If I'm Crazy, Why Am I Itchy?
by Miss D
If I'm crazy, why am I itchy?
Have been fighting something for several years. Family has it too. Progressive orange peeling of face. Discoloration. Bumps. Hair loss. Itchy nose, eyelids, inside ears.
Finally found a doctor to test me, but things are strange and I had to collect the sample myself.
So I got the results today. No demodex. Ok. I was crushed. What is it then? If the lab says its not demodex, does that mean they didn't look for anything else? The results don't say no yeasts, no M.furfur, no fungus, no steph, it just says 'no demodex'.
And I'm frustrated because I wanted to have it solved so I can treat us with prescription anti parasites for the right length of time and be done with it.
But the test results really mean nothing. I only got stuff off the surface, not a piece of skin with the glands or even the root of a plucked hair.
I just feel lost and alone and without any help. The test really means nothing since some common fungus need to be saved in oil for testing etc, etc. And I don't even know if they looked for anything else.
There is so much on the web about people being considered crazy if they think that their symptoms are from more than a freak auto immune response or hormones.
If I'm crazy, why does my nose itch and eyelids itch and my ears. Why is my face getting ruined? The crazy label (and the fear of being labeled it) just makes this so much harder.
I'm not crazy to want to know what is causing these problems. I'm not crazy to want a better answer than I get from the doctors which is 'your body is just attacking itself, deal with it and treat the symptoms.'
I read an article allegedly written by a doctor about this disgusting patient she had who thought he had skin parasites, brought in a bunch of old buggers for her to look at, and who reeked of the raw garlic he was eating. The doctor was so contemptuous.
Yeah, how crazy of a guy to think a doctor might examine something with a microscope or send it for testing that the patient would pay for, or that she might treat him with respect and dignity.
Why did he bother going in to see the doctor, why didn't he just drop off his money with reception and skip the appointment?
I'm not crazy. But I'm afraid to be labeled it. I'm frustrated that I got no results and that I may or may not have demodex or something else.
Dear Miss D.,
You have my complete sympathy and understanding regarding what you're going through. It is ridiculous that we have to be afraid of going to the doctor and asking questions for fear of being labeled crazy or delusional, etc. Unfortunately, that's the world we live in these days.
Although I can't diagnose your condition and tell you exactly what you are dealing with, I CAN give you a step-by-step protocol to follow that should pretty much guarantee you some good results.
Because I get so many questions/comments like yours here on the website, I've consulted with several health practitioners in order to provide a general solution that should help most people get results using natural supplements (and in some cases dietary changes).
Whatever is attacking your body and causing all these symptoms isn't going to stop until you cleanse out your internal system and give your body some powerful resources to fight, heal, and repair.
It's less important to know "what" is causing this problem than to know "how" to deal
with it. Let's concentrate on the how for you.
The protocol below is made up of a combination of AIM products which gives you the added advantage of a money back guarantee if you don't get results.
- Herbal Fiberblend - this is an internal cleanser with multiple anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs, as well as benefits like anti-inflammatory effects, detoxing, calming the nerves, muscles, etc.
You'll take the Herbal Fiberblend twice per day, starting with 1 tsp. at a time and working your way up to 1 tablespoon at a time (a bit more if you are heavier than average).
- AIMega - this is a combination of essential fatty acids including Omega 3, 6, and 9. These are very important for anti-flammatory properties as well as maintaining overall health and healing in the body. Take 1 capsule 3 times per day.
- BarleyLife - this is a whole food nutritional supplement made of the freshly juiced young barley grass and is rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that will enable your body to repair damaged cells and create healthy new cells.
The more good nutrition your body has, the better it is equipped to heal and repair itself as well as make you just feel so much better.
You would start out taking the BarleyLife twice a day (2 tsp. at a time), but you can increase as needed or desired.
- Redibeets - In your particular case, I would also recommend that you take the Redibeets - 1 tsp. per day - to help detoxify your liver because of description you've given of your skin condition on your face, etc.
When the liver is struggling to process toxins in the body and can't keep up, it is quite common for the excess to be sent to the skin (particularly the face). You may be able to get sufficient results with the first three foundational supplements mentioned above, but if you want the best results the fastest, add the Redibeets to your regimen.
- Florafood - this is a combination of 3 probiotics that replenish the good bacteria in your body. Think of it as sending in an army of reinforcements to fight for you. Even taking as little as 2 capsules a day can make a big difference, particularly when you are taking the other supplements already mentioned.
Apart from the protocol suggested above, you can make some dietary changes that will give you a quicker recovery, too. You know what I'm going to say, don't you? :)
Cut out the sugar and processed foods! Yep! That's something that we all know is a good idea but most of us find it very difficult to carry out.
I find that if I think of it as a short term deal, it's easier to make the changes needed. Even if you make ONE small change every week or two in your diet, it can make a significant difference in the long run.
One final caution... You said you've been fighting this condition for several years. Be realistic with yourself. Yes, following this protocol should give you some immediate results that you should notice within weeks, but don't expect to be completely recovered instantly.
If you've dealt with it for years, there is no doubt that your body is going to take some time to really cleanse and re-build itself. STICK WITH IT!
There is absolutely no sense in getting a temporary relief and then stop and allow the problem to return with a vengeance. All of these supplements are safe to use for the long haul (I use most of them myself) and can/will improve your quality of life if you let them. To your good health!
