Finding the solution after many years of suffering


Christina ~ For many years I have suffered. Having many headaches and migraines as a young child with no reason why, stomaches, hives, rashes, ecsema, unexplained itching, later in life (20's) I was diagnosed with IBS & Acid Reflux after spending at least 3 nights a week up, sick all night. I also started to get more irritable and my pms was getting worse.

Two years ago I went in for allergy testing. I didn't ask to be tested for milk, after all I grew up on milk, lived on a farm, how could I be allergic? They tested foods because I knew that walnuts produced blisters in my mouth. They went ahead and tested all foods. To my surprise Milk came back as a possible allergy …

 I was floored! My allergist said maybe I am just lactose intolerant. I tried that for two weeks and nothing happened. I still felt bad, still had the "runs". Two years passed before I tried Dairy free. I was having anxiety attacks at the time so I didn't want to try something in the midst of that. Well I wish I had. For the first time in years I am not moody before my period! I have only been Dairy free for two weeks but I feel wonderful! I've lost 7 lbs and my bloated belly is going down fast!

I hope this helps someone, I know I suffered too many years and this should have been caught early on in my life. Would have saved me many trips to the emergency room.
