Alpha-gal

Alpha-gal what is it exactly?

Alpha-gal allergy is an allergy to the carbohydrate molecule attached to the proteins found in all mammal meat and their by products. For those who are the most reactive it can trigger a condition called mast cell activation syndrome where their mast cells become over active and release histamines in response to so many things. Plus others on here have developed other allergies that they have to manage. It is confusing.

If you are newly diagnosed you need to focus on removing all mammal meats from your diet. If you are still having reaction go a step further and remove the by products like vitamin d3, gelatin, glycerin, and additives made from mammal to prepared foods that can be listed as natural flavors, mono and diglycerides, carrageenan etc. If still reacting after removing all mammal and it’s by products then you may need to remove dairy…milk, cheese, whey, lactose etc. (About half of people with alpha gal react to dairy).

In time you will learn what affects your body. Everyone’s level of sensitivity and everyone’s reaction are so different. If you find someone’s post confusing just ask the poster to explain.

Remember reactions most often are delayed by anywhere from 2 to 10 hours or more. So if you have a reaction look at what you ate earlier in the day. Also know that alpha-gal is a allergy that can produce a reaction anytime you ingest mammal meat or its byproducts but it may not cause you to react everytime you eat it. So you could eat a hamburger today and do absolutely fine but it the same thing in a few days and land in the hospital from a reaction.

Remember also that over time your sensitivity can increase or decrease so you need to learn to listen to your body to know how to adjust.

Got chronic discomfort?

Hi, I’m Wendy and in live in Spain but the “S” is silent. Or so the joke went…

I live hard, and I play hard. As a result, I often find myself with chronic discomfort. One of the best things I have found to help with that is CBD/Hemp. I found LivLabs Hemp products to be the most effective at balancing my system and being able to function better.

Every Tuesday, I love the fact I can get on a zoom call and can ask the doctors questions. They are very knowledgeable about the products and they have seen amazing results.

If exploring practical ideas, methods and concepts which can be used to promote positive health and wellbeing for you, your families and those in your professional life is something you are interested in… you can also join for the calls on Tuesday evenings at 8:30pm or Friday afternoons at 3pm.

I’m so in love with Liv Planet Hemp that I am saving up for a laser to add to my Massage ministry. I’ve really enjoyed learning about it and how it has helped others feel better so they can live with less discomfort. You can learn too Wednesdays at 12pm or 6pm, or Thursdays at 8pm through this link.

If you want to learn more about the cold laser itself you can go to http://www.Smartlaserlabs.com.

Check out this short video and tell me if there’s anything I can help you with!

RedBubble and My Art

Since I was a young girl, I’ve loved taking pictures, so much so I even had my own darkroom! As life went on I entered several photography contests, and won a few along the way too.

Recently, my passion for photography was reignited through the encouragement of a few friends. They nudged me to share my passion with others so they could also enjoy it. Well now it’s a reality and thanks to RedBubble! They make it easy to share the art I love but with minimal other work on my end.

I would love for you to head over and check out my shop called AGGardenGirl, just follow this link or search AGGardenGirl. Give me a ❤️ on the ones that you like best, or give my shop a share! I have plenty more to still go through and upload, but here are just a few currently in my shop.
