Hello, Heidi! I have a question for you about the AB multivitamins & multiminerals. I have been taking both of them (and the probiotic & the deflect) since February.
Earlier this month, I started breaking out in an itchy, welty(red, raised off the surface of the skin), rash. It only happened at night and so I thought some nasty fleas had decided to move off our pets and into our bedding...a though cleaning did not do any good.
To cut to the chase, the only thing that seemed to make this rash re-occur was if I took the multivitamins or ate something with curry powder so I thought the offending substance with either the fenugreek and/or the turmeric since both are in the multivitamins and both are my curry powder.
I then resumed taking the multimineral because neither are in it. The rash came back. I stopped taking both the multimineral and the multivitamin and eating curry and the rash disappeared.
The reaction happens faster if I get overly warm. I have assumed that I am allergic to something in them and stopped consuming them.
The problem is this: I was taking the vitamins and minerals in the first place because when I do not my cuticles on my fingers get tender & tear easily, then they get hard and then they hurt like heck and start to pull away from the nails themselves and I get tons of hangnails and the skin on my fingers get really dry, but when I was taking the vitamins and minerals my hands were fine.
I do not think that eating fish will do any good as I was eating regular 5oz portions of wild salmon before I ever tried taking the vitamins or minerals. My guess it that I need one or more of the B vitamins, but I'm not sure. If I am correct, I don't know which ones or how much. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you. Eagle
Greetings, Eagle ~ Do this first: have a ground lamb patty (or some small portion of any cut of lamb) for five days in a row, and drizzle it with a bit of olive oil before eating. On the second day, resume the vitamins & minerals. Let me know your results after the five days.
Best wishes, dear! :-D
I'm type O (with green eyes, so probably non-Secretor?), and with a bit of experimenting, I've found that wheat and corn can literally switch on and off what feels like arthritis (joint pain and swelling in about half the major joints of my body -- notably the ones I've abused over the years). I feel great when I'm "being good". At 50, I feel and move better than I have since my early thirties. But I have not been able to detect such strong effects from other "Avoid" foods. So, I wonder if there might be a hierarchy of "badness" among the Avoids, and if that might be fairly consistent for most people within a blood type. Is this a valid assumption, and where might the info be? I don't find it in any of the books or in the typeBase. I mean, how much bad can I be doing myself by having a Mineola tangello every day when they're in season? YUM-alicious! If a credible source were to say that I'm doing such'n'such damage, every bit as bad as the wheat and corn, then I'd give up the Mineolas in a minute... not happily, but I would, honest. :-) Thanks for any pointers or insight, Kevin M.
Hi, Kevin! I believe you've re-submitted your question because you missed the answer which appeared here. Be well, buddy! :-D
