Food Sensitivity: Apples?
Is it even possible for Apples to be a trigger for behavior issues? Ds has issues, and we were trying to eliminate dairy, but seems like when he has apples or cider, we have extra issues. Maybe it's all in my head and complete coincidence. I dunno, I'm starting to feel like maybe I'm just crazy.
Actually any food can be a trigger food, so it's good that you are being so aware. Keep a food diary for him and see if it's just the apples, or also something else. This is the only way I found some of my son's issues.
google "oral allergy syndrome". I'm TOTALLY allergic to apples, carrots and most stone fruits. It has gotten worse as I've gotten older. When I was little I used to tell my mother that carrots "made me cough", she made me eat them anyway, now carrots give me anaphalaxis and my throat closes up.
I recommend you all check out the following site
Salicylate sensitivity can effect us all but at least 1 in 5 known to suffer from it. Many unknowing!
Hives, itching, wheezing, ...... even at the worst end of scale anaphylaxis.
If sal' sensitive then the only 'safe' fruits are golden delicious apples, pears peeled and cored and bananas!!
veggies are very limited too and corn is a definite no no ........ and I think, for me pectin too ....
'Safe' veggies include the cabbage family, onion family, celery, leeks, swede, OLD variety white potatoes without skins, maybe butternut squash.
all beans and lentils are 'safe' except borlotti beans
However to be sure check out the food guide here:-
sal sensitivity has implications for adhd, hyperactivity, restlessness, poor concentration confusion ....the list goes on!
visit the site and see if symptoms fit.
