So you develop the allergy after being bitten by a tick! Hmmm... Is this something new or has it been around for thousands of years and the cause only determined now? Has something changed in ticks? Maybe pesticide or monsanto related?
* Shortness of breath
With a meat allergy, these same signs appear — but often not until three to six hours after the meat is eaten.
* Vomiting, nausea
* Swollen tongue and throat
* Problems with breathing, such as wheezing, that may quickly worsen
* Weak, racing, or irregular heartbeat
* Hives, reddened skin, and itching
* Speech that is slurred
If you experience any of the signs of anaphylaxis, you should call 911 immediately, says Ogbogu
Meat Allergy: A New Concern
Doctors use ethanol (pure alcohol) to remove the parasite and Dr. Van Nunen said this stunned the tick before it was scraped off.
"I now tell tell everybody I see who lives anywhere near ticks to use `Aerostart' or a high-alcohol substance to stun the tick," she said.
Dr. van Nunen said Aerostart, a spray-on engine cleaner that contains ethanol, was effective in safely removing ticks.
"It is stunned and then you scrape it out, and it can't inject what it injects."

Methinks this little tick has had some help with its evolution.

I finally after 10 plus years gave into the temptation of some pork BBQ this summer, WOW!!! NOT worth it! Aside from the allergic type reaction which is almost like a heartattack, I honestly felt something very very interesting.
After eating a few bites, I could literally feel my energy go from the crown chakra and slowly slide down until all my energy seemed to come from below the base chakra.
Afterwards not only feeling sick but unable to force myself to vomit, I tried everything and could not get the flesh to rise up my body to come out my mouth!
The dead flesh sat in my stomach and it was as if gravity changed for me and the only direction it was going to go would have to be down...
There is something so significant about the energy behind eating meat, this dimension, higher dimensions, gravity to name just a couple things.
I had tick fever last summer, so this topic interests me.
I don't eat pork but I take issue with this post. The holier than thou attitude of most vegans is sickening. Meat is not lowering your vibratory state, nor is plant matter raising it. Yes it sat in your stomach highly processed meat takes a long time to digest especially if your body is unused to it. But as far as you being "higher" because you don't eat meat that is some vegan egotistical hogwash.
My dog has developed allergies, could it be related to this? What can be done?

I have a good friend who has had this allergy for 2 years now and yes, it is that serious. Several trips to the ER due to delayed anaphylaxis. She also lost 20 pounds and is skinny as a rail now. It took 6 months just to get it diagnosed and the whole time she kept eating meat and getting sick from it.
Ticks are everywhere here in Virginia, I've had 5 or 6 bite me already this year.
I'm going to take this seriously.
