Food Allergies/Throat Clearing


Thank you in advance for your time.  I have had a throat clearing issue for over 10 yrs now and I'm at my breaking point!  I feel that it is related to my diet but can seem to pinpoint it.  It is always worse just after I eat (regardless of what I eat#.  I have ruled out post-nasal drip and the ENT doc told me stop drinking caffiene - it didn't help. I don't have any allergies that I know of - but haven't been fully tested.  Do you know of any patients where food sensitivity was the cause?  Are there any conditions of that you know of that could be the cause?    I'm concerned about the long term effect of not finding the cause or cure of this #esp w/ such an increase in esophogeal cancer etc)
Thank you!!!

Throat clearing after eating definitely indicates you have some food intolerance issues. Have them check your blood for IgG which is food intolerances. You said they checked for IgE food allergies and did not detect any food allergies. Go see a NAET practitioner and they will help you attenuate your intolerances and sensitivities.

Good luck

I can answer questions related to nutrition, food allergies and food sensitivities, how to identify and avoid genetically modified ingredients, leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, gluten intolerance or celiac disease, autism spectrum disorder, ADD, ADHD, vitamin and mineral supplements, sports nutrition, diet, exercise and I specialize in a technique called "NAET" which involves muscle testing people for food allergies and then applying acupressure to the spine to attenuate food or environmental allergies.


I have been teaching nutrition in a University setting for the past 20 years. I have been practicing NAET since Summer, 2012.
