Awhile back in a post titled, Identification Please, I talked about my medic alert bracelet and what my inscription says. This is a list of what medic alert has on file for me “in case of an emergency”. A few months back, my doctor’s PA asked if a certain medication was okay for me. I couldn’t remember if it had been a problem before because my list is long. Years ago, when I was constantly being given something for all my maladies, I knew all that I was allergic/sensitive to without blinking my eyes. Time has passed and the list is less easily remembered. So, I just had him call medic alert and they immediately faxed him this list.
MEDICATIONS (CANNOT USE PLASTIC CATHETER NEEDLES)
Benadryl (all antihistamines)
Dextrose (corn allergy)
Primaxin (this caused the episode that almost killed me)
Sulfites & Sulfa
Synthroid (lost due to an overdose – the pharmacy gave me the wrong dose and I took it for over a week – over time, I have been able to take this again)
Gapabentin (Comp only) – can’t even take that any more
Estradiol (Compounded only)
Progesterone (Comp only)
Phenol (Plastics, etc)
Zephiran (benzalkonium name brand)
Methylmercaptan (in rubber & gas)
FOODS NOT ALLERGIC TO - After looking at this list and then the list of foods I was allergic to in the beginning you can see what I gave up and how hard it was to eat. It took about two to three months on the provocation/neutralization treatments to slowly get some foods back as long as I took the shots every four days. Slowly with this treatment and then later LDA, I gained foods that I never thought I would eat again.
Crab (sulfite free)
FOODS ALLERGIC TO - after taking injections from the Environmental Health Center and now my LDA treatments – I have gained many foods back. I was so sick and my body was fighting so hard that it literally thought everything was the enemy. I lived in a hyper-reactive state for so long. My body still lives in this state but it reacts less violently to some things than in the beginning. Foods that I can now eat as long as I don’t abuse them or foods that I can eat after the two weeks following my LDA are shown in red below.
Apples – organic only
Black Eyed Peas
Chocolate (can have mold)
Coconut (no sulfites)
Concentrated Juices (mold)
CORN (ANAPHYLACTIC) – this was an amazing recovery.
Green Bell Pepper
Oat – steel-cut only
Tea (Black – mold)
Grape/Grapeseed Oil Cod
Fabrics (Cotton, etc)
