Histamine Inflammation Links Electromagnetic (EMF) & Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

Researchers in France have linked electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and multiple chemical  sensitivity (MCS) to histamine and other inflammatory markers. They say both these conditions are easily diagnosed if you know which  markers to check. ELECTRO HYPERSENSITIVITY  This is a sensitivity to electromagnetic fields created by power lines, electronic home appliances, WiFi, and cell phones. While a number […]

Histamine Affects Blood Sugar & Why Eating Makes You Sleepy

Heap of Sugar Cubes Isolated on White Background.

Feeling tired and dizzy after eating, as well as having low blood sugar symptoms between meals, is all too common in histamine intolerance and mast cell activation. Histamine inflammation is a key player in all these, and yet there’s more to it than meets the eye.  histamine and blood sugar Histamine and blood sugar are very strongly […]

Four High Histamine Foods That Just Aren’t Worth It

Different types yeast. Fresh pressed yeast, dry instant yeast and active wheat sourdough starter (wild yeast) on wooden table. Low key. Selective focus. Copy space. Vertical.

There’s many posts I’ve written about low histamine foods that aren’t worth being included in our diet, so it’s time to discuss which high histamine foods are really counter productive and why. Please note, there’s no dogma on this website. If you’re fine with these foods, or any others, and they’re healthy, let that dictate […]

Did mom’s sweet tooth trigger your allergies (or histamine intolerance)?

A new study reveals that a sweet tooth during pregnancy significantly raises the child’s risk of allergies, allergic asthma, eczema and total IgE (the stuff involved in allergies). Since histamine and mast cells are both linked to all of these conditions, it’s possible that our mother’s diet played a role in the development of histamine intolerance or […]

Your Liver on Histamine

The liver plays an important role in breaking down histamine. Any damage or impairment of this organ may lead to excessive levels of histamine inflammation in the body, while too much histamine triggers elevated liver enzymes. This is your liver on histamine. WHAT DOES THE LIVER ACTUALLY DO? The liver’s job is to identify toxic […]

Here’s how to deal with histamine intolerance in a restaurant setting. I eat out a lot. Like really a lot. I have […]

Hypoxia (Low Oxygen) Triggers Histamine & Mast Cell Inflammation

Red blood cells moving in blood vessels with depth of field.

Hypoxia, or a state of low oxygen in the body, causes histamine to be released from mast cells. If we’re already dealing with an excess of histamine due to low levels of the histamine degrading diamine oxidase (DAO) enzyme, exposure to high histamine foods, stress, chemical exposure, or illness and injury; avoiding this lack of oxygen […]

Chill out your brain & fight histamine inflammation with tea blossom

Antioxidants found in the Camellia Sinensis (tea) plant are powerful antihistamine allies in the fight against inflammation. Unfortunately, fermentation of the plant can be problematic for those with excess histamine. A recent discovery of mine could help remedy that. All references at the bottom of post.  Hands up if you’re tired of finding out that […]

How to naturally boost production of the histamine degrading DAO enzyme

Variety of dietary supplements, including capsules of Garlic, Evening Primrose Oil; Artichoke Leaf; Olive Leaf; Magnesium and Omega 3 Fish Oil. Selective focus. Taken in daylight.

We’re told that diamine oxidase’s (DAO) job is to make sure histamine is broken down when it’s no longer needed for things like healing, digestion, and wakefulness. Studies show its activity varies more in women that men, possibly due in part to histamine’s role in causing uterine contractions and miscarriage. While DAO production does decline […]

Negative food experiences make future histamine reactions more likely

Conditioned taste aversion is a survival mechanism whereby animals learn to associate taste with a food that has made them sick; usually because it’s toxic or spoiled. In some cases the conditioned association between a food and sickness is so strong that the amygdala, the primitive part of the brain whose role it is to identify whether something […]
