’s Weekly Roundup: January 7th, 2018

Weekly Roundup / Sunday, January 7th, 2018 / 2 comments

Hi again! Welcome to my new “Weekly Roundup” for 2018. Here’s what you may have missed this last week:

MCAD, ENFs & EMFs: Is Modern Technology Triggering Our Mast Cells?

I explored the topic of modern technology and its effects on our immune system. I found there are some things we can do to help minimize the risk, although it’s not easy (unless we become Amish, and even then…).

Mast Cell Disease Awareness: Please Help Me Spread The Word!

I started a new personal daily jourmal/blog called Life In The Mast Lane (warning, may contain #$%! harsh language), and finally (!) joined in on social media and invited everyone to help me share more #mastcelldiseaseawareness. The world needs more #mastcelldiseaseawareness!!

Mast Cell Activation & Lyme Disease: Exploring The Connection

I looked into the connection between Lyme disease & mast cell activation and found that while MCAD doesn’t cause Lyme, MC activation can be triggered by the bacteria that does. Very interesting!

Mast Cell Disease & Fibromyalgia (FM): Can Mast Cell Degranulation Cause FM Symptoms?

I also researched Fibromyalgia and MCAD and learned that there is a lot of research showing a definite connection between these two debilitating diseases.

The Eleven Principles of (Successfully) Treating MCAS: Principle #11

I finished up my series on the 11 PrinciPLES of successfully treating MCAS. And then went back and fixed my spelling error on every single page/link. That was fun! I also introduced Wendy Busse, a registered dietician who will be featured in a couple of articles in my upcoming ‘MCAD & Food’ series right here on soon.

Mast Cell Disease & Testing: How Do I Get an MCAS Diagnosis?

Finally, I posted an article detailing how to go about getting tested and diagnosed with MCAS. It’s not simple, as I point out and mastocytosis needs to be ruled out first! I shared my own diagnostic journey.

So what’s next?

This week I’ll be starting my “MCAD & Food” series, looking into ways to handle stress and anxiety and researching the connection between mast cell disease and arthritis. I’ll also be looking at whether or not the flu shot is safe for those of us with MCAD. Many of us want to know!
