Infertility, Irritable Bowel, and Hives- A Case Study

Condition: Infertility, Irritable Bowel, and Hives

Symptoms: 30-year old female patient suffered from irregular bowel movements and hives upon eating. The hives induced severe discomfort and itching. The patient had a history of PMS and irregular periods. The hives increased in severity around the time of her menstrual cycle.

Findings: The patient presented with GI malabsorption, lack of stomach acid to breakdown food, kidney dysfunction, hypothyroid, pernicious anemia (B12 deficiency), and food allergies. The patient was also very low on all essential minerals in the hair analysis. The patient also had very low production of progesterone and DHEA which was contributing to the PMS Symptoms. The patient also had adrenal fatigue from overproduction of norepinephrine which suppresses sex hormone production resulting in infertility.

Treatment: The patient was recommended an organic, whole food diet. The patient was also taken through 4 phases of healing which included detoxification, GI clean-up, GI replenishment, plus hormone and adrenal balancing.

Conclusion: Midway through the 4th phase of healing, the patient became pregnant with her 1st child. The patient was vibrant, happy, hive free, and feeling healthier than ever.
