  • Uhm, I don't even know how I'm gonna make this video

  • It's very personal

  • but its also like something that I really wanna talk about

  • Because I feel like there is a lot of people

  • they're gonna wanna come to japan and they have allergies or chronic diseases

  • And they don't know how to deal with those things

  • And I think that I wanna put that health aspect on my channel

  • because it's important. I have a deathly peanut allergy

  • I have psoriasis

  • I have scoliosis

  • I have asthma which is a chronic longe disease

  • I have allergies to pollen uhm and

  • dust mites and all sorts of things

  • I have chronic acid reflux gerd

  • It's like something that I had to deal with

  • like all my life. I'm a mess and

  • It keeps me from doing things with other people

  • It keeps me from.. you know

  • taking opportinities and

  • I have anxiety

  • I have like mild depression

  • like those things, anxiety and depression like are things that I've been able to

  • work with in my life and things that I've been able to help

  • But I have a lot of problems and I have a lot of digestive problems

  • aswell I've grew up with digestive issues and

  • all sorts of things and as you get older things get worse and

  • you have to treat them

  • I grew up lactose intolerant but I grew out of it when I was 7

  • uhm.. I was allergic to shellfish growing up so

  • I grew out of it aswell and I'm not allergic to that anymore

  • as a recent which is something that I found out uhm..

  • a couple weeks ago is that I'm intolerant

  • which is a class 2 allergy to

  • soy beans and egg

  • which is something that I eat a lot of

  • In Japan so I was pretty shocked

  • upset that I was allergic to

  • those things

  • allergic to dogs and cats but I knew that already

  • but getting those test results back

  • and seing that was such a hard thing to stomach

  • because in Japan it's so hard to avoid those things

  • and

  • you think like can I live here?

  • can I.. am I gonna survive?

  • but it's something that I kinda have to omit from my diet

  • as often as possible

  • Going back to december I ended up taking a ton of anticiotics

  • I had nemonia, I was very sick and

  • I never got sick before

  • any of this before I started teaching children

  • which I do right now. I never got sick

  • until this moment like it was very rare for me to get sick

  • teaching children I feek like at this point in my life

  • my body is just not equipped to be doing it as much as I love it

  • like I love the job I think

  • the job that I have is very good and it gives me the time to do my youtube chanel

  • and like other things on the side

  • which I love uhm.. so it's

  • like the ideal job for what I do in my life

  • going back to december

  • I had nemonia and I took two rounds of really strong antibiotics

  • I got better

  • uhm.. a month later went back to work got sick

  • because you know parents bring their kids to work sick sometimes and

  • you know they dont wanna miss a day

  • so that can be

  • rough when you're a teacher here in japan so

  • I got sick again and I ended up going to get more antibiotics

  • because I couldn't get better like my body was not healing

  • my imunesystem was already surpressed

  • from my asthma and my allergies and

  • all the things that are happening in my system so

  • after those two months I started to feel a lot of swelling in my throat

  • and I didn't know why

  • I got a fever, I had my ears started to pop

  • I had extreme allergies like my nose would be running

  • and I would feel like I had a cold but it wasn't a cold

  • Uhm and then it would shut off like it was a faucet

  • it would just shut off, immediatley everything would go away

  • And I was like.. what just happened?

  • Like it was almost like the storm like went through my body

  • and then came out.

  • Anyway I started to get a sinus infection again and it looked like it was a sinus

  • like an actual sinus infection

  • I was about to take a plane uhm and

  • I remember Gretchen came my friends

  • just to say goodbye to me and I was miserable

  • I was having asthma problems, horrible asthma problems

  • I did not know what it was

  • I thought maybe it was anxiety or something else.

  • I had a some virus or....

  • I have no clue what was happening to my imunesystem

  • It just went into overdrive

  • and decided to attack me

  • I landed in LA uh.. I still had the problems

  • and I felt bad because I was.. my voice was gone

  • and I looked like I was sick when I first met my boyfriend

  • and I was taking allergy medicine

  • and I didn't understand why

  • and then one day it just went away again

  • like faucet - turn off everything was gone

  • and I was like what the heck?

  • what is happening to me?

  • everything was gone I was like okay..? well I guess I'm better now

  • A couple days later I started to develop some pain in the back of my tongue

  • And I was like looking and nothing was there

  • just felt like I burned the back of my tongue

  • and then a couple days later I started to develop these red bumps

  • in the back of my tongue

  • and I was like what the heck? It looked like it was just swollen taste buds

  • It still hurt by then but I didn't pay attention I thought I would go away

  • Uh well.. it didn't and eventually started to turn white

  • And I was like oh my God

  • what is happening

  • so my whole tongue turned completly white

  • So at first I was like maybe I'm just getting sick

  • so I went to urgent care during my vacation

  • and the doctor was an idiot like I

  • urgent care you know urgent care it's not really the best place to go

  • but I didn't have a lot of money

  • and it was the cheapest option so

  • Uh.. and I didn't have insurance either because I live here

  • when I went there I saw the doctor, he didn't seem to care

  • he messed up my Name like

  • when he wrote the perscription he switched my name with somebody elses

  • it was really weird

  • And then he was like, he didn't even really check me

  • He was like oh looks kinda like strep throat or whatever I dont really know

  • so I'm just gonna give you some antibiotics

  • Because you know when you go to a doctor

  • antibiotics like they give it to you because they think it's gonna cure you

  • Anyway so he gave me antibiotics

  • and uhm.. didn't work

  • At first I thought like okay initially I'm gonna say like TMI

  • I thought it was an STD

  • So I thought maybe STD oral thrush

  • uh, was the possibility

  • because of all the antibiotics that I took and like my imunesystem is crap

  • oral thrush was the most likley one

  • and still kind of as on the table as if right now

  • yeah.. nothing went away with antibiotics

  • I had a fever like a low grad fever

  • It wasn't anything like bad but I still had one

  • and I was confused like what the heck

  • is going on with me?

  • Because this didn't start happening until

  • you know after I took the last bowl of antibiotics

  • and I got sick. People think going to the doctor can just cure you

  • But honestly it can't

  • It's all about your diet everything, all of your diseases

  • anything you have whether it's arthritis or

  • autoimmune disease like eczema all of that stuff

  • starts in the gut in the stomach

  • all of that comes from the stomach and uhm..

  • even asthma and acid reflex

  • all of this starts from the stomach

  • and if you don't eat the right foods

  • so if you always eat you know processed things, sweet things

  • lots of sugary things which is something that I've been eating a lot

  • bread and pastas which I also eat a lot of

  • ehm.. looking at my diet

  • keeping a food diary for a while and I eat a lot of that stuff

  • and its processed

  • and it's sugary and I have intolerances and allergies

  • and these things can .... on your gut

  • no matter if you have allergies or not

  • like if you're eating bad if you're not eating correctly

  • and you're not using simple ingredients and home made cooking

  • then you're gonna have problems

  • in the future

  • I don't snack a lot like I don't eat chips or anything like that because

  • it irritates my acid reflux

  • so I never touch those things but I eat a lot of sweets

  • and I eat a lot of pizza and cheese

  • and tomatoes that can really agrovate your stomach lining

  • and your

  • just digestive system in general

  • so honestly all of these things that I'm propably having currently

  • is something that I can cure with food and the right kind of diet

  • so I went to

  • a doctor when I came back

  • I immediatley called the ENT as soon as I landed in japan again

  • and I set up an appointment for the next day

  • so I went to my ENT

  • and he looked at my throat and my tongue

  • and he's like "Oh.. looks not that bad"

  • like "it doesn't look like oral thrush to me"

  • I was like "Really? It does to me"

  • It really did cuz I showed it to my aunt

  • she's a nurse and she's like "that's oral thrush"

  • and I was like "yeah right? It looks like oral thrush"

  • Like I, it looks like I'm having a yeast infection in my gut or my body

  • Something's happening and overgrowth of bacteria

  • So the doctor didn't see anything weird

  • Uhm.. he did a swap test

  • he did a strep throat test which was weird because I already did that

  • I had antibiotics for a strep throat and my throat wasn't even hurting

  • so like..

  • I didn't even understand that

  • But he checked and nothing seemed abnormal

  • they came back negative, no yeast, no bacteria

  • I wanted a second opinion so I went to a super expensive doctor

  • and it was an american doctor living in Japan

  • and uh..

  • he doesn't take insurance so it was extremly expensive

  • but I wanted answers and I went to this guy before after I was misdiagnosed

  • when I first had nemonia, which was like

  • 4 years ago I had it before

  • and I was consitently misdiagnosed

  • he listens

  • this guy is also a psychologist or a psychiatrist aswell

  • so I feel like I can really talk to him

  • about my fears and my issues

  • And so he was like "you know what?"

  • "I'm gonna give you some antifungal medicine to see if something clears up"

  • "and we'll swab your throat"

  • "and or your tongue again to see if there's any yeast."

  • So he did it, came out negative uhm..

  • he gave me antifungal stuff

  • Didn't go away

  • I was taking it for like 3 days at that point

  • and nothing was changing. Also I went to primary care doctor

  • I found a new one and

  • they are amazing, I love them

  • It's an international doctor I will

  • link every doctor I've seen down below who's been good for me

  • And speaks English

  • But this doctor tested me for

  • CBC blood test

  • I think its complete blood count test

  • And she tested me for all STDs like every single one

  • oral and you know the urin test and stuff

  • Everything was negative, blood test was normal

  • So I was like "Okay what the heck is happening?"

  • I still have these bumps in the back of my tongue

  • The pain went away

  • My tongue was still white. And then I started to have pain in my throat

  • like tightness and stiffenss

  • increased acid reflux

  • trouble swallowing.. things like that

  • it was confusing I would go to work and I would be talking

  • and then all of a suddden my throat would start to hurt
