Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 06, 2006


Last night was very weird. I felt no difference by not taking my regular vitamins but my allergies were very strong. I had a constant runny nose and sneezing. They haven’t been this strong since I stopped eating the microwaved food and I didn’t have any today or yesterday.

Is there a possible link to me not taking the B vitamins?

Adrenal  Stress and Allergies

Allergic reactions typically have an adrenal component. Most allergies involve
the release of histamine and other pro-inflammatory substances (substances that
produce inflammation).

Cortisol, one of the primary hormones produced by the adrenal glands, is a
strong anti-inflammatory (a substance that reduces inflammation).
In fact, the amount of cortisol circulating in the blood is the key factor in
controlling the level of inflammatory reactions in the body.

For this reason proper adrenal function plays an important role in mediating the
histamine release and inflammatory reactions that produce the symptoms
experienced with allergies.

With Adrenal Fatigue there is more of a tendency to experience allergies.
The more histamine that is released, the more cortisol it takes to control the
inflammatory response and the harder the adrenals have to work to produce more
cortisol.

The harder the adrenals have to work, the more fatigued they become and the less
cortisol they produce, allowing histamine to inflame the tissues more. This
vicious circle can lead to progressively deeper Adrenal Fatigue as well as to
larger allergic reactions.

I’ll take the B vitamins today and see if I have any allergy symptoms.

Here’s my new dosage:

2 – B complex capsules
2 – 250 mg Magnesium Oxide
2 – 150 mg Magnesium Citrate with 250 mg Calcium
3 – 500 mg Vitamin C
