GAPS protocal provides cure
Published: Thursday, September 20th, 2012
It was March 29, 2011, when it started. Carol Lancaster remembers the date well.
“I was visiting my daughter and I started itching,” the Custer woman says. “I didn’t realize it was hives.”
The problem steadily worsened, with the hives eventually covering her entire body.
“Sometimes my whole face swelled and I looked like I had been in a major fight!” she remembers.
Her face was plastered with hives, her lip swelled up and her nose was covered with them. At first, Carol thought she was allergic to lantana, a plant that grows in Arizona, where she was spending the winter.
She made the decision to stay indoors to lessen her exposure to that or any other pollens that might be affecting her so severely.
“Nothing I did helped,” she says.
Desperate for help, she went to her doctor, who put her on anti-histamines and other medications. He did some blood work to rule out thyroid problems, lupus and valley fever.
