    I have to take them regularly, and I know they suppress the immune system. Will they hinder progress?

    I’m in the same boat as you, needing to take allergy meds every day for mold, dust, etc., but never really thought about its effect on the diet, mostly because I knew that even if it had a negative impact on my progress, I had no choice but to continue taking them.

    I think they help more than hinder, personally. The keep the mucus production down, for one. I switched from the fairly mild Claritin (which I had been taking for years, but was slowly losing its efficacy) to Zyrtec after a month or so on the diet, and if anything I noticed increased improvement.

    I’d like to hear if anyone has any research on this topic.

    I took antihistamines for 6 months on and off and to think of the amount of money i spent thinking the whole time that i was alergic to my cats! Since i stoped eating sugar and dairy and taking candisol my alergy symptoms are much better i don ‘t feel the need for antihistamine i feel like the just dried me out so much and then cause sever pain all through my cheek bones and temples. I would quit them and drink lots of water and add more garlic to my diet… i wish that was my issue i’m at die off stage and taking day off work today as i was dizzy nauseause weak and confused yeasterday and did naot want to deal with the embarrasment of being useless at work today.

    Good luck india!

    Oh really? I’m pretty certain I’m allergic to dogs, and being on the diet for a month now the allergy hasn’t got any better.

    I doubt a month on the diet would make much of a dent in your seasonal/pet/environmental allergies (after a month I was barely seeing a change in my candida-related symptoms, after all). After four months, however, I think my allergies may have gotten better, although that could just be because I switched medications and it’s winter right now. However, I’d like to think the diet could alleviate allergies too!
