Test your gut bacteria at home

There’s significant cross over between leaky gut (intestinal permeability) and histamine intolerance and mast cell activation symptoms…for example:

Digestive issues (gas, bloating/IBS)

Seasonal allergies/asthma

Diagnosis of autoimmune disease: RA, Hashimotos’s, lupus, psoriasis, celiac

Mood disturbances: depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD

Skin issues; acne, rosacea, eczema

Food allergies/intolerances

Mast cells and histamine are directly implicated in leaky gut/intestinal permeability, which may be why the antihistamine bioflavonoid quercetin has been shown to help heal the gut lining. You can read more about that here.

Because of this, I’ve found it beneficial to test exactly what’s going on with my gut bacteria using a great service called uBiome.
