Reactions to food

Recommended Posts

When I have bone broth or collagen I get the worst headache and brain fog, I feel dizzy to the point of needing to lie down and do nothing. Also, when I eat broccoli I’m keeled over in pain for hours. What’s the deal?

The reaction to broth or collagen is not one I've heard of before, but you can definitely just skip having those, or if you only have that reaction when you drink them on their own you may still be able to use them in recipes. 

As far as the broccoli, if it's gas pain, that sounds like a fairly extreme version of a common reaction. Some people react that way to cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, or cabbage. Some people have a fairly mild reaction, some discomfort and gas, others can be more extreme. Cooking those vegetables really well can help sometimes, and sometimes reactions seem to depend on the quantity eaten, so maybe you can have a small serving every two or three days and be fine, but larger servings or having small servings every day might cause issues.
