Reaction to chicken

Ever since I was about 6 or 7 years old I would vomit if I ate chicken or turkey (or presumably any other poultry, but that is something that I never tested). Simply solution - do not eat poultry.

Upon getting married, this allergy would become a problem for my wife and family since special accomodations have to be made if a chicken meal is planned. Again, it did not bother me, but understandably my wife grew tired of cooking two different meals, so we started to eat meals with other meats.

Now, the funny thing about this reaction is that shortly after eating chicken, my mouth waters and I soon vomit. Immediately after that I am fine - and hungry :)

While I was deployed to Iraq, I decided to try chicken to see if I could kick this thing (my wife is convinced it is all in my head). I enjoyed the chicken and had none of the symptoms that I described. I began to eat chicken a couple times a week (grilled chicken breast was my favorite). Of course my wife was very happy about this.

Our happiness was short lived when, upon my return home (after 15 months away) my reactions to chicken reappeared within a couple meals both at home and restaurants (to be sure my wife's cooking was the cause).

So now I am once again unable to eat poultry products. But I am interested in finding out why I have this reaction, why it went away, why it came back and is there something i can do about it.

One thing that I considered was that I was not eating chicken during my deployment, but I quickly dismissed that idea. However I have considered that perhaps the chickens were raised outside the US and perhaps there is something in the way the chickens are raised or processed. If that is the case, perhaps the reaction is to something other than the chicken but some additive instead.

Does anyone have ideas? I would appreciate any suggestions.

  • some chickens are fed hormones and antibiotics to make them fat & healthy which could be what you are reacting to.I expect they may not be able to afford to feed chickens hormones in iraqor simply have more natural methods of raising chickens.which might explain why you were able to eat chickens in iraq try eating a organic chicken ( raised & fed naturally) and see if there is any reaction

Which means, if you happen to be allergic to something else and you are exposed to it at the same time that you eat chicken, the body has to allocate resources to fight a limited number of the allergens at one time.The Allergy is not in your mind- the roots of it is in emotions, toxins, pathogens you were exposed to, etc.You can clear that allergy with NAET. It works wonders.Best

  • I am promoting it because it has helped me tremendously with my illness the past few years. I have nothing to do with Dr. Devi Nambudripad, who is the discoverer of NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique). There are many paths to healing, and I've tried many. I am an Oriental Medical practitioner and have treated countless people who have virtually given up and their docs have thrown up their hands. NAET is the only treatment I have found which actually eliminates an allergy. www.naet.com if you care to read more about it. Best wishesDOM
