Hives and Hypothyroidism
I am suffering from hives (also called urticaria) from the past 1.5 years and have read somewhere recently that Acv+ bi-carb soda+ water drink (thrice a day), iodine painting of heels (3 days continuously) and oil pulling (daily) aid in the cure of hives. I am on thyroxin supplements from the past 5 months as I also suffer from hypothyroidism. I take thyroxin tablets on empty stomach once in the morning everyday. Doctors say my hives could be the result of my underactive thyroid. Can you tell me which is the best way to combine the treatments for hives and hypothyroidism so as not to negate the effects of each other? I read that ACV actually dilutes the affects of thyroid supplements. Am new to Acv and have been following the below routine: 1 Thyroxin tablets on empty stomach upon rising 2 20 min later 2 tbsp Acv+ 1/4 tsp bi-carb soda+ 1 glass of water mix twice a day (morning 20 min after I take the thyroxin tablet and evening at around 6 pm) for 3 days of a week continuously. The next 4 days I give a break. 3 30 min hence, breakfast. 4 Evening at around 6 pm (that is when I am back from office) do oil pulling (I am unable not pull oil early in the morn, neither can I swish for more than 6 min!) and follow it up with the acv drink. I have finished 2 courses of the acv drink - First course on 9th, 10th and 11th of Dec07 Second course on 15th, 16th and 17th of Dec07 I have finished 1 course of the iodine painting - I painted betadine (povidide iodine) on my heels for 3 days now starting from 14th of Dec07. Is my routine right (except the oil pulling par of course!). Appreciate your help.
