Eww! Eww! Eww! My reaction is a beast 🐲! Well, that’s what I think anyway. I guess it could be worse🐾🐾🐾...but it’s totally not cute 🐀! AND it itches 🦔! I got a new blanket yesterday and I didn’t wash it before I used it...🤦🏻♀️! Also, I got some new oil candles that I’m not sure what they are made of but did I call to see the ingredients before I burned them? NOPE! Why would I! Ugh! To be fair the candles & blanket were so beautiful 😍 that I had to snuggle with the blanket while watching the flames 🔥 on the candles. It was calming & peaceful 🍂. Now, well, it’s time to become a chemist 🔬and see what is causing my new necklace . 😫😫😫! #nofilter#alphagal#allergies#mybodyismytemple#fueltobefabulous
I love this Pit Paste and her shop is on Etsy! RawkinSpirit! It was custom made for me and it is created Alpha Gal safe! It allowed me to heal from the cuts under my arms that I was receiving using the not so safe brands and the sent is my signature scent now! Also, it’s created with doRERRA essential oils that is also an ethical brand and vegan! Oh! And it travels very well! I am able to add some of it to a reusable plastic container that fits into my travel essential bag easily.
Also, I added the photos of the healing that has happened under my arms so that you can see the results that I have received by using this paste in less then a month. Guys! I had those cuts for years!
I wanted to cry when I opened the box. I love this little charm. It’s so dainty and so amazing. On one side it has the medical symbol & the words “First Aid”, on the other side its says, “I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart: I have overcome the world. John 16:33” Guys! This is a promise from God for peace! Do you know what that means! That means that even when I’m sick or reacting I still have a promise of peace through it all. I pray that whoever will take care of me & finds my little marker charm & eventually my first aid kit and Epi also has peace when s/he figures out how to treat me...Oh my Lord, I trust you. #jkcdesigns#firstaid#keychain#rareallergies#allergies#alphagal#alphagalsafe#john1633#fueltobefabulous
Okay, okay, okay! Confession time...🤭! Hum... How can I say this? Well, I’m just gonna say this point blank...I am a sucker for bags! I love them! I use to have a billion of them before I became a minimalist and well if I can help create one that reflects my personality then I’m so there! So, I needed an insulated case for my Epi and mammal free first aid stuff so I ran to Etsy! I found a creator of an insulated bag that was willing to take my favorite colors and create something beautiful and I love love love what the final results are! Guys! The detail in this bag are amazing and it fits everything that I need to be safe when I’m out during the day. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 #firstaid#firstaidkit#veganmeds#curad#visine#doterra#unisom#auviq#advilfilmcoated#healing#rareallergies#allergies#alphagal#alphagalsafe#fueltobefabulous
Cucumber on the eyes is like being at the spa, right?!? Over 24 hrs- I haven’t had a headache like this since my diagnosis- which makes me believe I ate something with mammal in it. Had some heart palpitations and GI issues last night but nothing severe #thankfully .
Did you know that bandages are not all created equal? 😱! NOPE! They sure aren’t! Most bandages have mammal in them especially in the sticky part...🐷🐮🦄...I’m not sure what kind but to be honest my skin isn’t picky...it will react to all mammal not just 🐮...so, I stocked up! I wonder if 300 bandages are enough? 🤔. #curad is vegan! #alphagalsafe#alphagal#mybodyismytemple#firstaid#fueltobefabulous
Guess who got her very first jacket today?! This is a dream come true. I've always dreamed of a black jacket but never thought it was possible. Dreams really can come true. .
Thank you @johnsonville for making top quality cheddar sausages out of turkey for those with beef/pork allergies! Was excited to be able to make one of our favorites for dinner again since hubbies allergy diagnosis! :) #foodporn#alphagal#allergies#tickssuck#tennessee
I’ve been thinking about posting this. It’s a huge win for me but is very personal considering it’s location non the less I’m posting. Guy! Guess what! I finally found a safe deodorant! I’m so excited! See the red...it’s where my arms fold over under my arms. The red is new skin. Healing skin! It comes from me finding a deodorant that has no Alpha Gal in it! One that I’m not reacting to and one that I am starting to heal with! The creator of the “Pit Paste” also has AlphaGal and knows what I can and can not have. I’ve suffered from perpetual cuts for years. It hurt so bad and unfortunately I did not only have cuts only under my arms but other girly places as well. This “paste” has brought healing for me there as well! I’m posting this to show that suffering is something that isn’t always visible. We don’t know what the next guy is going through and what little healing wins they are conquering. This is a huge win for me. #raredisease#invisibleillness#alphagal#mybodyismytemple#healing#fueltobefabulous
Stop putting bandaids on bullet holes! I am so happy for my Plexy Friend!! ❤️👊🏼❤️👊🏼❤️👊🏼❤️👊🏼❤️ “In my 20's I developed food allergies but it wasn't until 4 years ago that I found out I have an anaphylactic allergy to red meat. This was devastating to me. In addition to the allergy diagnosis I started developing severe skin issues. The pictures on the left are from just 3 months ago. They show how bad it looked but what they don't show is the deep swelling under the skin. It hurt to wash my face. It hurt for my boys to give me a kiss on the cheek. It even hurt to lay my head on a pillow. My face would throb like it had a pulse. I would apply and reapply makeup all day long. For years, I researched, I went to doctors, I tried new and popular products and the issues only continued. The tears I shed were too many to count. I smiled but I was tired and drained both physically and emotionally. I remember the exact day that I handed my struggles over to God and literally said "Jesus, take the wheel!"
Fast forward: I met my friend June Lawson who encouraged me to try Plexus. She has her own great testimony! I started with the Triplex and around the 2nd month huge changes started happening. The redness and swelling started to disappear. I couldn't believe my eyes! I was being healed from the inside out! I get to be a mother and a wife again without the constant obsession of finding a cure for my health issues or scheduling another doctor visit. I get to go to work and into public without worrying if people are staring at my skin. I don't have to hide anymore or avoid social events. Thank you Plexus for giving me my life back!! Most importantly, thank you God for allowing me to be healed!” Look below at this crazy transformation‼️😱✨ #triplex#healthyinsidesmakehealthyoutside#guthealthforlife#alphagal#alphagalallergy#immunesystemreboot#healthyguthealthyskin#face#acne#gut#guthealth#probiotics#beetroot#glow#allergy#plantbased#vegetarian#vegan
Alpha-gal is an identified type of food allergy to red meat and the condition begins with a bite from a lone star tick that transmit a sugar molecule called alpha-gal.
Lone Star Tick is native to Texas but it's now conquering eastern part of the US and the number 1 cause of adult-onset food allergy and anaphylaxis in North Carolina.
6 Ways To Repel Lone Star Tick
1) Also make sure that the insect repellent contains DEET, picardin, IR3535, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus (OLE), para-menthane-diol (PMD), or 2-undercanone on exposed skin, always making sure to follow the manufacturer's directions.
DO NOT USE INSECT REPELLENT ON BABIES WHO AREN'T 2 MONTHS OLD YET. IT'S BEST TO CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR FIRST BEFORE USING AN INSECT REPELLENT.
These tips may change overtime and are not intended to replace doctor consultations or advises.

One of these things is not like the other. Who would guess that a tiny little pill could cause a reaction? Stomach pain and heart palpitations if I take the one on the left. All fine if I take the one on the right. Sucks I bought the wrong one.

When an accidental vegetarian needs an iron boost you make this funky stuff for dinner. Beet + molasses + prune + avocado + banana + raspberries + vanilla + oj. Tomorrow will be a mix of parsley, kale and spinach. #alphagal#imissmeat
When you find out ticks can make you allergic to red meat. ...
@johneastman_qdma is bringing out the big guns and tank-mixing permethrin for treating hunting and outdoor work clothes. And yes, it’s true. Some ticks can make you allergic to a carbohydrate in all mammalian meat. It’s called #AlphaGal allergy. Protect yourself from this and other tick-borne diseases by treating your clothes with repellents and checking yourself throughly after you’ve been in the woods. The sooner you remove attached ticks, the more likely you prevented them from transferring diseases.
