  1. So I am on day 30 (yay!) but I think I have bronchitis after a bad cold last week. Anyway, I'm feeling pretty achey and blegh coughing all day and night, getting not very much sleep. Would it be better to wait to do reintroductions when I am over this bug and can really watch how my body is feeling without the added side effects of my cold and whatever medicine I am taking? Right now I am taking a steroid (prednisone) and something to help get rid of mucus.

    Cough Medicine

    So, my doctor prescribed an antibiotic and a cough syrup on Monday for my bronchitis and sinus infection. I started taking the antibiotic right away but I resisted the syrup until last night, knowing it had some form of sweetener in it. I finally caved and took it last night because coughing fits were keeping me from sleeping. I've been drinking Throat Coat tea and lemon water but I don't have a sore throat, just deep, rumbly coughing fits that are the hallmark of bronchitis. I know that a doctor's orders trump the requirements of the Whole30, but does this mean I need to re-start (again)? The syrup was still quite bitter but I know it was not compliant. It definitely did NOT awaken the sugar dragon, though. Appreciate any insight. Thanks, -Lauren (GGG)
  3. Hi all! I have googled and searched these forums for a lot of help throughout my first Whole 30 but haven't quite found the answer to this one. Starting Day 7 up until today, Day 14, I have had a horrible cough which has turned into what feels like a sinus infection. Since it just started with sore throat, I did search for that and found that a few people have had some silent reflux issues. So, I started taking some Prilosec. It seemed to work a bit but obviously wasn't the source of the problem since it's been about a week that's probably not it. I also searched and found quite a lot of people saying that the sore throat and stuffy nose aren't part of the carb flu. So that was out. So, to continue with the rambling, yesterday I went for a run. I run with a ton of people who have done Whole 30s. One of them is an ENT and suggested, after I told her I itched like crazy up until day 5, that this ickiness I am having could just be a heightened histamine reaction. I do love bananas and eggs and have had at least one of each since day 1. What do you think? Could this be a rough histamine reaction to my diet change or am I just sick (The weather was cold and rainy after lots of heat where I live this past week as well). Thanks for any help!
  4. Hey all! So I am a first-timer on day 6 of my Whole30. I am LOVING so much about it already, and so excited to see the health benefits of this new way of eating and relating to food. But here is the issue...pretty much since day 1, I have had this dry, persistent cough! It's not painful, but it is ANNOYING! At first I thought it might be an allergy to a particular food I've been consuming more of, like eggs or nuts. So for a couple days I cut those out, and no improvement! Other than those items, I haven't really introduced anything new to my diet with the Whole30 -- only cut stuff out. Has anyone else experienced this? I also thought it could be a symptom of detox...but after searching the forum I don't see many people who have dealt with it. Just a background -- I was diagnosed with asthma a couple years ago, which manifested in a very similar, dry, wheezy type of cough. I used an inhaler for a few months and then it gradually remedied itself as I treated my allergies and improved my diet. But this honestly hasn't been an issue for a while -- I can't remember the last time I used my inhaler, but I have had to since this started! Any suggestions?? Thanks! Lacers

    contracted a nasty cough

    I'm on day 11 and doing great, however I have contracted a nasty cough from a co-worker...boooooooo! I am drinking herbal tea like it is going out of style but I'm wondering is there any sort of OTC cough reliever that is Whole 30 compliant? I'm feeling pretty rough and I am fighting this thing like a pro-boxer but I think I'm going to need more than tea to kick this. Ninja cold fighting skills would be great right about now.
  6. I was wondering if anyone had experience with a histamine reaction early on. I've developed a wheezy productive cough since day 2 that feels a bit like asthma, and some intermittent sneezing and post-nasal drip that seems to be worse after eating then resolves (congested bronchi feeling stays though). I've had very mild seasonal allergies in the distant past, and have a slight mold allergy. I've never had any kind of noticeable reaction to anything I've eaten before, and at first I thought it was possibly a "healing crisis" carb flu type reaction to not eating dairy or grains. (I've done low carb before but always with full fat dairy and a little whole grain (like Kavli crackers). The is the first time I've ever been dairy and grain free.) Has anyone ever heard of a histamine reaction to foods like almonds or coconut? I'll list my four days below in case anyone has any ideas. Other than some nausea, which resolved, I've been feeling pretty great except for the allergy symptoms. I'm coming off of a really terrible carb, sugar and PUFA laden diet. This seems to be getting worse, so I'm not sure if I should let it run it's course (if it's more of a detox symptom) or medicate (benadryl) or try to lay off the nuts and coconut (which would really be depressing). I guess I'm leaning towards wait and see, watch and wait, but after my last meal, I'm getting some swelling in the roof of my mouth, so I don't want to aggravate any possible developing allergy by keeping on with the food. Anyone have any thoughts about differentiating allergies from detox symptoms? Thanks for the expert advice folks! I love this forum.... Day One 1. coffee with coconut oil 2. Baby greens and tuna 3.
