June 2, 2017 Update of Sandy and Bonnie’s NIA Treatment (Dr. Ashkar’s Chickpea Therapy)

Update of Sandy and Bonnie’s NIA Treatment (Dr. Ashkar's Chickpea Therapy)

By Bonnie O’Sullivan, Sandy's mom (June 2, 2017)

As we enter the 8th month of our NIA therapy I have decided (I had to test it over and over) that certain foods that I eat cause my wound to be painful. I ate salad dressing one day and the next time I changed my chickpea my wound had developed a blister on the lower edge. Vinegar is the main culprit. Tomato sauce and coke also cause pain.

Sandy doesn’t seem to have the same reaction to acidic foods that I do.

We have also realized we need to discard our ACE bandages frequently as they lose their stretchability in about 10 days and we wake up with the chickpea loose in the bed. We are going through multiple ACE bandages.

PS I have decided not to start a second chickpea.
