I have had very swollen eyelids and extremely itchy eyes in the past. This comes and goes for me because now I know how to prevent it based on my diet. I follow Dr. Clarks diet suggestions on what to eat and not eat under her "moldy food" section. I did some serious damage to my liver with these molds (aflatoxin, ergot) in the past and when I eat them now my eyes swell up. Until I read Sapphire7's post I didn't suspect the adrenal gland to be a primary problem but it could be because I know I have an adrenal gland problem too. My plan is to eat according to the moldy food section (which makes me feel great, and makes all my allergies go away, clean my kidneys, take supplements to support my adrenals and do a liver cleanse and hopefully my liver will recover. Hope this helps some.
