Grover’s and exercise

Posted by frogger @frogger, Tue, Mar 19 3:48pm

I’m a 72 year old white male and I was diagnosed with Grover’s Disease 3 months ago. I am normally an avid runner and exercise outside. Well this condition has put a kink in my activity. Will I ever be able to run (thus getting hot and sweaty) or am I condemned to a life of non exercise.

I too am an avid exerciser and sweating definitely aggravates the condition. If you read through the most recent threads, there is hope. I hate to sound like a broken record and continually mention the cilantro, but it REALLY helps me and hopefully will help others. While I do get a few small hot spots on occasion, the cilantro has put this disease at bay for me. 1 bunch a day in a smoothie….who knew?

Thanks. I will try cilantro. In what ways do you prepare it? I am up for anything at this point. Do you still work out within it recurring?

I make a smoothie with 1 bunch of cilantro, a little sherbet and banana with a tsp of Chlorella and water. Others use avocado you can get more info on Cilantro and Grover's and recipes at https://earthclinic.com/ailments/grovers-disease/cilantro-remedy/ Some people see results in a few days, others take longer (some people don't get relief) . Give it a good month or so. It is something I will likely have to do daily until (or if) it goes into remission. If I miss a day, I feel it start to come back. Also, I do work out again and with the exception of the few small "hot spots" I mentioned, I remain 99% clear. Best of Luck!

I have improved with vitamins—50,000 IU of A and 6,000 of D. Unsure which one is doing most good. Started after reading about some different methods….and out of desperation. Finally sleeping at night. But losing competitive edge with my running. What happens now when you work out? When you sweat?

Nothing really happens anymore when I work out or sweat. Pretty much as “pre Grover’s “.

@frogger I have recently tried the cilantro and I didn't think much of it until I stopped and my Grover's got worse. I am back to putting cilantro in my morning smoothie and then I eat a bunch more
raw before dinner. It seems to have taken the redness and itchiness away but the bumps are still there yet smaller. As for exercising, I've noticed the harder I work out with exertion, the worse my Grover's is. I have to shower with cool water right after. Wearing the right kind of clothing to wick the sweat helps me. Maybe in time with continuing to eat cilantro, my Grover's will be less after workouts. Good luck! I've also begun light therapy.

My itching diminished by 95% when I started vitamins A and D. Not sure if that’s what worked but I had been in misery since January. I’m starting cilantro today. I’m trying any and all methods.
Thanks for the message!

All, has anyone tried CBD based oils/creams. Lots of noise out there about how it helps with itchiness, inflammation, etc. I see there are a bunch of creams. Before i go try it, figured i would ask if anyone has had any success.

I tried some and for me it might have been a little calming, but no real difference in itching
