“Back in 2013, my hands, arms, and lips used to swell up. I was completely covered with hives. It shortly became a daily occurrence, I would be itching constantly and would find it embarrassing in public. On seeing a dermatologist/skin consultant at St Helier Hospital I was told I was allergic to dust mites. I was advised to take antihistamines but I hated the idea of remaining on medication for the rest of my life. That’s when I tried searching for alternative natural solutions. I went to see Arfa Ahmad. Arfa gave me wonderful nutritional advice and then gave me a homeopathic medicine. I followed her instructions for three months and noticed that my hives were lessening. As of now, I haven’t had a single episode of urticaria and angioedema for over two years now.”
