Health Issues – Chronic Urticaria – Thank you, Joe Cross!
Okay, here we go again! Grinning! 🙂
Once again, out of my misery, begins another chapter of healing and increasing wellness.
To summarize: I’ve been unwell, even sick a LOT in my life since age 5 when I first contracted pneumonia and was allergic to the penicillin the doctor put me on. Also I trace my sugar addiction back to age 5 which makes sense – 2 rounds of antibiotics – one penicillin with allergy – one a sulfa drug safely – of course caused screwed up healthy pathogens balance in my body – might say the beginning of sick, antibiotics, yeast infections and hives, etc,etc.
Some of the illnesses I’ve had besides the ones that were expected when I was a kid in the 50s (chicken pox, measles, rubella, mumps – any others?) several annual bouts with infected ears often with abscesses, bronchitis, strep throat, pneumonia; later on appendicitis, multiple skin “conditions” and prone to fungal rashes, asthma, atopical dermatitis, influenza, hypothyroid with adenoma, fibroids breast and uterus several times, breast cancer, acoustic neuroma, bacterial meningitis, multiple cases of cellulitis, gall bladder illness, appendicitis, still have tonsils and adenoids miraculous – major recurring depression, anxiety disorder, sugar addiction, multiple food & environmental allergies, IBS, GERD, hiatal hernia, sleep apnea, hypertension, and borderline diabetes – have been alcohol-free for 29 years after recognition I was in early stages of alcoholism….there must be more – but really! ! ! – OH lifelong obesity, And I come out as healthy after all the typical medical tests and screens – in 1990 I was first time treated for acute and recurring candidiasis – now 25 years later I think I’m really getting to things here – “things” meaning an understanding with a treatment – natural foods and juices!
(link for movies Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, also Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead 2, both with Joe Cross, both excellent and worth watching.)
Thank you, Joe Cross! I’m watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead – the first one – and I think Joe told me what my most recent medical issue is – chronic urticaria! I’ve a long history of allergies to begin with – I know I get hives from pressure and heat, too. Since Feb, 2015 I’ve had an odd “rash” – more of a skin condition really – I get bumps and they itch terribly and swell more and itch more – they are not insect bites – one poor friend had the humiliating experience of telling me she’d had an outbreak of bedbugs in her house 6 months before, and as I stayed at her house the first night of waking up in the morning with these itchy bumpy rashes she was fearful she might have them back – NOT! Since I have chronic lymphedema in both arms and trunk, and have had recurring cellulitis as a result these itchy places put me at high risk of another life threatening cellulitis 😦 So finally I saw my doctor who couldn’t tell what was going on with me because I’d scratched everything so badly – it started left arm went to left leg, then right leg and trunk – the second time all of me got involved including right arm, neck and face. Because of the high risk of another cellulitis he gave me an antibiotic and prednisone again – guess what? they all went away and came back 2 weeks later for round 2 of meds and they also went away again. They’ve been back for a while now and this time I’m choosing NO MEDS for them but what the heck are they? Well, I’ve had hives a lot, and this very day when watching Joe Cross 1 again the light bulb went on so I searched with Google – lo and behold I’m certain enough to tell my PCP I’ve figured out, with my history, what is going on with me. I’m going to finally start juicing again asap and exclude all known food allergens as well. ! ! !
