Fibromyalgia, A Real Medical Disease

I really find this study very interesting. A couple of years back my husband and I had to have a blood test for a new life insurance policy and we were mailed the results. In those results I was told that my cytokines levels were consider "high".

They were not alarming, in fact, they were just slightly above average, but I thought it was high enough for me to research why this abnormality may have occurred for me.

My research didn't amount to much two years ago because all I could find was information on RA. I was not diagnosed with RA and thought I might have possibly tested false-positive at the time. But these findings have me thinking much differently now!

I hope this is looked into further and will eventually become a standard to help all sufferers get diagnosed within a matter of months and not years. That would be most refreshing for us all!

Food Allergies and Elimination Diets

Before you chalk your food allergies up to being only a wheat problem, you may want to extend your elimination diet into including water, fruits, and veggies!

Many people, especially Fibro sufferers have been going on elimination diets to see if certain foods are the culprits to their problems. Most have found wheat to be a big issue and once they eliminate that, they start to feel better.

However, there are a select few that still have symptoms, and for those people it has been frustrating because everything seems to bother them. These people may find some relief if they look to their water intake.

A new study finds that pesticides in tap water, fruits, and vegetables may be playing a larger role in America's food allergy epidemic. According to http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/253513.php (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/8624.php), a study published by Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology states that dichlorophenols, a chemical used to chlorinate water and also used in pesticides, is possibly weakening food tolerance in some people. The article goes further in stating that food and environmental allergies are now so common in the US that 15 million Americans have at least one of these allergies.

So should one make the switch to bottled water in hopes of eliminating the problem? Chances are good that you might not. According to the findings pesticides used on fruits and vegetables are causing more of the damage.

I am personally one of those few that seem to be getting an allergic reaction from everything I'm eating. And though I try very hard to eat as healthy and as clean as I can, I'm finding it tough, like most, to buy everything organic.

And with findings like these, I just may start an indoor hydroponic garden! Wish me luck!

Stay fabulous!
Love and friendship,

Kimberley
