When I was pregnant with Daisy my allergies - dust, mold, cats, dogs, latex - totally went away. It was a MIRACLE and I was hoping they wouldn't come back after I gave birth.
Buuuuut, not so much.
Actually they've got worse if you can imagine and my mold allergy is so severe that Claritin and even allergy shots have stopped working for me. For the past month I've actually had to sleep in our extra bedroom away from Chino and the baby because the mildew in our bedroom is trying to KILL me.
Chino bleached the whole room for me and even washed my entire closet of clothes but I think the little mold spores got into the mattress or something. Whatever the case if I spend more than 15 minutes in there I'll end up wheezing and on my way to not being able to breathe - AT ALL.
:) The good news there though is at least Chino missed me too much and has moved into the spare bedroom with me. We're on the floor - lol with the baby next to us - but at least we're together. :)
ANYWAYS. Chino's aunt swears to God that this special doctor she goes to CURED her asthma with some special drops that she took under her tongue a few times a day for about 3 months or so.
I can't grasp it and my westernized brain just won't let me believe it - there has to be SOME sort of explanation - like she never really had real asthma - but she swears it and her kids do too so. . . . huh.
Chino's been bothering me for a couple of months to go see this witch doctor and I've been stubbornly swatting him away. We got into a bit of a verbal tryst about it last week and it seems that his feelings might be getting hurt by me not giving in to him so - FINE - off to the kook I went.
He was actually a very nice man and seemed knowledgeable enough. And unlike my husband he reacted quite well when I asked flat out "How is it that you can cure my allergies if the United States of America can't?" "Why don't they use these medicines in the U.S.?" At one point I even blurted out "No Manches" which is the Mexican form of "Whatever" or "No way" to the man and he just smiled at me.
Meanwhile Chino was shitting his pants.
It got a little weird when he examined me. He looked in my eye's throat and then simply asked me to take off one of my shoes and socks.
He wanted to see my nakkid foot?
What the hell right?
It turned out that he had some weird little electro-measurement-device deal that looked like it came from a Frankenstein movie and he asked me to hold on to a copper tube connected to some wires, a pointer stick and the machine. While I held the copper tube he touched each of my toes and fingers with the pointer stick and watched the meters on the Frankenstein measurement box go up and down.
He didn't say much about it - I guess my battery is charged enough? He asked me a few more normal questions, wrote me a prescription and said that if I take the drops faithfully that my allergies will not only go away temporarily but that they will never come back.
Much to Chino's relief I'm taking the drops faithfully 3 times a day and waiting for something to happen. It's been 3 days and I've not seen any improvement but I guess we'll wait and see. I Googled the ingredient on the label so at least I know I'm not ingesting uranium or anything freaky, just some stinging nettle concentrate - yummy.
Any of you all have luck with Homeopathic medicine?
Wish me luck :)
