Any Remedy for Itchy Skin
Hi Ted - I am a 36 year old female, about a year and a half ago, I was introduced to natural remedies and healing, I have been eating and drinking very healthy eg: I was taking daily doses of acv, rubbing coconut oil on my skin daily and eating gogi berries quite often, instead of snacking on candies I will up for the choice of gogi berries. I was also taking daily doses of colloidal silver, (Which I've read that all of the above strengthens the immune system) I must say, the change in life style has been working quite well for me, my skin looks great, I feel younger and just the thought of taking good care of myself left me feeling good about myself. About a month ago I started having bouts of itching in my head, sometimes it will be on my face, I changed my shampoo, my detergent and my cosmetics thinking I was allergic to these things, but nothing helped, the itching is so bad sometimes I am unable to concentrate at the office or on anything for that matter, sometimes it's worst in the night time right when I ready to relax for bed. It also leave me feeling very depressed, where I will run out and buy a candy bar or something unhealthy. I went to my doctor, he told me that I may have something called urticaria, he then recommended that I see an allergist. The allergist told me that I may have an over active immune system, she place me on an allergy treatment for a month( zyrtec), she said that it may help my immune system return to normal. My question to you is, do you think that because of my taking all of the above mentioned, it did send my immune system into over-drive? I hate putting any type of drugs into my system, but for now the zytec helps. Do you have other soultion to my problem? Also I am having a strange heat/warmth feeling coming from between my thighs, I do yogo three times a week, and on one of the tapes that I work out from, the instructor mentioned that in process of detoxication your body my expericence warmth, could this be the warmth that she is reffering to, it also started when the itching started ? I asked my doctor about the strange feeling but he could not provide me with an answer. Please help!
