View Full Version : Allergic reaction??
03-19-2007, 05:09 PM
I just came off the Master Cleanse. I've been fine - good experience. Munching on grapes today. I started getting hungry so I went to the Whole Foods raw bar and got some pumpkin seed cheese and flax crackers. After about 2 crackers with cheese my throat started hurting - like I had come down with strep throat in 5 minutes! I have never in my life had an experience like this and I have no allergies that I'm aware of. It hurt so much I stopped eating and left. After about 15 min. most of the pain was gone. It's been an hour and I can still feel it a little bit if I swallow hard.
This isn't my first cleanse and I'm not sure what to make of this. It sounds like an allergic reaction but I don't know. I'm going to call and get the list of ingredients so I can start figuring it out.
Anyone have a similar experience? Do food allergies start to randomly show their heads sometimes?

I was feeling fine enough a little while ago so I thought I'd take a bite or two of my raw tostada that I got at WF. It started giving me the same reaction. Either there is a common ingredient I'm allergic to or my body is saying no solids yet.
Last time I did solids too soon though my stomach was the part of my body that revolted not my throat.

When I first went raw, I often experienced an upset stomach and burning throat whenever I ate nuts. It has gotten better, but even now, I find that they do not always agree with me.
BTW, how long was your fast, and when did you complete it? If it was just recently, you may want to stick with less complex dishes for a while. ~ Cathy

I'm familiar with the stomach issues when first going raw. Mine was all topsy turvy. Burning throat... not so much.
I did a 10 day stint which usually doesn't give me any problems at all - even when I did a 10 day water fast. I completed it a few days ago.
I had problems breaking my first cleanse. I ate foods that were too tough on the digestive system and didn't chew well. Big mistake. I was nauseous and had stomach pains. What I'm experiencing now is totally different. It literally felt like my throat was closing. It hurt like I was swallowing glass.
I'm going back to the cleanse for a few more days. I still don't know what to make of it. I had some guacamole and bananas tonight with no problems. I threw the other food away. My throat hurts to even look at it.
