For acne, the best solution is having a blood test for food intolerances. Then completely cut out the foods you are intolerant to. It takes less than a week to see results. It took me years of struggling to finally discover this simple solution. I hope this helps people.

You may indeed be allergic to the sulfites in the wine, they are notorious for causing all kinds of immune responses. I get hive from them. But I did find that Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide can eliminate the sulfites in wine. I found this product called SO2GO from New Zealand, which comes in measured doses, and you can add it to qlass or a bottle of wine and it neutralizes the sulfites. Now I have purchased a bottle of this food grade hydrogen peroxide and I am washing my fruits and vegetables with it, before consumption to eliminate any sulfite residue that may be on the skin and it seems to work. I have not had an outbreak in months and I can enjoy wine again. They do make wine with "no detectable sulfites" but the choice is minimal. Hope this helps.
This may seem like a ridiculous question but I am trying to find away to be able to continue to enjoy a few glasses of organic wine or a high quality beer a night without the adverse health effects that I experience. For the past 8 years when I drink alcohol I am almost always unable to sleep that evening. I get rapid heart beats, palpitations, racing thoughts, difficulty breathing, anxiety, pulsations and other upsetting symptoms. When I wake in the morning I feel like I am lucky to have survived.
I am 40 years old, currently have minor mitral valve prolapse and I think that I may be allergic to alcohol. This is unfortunate since I have been drinking regularly for twenty plus years, never get "drunk" and really enjoy drinking. Drinking for me is something that helps me to "lighten up, " relax, quiet my mind, reduce anxiety, get present and enjoy myself. I like the lifestyle and the taste. Despite the terrible negative consequences I have continued to drink moderately hoping that "this time it will be different. " I have tried various supplements, drink lots of water but does not seem to help. Very frustrating that I cannot be like so many others who seem to drink without issue. After being up all last night with terrible symptoms (pulsations, heart rate raised, racing thoughts) my wife has said to me that she cannot stand to watch me suffer like this any more.
I probably should say goodbye to my love affair with beer and wine but before I do I was wondering if anyone knew of anything I could try and/or take that may mitigate the symptoms that I experience after drinking alcohol? Thank you for any guidance.

Years ago, I suddenly developed oral allergy syndrome and found that I couldn't eat raw fruit or veg ...in fact I almost went into anaphylactic shock from a carrot juice until I vomited it up. There was some relief from charcoal, but until I found a cure, I cooked everything.
Eventually I freed myself from this allergy by adding half a cup of cooked brown rice to my diet every day for six weeks. It's a medicine. I like to cook it 40 minutes. Good in smoothies, salads, soups it can be added to everything and because it seems to boost my immune system, I still eat brown rice at least once a week.
I was wondering if this might be a good thing to try for my allergies? I have had them all of my life! Started as a baby, allergic to milk! Seasonal allergies to not exactly sure, but they have most certainly changed over the years. Gotten worse, not better! I currently have 3 different types of allergy meds that I alternate. I constantly have watery eyes, sometimes to the point it makes it hard to see and for the last 6 or 7 years, a skin itch!! I'm now 44 and the hormonal thing I'm going through is most definitely playing a part. Probably always has. I waited a year to see an allergy specialist, and to which I tested hyper- sensitive to everything they tested me for.
A year's wait only to be told to include kombucha in my diet and that it was probably stemming from my allergy to milk. I don't drink milk, can't digest it, but I do eat milk products. Cheese, ice cream occasionally, creamer in my coffee and probably more than that as it is hidden in a lot of foods. Also I have developed an egg allergy. Now I can eat eggs as long as the yolk is cooked hard. But a runny yolk gives me the same pain as a glass of white milk would. That tells me it's probably a protein structure type deal that my body has a very hard time dealing with!!
But my fear is that I'll become immune to these allergy pills and then what? I scratch my skin off?? That's how bad the skin itch gets. And that has happened to me already, when the tops of my feet get itchy, I scratch until they bleed! Hoping for some type of resolution!!

I eliminated all soy based products from my diet, like tofu, miso soup, soybean oil, soy lecithin and any foods that contained anything with the word soy in it. I did this to see if it was the culprit of gastro-intestinal problems, but lo and behold, I started noticing that my face was clearing up. All my pimples went away! I think I have a soy allergy and never knew it. Now if I get a pimple, I think to myself, "what did I eat to have caused this?" and sure enough, I ate something with soy and didn't realize it. Like, Pop Tarts for instance, they have some soy ingredients, as well as breads and mayonnaise. You have to experiment with your level of tolerance. Chemical residue is left behind when they extract soybean products with Hexane, it doesn't surprise me that eliminating it will help balance your body chemistry.

I have had gluten and dairy intolerances for the past 3 years, I try to stay off them, but have a incredibly hard time. Has anyone found a cure to these?
Has anybody heard of histaminosis? I think I might suffer from it after a bit of research. Im curious if its out there as a condition.
I saw lots of information about this Nightshade fruits & vegetables on the net. These Nightshade fruits and vegetables are the main cause of illness like Arthritis for some people. Some people are really allergic to it but they don't know about it. These Nightshade fruits & vegetables dominate our groceries these days. Probably the reason why people are sicker than ever. There are over 250 kinds of fruits & vegetables that are Nightshade mainly because they contain Solanine and can be grown at night. Examples are potatoes, tomatoes, capsicums, eggplant, okra, strawberry etc. However blueberry does not grow at night but it is considered as Nightshade fruit because it contains Solanine. No wonder, some oncologist treating their cancer patients tell them to avoid Nightshade fruits & vegetables.
