At the very beginning of my downhill health slide, I was diagnosed with delayed allergic reactions to foods. Black Pepper, Oregano, Oats, and Rye. What a bummer right? For the past few years, I’ve just avoided these foods assuming the medical field had gotten one thing right. Of course, not so much.
I got a new round of herbs over the holiday. Christmas morning I sat with my family and had a wtf moment as a wave of dizziness washed over me. This is what my delayed allergies feel like. Its like the feeling you get going over a rollercoaster but in your head. You want to pass out and throw up simultaneously. Its brief but truly awful and you feel weird for a while after. So, I call and ask who spiced my herbs? Of course no one did. They don’t need seasoning.
Lyme had invaded my pituitary gland in my brain. The new herb that I had been using had effected this gland and gone off in flashing lights where the Lyme was still living. I had never had allergies. Foods like Black Pepper, Oregano, and Oats stimulate the pituitary causing this neurological reaction they had misdiagnosed as an allergy.
I, for one, am ecstatic. This means that after treating this section of the brain responsible for many of my cortisol and adrenal issues (the pituitary controls most of your hormones) I would be able to have all these delicious foods again seasoned with pepper and oregano! Not to mention, I am sure I will feel a hell of a lot better. I am already planning my 2 month binge into Italian food.
What concerns me is when diagnosed my doctor told me he diagnoses people with delayed allergies almost every day. That means for the 3 years its been since I’ve seen him, he has diagnosed about 1,000 people incorrectly. Its realizations like this that make me panic for all the people who have to go down this road because of doctors being blind to Lyme. I absolutely will be making a call to this doctor and hope that my knowledge is well received. On the positive side, food will be delicious again one day.
