My story about allergies and how I was cured

I've been a healthy person my entire life, never had any allergies to anything until I was around 21. One day I started getting itching sensations everywhere,
in little random spots, and I couldn't help but scratch. There was nothing there, no rashes, nothing that even the dermatologist can see. The itching would also only last for little while, then 'jump' to other spots on my body, and so on. As you can see, nobody can go out in public scratching like a mad man everywhere, so I decided to take Reactin, and it helped. No more itching.

At that time, I couldn't be bothered to find out the cause of this itching. As long as I was taking Reactin, I was fine. I figured I'm probably allergic to dust or something in the air. I even bought special dustproof sheets for my bed and pillow.

I kept taking Reactin for about 5 years when I realized that this is not the solution. It is expensive, and I really don't want to take this medication for the rest of my life. I then decided to go see an allergist 'specialist' here. After doing the random tests, he told me I was allergic to the following:

- chicken
- chocolate
- dogs
- cats
- grass
- dust
- bread
- pollen
- peanuts

This came as a shock to me as I never experienced any symptoms throughout my life when I was around these plants and food. He then suggested that I take shots that included the allergens stated above, in little doses, and that will make my body get used to it. The only catch, I can't take any Reactin while I'm on it. I refused because again, I can't go scratching in public, and also, I didn't believe I was allergic to all these things.

Another year went by when I was talked into going to see another specialist, but a russian doctor named Felix Ravikovich. I figured 'great, same thing again' but I decided to give it a try.

I went to see him, and he explained that his treatment is not guranteed, however, it can only get better. It was only $100 for a 20 shot program, and the cost of the medicine was $100. I was thinking, wow, doesn't he keep any of this money? oh well.. He also sold me his book, for $25, called 'The Histamine Connection - The Plot Against Asthma Allergy Patients'. I thought wow, this guy is milking me for money here, but fine. I'll read his precious little book.

I'm no 'science-tician'
but it opened my eyes. As far as I know, all allergy medicine prescribed out there is called 'anti-histamine'. It stops the production of histamine in the body. For people with allergies, there is an overflow of histamine in the body, and one consequence of that is making the immune system very hypersensitive. Anything (foreign matter) can set it off. This explains why some people get symptoms when around cats, or some around dogs, etc.

So anti-histamine blocks the production of histamine > immune system is calm > no symptoms > no itching, sneezing, etc. Obviously, this is only a temporary relief, and the next day, you have to take another anti-histamine pill.

What I didn't know, is that histamine has many roles in the body. It affects the nervous system, the brain, your stomach, also it's responsible for libido as well. By blocking histamine, your body is having other issues as a result. The cure? you go to a stomach doctor, get more pills for your stomach, have more side effects, and the circle continues. The point is to keep you coming back.

What Dr. Ravikovich does he targets the 'faucet' that produces histamine in the body and repairs it so there isn't an overflow. Let me type that again. REPAIRS IT not blocking it. He goes after the ROOT CAUSE of it, unlike masking the symptoms like our anti-histamine friends.

By doing so, he can actually cure you. He's cured over 3000 patients, including myself, and I never ever imagined I will be off allergy medication.
I've been off it for the past 2 years, and never had the symptoms come back. For this, he got in legal trouble from the Ontario Medical Board and had his license suspended for a bit. They even did a show on TV about him, unfortunately I didn't know about him at the time.

I urge everyone to buy his book for the measley $25 CDN from his website, just google his name, inform yourself, and perhaps you can also be cured like me.

Thanks for taking the time reading this post.

thanx for sharing
do you think he would have gotten into trouble if his treatment had not worked?

kind of silly yet predictable, isn't it?

Do you know what he injected you with?

I know he was injecting me with Bee Venom, starting in very small amounts.

I know Bee Venom does contain histamine. That almost sounds contradictory to what I said earlier, about histamine overflow in the body of allergy sufferers, but there is a method to the madness.

I will have to pull a few quotes from his book perhaps.

wow im glad your cured
... it would suck to be allergic to all of that!! i dont think i'd be able to live with out the "TREASURES" of the world (food, girls, etc... lol)

yeah this story reminds me of when i had my first allergic reaction.

i was 16, and i had just boughten these food that i usually eat all the damn time. then all of a sudden, that day i had one of the craziest allergic reaction. I didnt understand, everything i ate that day i had eaten months/years before and nothing evre happened. So i go to the emergency room and they ask me a bunch of weird questions. Like what you eat/age/and all that stuff. and injected me. it felt better the next day

results was beacuse of sumting i ate that day.........

funny thing is though... just recently i went to go buy all the same things that i ate before but nothing happened!!.. you think it was all a scam? i dont know..

but thanks for the good info, now a days all people is trying to do is make money, they dont care for others anymore. thats what really ticks me off

That's interesting info.

My experience is the opposite and I'm now questioning it.......

From the time I was born until about age 12 I was allergic to absolutlely everything. As an infant I had to drink milk and Karo syrup. As a toddler until puberty it was chocolate, potatoes, corn (only together, never separate) breads, animals or grasses.

Every week I had to get 3 allergy shots in my arm and once a month I had to go and have 'markers' drawn on my back, each one receiving a shot, normally 20 in all.

It seems that these allergies just disappeared over night. I can eat anything, including mashed potatoes mixed with corn, can sleep with feather pillows, and I never have a problem.

Because I was young, I never did question the 'you just outgrew them' thing. Now it seems odd. Like I said, they were just gone.

Would it then be possible that if as a pre-teen, with the onset of puberty I stopped producing an over abundance of histamine?
