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 […]

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 […]

Histamine and smell

A small study has just revealed that scented laundry washes contain carcinogens that may raise cancer risk if inhaled. This is unlikely to be a problem for people with histamine and mast cell disorders given that our heightened sense of smell and reactions to scents, prevent most of us from using them. The question is […]

Chronic Fatigue, histamine & mast cells

Chalk up another one to a dysfunctional immune system – Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Researchers recently proved (for the first time), that the condition is not psychosomatic (yeah, thanks for calling us hypochondriacs all these years). This wasn’t news to some: according to NHS funded researcher Dr. Theoharides, CFS is one of many mast cell linked […]

Histamine Migraine Fixes

Histamine can cause the recurrence of a headache that’s been treated with meds (like NSAIDs or migraine meds for example), make a pre-existing headache worse, and trigger an immediate or delayed headache. Yet studies on antihistamines as treatments have largely failed, with a few exceptions. I can tell you from personal experience that histamine is […]
