    Has anyone done a detox cure/diat?

    I#mnot looking to loose weight - but I really need to rid my body of all the crap I've been eating.

    I've been having alot of problems with allergic reactions for a while now and friday night just took the winning prize.
    I've always had hayfever - for years - but that used to be all I was allergic to. Since last year though, I've pretty much started getting allergic to EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. Mostly fruits and vegetables. Sometimes it's only an itch in the mouth and other times I break out in hives. For example apples, carrots, lemons, limes, oranges, apricots, bell peppers and califlower. The worst one though has been peaches. (which is sad, because I LOVE peaches).
    The peach thing started last year and has periodically gotten worse, and friday night took the cake, as I ended up in the E-room. It started out last year by me getting a few hives on my wrists, then a few more hives on my arms until I decided not to eat peaches anymore. This winter I had something with peach and was perfectly fine, so I just shrugged it off as being something that was there for a few weeks. Well friday night I was in Colonge on a Uni-trip and we went out and got some drinks friday night. I had a cocktail with coconut and cream in it - and a friend had a peach cocktail. I took a sip of hers and finished off my drink before I completly broke out in hives. It started out at my wrists and within 10 minutes time my body was literally covered in hives (even on my head), my face was swallon and I could hardly open my eyes, or hear barely hear anything because my ears were also swollon shut. I started getting a bit panicy - and so did my friends so we went to the e-room, where they gave me fluids and kept me until everything went back a bit. :(
    I have NO idea from WHAT that came from - I can't really imagine it coming from such a tiny sip of something with peach syrup in it... Now I'm afraid to eat anything I had that night because of the sever reaction I got from what ever was in what I ate.
    I'm feeling better now, although the whole thing got my a horrible headache and scabes on my head and my eyelids that haven't gone away yet. =(
    I'm thinking about trying a detox cure to see if that will help get all the toxins out and maybe not let me react so badly to so many things.

    You may need to go get allergy tested and start on shots. The aleergy testing can determine what you are allergic to and how bad your reaction will be.

    If I were you I'd also start carrying an epi pen, let your friends and family know you carry one and where you keep it. You can get one of those health I.D bracelets thats says Allergies: epi pen in purse and has a contact number of someone close to you who could meet you at the hospital if you need to be transported there.

    Just a tiny sip COULD do it, but it might be that it was a combo of things, not just the peach.

    A friend of mine has a deathly reaction to just a bare hint of orange oil.

    A detox certainly won't hurt. It's a long shot that it will clear out the allergy, but it will help on a lot of levels, and if you do it before you take the allergy tests you should get a better read on what exactly is causing trouble.

    Oh, I'm definatly planning on getting an allergy test done. I do want to avoid shots though =/

    Doing the detox before the test isn't a bad idea... I'll when I get an appointment when I call tomorrow and ask about it. :)

    A lot of docs think detox is silly . . . especially since it can cut into the need for more health care for some people ;)

    Mine does homeopathics as well as common medicine so she may be open to the idea - at least I would hope so. ^^

    I would tell you what I detoxed with, but I'm not sure you can use it with your fruit allergies. It was almost straight lemon juice with red pepper. I had to add molasses because it was just too sharp for me, but it definitely cleaned me out. Google Master cleanse.

    Small update: I had a doctors appointment yesterday to do an allergie test - which she couldn't do because my hayfever is so bad (I think you used the phrase "You'd explode if I did a prick test now". So I got blood taken and will get the results next week.
    She also perscribed me an Epipen which I have to take everywhere. :(

    :( the blood test is pretty worthless IMO. Scratch tests are much better but if you're that reactive your doc is right. Anything will set it off which sucks.

    I can tell you what made a world of difference for me as far as allergies. Singular, Loratadine, a dehumidifier for my house, and an air filter for my bedroom. I also take a shower before bed time to wash off any pollen.

    Ugh yeah, right now my allergies are just going insane. :eek: I live in the 7th floor and my entire city is covered with these huge pollen things that just fly everywhere. If I open my window everything flys in. Unfortunatly its really hot outside so I have to let air in at least in the morning and in the evening since I don't have an AC. :(

    Can you get raw honey that is made locally? If you can, take a tablespoon of it every day. It won't help right away, but it will make a big difference in your reactivity over the long run.

    Welcome to the Epi-Pen world. :D

    I've had to keep several around the house due to my deathly allergy to bee stings and some wasps as well. I'm also allergic to Penicillan. Thankfully, I don't have any food allergies. Oh, I also have inhalant allergies, and this latest batch of horse hay (Coastal Bermuda from California) has got me a mess, including hives on my arms from contact.
