In 2007, health all of a sudden got hit by an unexpected massive allergic reaction from a common native bush-plant (Rosemary Westringia). For over 3 months, nothing of modern medicine was of any help. The skin was eaten away by the body’s own immune system. Doctors suggested to go on steroids  as well as antibiotics permanently. Steroids subdue and weaken the immune system, which open the door to opportunistic bacteria to feed on the damaged tissue. Therefore the need to have antibiotics permanently. We did not approve at this method as was causing a long  term damage to the body and was not helping for long term recovery. It was not addressing the underlying problem, but nobody knew or had a clue what the real problem actually was, even the “specialists – dermatologists”.
