Hello Mary, I have been suffering from this condition since August 2011 - but had it 13 years ago as well. I now have it under control as I have identified the issue and hope to cure it. Did you manage to get help or information that you found fitting for you? You mentioned that you received a paper on how it would be treated by a physician - what was that treatment? I guess you did not like what they planned to do so that is the reason to seek folk remedies.
I was told that there is no cure - but I had been better for 13 years - back then I also suffered from urticaria as well. Via an elimination diet I have identified all the foods that trigger the angioedema - for me it is all proteins, some fruits and veggies. In addition, I take L-glutamine (1 tsp first thing in the morning and last thing at night). This is due to leaky gut syndrome - there is a lot of information on the internet about this.
As I have said before, my doctor told me there was no cure but I have been fine for 13 years. By not consuming the foods that irritate my intestines it can then regenerate itself. Therefore. I eat generous amounts of predigested (hydrolyzed) protein, fruits, non-starchy vegetables, and olive or coconut oil. I found this link - hope it is ok to post it. http://www.betterbodycare.com/Solutions/Causes/LeakyGut.htm I have been following this regimen and every so often - I test myself my eating protein (normal meals) to find out whether I am better or simply because I want to eat again like a normal person. I then have to take anti-histamines to reduce the angioedema which is not a good thing as my kidneys are then affected. I have learnt not to be hasty.
As I am currently living with this condition and I am not yet well - it would be great to learn how others are coping and whether the information I have provided is useful.
All the best,
