Around 2000 my adrenals and thyroid crashed due to a period of horrendous stress. The adrenal insuffiency caused other organs to slow down and become congested, including my liver, which resulted in the worst case of hives I've ever seen. I would break out in hives from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, and I also had the form of urticaria that makes your eyelids and lips swell up, so that I often looked like a puffer fish. To say that is was disfiguring along with being the worst misery ever, is an understatement. But those were minor problems compared to the times my throat swelled up. Then it became life-threatening.
My naturopath, Dr. Letitia Watrous, of Spokane, WA guided me through the healing process without me having to resort to hormone replacement, which causes further atrophy of the glands. However, the hives persisted. When I finally made it through the 3-day fast she insisted upon, the hives were reduced by half, but I could never get past that point until I came across the Hulda Clark protocol, which of course was known long before she advised its use. The liver-gallbladder flush was the ONLY procedure that finally cured my hives after 23 months of suffering. I've done about 10 so far. The last two all I got was "chaff" without any stones. See the photos on my site http://www.truthquest2.com on the "Alternative Cancer Treatment" page where I have provided a link.
For those of you who wonder about or buy into the claim that it is the treatment itself that causes the stones, try food coloring or even safer-- powdered beet from any health food store that carries bulk herbs, and add that to your oil/juice mix. My adrenal failure, liver congestion and resulting severe urticaria were no figments of the imagination, nor was the cure.
By the way, I joined a Yahoo urticaria (hives)forum after being cured by the flush and they basically blasted me off the site for daring to suggest alternative treatments for hives and mentioning the flush instead of the drug info they were sharing with each other. I tried the drugs out of desperation. They did NOTHING!
