I bought the book the other day, after I realized one of, if not my main trigger.
Some may remember my first post ‘Uk experience with CU’, in that I described the origin of my hives and my allergic reaction, I attributed it to a culmination of high histamine foods and hay fever. However, I was making a smoothie last week consisting of apples, bananas, milk and ice cream. I drank 1/2 and gave half to my gf.
Pretty much instantly I got a scratchy throat, puffy eyes, went to be sick and came back down with a swollen lip and then went to bed with cramps. I thought back to my first reaction and realized I was walking and eating a Banana when it happened.
I’ve done some research and I think it’s a pollen allergy, I get similar symptoms during high pollen.
Does anyone have any experience with this. I personally think it’s just one of many triggers or allergens. Only because I still have my CU even though I don’t eat those foods, i.e. apples, bananas etc.
I’m working on cutting milk out, as I was intolerant as a baby, and drank soya & goats milk. I still have it in my brews and its in loads of things too.
