Hi Leslie - I do just fine with my Nature's Way pill each night. I was diagnosed with a milk allergy as a baby. I almost died when I was a week old. I couldn't keep cow's milk down. This was back when mother's didn't nurse their babies (obviously!). My mom had to put me on soy milk. As I grew up I could tolerate milk here and there. Not daily, I never wanted milk as my beverage choice. If I have a fried egg sandwich I feel so nauseous, for example. So I know what to avoid and what not to. I can have milk in recipes, eggs in recipes, just not all by themselves. Odd isn't it? I had a food sensitivity panel done last year, I tested the highest for dairy, slightly lower for eggs. I had been eating 2 or 3 cups of Stonyfield vanilla yogurt each day. And was feeling ill but not all out sick. I put two and two together and knew the culprit - milk. So this is why I just avoid yogurt all together now.
And oddly enough again, I realize that eggs and dairy are not one and the same. But both in their pure forms, except for a hard boiled egg, bother my system.
