I'm running out of foods; for the last several months, I've been losing about two foods a week. Every day I'm eating food I'm allergic to because I'm not willing to go hungry. Many days I'm just eating one food a day.

When my food allergies have gotten bad in the past, I'd take probiotics and antioxidants and things would get better. I'm taking decent probiotics now, but can't find antioxidants I'm not allergic to.

I'm allergic to vitamin C, grape seed extract, serrapeptase, apple polyphenols, and most other antioxidants I can find. Quercetin, aloe vera concentrate, and Megahydrate are the antioxidants I'm able to tolerate at this time. I don't understand why they aren't working as well as they have in the past.

My only guess is that not taking any vitamin C at all, since it showed up on an ALCAT test for delayed allergies in May, is somethings so basic my body just can't get by without it, although that's purely supposition.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe look into a low histamine diet. In conjunction with the quercetin, it may help. You might also look into a DAO supplement.

I'd also do a rotation so you don't eat the same food every day.

I can't take ascorbic acid (vitamin C) but I can take 100% fruit sourced vitamin C. It's just the chemical ascorbic acid that seems to bother me.

Many online health speakers I listen to say the gut needs repair when there are allergies to food like this. You could check out Josh Axe and google for others who suggest starting gut repair with broths.

I can't do C of any kind.

GVS .. Did you say you have mast cell disease?

I got better by reducing my intake of histamine, salicylates and oxalates. You are probably having big trouble with all three.

I think I finally got eggs back, but I am hesitant to eat them very often.

Be very careful about trying to add supplements right now. Your body will most likely reject them.

Forgot to add that I take cromolyn sodium, which has been a big help.

I also take Xyzal and Pepcid for symptom relief and Opti-PEA to reduce reactions to meds and foods.

Mast Cells in Gastrointestinal Disease:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3033552/

Scroll down to "Potential Therapies" -- last section of article. Lots of other Rx meds are listed there, besides Gastrocrom (cromolyn sodium), such as Montekulast and also Budesonide. Google them for more info.

Also google: The Paleo Mom -- website on autoimmunity
Also google: Danielle Walker + autoimmune paleo diet

Both of these two advocates of autoimmune paleo diets have inspirational success stories as proof of their successful recoveries.
