Hoshimoto’s Disease- I’m Annoyed & I’m allergic to something
Ok I have found out I have this disease right. Well it turns out it is the number one autoimmune disease in America. Depending on what you read it is or is not a disease of the thyroid. However, your thyroid is involved because you have thyroid anti bodies in your system attacking it. Your body things that your thyroid is bad. it can cause depression, brain fog, in other words it may appear I am mentally ill, but I am actually being deprived of nutrients by my own system going hay wire. I apparently need a high protein vegetable diet. I also need carbohydrates, but have to eliminate Gluten, soy, sugar, legumes, eggs, dairy, nightshades, and some say seeds and nuts. Some also add starches. I’m vegan. And I am allergic to yeast and pork. I can’t eliminate all of it. I am just going to try soaking or cooking my seeds and nuts to allow for easier digestion. I have also read that pea protein may be safe. I had some of it the other day and my body seemed to enjoy the experience.
What is frustrating is determining what to do about this problem, the fact I have had it for awhile and no one told me. I am also right now having an allergic reaction to something. My skin on my face, arms and upper chest is suddenly red. I look like I have a sunburn but I have not yet left my apartment. I had ginger tea. Coconut yogurt with hemp seeds. And a B Vitamin complex. This happened once before and I thought it was this Fo-ti herb I take sometimes that is supposed to be good for stopping gray hair and for over all longevity. I even found some articles on line that talk about it being good for my current condition. HOWEVER it has been known to cause a red rash in some people. I’m not a doctor. Do not follow my advice. Do your own homework. I did not take the Fo-ti today.
I had the B complex last night and did not notice a reaction. Maybe it is a combination of things i have to take together. I wonder how long between the time you consume something will you have a reaction to it?
Anyways, a day or two ago when my face turned red I took a primrose oil capsule and drank water and it went away in less than 30 minutes. I hope it is the B Complex though and not hemp seeds. If it is the tea. Well no lose there if I can’t have it. the tea has ginger, lemongrass, licorice, peppermint, and black pepper in it. I need a B Complex but not one that may cause me to be sent to the hospital. The B Complex I am using also has herbs and other things in it. It is not supposed to have yeast, but maybe I got a bad batch. Anyways I am going to take the B Complex back to the store. I think I can return it.
