Poison Oak, Cats, Trees?


What are you allergic to?  As most of you know, I lost my voice.  The very few of you that I did talk to, over about 4 months, heard me sounding like a big old toad or a quiet little frog. But, now my voice is back better than ever!

After seeing several specialists, taking prescriptions with miserable side effects, and no answers, I finally went to an allergist.  I never thought of myself having allergies but with age (oh, please!) stuff like this apparently happens.

I was sleeping about an hour and a half at a time, so hard to breathe, couldn’t answer the phone and my symptoms seemed to be worse on the mountain (wait a minute!  That’s where we live!).  I finally googled ‘allergist’.

Two hours later I was at her office in Rancho Bernardo.  The allergy testing was very simple.  She has an amazing collection of little glass viles like perfume samples come in.  These viles represent all the foods and environmental ‘stuff’ that people are allergic to.  All you do is hold one in your hand while she tests your body strength.

Found out I was very allergic to horses (Buddy and Dollar!), cats (Mousetrap!), cedar and oak trees (that would be the Mountain!, oranges (fresh squeezed, organic is a fav!)  and a few other things.  After her wonderful, pain free, totally non invasive treatments, she CLEARED me of all my allergies.  The very first treatment, I slept through the night for the first time in months.  It took about 8 weeks to complete all the ‘clearings’ but by the end, my voice was back (much to Don’s dismay!).

I do feel like shouting from the mountain top: “Go see Dr. Gaila!”  I encourage you to share this with your family and friends.  No one needs to suffer with any allergies – find out what’s bugging you, get cleared, and enjoy life to it’s fullest!

The next time you’re up, come on over and let’s go love on the cats and feed some carrots to those horses.  And, I’ll talk your ear off – sorry – just catching up!
