I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value.

Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more

When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more
