Bee pollen and 'silent allergies'?

by Sandra

Hello Angela,

I remember reading somewhere a while back that prolonged use of bee pollen can induce an intolerance in the body that wears away at joint tissues. Although I can't recall who funded the study, it was enough to get me thinking. Have you come across any literature that confirms this?

Also, I didn't get around to reading your detailed protocol when I began to take bee pollen, and started with a two tablespoons of pollen right away. Needless to say, after a few days of this I had a reaction, and went to your site for help. Do you think that if I start over I'll still build 'immunity'? And the dose is measured by the maximum amount you can take without having a reaction, correct?

Sorry for the hidden questions, :P

Sandra.

Hi Sandra,
With continuous daily use of any food you can build intolerance so yes, this is possible with bee pollen. And yes, if you start over so to speak with bee pollen, you should be able to build immunity to the pollen over time. I would urge you to start our very slowly with only a few granules at a time and only after no reaction whatsoever would you increase your dose.

Bee healthy,
Angela
