That's too bad. Local honey is the answer for a lot of people, I'm just so sorry that it can't help you. And yeah, the yeast side effects aren't fun.

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.

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.

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.

Done most of that a long time ago, but thank you for thinking of it. Many people don’t realize what and how much can be absorbed through the skin.

That is actually the way I get my Benadryl. There’s something in most of the OTC forms of it that bothers me, so I’ve taken to using the liquid gel that’s supposed to help with poison ivy. I don’t react to it, which helps keep me from feeling worse, and it does help. I can tell by how broken out I am.

Thanks for the link.

And good night. It’s way late here on the east coast.

Thanks again, all.

Yes, I definitely understand. Hope she can get some answers soon. I haven’t had experience with any mystery ailment personally, but I know through family members how frustrating it can be to never find an answer to what is ailing you. There’s a good show on Discovery Health called Mystery Diagnosis. It’s amazing what agony/misery people can go through for years before getting an answer.

Hi Metmom - I will pray for you continually. I too have food allergies and outside on skin. I take shots too. Less of them. It was twice a week to now once a month. You might of heard everything. It took years to get to a level were I could do regular work comfortably.

So I somewhat understand. I did rotation diet and many other avenues. It took me a dozen doctors to get to the one I have now. If you have been with one too long with no improvement I hate to say Its time to check for a new one. I am only going by my experience. This may not be the case with you. But I was really sick before this one. This doctor I have now has caused so much improvement. 15 years with him. Changed my life. It was terrible. I hope this helps. I know everybody has a strong opinion. You try to be nice and they still do not understand. So above all I will pray. May He bless You! Praise Jesus!

How about poi? The Hawaiian food?

"Taro Dream Inc. and BioNative Nutrition and Research Founder Pamela Noeau Day began her pursuit in 1988 for a hypoallergenic food out of necessity to save the life of her highly allergic infant daughter. This "staff of life" of the Hawaiian people not only saved her daughter's life but has been the answer for thousands of people with digestive challenges, celiac disease and food allergies."

on anti-biotics a couple years ago ight it constantly. The least little increase in carbs or sugar and I’m done.

PROBIOTICS - always should be taken when taking antibiotics. As we know, antibiotics kills all bacteria - bad or good - and the good bacteria needs to be replaced.

I learned the hard way. There are many kinds out there; but, back then I got the refrigerated probiotic. In your case, I'd go for the strongest and the purest.

Sorry about sending a suggestion - but this one I KNOW about needed to say it. Not one MD every told me about it - one did say, 'sure, eat some yogurt'. Not good enough when you get to this stage. My was fine powder - put the suggested dosage in some water and drank it.

Metmom, you WILL get through this!

- THE LORICA OF ST. PATRICK: Apostle to the Emerald Isle -

I bind to myself today
The strong virtue of the Invocation of the Trinity:
I believe in the Trinity in Unity
The Creator of the Universe.

I bind to myself today
The virtue of the Incarnation of Christ with His Baptism,
The virtue of His crucifixion with His burial,
The virtue of His Resurrection with His Ascension,
The virtue of His coming on the Judgement Day.

I bind to myself today
The virtue of the love of seraphim,
In the obedience of angels,
In the hope of resurrection unto reward,
In prayers of Patriarchs,
In predictions of Prophets,
In preaching of Apostles,
In faith of Confessors,
In purity of holy Virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I bind to myself today
The power of Heaven,
The light of the sun,
The brightness of the moon,
The splendour of fire,
The flashing of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of sea,
The stability of earth,
The compactness of rocks.

I bind to myself today
God’s Power to guide me,
God’s Might to uphold me,
God’s Wisdom to teach me,
God’s Eye to watch over me,
God’s Ear to hear me,
God’s Word to give me speech,
God’s Hand to guide me,
God’s Way to lie before me,
God’s Shield to shelter me,
God’s Host to secure me,
Against the snares of demons,
Against the seductions of vices,
Against the lusts of nature,
Against everyone who meditates injury to me,
Whether far or near,
Whether few or with many.

I invoke today all these virtues
Against every hostile merciless power
Which may assail my body and my soul,
Against the incantations of false
prophets,
Against the black laws of heathenism,
Against the false laws of heresy,
Against the deceits of idolatry,
Against the spells of women, and smiths, and druids,
Against every knowledge that binds the soul of man.

Christ, protect me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against death-wound,
That I may receive abundant reward.

Christ with me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me, Christ within me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ at my right, Christ at my left,
Christ in the fort,
Christ in the chariot seat,
Christ in the pupi deck,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I bind to myself today
The strong virtue of the Invocation of the Trinity,
I believe in the Trinity in Unity
The Creator of the Universe.

Amen

Taro is also called "elephant ear" and is easy to grow. It likes to grow in swampy water.

There's also jerusalem artichoke which is a sunflower root that grows prolifically in the north and it's not as starchy as potatoes. It can be eaten raw or boiled. Once you plant it you'll always have it.

There's yucca root which you can bake like potatoes.

Papaya is an excellent aide to digestion as it contains enzymes which will digest food for you- I use it on baby birds with slow crops to move the food along before it sours the crop.

My son is seriously allergic to: wheat, eggs, milk, soy, corn, peanuts, walnuts besides many environmental allergies.

By the grace of God we found out about ALPHA ENF, wow what a breakthrough. Not tasty, but it is good nutrition without the drastic effects the allergies carry.

Sorry, if I am not observing your request. Some one dared to help us a few years ago and I would be negligent if I would not offer the same to another.

Prayers and God’s blessings to MetMom!

I will pray for your healing. Something obviously is askew in your body and there is no doubt help but what????? of course you have been diligent in your research. Will pray maybe some freeper might have some additional information that will help you.

Here locally the natural healers put a lot of stock in thyroid & other gland functions & appropriate natural supplements to counter. The Naturopathic Physician do the best work here and the chinese healers are few & far between but they are amazing.

Keep us posted.. and thanks for the ping/thread quix

Was Freeper Scythian on either of your ping lists?

If I had an issue like this, aside from prayer Scythian's the guy I'd be Freepmailing twice a day.

If I recall, he credits his health to

a. The grace and mercy of God in Christ Jesus
b. Years of absolutely exhaustive research and much trial and error.

Similarly, the doctors shrugged their shoulders and said, "Sorry." So he had no choice but to try to figure out the puzzle himself.

As a result, he knows a LOT of stuff.

Dear Metmom,

Continuing to Pray for your restoration to health and balance in God’s World, That you may have dominion over, and receive nourishment from, His creation.

That you may be able to feast upon the Bounty which we receive from His Hands without fear.

That You will be able to ingest all His precious gifts, and have them break down properly in your body into the components that fuel your system, JUST as Our Father intended when He Knit You Together in the Secret Place of Your Mother’s Womb.

That Every Cell in You Body, down to the Molecular level, will respond to the Command of Our Lord. That What He Has Made Clean, IS Clean, and What He Has Made Holy, IS Holy, and darkness has no place with Light, and MUST flee from you, In Jesus Name,Amen

Have had “adult onset chronic asthma” and food allergies to the point that two Dr's said I'd be dead in months...Traced it to a soy intolerance and lack of vitamin D3. Took all soy out of diet and currently take 5000/D3 a day.

Yesterday was the first time I'd been back to any Dr in fourteen months....Have been feeling great! Except for a treatable yeast infection, which manifest itself in hives, am doing very well.

D3 boosts the immune system, allergies are all related to a dysfunction of immune system. A study in Norway says it's not a true vitamin, but is a endocrine produced/used by the skin. Everyone I know who has been taking it has had a miraculous healing....and it's cheap. Sure takes care of SAD. Dad's Oncologist, after seeing his healing, is recommending it to his patients.

Metmom- I always enjoy your comments, and I am so sorry for the troubles that are plaguing you. Father- YOU are the King, and your nature is that of restorer; restore the right digestion of Metmom; restore her strength and bring her back into full health. Ease her mind of the trepidation of eating that must surely go along with this affliction. Give her encouragement, Father, and healing in your mighty name. IN the name of Jesus I ask this.

Barley, wheat and rye have "wheat gluten",

For our audience Australian researchers determined there are just 3 small peptides on the gluten protein molecule that cause all the trouble. 1 of them is present in all three of the named grains. 1 is present on just two. Another 1 is present in just one.

That demonstrates the cause of the different reactions by different people to each of these grains or combinations of grains.

They're working on a vaccine that reprograms your T-Cells to NOT attack your intestines simply because they detect those peptides. It's undergoing human trials!

There is hope.
