Nothing is sweeter than seeing a client respond well to holistic treatment. The client I am referring to came to my clinic about three weeks ago. He had been diagnosed by his medical doctor with an illness known as Sweet Syndrome http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sweets-syndrome/DS00752/DSECTION=causes
If you check out this link, you will see that this has nothing to do with sweetness. This disease turns its sufferers into modern-day Jobs. You remember Job in the Bible? He was covered head to foot with boils and skin abrasions. Such was the case of my client.
He had been suffering with these skin lesions for two and a half years. He had been seeking traditional medical treatment, with no progress, no healing. The May Clinic states that this disease is idiopathic which means that no one knows what causes it. If there is no determined cause, then it is very hard to treat with pharmaceuticals.
Such was the state of affairs when Mr. P came to see me. After taking a case history, we embarked upon a treatment with homeopathic remedies and herbs. After one week, Mr. P called me, stating that the lesions on his skin were more numerous and it appeared that he was getting worse. What he did not know, (and maybe you need to know too) is that when the body starts to heal, the natural healing process is to push out the offending germ/bacteria/virus/microbe/parasite through the natural elimination pathways of the body. Because we don’t know what the cause of Sweet Syndrome is, one of the best ways to bring him to healing was to encourage the body to eliminate whatever was the origin The skin is the body’s largest eliminative organ, so seeing the lesions become worse in a very short time gave hope that the body was clearing itself.
Mr. P came back into the clinic, and we made up a topical preparation with almond oil and about four different herbal extracts to put on the lesions. After about two weeks had passed, we called him this week to check on his progress. He said that he had been to his medical doctor, and his doctor was amazed at his recovery. In fact, his doctor wants to know what we did to effect this improvement.
Yesterday, Mr. P came into the clinic. He rolled up his pants leg, and I was amazed at the transformation. Three weeks ago, his body was covered with very sore, painful running tiny blisters. Today, the sores are all scabbed over, and are fifty percent smaller. There is no blistering, very little pain, and no inflammation. Mr. P’s testimony is that he is very much better than he has been in the previous two plus years, and he wants to continue working with other health issues in a holistic manner.
As a Naturopath, I see stories like this all the time. People come into the clinic regularly, very frustrated and disappointed with their medical outcomes. Often, like Mr. P, they have been under allopathic medical treatment for many years, and are not getting any better. They have been told that nothing can be done, and that they will have their conditions the rest of their lives. This is just not true.
Life should be sweet. If you are not enjoying health and a sweet life, I encourage you to research holistic therapies. There is a path to healing as long as there is breath in the body.
Until next time,
What an awesome testimony of healing that God wants us to have. You have always taught that if we give our body what it needs ‘naturally’ (hence, what God intended), then the body would heal itself. This is another instance of just that. …and it was done quickly. God loves to show off. Intrigue the medical profession, confound the doctors with the simplicity of God’s design…I love it! Mr. P’s testimony will forever be ‘sweet!’ Thanks for sharing!
Yes. We need to be ‘retrained’ and to go back to basics. How is the body designed to heal? Learn that, and then work along the same principles. Yes, God is showing off! Yea God!
My sister has been diagnosed with Sweets syndrome she has pain in her joints especially the knees. She has the rashes that come about when it is in full bloom. She was put on predisone for a 1 1/2 it has now reocurred. Where are you located? She lives in the Bay Area near San Francisco, Ca. Do you have any doctor there that you could recommend? My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Any suggestions will be helpful
Yes, I know people in California. I will send you their contact information via email. Thank you for reaching out. My client ha no more rashes, and his doctor is amazed. I am located just north of Houston, Texas.
Hello, Dr. Polly. I have a friend who is suffering badly from Sweets Syndrome. I would like to know the nature oils that could be used for her. Thanks so much.
Thank you, Jeannine for reading my blog. Each individual is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. I would strongly encourage you to find a qualified naturopath to help her.
My wife has sweets associated with lupus.
We live in Chico CA. Just north of Sacramento. Can you please forward me any info you have for local doctors.
Find a holistic practitioner that uses EAV technology.
Thank you Polly, I will be waiting for your contacts.

You need to find a holistic practitioner in your area. He will know.
I have had sweets on and off for the last 7 years and
Sat summer saw naturalpath and was put on tintures and high doses of chorella and it went into remission but is now back stronger than ever but am still on tintures and chorella and will see naturalpath when I travel as none avail in Kuwait where I live. I feel that it may be at it’s end as they are all over my feet not sure though but do believe natural cures is answer to this and most diseases
Candy, that is tough! I hope your naturopath can resolve this. Are you using red root? I think this herb is the key.
My daughter has histoicitic? sweets she has been sick for 7 years both deasies are in one biopsy have you ever heard of this
No, never heard of that. Usually two separate diagnosis: one malignant, one not. Was there a tumor and the running sores? What did you do?

That is very sad. There is hope for her. My client has gone back to work, and is now off disability…. Everyone is amazed. Tell me what area she is in, and I will try to find a practitioner near her…. email@example.com
Hi Polly, thank you very much for the promising hope, inspiration and reminder on how the body heals. My dad has been suffering from Sweets since 1996 and has been on prednisone since then, and the effects of the drug are really taking a toll on his body. We live in Boston MA and would welcome any insights you can share / or practitioners you know that have the knowledge in this area to help. Please advise and thanks in advance, RJ
How close are you to New Hampshire? I will try to find someone close to you….
Hi Polly, thank you very much for the quick response. Depending on where in NH, it could be anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours. We are located very close to downtown Boston, and southern NH (places like Nashua) are about 45 minutes. Thank you again, RJ
The lady I am giving your info to works in Nashua, so it should me a good fit.
Good Morning Polly,
Hope all is well. Was the person in Nashua going to reach out directly to me, as I have not heard from anyone as of yet. Please advise and thanks in advance, RJ
Yes, she is going to contact you directly. Dr. Polly
RJ,I know that Wendy has been trying to contact you. Please let me know if you are not getting her emails… Dr. Polly
Hi Polly – Thank you for the follow up note.
I just saw her email come through, so thank you. However, her email suggests that she thinks my dad likes “sweets” versus having “Sweet Syndrome” the autoimmune disease.
To clarify, you were able to help someone who had Sweet Syndrome – no? Please advise and thanks in advance, RJ Butaney
Something may have been lost in the email communication….. I will clarify….
My mother has been diagnosed with Sweets Syndrome and is currently suffering flare ups of lesions on her leg. She is also a post-polio sufferer. My mother has been on different antibiotic therapies but none have really helped long term. I would appreciate it if you could please send me a list of physicians in our area that you feel would be able to of help. Like Lisa, we are also located in Northern California.
Thank you for your time!
I would love to refer you, but you did not tell me what area of the country you are in….Dr. Polly
My mother has sweet syndrome and has suffered from it for several years. We are currently in Hamburg in Germany and was wondering if you know anyone who can assist with this here. Alternatively, may be you can advise what type of natural treatment specialist we need to locate, them perhaps we can work with you and him closely to try to treat the Sweet Syndrome.
I am wondering what the body is trying to detox and remove through the skin, leading to sweet syndrome. Has there been any testing of the discharge to try to understand what the body is trying to achieve?
I would also love to hear from any other patients who have found beneficial treatments for their sweets. Please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Find a good homeopath practitioner. Germany has many. Good luck!
I am so relieved to hear that there’s a treatment for Sweets. I live in San Francisco and would be so grateful if you could recommend someone in the area. I can be reached at email@example.com.
Thanks so much,
How did you appointment go?
Hello my mom has been diagnosed with sweets, she not only gets the sores all over her body but she gets them in the back of her throat. It’s extremely painful. She lives just a bit north of San Francisco ca, do you have any recomendations? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would greatly appreciate it, as we are trying to find other options for her. Thanks
I am going to send you by private email a name of a practitioner in your area who may be able to help.
I have been suffering from sweets for about 5 years. I have bad reactions to prednisone and would love to know if you have anyone you could refer me to in Northern Utah.
Steven Horne St. George Utah email@example.com
I know him. He is a good herbalist. Good luck!
polly, thanks for a wonderful work and post. my friend’s 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with sweet syndrome. she lives in Toronto, Canada. any practitioners you know there to contact? appreciate your help.
Wow, that is young for this disease. I would contact the Canadian registry for homeopathic practitioners. They should be able to refer you to someone knowledgeable.
As with many of the others on this site, I also have a family member, my father, that was recently diagnosed with Sweet’s about a year ago. He has never had any serious medical issue until this popped up. He has been on Prednisone most of the time and tried other medications to try to get off of it. He is open to trying other holistic approaches and I’d be most appreciative if you could recommend a practitioner in my area. He lives in San Carlos, which is about 30 miles south of San Francisco,Ca.
There are some great practitioners in your area… Everyone is closed due to the holidays, but I will get you a contact # on Monday. Dr. Polly

Check out this link: http://naturopaths.healthprofs.com/cam/state/Colorado.html
Ask for someone who does EAV testing. This will get to the root of the problem, and will move you through to cure. Prayers for your dad.
Hello Dr. Polly, I have the same diagnosis of sweets syndrome and have not had any consistent relief in years and years. I live in Jacksonville, FL. Do you recommend someone in this area who could help me? I appreciate any information you may have for me. Thank You!!
Hey, Dana… Try this website. I hope it helps.
I read through some of your comments and noticed you recommended a herbalist in St George, Utah. Do you know of any in the Salt Lake City area? Thanks in advance!
Here is a good link…. Ask them if they do EAV/Bio energetic testing…
[…] US-based naturopath, Biblical nutritional counsellor, and iridologist called Polly Heil-Mealey has been treating Sweet’s syndrome (SS) patients, despite having a very poor understanding […]
This is an interesting comment. I feel sorry for you, that you are in the medical profession (you say you are a nurse) and have suffered SS for many years. If you read my blog correctly, I did not say that I cured Mr. P. I reported what I saw, and his own testimony as to how the herbs and homeopathy helped him. His doctor said that his was idiopathic, but I do agree with you, that many cases are an auto-immune disease.
The medical profession will tell you that there is no cure for this syndrome. Why not look elsewhere and see if other modalities will give hope? I certainly do agree that not all health modalities are appropriate for every person, but if you have tried allopathic treatments, and they have not worked for you, you have nothing to lose in trying homeopathy or herbal remedies. Always go to a trusted professional, as these types of illnesses are very complex and you will need professional help.
And to my nurse friend, you have a very poor understanding of homeopathy and herbal remedies. It is very mean-spirited to strike out against me and the good results that we had dealing with this syndrome. I wish you well, and hope you find help for your issues.
I have suffered Sweet’s Syndrome for close to three years. I live outside of KC, MO…Any recommendations for this area? Thank. You in Advance for your time!!

Polly, similar to the numerous individuals you have assisted, I came in contact with Sweet Syndrome almost two years ago after being bitten by a scorpion. I was the given the typical prescriptions such as steroids and topical creams, but nothing has ever worked consistently. Last December the doctor put me on dapsone and it caused me to have a heart attack five days after taking it. The doctor said I was a Christmas miracle having survived and I tend believe he was correct. I would greatly appreciate your recommendation for a Naturopath health professional in the Austin, Texas area. Warmest regards, Deb Cerbone – firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am sorry to hear of your illness. I have many people who come from Austin to visit with me. Sadly, I have no recommendations for that area. Blessings and good health!
Hey Polly this is Tim I have sweets syndrome do unknown of any around Charlotte NC .That I can contact for help thanks
I’m sorry to hear that, Tim. Look for Naturapathic doctors in your area who practice using EAV or trans-dermal equipment. They will be very able to help you!
Suffering from Sweet’s for years in Ocala FL area. Do you have any referrals for this area?
Please google naturopaths in your area that use EAV technology. That is your best option. Good luck!
I read above about a combination of herbal extracts helped a patient and almond oil was mentioned- what were the remaining extracts that were used in combination that were so successful- PLEASE!
Thank you ☺️
I’m sorry you’re dealing with Sweets syndrome. The cause of the disease is different for every person. You need to find a holistic practitioner. They can help you get to the root of the problem. The remedy is different for every person.
My name is Teddy Wolfe I have been dealing with sweets syndrome since I was 25 I am now 34 I have tried many different treatments learning that I am allergic to sulfa medications has also made treatment difficult I have not been able to find any home remedies herbs spices anything that I can use to help I have used prednisone and other sorts of steroids and also a topical ointment known as triamcinolone I am at my wits end I have painful lesions open sores on my face my neck my back and my arms extremely painful very itchy can you help me
Where are you located? You need to find a practitioner who specializes in EAV assessment. Every root cause is different. This is why the medical approach does not work for everyone. I am sorry that you are having this issue.
