Donate today and make history with us as we work to attain our official 501c3 status as well as create the first ever foundation for the idiopathic angioedema, bradykinin mediated angioedema!

In the meantime, read on to learn about the three distinct classifications around #angioedema and why we do what we do to bring right attention to #the80percent!

Did you know…

The 80 Percent_Did You Know...

We appreciate you beyond measure and, knowing that each and everyone one of you are golden links to the chain of our past, current and future good and successes, we ask that you continue to spread the word about the amazing work we are doing here at Life Without A Fork!!! Wishes to all for the healthiest in mind, body, spirit, life, prosperity and love!”

First known case of angioedema associated with Crohn’s disease… “A 46-year-old female patient with terminal ileum Crohn’s disease and ankylosing spondylitis presented with recurrent angioedema and urticaria. Investigations ruled out hereditary angioedema, and environmental or food allergen triggers.”


Angioedema Associated with Crohn’s Disease: Response to Biologics.

“Lab tests specific to mast cell activation for suspected MCAS patients should include serum tryptase, serum chromogranin A, plasma histamine, chilled plasma PGD2, stat chilled plasma heparin, chilled urine for PGD2, PGF2a and n-methylhistamine. .”


Symptom Management & Mast Cell Degranulation Triggers

“The objective of the Hereditary Angioedema Burden of Illness Study in Europe was to assess the real-world experience of hereditary angioedema (HAE) from the patient perspective.”


Burden of Illness in Hereditary Angioedema: A Conceptual Model

“If you have allergies, many parts of this story will probably be familiar to you. I’m writing it down just to get it out there, and in case it’s helpful for people to read what someone else has been through.  It’s an incredibly long story, so I wouldn’t bother reading if you are in a rush.”


Corn Allergy Sensitivities.

“The study of the effects of the environment upon the individual is now feasible due to new technology developed in the construction of environmental units.1,2,3. Our observations reveal that individual or multiple organs may be involved. The brain is the target organ in only a subset of chemically sensitive patients, and its involvement should not be confused with psychosomatic disease.”


Chemical Sensitivities.

“People are suffering severe allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis) to meat products as tick bites cause the human body to mount an immune response against the mammalian carbohydrate “alpha-gal”. This unusual condition has so far been identified in Australia and in the United States, however, the numbers of those affected is substantial and appears to be increasing.”

“The objective of the Hereditary Angioedema Burden of Illness Study in Europe was to assess the real-world experience of hereditary angioedema (HAE) from the patient perspective.”

Candida organisms commonly colonize the human gastrointestinal tract as a component of the resident microbiota. Their presence is generally benign. Recent studies, however, show that high level Candidacolonization is associated with several diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

Nigella sativa has been used as traditional medicine for centuries. The crude oil and thymoquinone (TQ) extracted from its seeds and oil are effective against many diseases like cancer, cardiovascular complications, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease etc. It is effective against cancer in blood system, lung, kidney, liver, prostate, breast, cervix, skin with much safety.

“A Russian scientist claims to have found the fountain of youth by injecting himself with 3.5 million year old bacteria found in the Siberian permafrost. According to Anatoli Brouchkov, he no longer gets sick and is now stronger than ever.”
