I had 3 tbsp’s of oatbran about an hour ago and I’m experiencing a slight feeling in my head. Nothing major but its definitely there although I was looking out for a reaction, so that in itself doesnt help because I could be imagining it. Dont think I am though.
Searching through the forum about this, I found Hal123’s topic which mentions Hal’s reaction to Mornflake Oatbran. I googled this and it says it contains only 100% oatbran, just like mine by Tesco.
In response to this, Able said “it was either feeding the Candida, depending on the type, or an allergic reaction more than likely.”
I also read that in time you learn to work out whether reactions are die off or intolerance reactions and I understand I have to get used to that.
But to clarify,
1) if i feel something, ANYTHING with the oatbran, does that means I’m allergi0c to it?
2) The oatbran we both have must be fine if it only contains oatbran??? I cant get Bobs Red Mill oatbran on Amazon UK so any other brand I try could be just the same. 3) Or would organic be better?
4) If i’m experiencing allergic reactions do I still give it a week or so and try it again later?May 10, 2012 at 6:04 am #81434

The Mornflake one I saw in Sainsbury’s said it contains gluten and traces of nuts and seedsMay 10, 2012 at 8:41 am #81451

Bob’s red mill products are very superior to almost anything else out there; organic food products are a must on the diet if you want to get healthier faster. I believe that you could be reacting to the oat bran because it isn’t bob’s red mill brand and possibly because it isn’t organic. One of the reasons I have gotten healthier so quickly is because I have gone all organic with my diet (except my lunchtime salad).
I would give it a try in a few weeks to see if any reaction, but you likely will get a reaction throughout your treatment.
I used to react to non-organic sysco chicken that has antibiotics and hormones in it, so all I gotta say is go organic!

Thanks Raster. I will buy organic oatbran instead.
So when buying it, should it be free from gluten and nuts and everything else except oats or will I always get some of that stuff mentioned in the allergy advice?May 11, 2012 at 2:36 am #81522

I am not sure if it’s gluten or not but I would stay away from it. I felt the same as you, kind of a sensation in my head and was sure that I was just getting anxiety over the test food. I kept eating it. In time I started having problems with my muscles, neurological issues etc. At first I thought it’s die-off, but as I cut out all antifungals and these symptoms persisted and kind of just persisted with different intensity but not going away, I am pretty sure it’s food reaction and now I am trying to figure out what it is. I cut oat bran out trying to determine what it is. I used it in my bread as well sometimes I would feel the same eating the bread. So I had to cut out buckwheat also to see if this is what it is.
FYI I had the same response with organic one imported from Germany.
I did not test as gluten sensitive, but perhaps I developed that a bit later.
You decide what to do and if your symptoms do get worse or you start getting other unexplained symptoms, I would be careful about it. I was of opinion that food sensitivity would come as hives, diarrhea, sneezing etc, but apparently it could come as any other symptom.

Another thing is oats and grains can have a negative effect on the body by making it acidic, blood that is, leaving ash and amino acids like allot of carbs. Just thought I would throw it out there for people who are sensitive.May 11, 2012 at 11:19 am #81557
I’ll leave it completely then. I was sensitive to gluten and wheat before the diet and it does seem too soon to be testing it anyway. I’ll just give it a miss for a few months and try coconut bread for carbs instead first.
