Am I allowed to say the “F” word here? Ok, I’m going for it. FOOD. It’s the four […]

Shutting down histamine reactions (quickly)

My last post addressed the need to get off the histamine-merry-go round, in addition to featuring a quote from my nutritional hero Dr Fuhrman: You can’t put this problem in a vacuum.

There’s more to the low histamine lifestyle than elimination!

UPDATE: there is a ton of misinformation flying around on the internet. I’m constantly flummoxed by how people will attribute feeling awful to chickpeas or a banana rather than the taco bell, potato chips or chocolate they also had.
