Negative reactions to royal jelly bee pollen
(Chicago, Illinois. USA)
For about a little more than 2 months I have been taking 2 royal jelly caps daily, in lieu of my daily green foods multi-vitamin, mineral supplement. I was taking them along with other supplements, such as Omega 3-6-9, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, kelp. Little did I know that the 2 near death experiences I went through may have been attributed to the royal jelly. 2 months ago, suddenly I experienced what seemed like a severe asthma attack. Just couldn't catch my breath, even if it gave me a mile headstart. Very rapid heart rate. Bloatedness. Extremely exhausted. Thought I needed a colon cleanse. So I got one. Felt much better, but the overall symptoms were still there. Being into physical fitness, I was shocked that after walking just a couple blocks or flight of stairs, I'd be ready to collapse with exhaustion. All the while, I was still taking the royal jelly daily. On New Years Day, I woke up with severe stomach pains, could barely breathe & was bloated. Thought it was food poisoning, but no vomiting nor any bowel movement. Checked everything I ate the day before, then double checked my supplements & did some math. I had been experiencing these serious health issues around the same time I began taking the royal jelly capsules. Now its been 6 days since I've taken any. How long should it be before these side effects subside?
