But I will say there has been 4 different days that he missed his zyrtec and every time one of thoes symptoms has returned. I myself take zyrtec and if I miss my does I notice notice it before the afternoon. I know it sounds weird but it seems to me that zyrtec helps maybe bc we have too much histamine but I could be wrong. How do you know if you have too much histamine’s? Is it a ENT who can help with this?
Hi Jrl_3327! Did you see my video about candida and looking at our spit? It’s here: http://prettyill.com/videos/watch/are_you_immune_system_challenged_how_to_tell As you’ll hear, I went to FOUR different ENT’s — all of them were perplexed. I found that amazing, as this is not rocket science! Finally, it was seen in my throat via an endoscopy. Jeez Louise! Mine is basically under control with antihistamines (funny that you, too, found Zyrtec so helpful), and a decent diet. I’ve always eaten fairly well (lots of veggies!), but I am not a huge fan of controlling every source of histamine or simple carb that enters my body. I know we NEED some histamine, and I believe our funky immune system is one reason we fight this chronic candida. I’m working on that now, because as most of you know, I seem to have a theory about everything! Ha. One of my doctor friends became PARALYZED, developed geographic tongue, and no one was able to help him! He had to figure out on his own that his system just couldn’t tolerate histamine. Perhaps he and I are now ‘jaded’ and there are doctors out there who can help you. Unfortunately, I ended up going ‘solo’, much like my friend did. If you find a good doctor, please add her or him to our good doctors thread and please keep us posted! A good dentist can give you some mouthwashes to help minimize the pain, meanwhile. 😉
