For two years i had been suffering from chronic severe pain, severe itchy skin 24/7 with flakes falling off. Sleepless nights and a pretty bad temper too ( I dont do ill or sleep deprived too well )
I tried vegetarian diet, washing in rain water, drinking bottled water.
I had allergy tests that revealed I was allergic to my family dog, so rehomed him and still no better so that was a load of shit.
I saw three consultants who said it was hives, then psoriasis and this and that. None of these guys had a clue.
I was put on a course of steroids that ballooned my weight for a short time till i worked it off again.
Then I went vegan last year, which was when i discovered a few things....
I found out that i was dairy intolerant and also allergic to potatoes, tomatoes, paprika ( all relatives of the nightshade family) Yes I still smoke tobacco (which is also a nightshade plant ) but so far the smoking doesnt seem to cause me any chronic pain or rash.
So i came off dairy and stopped eating nightshades and Wham im back to normal health. No chronic pain, no rash or severe itch. IM BETTER YIPPEEE.
I am back to eating meat again as my diet is already limited i couldnt stay vegan.
But would like to thank the vegan world for inspiring this change because had i not tried illiminating foods from my diet i would still be in pain.
