I wrote weeks ago about taking a Food Sensitivity Test. It tests for food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities.
I finally got my results back and I did get some surprises!
I cannot believe I a have food intolerances for these items. I am not really sure which one is the most shocking.
It appears I have an intolerance to honeydew melon. Have not had any in really long time! I do not remember the last time I had any, and it's not something I really crave so I will not be missing it!
Same goes with Trout and Sole, while I have not had them in awhile, I wonder if it just these too, or if I have a whitefish allergy. I really like catfish, perch, walleye, and lots of other locally caught fish so I really hope that’s not the case.
It looks as if I do have a slight dairy intolerance. It is not a lactose intolerance, but Bovine Lactoferrin. Is something equally found in dairy products - milk, cheese, whey. This will be a big one as I do take whey protein and love cheese!
Lastly, the biggest surprise...Cayenne! I love cayenne and hot peppers. I put hot sauce on my food almost every day. I take baths in cayenne. I really hope this doesn't mean I am intolerant to other peppers as well. Every summer , I grow hot peppers like Habanero, Trinidad Scorpion, Carolina Reaper, and Ghost Pepper. I seriously am infatuated with Cayenne and Hot peppers so this will be a tough one for me.
Which begs the question..or many questions...How much should we trust these results? Even if we are intolerant and love these things, should we still consume them? I have been avoiding Cayenne but I am not sure I should. Just because I am intolerant, is there any way around it? Did I get intolerant from consuming too much? Can I become tolerant again? I can live without dairy, but please don't take my Cayenne away from me!
I certainly implore you to try out one of these tests. It could important in finding out something about how your body works. Please follow and/or upvote if you enjoyed the post!
