Dairy Can Aggravate Arthritis

Anonymous ~ I have known for several years that I was "somewhat lactose intolerant" and would eat yogurt & small amounts of cheese but not drink milk as it caused me gastrointestinal problems. Recently, I went to a naturopathic doctor who took me off all dairy products. She told me that if you are lactose intolerant, you are lactose intolerant & that dairy intolerance creates other problems in your system besides gastrointestinal problems & can stress your body as it is fighting foods your body cannot handle. I have had pains in my hands from arthritis & migraines since I was about 18, and I am now pain-free!

She has taken me off all the seven common allergens for three months (dairy, wheat, peanuts, corn, eggs, soy, & chocolate) as well as the nightshade family of potatoes, tomatoes, & eggplant as these foods & any food allergy can aggravate arthritis & migraines. I wanted to cry when I first walked in the grocery store after this. Thank you so much for your site!

If you want to see if you have a food allergy, take it completely out of your diet for two weeks & then eat a lot of it on the 15th day & note the difference in symptoms.
