I am on day three of my first whole30. I normally take an off brand version of Zyrtec (as recommended by my doctor) every day because I have year round allergy symptoms (scratchy or itchy throat, runny nose, stuffy nose etc.). I realized on day one that my off brand antihistamine contains corn starch and that’s a no go for Whole30. So I went and bought a different one but just found it contains glycerin which is also a no. I need help! Anyone have an over the counter antihistamine that does not contain anything from the no list??? I tried to just go without taking any allergy meds at all for the last three days but am now suffering for it. I’m on Whole30 to figure out a possible mild allergy that is causing my skin to break out and my eczema to worsen if that helps for context.
Hi all- I'm currently on Day 23 and have been feeling great until today. I was not very hungry this morning, but forced myself to have a simple breakfast (eggs, bacon, strawberries). About an hour later I grabbed an apple because I was both hungry and not hungry at the same time, but have usually had apples in the past when I've got some nausea and they've helped. After that my appetite and energy took a nose dive. I laid in bed for 3 hours and couldn't imagine another piece of food. My boyfriend suggested grabbing me a cold pressed juice that has worked in the past for my tummy issues (which are very frequent). After drinking most of it, I took a shower and within 15 minutes ended up throwing up everything I ate today (even the breakfast from 8+ hours ago... they were still solid food items). Currently drinking fresh ginger with a little lemon and took out some veggie broth soup I had in the freezer. My boyfriend and family are suggesting I also dose up on some medicine (specifically peptobismal). I want to stay on track, cuz i've been feeling great and have been looking forward to a slow re-introduction period, but I am also a professor and may have to teach 3 classes tomorrow. Any suggestions on if this is okay or not and if it's okay, are there preferred kinds (i.e. liquid/non-cherry over tablets). I saw tums was not approved, but then saw a peptobismal post where it seemed kinda iffy. Thanks!
