I have recently booked to see a nutrician expert reccomended by my gp. She has treated PBC before. So i am hopeful and a little relieved. My itching is scalp and upper back- not too awful. Anyway, I am still looking around on how to work with this and minimise symptoms so they don't limit me in the future too much. My visit to my go earlier this week was useful my panic subsided as she was reassuring with her common sense ways. Really helped me calm down and get practical.
I haven't looked at Holistic advice much but came a cross this and read through as it discusses autoimmunity including PBC. I found it intetesting but also have an intention to continue with meds prescribed as they do seem to help me. (Urso, C&D vits and continue on Sertraline which has been found in some cases to help the itch). I started the day with a fresh fruit, dried raisins , honey, cinnamon coconut milk smoothie . Then decaf tea and cocomilk. You get used to it then it's fine. So far so good. I will try and keep a check on what I eat starting today a good log. The site link has also got die try advice for a range of autoimmune disorders. It's practitioner is Irish based, but no doubt there's similar in the UK and U.S. and other places.
I hope it helps.
