I've been sick since 2015 and the past year I seem to be much more sensitive to some things. I can't take certain meds that I was able to take just a year ago. I also seem to crash and feel terrible in hot and humid weather which is also new. Other supplements and foods I also have trouble tolerating. I thought it might be mast cell disorder but I started treatment for that a few months ago and have noticed no changes.

I am doing Bee venom therapy right now. I tried to add LDN but I can't tolerate it even though I could last time I tried it. Any idea what is causing these new sensitivities? I feel like it is preventing me from doing any kind of treatment. I can't even take vitamin C which is necessary for BVT.

I am getting more sensitive too, mainly to the herbs. Meaning smaller doses still make me herx.

I know mold exposure and leaky gut can both cause sensitivity issues. I have mold. Not sure about leaky gut.

I don't know. When people are very reactive, I tend to wonder about MCAS.

But I just listened to Byron White talk on the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #3, and something he said really stuck with me. Here is my copy/paste from another thread on this:

I listened to Byron White speak during the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #3. I understood him to say that when people react to very low doses of the herbal formulas, that they are very toxic and to back up to address the detox and inflammation. He recommended the detox2 formula before doing the other types of specific herbals (like babs/bartonella/etc). Said he saw improvement from detox2/anti-inflammation (believe he said both?) first before even adding the other combo herbals. I thought that was hopeful (although we don't tend to react well to what works for others - but this makes good logical sense).
My Kid#2 doesn't respond to any detox methods, so it's discouraging. But I'm going to give this a try and see what happens!

FWIW - we are just starting the detox2/anti-inflammation products now.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
