Thank you Alcie!
I've seen many doctors for my problem, but no one seems to be able to help me. I was in the hospital three years ago, with AP cause of vain spasme. They gave me medicine and did a heart catherisarion. Nothing was wrong with my vains, exept for the spasmen. The next months I developed a acne, wich I never had before and I thought it was caused by the medication! So they gave me less, exept for the one I just couldn't do without. Nothing changed... So I went to see another doctor who said it was Rosacea. I know that it was NOT, so I went to see a dermatologist. He tested me, my blood and with patches and ever since he placed rhe patched my system decided to go its own way. I was suddenly allergic to everything I at or touched!! The doctor told me to go on a anti histamine diet, he didn't know what to do :( So I did, and I've been researching ever since! Writing down everything I eat, my response and how I feel.It's very difficult to find out what the problem is but at last I found out that salicylates ans sulfites are the main triggers for me! I've gone GV, made my own bread from rice and teff, but I wanted to try something else, so I bought a mix. In this mix was cornstarch and I didn't know
( forgot) that it had sulfites in it! A lot!!! So I had big trouble with my heart and my face looked worse then ever. My heart was in heavy protest and it scared the hell out of me! It was a confirmation that sulfites are realy bad for me! The medication I had also contains sulfites, so I talked to the cardiologist about it and she gave me permision to stop for a while, see what happens. And guess what...I'm doing just fine! Don't need the meds if I stick to sals en sulfites free! But it is hard to find al the things that contain sulfites. I'm making a list of it, so I can check and plan every day what to eat, but sometimes I make a mistake. And once eaten....In the Netherlands it is very hard to find a dietist that knows about sulfites ans sals! Even the doctors don't believe in it.Because if you can't see it is just not there!
I lost a lot of weight during this struggle, but maybe if I know exactly what I can eat, i'll gain some weight again.
Vitamines are no option I discoverd! i spent a lot of money trying them, but they all give me a very bad acne!
So now you know I have to do this on my own with the help of internet and people suffering from the same problem.
I've been searching for almost a year now, but I know I'm going to win this battle. I bought te Salicylaat Handbook and the Sulfite connection and they are my bibles ;) thanks for you help and if you have any tips for me, please say so.I will be much gratefull!
