Wegener's Granulomatosis an autoimmune disease
I was diagnosed with Wegener's Granulomatosis in 1994 when I was 13. My symptoms (joint pain, anemia, vasculitis, respiratory/lung problems, sinus issues) began the year I began puberty. I have been on and off of prednisone, Bactrim, Methotrexate for a while, and Imuran for the last 9 years (never did take cytoxan.) I want to get off these meds!
So after all these years I am realizing maybe there is a link with the timing of the disease. I have been fortunate to have 2 healthy boys since then and realized my health was at it's best (off medicines) while I was pregnant with my first. (Extra progesterone in my system possibly?)
After lots of research, I am changing my diet/environment to avoid all xenoestrogens as possible, figuring I may have an estrogen dominance or low progesterone or both. In the mean time I had an ASYRA test done and discovered that I have lots of allergies to foods although I have never had a severe outward reaction.
I am trying to decide which natural progesterone cream will be the best for me. My concern is after doing the Asyra test my results show I have a (weakened/yellow) sensitivity to macadamia nuts. Would this mean that I should avoid Natpro specifically since one of the ingredients is organic macadamia oil?
I appreciate your time!!
