Hi all, new to the group. I have some strange symptoms for the past 2-3 years of itchiness on arms; it's not always the same place and it is very intermittent. The dermatologist says it is not hives and it's not a rash. The only thing that relieves my severe itchiness is ice packs. Dermatologist thought it was neurologic (pinched nerve) so I went to neurologist. She found nothing.
I do have some allergies, basic hayfever, and rare bouts with asthma, but have severe reaction to rye grass when it seeds out (blooms). Everywhere a rye grass seed touches my skin it creates a hive. Something happened today that made me think it could be related to alcohol. I mix vodka (various brands) with alot of different beverages, but today after a small amount of vodka in sprite, I had a ferocious itchy arm. I started researching allergic reactions to various types of alcohol. Also, I have not been diagnosed with celiac disease, but do find that gluten products bother my digestive system. I have not really noticed any other types of alcohol causing this, but certainly will watch. In researching today I see that many vodkas are made from gluten products, and also RYE. I will move to the non-gluten, non-rye vodkas to see if the symptoms stop.
The only odd thing is I don't break out in hives, there is absolutely nothing you can see on my skin, but after I scratch, a teeny little red spot (just 1 or 2) can be seen and then the spot bleeds. Again, different spots in different parts of my arm. And usually just one arm section, not all of my arm(s). Any other ideas? Am I on the right track? I think I will call dermatologist back and get a skin prick test as I read in some of the other posts.
I eat between four to ten 7oz cans of undrained chunk tuna every week and have been for at least 3 years, plus regularly my whole life. I have had the same mild reaction 3 times in the past month: Very slight headache, mostly in the forehead and face, and a very mild, warm tingling in the face as well. This lasts maybe 5 minutes and is mild but noticeable. This also happened a few days ago when I ate some sort of white fish from a buffet. I had the reaction both with canned tuna packed in water and packed with vegetable broth (discovered when I read the label).
Is there some mysterious component that I should be aware of? I am an omnivorous urban adult with no history of food allergies.
Everyone I eat some certain food, my sinuses get so inflamed and swell up so much that I cannot breathe through my nose at all. I'm trying to narrow down the food or ingredient. I noticed it happens a lot when I eat Chinese with noodles like chow mien (although I'm not certain). Has anyone else has this and determines what it was? I've tried googling a bunch, but nothing seems to add up. Help me solve this! Thanks :)
I don't often eat mollusks but when I do I become violently ill. After the last time I ate a tin of oysters and got super sick about two hours later I was kind of expecting it, but it was worse than I thought. It also happened after eating mussles and cuttlefish I cooked myself, oysters at Olive Garden and clams in Mexico. My thing is, tho, I've never had a reaction to shrimp or crab but obviously I'm avoiding shellfish now. I really want to eat crab but I really don't want to spontaneously puke on myself in public again. The reaction is vomiting and diarrhea for hours. Did I just get food poisoning five times in a row? I convinced myself of that until the last time.
The real cause of allergies and how to get rid of them.
First I have to tell you a big open secret: ALL allergies and intolerances of any kind are psychosomatic disorders. Once you understand this FACT you can get rid of your allergies fast and with no costs at all. The problem: you have to do it yourself. Because you are the only one who lives in your body! Of course, you hear probably this revelation for the first time in life and look at it as somebody who saw a plane for the first time. Of course this it is not recognized by the "science" and doctors, and it never will be as long as disease is a big business. But who cares? Nothing was ever recognized from the beginning!
What is an allergy actually?
"Allergy" (or "intolerance", "phobia", etc. same thing, different names) means any kind of symptom produced by any kind of substance and also by non-material things in the world. Even plain water or sunlight.
There are allergies to plain water, milk, cow milk only, goat milk only, powder milk only, only cheese, wine, certain type of wine, only a brand of wine, alcohol, cold water, hot water, cooked food, raw food, any fruit, cooked fruit, red meat, fish, seafood, silver, nickel, gold, banknotes, plastic, dust, ocean air, humid air, cold, heat, bees, feathers, pollen, soy, certain nuts, only nuts with a shell, tampons, sperm, penis, sweat, chocolate, certain sugars, cereals, certain cereals, gluten, flour, sand, grass, hey, smell of certain flowers, certain colors, sounds of rescue, certain places, certain people, flowers, sesame or certain seeds, driving a car, being in a car driving, darkness, sunlight, artificial light, sailing, a certain room, a certain place, cat hair, cat hair only from black cats, dog hair, etc.
There is nothing one cannot get allergic to! Nothing! There are people allergic to plain water and their own sweat or tears (google Barbara Ward).Since water has no proteins and was always good, doctors cannot even explain this one!
With so many material and non-material things cannot be the body which is wrong! And it cannot be the substance itself — if is material nature — otherwise we would all be "allergic" to it. Or the allergy would be there from the beginning. But allergies start out of blue and at any age. Not only they come unexpected and unpredictable, but they also vanish unpredictable. Many people "loose" their allergy and doctors and patients cannot tell why! A mystery!
There is not a single medical explanation who makes ANY sense regarding the cause of an allergy. All these "explanations" are so stupid that they offend even the intelligence of a ringworm. They are non-sense.
What is the only common factor between a human and all these things ? Only the mind, the psyche, the soul. The cause of an allergy can be ONLY IN THE MIND. And the solution for getting rid of them is also only in the mind. This is not a theory, it is a fact and it can be proven by almost anybody. Anybody who really wants to get rid of his/her allergy.
The physical symptoms are only the reactions of the mind to that specific substance/thing. And this reactions starts with a small or a big emotional shock which is stored by the subconsciousness. The conscious part of the mind might consider that shock not a big deal, but the subconsciousness thinks different. For it is always a big deal once it was stored there.
You heard about the gulf war syndrome or of "posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)"? This is a medical term and a medical theory. It is nothing but an allergy to gun shots, bombs, explosions, war news or other bad things which happens during a war.
It is only has a different name, but it is the same thing as any allergy. People who have this kid of allergy will have physical and psychical symtoms from that triggers installed with an emotional shock suffered during a war. Any phobia and any anxiety have the same mechanism and is nothing but an "allergy" to a certain material or non material thing. Spiders, small places, heights, etc.
Whatever name the doctors would give to all these things, big or small, life threatening or not, the mechanism and the cause are ALWAYS the same. The small child inside (your soul, your subconsciousness) was once shocked while that thing was around you/ while you were eating it/ while you were in contact with / while you were smelling it/ etc. during that particular event that shocked you for a small moment.
If your dog is inside a car and the car has an accident, that dog will never want to enter a car again or that particular car. If a small child burns himself with hot milk he will avoid any milk, any white liquid, even yoghurt. But if to an adult or an elder child will happen the same they would act different, because the conscious mind and the reason tells them there is no harm in doing that again. But the unconscious part of the mind will act as the dog. And here is the problem: our self is divided into two different parts but we neglect the other one.
After the shock finished the child inside you (subconsciousness) it will not forget it and will try to warn you through symptoms that this something is bad, dangerous, poisonous, to be avoided, etc. any time it will get in contact again with.
Did you ever hear about "false pregnancy"? When women or animals think, wish or fear so strong they are pregnant that most symptoms of a real pregnancy will appear. If this is possible, then producing the reactions known from allergies is a piece of cake. So it does not matter what the reaction is: hives, eczema, diarrhea, constipation, swelling, edema, herpes, pain, colic, fainting, itching, tears, dandruff, sneezing, panic attacks, hallucinations, muscle cramps, vertigo, etc.
That shock can be also anything which affected you in that moment emotionally or put you in stress: you found out your bf/gf was cheating you, you had an accident, you got a phone call with bad news, because a stupid prank or at something disgusting, a life threating situation, violence, etc.
Another way of getting an allergy is "nocebo", negative suggestion. When somebody — e.g. a doctor or your mother — makes you believe you are "allergic" to this or that. It has the same effect as a shock. That is why when people make allergy test and the test says "oh you are even allergic to more things", you will start also having reactions to the new stuff or the reactions will be stronger than before. The MIND, your CPU, is very easily programble. In a negative or in a positive way.
The only thing you have to do to get rid of the allergy is to find that particular shock and then shake that kid and tell him the truth! "See kid, cow milk has no fault. That day my father slapped me on my face while I was drinking milk for breakfast. It was the slapping/ beating which shocked me, not the milk. But now I am an adult and my father cannot slap me anymore. It is over".
Knowing this mechanism almost any allergy could be deleted in less than 10 minutes. Specially if you know the shock whoch started the reactions. If you cannot remember the exact cause, it is a little more difficult, but it is still easy.
The biggest problem is that most people prefer to avoid things or take medicine instead of finding and eliminating the cause. Most of us were brainwashed to believe an allergy is "incurable" and has not a known cause. We have been taught to the blame it on the "body" and "proteins", "cells", "genes", the substance itself. The medicine has no interest in teaching you the truth, because they would earn much less money! Beside that the medicine is arrogant. They pretend to know anything but cannot cure almost nothing. The only "treat". Treating but not healing makes the most money. They only have interess to treat you endless and this is the only thing they learn.
In order to get rid of the allergy the first step is to remember the emotional shock (sometimes this is tiny, sometime is hard to believe!) who started your reactions. The second step is to realize that what happened once it is something already gone, with no importance now. That shock is over and does not affect you anymore. Maybe you were a baby or a kid when happened.
If you made those two steps succesfully you can do the last step: try to contact or wait for a new contact with the "allergen". You will see that the reaction to the allergen is gone or at much smaller than before (this depends on you and how big the shock was).
If the success is only partial, repeat all steps or use other methods to reprogram the mind:
— get positive about it,
— use EFT mentioning the cause and effect (google EFT, emotional freedom technique)
— do affirmations mentioning the cause and effect
— use NLP
— meditate about it
You you don't remember the shock you still can cure it. Just imagine that whatever it was, it is simply over, gone and that substance or whatever is not doing anything to you. It was some event that scared of shocked you and that belongs to the past.
Some examples of cured allergies:
"A boy, 6 years was sent alone to a sanitarium. There he was forced to drink milk, which he never liked. Right after that he developed diarrhea from any drop of milk. It lasted 42 years. Until he heard for the 1st time of this revelation. He remembered what happened and realized that the forcing to drink it was the issue, not the drink itself. He open the fridge and took a sip from the milk of his wife. He waited for 30 minutes, but no reaction. Normally would be there in less than 5 minutes. He continued drinking, but still no reaction at all. He cured himself in 5 minutes remembering the shock he suffered only."
"A woman was developing mouth ulcer (aphtae) every time she was eating walnuts. This allergy lasted for almost 60 years. After reading about the real cause of allergies she remembered the particular cause. When she was a kid she used to steal walnuts from the tree of her neighbour, which was getting mad about it. Once she has been told her mother and got beaten very hard for this. After that the symptoms started. Realizing that her mother is dead and nobody can punish her anymore for doing that, the reactions vanished right away. (Since) then she can eat as many walnuts as she wants without any symptoms"
"A woman had strong cramps during the period for more than 20 years. She remembered that was very shocked by her first period. Nobody told her anything, and she was there full of blood, scared and alone. After realizing this event as the real cause for the cramps, they vanished with no return."
"Somebody was getting hives and red spots on the belly every time after seeing something red. It took a long time to make this association. She remembered her shock: During her C-section she looked down to her belly and was scared to death of how much red blood was there. So she got allergic to the color of blood, red. After finding out the cause, the symptoms diminished about 90%."
"A guy could suddenly not drink a certain brand of red wine without getting symptoms. After a while of searching in memories he remembered that he was drinking exactly this kind of wine when he found out that his wife had a lover. But now he was already divorced and had another girlfriend, so what happened once was over. The allergy disappeared after this revelation.
"A girl is allergic to cat hair, but only hair from black cats. She used to have a black cat. One day the cat was hit by car and died. She witnessed her death, that is why she became the allergy to black cat hair."
" A guy has genital herpes for many years already. It keeps coming and going. When he was young and dating his wife he made love to her in her house while her parents were gone. But they returned, unexpected, and he had to stop jump in his pants as fast as possible. He got so scared so any time he had sex with his wife his body was reacting with this genital herpes, trying to warn him about the danger of having sex. Once he got the message, the herpes never came back. "
A girl has vaginal cramps after any intercourse and vaginal penetration. She remembered that she was very shocked
when she felt for the first time the penis of her girlfriend inside. It did not really hurt her bad, but that feeling simply shocked her. Now she was reacting with cramps any time after feeling something inside her vagina. The symptoms diminished almost completely upon realizing the cause.
A girl is allergic to the smell of lilies. When she 17 her cousin, age 6, was hit by a car and died. Most people brought lilies to the burrial, and they were smelling strong. She got allergic to lilies At that moment because it has been associated with the death of her cousin.
A guy is allergic to raw eggs, but not to cooked eggs. Once he got in a dispute with his father, the father got pissed off and threw at him with raw eggs. At that moment he became allergic to raw eggs (diarrhea). He could cure it by simply realizing the cause some years later.
What about you? Can you find your shock which lead to the allergy and "delete" it? Try to remember it and post it here.
(Please excuse my english, it is a foreign language for me)
Holy shit. Who knew potatoes were in so many things or could do this. Anyone else dealing with this and do you have any tips, anything that's worked, or really any advice on even just coping? Asking for a family member.
