Is Vegan diet possible with multiple food allergies and IBD?

#1 Postby tarrstar » Fri Dec 09, 2005 2:05 am

:oops: Hi everyone,

Im looking for honest and unbiased opinions on whether a vegan diet is possible for an individual who is suffering extreme food allergies to most of the vegan protein sources including

peanuts,cashews,sunflower seeds,sesame,walnuts,cashew

soy beans,pinto beans,broad beans,lima beans,fava,and most legumes

my diet is limited to rice,quinoa,vegetables,and i dont tolerate raw vegetables or fruit,due to a digestive disorder and candida yeast,dysbiosis of the gut!

im so tired of the lack of variety,and trying to cook with no soy,beans,wheat,nuts is so hard,and nothing turns out right...

how can this possibly be healthy???

What about fermented soy... like tempeh maybe?

I miss brazil nuts. I've got a few decent sized nut/seed allergies. They can be a challenge to work around.

Hi tarrstar,

that sounds hard!

Have you tried fasting, raw food and hydro colon therapy? I think you should try to get healthy first. Allergies and IBD can be cured. Part of it is psychological. Find yourself a decent natural medicine therapist.

Get well soon,
love and peace,
No one said it would be easy.

Hey man, sorry to hear about your situation, that's got to be irritating. In my opinion, so long as you are getting the nutrients, you are healthy. You say you are eating cooked vegetables, which are great sources of vitamins and good for digestion.

What advice have doctors given you, regarding your conditions and how you might be cured of (some of) them?

Sorry to hear about your difficulties. IMO Daywalker gave some good advice that I would follow. Also, what about chick peas, butter beans, sea vegetables and lentils ? Are you allergic to any of those ?
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.
