Around the age of 10, my daughter started experiencing nausea, dizziness, back pains, stomach pains, and headaches. She is always freezing. Since then, the doctors have told her it was all in her head. She spent a year on antidepressants, but all symptoms stayed the same or were worse. She had her gallbladder out at 15. She is allergic to most trees, grasses, animals, etc. She is now 20, and her symptoms have not lessened. We also went to a homeopathic doctor. He put her on 20 vitamins, but that is hard to swallow. Her hair sample showed zinc levels off the chart. She is currently on thyroid medicine. We are seeking a doctor that believes she has an actual issue, such as autoimmune... Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Hi Allergy I have been suffering from nasal allergy since my second pregnancy last year - from April 2013( I was 4 months pregnant then )I had severe allergy that time. I was unable to sleep in the nights due to breathing difficulty.I used Allegra, Sudafed, Claritin on and off ( never used as a course as I was pregnant)After delivery, the allergy continued but not as severe as when I was pregnant.I went for allergy testing ( skin pricking test ) in USA in december,2013 and I was diagnosed as allergic to DUST MITES and some other environmental factors too. I was given a Fluticasone nasal spray to use. I used it for 3 weeks and stopped it as they are steroids.I came to India for 2 months ( January and February) . I visited a general doctor and was diagnosed as Allergic Rhinitis.  I tested CBC ( Complete Blood Count ) test and thyroid and eosinophilia - all were negative.  The  doctor said it is pure allergy caused due to dust. He prescribed me to use Montair LC for 20 days. Iwas feeling better while using the medicine. After stopping the medicine, the symptoms came back. Then I visited doctor again he told me to use the medicine Montair LC for 15 more days and check it. I used it and was fine and the symptoms returned when I stopped using the medicine. Then, I visited an Ayurvedic doctor in India and was asked to use chywanprash,  SwAsari pravasi, tribhuvankriti Ras and SwAsari ras for 3 months and use Chyawanprash only for 3 years. I started using these Ayurvedic medicines on and off as they have high heat potency. Then, whenever I get severe allergy reactions, I take Montair LC for few days for relief and stop it.  ---- what kind of diet is required for this allergy type??? ---- what foods should I ignore????           I used to take lemon, honey and apple cider vinegar mixed with water fora Few days in the early mornings for increasing my resistance. But as I am not supposed to take citrus fruits I stopped taking this mix. I used to eat oranges and orange juice earlier for increasing the vitamin c levels. Now I stopped taking this as they r citrus too. What should I do to have vitamin C  - any supplements ? I used amlaki ( for vitamin c - it has 500 mg) on and off........should I continue this for vitamin c...???? ----- vitamin d - I tested vitamin D levels here last month - my levels are 38.6 ( my multivitamin has 1000 IU ) ----- I am taking prenatal multi vitamin tablets daily since pregnancy. Can I eat wheat bread as it has GLUTEN in it????? ----- instead of milk, can I drink soy milk or Almond milk with cereal or oatmeal in the mornings for breakfast.... ( for calcium intake ) ???? ( earlier when I drank milk at night after eating food, I had nasal congestion ) - then slowly after I get burping and gases go away, the nasal block relieves again ---- sometimes even if I take heavy meals my nose is blocking and the block relieves once my gases pass away. ----- Nuts ( badam, pecans, walnuts, pista, dates, raisins, peanuts )  - should I stop eating all these nuts??? ----- I started doing pranayama since the last few days. ----- for omega 3 , I am taking chia seeds one tablespoon (2250 mg) daily is it enough or Do I need fish oil or cod liver oil supplement or algal DHA ???? -----Please tell me how to increase my immunity levels for combating these allergies My cousin , ent specialist told me to use Xaria Plus for 3 months course and said it will cure my allergies. Is it safe to use it this way? Please clarify these doubts.......
