i had a nasal surgery in 07 and had my allergies drained... i also tried the Grapefruit-Seed-Extract and nasaal rinse which did not work for me... I also tried to use the Grapefruit-Seed-Extract in my ear and wash with it...(which it said it was directed on the bottle for these uses) i also put it on my nails washed my face with..nothing helped!! my eaar wax is a wet type there are wet vs. dry. is your wet or you believe dry? i wipe very well even use wet wipes but not all the time does it itch... but i can say sometimes. I bloat constantly and more or so after the colonoscopy... and regards to the above i dont think they can detect what os goign on with the procedure... but its not painful but like i said my bloating was even worse after the fact. as far as STERIODS?? like the steriod shots docotrs give you?? becasue i have several.. when sick... i also smoke (which i have quit) and it didnt change... so now im like screw it!!! i rather ppl think i smell cause i smoke!! ligthning cream is no... but i do beach my hair )(dont know if the have any of the same stuff in them) as far as mercury im not sure...i have had fillings when i was younger and i believe im going to ask the dentist if they are mercury but i dont think they are(i have noticed that when i approach metal objects i.e. vehicles, store fixtures, it seems like the smell is stronger or reacting becasue im constantly smelling myself to note changes) sounds crazy....maybe anyone else can vouch on that,idk.i havent got tested for metal toxicity (have you) on that note what kind of odor do you have??
