I used to be allergic and asthmatic. Allergy shots and allergy treatments from ages 6 to 16 turned me into a space human pincushion. Inhalers and medications were kept in every corner of my life. I remember going to the ER one Christmas Eve because of the adrenaline rush. My asthma was life threatening at times.
I asked all the doctors they sent me to:
“Why do cats and dogs make me sneeze and gasp but not make my best friend sneeze and gasp? What’s the difference between us?”
When the experts couldn’t answer, I kept asking myself that question. Even my most basic question was left unanswered:
If the medication gives my body what it lacks, why can’t my body do the same?
Fortunately, I was too young to listen to authority figures and began searching for a cause and a cure. I started taking herbs, vitamins, and anything that offered a glimmer of hope.
After many unsuccessful experiments with herbs, vitamins and natural products, I was lucky…
In 1977, at the age of 19, I was introduced to a doctor in Utah by an older friend who was interested in nutrition. This man was said to be a first-rate biochemist, herbalist, and healer. Hundreds of people followed the guy, and even though he was criticized by those who wanted to discredit him, I talked to many, many people who had experienced tremendous health benefits.
When I put “Doc” it told me the following:
There are three things that cause your allergies:
#1 Your liver is overproducing histamines because it has too many toxins
#2 Your thyroid is low and that determines the rhythm of the liver
#3 Your adrenal glands and lungs are weak (that didn’t surprise me, but until then I didn’t know what to do)
This made a lot of sense because:
I knew about “antihistamines” because I had taken them to stop allergic reactions.
One of my symptoms, hard to wake up in the morning, coincided with my low thyroid symptoms.
My inhaler at the time was epinephrine, a substance similar to adrenaline.
Within 3 months of being treated with herbs he gave me to detoxify my liver, and herbs/nutrients to strengthen my lungs and support my adrenal gland and thyroid, I was allergy and asthma free. That was 30 years ago, and I have been allergy and asthma free ever since.
(I’ll say this to keep myself out of jail: take your medication until your doctor tells you otherwise, and/or if you decide to find a natural cure like I did. Be aware that you will encounter a lot of resistance from Doctors and even many asthmatics who believe that natural cures are impossible. Sad, but true).
Here is the image:
The Liver has to process toxins and when it can’t do its job it stores them. If you store them, you also produce extra histamines to protect yourself. If an allergen is present, the brain sends a message: “Send some histamines! I think there’s an invader!” and the Liver proceeds, releases too many, and you have the allergic response: hives, asthma, sneezing, etc.
Cleanse the Liver and maybe, like me, you will be allergy/asthma free.
