    Has anyone had any luck overcoming food allergies with transfer factor? I am allergic to so many foods and have hypoglycemia and hypothyroidism, both of which require lots of protein, and I am allergic to so many of these protein sources, and I need to eat several small high-protein meals per day? Thanks

    Allergic to the protein sources that you need. I am sorry but I don't have any information to offer. I am not allergic to foods (that I know of) but I do stay away from all the "white" stuff I possibly can. But that is because it can keep the immune system from shifting and it promotes candida growth.

    I am sorry that I can't help....

    Gentle hugs...

    Thanks for the hugs. I'm taking probiotics and grapefruit seed extract for candida, and try to avoid sugarey foods, but I have these allergies, too, so it is so complicated.

    It would make sense that transfer factor could be an immune modulator and help the immune system from over-reacting.

    Anyone else know?

    Hello mediationlotus,

    I'm not sure if I can help you but I wanted to share what has happened to me just in case it gave you some thought.

    Evidentally since I came down with CFIDS/FM symptoms I have also become very intolerant to many proteins. If I stray from a very narrow path I am on as far as food consumption or supplements I have a bad reaction. It feels like my brain swells and I get a horrible headache in my temples and around my eyes and also causes toothpain. I feel less energy and more malaise. Sometimes a queasy tummy.

    I had this reaction when I ate dairy products, nuts, various other foods, whey protein, thyroid meds, & transfer factor. My ND told me that I appear to have a protein intolerance.

    We told my story to a friend recently who happens to be a pet nutrition specialist and is very knowledgeable about natural remedies. She suggested I try a product called Seacure to help overcome the intolerances, etc. Now I don't know if it works or not yet. I have been on it for 4 days. I do know when I first took it (1/3 the recommended dose) my brain swelling symptoms decreased. This is a positive sign for me. I have not had any bad reactions to it yet.

    It is my hope that it will help me overcome my intolerances/allergies so that I will be able to proceed someday with transfer factors.

    Seacure is a highly effective nutritional support for digestive dysfunction, tissue damage, and protein-related conditions.

    Seacure is a dietary protein supplement made from Pacific Northwest deep water white fish. (I know that sounds like a zero helper. But when you read the literature about it and results from it you become impressed.) Basically this protein is in a more absorbable form - peptides which have potent biological activity, influencing hormonal, immune and neurologic functions which, in turn, affect both local (gut) and systemic physiology. It also has an oleoresin of the herb Rosemary to act as a natural anti-oxidant for the small amount of fish oil left in it. Mercury levels of it are below the threshold of detection of the test.

    Malnourished people have benefited from it as well as it has helped with crohn's disease, IBS, colitis. Also patients suffering from chronic wounds, immune deficiency, chronic fatigue syndrome and malnutrition associated with cancer chemotherapy. Basically chronically ill people with failed digestion, severe degree to lesser degree have been helped by it.

    If you are interested in it you could do a search and read about it. I'm not trying to sell anything... I'm on a quest to get well just like you. I am hoping this will be a step up for me and just wanted to share with you knowing how frusterating it is to be intolerant to so many things preventing us from getting the help we need.

    Blessings.

    It sounds promising. I will do a search for it and check it out. I'm glad it is helping you.

    and there has been a definite improvement with food allergies,
    My allergies
    Wheat and Gluten
    Peas,beans, peanuts
    soy
    my Chemical allergies, are still easily triggered, but the side effects have lessoned when exposed to chemicals.

    I give it the big thumbs up!
    Good luck

    That is encouraging to know. Which type of transfer factor do you take? Thanks.

    I take the 4 life TF, basic formula, 3 caps is a daily dose, I take 8 caps a day. I am looking at taking the Pro Health one, just advoiding it at the mo, because international delivery makes it more expensive.

    I am trying Moducare at the moment, and think I'm having some help with the food allergies, but want to add transfer factor when I can get more money together. It seems like a good product. Thanks for your input. If eight a day is what you take, that means you are spending a lot of money.But when it comes to our health, it is worth it.
