Hello, I am 21 years old, I work in a daycare and I smoke... now that that is all out in the open, forget the silly responses about the ills of smoking and how childcare centres lower your immunity... I don't need fluff answers, the doctors give me enough of those. It seems that within the past year I get sick everytime I turn around... either I have a cold, or vomiting, or diarrhea... I eat healthy, I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and I generally get 8-9 hours of sleep each night, so what could be making me sick and so run-down all the time? Physically being sick is taking its toll on my mind as well making me feel lethargic and almost always in a state of doom and gloom, I've gotten blood tests done and everything else but keep getting told I'm "fine" and its likely allergies making me feel sick and run-down (which I doubt, I take reactine daily and don't feel nearly as much bothered by allergies). I want to know if anyone else is experiencing this same thing and what they're doing about it, or what any of you think this may be... all I can seem to find is that it could be Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so I am interested in finding what else it could be... I need to find a way to feel better before I get fired for calling in sick so much -_-

Thanks for any help!

  • Hi, there. I am sorry to know that you feel so bad. I would suggest you to go to the foolowing web sites and look at the PH acidic/alkaline balance of your body: http://mysite.verizon.net/felipe2/id12.html andhttp://acidalkalinediet.com/recipes/ andhttp://www.naturalhealthyellowpages.com/miracle_doctors/index.htmlThere are others, but I don't remember right now.Like many people, I didn't know about this PH thing untill I got many wrong diagnosis and had to research for myself and I found out I was very acidic (a good environment for sickness) and had to change my diet to get more alkalinezed. For my surprise I stared feeling much better. Just a quick recipe to give you more ENERGY (sorry I wrote "alergy" before, but I am correcting it now): get a bottle of drinking or distiled water and add a little bit of baking soda or lemon juice (no sugar) this recipe will help alkalineze your body fast, but you still need t change your diet to have a complete cure.Hope you feel better! May God bless you!

Delayed onset allergies can seem like a never-ending problem of low energy, low immunity, and low health. You may not have immediate allergy symptoms or maybe the meds you are taking clears them up. Anti-allergy meds are in and of themselves partially responsible for weakening the immune system (by blocking immune activity). Have you had any allergy testing done? You should probably avoid any foods known to cause you trouble rather than attempting to cover the major symptoms with drugs.

  • By "eat healthy" I follow a vegeterian diet making sure to get my vitamins, protein and calcium. For breakfast I may eat a bowl of multi-grain organic cereal (with rice milk - I am allergic to milk), or soy yogurt and an apple or orange, or an egg and a piece of toast... for lunch I generally eat something quick, probably my most unhealthy meal of the day, but still generally soup or oatmeal or salad or something along those lines... and for dinner generally something containing protein (usually something made from tofu), cooked vegetables and maybe two or three times a week some potatoe (either boiled or baked - no sour cream)... if I snack in the evening it is usually dried fruit or dried seaweed or crackers... and all I usually drink is water, tea, pure diluted fruit juices (homemade) and aloe vera juice... although I used to drink a lot of pepsi and I'm not sure how long that may have a negative effect on the body -_- and I'm also not saying I totally avoid junky food like chips or fries or whatnot, I just rarely eat it. Also, I have been tested for allergies and my allergist agrees I now have my allergies under control, although you are correct, they are late onset... however I am quite in tune with my body and I avoid my allergens. Although I found it very interesting reading what you had to say about the allergy medications themselves lowering your immune system, as I am a bit of an anti-drug. Anyhow, thank you for your input! I will consult with my doctor about the allergy medication itself and see if it may be the cause of some of this.Regards,

  • Wash your hands after every contact with a kid if you can. Or carry your own hand-sanitizer in your pocket. Hope this helps.
