My mother has always had arrhythmia. She thought it must have been normal. She would usually cough and it would stop. She now suffers from AF(artrial fibrillation) or at least that's the latest diagnosis. She has had 3 episodes when her heart rate would go up to over 200 bpm. What's so strange is the fact that this always happens in the Spring (April or May). The episodes have occurred almost a year apart (each Spring) for the past three years. I would like to know if her natural histamine, a chemical produced by the immune (disease-fighting) system of the body, could have something to do with this happening each Spring.

I ve been dealing with dysbiosis , candidiasis and leaky gut. I am now on a biofilm protocol. For the past two days I ve been getting hives all over my body as a reaction to eating. I am on the body ecology diet and have been following it fully. My face gets flushed after I eat. It happens after eating anything. Could a leaky gut get so bad that anything gets through and causes a histamine reaction??

Hi, I have a problem with my ear. It all started with simple sneezing that made both of my ears itchy inside. The itchiness goes down from my ears (inside) to my throat. Sometimes I feel like my throat is dry and the sides of lips itch too. I've tried consulting an EENT doctor, she said my ear drum was inflammed, so she recommended that I take an anti-histamine tablet. The generic name was Ceterizine. I've been taking that tablet for like 3 weeks now. The itching stops though but I don't think I'm completely healed. What could be the problem? I'm really worried right now that it might be a fungal infection, I don't want fungus/bacterium eat my tissues inside! What do I need to do?
