Severe Allergies

Posted by @hearingya in Skin Health, Feb 11, 2012

I have been fighting with different types of Allergies for the last 15-20 years, and getting worse. A lot of foods, OTC and prescription meds, metals, adhesives and most of these things I grew up with. It seems like my body is trying to reject everything in one form or another.
Now... after years of avoiding the dentist, I have to have work done...I am allergic to Mercury, Novacaine, Gold, Dental adhesives, Latex etc. I have been taold that I will need to have work done in a hospital OR as My allergies are to bad to do in a Dr. Office. Does anyone have any of these problem or have had to do dental work in a hospital?
I discovered by accident last week, I guess I should plan on never going to a Cardiac Unit in a hosptal. I had to do a 24 hour heart monitor and still have the outline of the square patches the leads are connected to, on my chest. The paper tape was also giving me a reaction. Within 24 hours, I had broken ,weeping, sores.
I am wondering if there is anybody that can relate to these issues?
Thank You for taking the time to read this and hope to find out what I can do?

Sorry to hear about your terrible allergies. Sounds like your immune system is severely depleted or challenged.
I also have severe allergies to LOTS of foods (Wheat, Corn, Shellfish, Peanuts etc) as well as different meds, metals etc. I also have severe asthma as my allergies extend to pollen, dust, pet dander and smog.
I find that if I do HERBAL treatments AND acupunture AND asthma medications, AND avoid all my triggers, then I can live a semi-normal life. I recommend seeing a good herbalist or acupuncturist/herbalist to supplement whatever MD you already see. Herb Pharm is a good company and I use their products. However, you need to see if you are allergic to any of the herbs (I am). So, what i do is have my wife go to the market with me and muscle test EVERYTHING to see if I'm allergic to it or not so I don't end up wasting money on stuff that I'm allergic to. I pretty much muscle test EVERYTHING we buy to eat as I am allergic to weird stuff (melons and mangos for example). The way I test stuff is I hold the item by my chest or belly with one hand, and stick my other arm out to my side. My wife then pulls down on my arm. If I am weakened and it's easy to pull down my arm, then I know I'm allergic to that thing. It's called Applied Kinesiology. It's saved me A LOT of grief. Periodically I have to test ALL my food and vitamins to make sure that I haven't DEVELOPED an allergy to something that I was previously not allergic to. Sometimes it happens. And whatever I'm allergic to makes me extremely fatigued. So, it's worth the trouble to do the muscle testing. I also have to muscle test THE SAME SUPPLEMENT (Vitamin D for example) from different companies and I'll be allergic to some companies Vitamin D and not the others based on whatever additives or additional ingredient they put in the supplement.
Also, worth the trouble to do the herbs as it helps me with asthma which is actually life-threatening.
I have never had to do dental work in a hospital as my allergies do not extend to the dental related products that you mention. However I am rather paranoid of dentists, so to deal with the pain, I always take some Vicodin (not too much - like half a pill) before the session to limit the pain.
Good Luck!

With respect to medical interventions, you might consider preparing for exposure to known or suspected allergens by taking prednisone and/or antihistamines (e.g., Benadryl (Diphenhydramine)). This should be under the direction of a physician who has substantial experience in immunology -- preferably an allergist or immunologist. Have you had any studies conducted to see if the genesis of the problem can be identified -- e.g., immunoglobulin studies? Seek competent professional assistance in the first instance -- as many doctors lack the experience and knowledge to treat patients such as you.

Allergies can be the result of poor gut function. Have you done any gut repair with all the treatment you've had?
