Some people report being allergic to a wide range of foods, including fish, chicken, beef, pork, cinnamon, and black pepper.
When I hear stories like that, the first thing I recommend is to do some testing rather than make assumptions. The most useful tests are a comprehensive stool analysis and a SIBO breath test. The type of test that will be most useful depends on the location of the problem. If the upper GI tract is causing you the most grief, then a SIBO breath test is a good starting point. If the problem seems to be in the small or large intestines, start with a comprehensive stool analysis.
Remember that a food allergy and food intolerance are different. Immune reactions are the basis of allergies. Intestinal reactions due to digestive enzyme dysfunction are what cause food intolerances. With food intolerance, it often involves the stomach or pancreas.

I’ve never seen anybody with an allergy to fish, chicken, beef, and pork all at the same time. I can say that after doing thousands of allergy tests. The blood is drawn, centrifuged, the serum is sent to a lab, and it’s checked for about 100 different food allergies. I’ve been doing this type of allergy testing for over 20 years and never come across all these meat allergies being present at the same time. I’ve seen some beef allergies and pork allergies on their own. I’ve seen some fish allergies, although only about one in a thousand. I’ve never seen a chicken allergy, but I have seen allergies to both duck and chicken eggs.
Do some testing. Go and see a doctor who can really help and get to the bottom of the problem. And remember, having a reaction to food doesn’t necessarily mean you have allergies. It could be food intolerance instead.
