I am also allergic to some foods & chemicals eg

ASPARTAME
NITRATES – (nitrites)
SULPHITES
ROOT BEER & COKE
VERY STRONG ODORS eg Bleach ( but it is ONLY if is very strong & in a confined space)
ROSEMARY
SAGE
GLUTAMINE

CERTAIN FOOD COLOURINGS EG RED & YELLOW FOOD DYES.
+ a few other things that excite the brain


Thanks Craig
