THE DANGERS OF EATING CHEDDAR CHEESE A Personal Testimony!
First of all, I must,must thank God for bringing me to this Truth that is of Thusia Seventh-Day Adventist; this Truth that I pray all men come to. Because of our health reform message I am able to identify many of the things that I was eating and didn't know was killing me. YHWH in His infinite mercy brought me to this Church for the sole purpose of saving my life and I'm grateful for that. Many years ago,when I first came to Thusia, I was suffering with blinding headaches- migraine headaches. So bad were these headaches that I would get severe nose bleeds, vomiting, diarrhea ,nausea, really bad flatulence. One Wednesday evening, approximately 10 yrs ago, I went to church meeting. On that day I was battling a migraine headache which was in the early stages. I had the nausea, bloated stomach and blinding headache.
My dear Sis S on seeing my distress asked me what was wrong and I told her about the headache that I was fighting. Sis S looked at me and said, "what did you eat today?". I told her that I had eaten macaroni pie with peas. She went on to explain to me that it could be the cheese causing the headaches. She told me to stop eating cheese for two weeks,take a purge to reboot my system and then try eating a little piece of cheese and see what happens. I did as I was instructed. My dear Sis, after I did the cleanse I went and took a piece of cheese-no bigger than the very tip of your baby finger nail- and swallowed it. Sis, that tiny piece of cheese put me down for three days with migraine. As a matter of fact as soon as the cheese touched my tongue I started to feel queasy, and Sis that was when I realised that after years,from the age of five or so, I have been suffering with these headaches and no one could have told me the reason; not even so called specialists. It took the teachings of health reform that Sis S adhered to to pinpoint the source of my agony. My dear Sis I don't have to tell you that I have never eaten cheese from then until now. So from that day until now, almost eleven years later, I've been migraine free only through the grace of YHWH and this wonderful health reform message. May the love of YHWH continue to be with you as we move forward in this great, grand controversy.
Editor's note: It has been established by Doctors that certain foods trigger migraine headaches including aged cheeses (containing tyramine) such as mentioned above by Sis. P, cultured dairy products (yogurt, sour cream etc) and processed meat (salami, pepperoni, hot dogs etc which contain nitrates and nitrites). Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Chocolate and Caffeine are also known triggers of Migraine headaches and Doctors encourage their elimination where this is the case.
