  • Living with allergies is not easy.... and I strive to provide the best possible service and support to my clients with Food allergies 💚 #foodismedicine
.
I attended Food allergy fund summit this year which covers science presentations and discussion on the state of latest research on food allergies with doctors, researchers, innovators and chefs.

My main takeaway:
👉🏻Dining out with Food allergy takes caution, careful planning and clear communication but it is possible! (Psychosocial anxiety is possible too unfortunately 🥺)
👉🏻NY Medical College presented scientific findings of Integrative Medicine, namely Traditional #ChineseMedicine, acupuncture and herbal therapy for treating allergy and inflammation.
👉🏻Food industry leaders and chefs are aware of #foodallergy and advise to
✅Call ahead, speak to the general manager or the head chef
✅Only go to restaurants that support #allergyfriendlyfood
✅Don’t talk to a server at 9pm on Saturday night about your health condition! Call or email ahead of time #prepare
❤️It Is possible to prevent anaphylactic reactions and deaths from allergy reactions by educating the public to be prepared. @nonuttraveler

I am not able to attend this week’s summit in Washington, but hopefully next time! Thank you Ilana for organizing such an incredibly impactful summit. @foodallergyfund @erinmckennasbakery @cheffalkner

  • Anyone and everyone can have a reaction to eyelash extensions no matter how long they have gotten them done. **I’ve used the same glue & lashes on me every time & im having my first reaction. My eyelids are puffy, &no I didn’t just wake up lol. **Before pulling them out ALWAYS contact your lash artist !! BABY OIL works great and doesn’t burn your eyes if it slips through the cracks of your lids. I’m going to keep mine on and see if my puffiness goes down. If not I will remove with baby oil. #eyelashes #eyelashextensions #eyelashextensionreaction #allergicreaction #babyoil

  • Day 2:100 
Not how I expected this challenge to go 🤦🏼‍♀️
I have been fighting some serious allergies and a sinus infection for over a month now, and last week I busted a blood vessel in my eye as a result from all the coughing/sneezing/hacking up I've been doing. I started a new lash growth serum on Monday and tonight as I was applying the serum, I noticed my eyelid was much more swollen than the other. I don't know if this is an allergic reaction or part of my sinus infection, but I will be visiting my eye doctor tomorrow to pick up my new prescription and to discuss this mess. Send all the good vibes 💗💗💗

Currently: a perfect storm of dermatological disasters.
___
It started shortly before Halloween. I had a small eczema flare on my arm — the usual. Sweat is a trigger & fuck me, I got hot. Still, I wasn’t annoyed. I thought it’d go away after a few days.
___
It didn’t. Out in the burbs, visiting my nephew, I couldn’t get rid of the itch. I also irritated it w/sunscreen. However, it wasn’t until I got home, did all plans and got to crash that it all went to hell. Now, I’m seeing it was the avocado. 
___
I ate it before going to bed, late Saturday night. It’d be too late for it otherwise & I figured my skin could use the help. The next day, I was a puffy cat-eye mess — a late reaction to shitty Halloween make-up, but why am I puking & have a headache?
___
I’m itching to the bone. Slowly disintegrating into a pile of scabs, destroyed by an inability to be soothed. Killer avocados aren’t even suspected yet. 
___
I needed to decompress. I’ll take a coconut milk bath, lather w/aloe from my plant. 2 dismal days, the shock to learn LATEX is in aloe (the yellow goo under the leaf). I switched to avocado oil thinking it’d be great. DUH.
___
It has LATEX 2 & I ate 1. Even worse, its moving through my body, rashing its way through. It’s thee grossest parade since The Human Centipede. 
___
For my efforts of being natural & organic, this is a major backfire. Meanwhile, I’m routinely turned radioactive, injected w/nuclear isotopes & pop out of the fryer w/o a hint of harm. It’s as if everything I’m use to is turning on me and living w/that paranoia is over-stretching my patience. Itch, itch, itch, bitch, bitch, bitch.
____
PS: Image is w/halloween tattoos. That was another occasion. Those were safe. 
In real life, I’m deformed.

  • The first time I used tangerine oil, I broke out in hives and my throat closed up, only later to realize that what I was experiencing was not an allergic reaction but detoxification symptoms due to my body getting rid of junk too quickly when confronted with this oil! I had to ease myself into it, and now we're best pals 🌿 I'm forever fascinated by these pretty little bottles and what they can do for our wellness.⁣

  • I’m at the vet today because I woke up with SUPER chubby cheeks! 😮But mom says I’m being SUPER well-behaved. And the Doctor-guy says I’m okay!! Except I don’t like that thingy up the butt that beeps or the prickly doo-dadd that gives me my antihistamine. - Monty #lifewithpets #neveradullmoment #goodboy #allergicreaction #whatsthatmeowing

  • Food dyes are found in everything from breakfast cereals to salad dressings. They cause a “rainbow of risks” which include allergic reactions, hyperactivity, and possibly even cancer.⠀
⠀
In an article published by CBS News states "These synthetic chemicals do absolutely nothing to improve the nutritional quality or safety of foods, but trigger behavior problems in children and, possibly, cancer in anybody," Michael F. Jacobson, the executive director of a nonprofit group, said in a written statement. "The Food and Drug Administration should ban dyes, which would force industry to color foods with real food ingredients, not toxic petrochemicals.”⠀
The group says the three most widely used dyes - Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 - are contaminated with cancer-causing substances. Another dye, Red 3, has been identified as a carcinogen by the FDA but is still in commercial use.⠀
Other dyes have been linked to allergic reactions, the group says, and studies show that dyes can cause hyperacitivity in children.⠀
⠀
Despite those concerns, manufacturers put about 15 million pounds of eight synthetic dyes into our foods each year, according to the group. Per capita consumption of dyes has risen five-fold since 1955, thanks in part to the proliferation of brightly colored cereals, fruit drinks, and candies pitched to children.⠀
⠀
The continued use of food dyes presents "unnecessary risks to humans, especially young children," James Huff, associate director for chemical carcinogenesis at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences' National Toxicology Program, said in a statement. "It's disappointing that the FDA has not addressed the toxic threat posed by food dyes.”⠀

  • The Three-Step Allergy Management Plan

Step 1: Documentation: Recording where and when allergies occur is a great way to determine what exactly you may be allergic to. You can accordingly avoid allergens and prevent an allergic reaction.

Step 2: Avoidance: The next step is avoiding your allergens. However, this is often easier said than done, especially in children. Children should carry a list of allergens, and the reactions caused by such allergens, at all times. In case they have a reaction, they will know better the next time around.

Step 3: Medical Treatment: Make sure to be in constant touch with your doctor and take the prescribed medications. In doing this, your symptoms may reduce, and you will most certainly feel better.

Keep those surroundings clean & allergies away!!

  • DON'T EAT ANY FOOD More Than TWICE PER WEEK! . .

WE ALL CAN FALL INTO AN EATING RUT -- And we all can, and should, make every effort to get out of one.  Boring eating is not only boring, it's harmful to your health. 🌈 All nutritionists will advise you to eat a wide variety of whole foods. "Eat the rainbow" is our mantra.

Variety is not only the best way to cover  your nutritional bases (and is the Spice of Life!) significantly it also minimizes the development and progression of allergic hypersensitivities. .
.
WHAT'S YOUR EATING STYLE
Do you have a healthy eating routine that is perhaps overly routine?
Are you a monotonous eater, consuming pretty much the same thing day in and day out?

Even those who THINK they eat a wide variety, often do not.  Cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and pasta for dinner usually means wheat times in a row. Even gluten-free three times in a row is not true variety -- nor healthful.

3 PROBLEMS WITH REPETITIVE EATING....... ▪  Development or exacerbation of hypersensitivities.
.▪ Allergy = Inflammation ➡ Root of all disease.
.▪Imbalanced nutrition / malnutrition.
.
.TOP 5 SUSPECTS ▪ Dairy .▪ Meat .▪ All Grains .▪ Any food you like & eat the most! .▪ Any other food you love & over use!! I don't worry about veggies as much, since they are virtually impossible to overeat. Although there was a time when I was as allergic to peas as I was to wheat.  I loved and over ate them.
.
.👉 SWIPE PICS to see what my previous allergy posts look like and  then scroll my post history under Profile to learn all about allergy. .+ Notice wide VARIETY

  • FOOD ALLERGY
•
Does your child have a food allergy? 👉 Have they eaten a food & developed facial/eye/lip swelling? Or a sore/itchy throat?
•
The most common types of foods to be allergic to are nuts 🥜 fish 🐟 shellfish 🦐 soya, sesame, eggs 🥚and cows milk 🥛
•
If your child has developed wheezing or difficulty in breathing, this is known as anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) Symptoms can also include coughing and a hoarse voice
•
Epipens are used to treat anaphylaxis - these are an emergency intramuscular injection which delivers adrenaline quickly to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction
•
Oral antihistamines such as Cetirizine can slow down the process or be used to treat mild allergic reactions
•
If you think your child may have a food allergy you can discuss this with your GP and see whether your child meets criteria for a referral to an allergy service
•
If your child has an epipen, make sure you know how to use it and ensure that they have 2 for home and 2 for school (this is essential in case a second dose is required in an emergency)
•
Make sure that the people close to your child know how to use their epipen and the signs & symptoms to look out for
•
If your child has asthma (particularly if it is poorly controlled) as well as a nut allergy they are more at risk of anaphylaxis so speak to your GP about a referral. For further information check out @anaphylaxis_campaign and @allergy_uk

  • Very few mammals are known to be venomous--the slow loris is one of them. Toxins from one Indonesian species of slow loris come from a gland on the surface of the slow loris’ arm that they use to chemically communicate with potential mates. Scientists believe that this sexual gland secretion could also be helpful for keeping parasites at bay, as well as predators who can smell it. 
When slow lorises groom themselves, they lick that gland, so if they happen to bite you, those toxins will come with its saliva… which could also be toxic on its own. 
The bite of a slow loris can kill you by giving you a terrible allergy attack, throwing you into anaphylactic shock. In other words, your immune system when reacting to the toxins releases a bunch of chemicals that make your blood pressure drop suddenly and cause your airways to narrow. You might feel like you’re suffocating. A big shot of adrenaline, like from an EpiPen, can be used to stop that scary allergic response, but EpiPens just keep you alive in that moment--you need to go to the ER immediately because chances are, once the adrenaline wears off, you could go into anaphylactic shock again. 
Slow loris sexual gland secretion isn’t very well understood. So what do we know? It appears to be a chemical concoction of over 200 compounds. One of these compounds is very similar to the allergen in cat dander, but way more powerful. That could be because of chemicals from the sexual gland alone, or because those chemicals mix or react with others in slow loris saliva. That’s a puzzle scientists are still trying to solve.

  • Poor little boyo 🐴 back at the vets for another belt of steroids 💉 today. First one cleared the majority of it but not all of it. It's not as aggressive as before but is flaring back up 🙈. It's not anything fungal as all tests came back negative. Only plus side, it's as if he doesn't even know it's there, he isn't itchy or touch sensitive to it at all. •
Fingers crossed 🤞 a larger dose nips this in the bud otherwise  it will be a case of having to do allergy testing to try and find a cause as can't pin point the trigger 😥. His 10yrs old and never had skin reactions before, so this is very strange. •
▪️ No recent changes in hay supplier
▪️ No changes in supplements ▪️ No changes to washing powders ▪️ Not grazing in fields he hasn't been in before •
Only change was from topspec ulcer cubes to  performance cubes but he has had two bags of that before this happened and vet says that's a very delayed reaction to feed.

In the United States, the precautionary principle is not mandated.

In other words, under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), the law that governs the management of chemicals, chemicals are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Even subsequent amendments to the TSCA have not led to the banning of any of the 694 chemicals reviewed so far, and do not incorporate combinatorial safety testing--failing to account for the synergistic toxicity of multiple exposures.

One significant source of chemical exposures is the cleaning agents we bring into our homes.

Given the growing consumer demand for nontoxic products, greenwashing--using marketing tactics to capitalize upon the desire for cleaning products--has permeated this industry.

Take Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleanse, which contains several ingredients of concern, including methylisothiazolinone, an ingredient of high concern for acute aquatic toxicity, and of some concern for skin irritation, allergies, and damage.

No wonder, then, that is scores a C by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). Method All-Purpose Naturally Derived Surface Cleaner ranks even worse, at an F.

It contains colors, which are nonspecified, and non-mineral cleaning salts, which are problematic due to their correlation in the literature to developmental effects, cancer, DNA damage, skin issues, and deleterious effects on the reproductive, hormonal, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.

A sneaky source of toxicity, however is the added ingredient “fragrance,” which upon first glance, appears innocuous.

In actuality, fragrance can disguise up to 3,163  undisclosed ingredients.

Fragrance can mean phthalates, octoxynols and nonoxynols--powerful endocrine disruptors or their metabolites that lead to hormonal imbalances and other toxic effects. 
Fragrance not only sneaks into cleaning agents, but it is also present in the following: * Hair care
* Cosmetics
* Perfumes
* Facial products
* Antiperspirants
* Lotions
* Diaper creams
* Air fresheners
* Dryer sheets
* Laundry detergents
* Candles

Avoid ‘FRAGRANCE’ unless you know what’s in it.

  • OBSFUCATE RESPONSIBILITY • Yesterday my surgery PA came to see me. Let’s just say I ended up crying (which is very painful after open heart surgery) for a while after she left bc she was genuinely so rude. I am no stranger to doctors telling me after surgeries that I’m not recovering fast enough bc I didn’t walk right after surgery; not to mention that I always do, but apparently it’s not enough. Well, it turns out all of the complications I’ve had are literally textbook EDS. Lung issues are very common, especially if surgery is being done near the rib cage and/or thoracic area, which I’ve experienced.
- 
She was convinced that I just need to walk more and I’ll be fine. Luckily, my GI suggested they do a chest X-ray bc I may look a certain way, but that doesn’t mean anything in this body. Sure enough I had quite a bit of fluid in my right lung, which they drained this this afternoon. 🙃 I also found out my EKG indicated changes that are consistent with pericarditis so they started me on a new med, and ID was brought in to make sure we’re not missing an infection. In him examining me, he pressed on my jugular vein IV and I started crying almost immediately bc it was so painful. I’m hoping it wasn’t infected, but they took it out to be safe. Unfortunately, the PA is a wimp and didn’t come to see me today, bc people with that level of ego will do anything to avoid admitting they’re wrong. I was looking forward to telling her exactly how rude she was. 😆🙃
- 
Having such dismissive doctors is a trigger for me. I’ve been right 95% of the time when I say something is wrong, but they don’t believe me anyway. I was sent home with a pneumothorax last year, a very large amount of fluid collected in my lung and pneumonia a couple years prior, etc. I have ended up being re-admitted after bc I was way too sick to be at home. 🤯
- 
All that to say, stay strong in who you are. If you’re sure something is wrong, listen to your body and make sure it gets checked out. Enjoy this pic of me sitting up like I was asked to do. 🙃

  • HOLY CRAP • I cannot even begin to describe the past 3 days. 🤦🏻‍♀️ They couldn’t extubate me until 6am yesterday morning, about 7 hours after they stopped operating on me. I was in so much pain that I wasn’t breathing, which meant some level (I don’t remember what) was too low to take out the breathing tube. Eventually they had to increase the sedation level bc it was horrible to be in pain and also still be intubated...and I was extremely uncomfortable. Not to mention, leaving in the tube was painful for my throat, so I’m super happy that’s behind me. 😫🙏🏻
- 
The CT surgeon said that this “mass” was massive. They weren’t 100% sure that it was a blood clot until this morning when they got the pathology results. The clot was still slightly attached (barely bc it was about the size of a hair to tether) to my right atrium which is good bc I would have died if it wasn’t. It would have gone straight to my lung and bc it was so big, I would have died pretty quickly. All that to say, I’m so glad he did it on Wednesday instead of waiting and this way I don’t need to get the skeleton crew for the first couple days, like I would have if he operated on Friday. My GI was absolutely shocked I am alive bc that clot was “huge.” 😏
- 
Bc the doctors here (especially residents) were nearly impossible to get to manage my pain, I thought maybe I am being a wimp. Turns out, according to the surgeon’s PA, the surgery he did on me is 3x more painful than when they crack someone’s entire chest open, so that would explain why I’ve been in quite a bit of pain. She also said that bc I’m young it makes the recovery a lot harder. My nerves are young and responsive, whereas an 80 year old may have quite a bit less pain bc their nervous system isn’t as easily excited as mine are. 🤨
- 
I had 5 IVs/lines when I woke up from surgery(2 of which were in my neck), but I’m now down to 3. All this to say: some pain control makes a HUGE difference in my ability to recover; sleep also has a huge impact on my recovery. I’m so glad that it’s done and behind me. 🙌🏼🙏🏻☺️

  • BLOOD CLOT IN HEART • I had a routine echocardiogram scheduled for yesterday (Thursday) by my geneticist bc she has her EDS patients get yearly echos. I went in to my appt kind of annoyed that I had to have this done bc it was so inconvenient and bc I didn’t have any symptoms. 😬 That said, I had been having significant shortness of breath and some chest pain for several days prior to the echo, so I scheduled an appt to see my dr next week bc the SOB got so bad I couldn’t talk w/o being out of breath. 😐
- 
I went to have my echo and the tech kept leaving the room & coming back, while only scanning one spot. I knew something was wrong bc they don’t do that usually. 😳 The cardio came in to see me & showed me a blood clot bouncing around in my right atrium. I spoke to my palliative care NP and she told me to go right to the ER.
- 
The ER dr couldn’t believe the cardiologist said I was fine to go home given how serious it was. (This wasn’t my dr, and it was done at a satellite location for a different hospital that none of my drs are at, except the geneticist.) I am now inpatient and waiting to find out what the cardiothoracic surgery team wants to do. Bc the catheter from my port is in my heart, the cardio said they may need to crack open my chest to get the clot out. 😱
- 
I’m hoping with every fiber of my being that they don’t need to do that bc it’s major surgery. And, just for fun, 🙄 I started having an allergic reaction to the CT contrast they gave me yesterday, out of nowhere. 🤔 It feels like something is stuck in my throat and when I swallow, I cough and gag. They gave me IV meds to help stop the reaction, so I’m hoping they kick in soon. 🙏🏼
- 
I can’t express how angry I am bc I have to be here. 🤯 I can’t stand being in the hospital. 😤 The surgery team should come by tonight and then they’ll decide what to do next, which will be helpful bc I need a plan.

  • Super scary anaphylaxis episode earlier tonight!! I was having a shower and I suddenly went into anaphylaxis, honestly thank god @tomharris.95 was there!! He reacted so so quick and got my Epi-pen & inhaler! Honestly don’t know what would have happened if he wasn’t there 😱 Guys it was so so scary! 😭😭 I honestly don’t know how some of you can deal with anaphylaxis everyday! Thank god it’s a rare occasion for me! 😭 Sorry I feel I’m being way too OTT & dramatic, it was just a super scary experience! 
Also quick question how long does it take for you guys to return to feeling “normal” after epinephrine? And what side effects do you guys get? For me it’s a fast heart rate & headache, still feeling alittle rough but so so much better than I was! 🙏🏼 So thankful to be here writing this post tonight! So thankful for modern medicine & of course you guys! Thank you everyone! 💓💓💓 #anaphylaxis #epipen #allergic #allergicreaction

  • EEEK HEART SURGERY • I found out that I’m going to be having emergent open heart surgery today, in a few hours. It will take about 6-7 hours and they will have to stop my heart from beating, so they’re going to put me on cardiopulmonary bypass. The bypass machine’s job is to circulate blood and oxygen—through my femoral artery—while my heart is stopped. It also does the work for my lungs by making sure I’m getting enough oxygen so that I don’t sustain any damage to my organs. I will also spend some time in the Cardiac ICU for a little bit.
- 
I still can’t comprehend that I was (mostly) okay a week ago and now I’m about to have extremely high risk, open heart surgery. They literally will cut my heart open, stitch it back together and get my heart beating again. Insanity!! 😳😱 It never ceases to amaze me how quickly things can change.
- 
I’m definitely nervous, but mostly numb, but the whole team here is excellent. There will be many people in the OR such as: surgeons, nurses, cardiac anesthesiologists, bypass tech and a couple others which is great, but also nerve wracking. My cardiologist said that this is “a very big deal,” and the CT surgery PA said they don’t ever take simple cases; they only take on the very complicated and risky surgeries, so that’s great. 😐
- 
I’m nervous about post-op pain management given my history, but the team is aware that they will more than likely have to bring in a pain doc. At this point, I’m just looking forward to getting this done and being able to eat. 🙌🏼 My fiancée will try to update how things are going in my Stories, so check there later if you want to know.
