Jan 28, 2018 · Eczema and skin rash in Skin Health

These were intolerances/sensitivities and luckily NOT allergies. I had a rough year and a half of battling food borne illnesses, sinus infections and skin rashes. So I was on strain after strain of antibiotics. I was having terrible GI issues none the less as a result of all the antibiotics but as time went on I still was unable to have a solid stool. I generally felt terrible all the time and would get what I thought was weird bouts of acne. I was fed up with not being able to just go to the bathroom so had that IgG test done to see if maybe part of the problem was what I was eating. Turned out that the majority of Foods I was eating ALL the time were contributing to a lot of my symptoms. I’ve done pretty well at not consuming them but then like this past week I kept eating corn chips and I got a rash all over my chest. The chips were fried in safflower oil 🙁

Hi, have you ever had an IgG ELISA 184 Panel Food Intolerance test done? I ask since you are Gluten intolerant you may have additional food sensitivities and/or intolerances. I had A severe case of Salmonella poisoning which completely wiped out my gut flora and other back to back medical events which caused me to take numerous rounds of antibiotics. Long story short, I eat healthy and continued to but was constantly having severe GI issues and skin rashes. I would be treated with steroids and ointments but the rashes would eventually re-emerge. That being said a friend reccomended I consider having the IgG test to see in the off chance whether or not I had food intolerances/sensitivites. I had a blood draw and about two weeks later I received a panel and was in SHOCK by the results! Some of the items I had severe intolerances too included tree nuts, spinach, apples, malt, buckwheat, shellfish, egg whites, vanilla, pepper, to name a few. The worst was safflower oil. Used in many processed foods, restaurants and as I found this week cosmetics! My doctor recommended removing all the items on that list for a minimum of 8weeks and then slowly introducing 1 at a time every 4-5 days and seeing how I feel, what kind of reaction I have. In that process I’ve also been taking a probiotic and prebiotic. My GI issues have improved immensely in this time but it’s been trickier with my skin as many cosmetics have hidden ingredients that are on my ‘list’ (safflower oil). While this option may not be for everyone, when you are desperate (as I was) it’s worth trying to learn and find out a bit more about your body as it’s the only one ya got! Hope this helps and best of luck!

Dec 11, 2017 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

This is my first time trying to get off of Effexor and it’s been a nightmare. However, what’s helped for me is exercise, Xanax, and Alpha-Stim treatments. I am not completley titrated off Effexor yet, but I am constantly nauseated, fatigued and just a general feeling of being lost in my own head. It’s like invasion of the body snatchers.
