View Full Version : Alergic to kittens.........help!
03-26-2007, 07:19 AM
Good morning...I seem to be the 'let's ask Elaine' medium for health issues these days which I guess is a compliment yet I do learn to all of you for this help.
Okay, I have a friend who just got two kittens..she loves them and now, all she does is sneeze and drip (nose)....is there anything she can do??? Any food that would relieve the dander or whatever it is on the kittens....
Thank you for any suggestions that I can pass on to her.

She needs to just go raw...period. My husband used to be "allergic" to cats (amongst a few other things such as strawberries and bananas) and would wheeze and break out in hives in their presence or if the hair or dander got near/on him. Once he began cleaning up his diet - which we DID keep him away from cats until that time) he was later able to be around them again (AND eat those fruits I named before) with no problem!
But she's toxic and something already in her body is causing a reaction to her when around cats...at least that's MY (non-medical professional) theory.

Thank you Rawkinlocs....you know, you are my hero....I love reading your honest and heartfelt posts and feel honored when you answer one of my ongoing questions...thanks!!!!
It does feel good that people turn to me for answers to their health woes...it must mean that they like my life style/way of eating....I read everything I can and rely on this board for the REAL truth...you all have tried the recipes, have real honest opinions about supplements, etc...
Hey Rawkinlocs...I'm still taking my maca and think of your testimonial every morning and I know though I still don't call the taste one of my favorites...I know it's changing my body (just like ya said)...hahahha!!!!!!!!!

I have read that for many people, the allergy stems not from the dander, as once believed, but from the saliva of the cats.
There are sprays you can use to reduce the cat residue around the house.... frequent vaccuming helps. Air filters will help with dander and other allergens that may be compounding the issue. Nowadays there is even a freaky pill that you can give your cat to make it non-allegenic...but who knows WHAT that does to the cat!
tell her to wash her hands afetr ahndling the cats or their toys/bedding/etc.
homeopathic remedies are some fo the best solutions for allergies.
PS- A pal of mine has terrible allergies. He has found that removing dairy and hite sugar has helped overall. He got a cat and suffered for a little while, but couldn't give her up b/c she was sooooo cute. He eventually just got over his allergy to her. Other cats still bother him...just not his own!

I agree with Rawkinlocs, have your friend go raw. I've heard of several people who have "lost" their allergies to dogs and cats (as well as seasonal allergies) after going raw.
All the best,

Thank you...I'll pass on all the info...I appreciate your responses...Elaine
I used to be allergic to cats that I actually chose the girls that dated based on whether or not they had a cat. I went high raw and now can pet them, play with them, sit down on carpet at a cat-owner's house, etc. To test this, I went to my in-laws and picked up their cat, put my nose in its fur and breathed in very deeply! (And I didn't sneeze, nor did my nose run!)
So just tell them to go raw and see what happens.
