I do a variation of the failsafe diet. My current diet consists of plain unbleached flour pastries (homemade muffins, pancakes, biscuits ... anything made without yeast), eggs almost every day, oatmeal occasionally, whole milk occasionally, butter, canola oil occasionally, chicken breast, baked potato, sweet potato, pear, golden delicious apple, carrots, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, celery, plain pastas with butter, mozzarella cheese (in moderation), sushi rice, vanilla ice cream, very occasionally a hamburger.
I used to eat a lot of whole wheat (have a wheat grinder and made my own breads/muffins, etc). My asthma got aggrevated once after eating whole wheat cereal so I decided to cut it out for a while ... my overall lung function improved after just cutting that out for a few weeks and my chronic yeast dissapeared (oral thrush/vaginal yeast for 4 years ... even with antifungals). I do believe now that I don't just have sal/histamin intol but also oxalate intolerance because of the connection with yeast and asthma. I can't take straight vitamin C without feeling very tense and OCDish afterwards. Very strange feeling... apparently there is a connection between high vitamin C and natural production of oxalates.
I just had some blood work done and all my vitamin/minerals checked were in the normal levels. My copper was toward the low end and my magnesium was borderline low. My B6 was medium-high (not too high, though), zinc was normal.
I would love to find out what the cause of this is. My eating was normal until about 6 years ago when suddenly something changed I started having throat swelling, tongue tingling and face tingling reactions. Then it progressed to chronic asthma with asthma attacks. The failsafe diet has helped a lot but I still don't always feel great. I would love to find out what caused this ... how to fix it ... what dr to see.
