Posted on 08/21/2010 9:18:48 PM PDT by Quix
Metmom has had allergies and food allergies her entire life. In the last few years they have gotten steadily and progressively worse. Foods have been dropping out of her diet until she reached the point she is at now and can only eat rice, chicken, lamb, and venison. Anything else causes her to react rather destructively, debilitatingly.
The problem is that the repeated continual exposure to the few remaining foods, could lead to a sensitivity to those as well, which has just happened to two foods she had been safely eating since October.
There are options for nutrition should she start to react to all foods, but they are used only in the most dire situations. She's concerned about reaching that point--and frankly has been feeling more than a little discouraged by all such.
She has undergone extensive medical testing which has all been inconclusive. Almost everything comes back normal or negative, and the few things that she does test positive for arent what causes her the most problems.
She is attempting to get into a regional medical center for more specialized medical evaluation to see if they can determine the cause and possible treatment, if any exists.
She has been prayed for and anointed numerous times over the years, however, she would appreciated continued prayer for complete healing.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND HER PLIGHT with as much empathy as you can. She's been through a 1,001 suggestions and tried a LOT of different things. She's been through the Henry Wright seminar and prayers extensively. I don't think she is quite up to handling any more suggestions currently. Those who've been through such can understand such a feeling. She just greatly would appreciate your understanding and PARTICULARLY YOUR CARING PRAYERS.
This summary is per my understanding and might be stated somewhat differently were she writing it herself. I believe she'd affirm the truth of what I've said but these are essentially my words.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
Prayers for total healing, and guidance.
I never heard of a pic line before. What’s that?
I hope it isn’t what my allergist was referring to the other day as a last resort kind of thing.
Is that intravenous nutrition?
Barley is one thing I do test allergic to, although I’m not sure why as it was never really a part of my diet. But I tried a small bit anyway.
Never again. Not worth the consequences.
Lord, please allow MetMom to heal of these terrible allergies. Allow her to eat all the foods she has missed so long. Let her also feel the nourishment of your peace and love. May her recovery be speedy and complete. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
I had these types of reactions, mostly the breaking out, since I was an infant.
Stress can aggravate allergic responses, that is true, so mental attitude can play a role in the severity of the reaction.
However, the problem is, I will be going along, happily eating something that has hitherto been safe, and within a couple weeks, I am clearly reacting to it and it goes on the don not eat list.
Prayers for you two ladies.
Do you eat a lot of honey, by any chance? Especially local to your environment?
Pour Out upon our Sister the blood of Righteousness and Healing Bring forth your Spirit to dwell within her own and make her whole once again ....
With your Salvation and Sacrifice lord we Believe and Receive this Blessing for our Sister ....
I can’t any more.
Local honey has helped mr. mm tremendously. Even my allergist recommends eating it. He says it really does work although not quite as good as his shots :)
But for those who can’t do the shots, it’s an option.
Besides, honey has a lot of sugar (no kidding) and makes the yeast go crazy.
Praying for your accurate diagnosis and speedy recovery.
We will keep praying for your answer. Stay strong in the Lord, and rest when He leads you to rest. sharon
I too have problems with allergies. Mine lead to respiratory problems. The only thing that has ever helped me is a thorough liver/gallbladder detox and flush.
Metmom’s situation seems to involve much more of her system. I will be praying for her complete healing and peace for her and her family while she goes through this.
May the Lord heal MetMom and bless her, may His Word sustain her and comfort her, and may he strengthen her body, her will, and her faith, in our Saviour Jesus Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.
THANKS TONS FOR EVERYONE’S PRAYERS.
A very busy week for me so I won’t be replying to everyone.
KNOW that METMOM is reading this thread—every post.
PRAISE GOD FOR EACH OF YOUR LOVING PRAYERS AND KIND CARING.
Some of you have offered suggestions anyway. That’s OK. I’m saving them to a folder and when the dust settles, if MetMom wishes to read through it—it will be available to her.
BLESS YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS. THANKS TONS.
Yes. Peripheral Inserted Central Catheter. She had a rough time, although the catheter itself was not too bad. It was the scariest part for her, but I think the worry over the line was the actually the worst part of having one. We have a finicky gut in my family, and that has been really the toughest part. She’s been in and out of hospitals over hers.
However, she is eating now, albeit carefully. Sometimes I know she worried if she would ever get better, this last time it went on for so long, but it did. I hope things work out for you. I have an unhappy gut also, and I know the frustration and worry that takes a toll on you. It’s really rough when something so basic to the way you live your life gives trouble.
I’ll keep praying, and ask a few friends to join in for you.
THANKS FOR YOUR EXPERIENTIAL CARING.
I’ll gladly ask for God’s help in restoring the health of a fine lady and fellow freerepublic member.
An old friend returned from Vietnam with a strangely similar condition, - no where near this severe.
THANKS FOR YOUR RISKY THOUGHTFULNESS.
Prayers up for you, sweetie. May you find the solution.
Please ignore this if you’ve already noted it, but I thought I’d make sure to tell you: topical ANYTHING can get to your bloodstream. Please remove all commercial laundry soaps, shampoos, lotions, topical medications, dry cleaning, makeups, from your skin and use only the purest organic cleaners for laundry (things that touch your skin, like your clothes, towels, and sheets) and bathing. What if you are reacting to something that is getting in through the skin? You can find safe alternatives and test what you do use here: http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/
At any rate, I will pray hard for the right solution for you to have a complete healing.
