It started with ear infections, which of course were treated with antibiotics. It eventually evolved into horrible seasonal allergies and headaches. As I got older they only got worse. Some days my allergies would be so bad that I would feel like I had the flu. I was treated with everything conventional medicine had to offer; allergy shots, daily meds, but without much improvement. As a teenager I got to add acne to the list of (oh-so-common) childhood complaints.
