Does Quercetin work for cold hives?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey everyone, I've been posting on here a lot and I apologize for that but I am desperate looking for answers.

I have cold hives, and I am not sure why. Some possible causes are Celiac disease or Gluten intolerance, Leaky gut, Thyroid Conditions, like Hypothyroidism.

I have not been tested for any of these but I am almost 100% positive that I don't have any kind of Gluten Intolerance. However, after I eat anything whether it be a piece of toast or steak dinner I bloat. So it could be a stomach issue. Thyroid conditions I am not to sure, because I have not been tested, but according to google some symptoms are cold sensitivity and sensitive skin. Which I have both of.

Anyway, I have also found that Quercetin works as like a natural antihistamine and the recommended dosage is 400mg twice a day. Antihistamines like Allegra (Allegra is the only one I've tried) don't work for me with keeping the hives away so would Quercetin?

Also, could I get the reccomened dosage without taking the supplements. For instance, through black plums and blueberries and whatever?

Thank you in advance

    Doing a 1 -2 week veggie juice fast and then going 100% gluten free takes mine away.

    I have cold hives but they would only come out when I got exposed to cold and had gluten in my system. For example I have been 100% gluten free (food, shampoos and all) and have been cold urticaria free now and then I ate at a restaurant and they put gluten in my food and it got cross contaminated and the next day the cold urticaria came back. I experienced stomach pains right after eating. I think that I have been gluten intolerant before and I didn't know what the symptoms were until cutting it our completely and noticing the differences. The juice fast helped me clean what I could out of my system too. I think doing a 1 week juice fast and then cutting out gluten for 2-3 weeks will give you a good idea if it will help you. I don't take any medications because that is just adding more toxins in my body with an already compromised system.

    I hope it helps you like it did for me.

      P.S. I would go with organic produce when juicing as much as possible to help get the best nutrients and most importantly to avoid more chemicals from pesticides.

      Yep, I have committed to gluten free still. It take a little getting used to. But way worth not getting those hives. I don't eat too many grains and I try to get lettuce wrap instead of grains / bread.
