My son's been diagnosed with this condition after about a year of throwing up and gagging. He does appear to have acid reflux because I observe him closely right before an "episode". We still have no idea what causes it in him, aside from the reflux. They've put him on Pulmicort which is a steriod he swallows. I sure do not like this and want something natural as well. Unfortunately, the common cures for acid reflux are things like cayenne pepper and ACV, and he's not quite old enough to take capsules. I'm afraid also that the course of treatment makes one worse before making them better. My son is three so I feel I cannot do this. Hoping someone else has found something.
An eating disorder only recognized since about 30 years ago is called EE for short. It is way under diagnosed, and often mistaken for acid reflux, and even celiac disease. A simple blood test can diagnose celiac disease, but when that comes back negative, you may need to do a scope of the esophagus to do a eosiniphil count. A lot of doctors don't even watch for an elegated count, or know what it means, but that's EE if it is. Basically it means your body is attacking itself bacause of an allergy causing inflamation. The result is coughing, throwing up some or all foods around the time of ingesting an allergen. When there are many allergens, it can cause malnutrition and even death if they can't figure out what to avoid. Not being a skin allergy, the doctor way of diagnosing is faulty at best. The only way I've found to help and we believe now cure it, is a muscle test to know what the allergy is, and then using a proceedure called NAET to permanently cure the allergy. It could be done at home yourself, but as it's not as likely to succeed without a trained professional. Some are better than others too. We found a chiropractor who has been curing people of allergies and allergy related diseases for 15 years. It's not exactly a home cure, but it's so helped us! With people everywhere still saying that EE is incurable, I just want to get it out there that this has been a life saver. Please pass it on.
I MUST recommend to everyone to visit an OSTEOPATH instead of the chiropractor. Osteopath works with the entire body: bones, muscles as well as internal organs. I am not saying that chiropractors are bad, but this is much, much better. It did miracles for me and practicaly everybody that I recommended it too.
MCH 24.7, RDW 18, NEUTROPHIL 45, EOSINOPHIL 18 AND ABS EOSINOPHIL 1. 2. The traditonal metheods of treating Eosinophilic esophagitis with pills and a proton pump inhibitor never worked for me I still had swalloing issues if eosinophilia is the result of defective protein marker in the body. Wouldnt it be necessary to jump start the protein system? Riboflavin is the one vitamin thats the building block for all others in the human body. Taking 100 mg of riboflavin daily ive stabalized the erratic bloodwork a leading sign of active eosinophilia. Then adding 400 to 800 mcg of folic acid to the mix to help the rna in the body. Could you have a cure for eosinophilia? GL
