Abstract

Urticaria is the inflammation of the skin due to a reaction to allergens, which presents itself as swollen pale red bumps or plaques. Urticaria is a very common type of allergic reaction, which can be triggered by food, dust, medicine, irritants, etc. Though the causes may seem infinite, the trigger is specific to an individual. The scientific research method of observation was followed to collect qualitative and quantitative data. The experiment or test element was a single patient with Urticaria. The patient was monitored and data were collected for a year and a half. The case experiment considered two categories, namely: 1. reaction to meat and dairy products were identified and appropriate measures were designed to eliminate all oral intake of said factors and replace it with neutral restorative foods, i.e. a vegan diet. 2. Understanding the mental impact of the patient with regular bodily functions, stress and anxiety stimulants such as peer pressure, were identified and other alternative life-style adaptations were designed and introduced to eliminate or minimize urticaria causes. The method of dietary doses and anxiety stabilization were administered regularly to find a cure for one and a half years. Findings show a major factor that alleviated the effects of diet and anxiety and increased dependence on God by spending more time on learning from the Holy Bible. Gradual implementation of the remedies gradually decreased the outbreaks. The patient stopped medication (Antihistamine) and is on a better lifestyle. One could further study on moderate life-style and its significance to avoid extreme living both on positive and negative aspects of life. Discussions on other factors like situation, demographics, food, lifestyle, and others could be different from time to time and from one individual to another.
