I'm not sure, but wouldn't it be because of worms?

Not sure if it is an allergy or lyme, but Peanuts, peanut oil, or peanut butter all cause extreme inflamation in my sons joints and he is in a lot of pain. Once we took peanut products out of his diet he has a lot less pain.

Umm...would like an answer...the Lyme cook book has alot with nuts..and a recipe for PButter cookie's!!

Could it be that some people who have already be sensitive to nuts...The Lyme increases??????

I seem to be ok...have not tried penut butter sandwiches...since I got lyme...used to live on the stuff.....but too much sugar!

I willing to try it again, but with no sugars..Now I wonder if I am taking a chance?????

Hoping Cmany may see this post, wonder what her take would be???

anybody,??????

Some anti-yeast diets have peanuts listed as a food to avoid.

Found a link, it says because they are "thought to have mold contamination"

On my diet from my lyme doc, I am not allowed nuts. Only a small amount of almonds per day. I can have pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds.

I am not allergic to nuts.
