Case Studies: Hives, toe fungal infection, 40yr old.
This client is totally cleared of her hives and toe fungal infection (swipe left to Pic 2 - before pic and Pic 3 - after recovery) since she first came to Body Inc. in Jan 2020. It took her more than half a year but I guess nothing beats total recovery.
Patience is key in healing.
Before she started our detox program, she had been taking daily antihistamine to control her hives since 27 Mar 2019. How she first got hives was due to a medicine she took in 2018. Suddenly hives flared up big time.
She used to drink wine, sake and eat oily foods. Through my consultations, I discovered that her main food triggers for itchiness is wheat gluten. She could drink a barley and suddenly she felt very itchy all over the body which she would scratch till skin became red. Twice she tried barley and the outcome was the same. Yeast is also another food she has to avoid as she has toe fungal infection. Sugar feeds yeast, hence though sugar doesn't directly impact her, she should limit sugary foods like ice-cream, sweets etc.
Now that she has recovered, she wants to eat at restaurants with friends but she doesn't know what to eat.
I told her to categorise her fav foods into:
Once a wk - local food like soya bean curd, kueh, noodles etc
Once a month - red velvet cheese cake, milk (1 glass) etc
Now that she is into the next stage: Maintenance, I gave her a list of foods for her to start exploring which type she can take without flareups and how much of a certain food her body can intolerate without flareups. Ultimately, you are your best doctor. My job is to coach and guide you into knowing your body better. Don't feed the foods that your body doesn't like.
Now occasionally she has a few small, itchy mosquito-like bumpy rash (not hives) but they go away real fast. Just avoid the wrong food, I said. It will take another 6 months to a year for the body to build a strong immune system and an army of strong cells. That time, the body should be able to take in more variety of foods.
