Told To Cut Out Cows Milk And Yeast! Very Worried About Having No Carbs And Dairy And My Energy Levels. What Can I Eat? Please Help!

Recently been told I must cut out cows milk (all dairy) and all yeast forever. Its an intolerance rather than an allergy, but already I'm feeling tired and running on empy. I just have no idea what I can and cannot eat. But also, what can I replace foods with so I don't miss out on important nutrients. Feeling very down about it all. Any advice would be highly welcomed. Thanks

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

What Medical Diagnosis Catagory Do I Fall Into?

I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more
