 Bolognaise (gluten in pasta mmm ) (previous day chilli con carne, advocado, sour cream burrito)
6: Snack : 1 square coconut milk chocolate 🍫 … I never eat milk chocolate … always dark chocolate…this may have been the culprit! (Previous day 2 Allens snakes & green tea with mint)
Drinks : Water & Soda water & Lime (acidic mmm)
(Previous day water & apple & carrot juice & green tea /mint)
I was on Antibiotics, Zyrtec Antihistamine, codeine cough medicine, inhaler!
What my body craves & doesn’t!
Cheese 🧀 (some on occasion my body craves cheese quesadillas & I sometimes enjoy blue cheese & crackers)
Sweets 🍭 ( Dark Chocolate my favourite after dinner )
Red Meat 🍖 (My diet over the past year has introduced a little more as I suffered from fish poisoning / ciguatera last year – limiting my intake to prevent a reaction)
Green apples – my favourite!
My allergic reactions are peanuts, wine, mangoes , chic peas ( as hummus was the cause of my last reaction )
These particular articles rang true for me as the food & accompaniments are what I ate yesterday … but don’t always eat … when traveling on a boat often away from mainland your usual food consumption changes to suit hunger & limiting supplies.
From my research, Milk products, Chocolate, Soy, Gluten are an issue with allergic reactions/asthma & I consumed all of them yesterday hence my coughing /breathing fits that night were seriously increased.
Learning to understand my triggers, choosing food & beverages to suit my body is a recipe for Life! I am paying a lot of attention lately….from my research so far, it appears choosing to eliminate these fermented foods and drinks for a while and then slowly introducing them one by one … I will learn to assess which are the problem ones.
