Finally! This is the moment I have long been waiting for: baby feeds on me while I feed on pizza!!! 🍕🍕🍕 . For the past year, ever since I learned that I am intolerant to certain foods, I have been avoiding rice, dairy, potatoes, breads and anything that has wheat in it (except pasta made of pure durum wheat semolina which I am not intolerant to). . Scientific studies have shown that when we eat foods that we are intolerant to, it causes certain inflammation and delayed onset allergic reactions in our body which could include allergic rhinitis, migraines, skin irritations and the like. It could also possibly lead to other chronic health conditions in the future. In my case, any inflammation in my body may have been a reason for infertility and other effects that may trigger a reaction that could worsen my APAS condition and lead to further complications in my pregnancy. I learned what those foods are by taking the Food Intolerance blood test from Hi Precision Diagnostics. . Now that I have given birth, I can finally got to treat myself to some much anticipated pizza! Yummm!!! . Tomorrow, I’m back to my regular programming but today, I shall indulge. Happy Sunday! . #SundayIndulgenceDay #CelebratingLife #ElijahDay1 #MyAsianStory
Quiambao shared that in the past year, she avoided certain foods that make her intolerant such as rice, dairy, potatoes and bread or “anything that has wheat in it.” However, she exempted pasta “made of pure durem” from her list.
Why was she avoiding such foods? She cited findings of scientific studies that when people eat foods that they are intolerant to, it causes “inflammation and delayed onset allergic reactions,” which could include allergic rhinitis and migraine, among others. “It could possibly lead to chronic health conditions in the future,” she added.
She went on that in her case, any inflammation in her body “may have been a reason for infertility and other effects that may trigger a reaction that could worsen my APAS condition and lead to further complications in my pregnancy.”
Quiambao previously shared she suffered from Obstetric APAS/APS (Antiphospholipid Antibody), which is an autoimmune disorder associated with pregnancy complications.
“Now that I have given birth, I can finally got to treat myself to some much anticipated pizza!” she expressed on how elated she was to eat the dish.
