I have shared my journey on this blog. To catch up on my progress make sure to read:
With the warmer weather and summer finally here, I've been able to notice a difference in my mood and in my symptoms.
On my last update, I mentioned I had fallen and hurt my back. I also developed hand pain and was having difficulty typing.
My chronic pain carried into May but finally went away. From that point on, I felt ten times better.
My Health Survey
Before starting the kit, you fill out a health survey. There is a rating from 0-3, with 3 being the most troublesome. Symptoms are categorized into 8 sections – neurological, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory, urinary system, skin, and females only.
This gives a snapshot of your symptoms and how you're feeling before trying the kit.
Once you finish the treatment, you fill out the survey again to see if there is any difference.
For me, there was. Let's break this down:
- Neurological: Before I started my total was 31. After I finished, it's 11.
- Gastrointestinal: Before I started my total was 13, after, 4.
- Musculoskeletal: Before I started my total was 15, after, 2.
- Respiratory: Before I started my total was 47, after, 14.
- Skin: My total remained the same at a 3.
- Females only: Before I started my total was 21, after, 6.
My grand total before starting The Allergy Kit was 130. After finishing the kit, my new total is 40.
There were some interesting improvements during this time. The two greatest improvements of my health were neurological and respiratory.
Neurological symptoms I scored as severely troublesome before starting the kit were:
- Loss of pleasure/interest
- Crying spells
- Decreased sense of smell
After using the kit, all of them went away except for my irritability, indecisiveness and decreased sense of smell. These went down only.
I feel with the warmer weather and overall better health, I am much happier. Is the kit responsible? I'm not sure, but there is a stress vial and this could have helped.
The symptoms I scored severely troublesome on the respiratory section included:
- Nose congested
- Nose runny
- Eye itching
- Eye watering
- Eye redness
- Dark circles under the eye
- Ears, deep itching
- Post nasal drip
- Shortness of breath
- Trouble moving air in and out
- Air is not satisfying
- Smothering feeling
After using the kit, my symptoms drastically improved. Again, I feel this is primarily due to spring being over. My seasonal allergies are the worst during transitional times of the year.
It will be fun to find out how my allergies will be once fall arrives. My allergies during this period have more to do with breathing difficulty and post-nasal drip than anything else.
Am I Cured?
I suffer from seasonal allergies, I am lactose intolerant and I have a sensitivity to wheat products.
How are my seasonal allergies? Manageable. My eyes are still itchy and I still have to use eye drops every morning, but I'm not blowing my nose throughout the day anymore.
How is my lactose intolerance? I can usually handle having a few dairy products in a day – cream in my coffee, sour cream in my taco salad and milk for dinner. It's only if I eat an excessive amount of dairy do I notice issues with my digestion.
My lactose intolerance hasn't changed, but I haven't tried eating more dairy than I'm used to.
How is my wheat sensitivity? I'm still sensitive to wheat and I'm still working on cleaning up my diet.
I have twin toddlers and I find it hard to cook meals from scratch when I have two children running around me.
So, am I cured? I feel my allergies are better. As I mentioned, I will wait until the fall to see if The Allergy Kit actually worked.
Over to you – have your tried The Allergy Kit yet? What are your impressions?
Maybe I'll run through the kit again and see if I can improve my results.
