Look, if you have allergies, you may be allergic to the tobacco you are smoking. This allergic reaction can get worse and cause your throat to close. It is not an easy thing to go through and usually, results in having to go to the emergency room for IV steroids!
I think if I were you, I would put the smokes down and get some allergy testing done. When you are having these reactions, it stresses the heart and your oxygen supply is lowered, if not cut off! In as much, please know that this can be serious and no, I am not trying to harp on you because you smoke. I too, have very bad allergies and have had to go to emergency rooms for help...too many times. My cousin, was very much like me but, older. She had a reaction while alone and it must have been a bad one as she was brain dead by the time they found her. So, I plead with you, do not blow this off! Be proactive, not reactive!
Now, I understand how difficult stopping smoking can be. Therefore, I am going to pray for you and for your situation. I hope you will join me and pray for God's guidance and ability to let go of things which are bringing you harm, and at such an early age. May God guide you and lead you and may He touch your life with health.
Difficulty in swallowing is an indication that you're deficient in iron. It simply means you're anemic. The headache is also an indication that you're anemic. The smoking might be what is causing the heartburn, and could be one of the contributing factor to your anemia. It could also mean you're just not having a proper diet. As a smoker, you especially need to pay special attention to what you eat. To restore your health, this is what you need to do.
Eat all kinds of fruits and vegetables. Include beef (very effective), livers, kidneys, green leafy vegetables, eggs, fish whole grains, almonds, apples,leaf green,turnip green, whole grain, berries, Brazil nuts, cantaloupe, cherries, legumes (include chickpeas, lentils, and red beans), all citrus, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, sweet potatoes, turnip, nuts, grains, carrots, pumpkin, squash, avocados, beets, beans, millet, peaches, pears, pumpkins, seeds, watercress, parsley, broccoli, bananas, okra, purple grapes, kelp, apricots, asparagus, peas, blackstrap molasses, plums, yam and peppermint in your diet.
Drink throughout the day home made fruit and vegetable juices. Include green leafy vegetables in your vegetable juice. In a glass of milk add at least 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and consume at least twice daily.
Ensure that you eat at least 3 times per day. Fill your stomach each time you eat.
At least one of your diet should look something like this:
meat (eg. beef) or fish,
1 or 2 complex carbohydrate (eg. yam, potatoes, pumpkin etc),
A mixture of raw vegetables, (eg. lettuce, tomatoes, shredded pumpkin, broccoli, yellow or red sweet pepper, shredded carrots, parsley),
Varied mixture of steam vegetables (eg green leafy vegetable and/or string beans, and okra, or a vegetable salad)
If you'd like to add drink - preferably home made fruit or vegetable juice.
Have a glass of Green juice each day. Green juice is prepared as follows:
These can be made with alfalfa sprouts, cabbage, kale, dandelion greens, spinach and other green vegetables, including weatgrass. To sweeten and dilute your green juices, try adding fresh carrot and apple juice.
4 - 5 carrots
3 springs fresh parsley
1 large handful spinach
1 large handful kale
1 beet, including tops
1 clove garlic, peeled
1). Thoroughly wash all vegetables, peeling the carrots and beet if they were not grown organically. Cut the vegetables into pieces small enough to fit into the juicer.
2). Process the vegetables in the juicer, and drink immediately.
A good supplement to use along with your diet is Ultra Vitality NutraPack.
Do not take iron supplement unless it is prescribed by a doctor. Because iron is stored in the body, excessive iron intake can also cause problems.
