1. Jasmine, you are so scaring me. My parents still can’t get over my lactose intolerance – they think it it is all in my head. The stuff you are doing is so beyond my imagination. However, it is scary that corn is in everything. It is just scary

      awww, don’t be mad at the messenger! Knowledge is power and it is what we do with that to keep ourselves and our families healthy and happy!

      Almost everyone is lactose intolerant. We’re not supposed to be drinking the milk of other animals. Cows milk is for baby cows! People just drink it because they’re addicted (casein is similar to morphine) and they are used to feeling sick constantly. It’s awful that your parents would say you are just “making it up”. So rude! I wish you the best, Lena.

      I would love to try gluten free and corn free. I’ve been off meat (except fish) for over a year. I’ve been off dairy for over a year. I had quit fish and eggs for a very long while but picked it back up several months ago- I just quit those this week. I’m still feeling sick to my stomach all the time- I need to quit gluten and corn. Kind of hard to quit gluten since it’s in EVERYTHING, and I make a really incredible seitan “roast” from vital wheat gluten. Corn might be a bit easier.

      In the end, we’re all better off eating whole plant foods and avoiding processed foods. Fruit alone for breakfast each morning to clear our digestive systems, and veggies through the rest of the day. It’s hard to do, but I know I’d feel better if I did.

    You’re right, corn is in everything! It’s cheap and it seems everything comes down to the almighty dollar….

    It scares me that companies have just moved forward with GM crops without having done the research.

    I keep reminding people that the “M” word company is the VERY same company that lied about the health effects of PCB’s… Yet people want to put their complete faith in them with their FOOD supply….

      Katie, you are correct, it’s cheap and it’s about the biggest profit for little quality in our foods. Education is key and how we can share our knowledge!

    This is so informational. We are currently doing the Lactose free diet with my youngest, yet in my heart I have a feeling we’ll end up having to do a blood test for glucose allergy. I can not imagine how hard it is for you & your family to go shopping for food with all the sensitivities you have acquired. I wish you & your family the best of luck & thank you for sharing your knowledge it may prove to be very beneficial to me in the days to come.

    Hi Jasmine,
    Interesting article. I am celiac… and I haven’t noticed a specific issue with corn, but wondering… could corn products test positive for gluten?

    Lots to think about.

      Tanya, It is something to think about and I think that is part of the reason why the FDA has not approved gluten free labeling because they have not identified an “allowable” safe amount of gluten to be labeled gluten free. Oats we know is a risk, and why we have to buy gfree oats and that is easy to do..but corn…corn is in everything and if there is zero allowable amounts, then it can be tricky.

    Great information, thank you

  7. This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    So glad to see your blog. I have just started researching corn allergies and sensitivities. I retired from teaching to help my daughter with homeschooling her school age children. I found my 4th grade grandson had reading problems that we were unable to diagnose. I called in my friends to help and no one could name the problem. It seemed to be a tracking problem but his eyes were checked and there were no significant issues. In desperation, we started the elimination diet with both grandsons. It was absolutely miraculous. His fluency issues were almost gone. Suddenly one morning the reading was so difficult. He had popcorn the evening before! Wow! I had no idea after teaching for so many years that reading problems could be tied to diet! I knew about behavior but not reading. We have not added all the foods back yet, so I am not sure if there will be other sensitivities. People will often look at us like we are crazy when we share this story. They think we are cruel for depriving the boys of certain kinds of food. Perhaps, they would rather we medicate instead! Thank you so much for providing so much good information!

      Hi Gayla,

      I am glad you found my blog! My goal is to empower all in taking charge of their health, even when it goes against the rules of modern medicine. We all have the ability to heal our bodies. I see the food reactions in my son’s behavior big time, he is still young, but I think it delays his speech. As a teacher, I am glad you see the links, you have the ability to influence others in their thought process in how foods affect our ability to learn as well. Please come back again soon!

    I am so glad I found your blog. I have been trying to limit what I eat to see what could be causing my tummy issues and I do believe that corn is that major issue. I wasn’t able to eat it when I was littler and now it’s in everything. I can’t wait to follow your blog to learn more about your diet and how you eat.
