When my daughter was about 2 wks. old she started to get a stuffy nose and within days was not able to breathe through her nostrils except for when she was nursing (amazingly...God's ways!). So we started researching and I went dairy free. I didn't eat anything that might possibly contain dairy including plain bread at a restaurant etc. Within 2 weeks she had thick green mucous (sorry, a bit gross) pouring out of her tear ducts and nostrils that had finally loosened up and released from her sinuses. I lost weight overnight and felt terrific. I later started adding yogurt and butter back into my diet after well-meaning people told me I was lactose intolerant and those things, because of the processes they went through, did not contain lactose (total ignorance on my part). I found lactose free cheese etc. and thought I was doing great. Then the problems started up for me again and I found out later that what is actually causing the mucous(which harbors infection and will lead to ear infections etc.) is the milk protein. Milk protein comes in different forms and you will find it in many "non-dairy" items. The most common are sodium caseinate, caseinate and whey. If you have problems with muscous then these are the things to steer clear of in my experience. I am not dairy free any more but should be. I know I'd drop the weight I have put back on and clear out my sinuses again! I also took my other 2 children off of dairy when we discovered the connection for my daughter and myself and found that my oldest stopped having constant colds and my middle child finally started having bowel movements on the toilet (he was completely potty trained, 3 yrs. old, but refused to have a b.m. on the toilet!). It literally happened within days for him so I know it wasn't just "time" for him to make the change!

You are also correct to call it an intolerance versus an allergy. An allergy to food is often life threatening. I'm not a physician, nurse etc. but have looked into this because of the effect it was having on my daughter.

Hope this info helps you!
