Throat issue when taking bee pollen

by Jeanne

I have been taking bee pollen pills for 10 weeks. In the last 5 weeks, I have been dealing with the feeling that there is something caught in my throat all the time, having difficulty swallowing. I feel like my throat is smaller or tight. I am awaiting test results but in the meantime, came across this web page.

Also, I had a routinte colonsocopy and the doctor said my colon was discolored like I was taking massive amounts of laxatives. I asked if this could be from the bee pollen an he said no, that i had to stop taking the laxatives. I told him that I have never taken them in my life an he rolled his eyes and said, thats what they all say. Is there any chance the pollen can cause the colon to turn color from just a few months of taking it?

Hi Jeanne,
It sounds to me like you are having an allergic reaction to the bee pollen. I would discontinue use and see if the feeling in your throat subsides.
What brand of bee pollen are you taking? A certain popular brand of bee pollen puts laxatives in their product and most people have no idea that it is in there.

The Bee Pollen is not hurting you but it does get stuck in throat.

I take bee pollen , 3 tablespoons of it and wash it down with water, and I am trying to figure out how to get it down my throat. I experience the same thing every time a Take it but the unpleasantness all ways rights itself eventually. I don't know your medaical history but I do know that cancer, diabedies and practically every other disease has been cured with fasting and the russians proved it. Just Google your ailment cured by fasting, raw vegan diet, megadosing vitamin C, making your own lypolsolmal vitamin C, and Haritaki powder. with this info you will seldom if at all need a doctor. With this info reconstructive surgery from a car accident is the only thing from the hospital you would ever need as this diet clears the arteries in two weeks and fasting is the best deconstructive surgery there is. Just make sure to stick to fruits for a while after a long ter fast 10 days or more, and work other foods in verry slowly in small amounts. People can fast as long as they have access to cells the body does not need for survival like fat, moles, tumors, anything that is not functioning properly can be burned for fuel on a cellular level. You are not actually starving when you feel hungry but when you experience a physical pain on the roof of your mouth, than there is no more benefit to be gained by going without food. An obese man went an entire year waterfasting, nothing but water and some vitamins, and it was healthy all the way. bee pollen is the most nutritious raw plant food and raw unfiltered honey has the most enzymes so the combo should be the foundation of any raw vegan diet. I just need to figure out how to pass it through my throte more smoothly. lol. Hope this info is helpful. Blessings.

Swallowing issues
by: Anonymous

I'm glad someone else posted about a swallowing issue. I took the original bee pollen diet pills back in August 2012 for 3 months. Worked greated. Ever since I've been having swallowing issues and severe headaches. I'm now going to see a neurologist for this problem. So, no it wasn't an allergic reaction. It's something in the 'wonder pill.' I also know 2 other women from my hometown that are having similar problems with swallowing. Please be careful! This is an issue I need to deal with for the rest of my life now just so I could lose a bit of weight!

Thank you for posting and I'm sorry that you've experienced this. You are correct - one of the ingredients in these bee pollen diet pills is causing severe side effects. We get reports of this all the time. I don't think it is the bee pollen causing this but one of the other ingredients that these manufacturers hide in them. Consumers are being mislead - they think they are taking plain old bee pollen when in fact they are taking several other, often dangerous ingredients.

I can't say it enough - read my article on how to lose weight with bee pollen BUT safely through safe, scientifically proven supplements and little known nutrition tips.

Bee healthy,

throat an bee pollen
by: Anonymous

I have since stopped taking the bee pollen and my throat is almost back to normal, after going to a doctor, having blood work and a throat ultrasound. Also, after taking bee pollen for approx 11 weeks, my colon is turned brown.
