hi all! Winking smile

So I’ve been wanting to share with you all my experience with my allergies!
I had a whole post typed up, but I thought I’d be able to give you more details
on a VLOG! (and I like to talk, duh)

My girl, Jill Hanner, has been having some allergy issues lately
& I thought this would be a perfect time to post this
to help her out & hopefully others as well!Winking smile

So here it is…

    Thank you soo much! I really needed to hear this!

  2. um LOVE THIS. story of my life that i totally get stuck into a RUT with my food. i am the same way once i love a food i just repeat that food until i switch! ah just a problem! i love this because like i told you i have a dairy allergy (since i was like 6!) as well as a whey allergy..and i have irritable bowel so all that stomach crap um TOTALLY understand! even grains in large amounts really cause bad bloating so i really only eat oats and then just have sweet potatoes and veggies! this was seriously SUCH a good reminder that i need to SWITCH UP what i eat especially the veggies! I am a huge lover of snap peas and green beans because broccoli and cauliflower cause wayy to much bloating! no fun! do you have any suggestions of what else I should try in taht area?
    and i LOVE that you did this because like i said before you totally are such an inspiration to me and the world of bloating has always been like ugh get used to it em. but um obviously from your pictures THERE IS NO BLOATING! aka I CAN DO THIS! its up to me to take control!
    so thank you so much for this vlog! and i am totally going to be hitting you up more about questions for what to incorporate as meals into my diet!<3
    love you!

  3. Great vlog! I found out I was allergic to gluten about two years ago and the symptoms are slowly going away. Sadly i think there is something else seriously wrong with my gut because I still get extreme bloating and pain… hmm. I really appreciate you sharing all of this, it helps a lot!

  4. I cannot believe you said you had eczema! I grew up with severe eczema and for the past few years, ALL over my hands, stomach issues, etc. I cut out gluten because I found out I was intolerant, but I’m still not 100% so I have been thinking about maybe getting an allergy test like that. Thank you SO much for posting this!

  5. I have had stomach issues my whole life and I am just starting to take control of it and test what is causing it. I have cut out gluten and I feel way better but I still do get pain sometimes so I think I want to get blood work done just to see exactly what it is.

    SO glad you found me on instagram! I love the ideas you give me with your variety of meals! Interesting vlog about your allergy experiences! I grew up super healthy too, all I wanted as a kid was white bread! Guess our moms were onto something, huh?

    Funny almonds are the one that make you flare up. My mom is allergic to citrus, a lot of fruit, tomatoes, all nuts EXCEPT almonds! I recently developed an allergy to mangoes, my lips would get swollen and sting and get fever blisters (they feel like you have sandpaper on your lips). Luckily, I figured it out pretty fast (when it’s around the mouth it can get serious as far as being able to breathe) and at least it’s something that’s pretty avoidable for the most part.

  7. I’m glad to hear a story like this that has a happy ending. My only allergy is to oat bran, therefore I can’t eat any oat product because the bran is always in there. But learning that didn’t solve my stomach problems at all. I’m taking wheat out of my diet for a while but that doesn’t seem to be doing a whole lot either. I think my body hasn’t normalized after my ED yet, but it’s been a long time and it’s beyond frustrating. I think it’s so weird how some people are so affected by what they eat and others seem not to be at all. Thanks for sharing your story and I’m glad you’ve found what works for you :)

    After seven long years of dealing with pretty bad acne I finally thought to cut out dairy and my skin has finally started to clear up -_- if only I had known sooner!

  9. Great stuff! :-) I have a friend whose hubby has eczema. She researched it extensively & has him eating only certain foods.

    I do my best & I my be MILDLY allergic to some stuff – not sure – but nothing bad enough to give up yet! 😉

    I know for people that have really bad symptoms, getting testes & knowing what to & NOT to eat is so important!

    Wow this was so eye opening! I have dealt with stomach issues for so long, this sounds so much like me. I didn’t realize how bad it can be to be in a food rut. I feel like I probably do have allergies to some foods!
    Is getting the blood work down very expensive at all? I really would like to look into this.

  11. Amazing! Thanks for posting this – I love that you pointed out overdoing it with certain foods on a daily basis. Thinking back to a few years ago, I ate the same things EVERY DAY & it was no wonder I was plagued with chronic stomach issues. Variety is key – and something I try to practice everyday. I feel amazing!

  13. Kasey!! So of course, we’ve been Instagram friends for a long time now and I’ve been dying to head over to your website. I finally did this morning and I’m so glad I did. The first thing I did was watch this vlog to get to know you a little better. I loved it. I have had lots of stomach/skin issues my whole life, which led me to Paleo. So anyway, I’m glad I found your site. You are beautiful and so driven! Xo Jenna

    Hi! Love your blog! Props on figuring all that out on your own! Couldn’t agree more about eating the rainbow – I try to get every color in every day :) Have you tried soaking your almonds overnight before eating them ? That may help break some of the harsh enzymes and photic acid down so they’re easier to digest. What is the name of that test? I’d like to go get one done!

    I feel like this is the story of my life. Have severe allergies to all dairy and eggs and a mild allergy to soy. I was vegetarian and am now vegan, but it’s difficult because I have to watch my soy intake. Thanks for sharing. It’s a difficult lifestyle but manageable.

    Man, I went through basically the same things when I was younger, it is definitely such an upsetting problem that people don’t understand unless they experience it. I’ve found the FODMAPs “diet” has helped SO MUCH with my IBS and figuring out my food sensitivities. Do you have to ask for a special blood test to get all those things diagnosed? I’ve wanted to do allergy testing, but haven’t seen blood testing for it before! So much easier than scratch test! Sometimes if I eat the same things over and over again I notice a bad reaction to them and then after a while I can start eating them again. Great post!
