Supplements for Chronic Hives

Tuesday, 11 August 2009 11:07 AM

Question: What supplements would you advise for chronic urticaria (hives)?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

You should first look for the source of the problem. One cause physicians often overlook or intolerances. Eliminating the offending foods may cure the problem. Sometimes undetected infections can be the cause. Symptoms can be reduced by dampening the histamine response and reducing the release of edema-causing peptides.

Helpful supplements that work best when used in combination, include buffered vitamin C, hesperidin, quercetin, and magnesium. Quercetin is best absorbed when mixed with extra-virgin olive oil, but it can also be mixed with food.
