Only a few days ago the author of this article and owner of this site Henry Sapiecha has had a conversation and one on one with two adults in a partnership and have 3 beautiful children who are all seriously allergic to the medicinal wonder plant aloe-vera.

The mother also has the same allergy to aloe-vera.The father is immune to all of this.

So it is assumed that the mother has passed on this allergy to her children.

One also knows that persons can be allergic to any of a number of plants, foods or whatever. However an allergy to aloe vera is unheard of. So here we are assessing why and how and whatever.

These people need your help to see how they can overcome this predicament..

If you are able to assist with some input as to what you know would correct their problem or assist in their plight, please forward your suggestion to our email or direct to thier email

The above photographs are of the family who are in this predicament

One of the children also has an allergy to mango juice and broccoli.

Semen ‘killer flu’

found to be an allergy

Thomas Maugh
January 20, 2011

LOS ANGELES: Some males seem to be allergic to their own semen, developing a mysterious flu-like illness after they have ejaculated, Dutch researchers say.

The condition, known as post-orgasmic illness syndrome or POIS, has been documented since 2002. Symptoms include feverishness, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes, which can last for up to a week.

Some doctors had suggested the disorder was psychosomatic, but Marcel Waldinger, a professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University, and colleagues demonstrated in two papers in The Journal of Sexual Medicine that the syndrome was allergic in nature and that it might be possible to desensitise men to the problem.

Dr Waldinger and his colleagues studied 45 men with POIS. Thirty-three agreed to undergo a standard skin allergy test using a diluted form of their own semen; 29 of the 33, or 88 per cent, showed a positive allergic reaction, indicating an autoimmune response.

It is not clear, however, why they exhibited a response to the semen only when it was released from the testicles.

”They didn’t feel ill when they masturbated without ejaculating,” Dr Waldinger said. ”But as soon as the semen came from the testes … they became ill, sometimes within a few minutes.”

In a second study in the journal, Dr Waldinger used what is known as hyposensitisation therapy on two of the men, injecting them with steadily stronger solutions of their semen. The team found that after one and three years, the men showed significantly less POIS symptoms.

Irregular Work Schedule Bad for Regularity

Study:  IBS More Common Among People with Rotating Shifts

The unpredictability of your job may affect your risk for irritable bowel syndrome.

It’s said that the only constant thing people can expect in life is change, a frustrating fact of life for we are creatures of habit.

While change is almost always uncomfortable, change, for the most part, is a good thing.  It enables us to grow.  It enables us to adapt to circumstances both within and beyond our control.

Knowing that change is a good thing doesn’t make it any easier to deal with, though.  In fact, even small changes, like never having a consistent work schedule, can really throw off the body’s body clock.

All of us have an internal body clock.  We all develop patterns of behavior that our body remembers, where we wake around the same time every morning, go to bed around the same time every night, and eat around the same time for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Where we also develop patterns is in our bowel habits.

If you’re anything like me, you tend to use the facilities around the same time every day (yes, I know that’s too much information, but there’s a point to my mentioning this).   Here, a lack of change is a good thing because it indicates that you’re getting a good amount of fiber in your diet and that you’re staying “regular.”

But according to researchers, a work schedule that’s constantly in flux spells bad news for your bowels by putting you at risk for irritable bowel syndrome.

Researchers from the University of Michigan discovered this after evaluating 400 people whose profession epitomizes unpredictability:  nurses.

About half of the participating nurses had the fortune of working pretty consistent schedules, but 75 of them had very irregular schedules.

After taking into account potential contributing factors for IBS diagnosis (e.g. gender, stress levels, age, etc.), they found that the nurses whose schedules were constantly in flux were far more likely to have IBS.

They found that about 50 percent of the nurses who had rotating shifts reported symptoms indicative of IBS, which is a stark contrast to the 40 percent of nurses with IBS on the graveyard shift and the 31 percent that work dayside.

This is an interesting finding because even though the rate is highest among those working the unpredictable shift, it’s a high rate of IBS among all three groupings, especially when you compare their rate of IBS to the country at large (about 20 percent of the population has IBS, or 1 in 5).

Then again it’s not too surprising the rate of IBS was high among all the groupings when you factor into the equation that most of the participants were young women (IBS is more common among women, especially those who are in their 20s and 30s).

The study was published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.

If these nurses’ situation is in anyway similar to yours, ask your boss if you can work a more regular schedule.  It may be embarrassing for you to explain why you want a regular schedule, but keep in mind that IBS is an extremely common condition that LOTS of people have.  Plus, if your work schedule is causing your IBS, a steadier work schedule will enable you to work more effectively and efficiently—a win-win for your employer!  A 1995 Mayo Clinic study found that IBS costs the economy $20 billion every year in lost work productivity.

If your work schedule isn’t the cause of your IBS, it may be your diet.  There’s no such thing as a food that fixes or causes IBS, as the cause of IBS flare-ups tend to vary from person to person.  It may be because your diet’s too low in fiber or you’ve started to eat a food that you haven’t eaten in a while.   Take inventory of your diet.

Then again, your IBS may be a result of your emotional state.  Have you been feeling a lot of stress at work lately?  How’s life been at home with your spouse or your kids?  Stress plays a significant role in IBS onset, so do everything you can to de-stress your life (e.g. start an exercise routine, do yoga, or get a massage).

A gastroenterologist will be able to identify if you have IBS, but there are some all-natural supplements you should consider if you’d rather not deal with the doc.

Allergy causes revealed


Do you have an allergy? Do these allergies  affect your breathing? There are actually several different types of allergies that can affect how you breathe. They can hit adults and children alike and they can be very frustrating and in some rare cases, even life threatening. What do you know about allergies that affect breathing and how you can prevent and maintain these allergies?

There are different types of allergies that can affect your breathing or cause allergy-induced asthma, also making it difficult to breathe. This can seriously impact your life so that you can not take part in normal daily activities. Some people become severely worse when they go outdoors so this can prevent you from taking part in outdoor activities, playing sports or even just going for a walk.

Some people are seriously allergic to indoor allergens, pet dander, mold and other indoor causes that can make it very difficult for their daily lives. This will change the way you live your life and if it goes untreated, it can be very harmful. You may not be able to have a family pet, clean certain areas of your home by yourself and you may have to take special precautions such as removing carpeting from the home, using an air purifier and more just to be able to relax in your own home. Going to visit in other people’s homes can be a real problem for you as well.

Allergy symptoms


How can you know if you have allergies that affect breathing? Often this condition is mistaken for the common cold or flu but it may last for many weeks or months. Most people have what is referred to as “seasonal allergies” meaning that they will experience symptoms during certain seasons of the year and other times they will be symptom free. Some symptoms of allergies that affect breathing are sneezing (often the sneezes come in sets of threes), watery eyes, itchy eyes, trouble sleeping due to stuffy nose or breathing problems and puffy or itchy skin on the face and other parts of the body.

There are many allergens in the air in our homes and offices and also outdoors that can affect our breathing. Different people have different types of allergies with different triggers but common ones include pet dander, mold, dirt and dust, food allergies, pollen and allergic reaction to certain medications. If you suffer from allergies that affect breathing, talk with your doctor about your triggers, symptoms and how you can manage your allergies and your breathing to remain healthy.


A clean surrounding is a great start in  reducing the symptoms
