Allergies, Keratosis Pilaris
Hi Parhatsathid, I need help with some of my health issues. For the last 4 years I've developed a lot of allergies (environmental/food) and they keep getting worse and worse. I'm taking anti-histamines, nasal sprays, and singulair (stopped taking it). Yet I get no relief. I've got my allergist telling me I don't have food intolerances/allergies, yet every time I eat something my body doesn't agree with I will get a rash, itchy pringly skin, my keratosis pilaris will flare up, my nose will get stuffy, my eyes will get itchy and my sinuses will feel a lot of pressure. It feels like I'm running out of foods to eat.
I've been reading on earth clinic that it's important to balance your bodies PH levels, and eat a plant based diet which I've been doing for the last 4 years. I eat a variety of veggies, fruits, beans, nuts/seeds, grains and very little meat and fish yet my body seems incapable of healing itself. I find it weird that I can eat so healthy yet feel no benefits from it. My skin is very dry and I have keratosis pilaris all over my legs, which is weird because I get good sources of omega 3 from flax seed and walnuts. It seems like my body is not absorbing nutrients properly, and I feel like theirs more to it. I've been trying for so long to get healthy, I want to feel good when I wake up and not have tons of pressure around my sinuses and lots of phlegm at the back of my throat. My problems have also caused my mental health issues, depression, anxiety and OCD. I've gone to so many doctors, allergist and naturopaths yet here I am sick as when I started trying to find a way to fix myself. It is destroying my life. What do I do? What supplements do I take to eliminate my allergies and fix my skin? Please help me because I am totally lost.
I would give up everything I own just to feel healthy mentally and physically. Thanks.
