LDA (low dose antigen therapy) Critical Day 2, cont.

Bless my dear husband.  Once again, he drove me to San Francisco for my LDA treatments.  We left at 8:00 a.m. for an 11:00 a.m. appt.  The drive usually takes 2 1/2 hours giving him a little leeway with traffic.  Traffic was great and we got there a half hour early.  I met with my doctor and discussed my nutrigenomics test and he suggested making sure my B12 injections are Methylcobalamin (need to verify that with my doctor) and also suggested that since my methylation pathways have mutations that I also take TMG (trimethylglycine).  Also I need to add lecithins to my IV’s along with the already used Magnesium, Vitamin C and Glutathione.

I am home and yes my headache is with me (nothing unusual about that).  I got it about 3o minutes after I left the office.  My brain is also a little fuzzy and my concentration is not so great.  On the positive side is that I am not itching nearly as much with the inhalant component of the treatment as I usually do.  Maybe this is a good sign that I won’t be flailing my arm around tonight to distract myself.  I am not allowed to scratch the wheals, put anything on them or ice them.

I ate my lamb stew on the way home as my dear husband munched on his Jack in the Box burger, fries and drank a soda.  NOTE TO SELF:  Order the thermos today.  The stew wasn’t cold but it wasn’t hot either.  (I had purchased a thermos but the stew still wasn’t hot.  I am not sure if I didn’t get it hot enough before adding or if I need to find a different thermos.)

I received three injections today.  In my left arm I received the Inhalants (pollens, dust, molds).

On my right arm I received two injections (foods and chemicals).  You can see that the food injection is swollen but the chemical spot is just a red splotch.

I will report back tomorrow on Critical Day 3.

  1. There’s a couple of people in my food allergy group that’s doing this treatment….I hope it goes well for you!

    • Thank you. It has helped me tremendously. Although I must admit that I was so close to grabbing my husband’s bag of chips and just munching. I am really wanting something cruncy, salty and not lamb. But my day is almost over.
