Re: Chalk Allergy

Water alone won't rinse off Liquid Chalk. It takes soap and water.

Re: Chalk Allergy

Chris, what about MSM?

Quote:
Several authors have noted that MSM works as a histamine inhibitor at least as well as the traditional antihistamines, without the negative side effects

Re: Chalk Allergy

I haven't heard of that either. I could learn from Google as well as you could.

The first thing I got from Google is this: http://www.nwhealthsolutions.com/allergy.htm (wfs). It says MSM is not a histamine inhibitor, as it allows histamine to be produced normally. It acts by blocking histamine receptors, so the effects of histamine are limited even though it is normally produced.

I'm not sure why we're getting opposite information on the questions you ask. Maybe my Google is broken.

Re: Chalk Allergy

I might know why! You are talking about blocking histamin completely (right?) and I talk about "getting rid of excess histamine", or curing symptoms. Id rather start with latter than with some drugs that also have side effects.

Might just be the language barrier as english is not my mother language and often I get lost in more "science" conversations, sorry.

I have an allergy and decided to give MSM a go, for sure I will report back. Thou my allergy is very mild one and I can go without any drugs, still its uncomfortable and I want it under control.

Re: Chalk Allergy

FYI, Chris, Ive found a paper on niacin and allergies, and a bunch of other diseases, by dr. Hoffer: "Allergies and Schizoophrenia: Immune System Starvation?"

And quite a lot of other info here: http://doctoryourself.com/hoffer_niacin.html wfs

What do you think?

Re: Chalk Allergy

What do you think?
I am not sure why a non scholar paper citing vitamin therapy as cure for a mental health disorder have anything to with an substance allergy.
Especially from the author that lost his license to practice , created his own society to give an air of validity to his own research. He was deem a quack by his peers later on.
Also dare, did you know that hoffer was one of several md that where using LSD to treat alcoholics ? Some years later it was hinted that research money came from the cia for brainwashing research.



OP. Your client reaction of facial swelling is a serious response on the allergy scale. She most likely becoming increasingly more sensitive to the trigger agent. REPEATED exposure results in MORE LIFE threatening experiences with less and less trigger agent amounts Google anaphylaxis.
Encourage /allow / provide her with gloves, Lifting straps Bag of cornstarch to help her grip and I would even go as far as getting baby wipes for her wipe off the bar before she lifts.

Re: Chalk Allergy

I started using an eco ball and it works great, not chalk, and doesn't leave residue. A little more pricey than chalk but cheaper than liquid chalk for sure.
